The Harvested Potatoes!!

Mrs. Mann just sent me photos of the harvested potatoes to share with you. Check out  the large ones and all the different sizes of potatoes. There are some teeny tiny ones.

National Indigenous Day

Trudy’s Rock Story” (by Trudy Spiller)

When a young girl from the Gitxsan Nation argues with her brother. Instead of lashing out, she goes for a walk in search of a special rock. She diverts her negative energy into the rock.  This engaging First Nation’s story teaches children that it is okay to have feelings and shows them how to process and release the negative thoughts or feelings.

Div. 10 students hunted for that special rock to take home and trust in forever.

They decorated the rocks with designs and/or writing to make them extra special.

Caleb’s Special Rock


The Stone Thrower (by Jael Ealey Richardson), is a little girl’s memoir.

The author addresses issues of race and segregation. This book teaches us that with focus, determination, perseverance, and reliance we can all overcome the challenges that are presented to us in life.

Div. 10 students created responses to the story through writing and making posters.
