We all played a role in recognizing Veterans this Week of Remembrance. Some students collected Poppy Fund donations, others sang in the choir, some of us prepared music sheets, our 8 student council candidates hosted the school assembly, and all of us performed a moving rendition of Dr. John McCrae’s poem “In Flanders Fields” set to music by Canadian composer Alexander Tilley. Thank you to volunteer & music educator Mrs. Janice Courtemanche for accompanying us. Lest We Forget.
LITERACY – Media Literacy (Elections presentations = how to vote + our candidates)
Student Council Candidates continued working to finish their first posters with our student teacher Miss Colmer. Second posters will be easier once these are done 🙂

Our whole-group collaboration & learning:
MATH – Place Value
Working collaboratively on expanded form
We learning that we can also talk about & use base 3!!!!!!!! (not just base 10). Some students applied our base 10 knowledge to this new situation:
Today’s new seating plan resulted in some spontaneous fun & competition — making boats! What a fun collaboration, totally led by students. Creative!!
Extra DPA at the end of the day/week — whole Junior end capture the flag!
