Dear Grade Five Parents,

Happy March to you! With report card time just ahead of us, we have been busy with testing and evaluation. I would like to once again, extend an invitation to you to contact me if ever you see a need regarding daily events, report card questions, or any concerns. Thank you to all parents who very generously contributed food for our February Valentine Party, and also for the "sweet" gifts! I hope you enjoyed your woven Valentine Holders. I thought they were very creative and unique.

Our last month Home Reading Program was a great success. Although not all of the students in our class were able to meet their reading objectives, we reached 90% completion. Remember the Boston Pizza Reading incentive as well. The children and I have set that goal for ourselves. Please encourage your child to complete the Home Reading Card in the agenda, return it for the deadline at month end, and benefit our grade five children in the process. Scholastic has also given us the opportunity to help provide books for children in need by simply reading one hundred books ourselves. I am looking forward to seeing the results of the March Home Reading Program.

Our Speech Arts Class Finals will be on Tuesday March 7th as soon as our judges arrive and are ready to go in the AM. I would like parents who would like to listen to their child, and need to get to work, to come at the start of the school day. We’ll accommodate those parents by allowing their children to be the first to present. We have thirty two entertaining poems ready to go! Congratulations Grade Five!

We have been enjoying many presentations of Oral Reports. The main objectives of this assignment are to develop an appreciation of our unique interests, to practice speaking in front of people, to improve memory skills, and an enrichment activity for our Language Arts programs. Thank you for all your attention to this event and its preparation. The children are very motivated and excited to share their interests with their classmates.

Please continue to support your young children at home in reading, studying for weekly spelling tests, reviewing for Science, Social tests, and, especially in continuing basic math fact drill. Long division is indeed a tedious task if one does not remember their multiplication facts!

Look forward to French mini animal booklets, information you always wanted to know about The Periodic Table of Elements, Ash Wednesday and Lent, and the continued study of the Regions of Canada. By the way, has your child entertained you with the French Version of Oh Canada, or told

you any Bible Stories from the Book of Genesis? You’ll be amazed at how busy we are! We will also be presenting Class Power Point Presentations on the life of our Patron Saint, Saint Patrick on March 17th.

Dear Parents,

          February already! Hearts and Valentines! First of all, a gigantic “Thank You” to all of the Moms and Dads who were able to help us with skate tying and skating, and Hockey playing for skating in January. We really enjoyed our four skating times this year.  All the help and support was much appreciated.

          January was Oratorical Month, however, this year the change is to Class Finals on Tuesday March 7th, with the Grade Finals in the Library to follow sometime that week. My students worked so diligently at memorizing their Halloween poems and preparing them for presentation, that I have no doubt the very same will be true of their chosen Speech Arts Poem.  I always marvel at how the choices suit the children. There are thirty-one different and funny poems to enjoy.  Our judges will have a most difficult time choosing only six finalists. Thanks for all of the at-home help with this project.  I’m sure we will see many of our parents come to support and listen on judging day.

          February is “How To” book report time for those of us who didn’t present in December. The children will have chosen a project to make at home. Upon completion, they will present to the class and give us the “How To” instructions. I chose February for this project so that the children would have the Family Week to prepare. It is “Sports” book report time for the other half of the class.

          February and March are also “Oral Report” months for Grade Five. The children will prepare an “oral report” at home on a topic of their choosing. Something that interests them, and that they can teach the rest of the class about. They may prepare a poster to help organize their thoughts.  This poster may include drawings, photographs, written or typed information on their topic, etc. I will provide the poster paper, and can help with printing at school if saved on a thumb drive. Both reports will be due at month end, or shortly thereafter. (Hopefully before the Easter holiday in April.) Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, or if I can help in any way.

          PLEASE continue Home Nightly Reading, signing your agenda page at Month end to track reading, Spelling Practice, and Math Basic Fact Drill. The more we have our Multiplication facts memorized, the easier our classroom work will be. If you access our Classroom Blogspot on the St. Patrick’s Home Page, there you will find links to “Spelling City” with all of our spelling lists, Raz Kids, and Mathletics.

           I have invited Constable Dave into our classroom to teach a lesson on Forensics in line with our Classroom Chemistry. You’ll be hearing all about “The Case of the Missing Stapler.”

          Things to look forward to include Scientists in the School Classroom Chemistry on March 2nd, Motion Geometry, Multiplication, Division, Data Management, Onomatopoeia, Personification, Valentine Story Writing, Valentine Party on Tuesday February 14th, Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Interior Plains, and Cordillera Regions of Canada, Provincial Internet Research Projects, as well as an i-pad project based on the Seven Habits of Successful Learners.…….Wow! We are a busy bunch!

Happy February, and enjoy Family Week with your children.
