Summer Reading Program

Giselle Wilson was here today to speak about the Summer Reading Program from the Palliser Library.  Your child has received a Summer Reading "passport" to document their reading.  Each book, or chapter of a book, counts as 1 entry in their passport.

For every 5 entries your child documents, they receive a small prize from the library.
Once their passport book is full, they receive a larger prize!

We will be walking to the library as a class on Thursday, June 22nd to submit our first 5 entries of our passports.  Those students who have completed and documented 5 entries will get their first prize on Thursday!

Thank you for the continued support with your child's reading!

Fairy Tales

Last week Miss Strutynski did a Guided Drawing activity to teach us how to draw a castle.  We will be using this to draw an Under the Sea castle after we watch "The Little Mermaid" at Globe Theater.

Grade One Math

Here a few pictures from our Math classes last week.  We have been using our knowledge of shapes AND our knowledge of structures from Science to build. Each structure had different criteria ~ tallest, longest, strongest.
