Dear Elementary Families,
Ms. Gandhi's Blog
As an educational leader I look forward to every day, feel driven to learn, and believe that every child and adult deserves the best possible learning opportunities that can be offered.
This week was Kindness Week in Elementary and KG1 started off with some Monday Kindness and Tuesday I Love You's.
They also took a look into Numeracy with Cylinder Tuesday and Air 5 Wednesday.
Kindness is doing what you can, where you are, with what you have – Anonymous.
Children were excited to celebrate “Kindness week” at school. We decorated our classroom door with the kindness message and hearts colored by children. We did several arts and crafts related to kindness to honor the occasion. We welcomed new friends to our class and school. We also had the tooth fairy in class who gave our friend a certificate for a fallen tooth.
In numeracy, we learned about the concept of weight-measurement. Children made balance scales with hangers and cups to measure objects in class. During inquiry lessons, we were “Collaborators” as children made maps with their table partners using materials in the class. Children discovered a compass rose on our elementary playground. Outdoor play was fun playing with friends and teachers.
