Wet and rainy Wednesday!
The students spent their recesses indoors today, due to the wet weather outside. I hope that everyone had a safe drive.

The SK's continued our Winter unit that correlates with the Seasons unit. We continued working on our winter senses booklet. Today the students focused on the their sense of taste with a hot chocolate activity. The students made their own hot chocolates and tasted them, we shared with each other how it tasted and recorded our observations in our winter senses booklet.
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers and enjoyed reading with our grade 4 reading buddies!
We had library time with Mrs. Hayward today.
The SK's practiced their subtraction skills with a dice game, the students worked with a partner and had to roll the dice and subtract 1 from that number.
