Windy Wednesday!

We are continuing to finish up our Candy Corn science experiment for the Science Fair on Friday, November 16th.  I have also placed Scholastic book orders in the agenda bags and they are due this Friday, November 16th as well.

Inquiry into Language
The SK's practiced the sound and formation of the ff. The students brainstormed words that end with the ff sound and practiced printing in their printing booklets.  The students worked on an activity sheet with partners and had to fill in sentences that had missing ff words.  Here is the link to the Jolly Phonics Letter Ff song:Jolly Phonics letter Ff song:

Ms. Yustin had the students engaged in a variety of gross motor and team building activities.

Mlle. Hou taught the students the five senses vocabulary in French.  Her is the link to her website:

We continued our Space unit and the four phases of the moon.  Today the students listened to a read a loud story titled The Moon, which taught the students more facts about the moon and the phases.  The SK's also worked on an activity sheet that had the students connect the dots to create each phase of the moon

The students were busy practicing their song for the Christmas Concert.

The students continued our new Math unit with Data Management.  The students were engaged with a sorting and graphing activity.  We had to sort leaves in a bag by colour and had to graph our answers on a bar graph in our Math books.
