On one of our nature walks we collected sticks. Later we brought them in and did some math with them. After we sorted them in many ways we enjoyed reading Stick Man, an entertaining book by Julia Donaldson about a stick man who is turned into all sorts of interesting things.
Division 10 was excited to welcome a soap stone artist into the class to teach them about carving. We talked about how soap stone carvings are popular amongst Inuit artists. We also watched a video of a carver crafting a fish sculpture and looked up different soap stone animals to further our learning.
We have been building our classroom community and have been learning what it takes to have a peaceful environment. The children listed some key ideas of what they need to feel safe and respected at school here on our Peace Makers class contract. Each child attached a cut out of their hand that they signed.
Division 10 had a great time learning more about Fire safety from the experts at Station 1. The children got to spray the fire hose, sit in the fire trucks, watch the fire fighters show their equipment and ask lots of questions. We learned that Sperling Station does all the 911 dispatching for Burnaby. What a fun and educational trip!
