Love the Kindness Notes

There were some suspicious grade 7’s lurking in the hall this morning.  I told them they looked like they were up to something but they said they were interested in some hallway work.  Mrs. G is always psychic and low and behold, kindness notes stuck to the library door!  Love IT you three! Thank you!

Big Thank You

Scholastic could not have been successful without the dedicated support of our Inman parents who worked tirelessly to make sure the book fair was successful.  Thank you for all that you do!  We had a fantastic turn out of so many families!  It was a pleasure meeting everyone. I am sure there were some surprise presents this holiday season and hopefully lots of pleasure reading. 

In addition, Mme. Chin ended up being the lucky winner for more Scholastic books from the draw.

Linking Words to the Pictures

After jotting down facts and questions about the life and purpose of the bee from our non-fiction library books, students are now going to find images representing their concept onto an Inspiration file.

The goal is to write the linking words that describe their relationship.  For example what do you notice about the linking boxes?

Getting Started with Bee Resources



Think about why the information is important for “Saving Our Bees”

The Science Learning Lab in NZ has some really good articles and videos.

Below are some videos to support your learning.

  • This video explains how bees make honey but it also explains bee communication.  You will definitely want to draw some of the bee moves!
