Newsletter #9

November 2nd Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hello once again!

We had a spooktacular week!

On Monday Ms. Klare, our student teacher, began teaching. She taught us how to make blob monsters. Scholastic book orders were sent home. If you would like to place a secret Holiday order please e-mail and Kaz will wrap it before sending it home. We also spent time in the forest and did a camouflage activity.

Tuesday was a day full of excitement and anticipation. We worked on Halloween letter matching, enjoyed the costume parade and learned more about story telling through wordless picture books. The afternoon was our class party. We all had a blast and everyone enjoyed the shared snack. Thanks to the parents who contributed, what a treat!

On Wednesday everyone was understandably a little tired after the festivities. However, we still enjoyed the day. The K’s worked on their number sense through a hands on math game while the 1’s worked on addition through a domino game. As we were one of two classes at the school all day, we teamed up with Ms. Kerrigan’s class for some buddy reading and a short video about animal babies.

Thursday Ms. Klare led the class in a fun activity about rhyming and we had our Whole School Meeting. The class continues to do a fabulous job of being an audience and Eli, Lizzy and Emma presented this week. The kids went to Music class and Ms. Klare took us on a nature walk to the ‘bog’ in the afternoon.

We have had many kids forgetting when their show and tell day is so here is the list again. This day is the same each week for your child.
Every Monday/Friday: Ava, Cruiz and David
Every Tuesday: Daynin, Eli, Elizabeth and Emma
Every Wednesday: Franky, Jude and Mina
Every Thursday: Oliver, Roscoe and Sylvio

Dates to remember:
Nov. 8 Fulford Remembrance Day Assembly
Nov. 13 School closed for Remembrance Day Holiday (No school on the Friday!)
Nov. 16 Kindergarten Vision and Hearing tests
Nov. 20 Photo retakes 
Nov. 21-23 Book Fair
Nov. 29 Early Dismissal for Student Led Conferences (this is considered your child’s report card so it is important to be available on this day. Sign up sheet was shared in a google doc. If you are unable to use the doc let us know what time slot you would like and we can fill it in for you).

It feels like a cold weekend is ahead! Stay warm!
