Happy Leap day!Today was also Pink Shirt day, and as a class we looked fabulous. Mrs. Martin had us go outside and took pictures which will go on her blog I'm sure! We, and the whole school were a sea of pink… indicating a strong anti-bullying, pro-tolerance stand. Homework: Grade 5s should have the Island of the Blue Dolphin read by tomorrow (TH) Math:
Gr. 5s: p. 137 # 5, 6, "Reflect" (Th)
Gr. 6s: p. 127 # 1, 2, 4, 5 (Th) Socials:
Gr. 5 p. 51 Understand what Naturalization is and the three steps to it, and understand (but not memorize) the content of the Citizenlship Oath. (Th)
Gr. 6: The "KWL" chart on Japan should be updated with our look at the physical geography of its four main islands, and especially the lowland plains. This is not so much due, as it is adding to the ongoing knowledge we have of Japan and its culture. Reminders:
Children may want to participate in our fundraising efforts via "Jump Rope for Heart" (research into Heart and Stroke disease). The school is trying to raise $4500, and we were still short by $1300 earlier today. Any amount would help. Those that participated in the "Vancouver Giants Read to Succeed" program should have their form on hand. Tomorrow (Th) we have a follow-up assembly with members of the Vancouver Giants at 9:50 a.m.
