This morning we continued to work on our Jump Math books. There was nothing assigned for homework.

We handed out the milk and cucumbers today, then we went over the rock cycle. It was very funny when we went around and around, seeing that it a continuous circle!

After recess, the students went to see Mr. Froese for dance.

In language Arts, we did a combo of things: catch up of many things and spelling puzzle pages.

After lunch, the students had their test on Health (first aid), then we started on our little pouches. It will take us awhile until it is all finished.

Well, what a busy day! Was rather strange at that too!

This morning we did a SNAP Assessment practice on Division. I have to record this information to the School District so I thought we would get it over and done with now, rather than later on. We continued to work on fractions after that review. We will do another review tomorrow, then the real test on Wednesday.

We continued to read Fatty Legs in Socials. We learned what Honey buckets were, as well as the dreadful Smallpox outbreak that occurred many years ago.

During Recess, the students were called in as there was a bear siting near the school grounds.

We had a worksheet to complete in partners in French.

Later we did Unit 15 in Spelling. It is on compound words and one contraction.

At lunch the students were kept in because of the bear sighting! Better to be safe than sorry!

After lunch we had PE inside and played California Kickball.

Last block was a fiasco! I wanted the students to take their STAR Reading Test but then the system was overwhelmed and kids were getting frustrated (as was I). I will give them some time tomorrow to make up for the mistake on my part!

Homework:

1. Science Test on Mining on Thursday
2. Math P. 24-26 in Jump Math
3. Math- SNAP Assessment on Wednesday!

Have a great day! See you all tomorrow! Cheers! Ms. Kneller

This morning we went over 2 things: I had to go over the Survivor plot twist as it was really exciting. Sorry to Lily, Brynn, Nicara and Luccia for having Drea, their pick getting voted out last night. We still have many class members in the pool, so good luck to them! The second thing was discussing Moose Hide Day. We all wore a piece of moose hide to show we respect women and children and will not hurt or harm them. I gave the students a card that explains the significance of this.

This morning we did something very different! We had an extra PE class so we are getting more and more prepared for the upcoming Intermediate Track Meet on Monday! We did the 400 M , baseball throws and long jump.

We returned and finished reading about life at St. George’s Residential School. We then read a report about the food written by an inspector. We will continue to read it next class.

Spelling puzzle pages were even more fun today as they got to chew gum and work with a partner! Glad to see everyone finished it today in class!
