Remembrance Day 2015

In honour of this important day, our kindergartens spent lots of time reading about peace and talking about the importance of remembering soldiers who fought and continue to fight for our freedom here in Canada. The students learned about the symbol of the poppy and worked collaboratively to create poppies for a class wreath. 

Loose parts available for poppies
