We also learned about poppies.
We had many discussions and shared our thoughts and feelings about Remembrance Day.
Here are a few of the things we learned and some of our thoughts about Remembrance Day:
Ellie - "We love soldiers because they protect us."
Nathan - "Soldiers help our country."
Kendall - "At our school we don't fight, we play nice."
Josh - "Soldiers died for us. That's why we wear a poppy."
Holly - "Poppies grew in the fields where the soldiers died."
Carter (4) - "For the Remembrance Day ceremony, we got to wear a poppy."
We did some French writing about Remembrance Day.
Using sponges and poppy seeds, we made poppy Art.
We worked as a team to make a Remembrance Day wreath for the ceremony in the Gym.
We also discussed and wrote about how we can be good citizens at school.
