Newsletter #2

September 14th Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hello Everyone!

The children continue to do an excellent job with school routines and expectations. Everyone is getting used to the morning sign in routines and they are learning to listen well and share with their friends.

 This week we created art inspired by the book, “Ish” by Peter H. Reynolds, worked with words and names, and started creating an alphabet out of natural objects.

We continue to enjoy learning in our forest and the children often say “forest time” is their favourite part of the day.

On Thursday we went to our second Whole School Meeting.  This will happen every week, where we sit with all of the other students in the skylight area.  We sing O' Canada then Happy Birthday to anyone who had a birthday during the past week.  Sometimes a class presents something they have been working on. Thursday we also had our Terry Fox run. Thanks for all of the donations, it was a fun event.

The grade 1’s will begin their home reading program next week. Kindergarten students will start this in January.

A Reminder about the photo board projects for next week:
Monday- David and Emma
Tuesday- Eli and Franky
Wednesday-Elizabeth and Mina
If you need more time, or forgot to bring yours in this week, let me know and we can change your date.

We will visit the library on Mondays. Please remember to return the borrowed books each week.

A reminder that parent-teacher interviews will take place next Wednesday (Sept. 20th) and that students are dismissed at 11:30am. Please sign up for a meeting time slot, the sheet is by the classroom door.

Also, Tania needs the forms that were sent home last week back as soon as possible. If you haven’t already returned them, please bring them in Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Ara and Kaz
