Sincere apologies for the lack of posts. Things have been crazy! Hopefully all the planners have been kept up to date.

This coming week is another short one. We will need to ensure we are on task with our time management skills being maintained. We will be making luggage that represents our families move to Canada (or move to Burnaby). Please bring a shoe box to school so we can start our suitcases. If you don’t have any at home, Mr. Wu has about 99 pairs of shoes still in boxes. Surely he can part with a few.

Tuesday will likely be busy with Spring Concert rehearsals. We will practice being flexible and accommodating. 🙂 

A gentle reminder that your reading time is to be used wisely. Your Thursday reading reflections need to be on topic and about the whole week of reading. If you are reading a book at home try tucking it into your backpack each morning along with your planner and lunch. 

Mr. Wu and I have been so impressed with you since our return from Spring Break. It really seems that you have adapted the new motto, “THIRD TERM, NO EXCUSES” with extreme enthusiasm. We honestly can’t stop bragging about you – the other teachers are very jealous. 

Have a great weekend, and be safe and happy!

Reading week approaches. This last week before Spring Break (wooooooo-hoooo) we will be focused on some awesome school wide activities. We will be decorating our bulletin board to reflect the novel, The One and Only Ivan. There is a bookmark design contest that we will be focused on as well. 

You have a math test on Tuesday and your last spelling test of the term is on Thursday. 

Have an awesome weekend, y’all!

Last week we started our core competencies books! Each day (hopefully) you will begin your day with determining which learning trait (or animal) you most want to work on. Our schedule should help you with this. If you see a day when we may have drama you might want to try being more like a dolphin (enthusiastic). These books will help us with our self-inquiry projects which we are working on to the end of year. 

Please remember that every Thursday you have a new spelling unit. Your tests are every Wednesday. There should be no surprises anymore when it comes to our spelling tests as we are now on unit 5. Although Mr. Wu and I don’t assign homework, this is something that you need to work on. Don’t let the silly mistakes get you! We will also be starting a new challenge: find the roots! With this challenge you will be tasked with finding root words around the school (dictionaries don’t count). It will be fun. 

I was very impressed with your attitude all week. I’d like to thank you for making me laugh until I cried and, for the most part, being helpful peers to one another. Our community of learners is really something special. I speak for Mr. Wu and myself when I say that we are very lucky to be your teachers. Thanks for being you!
