Day 88

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.

Agenda Re-registration package, memorize oral presentation, spelling sentences due Friday, spelling test Friday, trip form
UOI with language focus- Today students received their weekly spelling words and completed activities from their spelling workout booklets.

Math- Students create a question where the people who were asked to answer the question had to choose between 4 answers. They had to ask 10 different people to complete their survey. Students tallied the results and shared them with the class.

Unit of Inquiry- Today we looked at an inventor named Thomas Edison who invented the lightbulb. Some students had to walk across the classroom normally and then were blindfolded to walk back. We kept an eye out if they were going to bump into anything but they found it hard. Students then wrote about what it would be like if the lightbulb was not invented.

Daily 5- Students practiced their story retell in front of the class. Students were given suggestions on how they can improve their presentations. Reading homework this week will be for them to memorize their retell, add some actions, practice projecting their voices and adding a sentence or 2 to get the audiences attention.
