*I’ve learned a bit about Healthy Hunger!

Here is the message from Crystal, one of our SCC members:

If parents go to healthyhunger.ca and set up an account, they can see the schedule for the entire year.  The schedule each month will typically include two hot lunches and a booster juice day.  

 

This flyer might be helpful for parents — https://www.facebook.com/PlainsviewSCC/photos/a.352159895243828/528530337606782/?type=3&theater

 

We will pull together an info package with the registration flyer and  a list of the lunches scheduled for the year and get that out to teachers shortly.

Today we talked about “home.” We had a talking circle and each student needed to share at least one thing with me about their homes, their family/pets, or their neighbourhood.  I gave them lots of time to think, and there were a lot of ideas being thrown around. I did tell them that this was something they needed to be able to do in grade 2; share some information on a topic that I give them.  I will be inputting these marks into Gradebook under Social and L.A.

Quiet Time/Twitter- We read Mrs. Maley’s Africa trip book today. The students were really interested in my pictures and some of the cultural pieces behind my trip. We talked a bit about race as all of the Africans in the picture were black. We also talked about rich/poor as one of the pictures in the book was me visiting a school there. The walls and roofs were made of tin, and it sparked some great conversation. We talked about how we would never judge someone based on race or how much money they had. We talked about all of the positives I learned from being in a different country and the great things I learned from being in a different culture than my own.
