Thankful today for a good night's rest the night before! Today we tackled our Remembrance Day activities. The pamphlets we got from the library were fantastic. The kids did word searches, made a memory card game and did mazes and dot to dot pictures. We read some fantastic stories from the books What We Remember and Great Canadian War Heroes. We listened to the Last Post and watched a Heritage Minute about John McCrae and recited In Flanders Fields together. We also went down a little rabbit trail and learned quite a bit about the Halifax Explosion. Nate remembered seeing that Heritage Minute and wanted to know more about it.
We also had piano lessons, curling lessons and step dance lessons today. I think it may be time to make a hot chocolate and curl up on the couch with my book.
