What Are We Learning?
Go Flames Go! Our student community engaged in cheering on our favourite team, the Calgary Flames, during the Stanley Cup playoffs. One of our fabulous teachers, Pam, organized our own mini Red Mile with fun activities including a photo booth where students explored Flames and hockey themed props. Unfortunately, our team didn't win but what the Calgary Flames lost in points, our school community made up for with team spirit!
Darcy's students have been learning about polar animals through research and poster presentations. The students did an amazing job presenting their learning to us. Inglewood Bird Sanctuary also visited the classroom to teach students how insects survive the winter months in Calgary. In March, we will be focusing on the earth and how we can look after all of the planet's living things.
Students in Colleen and Erin/Maya's classroom have been continuing their work on building their core vocabulary words. Words such as 'like, go, not, finished" were the focus of February. Building core vocabulary is an important part of everyday communication.
Learning About Dinosaurs
Students in Thea's class worked really hard on learning about dinosaurs. They pretended to be paleontologists, uncovered dinosaurs in sand, made their own fossils and did some chart writing about dinosaurs. We completed our learning by doing an individual research project about a dinosaur of their choosing. One of their favorite things was listening to a dinosaur counting song where the dinosaurs did gymnastics! Students created paintings with their own versions of dinosaurs using hands, fingers and feet!
