Some Fire safety tips from Grade One:"Don't touch the stove"  -   Madison"If you have a fire, call 911"   - Jazlyn"If your clothes are on fire STOP, DROP, and ROLL!"    -  Chloe"Don't play with matches and lighters"   -   Dustin & Jamie-Lynn"Call 911 only for emergencies"   -   Clare We had a visit from some Firefighters and practiced a fire drill.  I encourage you to talk to your child about your fire escape plan and, if possible, have a fire drill at home. *Reminder:  no school for students on Thurs., Fri. and Mon.(Oct. 10, 11 &14 ) 
Well, it's going to be another busy week in Grade 1!!  We are busy thinking about all that we have to be thankful for, as well as how we can be safe with our Fire Prevention Week activities.  Today , we did some writing about Thanksgiving.  These students sure have lots to be thankful for! In Math, we have been working on Representing Numbers to 20.  We have been counting lots of different things and using a ten-frame to help with our concepts of numbers. Students are working hard at reading numbers in lots of ways and using phrases such as "one more than", "one less than", etc. Tomorrow we will have a visit from our local firefighters!

Today was "School Colours Day" at Nelson Rural!  Lots of students dressed to show their school spirit.  We wrapped up our Wellness Week with some "Fun and Fitness on The Field".  We had fun doing the "Freeze Dance" and then kept movin' with some fitness activities.  I am very proud of the students' effort in writing today.  They worked really hard at adding more detail to their ideas.  What a smart bunch of kids!We used our apples to conduct an "experiment"....ask your student about what we observed.We also had a taste test....which colour of apple do you like:  red, green or yellow? Next week we will be thinking about Thanksgiving and Fire Prevention Week. Have a great weekend!

Today was Twin Day at Nelson Rural!  We enjoyed a nice walk in the October sun and had fun dressing like a friend.  New Sight Word lists were added to homework folders and the students are excited to take their poetry folders home to share with their families!

We made apple crisp today!   The students worked really hard cutting up the apples, then we mixed up some brown sugar, flour, butter and oatmeal and crumbled it on top.  It sure smelled and tasted good!Tomorrow is TWIN DAY;  pick a partner and dress the same in our TWIN PARADE!

 We had a great day at the Apple Orchard!  Thanks to the Home & School for paying for us to go!  We had a ride on the wagon and picked some yummy apples.  Then we had lunch in the barn!  They sent us back to school with a bag of apples and a pumpkin!  Hopefully we will make something yummy with our apples.Check out a picture of us at the Apple Orchard in our Image gallery. Tomorrow is "Walk or Wheel to School"  day.  If you are able, encourage your child to walk or ride their bike to school.  Some families choose to drive as far as the Little White School on Sutton Rod and then walk or ride to the school.
