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!

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.

Keep reading daily!

Try this:

Have someone tape you reading a book so you can hear how it sounds. Use a book that you know and love. Does it sound like talking? Do you pause at commas, and stop at end punctuation marks? Does your voice get louder when you read words in BOLD PRINT?

Write a note or message to a family member. Hide it or leave it for them to find in an unexpected place. Examples: in their shoe, under their pillow.


Make a list of 10 things that either make you feel calm or give you good energy. Try to do something from the list every day. :)



Increasing (growing) patterns:

Ethan, Mia and their mom made math fun! If Ethan got the math question his mom called out incorrect, Mia got a chance to "wet him down". :) Great family fun!!

Good morning, boys and girls!

This morning I am writing your note in our classroom! It is sooo quiet without my 18 munchkins! :(

There will be today's home learning, and then next Monday will be the last post for this school year. I know the weather is warm, and you are getting tired of home learning, but try to continue doing some work for another 2 weeks. 

Take care. I'll be phoning from school during the week.

Feeling lonely in Room 144.
