What We Are Learning

  • April 2017 It seems winter wants to stay a bit longer. Please come to school prepared for the weather. The students are busy working on comic strips in writing. We have been looking at how authors and illustrators use story elements. The students are doing a great job coming up with funny and interesting comics. We will continue to write using story elements until vacation. We will use this knowledge to help us when we start a new unit on Fairytales after vacation. This unit will involve work in reading, writing, math and science. We are excited to start. Students are doing a great job staying on task and taking ownership of their learning. I look forward to all the exciting learning ...

  • January Welcome to the New Year! The students are busy developing their writing skills by using complete sentences with specific detail. We continue our work on spelling combinations through word building concepts, nouns, adjectives, and verbs. In our reading unit, we are developing our understanding of characters, traits, and how characters develop and possibly change through a story. Math has us starting our subtraction strategies. January is the time when we step up our independent learning and work through challenges. The students are doing a great job being risk-takers and challenging themselves. Keep up the great work!

  • December December has been quick so far. We are busy learning through some theme work. Students have been busy reading and writing both fiction and nonfiction.

The students are having a blast doing different readings, writing, and craft projects based on our day. We are also learning about different local organizations that work to support our communities, such as the SPCA. They have been into to visit once a month and have visited with the students about what they do and how we can help. They have brought a furry friend along and its been great!     Remember to pack winter ...
