We are excited to be going into the Holiday season! The children seem to feel the excitement in the air. We have fun units planned for this month! We are learning many things about Christmas, including what is the difference between I want and I need, how people celebrate christmas around the world, and what is this season is all about.
It was nice to be able to talk to many parents during the interview night. I’m truly blessed have such a great group of children and families! I hope this season you have the gift of time to spend with family and friends and make traditions that your children can carry on.
Time flies when you are learning about interesting things. This month was a blink for sure.
We have just wrapped up our North America unit. We were learning about deer family,(elk, moose, caribou, reindeer) wild dogs,(fox, arctic fox, wolf,coyote), and bears.Have you heard about Kermode bears?
We received our first loan kit from Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
Loan kits are packages containing specimens, books, activities and other materials
designed to be used in the classroom. We studied First Nation people and their tools.
We continue our journey to South America to explore the rainforest,
and the animals living in different layers there.
I’m looking forward to see you all at parent meeting!
It’s that time of year again!
Fall…..the busiest time of the school year for sure.
Our first week of school was a great success! The children have done a great job of adjusting to our daily routine. We will continue to review classroom rules and procedures in the next couple of weeks. My goal is to help your child be an independent, lifelong learner. I would like to develop and maintain an “I can” and “I will try” attitude. This positive attitude promotes success and happiness.
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Crush.Crush is a red eared slider turtle. The children are fascinated by turtles and love to watch him swim. We are learning about the difference between aquatic turtles and tortoises.
This month our focus is on our planet (land, water, air) and how we share it with animals (5 animal kingdom).
I look forward to working with all our students and having a successful, happy, enjoyable school year!
I’m so excited to see all your smiling faces!
