This year we have been learning about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids. Some of the big ideas embedded in these lessons are planning ahead and consideration of others. In support of these lessons on good citizenship, please consider making a donation to a charity in lieu of a teacher gift this holiday season.
Below are some charities that are special to me, but any charitable donation can be celebrated.
End of November Updates
Lego Land was so much fun. Take a look at some photos from our field trip here.
We've been working in the Halton Cloud with a partner, conducting research on a specialized community in Ontario, such as mining, residential, tourism, etc.. Students will be using the information they have gathered to create slide show presentations, presenting them to the class before the winter break.
Mr. Philipp is now teaching most lessons in our classroom and will finish his practicum on December 5th. He's been teaching us how to find the main idea in texts (both fiction and non-fiction), introducing geometry, and conducting guided reading with groups of readers. His art lessons have been thorough and exciting. Hopefully he'll come back to visit later in the school year.
