Today was our crazy music/gym schedule. In Music, Ms. Watkins' group watched a clip of a song called "Riding the River Train", afterwards we had to sing along with them. While Ms. Watkins' group was in music, Mrs. Stanford's class explored Black Holes. Did you know that the biggest black hole is called Sagittarius A. It is known as a Supermassive Black Hole! We then asked some really interesting questions (Mrs. Stanford has some homework to do tonight). One question that came up was: Could you be in a black hole and not even know it?
In gym we all learned a new game called, the Triangle Game. Three people hold hands to make a triangle, one person who is not in the triangle then chooses a person in the triangle and tries to catch them. It is the triangle's job to block the tagger from catching the person. It was tricky, but lots of fun.
After recess we solved a math question based on Mrs. Tipper's hens! We had to figure out how many eggs are laid in one month if each hen lays one egg a day (there are 5 hens).
After lunch we finished off some art that we started on Friday to go with our "found poems". We also met another explorer - Amelia Earhart. Ask me two cool facts that I learned about Earhart today. What makes her an explorer? How is she similar to Jacques Cartier?
Here is a message from the school:
On Thursday September 29, 2016 at 9:30am Evergreen students will be participating in the Terry Fox Run around our community. Afternoon kindergarten students with their parents are also invited to join us to run at this time. In order to make sure our run is as safe and successful as possible, we will need as many as 75 parent volunteers. Parents have the choice to stand at checkpoints along the route and cheer on the runners, prepare healthy snacks for runners at the end of the run, or walk and run with the children. If you are able to come and help us with the run from about 9:00 AM until approximately 11:00 AM, please go to: https://goo.gl/forms/Es5jGjnEd4WfcZzG2 to sign up as a volunteer. Parent volunteers must have a current volunteer clearance to volunteer at this event. In addition, our student voice group has set our school fundraising goal to $5000 to raise money for cancer research. We will be collecting donations at the front office from September 19th - 29th. Please make all cheques payable to the Terry Fox Foundation. You can find more detailed information about our Terry Fox run on our school newsletter.
Have a great evening!
