In our new Reflection Books, we took time to write some of our thoughts and feelings about the first week of Grade Four. Here are a few excerpts:
I’m happy to be sharing a room with nice people. It’s exciting to get to know more people in grade four.
I enjoyed making muffins on the first day. I can’t believe we put zucchini in it!
I was very surprised to be baking on the first day. And our room is so big, we are turning it into Canada. I can’t wait for next week.
I like how we are making our room like a map of Canada. I think this is going to be a good year.
I really like the birthday bucket. I didn’t know that was a thing in school.
I really like the birthday bucket because my classmates wrote nice messages and that made me feel good.
It was really nice that both teachers were almost in tears when we did the birthday bucket!
I’m excited that we get to learn French this year.
I enjoy French and practising how to introduce myself.
Having gym two times a week is awesome.
I like the quiet music when we are reading and writing.
I mostly like lunch because I get to see the good stuff in my lunch.
Art is my favourite subject in the whole world so I think this will be the best year. I mean it.
We did baking, a puzzle and that was only the first day. I know we will be doing a lot more fun stuff.
I like that we are all wondering if we are getting a fish or a lizard. I think it’s a fish.
The best part was discovering the caterpillar.
I’m excited that we are going to name our caterpillar.
I really like all the exciting activities. I am excited to come back tomorrow.
I like how my teacher makes us wonder about things and wants us to be kind and creative.
I have enjoyed my classroom because it feels like home.
With a positive first week under our belt. I look forward to our learning journey ahead!! (More about the caterpillar next week:)
