Daily 5- Work on Writing- Today the students worked on writing a letter to themselves. When I was in grade 2/3, I wrote a letter to myself to be opened when I was in grade 12. I kept it in my baby book that whole time, and on my graduation day, I read it. It was such a great experience that I wanted to do the same thing with my class. So today they started writing it. Please be thinking of a safe place your child could put the letter so they don’t lose it in the next ten years!

Quiet Time/Twitter- Starting tomorrow and into May/June the helper of the day will be running our Quiet Time. They will be sitting on the teacher chair and reading a story out loud to the class. The students should all have a book prepared to read. It shouldn’t be too long, and it needs to be a picture book.

Social- We read the children’s book, Stolen Words by Melanie Florence today. It talked about how the grandpa in the story lost his words when they were stolen at residential schools. We decided to reclaim some of those words by learning some Cree today through a neat Cree app. The kids loved it.

Home Time

*Next week we are going to start Show and Tell. I will let the kids know when they are allowed to bring a toy, or something special to them. We will be doing one row at a time.
