First week of 2019!

We had a weird start to our week . . . the buses weren't running, but we were only missing 5 students in Room 31. We did some sharing about our holidays and worked in a New Years booklet. We worked on a messy art job with chalk pastels, but they are just awesome! Something that's been fun to start is our paper blogs. This is the very first step to getting our own online blogs. The students are being so creative with designing these. A new month means new spots and this time, students had the opportunity to create their own plans and layout of the desks. Then, we voted on the favourite design and today, students chose their spots.

Here is Brooklynn's TWAS . . .

The buses were not running so I stayed home. I played on the Wii I played Wii sports bowling with my brother it was so fun I also played just dance and Mario cart 8. We played outside me and my brother were jumping in hills of snow in my yard. I helped my mom clean some of the house because my brother and sister made a big mess.

We had art we made 2019 fireworks first we had to draw 2019 in bubble numbers on a piece cardstock paper. Then we had to cut them out. We put tape on the back of the tracers and stick it on the piece of black or blue paper. I picked a black piece of paper. After that we had to take chalk pastel and color over the numbers in two different colors. Then we have to take different colors and make mini fireworks on the sides.

We had to design a setting plan me, Rilla, Bapreet and Anna were in a group. We each made a design and when we were all done we showed each other and none of ours won. But the one that did is cool and we get to pick where we sit. We also did BHS reads I read a dog book with Anna I don’t remember what it’s called.

We did book buddies. We had to help our buddies on the computers with Reading Takes Flight. We had to help them submit for their class to get a chance to win 1 or 2 players from the Winnipeg Jets to come read a book to your classroom.  We also had class meeting we played as the wind blows. As the wind blows is where someone is in the middle of the circle and they say as the wind blows I like dogs and if you like dogs you would stand and move to the other side of the circle.

We had gym today we played paddle ball. I was with Anna the first round and for the second round Amelia. We also have paper blogs. I am on the gadgets part and I’m working with the sharpie and about to go on to coloring.

Last week of 2018!

It was a very busy week for us in Room 31 . . . especially with the Holiday Spirit Week! We created beautiful abstract cards for our families, made some snowman mugs that were "snow" cute, and finished off the week with a carol sing-a-long assembly that also included saying goodbye to Mr. Altomare. Thank you to all the parents for providing treats for our party this afternoon!

Hope you have a wonderful winter break and Merry Christmas!

See you on January 7th!

Our first Winter Carnival!

This week was full of excitement! On Wednesday, we had our first ever Winter Carnival and it was amazing! We had over 500 students and family members RSVP for the event. And we couldn't ask for better weather! Thanks to the Gesell family for providing hot chocolate and apple cider and all the families that donated cookies (a total of 4 tables worth!). Inside activities included caroling, curling, a craft, and a photobooth (thanks to my sister: 4 Square Foto). Outside activities were snowshoeing, and a sleigh ride with real horses! The East St. Paul fire department and RCMP set up in the bus loop and we got to see a fire truck with a ladder extended to 100 feet! It was such a fun evening!
