I hope that everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather.  Both classes enjoyed time outside with their Reading Buddies this week.  A reminder to apply sunscreen on your child before he/she comes to school as we are often outside when the sun is at it's strongest.  Children should also being wearing hats and water bottles are always helpful to eliminate trips to the water fountain.  I have also sent home the children's extra pair of shoes from their cubby.
Thank you to everyone who bought a copy of our Morning Class Nursery Rhyme Book for Springfest.  Thank you to everyone who donated items to our Afternoon Fun/Picnic Basket.  Both articles helped to raise money at the Silent Auction.  It was wonderful to see everyone at Springfest enjoying all the fun activities.  The money raised at Springfest helps to provide many wonderful activities including Scientist in the School, Artist in the School and Smart boards in the classroom.  Also thank you so much for your donations to Tombola for Springfest.  I hope everyone had the chance to play this popular game.
Mayor Rob Ford has proclaimed Monday, Blue and White Day in Toronto to support the Leafs as they play their 3rd playoff games against Boston.  Wear your blue and white or Leafs apparel and show your Leaf spirit.  Go Leafs Go!!
We are continuing to study 3d shapes in math.  The children have been finding examples of 3d shapes in their environment.  The children will also have the opportunity to explore which shapes slide and which shapes roll this week.  We have also begun 2 letter blends in our Jolly Phonics lessons.  This week we will be working on some special projects for an important member of our family.
There were no Snuggle Up books this weekend in your child's mailbag.   I hope you have the opportunity to read favourite poems in the Poetry books and practise high frequency words.
