Different paper products used created unique qualities of texture and colour. Besides using scrap photocopied paper, we reused construction and tissue paper, egg cartons, and paper grass from Easter.

Also on this special day was the opportunity to meet with the many authors, chat with them a bit and get their autographs. We also attended two informative sessions given by two of the authors.
As you can see in the photos, the children were having fun while being encouraged in their reading efforts.
Olivet is most grateful to Margaret and Dave Starkey for their kind donation to our field trip fund which makes school trips like this one possible. Their thoughtfulness is most appreciated.

Our Wednesday Word Wall bulletin board is covered with the children's ideas of how they would incorporate the 3 R's at home and school. This provided an opportunity for parents and students having a conservation talk about the 3 R's at home.
Students have been busy reusing recycled products. Fun stamping with toilet and paper towel rolls on cereal packaging to building a variety of creations with items we would place in our recycling bins.
Castles, boats, factories, animals; we all used our imaginations and saw different things created by our friends. What do you see?
