Week 22

We had a very busy fun filled week!
Nature Center Field Trip
We leaned about the lives that live under the ice. We explored onto a frozen pond to learn about ice safety tips and observe what were underneath the thick (8 inches!) ice. We got to take a closer look at the micro-creatures using a microscope. We also learned about the food chain in the lakes around us.

100th Day of School
We all had fun celebrating the 100th day of school. We all brainstormed ideas for celebration together and picked one activity. Please check out your child's blog for the activity.
Here is a video clip of brave three students who did 100 jumping jacks:)

Book Club Bingo
We are celebrating reading this month at global level. It is called "Book Club Bingo" and we are using Twitter as a sharing platform.  We are using a special hashtag, #bcbingo15 to connect with students from other schools. You can see your child's tweets in the Twitter feed.

Valentine's Day Party
We will celebrate Valentine's Day on Friday, February 13. Please find a note about Valentine exchange in your child's Friday folder.
