A Visit from Grade 5

Today we were the luckiest grade 2 class! Mr. Bachmeier came over from WCMS with his class and they performed 8 Fable skits for us. Each group came into our room, performed their fable and then asked us about the lesson of their fable.

They did a fantastic job!

Field Trip Fun!

We had such a fun day at the University. The weather was good, the children were so well behaved and the bus ride was noisy!

All 3 programs that we attended were interesting and we learned a lot. I was happy to hear that everyone had a different favourite…ask your child which they liked the best.

Thanks so much to our parent helpers Tyler (Kaleb’s dad) and Melissa (Ryan’s mom)

For many of the kids a highlight was watching a black Ratsnake eat lunch….not me!

Grade 10 French

This morning we were lucky to have the grade 10 French class come to visit us with Mme. Schneider. The term one class came earlier in the year, and today her term 2 class came.

They brought some stories that they had written and illustrated in French. The grade 2 students rotated through listening to the stories.

I love this because many of the grade 10 students were in my kindergarten class many years ago!

Literature Circles

Yesterday we started our Literature Circles reading the book Laura and Jack.

The students have been divided into 4 groups and each day we read a chapter together. After reading the students move into their groups and have a job to do. They will rotate through the jobs with each chapter.

I love reading this book with the students!

Please note that if your child goes to reading club with Mrs. Sielski they will not be doing the literature circle

Guest Speaker

This morning we were lucky to have Mr. Lyndon Linklater from the Office of the Treaty Commissioner come to speak with us about Treaties and First Nations Culture. He played his drum and did some singing for us too. He had a special ribbon shirt that his mother had made for him. The ribbons on the shirt stand for water, air, animals and fire. Mr. Linklater said that his mushom and kokum (grandpa and grandpa) had told him many stories about respecting the earth and what it provides us.

He also told us a very funny story about 5 brothers with magical powers. Ask your child if they remember any of the powers.

I do have some pictures, but technology is not my friend today and they won’t load….I will try and add them tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚
