Wow what a busy day! We had our science quiz this morning to finish off our unit on renewable and non-renewable resources. We then read the story Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi to talk about how tomorrow is Pi Day (3.14). Then we made some butter tarts, the children really seemed to enjoy them (as did the staff, yummy!). We finished off the day helping our little buddies celebrate 100 days of school. I hope that everyone has a wonderful break. See you all on March 30th!!

Butter Tart Recipe

1/2 butter 2 eggs 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 coconut 1 cup raisins (I usually soak them first to plump them up, pour boiling water over and let sit) 1 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla Mix together and fill tart shells 2/3 full. Bake in oven for 450 for 10 minutes then drop the temperature to 425 for 10 minutes.

Tuesday March 3

Sorry for no post last night. Over the last couple of days I have had a chance to meet with the children regarding their Heritage Fair projects. If you have not yet signed your child's form could you please do so now. Many of the topics are very exciting and it is wonderful to see the children so excited about them. We will be having time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in class to work on these projects so please make sure that your child has what they need to work at school on these days. Many of the children brought in flash drives today which was wonderful. Please make sure that you have shown your child how to use and safely remove these so that they know what to do. It is hard for me to teach them when I am trying to help others gather research. Also, we will have no spelling over the next couple of weeks so that we can devote more class time to our projects. Homework tonight: - home reading - math 4p. 154 #1-7, 5p. 143 #1-8 - 5/6 french if not complete - WITW and Canadian Reader due tomorrow Have a good night!
