The kids want to do a Secret Santa Gift Exchange for Christmas this year. My idea is that they will pick names out of a hat and then using two Christmas socks, fill them both with the gift or gifts they would like to purchase for that student. They can place candy, small toys, lip-gloss, finger-boards, etc. Tie it with a bow and ta-da!
Ask your child about their math project. There are currently 4 different projects happing in class. Each student chose what they were interested in. We have, A class picnic, A class pizza party, The tallest building and The longest bridge. The Due date is December 15th.
Report cards come out Monday after school. If you need to speak to me please regarding them or would just like to discuss your child's progress so far please sign up for the parent teacher conferences on December 2. Here is the link: https://www.schoolinterviews.ca/kiosk?ecode=sy42h
There will be No school December 2nd, 2016. (Because of the parent/teacher conferences)
Our elementary Christmas concert is on December 8th. It will be at 6:30 -7:30. Save the date.
I love decorating for Christmas, and I hope we will have the most decorated classroom! We have already started with out desks and some other items. :)
Dear parents, hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did!
Well, Christmas time is quickly coming up, so this week when we can, we will be doing crafts for class decorations. We will be decorating our front entrance with all class made items.
If you could kindly please send a picture of your child as a baby and a family photo that you do not mind being displayed on our front door, that would be wonderful.
We have already decorated our desks (which by the looks of things, might not last too long :) They are easily ripped. I have asked students if they have extra lights we could borrow, that would be great but please do not buy new or short yourselves. I had lots (LOTS) of icicle lights from last year, but they are very old and more than half are not working; so i cannot use them for this year:(
We will be having a Secret Santa Gift Exchange in the classroom. My idea this year revolves around socks!!! YES SOCKS! Once students are paired with their Secret Santa person, they are to buy a pair of Christmas socks and only gift what they can fit inside. Hopefully they are not super stretchy socks!!!
Socials projects were due today but we did not have a chance to present them, so students have received a small extension; until next class on Thursday.
My math class has started on their new math projects. We will work on these until Christmas break. They are due on December 16th.
The world of Disney spirit day turned out really well!!! Enjoy the photos. More photos under the PHOTO tab.
4Today we made poppies using cupcake liners as well as coffee filters. I had to use a blow-dryer to quickly have them dry to use as our craft! They turned out great! Have a blessed remembrance day!
Next week we have a math quiz (Just my math class) on exchanging more of one place value to the other, ex. 13 ones into 1 tens and 3 ones. Also, using regrouping where necessary when adding and subtracting.
Also, on Monday, we have a bible quiz. The students were given a study guide of words they need to know as well as the names of the books in the division of the old Testament. They should know what the 4 divisions are and at least one book from each; or from which to which book they contain.
Our spirit day is on Friday of next week. It is called the "World of Disney" please help your child find a Disney costume to wear. Treats are okay to be brought to class as well. We will probably have a movie for the last two blocks during our art class.
Parent teacher conferences are just around the corner. The sign up sheet (document) will be available for parents on Saturday the 19th. I remember from last year that spots filled up quickly; especially the last 2 hours of the day. If you are having trouble with the link or directions you can contact me and i believe i can book time for you through my site. :)
So, there was a debate on SUN FM of when it is too early to start decorating for Christmas holidays, since we are off on December 17th, i would like to decorate on the last week of November.... I love decorating!!! Its is lots of work- to put up and take down! I had lots of Christmas lights, but i had to throw away soooo many! if you have any extra you wouldn't mind borrowing to me, i would be very grateful! Also, we will need some wrapping paper- so we can wrap our desks with!! I am so excited:)
Report cards are due within a week for me, and will be out to your child on the 28th. I have spoken to a few parents with concerns, but if you have not heard from me, or have some concerns to speak to me before hand, please email me so we can set up a quick meeting.
FYI- there are still cases of lice happening here and there, so please be vigilant and check your childs hair every once in a while, as well, there have been a few cases of the stomach flu going around. Kids LOVE to share!
As always, have a great weekend!
