Pizza Party and Thursday smiles

We had such a wonderful day today! We had our special pizza lunch that we won for raising the most money in the whole school for the See a Need, Fill a Need campaign that the school did in December. We were stuffed! Thanks to Mrs. Jamieson who brought us a cookie treat for dessert. Today was her last day working in our classroom. Mrs. Klassen will be back on Monday- we missed her a lot!

Learning how to Infer

This week in Reading Workshop we started to talk about the Comprehension Strategy of Making Inferences.ย 

When you infer you are like a Reading Detective….you use the clues in the text along with your schema (what you already know) to make a “smart guess” about what is happening or what is going to happen.

Yesterday we looked at some pictures and then had to infer what was happening. I wanted the students to tell me what they inferred, but they also had to tell me why (what were the clues).

Today we watched a cute video about Ormie the pig and had to infer what it was going to be about, and then we also stopped it half-way through to make another inference about what would happen. It is a cute video and I told the kids I would share it with the families as well….enjoy!

Tomorrow we are going to do some inferring about Mrs. Tebay’s school bag ๐Ÿ™‚

Fresh Grade test

Good Morning! This week I have been doing some experimenting with the Fresh Grade app. I am going to “try” to send some pictures to you of your child that I have taken this week. It will probably take me several days to get all the email addresses entered into the system. To let me know if you were able to see the pictures, can you please send me a quick message once you view them? Then I will know if it worked or not-thanks:)

A New Year!

Welcome back!

We have had a super first day back to school in 2016.

Today we set some goals for us to work towards for the rest of the school year. We set a reading goal, a food that we want to try, something that we want to learn and a personal goal.

Ask your child what their goals are tonight.

The January newsletter was also sent home today- the book-orders will follow tomorrow.

We have other exciting news to share….. ask your child what Mr. Pauls announced this morning during announcements.
