And That is How to Build a Scarecrow!

Fall is definitely in the air and what better way to enjoy it than to build a scarecrow! Last week the Grade 3/4 class build a scarecrow to enter into the community Harvest Festival which occurred this past Saturday. Kids (and teachers) had a great time constructing our garden friend.

Reading With Our Little Friends

Yesterday the Grade 4/5s took on the role of “big kid” for the little children in our building. They did a fabulous job with that I might add. As part of our Literacy Week celebration, we read stories to the little tots from the Best Start Hub as well as the boys and girls in both our Kindergarten classes. Some of us REALLY enjoyed hanging in the Kindergarten rooms.  🙂 A good time was had by all!

Angles, Angles, and More Angles

We’re having fun in Grade 4/5 learning all about angles. It is acute, obtuse, or a right angle?? Students enjoyed making angles and sprucing them up for a bulletin board display. And, using a protractor is not hard after all once you get the hang of it. We love playing “Guess that angle!”  Rockets for prizes! Ask a student how to play.

Just a reminder that this Friday is business as usual at GLC. In the past, we often end the school year with a PD day. That is not the case this year. Friday will be the final school day of the year for students and teachers alike! 🙂
