Thanksgiving, already?

Last week was a quick one and filled with important learning about Truth and Reconciliation/Orange Shirt day and Terry Fox. Parents, you should know that you beat out Superman and Terry Fox in the class survey of ‘Who is your hero?’!

September flew by and already we’re preparing for the week before Thanksgiving. It’s a time for our class to reflect on all the healthy food that comes from the land along with other things to be thankful for. For me, healthy eating has always been┬ásynonymous with family time in the garden, orchard, kitchen and around the dining table. For other families, it might include fishing and hunting or tending the farm animals. We will share our “I am thankful for…” stories. In math, we’ve begun practicing A/B patterns. We’ll continue our learning by looking for patterns and making patterns in nature.

The week ahead at a glance: Oct. 4-8

  • Monday, Tuesday – at the park – learning about safety
  • Wednesday – at the school. Return mailbags for notices. Healthy eating.
  • Thursday – at the school. Library book exchange – yes it’s finally time to send the book back in the bag!
  • Friday – at the park. Patterns with leaves.

    Happy Thanksgiving long weekend!
