Videos to watch

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend!  I have added some links for you to watch at home with your child.  They are some videos we have watched in the classroom.  We are working on the short a sound and word families. Here is one about the seasons, months of the year and days of the week. Enjoy!



Friday Breakfast

On Friday the staff made a pancake breakfast for our students.  Here are the Grade one students enjoying their breakfast.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom STEM Challenge




On Thursday of last week I gave the students a STEM challenge.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

They had so much fun!!

We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom first.Next I asked the following questions:

Can you build an alphabet tree?

How many letters does it hold?

These pictures are from our challenge.  I believe the highest number of letters a tree would hold was 23. There was fantastic discussion about problem-solving when the letters fell off and about the base of the tree and how to arrange the branches.  Lots of thinking!!! It was awesome!!!

Our experiment worked!!  We discovered that red + blue makes purple, red + yellow makes orange and blue + yellow makes green!!!

Now we are wondering when crayons are made where do they get the blue, yellow and red to put in the crayons?
