Hello Kindergarten/Grade 1 families,
That week was a little more disrupted with the snow days than we had thought, but we had a great time on the days we were here. On Monday we caught the Canada Games spirit in a pep rally assembly. Students were pretty excited to meet Wowkwis the mascot and learn about the Games.
We came back from the Snow Storm and were treated to the Gr. 5 and 6 Holiday Concert. Everyone in class was a fantastic audience and really enjoyed the music from the older students. Ask your child about the special surprise guests who performed at the end the 5/6 concert! Speaking of concerts, I was so proud of the KA/1A, KB and KC concerts on Friday. It was a fantastic performance that I very much enjoyed and I hope you did as well.
After the concert excitement, we met our Book Buddies in the Maker Space and made snowmen traps based on the book How to Catch a Snowman. It was a fun STEAM and literacy based activity to do with our buddies.
We learned two new Fundations letters V and W this week. Only four more letters and then we’ve learned the entire alphabet. After that, we will start to learn how to blend those sounds together to decode simple words that follow the constant-vowel-constant (CVC) structure such as ‘cat’.
In Math students are becoming much indpendent and confident when representing and decomposing numbers on their individual white boards. Our next step is do work independently, but we need more practice at this stage first.
Because of the rescheduling of the concerts due to the weather, the Reindeer Games have been rescheduled to Monday afternoon, so we are looking forward to that!
