We started a new class read aloud. A novel by Beverly Cleary--The Mouse and the Motorcycle. We are encouraging most of the students to begin choosing short novels to read at school and at home.
In math, we worked on writing equations with an unknown addend. This was challenging when students had to do it independently so we will continue this work tomorrow. For example there are 23 students in the room and 12 are girls. How many are boys? There are two possibilities for equations: 23-12=_______ or 12+_____=23.
Since we missed Art on Friday, we started our afternoon with a drawing activity. Ask your child what they sketched and what media they used to color with.
We have now finished our Science unit on Hearing and Sound and we are doing some prep to get the class ready for the test on Wednesday. Today they drew and labelled the ear from memory. Then they compared their drawing to the one they did in their visual journal to see how they did. Ask your child how they did. What did they remember and what did they forget?
School Council is holding a cookie dough fundraiser to raise money for school field trips, field trip bussing and in school residencies. The fundraiser will be hosted through Healthy Hunger, the site we use for our Fun Lunches.
The cookie dough comes in 6 flavours:

Tubs are $11.99 each.
Invite Family and Friends to order and support this fundraising initiative and keep track of orders at home. Final orders are submitted to Healthy Hunger as one order and then payment is made for all tubs using the methods above.
Orders must be placed by November 16, 2017 at midnight. Pick up will be at the school on November 30, 2017 between 3PM and 6PM. Please ensure you or someone can pick up the cookie dough that day as we will not have the capacity to store the frozen cookie dough.
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school and you are invited to come and share in this celebration of literacy with us!
Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.
Scholastic Book Fairs has the books to motivate more reading. With your involvement, we can inspire children to practice reading and read more often. Together, we can make a difference in their lives that will last a lifetime.
Your support can help our learning commons blossom with new and exciting adventures in reading, stimulating young minds for years to come.
