Day 84

A note from Ms. Helen, our Admissions Coordinator - As you are aware, the re-registration season is upon us and we have recently sent home packages with your child(ren). We value your loyalty and commitment to our school community and would love to continue our partnership by offering priority enrollment for our current SJA families. We kindly ask that you take a moment to review your financial statement and complete the information in the package and make any necessary changes to your place of residence, employment, email changes or any medical information that the administration should be aware of. Please be aware that in order to secure your child’s enrolment, it is imperative that you submit your re-enrollment package and fees no later than February 12, 2018 at 4:00 PM. After this date, all available grade-level spaces will be open to our families on waitlists who will then have the opportunity to secure any vacant positions.

Calendar- the special helpers put up the date, counts down to 100 days of school, and tells us what the weather is like today.
Agenda Read 15 minutes (students are asked to practice their story retell for their reading homework), complete body of retell sheet, spelling sentences due Friday, spelling test Friday


UOI with language focus- Students wrote a journal about what they would do if they woke up and looked outside noticing water up their knees. 

Math- Today we went over what is needed to make a graph. We had a class survey about what their favourite colour is out of red, yellow and pink. As a class we tallied the votes and created a bar graph. We also placed 100 red squares and 5 blue squares in a bag and each student had a chance to pick a square. Students determined what the results would be and were pretty excited when they found out the results. 

Unit of Inquiry- Today we discussed what an inventor is and what an invention is. Students made a list of things in the classroom that were invented and had to determine whether it was invented a long time ago or recently. 

Daily 5- During this time we will be working on our story retell daily so can you please have your child bring the book and retell page daily.
