A Message from Leeloominai:
This week has been busy, Leeloo has had a lot of good days and I have been/am so proud of her accomplishments. We have been going out for walks, scooter rides, we met up with a friend who lives just across the school, we went for bike rides, then we found a nice spot and had a little picnic. She also helped my friends plant some veggies in our backyard and just been spending a lot of mommy/Leeloo time.
A Message from Poppy:
Last week was Poppy's sixth birthday so we took a little break from school work and pretended to be on holiday! Poppy received a new bike and helmet and we spent lots of time outside practicing balancing on it. We transplanted our seedlings to the garden and inspired by the book Miss Rumphius, we planted lupine seeds. Poppy was given new paints and painted a picture of poppies! Lots of time was spent drawing pictures and writing out descriptions of the pictures. There may have also been a lot of Minecraft!!!
All the best,
A Message from Oscar:
This week, we did a lot of activities around the theme of ice cream! Oscar opened an ice cream shop, created a menu and did a great job serving his customers and doing calculations at the cashier's desk. He also had lots of fun making real home-made ice cream with his dad. It was delicious!
Oscar is continuing to work on his storytelling and writing skills. He wrote a poem, and a true story about his encounter with fire ants in California.
Oscar also created an obstacle course for his stuffed animals and made a diagram of it so that we can re-create it again in the future. He also built a fortress for his hummingbird Molly to keep her safe from predators.
A Message from Jonah:
Jonah had a lot of fun learning how to stay safe on a bike. Although he hasn't quite got the hang of riding a bike, he's well versed in bike safety. His current "ride" is missing a bell which doesn't make it completely safe. We hope to improve on that soon.
Sharing Our Stories
During distanced learning our class wanted to feel connected to each other. For this reason, we set up this page on our website. Here the students shared their stories with one another! Parent permission was received to post all pictures. This year, we will be using this page to show weekly student work.
