One of the blessings that come from our schools housing students at different divisional levels, is that the older ones love to get paired up with the younger ones (and visa versa)! One of the teachers from Grade 7 approached me and asked if some of her students could be 'buddied' up with mine.
Sadly this won't be able to happen all that often, but judging by the happy smiling faces today, whenever they get together, I think all will be enjoying the experience!
The older ones were helping the younger ones with a logical puzzle activity called "Who Wore What?" Using the clues and a graphic organizer, the students are to find out which children wore which costume. It takes a bit of thinking but they are on their way to figuring it out.
Thanks to all the parents who are going to be helping us (Gr. 1, 2, and 3) out with our games and activities in the afternoon and to those who volunteered to bring spooky (but healthy) snacks. It should be a wonderful day, but remember we've had snow so please ensure that your child can still play outside at recess time, even in their costume. See you then!
