Remembrance Day

We Remember!

Our school's Remembrance Day committee organized an amazing Remembrance Day Assembly on Wednesday November 5th.  The grade 3 students led the rest of the school in reciting The Salute To The Flag. I salute the Flag, the emblem of my country and to her I pledge my love and loyalty.   The students were outstanding!

Take Time To Remember
In our classroom we talked about Remembrance Day while working though a booklet published by Veteran Affairs Canada. We read and discussed a passage written about the first poppy, and discussed Lt. Col. John McCrae's Poem "In Flanders Fields". We also read and discussed the story:  A Poppy Is To Remember, by Heather Patterson and Ron Lightburn.  The students had very thoughtful questions and comments. In remembrance we also made poppies for our bulletin board.

Our Poppy bulletin board.

Our poppies were made by following several steps including:  water colour paint on coffee filters, `air brushed` black background and black paper for the stems and leaves, to finish off we glued poppy seeds in the center of the flowers.  I think they look amazing!
