Thank you to all who have sent a family photo and signed up for K2C Family Show and Tell.
I am also hoping you can upload ONE photo of your child as a baby to this padlet. Next week, we would like to play a ‘Guess Who’ game.
Who are our Grade 4 Buddies? Yesterday, K2C and K2D met with Grade 4C and 4D. We played a fun game called “Just Like Me’ and then enjoyed showing Gr 4 our classrooms and teaching them how to make sensible play choices. Ask your child to tell you more!
What are we learning about in K2C?
We are learning to talk about numbers with Ms Beth
We learning how to document our own learning using iPads with Ms Michelle
This week K2C also had a PSEL ( Personal Social Emotional Learning) lesson with Ms. Kris Bezzerides, our ES Counsellor. firstname.lastname@example.org. Ms Kris introduced K2C to the Zones of Regulation. Can your child to tell you about these feelings zones?
Ms Cathie is also a learner! Last weekend, and on Monday and Tuesday this week, I was also growing my brain, as I joined 60 other teachers from the region to learn about “Cognitive Coaching”. The mission of Cognitive CoachingSM is to produce self-directed persons with the cognitive capacity for excellence both independently and as members of a community. Research indicates that teaching is a complex intellectual activity and that teachers who think at higher levels produce students who are higher achieving, more cooperative, and better problem solvers. It is the invisible skills of teaching, the thinking processes that underlie instructional decisions, which produce superior instruction.
I warmly invite K2C parents to come our K2C classroom ( B11 G07) next Thursday, September 6th, for Back to School Night.
This is a good opportunity for parents to meet each other as well as get a better understanding of your child’s learning environment and teachers.

|Ongoing from 6.00pm – 7.30pm||Specialist Teacher Information||

At the Back To School evening, teachers will share with you a range of information including:
