     It was an exciting day at Ian Baillie today! Our school got 3 new students, did you meet them? Our day started off with our regular routine. The spelling word was "overgrew", our writing included and introduction and a "First," (so two paragraphs), for yesterdays story "How to Make a Pie". What does "indent" mean? Why do we indent? We also doodled a shark.

     In math we started off with a listening quiz with six questions deciding on which unit to use. We reviewed what an estimate is, and did math with a friend to practice our addition facts from 0-20. We practiced estimating and measuring objects in the classroom. Were your estimates close to the actual measurements?

     After recess we had language arts with Mrs. Hill. We did a read aloud and our daily 5 activities. Which activities did you choose? Read to self, buddy read, word work, write to self, or listen to reading? Some students also worked with Mrs. Hill for a guided reading.

     After lunch we had music. We are working on a song for the music festival in April. "The Cat Came Back", should be a hit! I'll keep you posted on dates and times!

     In PE with Mrs. Hache I saw lots of red faces and heard I have some great runners! I was even challenged to an end of the year race! Thats silly, everyone knows Im the fastest runner in all grade two!

     We finished off the day with a video on dental health . We talked about the importance of brushing and how to brush. We packed up our agenda's with some memo's and got ready for home.

     If School is cancelled tomorrow that means that Thursday will be the 99th day of school and that Friday will be the 100th Day of school! Remember to dress up the way you will look when you are 100! Get lots of sleep, dress warm, and I will see you in the morning!
