October 22


What a day!

Our day began with assembly where the student's sang O'Canada followed by assembly, calendar, agenda's and spelling. Some of us did guided group reading with Ms Giles.

After recess, we had Math. We are reviewing core patterns, attributes and different types of patterns. In language we continued with research for New Zealand. 

After recess we did our Unit of Inquiry. We looked at land, water and air transportation from the past to the present and future. We then had Drama. We got our scrips today! This play is do-able if we work hard and practise our memorization at school and at home! We have to do 5 minute speeches this year, this should be a good start to prepare for that!

Our day ended with cursive writing!

Have a wonderful evening and see you all tomorrow!
