We're currently working on a special unit in the library with Ms. Borden about Fairytales. We are focusing on retelling and re-imagining well known stories using all kinds of neat STEM resources. Today we used a fantastic coding app called Scratch Jr. on the iPads to create and animate our own storyboards - and even record our voices! Students really enjoyed having the opportunity to experiment with coding and storytelling and I was so impressed with what wonderful and respectful listeners they were! On Monday, we will be retelling the "3 Little Pigs" and trying to recreate the three different houses with various building materials!
In the meantime, take a look at some photos from today's session:
- Fluvarium field trip permission slips and money ($10) is due tomorrow (May 25th)
- Students are invited to wear their PJs to school tomorrow as a reward for working so hard and doing such a wonderful job at the Kindergarten Concert. A well-deserved treat! They may also bring a stuffy (not too big!) and a special snack for the afternoon.
- Our Sports Day is scheduled for June 1st. As this is weather-dependent, our back-up day is set for June 4th.
That's all for now! Thanks for your continued support!
