Hey Kids! Watch Glee tomorrow evening at 9pm! They are having a two hour special and it will be featuring a song/dance to the song by Katy Perry---- Yes, Firework! I'll be glued to my TV to see what their rendition is and how they portray the famous song by Katy Perry. I know I'll want to get up and dance when I hear it!!

Grade Four ESL

English Language Learners need to get more credit! They are so smart that they can pick up the English language very easily if they know their first language well. My experience with Becky has been positive. So far we have moved from the phonetic sounding out of letters to whole words and now full sentences in just one month. We have been using letter blocks, DVDs, bilingual reading books, easy level reading books, Dolche activity sheets, flash cards, and hand made worksheets using picture sentences. I have used a great website to create worksheets for Becky to practice her printing I also like the 'Write to Read' software that the Peel Board of Education has. It is an interactive software that Becky can use to create new sentences and repeat them aloud.

Grade Two

I know it has been a short time since I began with the grade two class at St. Mildred's-Lightborn School but I can hardly believe it's over already. I hope you enjoyed the word search activity sheets that I created for your habitat centres. I really enjoyed facilitating the worm habitat where you all used the gummy worms to learn about how they live while you used real earth, leaves, and water to build a home for them. I know you will enjoy watching the butterflies come out of their cocoons. You are a well behaved class and it was a pleasure to work with you. Have a great summer - you are lucky to finish so early!

First, I want to thank you for inviting me back to help out with your assembly. It was a pleasure to work with all of you to help you get prepared for your presentation.

Next, I want to tell you that you all put on a spectacular performance! It was absolutely amazing! Each of you knew your steps and did them in exact time with the music so well that it looked like you were all professional dancers! WOW! Hats off to you! - no pun intended :-) I loved the hats too - you all wore them with pizzaz!

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with such a special project!
