Go away rain….and Friday smiles

Today was a very long day. We were at school very early for the pancake breakfast and since it rained all day we did not get to go outside at all. To make matters worse, Friday is not a gym day for us. We were a little tired, a little grumpy and feeling a little cooped up today. I hope that the weather (and our mood) improves for next week.

Fresh Grade is up and running as of today. If you returned your permission form I have sent out both an “announcement” as well as a picture of your child’s spelling test from today. Please accept my invitation and let me know if you want me to add any other email addresses to your account.

Here is what made us smile this week;

Sept. 19– doing bucket fillers for art (Ayla)

Sept. 20-making a birthday card for Mrs. Weatherington (Jacob)

Sept. 21-going on the Terry Fox walk (Phoenix) * our class raised $73.00

Sept. 22– playing outside (Jaida H.)

Sept. 23– watching the Pigeon movie (Carlee)

It was nice to connect with so many of you this morning at the breakfast.

I have finished testing the children on their Dolch sight words and will send home lists for them to practice starting next week.

Today I have begun listening to the students read and will adjust their levels for reading accordingly. Please note that it takes a long time to listen to 24 children read. My goal is to listen to them once a month each. If your child is in reading club with Mrs. S. she will be listening to them read and corresponding with you about their reading.

If the blue “Learning Journey” duotang comes home with your child please sign and return it to school.

I am going to cross my fingers that the rain does not last- stay dry this weekend!
