We were very intrigued when Jacob from Grade 6 came to visit today. He and his grandfather showed us his prosthetic arm and the attachments Jacob uses to do lots of different activities. I forgot to take pictures but here is the link to the site that has more information about CHAMPS (Child Amputees): http://www.waramps.ca/ways-we-help/child-amputees/ Thanks to Jacob's grandfather for also bringing freebies from the War Amps!

Gordo Gorilla had a fancy G g bag! Ask your child what else was in there. Did they remember the Groovy girl? the gold necklace? the garbage can? the ghost? the glasses? Good for them! Check out the gorilla song that taught us interesting gorilla facts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3QkwLkkgUY(link is external) We are going to learn about the word go tomorrow and watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PaKQ9dVk1U(link is external) Don't feed them too many Gummy Bears or you may need to do this dance to wear it off!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbZosS4dX3g I will also read them a few stories with a ghost - Halloween is coming!    

This site is great for learning about letters and sounds, so many of the children are eager to show off their abilities now!

The children were excellent listeners at the hospital today. The pictures will show you where we went - the physiotherapy department, the cafeteria and the emergency department. The X-ray departemtn had an emergency but we saw one of Mrs. Hendry's friend's air cast.
