Thursday Homework

Not too much homework for the weekend. I would really like them to be working on their Science Fair projects as we only have two class days next week before we go to McQueen Lake. I would like them to check this weekend that they have winter clothes that fit and are comfortable at McQueen Lake. They also need to make sure that they have bedding (foamy, sleeping bag, pillow/pillow substitute) and plastic cup, bowl, plate as well as fork, spoon and knife. I don't want these things left until the last minute. If you do need to borrow anything, please let me know and I will ask the class if anyone has extras. Have a great long weekend!

What an amazing day!!! We had a fantastic time at the Emily Carr and Jack Shadbolt exhibit today. The children did some amazing artwork. It was not all dry by the time we were ready to go, so I will pick it up this weekend, and then display some of it at school before I send it home. No major homework for the weekend, home reading and working on their science fair projects. Have a fantastic weekend!

Wow, the week seemed to fly by!!! We had a lot of fun dancing and playing tag with our kindergarten buddies at the end of the day today. Sorry I have not kept the posts up this week, a lot of after school activities had me on the run straight away. The children should be working on their science fair projects, and should be finishing up their egg drop class experiment. I will give them a bit more time on Monday to finish up making these containers. Homework for the weekend:
- home reading
- some year 5/6 may have some math to finish up
- year 4/5 should be doing some work on their Shakespeare paragraphs that are due on Tuesday
- if they have not returned their art gallery or McQueen Lake field trips they are past due
- the second $50 Eagle Bay payment is due in by the 15th, if you would like to pay for the remainder of the trip it is $150

Have a great weekend!
