Circle of power and respect started our day today. Students then had more time to complete their reflections.  Some students worked on getting the room back to more how it looked before Global Fair.  Read aloud was before recess.  After recess, we talked about the upcoming term: science fair, the play, socials and more.  In PE we did a great job with the Troika and there were some sad voices when we ran out of time for all partners to do the Virginia reel.  In the afternoon, we looked at the daily lives of the Maya, Inca and Aztecs with Ducksters history website. We ended the day with the second half of Math4today and then the students worked on their Albanesi cards.

Daily physical activity started our day today. We then did our appreciation circle. We then headed down the hall to Division One where we saw presentations on Ancient Rome ranging from Chariot Racing to Juliet Caesar and the Emperor Nero. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we did our presentation for Division One. After lunch, we visited Division Nine where we heard stories from many of the students in the class. We ended the day presenting for Division Nine.

Thanks for all the hard work this week! Have a great weekend!

Circle of power and respect started our day today. We then were off to Division 10 for their presentation on Surrey Now and Then. It was a play about a family that comes to settle in Surrey in the 1800’s; lots of fun and lots of humour. I especially liked the thought bubbles. We then got back to the class early so I showed them the kindness boomerang video that I wanted to show for Pink Shirt Day. We also had a chance to do read aloud. I was very thankful for this as we missed participating in the Global Read Aloud day last Thursday because we were so busy getting prepared for Global Fair. After recess, we presented for Division 10. After lunch, we presented for Division 14 and then went to the kindergarten classroom to see the wonderful stories that they created using the animals from the Salish Sea.

This evening it was so nice to see so many of you come out to check out the work that we did for Global Fair. It was a very busy evening but the kids are always happy to show their hard work.

The students started their day filling in their information on their Global Fair passport. We then did our presentation for Division Two. After recess, we visited Division Two. They had an Ancient Egyptian Museum. Some of the exhibits included the Rosetta Stone, King Tut, fashion, religion, and hieroglyphics to name a few. After lunch, we visited Division Seven, our buddy class to see their Theatre Under the Stars. We saw several performances by stories from Mo Willems and one from A.A. Milne. We ended the day giving a presentation for Division Seven.

Reminders: Pink Shirt Day is tomorrow. Please remember to wear pink to stand up to bullying. Tomorrow starts global fair. Also remember, Thursday is our parent evening from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Please join us!

Circle of power and respect started our day today. We then tried on chitons/togas. (We are still short a few sheets. We then practiced our introduction. (Still a few too many students that are not sure of their lines.) After recess, we had some time to get students that were not finished to get caught up. In PE, we continued with dance. We got the Sasha song to work and then we tried the Troika. It still needs a little work. In the afternoon, we tried to get all the people caught up and the room ready. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to practice what our complete presentation will look like or how long it will take. I guess we will work the kinks out tomorrow.

A class meeting started our day today. We then did our appreciation circle because we were away on Friday. Students then worked on their global fair artwork or doing things to help get the room ready for Wednesday. After recess, we did a read through of our introduction. There are still many students that do not know their lines. Yikes! After lunch, with Mrs. Sandhu, the students played basketball in PE. When they returned to class the kids had access to the laptops to put the finishing touches on their comics.
