I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend!
Our last new www of the week are...
Please make sure your child is practising their www and that they can print sentences using these words. At this point in the year, I expect to see good letter formation, proper spacing of words, punctuation, capitalization and proper spelling of www (word wall words). The students are expected to try and use familiar word family spelling patterns to assist them with less familiar words. This will be the last week of www for this year!!!
NOTICE: This Friday, June 22 will be our picnic at Champlain park. Students will be spending the afternoon playing games and having their final snack at the park. If you want to send in snacks the students can share with others, please make sure the snack is nut-free. We will be at the park with the other Grade 1 class and the Grade 1/2 class.
**Please RETURN ALL BOOKS borrowed for the reading program. The students certainly made great gains in their reading levels. Please keep reading throughout the summer to be ready for grade 2!
In Religion, the students are just finishing up their Family Life unit, then they will continue with the last unit in Religion.
In Math, the students just finished their work on probability. This week, we will be looking at Glyphs, as a different way of organizing data.
In Science, the students continue to investigate living and non-living things.
Our Drama production:
Our class is very excited to present their plays:
We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday, June 20th from 9:30-10:30 am! We will be getting our costumes ready for our drama production. If your child has a costume or props (an apron, little toy turtles, bowls...) they would like to use during their presentation, please send it in (LABELLED). We are having a full dress rehearsal tomorrow (Tuesday, June 19th), so please have your child bring in their props for the play!! We are all looking forward to the presentation!!
The reading worm: Many students have been returning their filled reading log sheet. Well done! We have worked so hard on our reading skills that I am sure we will be able to read lots and lots of books during May and June. For every 25 books (or chapters, if they are reading chapter books) they read, the student gets to colour in an apple, write their name on it and write their personal total. We already have a number of apples posted on our reading worm wall, and I look forward to many more before the end of the school year. Three students have already read 100 books/chapters!! I wonder how many others will read that many by June 27th?? Please remember to read at least 20 minutes a day with your child. This will help them reach the next reading level!
With the arrival of warmer weather, please make sure your child is dressed properly (shorts and t-shirts, a hat). Please apply sunscreen to your child before they leave home. If you would like your child to reapply sunscreen at school, please send it, but please make sure they know how to do this themselves. Please make sure they have a water bottle. Thank you!
