Here are some fun activities we've done this week while learning about contractions. We performed "Word Surgery" complete with rubber gloves, scissors and band aids. We took two words and made them into the shorter word by replacing a letter/letters with "band aid" apostrophes! We also made candy corn contractions!
Laurissa received an award today from St. Mary's Health Center for showing enthusiasm and interest during our brushing program at CHSMES! Way to go!
We had a great day for our Terry Fox walk. We've been donating our toonies for cancer research in Terry's name and celebrating his legacy and dream for a cure.
We've been working hard at mastering our doubles facts to 20. Today we did a fun Math craftivity using our knowledge of the facts. Check out our "Double Mints!"
We had an amazing field trip at Riverview Orchard in Keswick today. We got to pick and sample apples, see farm animals, play in the bouncy castle, sandbox, playground and get lost in a corn maze! We got busy writing recounts of our adventure this afternoon. Stay tuned to the bulletin boards at school to see our polished stories detailing the day.
We had an exciting day today! It is Quinton's birthday AND we had a Nifty Fifty party at Mr. Brook's pool!
Thank you to St. Mary's Health Center for the teeth brushing demonstration/talk today. Soon we will be brushing our teeth at school and keeping a brushing log to track our progress! We want to keep our smiles white and sparkly!
