April Fools

What do you do on April Fool’s Day? Why not visit the third grade at Elgin Public and St. Boniface schools. That is exactly what we did. We read the story, Arthurs April Fool, by Marc Brown. The story is about Arthur who worries about remembering his magic tricks for the April Fool’s Day assembly and Binky’s threats to pulverize him. The story was followed by several April Fool’s Day activities. When all activities were complete, they received a key to unlock a container which held special April Fool’s Day treats. The kids were surprised to see “brown E’s” in their container. April Fools!

Hippo’s Tooth Surprise

We had the opportunity to visit the second grade class at St. Boniface and Elgin Public in the month of February. Because February is Dental Health Month, we read the story Hippo’s Tooth Surprise by Marjorie Dennis Murray. This book tells of a hippo having a tooth ache and how the tooth comes out. After reading the book, they made either a dental health tooth girl or boy. Toothbrushes were given to the students. They were donated by Kersenbrock Family Dental of O’Neill. Below is a picture of the second grade class from Elgin Public School.
