Thea's Class

January & February 2023

Happy 2023! We have been busy getting back into routine from our winter break. It has been amazing to see our students back in school and engaging in learning activities. In February we will continue to focus on science-based experiments related to the various states of water (eg. Freezing, melting, evaporation, etc). We will learn to identify two dimensional shapes, sizes and continue to work on patterning skills. We will engage in literacy activities and listening a variety of texts including books, poems and nursery rhymes. Students will also continue to expand on their questioning skills and finding answers. It is going to be a fun month of learning!

November & December

Halloween was a blast! The students have been reflecting on their feelings for Halloween and descriptions of their costumes. They have been writing using predictable chart methods as well as some independent writing. The students are falling into a great routine of writing to you, parents, each day in their agenda. They choose what to write and tell you about from our schedule and then use their communication devices to form thoughts and what they want to say. Look out for their writing if you didn't already know it was from them!

During the months of November and December, we begin to work on more math patterning and tie it in with literacy and art by creating glyphs. Glyphs are ways of representing information pictorially. In our case, they are works of art created by our opinions, likes and feelings. Each artwork reflects individual student's choices. We then use them to collect, display and look for data. We look for patterns and graph our findings. We also look forward to having a presentation from a fire fighter and a police officer!
