After recess, we had buddy time, which was another art activity but one where the older students could help their little buddies with some basic skills such as cutting out circles and coloring in the lines.
Finally, after band 4 more students presented their Social Studies Current Events projects. I have been pleasantly surprised at the confidence the students are showing as they present in front of their peers. As one student noted yesterday on the website comments - it is nerve wracking having Mrs. M taking notes down and having 26 sets of eyes watching every move you make. Everyone is doing an amazing job.
Over the weekend, take time to talk to your family members about things that you are passionate about, things that you would be willing to persevere through, and things that you want to know more about, are really intrigued by. Next week we will be setting up a Wonder Wall where you will share your questions, the things that make you go "hum?" to begin our Genius Hour.
1) French - ornament due Tuesday
2) Genius Hour - See the Genius Hour tab for two new posts. Respond to the prompt on that tab.
- Think of two questions you wonder about, are curious about. Be ready to post these questions on our Wonder Wall - Monday
3) Soapstone supplies - Many students are getting close to the polishing stage of their soapstones. It is important that they have a rubber glove for the hand that will be using the steel wool. Steel wool cuts the skin easily therefore the need for the one rubber glove.
Deck the Halls and Soapstone news
On Monday the school is set to deck the halls in the afternoon. Parents have been invited in to watch and be a part of this great activity we do each year. Division 1, though, will not be participating at the same time due to our soapstone session. Our class will need to wait until Tuesday before we can Deck our Classroom for the festive season.
Christmas Hamper Drive - Division 1 had a good start today with one student bringing in a bag of items. Let's fill up our box as best we can. We only have one week to do so.
