Book making and the end of term
The books all were finished more or less on time and we were able to share them with the grade one reading buddies Thursday afternoon.
The Polar Express, when the boy only wants a bell from Santa's sleigh as a gift.
We had a party Friday but between recess and lunch as we had a holiday assembly in the afternoon. We had Secret Santa ( and everyone brought their gifts and all seemed happy-they didn't have to participate if they didn't want to do so), they brought food and drink, listened to Christmas music, etc., and everything was cleaned up by lunchtime. Yeah!!!
Students Council had a successful food drive, my class brought in the third highest amount with 187 items (no party unless they had 100 items, always an incentive). Our class diligently sold Paperblank journals for the last couple of weeks and raised almost 400 dollars for the Nepal Library Foundation. They were also thrilled to get old leftover day planners and journals as an unexpected reward.
They have also been excellent Hall Monitors and Peer Helpers. Kids feel good when they see themselves making a difference.
