Here it is, the last spelling list of the year! Enjoy!
Here is the link to Spelling City. Remember to do the quiz to get an extra bonus mark on the spelling test!
Students should now have their memory verses glued in their planners. Sorry for the delay on that. I had forgotten on Monday and then I was away from the class yesterday. So memory verses will not be due until next Wednesday!
During the last week of school before Christmas vacation, I like to do Christmas crafts with the students in the mornings from 9:15 – 10:15. If you are interested in helping out with crafts and joining us for some Christmas music and fun, please let me know as well as when you would be available to help. If you can come everyday, that’s wonderful or if you can only come one or two of the days that would be fine as well. Let me know and I will start building my schedule. We will be running crafts from 9:15 to 10:15, Monday to Thursday during that last week.
Due to the colder temperatures tomorrow, students (ladies especially) will not be required to wear full dress uniforms and may wear the standard uniform pants. Also with the colder temperatures, please make sure that your child is coming dress appropriately. While it is cold, children will still be expected to go outside for recesses.
I wanted to make you aware of a couple of items for this week plus show a cool video.
I have sent home review pages for the Science Test which will be next week on Tuesday. I have also added it below just in case. However, the “jar” won’t have the drawing I did to go with it. The description below it will tell what the jar is supposed to look like. All the test questions will be from the review pages.
Students do not have spelling this week but will be getting a memory verse which will be due on Monday.
Just a reminder that Friday is a P.D. day which means no school for students.
We are also starting our annual Salvation Army food drive. So start bringing your cans and other items (no perishables please!). The intermediate class with the most donations gets a pizza party!!!!
We saw cool video this morning of an amazing vocal group singing a Christmas song with a very unique twist.
So….I totally forgot about tomorrow being Knight Day. So, students are allowed to wear their Highroad gear with jeans. If you do not have any Highroad gear or don’t want to participate, you can wear the standard uniform for tomorrow.
Last music class, students were watching this crazy fun video called “Tuna Melt” that reminded me of the OK GO video. Mrs. Mackie said that it was hard to see due to the darkness of the projector. So I thought I would post it here for your enjoyment!
Who says it’s early for Christmas music? This is an amazing a capella group singing Little Drummer Boy. Wish I could sing like this!!
Here are the Spelling Words for this week:

The memory verse for this week is a nice verse from Psalms:
On slightly different note, the Grade 6 classes are raising money for Aid to the Philippines in the wake of the horrific tragedy that occurred there. The Grade 6′s are having a bake sale on Fri and will also be selling homemade bracelets. The bracelets will be 1.00 and the bake goods will range from 0.25 to 2.00. Any support will be appreciated.
As we move quickly into the winter season, we are getting more and more rainy days where students are forced to spend recesses inside. During those times, it is nice to have enough activities, games and materials available for the students to play with. While the class does have a few item available, oftentimes we don’t have enough for everyone.
To help out the class, we are looking for any unused games and activities that might possibly be donated to the classroom for use during rainy day recesses. We are specifically looking for:
