What a great start to the week! We started off the day with our regular opening activitities. Our new word wall word was "what", our Rhyme Time word was "mop", our spelling word was "Assortment", and we did a "First," for "How to trick or treat".

Mrs. MacDonald did a hidden word activity with us. She wrote a message and covered one word in each sentence. We figured out the missing word by asking ourselves 3 questions; "Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?". That strategy can really help us figure out words we dont know when we are reading and come to a new word! We also did a read to self and a write to self activity.

After recess we had math. We worked on counting on from any number by ten. Can you start at 4 and add ten each time? We did a listening quiz on nickels and dimes. We counted money with a friend and reviewed the difference between dollars and cents. How much would two dimes be? How could I write that with a dollar sign? We finished off math with a worksheet on coins and a counting circle.

After lunch we did yoga in PE with Mrs. MacFarlene. I hope you stretched out and felt relaxed. Next we had Art Class. We started our blue prints for our Remembrance Day poster. I said we had to use a 3-4-5 rule. Do you rember what the 3 - 4 - 5 was for?

Vote for Aviva Playground project if you havent already! Get lots of sleep, dress warm, and I will see you tomorrow!
