Miss Peter’s Grade

1 & 2 News


Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. I missed the students and am glad we are all back. Please continue to read the monthly updates, daily agenda messages and school websites in order to stay up to dateJ Remind is also a fantastic way to stay in the loop so please feel free to sign up! As always, if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.




Coming Up…

Here is what is in our near future:

Home Reading Program- Stay tuned!

Spelling Program- How it works: Words will come home in the agenda every Monday. We will be studying them throughout the week and there will be a quiz on Fridays. Please study them with your child at home as well.

We will also be starting a process called PWIM as part of our literacy program. Students look at a picture and create vocabulary around the ideas that they see. Together we categorize the words to practice fluency, paragraph writing, spelling rules and much more. I can’t wait! In numeracy we are in the middle of adding and working our way to subtracting. We will be continuing to study winter animals, adaption and hibernation. We’ve also been setting some goals for our new year. 

Try this at home:) 

When you have some extra time at home it would be great if you could work with your child on their spelling words, their reading and even their numbers:) As always your cooperation is appreciated! It is going to be a great 2017!

Library: Library will be starting up again right away. Please make sure your child keeps track of their library books. I will be sending 2 home each library timeJ

Backpacks: Please check your child’s backpacks regularly. Students are not permitted to bring toys or other belongings to school. It is also important that your child ensures that anything they bring home gets to their caregivers and any lunch left overs get cleaned up.

Health: Cold and flu season is upon us with a vengeance! We are working hard in the classroom to wash our hands and clean our work areas to help stop the spread of germs. Your child’s health is the main priority. Please do not hesitate to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.
