Day 169 - Colourful Character

Only a few days left of school but we're keeping pretty busy. A big part of the last few days is spent getting ready for the Grade 6 graduation. We practice things like the grad march, singing our song, sitting and moving on stage and grad speeches. Despite fatigue and very hot temperatures, students have been fairly focused and patient. However, from the looks of 'M', one of the grad speakers, the stress might be getting to some of the students. Since we don't set up the chairs until the day of graduation, we use these little dome markers to guide the students through the gym. At the end of practice I asked the students to each pick up a marker and place it back on the stand. 'M' picked up 3 and showed me this trick that he learned at soccer practice. I guess that goes to show you that learning does happen outside the classroom.

Very cute! These last days of school must be really hard for all of you. I know my grade 7 son seems to think all the work should be over now and he still has a week to go...

And learning to put things to multiple purposes is a good strategy ;-)
