The final week of classes before the winter break was a busy one around Nose Creek School. 4E students were keen participants in all the activities that took place this week. On Monday was Hot chocolate for $1 in the gym, Tuesday was Santa Hat Day, Wednesday was Pajama Days and finally on Thursday many students went to the year end dance or participated in afternoon activities like face painting, watching a Christmas movie or making crafts.
Students put final touches on their fossil opinion pieces during class this week. Also, each child chose a dinosaur found in Alberta to research. Demonstrating skills and processes for inquiry and research are integral parts of the Social Studies curriclum and will be further explored in 2018.
Over the Winter break, students are encouraged to read for 20 minutes per night. During time away from school this a great way for students to keep up their literacy skills in an ongoing way. For practice, students are encouraged to come to this blog and take part in the activities provided on the Word Work link provided here: gradefourncs.weebly.com/word-work.html
I would like to thank all parents/guardians for the many thoughtful gifts I received. All of them were very good and I enjoyed getting home baked goods! I look forward to seeing my students back in January 2018. Have a peaceful and enjoyable vacation!
