Inuit Days

All four Grade 2 Classes have been studying Iqaluit, Nunavut. At the end of the Unit they have an Inuit Day. The teachers did an amazing job. The had so many different stations set up for the kids to participate in. The gym was filled with activities, spear throwing, this kick thing that Emily was so excited about, a story tent, I could go on and on. They also had stations set up in the classes, the kids made toques, and Inukshuks, they made polar bear cookies. It was so much fun to help out.

Here are a few pics and a video of Emily doing this button zipper game.

Julia's Christmas Concert

So you'll notice Julia starts out with a bit of Gusto, but it kind of tapers towards the end. You'll see. Her Cousin Ryder (on the right), did an awesome job. Full Gusto till the end. (by the way, it's not the whole concert, just the highlights.) Enjoy!

Juila's Birthday Party

If anyone knows Julia, you know that at anytime, anytime you may catch this girl in her swimming suit. So it was perfect for her to have a Luau Party.

Especially since her birthday is on Christmas Day. She asked for a Rudolph-the-Red-Nosed Reindeer Cake. Had fun making that!

When the girls got there we made flowers for their hair. Then Emily led the girls in Hula Lessons.

Followed by some coconut bowling and the limbo.

I made Strawberry Daiquiri's for the girls and topped them off with umbrellas. Julia is a pro.

We really enjoyed her Christmas Concert. All of the kids did really well. They had handbells, gr3-5 choir, and they did a nativity. It was really nice. We are so thankful for all the work our teachers and staff do at that school.
