There is so much going on this week, we thought we better tell you one more time.  


    This week:

     Monday:

   There is a sock hop on Monday, June 19th. The cost will be a non-perishable food item for the food bank.

 

·       Also Monday, June 19th, our walk to Hyla Park is cancelled due to high water levels but we will be having a picnic outside at 10:15 with our snacks and a stuffy if your child would like to bring one.  I will have a couple of big blankets but your child is welcome to bring one if they would rather.  We will then have some free outside time.  Volunteers are not needed but are certainly welcome if you want to join us.  If it rains, we will do the picnic inside our classrooms and some free activity time.  


Tuesday 

·       BPS Family Picnic will be on Tuesday, June 20th.  This starts at 11:45.  Please come get your child from their classroom.  In the case of rain, we will still have the picnic.  We will just spread out inside the school.  

 

    Wednesday·       

     The K-2 students will participate in an outdoor fun day on Wednesday, June 21st.  You may want to send a spare pair of clothing, their are a few water activities in there as well.  Students will be groups in their team colours.    

 

·     T  

    Friday, June 23rd is the last day of school for students! This will be a half day and students will be dismissed like a Wednesday Dismissal but at 11:30. We will have one last colour team meeting and go over some of the lessons we learned this year with fun activities outside.  We will be outside until 11:00. Wear your team colour shirt or colour if you can.   


    Have a wonderful and safe summer.  See you all in the fall.  :)​

Last Week Reminders

Can you believe that next week is the last week of this school year!  How time flies!


Here are a couple of reminders:

Monday - pizza lunch for all grade 2 students.  We are ordering a cheese pizza and pepperoni pizza for each class from Greco.  If your child does not like pizza please send them a lunch.  We will not be providing drinks. They will also still need their morning snack and drinks.  

Tuesday - Family Picnic starting at 11:45.  Please come to the classroom to get your child to join you for the picnic.  If you are taking your child after please sign them out on the sign out sheet on the classroom door.  

Wednesday - K-2 fun day - students will be outside for much of the morning participating in physical activity centers.  Some may involve water so please send in an extra set of clothes, sunscreen (or put on at home) and hat.  

Thursday - talent show and ice cream treat in the afternoon

Friday - LAST DAY - we will be outside again for most of the morning.  Please have sunscreen on your child and dress them appropriately.  There should be no water involved in these activities.  It's also a 1/2 day and as soon as we know the dismissal time we will let you know.  

If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.  

Thanks again for all you have done this year!!​

Teddy Bear Picnic: Bring a stuffy and a blanket or a towel.  We will be providing pizza and juice boxes for lunch.  If your child does not like pizza, please send them a lunch.  If your child is getting hot lunch, we will send pizza home for supper.

 

Student Readers: I have been contacting parents to let them know when their child will present their book.  They may read a take home book (keep this at home and keep practicing until they present) or a book from home that they are comfortable with.

 

 

 

Literacy

Sight Words:

  • We are reviewing sight words until the end of the year.  Students have been completing sight word assessments.

Reading Strategies:

  • Eagle Eye: He has really good eyesight and reminds us that we need to look at the pictures for clues about what the words might say.

  • Lips the Fish: This week we will learn about Lips the Fish.  Fish have great lips! Lips the Fish reminds us that we need to get our lips ready to say the beginning sound of a word.  We often combine Eagle Eye and Lips the Fish.

  • Stretchy Snake: Slowly stretch each letter sound to make the word

  • Chunky Monkey: Look for chunks you know inside of words (sing, flat, split)

  • Skippy Frog: Skip the word, read to the end of the sentence for clues, hap back and read again.

 

Writing:

  • We have completed an independent writing piece for June.

  • We will participate in reading responses.
