October News

It’s hard to believe that we’re a month into school! It was a busy September and we enjoyed lots of outdoor activities. We had a fun day at Bird’s Hill Park going on a hayride and then a wiener roast for lunch. We started music class with Beth on Wednesday mornings and we worked on keeping a beat and playing louder and softer. We had our first ‘Hot Dog John” lunch and “Waffle Wednesday” of the year. We’ve also been busy working on Daily 5 activities learning about place value in math and we started reading the book Wonder as a class read aloud. We did a Kindness rock challenge where we all painted rocks and hid them in Kildonan Park. We were lucky to also have Mr.Sova visit to teach us some judo. Kim taught the classes about orange shirt day and how we can honour residential school surviviors. On September 29th we wore orange shirts for the opportunity to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

October 9-16 is Fire Prevention week and we’ll be practicing what to do in case of fire. It’s a good idea to have a plan set up at home for what do and it’s also a good time to check and make sure your smoke alarms are working. In October, we are looking forward to meeting our new Roots of Empathy baby.

We hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend!

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a fun and relaxing winter break.

 In December, we wrote letters to Santa and we were thrilled when only days later we got our replies from the North Pole. Hot Dog John came on the 14th and delivered a book for everyone from Santa. We all made gingerbread houses on the 21st. Fizzle the elf returned to visit and we enjoyed seeing some of the silly things he does.

December News

This month we worked hard and we really enjoyed all the beautiful November weather.  In Roots of Empathy we had another great visit with baby Abigail and her mom, Ainsley. She had lots of smiles for us, especially when we sang the hello and goodbye songs. We started learning about the zones of regulation and how it can help us regulate our feelings and control how we react to a situation. Both Coach classes went on a field trip to the zoo which tied into our study in science on animal habitats. The students did a great job doing a scavenger hunt finding animals from different habitats. Mr.Sova also came for another visit to teach us more about hoop dancing. In December we are looking forward to our big family dinner on December 20th. We are having a traditional Christmas dinner. Yum!  We are going to be studying about communities in the north and the animals that live there. We are also excited to make our gingerbread houses. We hope everyone has a great winter break and all the best for 2017.

On the 19th we got to spend the day at Deer Meadow Farms near Bird’s Hill. We went on a wagon train ride, pet lots of different animals and went through the corn maze.

May was a busy month at Coach. We took a day trip to the Narcisse snake dens on May 5 and it was +32 that day! The snakes were very active especially in dens 3 and 4. The students learned how to safely pick up and hold a red sided garter snake.

On the 16th we worked on a scrapbook for our Roots of Empathy baby and had a farewell for her on the 30th. She grew so much this year and we enjoyed looking at all the pictures.

On the 17th, 24 chicken eggs arrived and we learned how to care for them. We have an incubator in the classroom that we keep at 99.5 degrees and they are due to hatch around June 2. We also had 60 painted lady butterfly larvae arrive and we are caring for them until they go into their chrysalis. We will release them near the beginning of June. We're growing lettuce and mushrooms and sprouting several kinds of seeds to learn about how plants grow.

We also got some new technology, an Osmo to use with an ipad and we've been busy learning all the things it can do.

June is going to be a busy month as well with both our life cycle projects and all of plants growing. We are going to be doing an art and science project by representing a life cycle out of clay using techniques from the artist Barbara Reid. We are planning a field trip to Bird's Hill Park to play some outdoor games. The Coach awards this year will be on June 15 and we will get to celebrate everyone's accomplishments this year. We are also planning to attend Aboriginal Family Day events at the Forks on June 21st.  

It's hard to believe another school year is almost over. The last day is June 30th and it will be a half day. We hope everyone has an awesome summer!

Well we hope everyone had a great Spring Break! Thank you to all the parents that came out for student-led conferences. The students were very proud to show off their portfolios.

 
March was a busy month and we got to enjoy some beautiful spring weather. We had a great day out at Bird’s Hill Park enjoying a sleigh ride and hot dog roast on the March 4th.

 
Baby Aria visited us on the 7th and she weighs 14.5 lbs now. She can sit up with help and she likes to be on her tummy more often.

 
We had lots of fun building traps to see if we could catch a Leprechaun. Nobody was able to get one but they left us notes saying to try again next year and little gold treats to eat! We celebrated St.Patrick’s Day by wearing green, eating Lucky Charms for breakfast and having lime jello and 
pistachio pudding for morning snack.

 
Easter was early this year so we celebrated it in March as well. The Easter bunny was nice enough to drop off some treats for us to enjoy.
