This Friday marks the last time we will get together with our playschool buddies. The tradition is to walk over to the playschool for crafts and snacks at their school! We will leave here in the afternoon after the 1:00 bell and walk over. The weather forecast is for RAIN, RAIN, RAIN! So students need to be dressed warmly and appropriately for what is sure to be a wet walk. Umbrellas, rain coats and boots. I will need 2 parent helpers to walk over with the students. Please send a note in your child’s agenda if you can walk with us.

Today we had fun with Mr. Woytuck! He popped by to talk to us about how to notice details in pictures. First he started with a video to help us get focused.
What did you think about the video?
Then Mr. Woytuck showed us a great strategy to use when we look for details in pictures. It is called 4 square and by covering up 3 corners of a picture it can, as Mark told the class, “push our brain to focus.” I was really impressed with all the details the kids came up with as well as their ability to make comparisons between the two pictures. We’ll be using this new strategy a lot as we look at old pictures of Banff to determine what life must have been like in the past.

1. Do you live in Canada? (answer- No)
2. Do you live in the United States? (answer- Yes) The kids were a little excited…
3. Do you on the east coast? (answer- Yes) The kids were more excited…
4. Then Abe who was looking at some of the place names with big black letters told the skypers to ask… “Do you live in New York? ( answer- YESSSSSSSS) The kids went wild!
We helped the other class a little bit as they didn’t know too much about Canada. What really got the kids excited here was the fact that the school we were skyping was an all girl’s school. We had a great discussion on whether or not kids here would like to be in an all boy’s or all girl’s school. Some kids said yes and others said they liked the mix. It was a great morning!

As part of the Children’s Festival being held at the Banff Centre this weekend, BES is lucky enough to have some of the performers come to our school to entertain the kids. The grade 2′s were treated to a Hula Hoop presentation put on by a young lady named “Sapphire.” Then we all took a turn spinning our own hoops. It was AWESOME! Do consider checking out the Children’s Festival this weekend!
