As well, Number talks continues to be very important and extended part of our math lessons. Ask your child about them........especially about rekenreks which a very cool math tool we have been exploring during the past month.
Please continue to practice addition and subtraction facts your child at home. each week we continue work on a number of strategies to improve the boys and girls computation skills. Your help at home contributes greatly to your child's skill development. Thank you!
e,g. First I went skating on the canal with my family. (tell) I skated with my two cousins. We went so fast! (describe)
during shared reading activities the students are learning to make text to self and text to world connections, This week we will read and complete a variety of comprehension activities related to a story titled "Tina and the Penguin". We have also been learning a great deal of interesting facts about penguins during our read aloud time. The children are fascinated by these interesting little birds!!
When your child is reading at home encourage him/her to track with a finger and to read out loud. Be sure to check your child's comprehension at the end of each book to ensure a "just right" reading level.
Please return your child's report card envelope to school....thank you!
Next week your child will be bringing home a variety of learning activities for you to see. Please have your child explain them. Sign and return the activities in the bag provided.
An Ash Wednesday liturgy will be held on Wednesday March 1st @ 11:00AM. Parents are welcome to attend.
Pizza, pasta, and Popcorn days are run by our school parent council. Any questions you may have must be directed to the parents in charge.
The parent council will be providing pancakes to mark Shrove Tuesday. If your child requires gluten free pancakes please let us know by Monday the 27th at the very latest.
Please tuck an extra pair of socks and mitts in your child's backpack as this wet weather makes for very soggy hands and feet.
Thank you for your continued support.
