Calthumpians by Caden The snow and slush held off today and it was a beautiful day at Ian Baillie! We started out with a circle share where the students took turns being good listeners and speakers. We did our spelling word "beautiful" and worked on the "First, " section of a story for "How to Make Ice Cream in a Plastic Bag". Did you get a topic sentence and two details about your topic? We doodled an anchor and did some math. In math we reviewed our place value chart and our hundreds chart. We talked about samples and estimates. Tomorrow we will be looking at comparing numbers using greater than and less than. Some students in our class went outside, and others went to choir for recess. After recess we practiced our Remembrance Day song with the other grade two. In language arts with Mrs. Hill we practiced being editors and correcting sentences. We also did a round of the daily 5. At lunch some students stayed in for Mad Science and others went outside. After lunch we had a presentation by the Calthumpians from Fredericton! They shared some cool songs with us about caring for the environment. Do you know any simple things you can do to care for the environment? We finished off the day with our book of gratitude and got our agenda's signed. Since we had more happy faces than sad faces we also won the classroom toys back and had 12 minutes of free time! Hot lunch is tomorrow and Im still looking for a couple of permission slips to come back for the Remembrance day poster contest. Im glad everyone is dressing so warm because it is getting cold. Get lots of sleep and I will see you in the morning.
