Diana's Class

November & December 2022

September and October have been busy and fun! We enjoyed a few walks to the inclusive playground at Sandy Beach while the weather was still warm, talked about Orange Shirt Day and participated regularly in drumming after lunch. We also enjoyed reading stories together using voice-output switches for students to participate and say parts of the story. Students are using the Go Talk app to make choices and comments. When asked what we are all thankful for, many students expressed "music therapy" and "friends". We learned that the month of October in Cree is called pinâskowipisim (pin-ask-oh-wee-pee-sim), which means "leaves falling moon". November is Iyikopiwipîsim (ee-oh-gee-pee-wee-pee-sim), which means “frost moon”. For our numeracy, we drew a class monster by having the kids tell the adults what to draw, picking from shapes and numbers! It was very funny!

We will be starting a daily question at circle time, and in November we hope to write cards to military veterans for Remembrance Day. We are continuing our “All About Me” unit and have enjoyed the book Same, Same but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw. Families will be sent home some new homework about your house/community - stay tuned!

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR

RT @kinggeorgecbe: Le défi du flocon de neige a commencé! Comment est-ce que tous les élèves dans chaque classe vont créer un flocon de neige qui est aussi grand que Mme Shafina ou Mme Renée, en utilisant seulement le papier, les ciseaux et la laine? @CBELanguages #WeAreCBE https://t.co/F6vE6jP5td

RT @KeelerSchool: Grade 6 students created pictograph rocks using symbols and colours to communicate their connections to the land. #WeAreCBE #Keeler https://t.co/z18gyFvOZS
