This week we were lucky enough to begin our special 5 Senses science unit in the library with our teacher-librarian, Ms. Borden! We will be exploring each of our 5 Senses through a variety of fun, hands-on activities. Yesterday we read a story about each sense, did a Hi-5 Dance, and practiced turning on our superpower listening ears with Jamie from Cosmic Kids Yoga Zen Den. Today we made our own life-size diagrams in groups by tracing one person's body and adding details such as our eyes, ears, mouth, hands, and nose! We've got even more in store next week! Take a look at some pictures of us learning and working in the library... and have a great weekend!
After having to postpone our walk on Friday due to heavy rain, we finally got to head outside with our clipboards and checklists. We explored the Torbay Gully Nature Reserve and observed some of the beautiful living and nonliving things in nature. Beforehand, we discussed the various items on our checklist - and which we were likely and less likely to see on our adventure. For example, we figured we probably wouldn't come across any lizards. We did, however, find lots of different coloured leaves, rocks, insects, and even some mushrooms! Everyone had a great time and we were lucky to have many parents and grandparents able to join us, which was a big help! Check out some of our pictures below:
Happy Friday everyone! This morning, we went on our very first field trip to the Fluvarium. Everyone was on their very best behaviour on the bus and as we learned about living and non-living things. Our facilitator, Tracy, was very impressed! Our class had to be divided to even out the two groups, so unfortunately I only have photos of the group I was with. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered their time to come and join us - it was a big help and we really appreciated it! It was a wonderful way to take us into the Thanksgiving long weekend. Enjoy! ☺
It's been a busy week here in K-3... and it's only Tuesday! We've been learning all about the Lettre Tt and Chiffre 2, as well as talking about autumn and Thanksgiving. It is also Fire Prevention week, so we've had our fair share of fire drills! Take a look at some of the things we've been up to below... and stay tuned for more photos of our October projects!
Last Friday we decided to get our hands a little messy and make our own applesauce in our classroom! We all worked together and shared the jobs so everyone got a turn to measure and add ingredients, stir, and taste our culinary creation! It was my first time making and trying applesauce too! Overall, I think it was a success!
