Please remember to wear your uniform on that day (Navy blue bottoms, white or navy top, or navy blue skirt/dress).

Last week our class was brainstorming some things they were thankful for, sharing their thinking with peers then collaborating to create a shared reading chart together.
Some books we read include: The Thankful Book by Todd Parr, Thanks For Thanksgiving by Heather Patterson and Giving Thanks by Jonathan London. Later students added their personal thoughts to turkey feathers which we started displaying in our classroom. They even created some wonderfully wacky turkey pictures after looking at real life images on-line and pictures taken on our class trip.
Here are some of their works of art.
We had our own small celebration together in class on Thursday, making our own treats together. As part of our math learning we surveyed our class and asked them what kinds of treats they wanted to make. Then we tallied the results and found that pumpkin cake was the most popular choice.
Cooking is a great way to incorporate language, mathematics, science and discovery into learning. We looked at the various cooking ingredients and tools, needed for the recipe, comparing their smells, looks and scientific properties. Then students who wished to help, worked to measure, mix and create our pumpkin cake, making observations and personal connections during the process. Here are some of our cooking moments:
For the recipe, go to our recipe page and look up Chocolate Chip Pumpkin cake.
We have a number of lost items in our classroom. If your child has lost a water bottle or some clothing it might be here. Some pictures of the missing items are listed below:
