It was a wet start to the day but all the students gladly headed outside to run a couple of laps to honour Terry Fox. Our run was a bit later this year than the actual run but it is never to late to draw attention to the devasting effects of cancer.
Our little buddies taught as some card games today practising so very important math skills. What a great activity to do on a rainy Saturday or Sunday.
Important - Individual Photos to be taken on Monday.
1) LA - write a letter to Mrs. Middleton focusing on connections you are making with the feelings and experiences of the character(s) within the novel you are currently reading.
