Unit of Inquiry
This week we continue our unit of inquiry into the transdisciplinary theme how the world works with the central idea: Understanding living things helps us share our environment and resources. The children began to research an animal they are interested in. They decided to use the internet, books and brainPop to help them learn more about their animal. We went to the library and searched for books to help us with our research. The children have researched the habitat, what the animal eats and the life cycle of the animal.
We have also been talking about wasting and not caring for classroom resources. The children have been watching how resources have been taken away from other classes in K1 because the children aren’t taking care of them. K1A has been working very hard to ensure they don’t lose any resources and are doing extremely well at caring for everything in the classroom. This will later be linked back to how we need to take care of the habitats of animals for them to survive.
Graduation and Early Release Tomorrow
Today, the Elementary School cheered on the graduating class of 2018. We made signs with our buddies and participate in the Grand Walk. Tomorrow, the children will be finished school at 11:30am. There will be no lunch serviced.
Swimming-Change of Dates

Have a great weekend and stay cool,
