Mar./Apr. 2019

As the school year continues to progress, our classroom has built on the strong foundation of routines and independence that was established during the first part of the year. Our students continue to build confidence in their morning academic routines, while adding more responsibility as new skills are mastered. These routines consist of name recognition, spelling, printing skills, picture matching and sorting activities based around developing a continued understanding of community safety, as well as specific activities based around individual IPP goals. Through targeted Smart Board lessons, as well as hands-on tactile activities, students are beginning to develop skills around the fundamentals of grocery shopping. Students are given a grocery list and are responsible for finding the pictures of the items on the Smart Board, then finding the actual item on a table and bagging it as if in a grocery store. We have shifted a greater attention to developing math skills and growing student understanding of number sense through activities during our morning routine. Students continue to enjoy weekly art and food studies activities, as well as socializing through a number of structured and unstructured activities.”

We have had a great start to the school year this year, and have developed strong routines and independence in the classroom. Our students have been working hard on developing literacy skills through identifying main events in stories and sequencing them appropriately. Project-Core has been a major part of our classroom communication, and focus words for the beginning of the year have been “Go”, “Want”, “Turn”, and “More”. Our classroom students have been role models throughout the school in developing their vocational skills through participation in activities such as snow removal, office skills, laundry sorting, and general school cleaning. We have experimented with a variety of media in our art lessons, and have created meaning full artwork using natural resources from outside. Our classroom has had the opportunity to work with a Community Rehab student from the University of Calgary during the first half of this year to develop skills in community safety through the recognition of a variety of “Stop” signs and “Go” signs. It has been a great start to the year, and we are looking forward to continue where we have left off in the New Year.
