Reminder: There is no school tomorrow as it is a Non-Instructional Day. I am off to the SuperConference at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.

We started the day deciding on a charity to fundraise for with our haunted house. Students then set about working on the covers for their Long, Long Letters book. We then had an earthquake drill as part of the BC Shakeout. When we returned to class we had a presentation on Diwali. After recess, we did the Math4today day four week three and then students worked on their Albanesi cards. After lunch, students were given time to work on their passion projects. We then did our daily physical activity before the kids headed off to French class.

Choir practice started our day today. I also took the opportunity to talk about the Borrow a Boot program and how we were lucky to be one of the schools to receive a pair of boots that were used in the Vimy Ridge Memorial ceremony that took place in April. Students then had time to work on their student-led conference forms. After recess, students could work on their student-led conference forms or Albanesi cards or both. After lunch, working with their in-class buddies students had the opportunity to role play their student led conference. It was then early dismissal and it was nice to see so many of you out today to see what your child is learning .

A class meeting started our day today. Most of the grade fours then went to write another section of the FSA test and the rest of the class worked on their Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we looked at some of the things that we have done this year so far to help fill out the student led conference forms. (Just a few people haven’t made an appointment yet, please do so tonight or the system may block you out.) In P.E. we continued with our volleyball skills; trying to keep the ball in the air for three hits. After lunch, we labeled our skeletons and added a rib cage. We ended the day with students filling out part of their student led conference forms.

Book exchange and a very brief time for silent reading started our day today. We then headed to the gym where we watched a delightful presentation from Division One and Eight on the Grandfather’s Teachings on Honesty. We then returned to the class briefly for read aloud and then returned to the gym to work on bumping and serving in volleyball. After recess, the students were off to French where they were learning some new vocabulary. After lunch, we had our appreciation circle and then kids worked on their weekly reflections before having some maker space time.

Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. We then did Math4today Week 3 Day 2 and Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. Today we finished reading the Breadwinner. (The kids asked about the sequel and there is one but I have decided to read something a little lighter for this read aloud.) We are now reading the Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer Holm. (It is quite a funny story!) After recess, students worked on three more letters. (All fifteen letters should now be finished for next Wednesday!) Some students started to work on their covers for their Long, Long Letters book if they were already finished their letters. After lunch, was Passion Time and the kids had time to do some research for their projects. We then did our Daily Physical Activity before the kids headed down the hall for French class to end their day.

When we returned to class the kids worked on two more letters. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the students worked on Math4today, week 3 day 1 and then their Albanesi cards. After lunch, some students worked on finishing their skeleton models and if finished they had a chance to explore the Epic (getepic.com) website.
