Here we are, the last week before the Christmas break.
The students started performing their J'ai faim presentations Friday; two groups will have to present this week because students were away. Once the last two groups have gone, Mr. Higgins and I will get the videos uploaded to this site as quickly as possibly. I think you'll enjoy them. I am!
They have also doing a really good job on their Save the Massassauga Rattlesnake posters. The Massassauga Rattlesnake is an Ontario species that was put on the endangered list earlier this month. These posters mark the end of our studies of habitats and communities in science.
In les études sociales, we'll finish up our investigation of Canada's geophysical regions. And, in math, we are starting to work with 2D and 3D shapes. I have some fun art planned using geometric shapes.
Christmas Gift Exchange
Thank you for your quick responses to our idea for a small Christmas gift exchange. The students are really looking forward to this and I am so happy to see them wanting to do something nice for each other. Each student will be responsible for one, wrapped gift worth $5-10. The gift should be generic -- something a boy or girl would enjoy (e.g. markers, books, Smencils, puzzle or other game books.)
We'll have our class party on Friday afternoon and have the gift exchange then and everyone will get a chance to pick one gift from the collection.
If you would like to send a treat for Friday afternoon, please remember that we are a nut-free classroom.
