I was out of town over the weekend and almost forgot to post the update! Here it is!

This week we are finishing up our Mrs. Wishy Washy series by reading The Hole in the Tub. We are adding on the sight word and, & working on the letter N and reviewing all of the letters covered so far.

We began our unit on patterns today. We are talking about same and different, and sorting by various attributes (colour, shape, size) this week.

The weather is cold, so make sure your child is dressed appropriately! We go out every day, unless it is pouring rain. Also, sounds like we are in for some “weather” this week, make sure your child has boots and snow pants! Because playing in the snow is one of the best things to do at recess time, and nothing is worse than being outside and being cold.

Remember that December 5 is a PD day, so there will be no school that day. Also, December 23 is the last day of classes before our break. We will be having our class party on that day.

Be looking for another post this week as I have some pictures to put up!

Have a good one,

Mrs. Marshall

Hello Parents:

Just a reminder- we go outside everyday, unless it’s raining. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. This includes mittens, hats, snow pants, winter coats, and winter boots. Thank you.

This week we will be reading a new Mrs. Wishy-Washy book, “Wishy-Washy Day”. We are finishing up R and moving on to M. Our new sight word is ‘to’.

The letters covered so far: F,D,P,B,R, and M.

Sight words covered: can, see, do, the, in, to.

In math we will finish up numbers to 5.

In writing, we are beginning to think about how many words we will be writing and what sounds we hear in those words. In Kindergarten we learn to stretch out the words and write down the sounds we hear. We call this “Kindergarten writing” and it is exactly where we need to be at this time.

Remember there is no school on Friday due to the Professional Development Day.

Have a great week!

And remember: make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather!

Mrs. Marshall

Hello Parents,

It was so great getting to speak with all of you during Parent/Teacher interview time. I hope you are as excited about your child’s growth as I am. It is always amazing to sit and actually see them grow and develop. That’s why I love this job so much.

Here’s what’s up this week:
Mon- Remembrance Day assembly at 1:30

Tues- Remembrance Day- No School

Our letters covered so far: F, D, P, B, this week we introduce R

Our sight words: See, Can, Do, The. We will introduce In

On Monday we will be reading books about Remembrance Day and Peace. On Wed-Fri we will read “The Cow that Went Oink”

In Math we will finish up with numbers 1-5

Remember November 21 is a PD day- No school that day!

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marshall

Hello Parents!

It’s my favourite day of the year, the Sunday after Daylight Savings Time ends. I love it for various reasons, mostly because of that wonderful “extra hour”. We had a great day on Friday. Wore our costumes, ate some food, played, ate some food, played games, ate some food… (you get the idea). Here’s what’s in store for this week:

We are beginning a new book/author study- we will be reading the Mrs. Wishy-Washy series this month. These are fun stories about a woman, Mrs. Wishy-Washy, her animals, and the struggles they get into. We will have a lot of fun with these books!

So far, our sight words have been See, Can, Do. This week we will add The. Our letters have been: F, D, P and this week we will add B and R.

In math we will do more with the numbers 4 and 5.

The room has been moved around a bit, the children will see on Monday. I hope they enjoy the surprise!

Things to take note of this week:

Monday is Day 3 (library day- please return all library books!)

Remember Parent/Teacher interviews coming up this Thurs/Fri. There is NO School Friday. If you’ve forgotten the time, please let me know!

Next Tuesday, Nov. 11, is Remembrance Day. Please note that there is no school that day.

Have a great week, and enjoy the “extra hour” today!

Mrs. Marshall

 

Last Post from me until Sunday or Monday. I promise! October 30, 2014

I wanted to share some pictures from pumpkin activities today, but first I have some exciting news! Tomorrow for lunch we will be having pizza! -No, we don’t know if we’ve won the door competition yet, but someone has generously offered to provide pizza for our class! So exciting (especially since Pizza is my favourite food group!).

Here are the pictures from today! Enjoy:

We weighed the pumpkin:

We took a vote to see if a pumpkin would float:

And then we filled up the sink to see if it would (it did!):

Later in the afternoon, we used string to measure around the pumpkin, then we saw what in our classroom was the same size as the pumpkin. The paper trash can, the compost can, the block shelf, and the ABC shelf.

Had a lot of fun, used some math and science, and it all equalled to a great day!

 

Halloween Fun! October 29, 2014

Hello Parents,

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Orange Day!

Also, we have been pretty busy over the last few days! Headed up by our EA, Melanie, we have been decorating our door for the Hot 105.5 Halloween Door competition!

Here’s what we did, and here’s hoping we win that pizza party!

Happy Halloween!

2 things:

1- the last post you received was labeled as a number because I forgot to put a title on it.  So, if you were afraid to open it because of “spam” don’t worry! It’s about making applesauce!

 

2. On Thursday this week we as a class have decided to wear something orange! They don’t need to be head to toe orange, but if they have something with orange have them wear it that day!
On Thursday Let’s Wear Orange!
