Our class will be having some owl visitors next month (February 17) from the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre. They have a list of donation items they need on an ongoing basis. I was hoping that our class could collect one of these items to give to the visitors when they come out to our school. The item I was thinking about is canned, wet cat food. If you and your child would like to donate a can to this project, please send a can of wet cat food to school before their visit (Feb. 17). I am guessing that rehabilitating owls eat cat food (Who knew?). Thanks for your help.
JANUARY CHAPEL THEME
The backpack item for this month's chapel is a cellphone (prayer). We talked about prayer and how we can call on Jesus when we need help. Our class made a large version of The Lord's Prayer, one word at a time, which is the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples. It is hanging up in the chapel area.
READING GROUP - SKIT
One of our reading groups put on a short skit for our class and the Grade 5/6 reading buddies last Wednesday. It was "The Three Little Pigs" and they did an excellent job. BRAVO!
We had our Lego Party on Friday. It was lots of fun and I learned a lot about giving a LEGO Party. (You definitely need to schedule more than one hour.) We started off with a short Lego video for inspiration. Then everyone designed and built their own creations. We took a short walk around the classroom to look at everyone's designs and I took pictures. Next week we will be doing a "Show and Tell" about these creations. I think most of the Lego pieces got back to their proper homes. We also had some Lego-ish snacks. All in all, I think our first earned class party was a success.
