Today was so much fun! I sincerely would like to thank each and everyone of you for your partnership. This year was so successful because of all of us working together to support the students. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe summer and I can’t wait to hear about it in September! I also told the students if they bring their “Summer Slide Bingo” back to me (completed with parent signatures) in September I will have a special prize for them. Happy Reading!
Here are a couple of the short plays we have worked on this month. Students practiced the scripts and created props and movement within their groups. It was a lot of fun and many of them memorized their lines! Bravo!
On Thursday afternoon students will have the opportunity to meet their teacher for the 2018-2019 school year and have a classroom visit.
I hope you all enjoyed the scrapbooks that were sent home last week. They were certainly a labour of love and we worked really hard on creating them. I love when the students look back to some of their earlier journal entries and reflect on how much they have changed and grown as students.
One of the students’ favourite math centres is Bingo! They always ask to play, its a great way to practice our fact fluency!
Last Friday we decided to head to Couldry Park to enjoy the beautiful day!
I asked my current students to write letters to the incoming students to help alleviate any jitters they may have coming into grade 1. Here are a couple of the letters. I feel pretty honoured many of them chose me as the best part of our class. I can’t wait to send them out next week!
Yesterday we had an assembly where a group from Tribal Vision Dance came and performed some traditional dances and lead a discussion to help address some pervasive stereotypes
Today we were practicing the concept of estimation. Students found classroom objects and used standard measurements to estimate and then complete an actual measurement of their item.
Today we chose groups and started rehearsing our short plays. Each student was given a part and we will be practicing this week and next. We hope to perform for our reading buddies late next week!
