What’s the plan for the field​ trip to the movie “Wonder” on Monday?

Students arrive at school as per usual.

All of the classes going to the movie leave on the rented school bus @ 9:15.  (Thank you to Scotia’s parent and Xanadu’s granny, who will chaperone on the bus and at the theatre.  They should arrive @ the school near departure time.)

9:45 – We arrive @ Silver City Cinema, Tillicum
10:30 am – The movie starts
12:30 pm – Anticipated movie end time
1:15 pm – Approximate return time to EMJS, then we have lunch.


The homework to Monday is…

1.) Prepare for the science quiz on chapter 2 in the textbook on simple machines. Use the work in your Science duotang to study.

2.) Continue to take notes and prepare your materials for our vacation project. The details for this assignment were handed out a week ago and are in your SS duotangs or new vacation project duotangs.

The homework for the rest of the week…

…is not spelling.

It’s to practice multiplication facts for 5 minutes a day, and, to hunt for point form facts (re-written in your own words) about your Canadian province or territory for your Vacation Project.  See your Vacation Project handout for details on the kinds of information you are to be hunting down.!

Discover Canada: The vacation project

… was officially announced today! To find out details and deadlines about the project, check out your child’s social studies duotang or vacation project

The homework for tonight? Go on a treasure hunt for facts about your chosen province or territory!

Hint: See the information in the vacation project hand out about “chapter 1” for details on what sort of information students are hunting for.

The Remembrance Day assembly…

… is after recess tomorrow, and you are invited.

Students who are participating in the service have been asked to wear a white shirt or blouse, black long pants or black skirt and dark shoes (if they have them).

BTW The homework for tonight is to simply study for tomorrow’s spelling test and to spend 30 minutes or so practising math skills with Mathletics online.


…is an online way to practice numerous math skills. EMJS has a license for it until the end of November.

Students in our class each have an account and are enjoying using it in class.

They were asked to do Mathletics at home tonight for 30 minutes or so.

Hopefully they’ll have remembered their passwords & user names! 🙂

The homework for tonight is to play games…

… online times facts practice games!

It’s time for students to improve the speed and recall accuracy of their basic times facts. Tonight, using our classroom blog, they can practice times facts using the online games that are on the right side bar of this blog page. Look for the section called “Practice Math Facts”. Students should practice with these games for at least 30 minutes tonight!

Lots of news for Halloween week!

* There’s no homework tonight or tomorrow night.

* A social studies quiz was announced today. It will be next Monday. The study sheet for the quiz was handed out today. It should be in student doutangs.

* Soon, there will also be a surprise quiz on the capitals of Canada’s provinces and territories. Students will not need to spell them, just match them correctly.

* We are skating this Thursday afternoon. We will walk to the OB rec center around 12:50, and leave it around 2:30. The class is legally required to have two parents volunteers who will walk with us to and from the rec center. Please let me know ASAP if you can help us!

* And finally, thank you to everyone who helped make my birthday a special one!! 🙂 What a lovely class this is!!


The wolf visited our school today.

The kids reported she had very soft fur (they expected bristly).

There is a brief adding practice for homework tonight.

Turns out…

… the majority of the class wanted a spelling mock test tomorrow! So, the homework for tonight is to study for that quiz.


If you are wondering what your child earned on that recent Basic Canadian geography social studies test, the marked test was handed out yesterday. Students were told to put their tests in their homework duotangs and share them at home.
