This week, we continued working on our "dream homes".  Most groups are done their draft copy and have begun the good copy on large chart paper. We have chosen "Vive le vent" for the Christmas concert.  It is to the tune of "Jingle Bells".  We will start practicing this song next week. On Friday afternoon, we made a garland of gingerbread men/ladies.  We were asked to do so by our M.P. Jake Stewart for the Provincial Christmas tree in the Legislature. Have a great weekend!!

Last week we had a wonderful presentation by a very educated guest.  Jules Keenan of Grade 5 TH did a presentation for our class complete with posters and visual aids on diabetes.  We all learned a lot about Jules' life and what it is like to deal with diabetes every day.  This week we celebrated 2 birthdays in our class.  Happy Birthday goes out to Chad and Andrew.  We hope you had a wonderful day!  On Wednesday of this week we were wowed by the "Ocean's Wild" presentation in the gym.  Please check out our gallery to see some pictures of the presentation, and of us inside a WHALE!!  On Thursday of this week, he held our bake sale.  I was so proud of all the students.  They worked so hard to get ready for it, and were very selfless.  We raised an amazing $300 for David Wilson and his family.  It will be a great help to them as they travel back and forth to the hospital in December.  Good luck David and God bless.

We have had a few very busy weeks!  Two weeks ago students received their report cards, and we held parent-teacher meetings.  I was glad to meet with 17 of my 27 parents.  Thank you for coming.  Those of you that could not attend, please feel free to call the school or send a note if there is anything you would like to know. Last week, we were busy preparing for the Remembrance Day Ceremony.  Students from our class contributed by singing in the choir, and 3 of our classmates read the poem "Au champ d'honneur" (In Flanders Fields in French. ) Great job Janet, Kassidy and Jaime! This week we are beginning to work on our "dream homes".  In groups of 3, students are designing their dream home using their imagination.  We are getting some great ideas!  Rooms for pet giraffes, and slides rather than stairs! Also this Thursday, we will be having our bake sale for David Wilson.  Please send treats that are easy to hand out individually. (cookies, squares, muffins, or individually wrapped pieces of cake, etc.)  I will let you know on my blog how much we raise for David! Thanks! Mme Jen.

What a week!!!  We had a lot to do this week, including decorating our pumpkins and making witches out of construction paper.  On top of that we even had a day of to relax during the week.  If only all weeks were like that!!  After school today, there will be a halloween party in the cafeteria for students.  Preschool-Grade 2 is from 5pm-6pm.  Grades 3-5 will be from 6:30pm - 7:30pm. Tomorrow, Friday, students will be dressing up.  My students have Math, Phys. Ed., and will be playing outside at dinner time.  Because of this, they won't be putting on their costumes until after lunch.  If you are sending a treat for the students, please send at least 27 items.  Have a safe, happy halloween!

I hope that everyone had a restful, happy Thanksgiving weekend.  I know that I did!  This past week we continued working on extended families, and read a book about Thanksgiving.  We also learned a new song about a poor man that is in very bad shape!  We sang this song for Mrs. Hambrook's Grade 2 class and Mrs. Sturgeon's Grade 1 class.  The students did a fantastic job!

It is hard to believe that it is only Wednesday afternoon and the students are at the end of another week! Teachers will be in meeting Thurdsday and Friday for Curriculum Implementation days.  Then we all have a long weekend for Thanksgiving.  This week in class students have been learning about their extended families, and how to present these to others.  Rather than draw a family tree, which can get complicated and take up too much space, we have drawn our extended families as constellations.  We will be presenting these next week.  We are also beginning to learn about body parts, and drew a very interesting character together in class! Have a happy, safe Thanksgiving!
