June 12-16

Senior Students went to Science World on Monday, checking out everything from Virtual Reality to the plumbing of tiny homes. They got lots of ideas for their space suits and will be wrapping up Space tomorrow. Parents are welcome to come early and check out the amazing Space Museum Monday 2:00-3:00 the kids are putting together.

Wednesday we did our annual Sr. Amazing Race, mission impossible style. We solved spelling challenges, picked up disguises, performed Karaoke, and looked for secret clues. In the afternoon art class, students worked on their self portraits which will join our art exhibit this Friday during our potluck Celebration.

On Thursday students worked on their Go Karts, which we are going to race this coming Thursday 12:00. In the afternoon they learned how to edit video in Media Skills.

The week ahead:

Monday 2:00-3:00 Showcase Science and Math Work

Thursday 12:00 Go Kart Races

Friday 5:00 Potluck & Showcase


Junior Students looked at concepts of analog and digital time, time zones and how exchange rates work across different countries. We had fun researching the money from our countries and looking at the symbolism of flags. We looked at the original Canadian Flag design, Union Jack and all!

In the afternoon we recapped our Math Skills from the term and worked on our Griffin and Sabine letters, which are really amazing! I can’t wait until everyone sees the finished product this Friday. We will showcase all of the work to date, including kid’s videos, claymations, art work, science, math and writing.

On Tuesday, Farm School students helped to build a new field, worked on their scrapbooks, harvested from the garden and worked on their amazing fort. I just might go and sleep in it one of these nights!

On Wednesday students finished Batiks, and started their incredible Bug Sculptures, which will also be on display this Friday. In the afternoon we made two styles of Puff Pastries, one with Potatoes and Carrots, and the other with chocolate and cream filling. It was quite the endeavor, and even though we ended up with pancakes on our desert side of Puffs, the potato and carrot Puff was really good!

On Friday we ran through the play and tried on costumes. We will put the finishing touches on the performance this week. If the students on Friday are able to stay the whole day that is great. We can run through the play again, work on setting up the Showcase and Potluck. Please let me know if this works for you.

Please RSVP to the potluck and Campover. It sounds like some people will be taking off for camping on Friday, in which case we might not have the campover (we will plan it for earier in the month in that case next year.)

While I have always looked towards teaching for my profession, it was the two years as I spent in Japan an ESL teacher that convinced me I had found my calling. I enjoy the challenges we face in the classroom—the variety of learning styles, the creative versus the scientific mind—and see the day-to-day impact that teachers have on students’ lives. In my own classroom I try to create a sense of excitement and adventure. I strongly advocate for Multiple Intelligence as a central pedagogy.
