An assembly started our day today. It was the first assembly of the year and there were a lot of reminders. We also watched a brief video about Terry Fox. We are Terry Fox. When we returned to class we had our first appreciation circle of the year. Keep that basket full! The students did a sheet to see if they could follow instructions. Hmm, I think we have some work to do. Today we started our read aloud Pax. Pax is an award nominated book and is being used this year for Global Read Aloud. After recess, we had our first buddy class. The Thank -you Story from Elephant and Piggie was shared and then we looked at what makes a good buddy before the kids had some time to read with their buddies. After lunch, I read the story Fireboat which is the true story of the John J. Harvey fireboat and its use during the horrific events of September 11, 2001. We ended the day discussing mottos and students were asked to think about if they had their own personal motto, what would it be? We then headed out for the final playground practice of this school year. Have a great weekend!
