Today we had the water play table out. We brought out some babies for them to use. They really enjoyed giving them a good bath. 😊
This afternoon we had our Terry Fox assembly. Students learned about Terry’s life and heard about the Beverly Central Terry Fox run that will take place next week on Wednesday Sept. 27th.
Ben made a tower that was taller than our table when we counted it we discovered it was 69 LEGO blocks high.
Thank you Rowan for sharing your dinosaur books with us today. We had a great discussion while we read ‘How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad?’ We discussed strategies to use when we get mad eg. taking a deep breath or counting to 10.
Miss Merritt was back at Beverly Central today. She read the book The Very Noisy Night and asked students about syllables and the beginning sounds of words.
Students sorted dinosaurs by the way that they walked. They made two piles, one for dinosaurs that walked on two legs and another pile for dinosaurs that walked on four legs.
Ben and Jack brought in their dinosaur Find It game. Ben enjoyed showing it to his friends and giving them turns to see what they could find.
If your child has any dinosaur books or toys that you are comfortable with them bringing to school please feel free to send them in.
Our class book is coming along nicely.

Today we had our first surprise fire drill. Students did a great job of doing everything that we practiced last week during our guided fire drill. We lined up and walked out to the front of the school. Students were reminded not to cover their ears just in case they needed to be given instructions in an emergency.
When we returned from outside Jack A, Rowan and Jack B were talking about what can cause fires. Jack A said that BBQs can cause fires. Rowan shared that when they go camping they use water to put out their fires.
