Wonder

Our first read aloud will be “Wonder” by Raquel J. Palacio.  We will be participating in the SCDSB Read Aloud Program.  We will be connecting with other classes in Simcoe County  to discuss our thoughts about his book.  Looking forward to reading together.

Orange Shirt Day Sept 22/2017

Today our class began learning about why Orange Shirt Day is important.  We read “When We Were Alone” and started talking about the legacy of Indian Residential Schools for First Nation, Metis, and Inuit people.  We then connected the 7 Grandfather Teachings to our learning.  Each student wrote the teaching they connected with most from our discussions.  The majority of the students picked “Truth.”
