Who can believe we are already in the middle of February?
I would like to catch up on a few classroom events and give a refreshed update to our homework in Grade 5/6.
First, I would like to apologize for the delay in getting the photo up of our amazing terrific kids, Ben and Katelyn who received the award for responsibility in January. Great work you two!
The weekly wonder continues to be homework for term two, with 1 to be completed each week. A reminder that they need to be put in your own words, include visual interest by using coloured text and pictures/videos. It is essential that you use creative commons when including pictures to ensure that you are not breaking copyright laws with your post. Remember that you need to save the image and then upload it, rather than just copy and paste so that the picture will stay with your blog long after the website that it came from has been deleted. As well, nightly reading is always encouraged.
Things we are working on:
The students have each been reading a biography from the ‘Who Was’ series, working towards completing a project in class. These are great books and easy reads that the students have really enjoyed. I recommend them if you are looking to purchase books to read at home.
Classroom Events and notes:
Thursday Feb 23 we will be having our pizza party that we won through the Community Living contest as well as a visit from the project coordinator.
If you have any newspapers, magazines, clothing tags or junk mail that you would like to get rid of we would be happy to take them off your hands. We are working on a variety of mixed media projects in art and would love to have multiple options to choose from.
I look forward to posting the end result of our first mixed media project. Here is my quick exemplar, using a picture of someone very special to me.
Enjoy your family day weekend and spend some quality time with the ones you love most!
