We took all our corn, tomato, cucumber and sunflower seedlings to the Palliser Height plot at the Yara Community Gardens. We spent the afternoon, planting, doing a scavenger hunt, and journaling. By the end of the afternoon, the entire garden was planted!
The School Community Council did a phenomenal job organizing a Bike Rodeo for all students in Grades 2-4. There were five stations. Students learned about how to properly adjust their helmets from MJ police officers. There were four other stations where students practiced biking skills. Everyone had a great time and learned a lot. Students even got a report card and activity booklet to take home!
Thanks to all the parents who helped out this morning! Also, thanks to everyone who brought the students’ bikes to school.
We had the great pleasure of welcoming two instructors from the EYES (Educating Youth about Engineering and Science) program at the University of Regina into our classroom to help us learn about structures.
“When children create for the world they make it good. When they only create for their teacher they make it good enough.”
Everyone dreams! Some of our dreams are scary. Some of our dreams are happy. Some of our dreams are thoughts and wishes of what we want to become or what we want the world to be. Our class has participated in helping write the eBook, The World Is My Audience 2: Dreams Around The World. It’s a book of dreams. We wrote chapter 21. If you have an Apple device you can download it on iTunes and read it in the iBook app.
Today we had the great opportunity to hear Mr. Brian Wilson, Moose Jaw’s deputy fire chief, talk about his experience in Nepal after the most recent earthquake. He just returned from Nepal last week after helping coordinate relief efforts there. We learned a lot about what engaged citizenship looks like from this presentation.
