January 17th – 22nd

Hello Parents,

This week in bible class students will continue to study John 8:31-32.

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Grade two pet show! 

Grade two have been reading a story called No Longer a Nobody.  In the story the main character, Sammy,  has a pet show to get ready for in his class.  Sammy doesn’t have a pet, but he finds a snail and he learns everything he can about the snail. Slowpoke the snail becomes Sammy’s pet and  Sammy even wins a prize in his class’s pet show.

Grade two finished the story on Friday and will be having their own pet show on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.   Students have already chosen the animal they are going to present and have been working on three things to say about their pet or favourite animal.

For this pet show I would like students to bring in a picture and/or video of their pet, or if you don’t have a pet, of your favourite animal.  Each student will be required to  show the picture or video of their animal and tell us three things about it.

If you would like to email your child’s picture of video please send it to jbarton@gcspei.ca  so I can have it ready to show when they present.
