Mrs. Small

Mrs. Small, a teacher from Holland, came to do a presentation on cuisenaire rods with the Grades 3 & 4. The students learnt about adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with these manipulatives, as well as a beginning of fractions.

Miss Young, and Mrs. Ketsman learnt a new way to use cuisenaire rods in their classrooms!

Letterland

The Kindergartners have been working with Mrs. Clemis through Letterland! This is a wonderful program, as it introduces students to the letters of the alphabet, the letter shapes, the letter sounds, and even an introduction to making words!


Lines of Symmetry

posted Sep 22, 2017, 12:12 PM by Teri Young

The Grades 1-3 started off the year by learning about identities. They began by brain storming, and making a magazine collage of images that describe who they are in one way or another. From there, they wrote sentences describing what makes them unique. Lastly, silhouette symmetry was created to integrate more art, and even some math into our project!

This project is currently our hallway bulletin board, and it is the job of the middle years students to try and figure out who is who based on our descriptions, and our silhouette.

Happy Meditating Everyone!

After our first day getting back into meditation, it is clear to see that everyone had been missing these moments of being present in our lives. 

The kindergartners have joined us in our meditating ritual as well! On kindergarten days, we meditate for a shorter amount of time (1-2 minutes to begin), which feels quite short for the rest of us who have been meditating for longer periods of time (we are up to 7 minutes!).

The grade 1 - 3's respond to the meditation by writing words, and sentences of how they feel, what they thought, after their meditation.
The kindergartners respond to the meditation by drawing pictures of how they feel after their meditation.

We are "Sewing Machines"!

We have started the year off right, learning the new, lifelong skill of sewing!

The grade 1 - 3 students were busy using a ruler to measure a fabric of their choice, and then cut out a rectangular shape that would eventually be their new in school book bags. After the cutting, they each had to pin the sides together, and then tackle their bag on the sewing machine. This was a skill not many students had experienced, and it was a skill we will be developing over the course of the school year.

And We Are Back!
