This week we continued our inquiry into the transdisciplinary theme sharing the planet with the central idea: understanding living things helps us share our environment and resources. Ms. Emma helped the children take the 2-D drawings of the animals they researched to 3-D sculptures using clay. Each child is creating an e-book about his/her research. These books are almost complete and will be shared on the student blogs.
On Tuesday Ms. Anissa visited the class to help us prepare to have a safe and happy summer, and to understand about body safety. You may want to ask your child about riding in taxis, playground safety, crossing the street, private parts and saying no.
On Wednesday some Grade 1 students visited the class to teach us about rhino poaching, and distributed books for the students to take home.
We had a very special assembly this morning. We said farewell to Dr. Barder and his wife through song, stories, videos, poems and gifts. We also congratulated our Grade 1 friends by singing a song with them and presenting flowers.
Tomorrow the students will meet their new teachers and classmates on Moving Up Morning. Your child will spend part of the morning with his/her K2 teacher and classmates. Don’t forget to ask your child about his/her experience. You will receive a class list, class photo and letter from the teacher.
