Our class has been learning about life in the Arctic this winter, for humans and for animals! We read this story, written by a local author and illustrated by a local artist, to learn more about polar bears. Together, we learned how to draw polar bears and illustrated our backgrounds with the Northern Lights. Next, we wrote our own endings to the story through the perspective of either Nina, the female cub, or Nikita, the male cub.
What did you learn about polar bears?

To celebrate Pink Shirt Day and promote kindness, our class brainstormed our own things we should say more often based on one of our favourite Kid President videos. Check out our video:
What do you think we should say more often and why?
Last night some students in our school traveled with their families to a town nearby to enjoy a WHL hockey game. It was a special night at the arena…Pink the Rink! Even the team had pink skate laces and pink tape on the end of their hockey sticks. This night is in support of Pink Shirt Day coming up on Wednesday, February 25.
We hope to see you at our assembly on Wednesday, February 25 at 11:00am!
REMEMBER TO WEAR PINK 🙂
It was a beautiful day today as we enjoyed the outdoors and learned about the cultural event of Carnaval de Québec that occurs every February. Due to our warm winter conditions, we modified some of our stations but still had a great time. Our high school’s grade nine French class came over to help us with stations and teach us some words in French!
We love our mascot, Bonhomme! Here is a fun song about him in French:
A big Thank-You to everyone who helped make this day a big success!
Which station was your favourite and why?
What words did you learn in French?
It is Random Acts of Kindness Week! This week has been created to show people how one simple act of kindness can spread kindness all around.
In our classroom we have:
- looked at kindness research performed all around the world
- participated in a learning sequence using the book, Each Kindness
- watched the Kindness Boomerang video
- created kindness graffiti
- developed our own kindness project
How can you show kindness?
We have had an exciting week of Show and Tell presentations! Students were asked to bring something important and special to school to show the class. Check out this collection!
Did you enjoy our week of Show and Tell? Explain why.
Once upon a time our class went to Mrs. Haggard’s kindergarten class to help them write stories about castles, dragons, and knights! The kindergartens buddied up with our grade 2’s and 3’s and told them a story…
We aren’t quite finished yet, but here are some samples:
