Community Clean-Up

Thank you Grade 3s for caring about our Earth!  You did a great job cleaning up Batteaux Rd. and I'm very proud of you!

Pioneer Days in Grade 3!

We had a great time at the Simcoe County Museum on May 22nd!  We dressed up in "pioneer gear" and learned a LOT about the ways of life in the 1800s.  Thank you to all parents who were able to join us that day! 












Maddy's Flat Stanley went to Iceland!

Wowzers!  Iceland is a beautiful part of our world and now Maddy's Flat Stanley knows that first-hand!  He visited a waterfall and stood on a glacier!  He saw some beautiful mountains too!  The only part of the trip that Flat Stanley didn't enjoy was having to leave!!!  Great job on your presentation!

Sophia's Flat Stella is home from England!

Flat Stella had a wonderful holiday in England meeting Sophia's family!  She visited homes, many tourist attractions, and went to school with her cousin!!!  You'll see his whole class in the picture!  And the couple with Flat Stella?......those are Sophia's great-grandparents!  It looks like Flat Stella had a wonderful time!   And guess what???!  Stella even visited Buckingham Palace....the home of the Queen!!

Reader's Theatre

What a wonderful time we've had with Reader's Theatre!!!  Kids have truly worked well together reading their scripts, practising their lines, creating costumes and props and presenting some GREAT plays!  I've been very impressed with how comfortable everyone feels performing in front of our "classroom audience" and how complimentary students are with each other.  We've had very positive vibes in the classroom!  And..........ACTION!!!










Fun at the Y.M.C.A.!!!!

Well, I did not get as many "water pics" as I would have liked but I DID get some fun ones in the gym.  Half of our time at the "Y" was spent playing cooperative games in the gym and the other half was spent in the water.  What a great program they have there!!!!  The kids were on the move, getting their hearts pumping, and showing how great it is to stay active and have FUN!!  Many survival lessons in the water were learned as well.  Certificates will be coming home soon!!

Google Slide Presentations for Easter!

Last week, we worked in partners to create slide presentations for Easter!    We practised finding bright, colourful images from the internet that would engage our audience and build excitement, just as advertisements should do!  We also practised typing brief messages with proper capitals and punctuation.  Some kids even added photographs to their presentations!
