Grade 4 Social Studies Project:
Thank you to all the students who worked so hard to complete and then share their Province & Territories project. They turned out amazing and now we have a deeper understanding of the features and characteristics of provinces outside of our own (Ontario). We are now in the process of an art project which highlights the various provincial birds. Ask your child which bird they chose :)
Yesterday our class participated in a school wide initiative to help promote and get excited about Nutrition Month and snacking smart to refuel our minds and bodies. Every student was given an apple and at 2:30 p.m. we all crunched into our delicious treat and thought about the importance of healthy snacking.
Thank you to Ms. Stewart for visiting our classroom on Tues. and Thurs. to pilot another creative art project with my class! This time, our focus is on Birds Around Canada. We chose this theme as it celebrates our beautiful country and it is turning 150 years come July!Students each picked a bird of interest to research and create. Many of the Gr. 4's chose their provincial bird as this links wonderfully to their social studies learning. Please note, when we complete these pieces, we will be displaying them for our Art Expo for students and their families to admire which will take place on Wed. May 3rd from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Mark it down in your calendars now :)
Today during period 3, we had a surprise assembly for Mrs. Garvan (grade 6 teacher) and Mrs. Weeks (planning time teacher) to celebrate them as they head into their journey to parenthood! Both these lovely teachers are expecting their first child and we want to wish them the very best in this precious and magical experience! As a colleague and friend of yours, I will miss your bright smiles and supportive ways. All the very best and we look forward to meeting your new bundles of JOY!
I love when my students eagerly want to share their own growth mindset quotes with me and their peers :) This creates such a positive energy not just in our words, but more importantly in our actions! Thank you Brock for this week's inspiration!
