Now it's November! Nov 2-6

It's a new month, and something I'm going to do at the beginning of the month is post a picture of all our students who have birthdays this month! This idea came to me a little late so I will highlight the birthday kids we've already had at the end of this post!
November Birthdays! 
 Can't wait to celebrate these birthday's later this month.
Libby and Kenna are a day apart at the end of November!

We also do something called sneak attack birthdays! For students who have their birthdays during the summer, there is a chance they will show up at school, and we will celebrate their summer birthday. Be sure to ask your child if we have any sneak attack birthdays this month! 

Week at a Glance
Secret Blog Task: This past weekend we had a time change. Discuss with your family what that means for our mornings and nights, as this is just another sign of fall! In your agenda write what time the sun now rises and sets. For example: rises at 5:00am and sets at 10:00pm. (Those are not the correct times!)

A Peek at Last Week
We had an excellent week of learning and fun last week. There was a definite buzz in the air as Halloween excitement was clearly evident. I have to send a huge shout out to the students, because for our Halloween Party on Friday, they were all on their very best behaviour, making the party fun for all! Another shout out is for the parents that supplied our treats for the party. Thanks to Wyatt's family for the beautiful cupcakes, to Marley and Blake's family for the tasty cheese and crackers, to Kenna's family for the yummy veggies and dip, and to Ryan's family for the delicious fruit assortment! Students loved all the treats, and were so good about trying different fruits and veggies too! My last shout out goes to the two parents who joined us for the Halloween party morning, you were great helpers! Now, enjoy a few pictures of our fun morning!

Each student created a Halloween Bingo card, and eagerly awaited each new card that was called. They all showed great sportsmanship while playing, cheering each other on when someone got a BINGO! Way to go students!
 We tried playing a different kind of bingo, where instead of just getting a 5-in-a-row line, they had to get a letter I. Kenna was our winner for this round! 
 Look carefully at all the funny faces and movement in this picture! This was before they had sugar!
 Us teachers have a lot of fun on Halloween too! 
Grade 1-2 teaching team!

Here is a recap of our earlier birthdays!

Melody was our first birthday this year.

October Birthdays
These boys are just a day apart in October!

These two girls will receive sneak attack birthdays in lieu of Audrey and Vannessa's July birthdays. In fact, Audrey has already been our first sneak attack birthday of the year!

 Blake will also be surprised by a birthday sneak attack in lieu of his August birthday.

Thanks for reading! Have a great week!
