Skiing & Skating

We were lucky to have such amazing temperatures for our skiing and skating days this week!  It was so much fun to get outside.  Thank you to all of the parents who came out to help us out!  And thank you to the instructors from the Red Deer Nordic Ski Club who taught us on our ski day.

Learning the "bug" technique for rolling and thenskiing  getting up on skis.

Sounds is Vibration

This week in science we have been experimenting with sound.  We have learned that Sound is Vibration! We have also been learning about the difference between pitch and volume. We have been experimenting with this by making different homemade instruments.

More from Flat Stanley!

Flat Stanley is a world traveler!  In the last few weeks of December we heard about his travels to Red Deer, England, Florida, and Nova Scotia!  So exciting and very interesting!


We played math "scoot" during the last few days of school in December.  This is a fun way to practice math while moving around the room.  Students get one minute to answer a math question and then "scoot" to the next spot to answer another question.  There is a new question on each desk. We mark the answer sheets as a group when we're all finished.

Last Day for 2017, PJ day!

December 22nd was the last day of school for 2017 and it was school-wide pajama day! So much fun!

Polar Express Day!

Here are a few pictures from our Polar Express Day.  In the morning we read the storybook and in the afternoon we watched the movie.  We received a special delivery from the North Pole during our movie.  Mrs. Roberts said it was dropped off by a drone, she brought it straight up to our classroom!  Inside the package were bells and Polar Express keepsake tickets.
It was fun watching the movie in our pajamas while enjoying hot chocolate, candy canes, and popcorn!

Celebrations Around The World

Here are a few pictures from "Peru" on our Celebrations Around the World Day.  Students made worry dolls.
