Newsletter #5

October 5th Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Greetings Everyone!

On Monday we made turkey hats, looked for the letter B in the morning message and practiced making the letter B sound. Please ask your child to show you how to make the letter B sound (with your hand under your chin). We also went to the library. Please remember to return the books each week.

On Tuesday we started our oral language learning groups. Olive Mann and Colleen Belliveau joined Kaz and I to run small group workshops. This program will run every Tuesday. We also wrote in our journals about what we were thankful for and learned some new games in the gym.

Wednesday we had fun cutting and peeling apples for applesauce! Thanks to Julia, Caroline and Cynthia for coming in to help. On Wednesday we also worked on counting apples and talked about why leaves change colour in the fall.

Thursday was our Garden Harvest Lunch. What a treat! It was so nice to gather as a school and enjoy the wonderful food each class helped to make. A big thanks to all the parents and students who helped make this happen. At our whole school meeting, Jude and Roscoe presented their artwork to the school and we started a unit on spiders.

The kids have enjoyed sharing their special items from home on their show and tell day. Next week they are encouraged to bring something that begins with the letter ‘Cc’. Here is the list again:

Monday/Friday: Ava, Cruiz and David
Tuesday: Daynin, Eli, Elizabeth and Emma
Wednesday: Franky, Jude and Mina
Thursday: Oliver, Roscoe and Sylvio

We still haven’t found a Class Rep for our class. If you would be willing to take this on please let us know.

There are a number of important dates coming up for you to mark down in your calendars.

October 9- Thanksgiving- schools closed
October 13- School in session and PJ day!
