5 Days of School Left....But Who's Counting? :)

Posted: December 16, 2010

What a fantastic week in Grade 5.  This week all groups finished presenting their dream homes.  They are on display outside our classroom if you get a chance to drop by.  Tuesday, students were treated to their Christmas dinner.  Lots of students chose to have the delicious turkey dinner prepared by our girls in the cafeteria.  Despite the surprise fire alarm during lunch, students got their bellies full!  On Wednesday, we made a giant bowl of fruit salad made and prepared by our class.  Check out our gallery to see lots of pictures of it.  My class still has that sweet citrus smell!! Today, Thursday, we left on a bus with Mrs. Sturgeon's Grade 1 class first thing this morning.  We arrived at the Miramichi Seniors Home at approx. 9:30am and set up.  By 10 am the room was full of seniors and workers.  Our students sang "Vive le vent", Mrs. Sturgeon's class sang "Do You Hear What I Hear" and together we sang "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."  After the singing, 2 Grade 1 students read a story about a gingerbread man.  Then, our students were ;paired with a senior to make a gingerbread man craft.  Both young and old had a wonderful morning. I was so proud of the way the students behaved on the bus and with the seniors.  They were helpful, patient and really seemed to enjoy themselves.  I believe we were all filled with a bit of the Christmas spirit by helping others.  On that same note, we recieved a beautiful "Thank You" card from David Wilson and his school picture.  We wish him well this month as he goes for his surgery. Merry Christmas! Mme Jen
