Reminder: Science World forms are due tomorrow! We still need driver/supervisors!

We started the morning with fine arts where we continued our look at Indigenous art; today it was the beaver head. We then did our class generated questions Kahoot. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we did Math4today, week 11 day 4 and then kids worked on their Albanesi cards. After lunch, students had time to work on their science projects. (I think we will start presentations next week, perhaps if some are ready to go for Tuesday!) It was then our early dismissal.

Reminder: Early Dismissal tomorrow at 1:30 and Science World forms are due on Thursday.

The students started the day off with time to work on their Science projects. We then did our Daily Physical Activity and our Circle of Power and Respect, Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we played a couple of rounds of Kahoot (Winter Olympics and Scientific Method.) Students then were to generate their own question and answers for our own class Kahoot. If they had time remaining they were to work on their research for the explorer journal. After lunch, we did Math4today and then students had time to work on their Albanesi cards. We ended the day with our buddy class where we read the story the Greedy Triangle and then students had time to create their own triangle art pieces.

Our class meeting started the day today. I then shared the green screen things that I did on my Pro D Day on Friday. Students then did Math4today and then answered some survey questions from the students in Division 4, finally working on their Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the kids set about making some designs for healthy food trucks. In PE, we played “purple” ball in the gym. After lunch, the students worked on their science projects. We hope to have some presentations starting next week. Students then had time to work on their literature circle preparation for Thursday’s class.

We started the day by reading the story the Great Race. The students then received their new literature circle novels. They should have the chapters to read recorded in their planner. (February 22, March 1, March 8 and March 15.) We then started our new read aloud novel, The Wild Robot. After recess, the students did Math4today week 12 day 1 and then worked on their Albanesi cards. After lunch, the students had time to work on their passion projects. We then did our Daily Physical Activity and shared the encouragement speeches that were missed due to absence from last week. The students ended the day with French class.

Science World notice home today! It is due on Thursday, February 22nd!

We started the day with the kids either drawing a picture that incorporated the number 100 into it because today was our 100th day at school or they were to use the tangrams to create a picture or a combination of the two. Students then had time to work on their science projects. We finished our read aloud novel, Ban This Book, which was fantastic. We then selected our next read aloud novel, The Wild Robot. It is on the Global Read Aloud list for this year! After recess, the kids worked on the assessment for week 11 and then their Albanesi cards. We then had our potluck lunch. Thank you to everyone that contributed! After lunch because there is no school for the kids on Friday we had the Maker Space time today.

Reminder: Please bring your potluck items for tomorrow’s lunch.

Daily Physical Activity and Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. I then introduced a combined Language Arts/Social Studies assignment where the students will create a journal entry as if they were one of the explorers that came to British Columbia. (Simon Fraser, James Cook, George Vancouver, etc.) During the time that they had to work in class they were to select their explorer and begin to answer questions about that explorer’s journey to B.C. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, students worked on math4today week 11 day 4 (assessment tomorrow!) and then their Albanesi cards. Reminders were made today about being organized with the math books and writing the card number, date and making any corrections to their work. After lunch, students shared their SS Beaver stories and we discovered that it would be about a 10 day journey from Fort Langley to Sitka, Alaska. Students then worked on their Valentine’s card holders before our buddies arrived. In Buddies, we read Grandfather Tang’s Story and then the kids had an opportunity to explore with tangrams.

Happy Family Day to everyone, reminder no school Monday!

We started the day with book exchange and silent reading. We then did our very first round of encouragement speeches. They were all really well done. Our weekly reflections were up next. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the kids were off to French where they started work on a project. After lunch, we had Maker Space time before we headed to the gym where we did six stations for Jump Rope for Heart. (If you haven’t done so and wish to do so please send in your donations. Thank-you!)
