Wow, where has the time gone? I have been a little remiss on posting for the last few days. Sorry about that! I will try and do a better job. Darn meetings and appointments have been getting in the way!
This morning we had to do some housekeeping activities as things have been happening in our class.
We have Parent Teacher Interviews coming up and I went through all the papers and have slotted a time for each child’s parents/guardians. I will be sending the note home with you on tomorrow (I hope) with the information.
We had some left over grapes from the fruit/vegetable program so I decided to teach my students some food dehydration skills. We set up the dehydrator yesterday and looked at them today. Had I have been around the school yesterday after 3, I would have had them finished, but due to me leaving for a medical appointment, I turned them down very low. Hopefully they will be done by tomorrow!
We are also doing a FUN Survivor Pool in the class, and I had to give a quick update on that. Tonight is another episode, so we will see who gets voted off, and who will be out of the pool!
We also have an upcoming Field Trip to Wardle Street (a walking field trip, and all forms have ben signed and returned). This is for the Watershed Program. Today we watched a video about it, and did the activities. We will be going on Friday (or perhaps Monday if it is pouring rain on Friday-there is an 80% chance of rain forecasted). I have told the students that they will need a coat (waterproof-or bring an umbrella, and gloves. I told them now, as they need to get it ready for Friday/Monday. If they forget, they will get mighty cold out there.
I also did not give back the Science tests, so I did that this morning as well. I will have 2 students redo the test once they have had a tutorial with me. There are also 7 students who need to redo the test on Provinces /capitals. At lunch I had a tutorial with them to help them learn and remember them!
In Math, we had a really shortened class, but we got to answer a few things. We are on subtraction now.
In Socials, we read Chapter 1 and took notes on the bold faced words, as they are the most important. We will continue the chapter next day.
After recess we had book exchange in the library, then came back to watch the video and have class discussions on the Watershed. Do you remember what watershed we belong to? Ask your child!
After lunch we had PE and we played Gutter Ball. It is a new game that involves kicking, throwing, running and of course some strategy!
During Teacher’s Choice, we finished the activities and the video. I am sure the students will have a great time at the field trip!
- Some students need to study for retests on Provinces/capitals or Digestive System.
- Field Trip on Friday/Monday- need coat and gloves.
Have a great day! Hopefully I will be able to post more regularly. Cheers! Ms. Kneller
