A Message from Jonah:
Jonah has enjoyed many of your weekly activities. Here are some of Jonah's drawings dedicated to learning about Ladybugs, and Butterflies.
A Message from Oscar:
Happy Friday! I hope you had a good week.
Oscar had a busy, insect-themed week. He was excited to learn about ladybugs and other insects and spiders. We even discovered an interesting bug called 'Stink Bug' in our home and decided to keep it for a few days for research! Oscar got quite attached to the bug and was a little sad to release it back to nature.
He wrote a story about the Stink Bug (with a lego model), as well as one about the Black-footed Ferret.
This is A Stink Bug.
It has a body that looks like a shield.
And six legs, two antennae and a long beak.
I have a pet Stink Bug.
I found it in my house.
His name is Squirt.
Black footed ferrets live on the Prairies in North America.
They are very cute but don't let that fool you.
They are vicious hunters.
I'm also sharing a drawing of a monarch butterfly that Oscar drew and a picture of him and his dad with a "Koi-Nobori" (carp streamer) to celebrate the Japanese holiday Children's Day. Please feel free to post these on the website.
Hope you have a lovely mother's day weekend!
Anna, Oscar and Ben

Here are my picture stories this week! We had a couple of birthdays in our family this week, so we substituted a couple of birthday cards on Monday and Tuesday :-).
A Message from Poppy:
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week Amy, Hyma and Jane! Thank you for all you do! We miss you!
I measured my sunflowers and they are 10cm tall now. My green onions, bok choy and basil are growing. I forgot to share my chicken lifecycle. I want to have chickens when I grow up so I can collect their eggs. I love lady bugs and have a new lady bug bathing suit and lady bug pajamas. I wondered if there were blue lady bugs and we looked online for pictures and discovered one that is called a Steel Blue ladybug. It doesn't have spots. We also found out that there are many pictures of blue lady bugs but they are pretend. I wondered how moths were different from butterflies. We discovered that they have many similarities but most moths go out at night while butterflies go out in the day.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
A Message from Rafe:
This week Rafe did some painting, colouring, made a marble run and then drew a picture of it and wrote some notes to give his dad while he’s working (this one says “Dad is a goofball”).
Sharing Our Stories
During distanced learning our class wanted to feel connected to each other. For this reason, we set up this page on our website. Here the students shared their stories with one another! Parent permission was received to post all pictures. This year, we will be using this page to show weekly student work.
