Notes

Posted: February 27, 2023

Hi folks!

We will be staying put at the school this week with no field trips! It's been a while since that's happened. Keep having your child read at home each night for homework.

Here are your (and my) reminders for the week.

DAILY - Proper winter attire for playing in the snow such as snow pants, hats, mitts, boots and jacket. Students get outside as much as possible and it's much more enjoyable when they are dressed properly. 

MON - School Spirit Day (KSE colours), need gym clothes

TUES - Career Day (come as what you want to be when you grow up), need their recorder

WED - Hat Day (wear a funny or favourite hat), need their recorder

THURS - Disney Day (wear disney clothing or dress as your favourite disney character), need gym clothes

FRI - Pajama Day (wear your PJs), need gym clothes

 

*Reminder that March Break is March 6-10th.* Many parents are worried about their children loosing progress over the March Break (or even if being absent for many days due to illness). Online platforms such as Lalilo and Splash Learn are still available during the break if you want some "good" screen time or keeping up with their skills.

All for now!

Hi folks!

We are going to the Nelson Ski Club tomorrow (11:30-2) to go CROSS COUNTRY SKIING! We had the chance at this last minute and I jumped on it! We are looking for parent volunteers to come join the fun. No experience necessary and there is equipment you can use at the club. Come play!

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD HAS A PACKED LUNCH FOR TOMORROW (THURSDAY). Light snowpants, hat and mitts are suggested.

Friday will be a regular school day. Monday is FAMILY DAY (no school) and on Tuesday we will be going to Losier Hall and Bridgeview to play crib with some residents in the morning.

I think we are having too much fun!

All for now.

Hi folks!

Today we had our SNAP graduation with cupcakes, a certificate, pencil and bracelet. Ask your student what it's all about! Here are some pictures to see: Mme. Robichaud | King Street Elementary (nbed.nb.ca) Our SNAP reward will be a painting class and canvas with treats. We will be doing this on Thursday afternoon.

We've been learning about Lunar New Year and have made lanterns. Tomorrow (Tuesday), we will be decorating our laterns. If students have any special stickers or ribbons they'd like to bring in to decorate their lantern, they are welcome to do so.

Students have new guided reading books in English and French, along with French word cards to review at home on a daily basis. We fell off the wagon since Christmas and will have every one set-up once again by mid-week. Also, students have Lalilo accounts (in English & French) and Splash Learn accounts (for Math) if you'd rather do those at home for their 15 minutes of homework. It's all good and options and variations are helpful.

For February we will be doing a Reading Bingo instead of the Monthly Math Challenge. Students are to read their guided reading books for this, or an appropriate levelled book of their choice. Once completed, send it in for a ticket!

Tuesday & Thursday we will be painting in our class. Feel free to bring a change of clothes or paint shirt.

*Solo speech forms are due February 6th for those interested.*

All for now!

Hi folks!

Tomorrow is the Grade 4 scheduled test. It is on provinces and capitals. Here are some tricks we use in class: John lives in Terre-Neuve (Nwfl), Claire Vic lives in Colombie-Britannique (BC), Y goes with "W" (Yellowknife & TNO, Whitehorse & Yukon), a MAN flies a jet (Winnipeg, Manitoba), long places together (Charlottetown, IPE), the queen in Sask and ton and ta goes together Edmonton, Alberta.

Grade 3 students will have a Math test later this week. We have been practicing our subtraction with regrouping. Example questions: 623-521, 618-479, 508-148, and 489-197. We also complete questions like: 700-148. The trick there is that the 70 goes to 69 tens and 10 units.

Also just wanted to send a heads up that there are quite a few sore throats etc in class, interrupted sleeps etc. Some cranky kids! haha. Hoping everyone gets healthy super soon!

All for now!

Hi folks!

After a wild start to the week with a snow day, school delay and a gazillion fire alarms, we are back at 'er! We've been learning about important people who have made positive change for Canada and the US. So far we've discussed Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Barack Obama and Viola Desmond. I strongly encourage everyone to continue these conversations at home - not only during Black History Month but every month! The Lunar New Year is coming and we will be having a fun time on Monday making some paper lanterns. Students will be given a red envelope to share with you at home.

In Math, Grade 3 students have mastered addition with regrouping and now are working on subtraction with regrouping. We will then be moving on to basic multiplication. Grade 4 students have covered multiplication facts and are now concentrating on division. They will be moving on to multiplying 3 digit by 1 digit numbers. Getting to the big leagues now!

Science experiments and learning about the Scientific Method is in full swing. Grade 3 students are covering NB nature and animals. Grade 4 students are looking at countries of the world. In English we are puttering along too - finishing graphic novel unit.

Grade 4 students have a quiz on January 25th on NB provinces and their capitals.

As I type this out, we are learning LOTS!!! Best get back to the students! We have a lot to do. Pictures will be posted to our website later today of our week.

As always, feel free to shout out!

Hi Folks!

Happy fake Friday! No school for students tomorrow as it is Parent-Teacher. Just wanted to let you know quickly of a few things before the weekend....

#1) Students have some writing pieces we are completing before Christmas. Grade 3 students are learning about the government and are writing an opinion piece of a rule or law they'd like to change. Their "homework" this weekend is to come up with something they'd like to change in the house, school, province etc. Ex. bedtime, screen time, chewing gum, driving age etc. Grade 4 students are learning about Canada and will be doing research on a province or territory other than NB. Their "homework" this weekend is to narrow down a province they'd like to learn more about.

#2) There's a pair of "Outbound" black winter boots that have been left at the school by our hooks. If they're your child's, please let me know!

All for now!
