This week is a little crazy with Monday being a snow day and the teacher walk-out on Thursday.
Thanks to Rachel's mother, her grandmother and David's mother, we were able to set up the houses today while the students were rehearsing for the Merry Memories in they gym. Tomorrow we will be decorating them, please feel free to come down and check them out after the concert.
This is most likely my last post before Christmas, due to ETFO regulations.
Please continue to have your child reading and talking about their books on a daily basis, it is really the main way to improve your child's reading, comprehension and thinking skills. Take every opportunity to point out math around you and in the home. They really need to see the real world connection; which was quite evident during the making of the gingerbread houses. Please continue the typing skills. We have been unable to finish the Provinces and Territories assignment. Anything the students can find out about their assignmed province/territory, would be helpful to him/her.
I wish you all a joyful, healthy and happy Christmas vacation. Thank you ever so much for your communication and support, you make this job - which often seems daunting - so much more joyful and better to do. I am looking forward to the New Year, where we'll be wrapping up 1st term and launching into second. Your children are really such a joy to teach.
