Today we used newspaper to make hats!
But before we did our fancy folding to create a paper hat, we were "word detectives" and had to circle the words that we found in the newspaper and could read!! It was amazing how many words got circled!! (try this activity at home, and you'll be amazed, too!)
A Social Justice Group of students from Sturgeon Heights Collegiate very generously donated a great big bunch of gently used books to our school. All teachers were able to choose some books to supplement classroom libraries, and each student in the school had the opportunity to choose a book to take home and keep in their own personal home library. Everyone was very excited about that!!! (after all….you have to read to become a reader!)
