Weekly News For November 21st - 25th

Dear Families:

 We look forward to meeting with you later this week to celebrate your child’s successes and look at ways we can further support their learning needs. If you have not already booked a time for an interview, please contact me so that we can make arrangements.

 What we are learning:

Literacy - This week we will begin our next 5 words on list 2 (we, am, then, little, down) and our new phrases.  Our reading strategy for the month of November will be to look at the beginning sound of an unknown word and get our mouth ready to say that sound.  We will also introduce the silent “e” (cane, time, tube etc.).

Math – We will continue to work with number combinations, looking at all the ways we can make a number (e.g.  6 can be 3 and 3, or 4 and 2, or 5 and 1, or 6 and 0).  Also, we will continue talking about equal and unequal sets (balanced or not balanced).

You and Your World - We will be further exploring the topics of community and groups.

 Information Items/Dates to Remember:

·       Report cards go home today, Monday, Nov. 21st and parent/teacher interviews will be held on Thursday evening, Nov. 24th and Friday morning, Nov. 25th (no classes for students that day).

·       We are still in need of volunteers to work the cash for our Book Fair Fundraiser – if you have even 1 hour of your time to donate please contact Mr. Murphy (seth.murphy@nbed.nb.ca

·       There will be 2 Christmas concert performances this year.  The dates are December 12th and 13th.  The Christmas Concert is called “Elflandia” and both shows will be at 9:15 a.m. on those dates.  Families with last names starting with A-K are Monday, and families with last names starting with L-Z are Tuesday. All children will be performing on both days.

·       Parents are asked to send in an elf hat (from the Dollarama is perfect) as soon as you can so we can use them for rehearsal times.  Thank you!


·       Each night have your child read 1 good fit book to his/her “homework helper” and please practice your sight words and phrases as well.

      Remember to send in your library books. (Friday is library day) As always, if you     have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at school, send a note in your child’s communication bag, or send an e-mail.
