Last week was Artigras, which tied in really well with our current unit – How We Express Ourselves. On Wednesday, quite a few of our G2 students were risk-takers and participated in busking in order to help raise money.
We continued to learn more about different forms of artistic expression, while also developing a passion in ourselves and others.
A number of students are also really enjoying reading and acting out plays during reading class, and it’s great to see them finding such joy in reading and analyzing the scripts in order to make the best plays possible.
On Thursday, one of the G5 exhibition groups came to class 2B in order to collect date for their exhibition project. The students had to construct an eco-friendly home using legos, and then explain about how their home was good for the environment. The G5 students were actually quite impressed with the amount of knowledge that our G2 students were able to share with them.
