Creating imovies for Arbor Day

Dear Children and Families,

Arbor Day Celebration
Team 72 is very excited to be one of the classes presenting at the Arbor Day Celebration on May 4th.  Our school will be the recipient of a Siberian Larch Tree from the City of Calgary in honour of Arbor Day and it will be planted on our grounds during a special ceremony in the afternoon.  Unfortunately due to fire regulations we will not be allowed to have our families join us at the 1 pm assembly.  We will be presenting our assembly for you at 6:05 pm in the evening.  After our presentation you will be welcomed to our room to see more of our learning about trees, and then you are free to walk around the school to see what the other students have learned too.

Save the Dates:
Arbor Day Celebration May 4th 5:50pm arrive at school, our assembly is at 6:05pm.
Science Centre Field Trip May 23rd
Trout Release May 26th
Zoo Field Trip June 5th

-Home Reading: practice our Arbor Day songs please!
-Arbor Day notice coming home today

Important Words:

POWER WORDS:            practice any 5 you like!
These are words we are learning to read and spell.

ACADEMIC WORDS:       ipad  photo  image edit  crop save
These are words that we are learning to understand the meaning of.


We read to self and read to someone.  We practiced reading out loud to our partner to sound like real talking.  Good readers sound like normal talking so they can understand the words.

We are working with Ms Handlesman to create imovies to share tree facts with Cranston School staff, students and families.  Today we took photos, selected photos and cropped them to create the background for our movies.

In math we played the number sandwhich game and had to write number sentences too!

Ask me about gym and music. 

Blog Question:  What do you know about subtraction?

Tomorrow’s Class Leader: Wesley (bring something to share with us that fits inside Ms MacMillan’s Egg and have 2 clues ready to help us guess what is inside)

See you tomorrow!

Ms. MacMillan

  1. Annie's says, when you subtract a number the number doesn't move forward it moves backwards
