Phys. Ed. - Winter Selfie Challenge
Winter has set in and the temperature is starting to drop. We often notice at this time of the year fewer and fewer children playing outdoors due to the cold. We are Canadians, WE ARE WINNIPEGGERS…it's time we help our little ones learn that IT IS FUN to play in the snow...that the cold is no more a barrier to outdoor exploration than the extreme heat, humidity, and mosquitoes of our summers!
With the 2018 Winter Olympics set to begin, we are concentrating on taking the Physical Education program outdoors. Your children will learn what they need to be prepared for during the winter season. For instance, we have been discussing how to layer their clothing appropriately for the winter and the importance of being able to remove or add pieces to adjust their heating/cooling needs. Tools like this will help them to continue outdoor play for extended periods of time.
We would like your assistance over the next month to help teach your children different activities that we can do during the winter. A detailed list of suggestions will be sent home this week with our youngest and only students. We encourage families to post the note up in your home and we CHALLENGE our Frontenac families to do at least 10 activities and to document them by taking a selfie. Please tweet or email your winter activity fun to the school and/or Mr. Nordheim, Mrs. Hildebrandt or Mr. Collier.
I Love to Read Celebrations
We will be celebrating I Love to Read during the week of February 12th – 16th. Our theme this year is "Pages to the Podium" and it coincides with the Winter Olympics. Our Opening Ceremonies are scheduled on February 9th to help us kick-off all the exciting activities and fun that we have planned. We have already welcomed two Winnipeg Jets players as guest readers and we look forward to welcoming other special guests throughout the month to read to our grade groups. In addition, we will have daily D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) sessions, Mystery Readers, Design Your Door, and Page Tally challenges!
