Happy Wednesday!

Letters of the Week: Mm & Dd

Show & Share for tomorrow:

International Day
is tomorrow from 2:30 to 3:15 pm, parents are welcome to come visit the classrooms.  Students may also dress in their cultural clothing or in the Jamaican flag colours for tomorrow. Parents who are bringing in food for tomorrow, please make sure that it is already cooked, I do not have access to the school kitchen.  Just to clarify some things about the Summative Assignment (Down on the Farm), the written part will be done in class and the presentations will take place next week October 11th and 12th.  Parents may help students with the presentation part of the assignment.  I will let students and parents know in the agendas and through emails, when each student will be presenting.

Inquiry into Language
The SK's learned the formation, sound and brainstormed words that began with the letter Dd.  The students also worked in their Printing Booklets and on a worksheet.  The students also shared what they were most thankful for, for Thanksgiving in their Journals.
Here is the link to the Jolly Phonics song for the letter Dd: jolly Phonics Song Letter Dd

Ms. Yustin had the students engaged in variety of gross motor games.

Mlle. Hou continued to teach the students about people in their family in French.

Unit of Inquiry
The students continued to work on the written part of their Summative Assignment.  I worked one on one with each of them to make any corrections if needed.

Daily 5
The students read books with a partner or individually.

The SK were busy with a patterns and Thanksgiving theme activity sheet.
