Items for next year

I just thought that I would post this while I am thinking of things now. Throughout the summer if you see any of these things during your travels (garage sales or have them at home and are looking to get rid of them) our class would greatly appreciate them. If you can donate them could you please post a response on here so that others know as well, or let me know and I can update the list.

- boggle game
- scrabble game
- old blender or food processor (I want to do some paper making next year. The blades don't need to be sharp, it just has to blend wet paper)
- set of mixing bowls
- cookie sheets
- mixing spoons, spatulas, etc.
- hand blender

I figured many sets of eyes on the lookout are better than just mine!

Not much homework tonight as we are winding down.

- home reading
- bake sale tomorrow
- Mathletics (if you are interested in signing your child up for the summer for $5 please send the money to school and I will arrange it)

Have a great night.

Back to work!

We are back to work today. What a wonderful past three days we have had at Eagle Bay. I think that everyone made some memories that will last them a lifetime! It was so much fun we were all sad to go. Everyone seemed a little tired today (myself included)! We had a good day in the classroom today. The highlight - we got to see a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Homework tonight:

- home reading
- novel study (these should be complete, we will finish marking tomorrow)
- some still have to hand in their good copy (typed) spinner paragraph
- W.I.T.W. (due tomorrow)
- Eagle Bay/Painted Lady Butterfly journals
- year 4 cursive book (have had over a month to complete this, it is past due)
- climate change papers - all need to be brought back signed

Have a great night and get lots of sleep!
