Happy holidays to every "former" member of my grade 4/5 class of 2012/2013.  I hope you have a great summer vacation.  I hope to spend some of it on the beach!

One of the things I like to do with my students at the end the school year is speed stacking.  Today we finished our first tournament.  Maybe we'll do another one next week.

Nothing in our agendas today!

This morning we worked on science. The grade 5s are adding the respiratory system to their paper models of the human body.  The grade 4s are working on a slide show about an endangered animal.

I hope everyone an enjoyable afternoon participating in Berrigan's Play Day.

Our last few weeks at school are shaping up to be busy ones.  The grade 5s are learning about systems of the human body by building a paper model.  The skeletal system is now complete.  The grade 4s are learning about habitats and communities and will be starting a project on an endangered animal soon. We are also reading and watching the Second Voyage of the Mimi for Language Arts, area and perimeter for Math.  Add Dance, French and Health and you can see there are still many things to do!

Tomorrow is a PD day. No school for students.
The Berrigan BBQ is June 13: 5 - 8 pm




If at all possible, students without glue sticks are asked bring one in. While I do have a few to share, it will make completing our grade 5 human body project much easier!

June is such a busy month that sometimes we forget to appreciate the beauty of the flora and fauna outside! Take a moment to breathe it all in!
