Dear Parents,

We enjoyed a visit from many of you on Tuesday’s  ‘Open Classroom Day’.  It was wonderful to have you into K1A to experience learning beside your child.  It was lovely to see you all engaging in our play-based approach.  As you can see, the children are very comfortable with their learning environment, and they enjoy challenging themselves in different ways with the materials and provocations in our space.  As your child posts on his/her SeeSaw account about Open Classrooms, please do take the time to post a response to the questions.  Thank you for your time and support.

This was a big week for K1A as we finally shared our thoughts, learning, and work about children’s rights. Please help our class to further spread their ideas by sharing the assembly video with relatives, talking at home about rights, and letting your child wear his/her special t-shirt.  The shirts were made using special fabric markers and have been heat sealed, so they should be fine to be washed and worn again and again.

After our assembly, the Grade 4 students came down to spend some time with us to learn about our ideas about children’s rights for their new unit of inquiry. It was wonderful to see our K1 children teaching Grade 4s.

Finally – thank you so very much for all of the fabulous Teachers’ Days gifts.  Ms. Nhung and I have never been so spoiled!  We love working with you and especially your children every day.
