Thursday September 20 2018

Good afternoon!

Grade one is a very busy class. We tackle the calendar wall every morning and the students are getting much more efficient with the words, numbers, and tallies. 

In our unit, we are reading about community helpers and answering questions regarding their responsibilities and how we can make their jobs easier. Ask your child about fire fighters and escape plans. 

In Math, we used the 100's chart to count even and odd using three colours. 

After Agendas, the students worked on their colouring by word packages. 

Today's photos show the students enjoying recess and each other's company. 

Have a lovely evening. Enjoy listening and reading with your child the books they are choosing to bring home.

What a full day!

We worked on our Calendar page as per the usual. The students are learning the days of the week, using tallies for the number of the day, and having to state greater than/less than every day as well as a number sentence. 

In our Unit of Inquiry, we played Memory with community helpers and their vehicles. Then we drew pictures of three of them. 

Today for homework, the students are to fill in the blanks on a Hundreds Chart. they also need to read a book and record the title in their log. They also can read books from home and the public library where 35 books can be borrowed per visit. 

Have a lovely evening.

Good afternoon!

Today, the students coloured community helpers and sorted the pages to make a book. Some took the book home to read.


In French, they are learning nouns of objects in the class. 

Also, we sorted various objects according to shape, size, and colour.

Later, we worked with nouns and their pictures. 

Fun at recess.

Lastly, we started a home-reading log. Some books can be read alone, others can be enjoyed with a parent, sibling, or guardian. Use the chart to name the book and who did the reading. 

Don't forget The Terry Fox Walk coming September 27th.

Good evening!

Today, we started Journal Writing. It is quite the process, answering the 5 W's in sentence form and with a picture. But the students stayed focused. 

Later, we did some review of skip counting by 10's and 5's. We will move on to 2's even and odd.

Please fill out and return the lunch menu forms. Also, we are looking forward to The Terry Fox Run September 27.

It's Friday!

Every day after assembly we work with the calendar. It is a given. We are getting smarter and faster, and some of the students help the others, which makes for a positive community. 

In Gym, the students had to work as a team to do some construction.

Later, we worked on our spelling words. This is sometimes challenging but worth the effort and time. 

Finally, in Math, the students worked in groups to sort objects. They had to decide to sort according to size, shape, or colour. then they had to draw their sorting onto a chart. 

We have been a community for 9 days now. Have a wonderful weekend. Please, if your child orders food, send in the forms Monday. Also, ask them for the Terry Fox envelope and letter.
