Play With Your Food  We had a lot of fun last week with our characters and now we are starting to write about it. Each students character turned out beautiful.  The photos will be displayed on the school's web site later this week. Book Fair - This week there is a Book Fair at our school in the library.  It starts on Monday and runs to Thursday.  Family night is on Wed. So come on out to see what is there and spend some quality time together as well.    Christmas Dinner will be available for students on Wednesday, December 9.  A turkey dinner withdessert will be served.  If students are interested we are asking that the dinner be prepaid by next Wednesday, December 2. The cost is $5.00  No other food will be available in the cafeteria that day.           Texas Buddies will be back to school this week and we will resume our weekly Skype sessions with them.  They were off all last week for Thanksgiving break.  Also we are hoping to receive their package with our pen pal letters in it.  We will soon be preparing our Christmas cards and other surprises for them so we can get it all mailed out before the holiday break.  Wow where has the year gone.                    The weather is changing everyday and it mostly is cold down by the water at school. We would like to see that all students have the proper clothing on now.  They should have winter coats, hats, mitts and boots and usually ski pants if at all possible. Playing outside is fun when you are dressed for it!   We have a Word Work sheet and a organization piece of Writing that always turns out well as it gets the students excited about their writing. I can't wait to see what each student writes this year.  For Math we are still working on place value and working with tens and ones using base ten blocks. On Friday we will have our weekly spelling test and of course we need to read and RECORD  our books on our Borrow - A - Book sheet each and every night. Let's keep working hard as there is not many days left before our Christmas break.
 Our Texas buddies are off all this week as it is Thanksgiving in Texas.  We missed talking to our buddies last week as our skating schedule was upset and this conflicted with our Skype time.  So we sent them a message saying we will miss them and we wished them a great Thanksgiving break.  We hope to receive their package this week with their letters, a book and other wonderful treats.  We will Skype with them on Dec 3rd.  Play with Your Food is on Wed, Nov 25th. Everyone is encouraged to do their best and bring in a work of art. It doesn't have to take up a lot of time or cost a lot of money. We want everyone to look at home for a fruit or vegetable they already have and make it into their best creation ever. I can't wait to see what our students come up with this year!!  Counting money and working with numbers to 100 is still what we are working on. This week we are learning how to make numbers with 10' s and 1's.  We also will be learning how to describe numbers in a variety of ways. This is very easy and fun to do.  Our weather sure changed since our snow day on Monday.  It is very cold down her next to the river so it important that everyone comes with the proper clothing like a winter coat, ski pants, boots, hats and mittens.  It really isn't any fun playing outdoors if you are not dressed for the weather. So dig out the winter gear and lets get ready for the colder weather headed our way!!

Our budding grade two artist did a wonderful job drawing and using patels to color their portraits.  They turned out beautiful!

Today on Nov 10th we went out to visit our tulip garden. The weather was beautiful and around 14 degrees. The soil was soft, cold and a bit dry. We could stick our finger into The ground easily.  There were dead leaves, sticks and a few bugs crawling around.  The sky was bright blue and sunny and...

We worked really hard on doing an amazing job with our shading of the sky colors and making our Remembrance Day artwork turn out perfectly. We hope you enjoy them as much as you enjoy how well we did with our writing that goes with them. Stop by our hallway and have a peek.

Math We just completed our Math test and it was sent home tonight. Please sign it and return it tomorrow.  More working on money, especially counting different coins altogether would be helpful.  So dig out some change and have them practise at home. Right now we are moving on to Estimation. We came up with some startegies to do this by counting a smaller group and then using this to help us estimate what would be in the larger group.  This concept becomes easier and easier the more we practise so try to help out at home by letting the kids do this. In You and Your World we are looking at eating healthy, exercising, looking after our teeth, getting enought rest, and keep germs out of our boddies.  So please ask your child what we are learning as each week we will move on to a different topic.  Right now we have started with our TEETH.  Homework This week we only have three sheets to complete as we have no school on Wed. However, I still would like for the students to read each night and make sure you record it on your sheet each night so you can move up to the next level and get a reward.  Our three sheets consist of a word work sheet with the short U vowel sound. A math review of our concepts we were just tested on and then a writting sheet about Remembrance Day. As you may have noticed the writing sheet is no longer three detailed sentences but rather a small story with lots of good details. Each sentence needs to start with a capital letter and end with proper punctuation.  Try to use Million Dollar Words and it finally needs a beginning, middle and end.  Keep up the good work and it will only help you to become a better writer in class as well.  As usual we have library on Friday so return your book.  We talk to Texas on Thursday and we can't wait to see if they mailed out their letters to us. We were told that they received our letters and other items we sent. They were very excited to get such a nice package in the mail. We are eagerly awaiting  for ours to arrive in the mail as well.

At Nelson Rural we will take time to remember the brave ones.  Our ceremony starts at 10:00 am in our gym. The ceremony is well done with everyone in our school playing a special part.  It is a very beautful service and if you have time come on out to take part with us.  Hope to see you all there.  Abby Carter will be our wreath carrier this year.

Remembrance Day is a holiday for all students.  Please take the time to remember the brave ones who gave their lives for our freedom and for those who are still fighting to keep us free from harm.  We truly appreciate all that you do.  A donation for the poppies our students will receive tomorrow would kindly be appreciated as well.
