We had our Penguin Unit final party on Friday.  We watched "Mr. Popper's Penguin's" and ate a Penguin Parfait snack (Blue jello - water, whipped cream - snow, candy fish, crushed Oreos for rocks and stones).  We will be comparing the movie version to the book version this week.

We were so sad to say good-bye to two of our friends at Spring Break - Lachlan and Desayo.  We hope that they will come back and visit us.  We will miss them.

Don't forget to send in the reading sheet for Spring Break - Easter Eggs to colour.  There will be prizes for reading for 10 days.

Our next Social Studies unit will be on mapping.

Learning's Fun ~ In Grade One! March 15,2019

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!        Daniella                     March 31

Thank you all for coming out to our student-led conferences last week.  The children were very proud and excited to show their portfolios to you and share what they have learned this term.

The whole class was buzzing with creative excitement on Friday afternoon as the children built their leprechaun traps.  We used gold coins to (hopefully) entice those sneaky leprechauns into visiting our classroom and everyone shared how their traps would work.  We'll check our traps on Monday to see if we actually caught some. 
They can wear something green on Monday for a belated St. Patrick's Day (if they wish).

This week we are "travelling" to China for country week.  Every afternoon, the children will be travelling to another classroom to experience different activities with different teachers, such as -
Animals, Math, Culture, Art, Sports, Food and Folktales.  We are also having some Chinese dancers visiting the school on Wednesday morning where they will perform and teach us some dances.
