The weeks have been really busy and I am hoping that we will be in a 'normal' routine starting next week.
Our class has had such amazing experiences the past 3 weeks. This week was no exception.
We have been working on 1D, 2D and 3D shapes. Ask your child about what makes each type of shape. How do you measure it? We have also be learning to count by 2, 5 and 10's.
We have been working on writing sentences, parts of a sentence and vocabulary.
The following picture, students are doing an activity to learn how to work in a group to achieve something. In this case, they are passing along the hoola hoop from one to the other without unlocking hands. They were quite good at this!
Some good laughs were had too!
Another activity, again focusing on group work, was to use 2 fingers to balance a hoola hoop or a meter stick.
One of our new Centers. A light table with sand to create beautiful designs. Inspiration from our rangoli art we watched last week.
This is the list of the things the children wanted to show their parents on Celebration of Learning. I had to condense it! They were so excited to share their learning.
Les Grands Amis came to our class to do a collaborative art project with the Grade 6's. They created feathers to go on a peacock. I hope you saw posted on the bulletin board out in the hallway. We definitely have a lot of artists in our class. There was such a diversity of feathers that really brought our peacock to life!
We are very lucky as we have even bigger buddies that we are working with from Howe Sound Secondary School. They started Thursday this past week as they got to know their new friend and were read too!
Matthea found 'an escargot' outside and brought him into class to visit. The children were very interested in him. We might have to do a study next week about these creatures.
I did put him back outside so he could be free!
Andy Goldsworthy was Our Inspirational Art. We did this art piece in February and the children really out did themselves :)
