Good morning!

The worm results are in! There are 20 worms in our referent jar. In the larger jar there are 51 WORMS! That's a lot of sour! ;)

Ms. Ava MacKinley had the closest guess! She said 57!

Ms. Emma Cuthbert was second closest with a guess of 90!

The worms will be delivered this week.

Congrats, girls! Happy chewing! :)

It's time to guess again! There are 20 gummy worms in the small jar. Remember, the small jar is our REFERENT. We REFER to it to help us  guess (estimate) how many worms are in the large jar. I'm waiting.....

Good Morning All!

I hope everyone is doing well! It was a dreary weekend but this week is looking good. The mosquitoes are terrible at my place! :( And they are as big as my hummingbirds!! ;)

Today's Home Learning Post will be the final for the year.  We made it!! :) I'm working on report cards, and, hopefully, I'll see you on pickup day but we're still not sure how the pickup will work.

This year, summer begins on June 20th. So, 12 more days of spring and then we are into the season of summer. I hope you and your families have a great one!! :)

Although the year didn't go as we thought it would, I treasure the time we had together in Room 144! 

Miss you! Play safe!


Ms. Hackett :)

In Science, we learned about plants, soils and habitats. We didn't get a chance to explore Canadian Rocks and Minerals. So here is a little lesson..... you can find, and identify, lots of interesting rocks right in your backyard. When you find a new rock, clean it outside using water and an old, soft toothbrush. Have fun exploring! :) Opaque- something that does not allow any light to pass through it.
