Big Thank You

Scholastic could not have been successful without the dedicated support of our Inman parents who worked tirelessly to make sure the book fair was successful.  Thank you for all that you do!  We had a fantastic turn out of so many families!  It was a pleasure meeting everyone. I am sure there were some surprise presents this holiday season and hopefully lots of pleasure reading. 

In addition, Mme. Chin ended up being the lucky winner for more Scholastic books from the draw.

Linking Words to the Pictures

After jotting down facts and questions about the life and purpose of the bee from our non-fiction library books, students are now going to find images representing their concept onto an Inspiration file.

The goal is to write the linking words that describe their relationship.  For example what do you notice about the linking boxes?

Below are some videos to support your learning.

  • This video explains how bees make honey but it also explains bee communication.  You will definitely want to draw some of the bee moves!

Orange Shirt Day – Phyllis’ Story

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’s account of losing her shiny new orange shirt on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.

The Lorax ~ a Banned Book

The Lorax was banned in Laytonville, California in 1989 from a local public school. The Lorax was banned because it portrays the foresting industry in an arguable negative way. Some people felt that this book was persuading children to be against logging.

There are many websites, youtube videos, and lesson plan ideas for our theme.  For starters, here is one website:  https://www.plt.org/educator-tips/the-lorax-lesson-plans to help get you going if you need a starting point.

Here is a site not specific to the Lorax movie but resources centered on environment that is worth reviewing: https://www.hctfeducation.ca/lessons-more/ (BC resource)

Everyone has the ability to make a difference. What will you choose to do?

Also check out The Lorax Project from Seussville for conservation ideas, games, and activities.

Finally, here is the original movie obtained from Youtube (25 min long).
