News from the Social Studies Department (By Halle): This week in Social Studies, we learned about the states and quizzed ourselves to see if we knew the states just by looking at a map that was numbered in the order of the 50 states. We also used our textbook to write down all of the Canadian Provinces and wrote down all of the capitols of the Provinces. We also learned about the different characteristics of the United States and Canada including the land forms and all of the main waterways and where most of the population of Canada lives (St. Lawrence or the Manufacturing Center of Canada).

First off, I had a blast at the skate night at Traxside on Thursday. Thank you to all the families that made it out. Please check out pictures page of the website for a few pictures I took. If you ever take photos at the school events and want me to post it to the class Flickr homepage let me know.

On our pictures page I will post things we are doing in class. I will try to also put other examples of work on there too that are either pictures or video. Make sure you check that link every once and a while. The other way to see the pictures is to go to my Flickr account directly too. The link is https://www.flickr.com/photos/bradsinger/.
For upcoming important dates, including days off, Market Day pick up, etc. go to our Calendar. There will also be a sakte night at Next week we have our big event in the Walk to School day on Wednesday. We hope to have every kid participate. I know Mr. Beiser and I are excited to be part of the celebration outside before the start of school. We also have our Trailside Cousin’s day next week Thursday. Go to Cousin’s and spend money, in return Trailside will make money. How easy is that?
