Monday, Feb. 24

1.  I am glad everyone enjoyed the Carnival.  Thanks to PAC for allowing this to happen with all their extra work and time!

2.  Character Descriptions- 50 marks.  Most kids have handed in and need to get their evaluation signed and returned. Unfortunately there are some kids who are falling behind or losing their projects.  Reports cards are being written right now so I have been encouraging students to get their projects in!

3.  Multiplication quiz signd and returned by Tuesday.

4.  Holes group projects- due Tuesday so students can practice for presentations Thursday and Friday.
5.  Holes movie- Friday- students can bring popcorn or a snack if they like while we watch the movie and compare the novel to it.

6.  Creative Writing short stories- First drafts have been written. I am conferencing with all students so they can begin their final drafts and prepare for the illustrations.  Despite many reminders, many students did not heed the criteria expected, especially for the endings.  When I told them it was not as easy to attain "A" and "B" marks in second term (because there is less review, more new skills), they are starting to now understand what I mean.

Friday, Feb. 14

1.  Thank you very much to all those that were able to send in vegetables, fruit, cookies, candy, etc. for our Valentines Party!  We had a very competitive/loud fun Math relay game and then we composed our Love Earth songs and performed them in front of the class.  The students are always very grateful and thankful and I really all parents; you are obviously teaching your kids some strong morals and values.

2.  Students are working hard on their Holes project.  They have completed their Holes vocabulary; some chose to redo (which I do not always allow, but I did this time) and received extra half points toward their mark.  They have had 7 sessions in groups to work on a group project.  We were going to have Friday, Feb. 21 be our special day for Novel Study presentations, but there is a Pro-D.  Thus, we will  do presentations on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 24 and 25.  They also have 2 character descriptions to finish next week. Then we will watch the movie to see the differences between the novel and movie.

There was no homework for the students except if they were overdue on anything.

Skating is also this Wednesday, Feb. 19, 10:45 until 12:00.  That means Mrs. Kossey and the students and drivers will leave from the school at 10ish and return at 12:20 or so.  Drivers who indicated they could drive are:  Cali-2, Brielle-2, Emily-3, Aleah-2, Kendra-6, Gareth-5, Samuel-3, Devaki-3, Jaime-2, Trevor- 4.

That is enough for 32 students so if a parent has to cancel, please let Mrs. Kossey know by Tuesday.  Thanks so much for helping drive!
