The end is near! Much to the dismay of your children, I have not assigned any homework this week…other than reading their daily minimum of 20 minutes each evening. I know they are dreading summer break! 😉
I am starting to send home the student’s belongings. Today we have sent home their Art portfolios and any supplies they brought in for their Nubia triptychs. Tomorrow, we will be sending home their LA binders. There are some valuable things in both. As you know, their final copies of written text forms are on Google Drive, but they are printed and in your child’s binder as well. There is also a yellow monthly scribbler that has some nice recounts you might like to read sometime. Math and all other materials will go home towards the end of the week. If your child has any text books, classroom library books, school library books or anything else that needs to be returned, please have them do so by Friday.
Just a heads up, our personal health and safety unit starts tomorrow morning. Questions and discussions may arise.
Our field trip is on Monday the 26th. We will leave after the announcements around 8:40am. The movie is slated to start around noon and we will aim to be back at the school for 2:00pm.
We would like to have a class party on Tuesday, the 27th at lunch. Some students have asked if they can bring some treats in if they hadn’t signed up at the beginning of the year. Please feel free if you are able and willing 🙂
Your children are coming home with a number of important items/assignments, today. Please have a look at their agenda and the items in their bags/binders.
The Foundational Math Quiz #3 went home on Friday, to be corrected and signed and returned. The Area & Perimeter quiz went home last week as well. Forget-Me-Not-Friday #6 homework went home today, due Friday, June 2nd.
We have begun Novel Letters today. Your child is to write me a 3 paragraph letter about the book they are reading at home, in the evenings. I have attached the instruction sheet with guided questions (within, beyond and about the text) in their green duotangs. A sample letter based on our read aloud, Wonder is also in their duotang. This week’s novel letter is due Friday.
Home and School has sent two letters home today. The yellow sheet is information regarding concerns surrounding the “Better Learning For All” government platform. If you agree with the concerns outlined, we ask that you sign and return the white sheet by Friday, June 2nd. We really appreciate your support in this matter.
Just a reminder: School supply forms/$ and field trip forms/$ due Friday, June 2nd
You can find the novel letter instructions here: Novel Letter Instructions
Just a reminder, I am collecting the following:
– Blue school supply form (and money if you wish to pay in cash)
– Spring Fling monetary donation ($1 or $2) for Friday, May 26th
– Book Orders, due Friday, May 26th
– End of year school trip money and forms (permission and movie) due Friday, June 2nd
Math homework will be going home today, due Friday, May 26th
The students are coming home with Quiz 2 of the Foundational Learning Outcomes, completed this morning. Please have a look, sign and return. They are also coming home with their corrected Math homework. I will be assigning another homework package on Monday, due Friday. However, these questions have the indicated outcome removed from the question and the questions themselves have been mixed up so the students may find the questions more challenging, without being told specifically what to do.
Below is a snapshot of the results from the two quizzes. I am happy to see an improvement from the first quiz and will give us a sense of what questions are proving to be more difficult than others.
Have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all you fantastic moms out there!

It was an intense afternoon and emotions ran high as 5B tested their insulating devices, today. We had some unique designs (patents pending) which worked well, keeping the contents nice and warm.
At first glance, Group 4 was beginning to celebrate their big win until an observant scientist noted that Group 2 actually ended the day keeping their contents warmer by just 0.3 degrees Celsius. (As you can see, Group 4’s temperature started the day 0.5 degrees hotter than the rest).
Big congratulations to all the teams for working so well, together. You all did a wonderful job.
