Earth Day Countdown

April 22nd is Earth Day.   Check out Earthday.ca or Ecokids for great ideas on how to protect our planet.  We also have some great books in the library.  Come and see Mrs. Araujo if you want to check one out and stay tuned for more details about Earth Day events at our school.

Literacy Fair and Student-led Conferences

This week South Slope will host a literacy fair and student-led conferences.  Visit the gym for the book swap, book walk and take a tour of the amazing literacy displays.  Mr. Douglas has lots of fun planned in the Music Room with recorder stations. The Library is open for the Scholastic Book Fair.

The computer lab will also be open for you to explore online resources.  If you have an email address, I invite you to leave a comment on this blog about the Literacy Fair and/or your visit to your child’s classroom.  Here are some sentence starters you could try:

I noticed…               I liked…                  My favourite part was….

This reminded me of…                 This was the same as/different than…

I wonder…              I think…                I learned…

We hope you have fun!
