Reading, writing, pictographs and maps!

Dear Children and Families,


HOME READING:  All students need to be reading for 15 minutes every night.  You could listen to someone read, read a home reading book, read using Raz-Kids, read our POWER words, read a favourite book you have at home.
-It’s still cold! Dress warm every day with snowpants, boots, jackets, hats and mitts!

Important Words:

POWER WORDS:            away, make, no, up, like
These are words we are learning to read and spell.

ACADEMIC WORDS:       data, tally, survey, bar graph,  pictograph        map, legend, compass rose, scale
These are words that we are learning to understand the meaning of in math and social studies.


We practiced reading to self and reading to someone.

We tried out some yoga moves for our body break.

We put on our thinking caps today and wrote a reading response about the story Where would I be in an Evergreen Tree?  Ask me what connection and question I wrote in my writing journal.

In math we used tally marks to collect data for a survey. Then we created a pictograph

Ask me what I did during music and gymnastics this afternoon.

We talked about using maps to help us learn about people and places during Social Studies.  We made a map of our classroom today.

Tomorrow’s Class Leader: Ellie (remember to bring a stuffy to share, it must fit in your backpack)

A guest teacher named Mrs Wright will be with the students tomorrow, Mrs Collins is back Friday, Monday and Tuesday.  See you all on Wednesday.

Ms. MacMillan
