welcomed our guest Steve, who works at Save-on-Meats. He shared parts of his life story which included being homeless and sleeping under the Georgia Straight bridge for a period of six years. His mother was sent to a residential school when he was just a baby and he was fostered by 18 different families over the years. He currently works at Save-on-meats and is always helping others in need. It was a wonderful opportunity to hear first hand the repercussions of residential school over generations as well as the different facets of being homeless. We made him a lovely thank you card that he appreciated very much.

finished reading the legend '' La légende du corbeau'' in French.

We also continued to write our stories in French. We also individually read the text ''Des grillons bien croquants'' and answered some comprehension questions. We went over the correct answers as a whole to review useful strategies while reading informational texts. We also practiced conjugating the verb ''savoir'' this week.
