We wanted our friends in Dallas Texas to see what our winter in Canada looked like.  We took a picture of Beaubear's Island and our school to send to them.  Next we will visit our tulips and send them a picture of what our garden looks like.  They are very different.

Boy we sure had a lot of fun on the 100th Day of School.  It took us 100 days to reach this special day and we took a few days to learn about it as well. 100 can be big and 100 can be small.

Just before our Christmas Break we watched a movie called the Polar Express. It was a lovely day and we all wore our PJ's to school.

Our pen pals in Dallas, Texas sent us a picture of their class with their Red Emperor Tulips.  The weather in Texas is a lot warmer and it sure looks like Spring has sprung down there.  How did this happen as they only planted their flowers in January and we planted ours in the Fall?

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.
