A bone chilling, long week has ended. Thank you for helping your child pick out one small toy to share at school. Indoor recesses went smoothly because of the variety of toys. Please be aware that depending on how quickly or slowly the temperature moderates, we may have another day of indoor recess on Monday.
If you are looking for a warm activity to do with your family this weekend, Confederation Centre Library is hosting a free Family Literacy Day event on Saturday from 12pm-3pm. If you would prefer to stay home, ABC Life Literacy Canada is encouraging Canadian families to have “15 Minutes of Fun” learning together. Learning can happen at any time. Practicing literacy together for just 15 minutes a day has tremendous benefits for both children and parents. Here’s a link for some fun and free activites the whole family can enjoy together: http://abclifeliteracy.ca/fld/15-minutes-of-fun
Next week is a fun-filled five day week for our class. On Monday, January 28, we will having our Fairy Tale Adventure. The children are excited to come dressed up as a fairy tale character and are looking forward to playing “Guess that Fairy Tale”, from the eleven lunch bags waiting for us on the ledge. I have a number of other events planned and I look forward to seeing your children grow and learn in a different way.
On Tuesday, January 29, our class will be going on a field trip to the Confederation Centre Children’s Library. This will give us an opportunity to enjoy some different books and other activities. While at the library, the students will be receiving a free copy of I’ve Lost My Cat. If your child has his/her own library card and you would like him/her to use it, please let me know how many books you would like brought home. It would be helpful if library cards were placed in the conversation pocket of your child’s agenda for Tuesday morning.
