Community Walk to Ottawa Dentist Office

Sharing Circle

Sharing time is special part of the day. It is so great to see that many of our JK's are signing up and participating in sharing their work.  Students share songs, costumes, pictures, paintings, creations, musical instruments, and the list is endless.  The audience will have an opportunity to ask one question to each friend sharing their work.  Sharing time is an excellent opportunity for students to build their confidence and improve their oral language skills.
