Two weeks ago, I was very ill and wasn't able to work. The student were lovely and made this lovely sign and the Teacher On Call sent it to me. It definitely filled my bucket.
We learned about Valentine's words and we did Valentine writing centers to get us ready for this past week.
We started learning about our community and what is around us.
Grade 1's did this Polar Bear Art project one week and then they helped a Kindergarten student by helping them do the art project too! They look fantatic :)
This past week was another busy week.
We practiced putting things in alphabetical order starting with the names of each student in the class. This was followed up by putting Valentine words in that same order.
One of our writing centers where students had to use scrabble letters to make the word. Grade 1 had to add up all the numbers on each piece of the scrabble pieces.
We have learned about syllables and this is a sheet they had to do on their own putting the Valentine words into groups.
Our funky person/hair art.P
Part of our community building started with a practice with all the materials they could find in the classroom. After the class looked at some 3D maps of Squamish, we wrote up a list of things/buildings that we find in our community. Here are 2 students making the electrical lines.
Some students built our school.

The amazing artwork were lucky to see from the tower. It took 2 solid weeks working at night to put this piece of art together with natural resources from the environment.
The students were stunned and loved it!
