Today was Arli’s last day, we wish her well at her new school in Saskatoon.

We finished the book Charlotte’s Web and will be watching the animated movie on Thursday(April 14) afternoon. The children can bring a small snack (no pop please) to enjoy with the movie.

Have a great weekend!

Bison art with Mrs. Melenchuk

Yesterday we finished the art project that we had started before the Easter break. We painted a landscape to put our buffalo on. They turned out beautifully, the pictures don’t do them justice.

It was Mrs. Melenchuk’s last day with us. She is now getting ready to write her final exams and prepare for her internship next fall. We wish her all the best and hope you come to visit us in June!

Learning about First Nations

Yesterday in Social Studies we read about how Nahanni and her Cree community were nomadic, which means that they moved often. They lived in tipis which were made from long wooden poles and animal hides. They were  easy to pack up and move. We also read about how the tipi was very special, it was more than just shelter. The tipi held teachings on how to live in harmony and happiness. There were 15 poles and each had a teaching. See if your child remembers some of them.

We also talked about symbols that Nahanni’s community may have used to communicate with. Then using paper and crayons we created our own version of a tipi and decorated them with symbols of our choice.
