Author David Bouchard Visit to WD Learning Commons, Oct. 8

Students, staff and parents from West Dover enjoyed a visit from the Order of Canadal Award winning Metis author David Bouchard. David worked with two groups of students, the grade 1 and 2 team as well as the grade 3 and 4's. In the session with the grade 1 and 2 students David read a few pages from his book Rainbow Raven and then provided students with ideas they could use in crafting their own stories of life on the Prairies. With the grade 3 and 4 students David played his different flutes and shared poems from his books. This helped the students make connections with their own life stories and making their own poems as part of their Madela Projects. David's strong message of start reading and becoming a reader was well recieved by all. Special thanks goes out to the WD School Association who provided the funding to bring David in, the parents who helped set up and take down the furniture in the learning commons, our awesome Library Assistant Mrs. K and all the grade 1,23 and 4 teachers.
