Field Trip Cancellation: Our last field trip to the Helmcken House was cancelled due to the snow. Instead of refunding everyone the $3 for the trip, I suggest we use that money towards our end of the year field trip (TBA) to offset the cost. If you have concerns about this please let us know. Also, if any additional field trips are cancelled we use the money from it towards our final field trip. If there is still extra money at the end of the year you will get a refund.
Sharing: Our class will have sharing times where they can bring something special from home to show the class. Sharing time will take place only on the first Friday of each month. Friday, January 6th is our next sharing day.
What We are Learning this Term:
Language Arts- Parts of speech, paragraph writing, and poetry.
Math -We will be working on our subtraction and fraction skills. The class will also be introduced to multiplication and division concepts this term.
Science- We are diving into a big unit on weather! Should be a really fun!
Social Studies - We will be exploring First Nation artifacts (weapons, petroglyphs, and tools). In addition we are going to look more closely at their way of life by examining clothing, food preparation, hunting, fishing, and basket weaving.
Here is to a wonderful term in 2017! Thank you so much,
Mrs. Christoff and Mrs. Stratford
