We have survived 10 straight days of inside recess! I have my fingers crossed that this cold snap is almost done. The children have done a good job of keeping themselves busy and somewhat quiet during all our inside time but they are ready to get outside!
Ask your child about the surprise visitor we had in 2T today. 🙂
Here are our smiles:
Mon. Feb. 5– going to Maker Space (Lachlan)
Tues. Feb. 6– making a bookmark and necklace at Maker Space (Hennessey)
Wed. Feb. 7– reading the Canadian Monster book (Avery M.)
Thurs. Feb. 8– making a lot of puppets (Claire M.)
Fri. Feb. 9– playing dr. dodgeball in gym (Avery B.)
Have a great weekend!
On Tuesday morning I was out of the classroom. Mrs. Wolfe wanted to set up her own blog for Arts Ed. Her and I worked together and now Music Matters is up and running. It is another great way to be informed and involved in what your child is learning at school.
Check it out and see what your child is doing in Arts Ed.!
PINK SHIRT DAY – February 28/18
Why do we wear pink shirts?
In 2007 two boys, David and Travis, noticed another boy being bullied at
school for wearing a pink shirt.
That night they went out and bought 50 tank tops
and sent out a message to their classmates asking
them to wear pink to show support for the boy who
was being bullied. The next day David and Travis
handed out the tank tops in the schools’ foyer to
anyone who wanted to stand up to the bully too!
The kindness of the two boys helped stop the bullying! What kind things
can you do to make the world a better place?
We at T.E.S. will be wearing pink shirts on February 28. The SLC will also be planning activities for that week to coordinate with this theme.

Have a wonderful weekend, I am hoping that the weather warms up so that we will be able to head outside next week. This teacher is tired of having inside recess! 🙂

Just a reminder that there is no school on Wednesday, Jan 31st– this is the half way point in the school year. 🙂
This has been a beautiful week in 2T. It is funny how much the weather can change in a day. We went from inside recesses to lovely sunny weather in 24 hours!
We have been learning about so many fun things in our classroom.
In Science we are busy learning about Motion. We did a “Motion Hunt” in our classroom and then we experimented with play-doh in a Motion Factory.
In Social Studies we are learning about leaders and came up with examples of leaders in both our school community as well as a different community.
This week we focused on Fact Families in Math. Look for an exit card coming home in the Learning Journey duo-tang to show understanding next week.
In Reading Workshop this week we practiced the strategy of Inferring. We made some inferences when watching a video about a pig. Some of the kids said that the link from a previous post didn’t work, so just search for “Ormie the pig“. We also made some inferences about the things in my school bag. Next week we will begin to infer using books.
We also learned about bacteria and white blood cells in Health. Ask your child if they remember what the white blood cells do to the bacteria when we are sick.
We loved trying out the ringette sticks in Gym this week!
Here is what made us smile: 🙂
Mon. Jan. 15– having free time (Lachlan)
Tues. Jan 16– doing a motion hunt in science (Avery B.)
Wed. Jan. 17– staying in at lunch for writing club (Hennessey)
Thurs. Jan. 18– playing with the parachute in gym (Ellie)
Fri. Jan. 19– watching Auto B Good at the assembly (Grady)
** FYI- we now have a student in our classroom with a nut allergy. Please be extra careful when packing snacks and lunches to make sure that there is nothing that contains nuts!**
