Concert practice

We have 2 Concert performances tomorrow.......... 1PM  &   6PM. 
Ms. Rempel has requested that your child wear a white shirt and black or dark coloured pants tomorrow. Students can just wear them right to school.  
** TIP for PARENTS:  after dropping off your child at our classroom between 5:30-5:40PM, go get yourself a seat, as they fill up quickly.

This is our.... "STAR of the WEEK"
  
We spent the morning practicing for the concert.

Concert practice


We spent most of the afternoon in the gym - practicing on stage for the xmas concert!  You are sure to be entertained next Tuesday!  
  
Sharing Time.

I wanted to share this comment that a parent wrote on the blog a few days ago. (I hope he/she doesn't mind.)  

"Mrs. Grant, my son wanted me to think of six-syllable words last night, and we were wondering which body part to tap for the sixth syllable, since five takes you down to your feet. I tried throwing my hands up in the air for the sixth syllable, but he didn't seem to approve."
It challenged our class to try out some six syllable words - to see what actions we could do as we broke the words down into syllables (yes, we do use this word in class!) We hadn't come across any 6 syllable words in our times of counting syllables, so we tried out these words .......  responsibility ...... veterinarian.   and on the 6th syllable, we threw our hands up in the air!  It seemed like a great thing to do for the 6th syllable!  (tap ...head-shoulders-hips-knees-feet-hands up!) So thank you so much to the parent who commented on syllables, and gave us this great idea! We love it!

Our Star of the Week did a great job telling us all about himself. Later this week,  we will be writing a story about everything he told us about today!!

dots and TWAS

We rolled a die, then circled the corresponding number of dots!
 
Putting the letters of the alphabet in order!
 
At the end of the week, we like to think about some of the things we have done during the week (at school), and then write a "story" about it. Right now, our stories are usually about one sentence long. We call this our "T.W.A.S." story  (*This Week At School). We write down the sounds we hear in the words.
Here are a couple of the stories today..... (can you read the Kindergarten writing?)
 
  "I played with animals."
 
"I played at house centre."

Sharing Time.

Spaceship!

Ms. Janz, (our EA), worked her magic to create a space ship for us. We are wondering if it is similar to SoundBuster's space ship. Hmmmm...
     
We practiced for the winter concert -- with the Grades 1-2's
 
We did a cut and paste today - matching numerals to the number of candles on the cupcakes!

He was SO proud of  the little person he made of himself!
 
No one (from our Tuesday group)  remembered to bring in something for sharing today. :(
