November & December 2023
We have enjoyed many festivities of October! We took a walk down to Sandy Beach playground with family members, cooked a Thanksgiving feast together as a class, energized our senses making traditional Eritrean coffee with Ushria's mom, Helen, and family friend, Tsigereda. We also celebrated Take Me Outside Day with a group campfire, marshmallows and warm apple cider! All the while we have been enjoying our letter of the week activities, started a library routine, lots of swimming, gross motor and sensory activities. We love seeing the creative objects students bring for their letter homework! We are looking forward to many more festive learning opportunities in November and December and finding joy in the winter ahead!
September & October 2023
Welcome our new students to the classroom: Kainat, Hunter, and Arshia! We are also excited to have EAs Erica and Janey join us and work alongside Dione and Jo-Ann. We are missing Karen who is supporting another class this year! Welcome back our wonderful students from last year: Firas, Daniel, Barrick, Enzo, Lette, and Ushria. We started the school year getting to know each other and making new friends. In the coming weeks we will explore our names, interests, cultures, and things we like to do! It will be a full and fun year ahead!
