Spring Break Surprises!

Look what we came back from Spring Break to...

Daffodils (that we planted from bulbs)

And ..... SALMON FRY (that we have raised from eggs)!

Exciting times indeed in Division 17!

Musical Instruments

For our last home learning project before Spring Break we were required to create a musical instrument.  Ms. Lirenman was blown away by the effort we put into making our musical instruments.  Here is a small sample of some of the instruments we made.  Have you ever tried to make a musical instrument?


Potato Update

Over the two week spring break our potatoes grew a lot.  Now that we are back in school we need to "hill" around the stems to make sure they have support and we have to ensure the soil is moist. Here are a couple of photos of us tending to our potato plants.

Potato Planting

This week our class and Mrs. Heacock's class worked together to plant potatoes.  We are quite curious as to how long they will take to grow and how many potatoes we may get.  Ms. Lirenman was telling us that last year her class harvested over 200 potatoes.  Do you have a prediction on how many we may harvest this year?

Caine's Arcade

This week we were inspired by Caine and the arcade games that he created out of cardboard.  For home learning, we created our own games and shared them with our classmates and friends.  Here are some photos of our arcade games.

Documenting Daffodils

Last week we spent some time looking at and documenting the daffodils that we planted in front of the school.  What changes do you see? What are you wondering?

Pink Shirt Day

This week we celebrate Pink Shirt Day. Not sure what Pink Shirt Day is all about? Check out this video.

We started our morning with an assembly to learn more about the story of Pink Shirt Day.  In the middle of the assembly, there was a flash mob put on by four of the classes. They did a really great job and when they were finished the whole school was invited to join in.

Notice all the pink!!

Here are some of the videos we watched too.

Did you take part in Pink Shirt Day too?
