We have had a great week in Grade 2. From Knight Day on Wednesday, to Toonies for Terry and completing our Terry Fox Run, to all the excitement of watching all the construction going on right outside our window, it has been busy and fun. We tried different types of apples, and completed some writing using our 5 senses about apples, as well as doing some different science experiments. A full and good week.
It is hard to believe that we have finished the first month of school and are moving into October!

“I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name. When I call, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength. All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth.”
