Last Day of School!

It is with a tear in my eye and a smile on my face that I say a farewell to my students.  I will miss them like crazy and I hope they all have a wonderful summer!

I was so proud that they finished their special pouch, that they can keep a memory of their life in there, just as Shi-Shi-Etko did before going to Residential School.  Here are a few pictures of the finished product!  To those who did not finish it, I hope you will finish it over the summer!

This morning we did SNAP Assessment on Place Value.  I will go over these with the students tomorrow.  Some students did much better!  YEAH!

During Language Arts, we completed a test on the novel.  We will start the dramas tomorrow!

After recess we had a little bit of cake to say farewell too Neve, as it is her last day today!  Sorry about cutting the pieces incorrectly! OOPS!

We then watched a Bill Nye video on Rocks and Soil, discussing the three types of Rocks: Metamorphic, Igneous, and Sedimentary.

Later we read over a letter about the food served at Residential Schools.  It is horrible the food they gave the kids!

After lunch we played on the computers,. learning how to do Data Tables, and charts (bar graphs, pie charts  or 2 or 3 D ones).  It was some self learning time, and students had to figure things out!

We went to the Entrepreneur show in the gym where kids in Grade 6 were selling their wares that they had made.  It was great to see such variety!

Last block( last 20 minutes) we worked on our pouches!


  1. Permission Slips and $2 for Tashme Museum
  2. Bring back library books ASAP
  3. Be prepared for Track Meet tomorrow (if you were selected to go)

Cheers!  Ms. Kneller

This morning we continued to work on our Jump Math book.  I did not assign anything for homework.  We are continuing to answer questions on fractions, like 2/5 of 10 is _____  Can you figure it out mathematically?  You multiply 2 X 10= 20, then divide by 5= 4!

In Language Arts, we finally finished the novel, Attack of the Killer Potatoes!  What a great ending!  Ask your child how it ends!   We did a worksheet on the end chapter and the epilogue.  Do you remember what an epilogue is?

After recess we had Health class where we learned how to perform CPR.  We used the dummies from the district and learned the steps.  Many students did not press hard enough, and realized how difficult it can be.  Saving lives is hard work!

We then completed a self evaluation needed that will go home with students and in their permanent files.

During Socials, we read about the food that was served to students in Residential School.  Not too good!  Ask your child about it!

After lunch we did Unit 14 in Spelling, followed by another self evaluation.  We then did Art, continuing to work on our pouches.


  1. Permission Slips and $2
  2. Entrepreneur Day- Wed. afternoon -Bring money if you want to buy stuff the grade 6 classes are making
  3. Spelling Worksheet-Unit 14
  4. Bring back your library books
  5. PE strip is needed for tomorrow!
  6. I will be away tomorrow, please make sure behaviour is in check!
  7. Cheers!  Ms. Kneller

This morning I made sure everyone was caught up in Math so many had to work during recess or lunch. Thankfully, everyone has finally finished!  We worked on pages 209-210 today.

Students had dance with Mr. Ma, followed by reading Chapter 21 and doing the questions for this chapter.  It was assigned for homework if not completed in class.

During Science, we did a review of Chapter 10, then did a Kahoot game as a review as well.  We will have a test on Chapter 10 on Thursday.

After lunch we went outside to practice hitting a ball and throwing/catching a baseball.  Next day we will develop teams and try a real game!

During French, we copied notes on the body, then did some catch up work while I did some recording of the students!


  1. Ch. 21 in novel studies
  2. Math- end of P. 210
  3. Science- crossword puzzle-ch. 10 review

This morning we did p. 203-205 in class.  It was assigned for homework if not completed in class.

During Language Arts, we read Ch. 19 and did the questions for it.  Thankfully, everyone completed it in class!

After recess, I gave the students some cabbage soup to taste.  This is something that the kids ate regularly at Residential Schools as it is cheap and easy to make, and is warm. Most liked it, but thought it would not taste that great if you had to eat it all the time!  We read a worksheet about why parents had to send their children to Residential Schools and took some notes on it.

We completed the Unit 13 Spelling test and I also handed back the French test from yesterday.

During Buddies, we read Franklin books and some students took a test on them.  My class does an excellent job reading with the younger students.

At lunch we had the First Nations Honouring Ceremony in the gym. Each student had their certificate read out for what they accomplished, and a gift was given to them at the end of the day along with their certificates.   It was fabulous, and I am so very proud of my kids and their accomplishments this year!

After lunch we talked about a huge project we are going to try and do.  We want to build a log cabin style building out of cardboard tubes.  It was very difficult to get things figured out.  More work is needed in this area!

Last block the students had book exchange.


  1. Hot Dog orders for Fun Sports Day are due on Monday.
  2. Math- to the end of P. 205
  3. Read for at least 1/2 hour!

Hey, are any students or parents reading this???? If you are, could you please write in your child’s agenda that you are!  I would appreciate to know who is actually reading this!  Thanks!  Have a great weekend!

Cheers!  Ms. Kneller
