Author's Purpose, Stampede Breakfast Reminder, Shape Challenge, and Wetlands Water Testing!

Stampede Breakfast Reminder: Hope to see you tomorrow! 

Royal Oak School Stampede Pancake Breakfast!
We are excited to announce that the Calgary Stampede Downtown Attractions Breakfast Committee will be hosting a free Stampede Pancake Breakfast for our entire school community and their families on Friday, May 24, 2019. This event will begin at 7:00 a.m. rain or shine and will run until approximately 9:00 a.m. Families are encouraged to come early to enjoy this free yummy event.

This year we are excited to partner with William D. Pratt Middle School and will be bringing the communities together on the basketball courts and the Pratt soccer fields. Families are invited to bring a blanket or camping chair to sit on as they enjoy a breakfast picnic on the basketball courts and the adjacent Pratt fields. In the event of rain families will be invited inside the gym at W.D. Pratt School.

There will be no teacher supervision provided at the Stampede Pancake Breakfast, so families are responsible for the supervision of their children for the entirety of the event. Our teachers will resume their regular supervision on the school grounds at 8:55am and our regular school bell will ring for student entry at 9:10 am.

All families are encouraged to wear their best western attire to show their Stampede spirit!

Author's Purpose

This weeks reading homework and literacy groups has all been based on: Determining the Author's Purpose.

After reading about small, crawling and flying animals we had to determine the author's purpose and how and why we thought so:

Please do this activity at home with your child using their Home Reading or Just Right Library Books and send back next week.

Reminder: This is the last week of Home Reading being sent home from the school and of Literacy Homework activities. Please ensure that you have returned all Home Reading and school Library Books.

Math Shapes Challenge:

Today we started a challenge question about Shapes:

Ask me what my solutions were?

Wetlands Water Testing Field Trip

Today we got to walk to our wetlands and do some water testing with experts!

Next week we will look at all of our results and compare between the 6 Grade 2 classes (since we went on 3 different days). We will also be re-testing a in another few weeks to see if the results of our wetlands remain healthy.

Ask me what part of the testing I helped with?
