February was a very busy month for us! We celebrated the 100th Day of School, Fred’s Retirement, Valentine’s Day, and Cashton’s birthday! Our learning focused on hibernation. We looked at animals in Alberta that hibernate focusing on bears, bats, groundhogs, and squirrels. Through this lens, our real learning was focused on the sequence of events involved with hibernation and the different habitats for hibernation. We also enjoyed reading the Brady Brady Collection of Hockey Stories and a variety of fiction and non fiction books about hibernation. In March, we will turn our focus to Life on the Farm. We will explore the living and non living things important to farming and what different animals and crops provide us with in order to answer the question: “Why are farms important for people all around the world?”
Happy New Year everyone! The month of January is a nice month to start anew and to re-establish routines. In our class we will be learning about polar animals in science, exploring color in art, and finding out more about the history of the Indigenous people of Alberta in our Indigenous Studies class. In math, we will continue our learning about quantity, size, shape, and patterns. As we learn, explore, and discover, we are always using the lens of communication. Students in our class are working on developing more robust expressive communication tools they can access and rely upon in all parts of their daily life.
