Year End Field trip

Hello Division 19,

We will be going on a field trip with Division 20 to celebrate the end of the year!  We will be going to 6 pack Indoor Beach (on Mitchell Island).  This place is so much fun, basically it is a beach inside a warehouse.  I went last year with my class and we had a blast.

Our field trip date will be Monday June 24 and the cost for this field trip is 7$.  We will be needing parent drivers to get to and from the venue.   We have reserved the facility from 11-1.  I will send home a permission slip in the next coming days but I wanted to let you all know in advance.  If you are able to drive, please remember that all children in this class need to use a booster seat and therefore take up more space in cars.

See you,

Mme Rode

Library this week

Hello Division 19,

Due to Welcome to Kindergarten this week our regular library period has been changed. We will be visiting Mme Bingham on Wednesday afternoon rather than Friday morning.  Please make sure your child has his/her library book in his/her school bag.

Thank you,

Mme Rode

Anderson Lip Dub

Hello Division 19,

On Friday, Anderson school will be making a Lip Dub.  A Lip Dub is a combination of lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video.  The theme for the Anderson Lip Dub is Social Responsibility and Celebrating Differences.

Division 19 will be participating in the lip dub.  Ms. Jiminez (the organizer) came and talked to us today.  She told the students to wear what they want (costumes, crazy clothes, crazy hair, face paint, sports jerseys, pajamas, super hero capes etc.).  So please have your child bring any items they wish to wear on Friday for the Lip Dub.

Once the video is edited, I will put a link to it on the blog.  I realize some parents do not want their child in a media event and have indicated that at the beginning of the year on the media release form. If at the beginning of the year you stated you didn’t mind if your child was in a media event and now do not wish for your child to participate, please let me know and I will make arrangements for your child during this time.

This should be a really fun event!  We watched a fun lip dub this morning from the UBC pharmacy students.  They did their lip dub to Carly Rae Jepson’s song It always a good time.

See you,

Mme Rode

Growing Chefs Foods with moods

Hello division 19 ,
Today we had another Growing Chefs lesson. We read a neat story showing different moods by carving vegetables. It was so creative. The students got a chance to express their moods using oranges. Here are some pictures.
