Things are going really well in our classroom.

In January, we have been learning about nature in winter. For an Art project “Who loves winter”, we explored with liquids and mixing colors. By using different art techniques, the students demonstrated good imitation skills and painted animals that enjoy cold weather.

In Food studies and vocational activities, our boys and girls are making progress in terms of increased independence and cooperation with others.

In Science, we have started sprouting seeds such as broccoli and lentil. Every day, the class checks for changes in a special glass jar where we do the sprouting experiment. We will share our photo documentation in the next newsletter.

Dec. 2018

The holiday season is here!

Our group of students continue working on regular programming and their individual goals.

In December, we learned about nature and animal behavior, especially hibernation.

By using different art techniques, we have been working on several projects connected to the winter unit plan and Indigenous studies. All of the students were engaged and did a great job on the Northern Lights project, done by pull string art technique. All the pictures came out eye catching and colorful.

In Food studies and vocational tasks, our students improved their waiting skills and their understanding of turn taking. They also increased independence and cooperation with others during the use of visual recipes and operating small kitchen appliances.

At the end of the day, our class likes to gather and talk about the happenings during the day. This is a good time to review a day and give each other compliments, praise and encouragement. It is also an opportunity for social skills and expressive communication with a support of Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), such as PODD or Novachat.

Wishing you all things bright and beautiful.
