Due to our excursion tomorrow, we agreed as a class to change our session 5 Lit Circles from Thursday to Friday this week.
We have just found out that the Montmorency SC band will be visiting our school on Friday. With this added activity and with sport and Pegasus, we won’t have time to complete session 5 Lit Circles. It will now be moved to Monday 30th. Session 6 will now be moved to Thursday next week and the last session 7 will be on the following Monday.
If you have already completed the activity – congratulations! You have the weekend off 🙂
Once you have created your November 2015 calendar, you are now ready to start filling it in! Below is a website where you can go back to the start of November and fill in the moon phases from 1st November to the 11th November (today).
A contraction is a shortened form of one or two words (one of which is usually a verb). In a contraction, an apostrophe takes the place of the missing letter or letters. Some contractions are: I’m (I am), can’t (cannot), how’s (how is), and Ma’am (Madam).
For example, “don’t” is a contraction that is short for “do not”; the apostrophe in “don’t” takes the place of the missing “o”. Another example is “o’clock,” a contraction “of the clock.” A less common example of a contraction is “jack-o’-lantern,” short for “jack-of-lantern”; in it, the apostrophe takes the place of the missing “f” in “of.”
