Wednesday, September 28

The students started the day in French class. When they returned to class our buddy class came to hear the story Shin Chi’s Canoe which is a follow up story to Shi Shi Etko that we heard yesterday. In today’s story her little brother is now making the trip to the residential school for the first time. A brief, but good discussion followed the story. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, I explained the need to do a different math assessment. Students then set about working on the assessment. Some need more time and will be given it on Monday. We then launched into our first potluck. We had a few hiccups like not being able to get he music to work but all in all there was a lot of eating and talking. I don’t think there was anyone that went away hungry. It was a nice way to build community at the start of  the year. We then watched a lot of the CBC documentary entitled Newfoundland at Armageddon. It is an excellent production that uses relatives of the original Newfoundland Regiment to recreate what life was like for the soldiers.
