In Grade 2CL, students continue to practice describing, extending, comparing, and creating patterns using buttons and other manipulatives and symbols. Students love using buttons! They are so much fun to classify, too! Students sort them by colour, shape, fancy, plain, textured and smooth, and by many other attributes, as well. Button boxes and jars at home are the perfect learning toys! Grandmas and Kokoms knew this secret a long time ago!
Students in the KJ kindergarten class loved checking out the changes in weather, from splashing in puddles to creating streams and dams. Students had fun watching and noting the daily changes in weather.
In Grade 3/4S, the class enjoyed a presentation about trapping that was presented by Ramzey Zallum. Students will next enjoy a hands-on presentation tat Jaycee Park where students will learn about snares and build one themselves.
The Grade 5 students in Grade 5/6C learned a lot from the Grade 6 students last week. The Grade 6 students each gave a presentation about a different part of the Iroquois Confederation. The Grade 5 students than played Jeopardy! games about the Iroquois Confederation that the Grade 6s created. Fun was had by all and a lot of learning.
In Grade 5P, the class has its Iditarod Reading Race winner! The gold medal goes to Alison Cox. She read a total of 31 books in 12 days. Congratulations to Alison!
Students in Grade 3LM are putting their time tables to the test against a Grade 6 class. Let’s see if the hard work pays off!
