100 day posters

Today I am sending home the posters to complete the 100 day poster assignment. I sent home the pink paper explaining the assignment yesterday.

Please make sure you check your child`s folder daily as there is important information in there.

Healthy Foods!

As we have begun our Healthy Foods Unit this week we completed our first week by making a healthy breakfast! This afternoon we made yogurt parfaits with vanilla yogurt, mixed berries and Mrs Lemire and Miss Simone`s homemade granola! Yummy!

We all learnt how to make it and promised to try and make it at home with mommy`s and daddy`s :)

This week we learnt about Healthy and Sometimes foods and are continuing to work on the 4 food groups! Practice at home by asking your child to help you sort foods into the 4 food groups: Fruits and Veggies, Dairy, Grains and Meats and Alternatives.

Next week we will be having an Alleluia Assembly on Tuesday and then Ash Wednesday Mass the following day.

Our letter of the week next week is: V

Hope to see you all at the Carnaval tonight!

 

Gift From God

Today we covered the next lesson in the Gift from God program.

Your child has completed page 7 and 8. You are to review these pages at home with the family lesson tonight. Please make sure that the books are returned tomorrow.

If there are pages from previous lessons that have not been completed please do so as well.

 

stuffed animals

We are setting up a new dramatic play area in our classroom…a veterinary clinic!

In order to have ‘patients’ at our clinic I am asking for students to bring in any stuffed animals that they may have at home that are no longer used/wanted. Please do not let your child bring in any special stuffed animals as all the children will be playing with them. I am only asking for stuffed animals that are needing a new home :)

At the end of the year I will be cleaning them all and donating them to a local charity.

Thanks!

Reminders

This week:

Composting: We have started a school wide composting initiative so if you have extra flyers / news papers please send them in so we can line our classroom bin

Sweaters: I have a few sweaters here in the classroom that do not have names on them. Please make sure you label your child’s clothing. Also please check your child’s sweater and make sure it is theirs as I have a few students missing their sweaters.

Wed Feb 22nd: Hot Lunch / Pink Shirt Day / Do Bugs need Drugs Presentation

Gift from God: Today I have sent home the Gift From God books please complete the next lesson and page 6 in the workbooks

Have a great week!
