Darcy's Class

March 2022

I cannot believe it is March already! Our classroom has been busy, busy, busy! Those short weeks always feel so packed. We have recently finished reading The Fantastic Mr. Fox and are moving on this week to a novel study of Charlotte’s Web. This story is always so much fun to teach as we learn about characters, setting, and plot. We will also continue or learning about the Seven Sacred Teachings in our Indigenous Studies. We have completed our study of the “First 40” CORE words and will go back to review a number of those words before we continue with the “Next 40” in order to enhance our writing and expressive communication practice. Have a great spring break!

December 2021

What a fun and busy fall we have had in Room 11! In October, our students were busy carving pumpkins and learning about shapes, as well as counting the seeds in groups of tens. Halloween dress up was great fun as we all had the chance to show off our costumes. We also had the opportunity to do some learning through baking.  Pizza was a big hit, but the Thundercake took the…..well cake!!! In November, students recognized Remembrance Day through stories and creating a poppy wreath for our school ceremony. All of us were so happy to welcome back Muhammad to the classroom and it has been great getting to know him. Our learning adventure continues throughout December. We wish everyone a happy and enjoyable winter break!
