Happy National Animal Crackers Day OES! Do you like crackers? They are usually in the shape of an animal, it would be weird if they weren’t. It is usually in a shape of a zoo or circus animal. For physical wellness today recognize how your body is feeling today. Take a moment and do a body scan. Are there areas of your body that feel sore? Tight? Strong? Relaxed? Try to understand how your body is feeling and then focus your energy on those areas that need more love and energy. Stretching your muscles will help bring energy to those areas, as well as deep breathing. When announcements are done, as a class take a couple of minutes to stretch out your muscles. Your bodies do so much work daily, give them a treat and stretch them out! Don’t forget to take those deep breaths while stretching! The grade 5 handbell club meets today. A huge shout-out to Mary in 4JB for showing kindness and acceptance to others. Thank you Mary for being so caring towards others!
