Orange Shirt Day is a legacy that grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

  • Thursday October 5th is International Day we are studying Barbados if you have something from Barbados can you please email me

Today students worked on writing the cursive letter k and cursive words with that letter. 

Math Journal - today students practiced concepts involving estimation. Students were asked to look at a candy jar and estimate how many candies were in the jar. The student with the closest guess won the candies! 

Students then worked in groups to grab handfuls of counters and estimate and count how many they had. 

Great Job to Nafeezah who guessed 70 gummies and there were 63! We discussed how tomorrow we could make a closer guess depending on how full the jar is and from what we know of todays amount. 

Math: today students reviewed skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, 10's. 

They worked in their student books to group numbers of objects together by one of the above ways. 

Inquiry into Language

Today students continued to learn the rules for writing a journal. 
Date, Introduction sentence, body (First, Then, Next, Lastly), Closing Sentence 

Inquiry into relationships, rules and responsibilities

We did a practice run through of our skits to present to the class. 
Students then presented their skits on how to be a good friend. The class then had to decided who was the friend in need, the good friend and the problem for each skit. 

We ended our day by have gym class with Ms. Jans, you can check out her blog at
