First thing this morning we finally did Daily Fitness!  Well done!

In Math we completed P. 52 and 53 in our Jump Math books.  Pleses finish it for homework if not completed in class.

We went over the Socials worksheet aa well as I showed the class what a beaver hat looked like, and why the fur trade was so important as the Europeans loved those hats!

After recess, the boys went to Mr. Hoshowki’s class to learn about hand washing and hygiene.  All the grade 5  girls came to my class to meet with the Public Health nurse and we discussed everything about menstruation.

After lunch we had PE and the students played Danish Kickball.  We had a lesson on Fair play and what happens when one team is stronger than another team.  It is a hard lesson to learn, but was much needed in our class.  We discussed about easing up if you are the winning team and not boasting about your score.

Last block was Drama with Mr. Ma.

Today was an incredibly busy day!  It started off with a bit of Math in our Jump Math books, then we handed out milk and carrots to all of the classes in our school.  The students did a fabulous job and are getting so quick as well!  Well done grade 5’s!

We had Mrs. Larson come in today and she discussed sexual abuse today.  The students watched a video and we discussed it.  they learned they needed to tell a trusted adult about this, and that it is NEVER their fault!  During this time we also had a Hold and Secure Drill.  This means that the students must stay in their locked classrooms and have the window blinds closed.  This could happen if there was a bad person or a wild animal on the grounds and we want to make sure everyone is SAFE!!!!!!!

After recess, we read part of Chapter 5 from the novel, and it was hilarious today!  Ask you child what Jess and Leslie did to Janice Avery!

We watched a short video on Remembrance Day and had a discussion about it.  There are some books that students can look at about Dieppe and Vimy Ridge.  We then completed our Agenda books and got ready for lunch.

We left at 12:20 for the  Nestle Water tour.  The students had a great time there and learned about the aquafer and how they only use so much water so not to deplete it all.  All the remainder of the water goes into Kawkawa Lake, which eventually goes into the Fraser River.  It was a very interesting tour and the students learned about how bottles are made and shipped out.  I will include some pictures today!


  1. Bring back library books for tomorrow
  2. PAC Fundraiser-Neufeld Farms
  3. Letter to parents-Public Health Nurses coming in to discuss puberty
  4. Rob’s business card (from the workshop on Friday)
  5. Look at the book from Stephanie about the watershed and come with one interesting fact about it!

Have a great day!  I wonder who will get voted off of Survivor tonight?  Will it be your person?  Cheers!  Ms. Kneller
