We have had a wonderful start to the year and everyone is more settled and enjoying their days at school. This week we will begin our Unit of Inquiry, “Who We Are,” with the Central Idea: Interactions with others help us build our relationships. We will follow the lines of inquiry :
- How we develop relationships
- How words and actions can change relationships
- How our choices and actions reflect what we want in our relationships
As we tune into our UOI we ask that you email a family photo to your child’s teacher which will act as their first artifact. Please show your child the photo you will email and discuss who is in it and what their relationship with them is. This will help us when we start interviewing the children to learn more about their families.
We have noticed the children have taken a particular interest in firefighting. We are working to nurture this interest and see where the children will take it!
Our EY2 Post Office is in full swing and a popular center where the children are developing their writing as well as using play money to buy materials for their letters to friends. This week we will discuss what a letter looks like, headings, and signatures. Students are learning that these parts to a letter are important so that it gets to the right person and that the receiver knows who it’s from.
We were very curious about the tiny frogs we found on the playground. Grade 1 has been keeping them safe in a terrarium in their classroom. We plan to visit them to see how they are doing!
A very Happy Birthday to Nini who celebrated her birthday last week!
