Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to get to work when you come back to class. We have a really busy week! Firstly, I want to congratulate our top spellers, Sophie Jardine and Griffin Doucet, who did a fabulous job at the District Spelling Bee, knocking out all of their competitors and got to the grade five spelling list! Great job, guys! I am so very proud of you both. I am also very proud of everyone in this class. You have shown me time and again just how smart you are and what great workers you are. You have finished the grade 2 spelling program and finished the Canadian Grade 2/3 program. Now we will begin the grade 3/4 program and guess what? I ;looked at all the units in the book and they look really easy to me. I think you guys will rock this program too. We will begin with lesson 1 this week. So, here is our homework for this week. Spelling - Study one column of words each evening and the test will be on Friday. Complete Ex A and B before Friday. Handwriting - Complete one sheet each evening. Take your time and do your best writing. Handwriting is difficult at first and it will take you some time to get the hang of it. We will begin the sheets in class. Reading - Read for 15 minutes each evening. You should be reading from your levelled book or novel you were given in class. Math - Complete the math sheets by Friday. If you do them ahead of time, hand them in to Mrs. Page. Important Clue: I have sailed the ocean blue, And I have saved a booty to share with you. But first you must guess my name And learn about my terrible game. You see, I am mean and hate to share, And I've hidden a treasure most rare. Aye, it's sure to rot your pretty teeth, And mom won't like it, not a bit. Harty mates, are ya ready for some fun? Looks like my game has just begun. Look all around your class my friends, X marks the spot!
