Pita Pit Lunch

If you are interested in ordering your child Pita Pit Lunch for Wednesday, January 24th please follow the instructions on www.healthyhunger.ca and be sure to place your order by January 18th. No late orders can be accepted.

Weekly Spelling:

You will notice that your child has 12 spelling words in their planner today. We are going to have weekly spelling tests that consist of words that are the most commonly misspelled words by children at this age.  I will also include some words that follow a specific spelling pattern and vocabulary words that are relevant to what we are learning. Please practice as many times as is needed for your child to experience success. Some students may be challenged by very few words and others may find the lists quite challenging. Either way, I think the weekly routine will be of benefit to all. We will have our tests on Fridays and record the results in the student planner for you to see on Mondays. Please let me know if you have any thoughts or questions.

Here is the list for this week:

  1. their
  2. your
  3. because
  4. someting
  5. swimming
  6. lets
  7. skill
  8. skull
  9. slug
  10. slid
  11. structure
  12. strong

Getting Ready:

 

With a little work the classroom is cleaned up and the furniture is back in place to receive the wonderful students of 3C again. The furniture was working great the way it was before, but I know that the students are sometimes exited to see the classroom arranged in a different way. We will give it a try and always know that it can go back to the way it was if it does not suit our learning environment.

I hope you were able to have some extra time off with your children over the holidays and had a wonderful, safe, happy, and healthy Christmas and New Years. It was a busy, but good break for me and I am looking forward to seeing the kids again tomorrow.

The new year brings a few changes to our routine and learning activities. I will provide more information as it is needed. Have a great week everyone!

Merry Christmas:

Thanks to all of my students and families for the wonderful gifts and cards. We enjoyed our last day before Christmas playing games and watching a movie. I hope everyone enjoys the holidays. I look forward to hearing all about your time spent together on January 8th! See you then!

Friday:

Hello everyone, I hope you have been having a great December and the rushing around that Christmas can often create has not been too hectic. On Friday, we are going to slow things down a bit here in 3C. In the morning we plan to enjoy each other and play games together. In the afternoon we plan to watch a movie. I told the kids it can be pajama day again if they wish. I also asked them to bring a favorite game they can play with their classmates. Don’t worry if you don’t have a game to send. We only need a handful anyway. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

What Makes Structures Strong?

The students were happy to have the chance to do some hands on science again this afternoon. It is a lot more fun than just listening and watching. Today they built shapes to test which ones are the strongest. They were great learning partners and did a good job of sharing and recording their discoveries. Hopefully they can put this knowledge to good use when they build their final project after Christmas.

See a Need, Fill a Need:

Warman Elementary See A Need, Fill a Need Campaign December 1 – 20, 2017

This year we will be raising money for The Warman Food Bank and Camp Tamarak. All students who bring in a donation or make a donation online will be given a decoration to colour and add to our Christmas tree. The class that raises the most money will be given a pizza party in the New Year. Thanks so much for your part in this fundraiser. All donations are greatly appreciated!

Have a wonderful Christmas Season!

Story Helpers:

We have done a lot of writing already this year, but today we worked on writing our first fiction story. Fortunately we had some fun, furry help. The kids really seemed to enjoy the cuddly and helpful support of the stuffed animals.
