Wishing all our Div. 6 community a happy new year!
As we begin this new year, we are keeping “remember-lutions” – collecting memories of favourite moments, accomplishments, appreciations, and more, in our jar. At the end of each month, we will share out the beautiful moments with each other. We already have many to add! If you are learning at home, please feel welcome to send me yours and I will put them in the jar too!
This week, we have been playing math games and trying math games to strengthen and stretch our mathematical thinking! We are looking forward to delving into concepts of time next week. You can check out our “math” page on the blog to find out a little more about content and curricular competencies for time!
We have been practicing our strategy of visualization as we begin again on our wishtree adventure. By listening and drawing our visualizations, we are able to reflect in new ways. We also learned that the author of wishtree, Katherine Applegate, noticed and appreciated our wishtree on twitter over the break!
Through stories and outdoor explorations and games, we are wondering about the ways in which animals sense, respond, and adapt to their environment! What does the game “camouflage” help us notice about adaptations? How can “Oh deer” help us wonder about what animals need from their environment in order to survive?
What kinds of winter shelters might we find around us? Who lives in this nest? We were so surprised to learn about some amazing nest from all sorts of animals around the world! Friday afternoon, we weaved nests using many diverse materials.
We are looking forward to our learning this year!
