The Grade 1’s have been exploring the 5 senses. They are learning through real experiences, one sense at a time. They went on a ‘listening hike’ using their hearing sense. Trying to listen for different animal sounds, nature sounds or ‘man-made’ sounds. One child even heard “a spider making his web…” They love exploring their senses so far!
In language arts the kids studied “Peace,” in honour of Remembrance Day. We read non-fiction and fiction stories to help inspire deeper thinking on “What is Peace?” They wrote about their ideas and shared them in class. They are an encouraging group of little ones!
Lastly in grade the students did beautiful artwork that was embedded in our Peace week. They turned out beautifully.
