With the holidays fast approaching, we know that many families have fun adventures awaiting. This is a wonderful time of year to spend with family and friends and rejuvenate. We encourage our soon-to-be G4s to get outside as much as possible and be creative and imaginative. Monitoring screen time during the holidays is important and we encourage our students to be balanced with the amount of time spent on digital devices. The following are just a few ideas to keep the brain active over the break.
This is a website that all of our students are familiar with. We can’t stress enough how important it is to continue doing math throughout the summer. Try doing new things in the G3 IXL page.
This is the RAZ kids login. The teacher login is KISG2G for girls and KISG2B for boys.
Although a creative writing journal can often be enough to practice writing skills over the holiday, Night Zookeeper is a nice platform to engage writers in new creative ways and allow them to read the work of their peers.
Crafting is not only fun for your children, but a time when they can be creative and problem solve. The above link has interesting ideas for different crafts to make and the bonus is that they require minimal supplies. Happy crafting!
There is no denying that science is AWESOME and any extra opportunity that children have to explore how the world works around them is time well spent. The above link has 100 free experiments with easy to follow procedures on a wide range of scientific topics.
And most importantly, and we cannot stress this enough, allow your child the time to READ. Encourage reading as a habit of mind in the home by discussing books your children are reading and sharing the books that you enjoy.
We wish everyone a safe and relaxing summer holiday!
We had a great celebration with our own little awards show to celebrate the wonderful year that we’ve had in G2.
Since we will need to wear our school uniforms on Thursday and Friday this year, Wednesday, June 12, will be Free Dress Day!
Students can wherever they want to show us who they really are or how they feel the most comfortable!
As we draw closer to the final week, we have so much to look back on and celebrate. This week and into next, the student are taking time to reflect on their own personal learning journey’s and think about what they have accomplished this year. Checking in with our unit One ‘Who We Are’ has allowed us to explore how we have worked towards:
- Striving for Understanding
- Developing Passion in ourselves and others
- Creating a caring and inclusive community
- Taking Ethical Action
