HAPPY BIRTHDAY! MAFALDA MAY 15
We have a very long weekend coming up. This week’s homework is due on Thursday and the spelling tests will be on Thursday as well. Have a wonderful, restful weekend.
FLAT STANLEY PROJECT
Our Flat Stanley people have been sent off in the mail. Hopefully we will start to receive our letters and postcards back in a week or two. We will be posting our flat people and where they visited on a large map of Canada (and the world) along with the postcards that we received.
This week will be going on a short walk around our neighbourhood, looking for common birds. We will be keeping a list and tallying the number of and types of birds that we see. Sometime over this weekend, the children are asked to go on another bird walk around their own neighbourhoods (or cottages) and add on to their bird tallies. We will be sending in our recorded numbers to be compiled with bird counts across the country. I will send more information home with your child on Thursday.
Our school is having a Read-a-Thon during the month of May. We are having our “kick-off” on Wednesday after chapel and an envelope with the directions will be coming home with your child then. Thank you.
