Here is a few important reminders:
Report cards: report cards went home today. Please look them over and send back the response form tomorrow. Also please send the parent/teacher meeting sheet back tomorrow with your preference indicated.
The 100th day of school: a memo went home today regarding the 100th day of school. This year it will be on April 19th, the day we come back from Easter break. The students were sent home with a paper bag today. It would be appreciated if all students could collect 100 items, put them in the paper bag and bring them back for the 100th day. Please refer to the memo for further instruction.
Homework: it is very important to continue to check the students homework bags each night. This is the main source of communication between school and home. It is also important to continue to read each evening with the students and to play a math game. This will help strengthen the skills the students are learning each day!
Thanks for your continued support!!

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone is doing well. I believe all of you are members of my private FB group-Grade 1 Moar but I will also be uploading some content on my teacher page as well.  

Thursday November 4th:


Reading-read for 15 min. This may include reading your borrowed books from school or reading one from home. Username:nblib


-Pick a book of your choice and listen to the read aloud.  After the story is finished do the comprehension quiz or just discuss the story with a family member. What was your favourite part? Who were the characters/main characters? What is the setting/where did the story take place?

Writing- My Favourite Season

Try using the 5 finger rule that we use in class

-Start with a good beginning that will hook the reader. Use a question, a sound effect or an interesting fact about your topic.

-Add 3 supporting details about the season that you picked. Why is it your favourite? What do you do like to do during that season? What changes occur?

-Conclusion- wrap up your writing, let the reader know that you are finished. Ex: That is why I choose Fall as my favourite season.


Practice counting forwards and backwards 0-20, 20-0

Play "Guess My Number"!! You can use the number chart in your learning packet to help/for guidance

-What # is 1 more/less than 12?

-What # is 1 more/less than 17

-what # is 2 more/less than 15?

-what # is 2 more/less than 11?


Enjoy some outside time!!! It's a beautiful day with lots of sunshine.  Play Hopscotch, make your own Snakes & Ladders board (1-30), practice writing your sight words in the dirt or use sidewalk chalk.

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well and keeping active. It's hard to believe but we are beginning week 5 of Home Learning. 

I've switched things up a little for the month of May.  Instead of a monthly calendar, I will post weekly choice boards.  Each day will consist of 3 activities (Math, Reading/Viewing, Writing) but students are only asked to choose 2.  I would recommend that you switch things up and try to complete a few task from each category througout the week (ex: not always leaving out the Writing activity)  I will also continue to add the weekly District STEAM challenges.

This week I am adding a couple new websites that seem wonderful and align quite well with our curriculum.  I know many of you are familiar with and have been using Dreambox.  If you wish to continue with that site, great!   I just had some parents share with me that there child was getting bored with it so I wanted to offer some other options.  For one of the websites, I was able to create a class list so I have your childs username and password.  The others are offering free trials for parents so you can just sign up for that. 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me  (Contact me for Username/password) (Math & Literacy) (Math) (Literacy/Y&YW/Art)
