Dear parents/guardians,

 

While trying to cut an avocado I accidently slipped with the knife and cut my radial nerves in  my hand. I had hand surgery last week and I am recovering. Under my doctor’s supervision, I plan to return to work on June 26.  Thank you for your understanding.  

 

Sincerely,

Wendy Douglas

Hot Lunch

May2

The Hot Lunch program that usually runs from Tuesday to Friday has wrapped up leaving us with just the Fundraising Lunches.

So what does this mean?

It means that IF you have ordered through the online lunch ordering system, lunches will only be served to the students on Mondays and Thursdays through the months of May & June. Please ensure that your children have lunches each day of the week.

With this being said, don’t forget to place your final June lunch order by the end of Thursday May 11th.

For more information about the School Lunch Programs please go to the Lunch Programs tab of this blog or contact Jennifer at 780-983-1316 muirlakelunches@gmail.com.

Writing

January20

Dear Parents,

A writing sample will be coming home on Tuesday, April 25. We have been writing in our journals daily with help from the teacher to spell words, use of spelling dictionaries, and sounding out words. In January we started writing with more length in our journals. We are currently trying to write 7 sentences or more.

We always discuss and come up with ideas before writing. Students can choose their own idea or topic.

We are  experimenting with writing stories both fiction and non-fiction. We are trying to write 7 sentences or more whenever possible. I will often ask the students the following questions to help increase ideas/details when writing: who is in the story, where are they, what is happening to him or her, what happens next, then what happens, tell me what it looks or feels like, or how do you want the story/writing to end?  We are also working on editing our writing. We are trying to put periods at the end of sentences and capital/uppercase letters at the beginning of sentences and when appropriate in the sentences.  When your child is writing at home please help him/her to edit his/her writing for practice and reinforcement.

words their way

November22

The grade ones have started a new spelling program called “Words Their Way.” This is a word study program in which students learn by sorting words into categories. Each week your child will be bringing home new spelling words in the form of categories. We will be doing activities during the week to practice making and spelling these words. The test will be every Friday(Thurs. if no school on Fri.) Below are some activities you may want to use to help them study during the week.

Use letter cards to construct and deconstruct words, making it a guessing game with clue.

Hinks Pinks – http://www.thinkablepuzzles.com/hinkpinks/

Word Hunts – using actual paper!

Apples to Apples – game that builds vocabulary

Boggle – for the iPad too!

The children do their best to put their boots on the correct boot rack but often boots are taken by mistake.
