Stephanie F's Class

June 2021

Hello June!  Well, here we are again, another amazing year will soon be coming to an end here at Emily Follensbee School.  We enjoyed making rice krispie chick treats which were so much fun to make! Each year, my hard-working students and dedicated classroom staff always impress me.  It has been such a pleasure to have been given the opportunity to support all my students and create and continue to build relationships with parents.  Looking forward to taking advantage of some outdoor learning opportunities with the beautiful weather ahead.  Thank you everyone and have an amazing summer!

May is here! We are taking advantage of the beautiful weather lately and have been reading books outside, going for community walks, and exploring Cliffside.  Students are enjoying new spring animal sounds, feeling the wind and sun on their faces and of course the unique noises from construction!  We are very impressed with how especially attentive and responsive everyone has been during our outdoor experiences. 

It is great to see students opening their eyes, looking around, independently holding their heads upright for extended periods of time, smiling, vocalizing, and of course laughing.  Looking forward to having more of these moments in the months to come!

March 2021

March is here and with it comes warmer weather! Right?!  We are hoping nice weather will be more abundant this month and our class can participate in outdoor activities.  We want to give a big welcome to Zernish who has joined our group after time with online learning earlier this school year.  She has been doing an amazing job transitioning back to the school setting and class programs.  Some of her hard work is captured in the attached photos.  This month I will be completing practicum hours shadowing CBE vision consultants as a requirement for my Master's degree, and will be away for the first 3 weeks (returning March 22nd).  I am excited for the new learning experience however, will miss my students.  Joi and Diana will be taking over, and I am happy the students are in such wonderful hands.

Happy new year everyone! We were thinking about our students over the break and are happy to get back in the swing of things in our classroom.  We are excited about having the pool open and encourage parents to return forms if not already done so to ensure students wishing to swim can get involved. Our focus for this month is all about snow!  If parents can please send warm coats, hats, mittens, and snow pants they will certainly be used during outdoor exploration.  Thank you all!

September 2020

Welcome back!  We are so happy to see all our students back in school and eager to jump into new and familiar experiences.  A big thank you to all parents and nursing team members for making the back to school transition run so smoothly.  I appreciate all the supplies sent in and daily communication.  In terms of class programs, our class is learning about Terry Fox through songs, stories, sensory, and communication activities.  We are taking advantage of all the great resources available and will be dedicating a few weeks to this theme.  Looking forward to another wonderful year with an awesome class!
