Bring On February!

Hi There Everyone!  We are ticking right along in our Grade One classroom!  We are so excited to be learning about Fairy Tales and Building Things in both Language Arts and Science this month!  Keep your eyes open for an upcoming project in which students will be invited to bring their own Fairy Tale to share from home.  In Math as you know, we are learning about adding and very soon will start subtraction.  In Social this week we are exploring maps in our world and Lethbridge landmarks.  This blog post is to keep you up to date on some upcoming events that have been booked for our class.  Please mark them on your calendars!  I'm sure we will have more to add in the future, but wanted to keep you in the loop.  

January 29: NO SCHOOL

THURSDAY, February 11:  Valentine's Day Party!  PLEASE have your child bring their Valentine's to school any time after Monday, February 8.  Because our 100th Day party is the next day we will be exchanging Valentine's Thursday at our party.

The following families are signed up to bring snack.  Snack can arrive in the morning, or anytime before 1pm.
Cheese and Crackers: Jace
Fruit: Austin
Veggies: Royal
Cookies or Muffins: Cooper

Friday, February 12:  100th Day Celebration.  Thank you for all the parents who have offered to join us at our celebration!  I'll provide more details soon, but if you responded to my email, I have you down on my list.  Because we have extra volunteers, parents will have a chance to help out with the centers, but hopefully spend some time participating in some of the events with their children. Awesome!

Finally, here's a little introductory letter from my PS111 student, Brittney Petkau.  She's fabulous and we are LOVING having her here with us!


Wow! What a treat it has been for me to get to know your kids over the past three weeks. We have had a lot of fun so far and I am looking forward to spending more time with them and teaching them new and exciting things.
A little bit about me: I am in my last semester of University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education in May! I love teaching science to young ones as they have such a fresh perspective on the world and their creativity is limitless. I also love spending time with my family (I have three adorable nephews and nieces) and am excited to start my teaching career once I graduate!
I would love to invite you to help out in our classroom in the coming weeks as we continue our Building Things unit in science. I will send home a letter early next week with available dates and an explanation of what we are doing. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me (brittney.petkau@lethsd.ab.ca) or stop by after school.
