What a wonderful performance!

Way to sing and dance Grade One's!  It looked like the class was having a fun time "Decking the Halls" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" last night! Wonderful job everyone!

Today, kids are invited to wear their pyjamas to school (it will just be our class, not the entire school).  Also, there is a cookie sale today at recess sponsored by Madame Gabrielle's Kindergarten class.

Tomorrow, the students are invited to dress-up in their Christmas colours as part of a school-wide Spirit Day, organized by the student council.

Tomorrow's events are as:
10:00-10:40 - La Chaine de la Solidarité (passing food band items from the school to the Anglican church)
11-12 - Sing-a-Long with Val and Morley
1:00-2:00 - Winter Walk around the block (our Grade One class).  Please join us if you are available!
3:15...head home for a wonderful winter holiday!

Tomorrow we will be swimming at 10:30.  Once we have finished swimming lessons, we will walk directly over to the Activity Centre to join the other classes for the Réveillon feast.  If you are planning on sending in a food item and are able to drop it off at the Activity Centre (if you are joining us there), that would be great!  If you are planning to send your food item in with your child in the morning, I will transport it to the pool with us (please make it as “transportable” as possible, ie. plastic containers).

Thanks!

Bonne fète à Isobel!  Happy 6th birthday, Isobel!

Yesterday, we had a fun and informational 3V session with a teacher from Montana who told stories and showed video clips of bears.  We got to see Bruno the Bear during his "winter lethargy" and learned that bears don't hibernate, rather they "den" for the winter.

Our visit to the Museum today was fun and the kids each found a favorite tree.  Some of "favorites" included the "money" tree, the pink tree, the purse tree, the hockey tree, the strawberry jam tree the chocolate tree.  There is an event at the Museum this Saturday, where the kids can decorate a tree with Santa!  Thanks to Bella's mom and Jillian's mom for accompanying the class to and from the Musuem!

Tomorrow is our "on" spelling quiz as well as out bear baking morning.  Don't forget that it is also a noon dismissal day.

As requested in the newsletter, if you are able to send in a washed 4L  milk jug, we will be doing a christmas craft with them by next week, thanks.

Several newsletters went home today - looks like a busy few weeks ahead!

The spelling words this week that focus on the "on" sound are:

pont - bridge
bonbon - candy
savon - soap
cochon - pig
dindon - turkey

For pronunciation of these (and other) French words, try the following website:

Ask your child to tell you what these images are:



 
 
 
 
Good luck!

Updates for the week ahead are:

Our class is in charge of the cookie sale during the recess time on Thursday, Dec. 6.  Please send in two dozens treats that adhere to the school's "nut-free" policy.  Thanks!  The money raised during the sale will go towards to the school foster child.  Happy baking!

On Thursday afternoon, from 1:20- 2:00pm, our class will be walking to the Museum to admire the myriad of festive Christmas trees.  All parents and siblings are welcome to attend!

On Friday morning, we will be having the last spelling quiz before the holiday break.  The sound of the week is "on" (like in the word, "mon").  I will post the words tomorrow on the blog and send the students home with them tomorrow.

Also on Friday morning at around 10:00am, we will be preparing the cheddar cheese bear buns.  I will provide all of the ingredients.  If any parents are available to come in and help, that would be super!
