20170310_133609.jpgIt was so great to see all of you and speak about how great your child is doing last Thursday! I hope you are as proud of their growth as I am! This is the bulletin board I had hoped would be ready before Parent/Teacher Interviews. Unfortunately we ran out of time last week, so I thought I’d at least show you a picture. We mixed the paint for the orange, green, and purple, which is always a lot of fun!

This week we will continue to talk about colours and rainbows. We will finish up our number printing, and will have a lot more fun with our problem solving tasks. Our sight words will remain by, come, on. We will be talking about our “bold beginnings” with our writing, and will continue as usual with guided reading.

Lots to do this last week before break. If anyone is interested in sending in something for St. Patrick’s Day, please feel free! Friday will be a fun day, with the “holiday” and the last day before March Break.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, let me know!

It’s hard to believe there is only a week and a half until March Break. Lot’s to do in that time though!

In Math we are looking at numbers and discovering ways we can break them into two parts.

In literacy we are learning the sight words on, come, by. Our big book is What Will The Weather Be Like Today.

In writing we are learning about planning our stories into a beginning, middle, and end. We have created our covers, and now we are plotting our stories. Next week we will write them:

Guided Reading books will go home this week. Please remember to have them back by Thursday, especially as this is a short week.

Remember Thursday evening and Friday day are Parent Teacher Interview Days.I look forward to seeing everyone and discussing your child’s progress. There will be no school on Friday.

Once again there will be a Book Fair. Our class is scheduled to go to the Fair on Thursday afternoon.

Have a great week!

It’s hard to believe March is almost upon us! Time will really start to fly now! With March comes report cards and Parent/Teacher interviews. I am sending home the slips today. I used the same times as the fall interviews, so if that time won’t work for you, please let me know ASAP and we can figure out a time that works best.

This week:

Math: We will be looking into separating numbers into two groups (part/part/whole) and representing our thinking on paper.

Literacy: A new book: The Jacket I Wear in the Snow

Sight words: love, you

We have finished our letters, but will continue to review them, particularly our letter formation. Remember: Where do we start our letters? At the Top!

For Guided Reading I will be doing a quick assessment of our progress on Monday and Tuesday. If time allows, I will be sending books home on Tuesday. If not, that practice will resume next week.

In Writing, we are thinking about the structure of a book- the cover, the beginning, middle, and end, etc.

I am sending home our printing journals!

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marshall

Due to Pajama Day this Friday, make sure your child is dressed for sledding in the morning. We will be going out around 9:30 and will stay outside until after first recess (10:45).

Pajama day is this Friday. I will be in touch about sledding.

As for our Open House, that is on hold for now. I would still like to have parents in, but perhaps sometime later on in the year when the weather is more predictable.

I think that’s actually all! Thanks to Paula for the message about PJ day!

Hello Parents!

What a week last week, here’s hoping this is not a foreshadowing of the rest of our winter! I am looking forward to getting back together and getting back on track, I would imagine we all feel that way right about now!

This week we will finish up our letters: A and J. I will do a quick review of the sight words covered so far, I have a feeling we are all pretty strong with these so I will be adding new words later on this week. I don’t want to commit to what ones just yet though.

We will begin a book series about a penguin named Tacky. It’s a great series of books about a penguin who isn’t like all of the other penguins.

In Math we will continue talking about how to break a number into two parts (2 and 4 equal 6, 3 and 3 equal 6, etc). We call this “part-part-whole”, and it’s the foundation for understanding addition and subtraction.

I still have plans to go sledding. If the weather and the snow holds, I hope to go sledding on Friday, so let’s keep our fingers crossed!

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Hey Parents,

As was predicted, we’re getting hit with yet another snow storm. Wanting activities for your child to do on these days? How about giving them some paper and pencils/markers/crayons to do some writing? Let them sound the words out that they don’t know- we call that “Kindergarten Writing”. There are also those sight word games I sent home last week (or was it the week before? Time flies!).

In regards to the Open House/Tea: That will go ahead on Friday.

Friday is also Pajama Day for the whole school. Send in a loonie for Easter Seals! This years Easter Seals ambassador is a friend of mine, so I am so excited for him!

Looking into the weather for next week, I am thinking it would be nice to go sledding either Monday or Tuesday. I will let you know which day over the weekend.

Enjoy the downtime, and hope to see you all tomorrow afternoon!

Mrs. Marshall
