Krista's Class

December 2021

Our students enjoyed playing pretend and dress up. Favourite stories were "Snappy's Halloween", a book that's now missing several of it's pop-out pictures, "When the Leaf Blew In" which always got some laughs, and "The Old Woman Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything". We learned that most of our students are really engaged by Indigenous music and love drumming, dancing, and singing with it. Everyone liked our animated skeleton and acting out "Dem Bones". Students have gained skills like risk taking and trying out new activities. Expanding their expressive communication and gross motor abilities are ways a lot of our students grew last few months. We have also welcomed Laura Armstrong to our class. She is a practicum teacher who will likely be able to be a substitute teacher starting this May. Laura is enthusiastic, compassionate, intelligent, and dedicated to students with special unique potentials. She is an amazing asset to our team. We are enjoying the mild winter days and exploring fun activities.
