It was wonderful to see everyone at our SK Open House. We hope you enjoyed all of the amazing learning the children showcased for you.
Exploring design patterns and symmetry! Great work J!
Lots of math learning happening in this activity, including the rods being sorted by colour! What other math do you see?
I am so proud of A! With minimal sounding out support she has gained so much confidence and is now attempting to write independently. The children enjoy starting the day with Log Book writing. It gives them the chance to create a poem, song, story, or write about a personal experience. There is so much demand to share their work with their peers!
Quite a lot of excitement today observing our new friends! The children's interest in how garbage hurts animals has lead them down the path to investigating composting! Thanks to O's mom for letting us take care of these Red Wiggler worms for a few weeks!
The children are starting to explore and investigate the different ways to make five and ten. Shake and spill, five and ten frames, and wooden numbers were placed to support their learning.
A tall and stable bed indeed! Scruffy seems to like it! The children are enjoying this building and measuring challenge. They learned they need to use the same material to measure and compare between structures.
I hope everyone continues to have a great Valentine's Day! The children exchanged their secret Valentine's Day cards, created art, and started an amazing collaborative art piece!
The latest challenge to explore problem solving and innovation involved building the tallest and most sturdiest bed for Scruffy the dog, our mascot from the Toronto Humane Society! Love the collaboration along the children in building and testing their structures.
