Barkley is a Hockey Player!

I had an exciting weekend with the Golden Bears hockey team. I got to watch 6 hockey games and the Golden Bears won!!! I also got to eat candy and it was delicious.

Barkley's St. Patrick's Day at School

I had a super St. Patrick's Day at school with my Kindergarten friends. Mrs. Caldwell gave all the boys shamrock antennas and all the girls got Princess tiaras. We wore green necklaces around our necks.

Did you notice my new t-shirt? Mrs. Caldwell brought us t-shirts from New York City. The boys got white t-shirts and the girls got pink t-shirts.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Collaborative Project with Ireland and South Africa

We have three community songs for our school and town (Oak Lake, Manitoba). The students wrote these songs with a local folksinger, Tannis Slimmon, and her friend Katherine Wheatley. The first song we are going to share with you is the Oak Lake Community Song. The chart below shows some of the nouns, adjectives, verbs, and phrases from the song.
