The Early Start class is continuing their Black History Month curriculum. Today they read the book ‘I am Strong’ featuring the life of Rosa Parks. The Early Start classes read the story and had a lively discussion time. They showed their solidarity with a display of their strong muscles. The reading time was followed by a lesson about Rosa and the word ‘Strong’.
The JK’s have been listening for the ‘U’ for ‘up’ sound this week. They have been feeding Mr. Muncher with objects that they find in the classroom which contain the sound – like cub, cup, and duck.
The class has also been doing some fantastic work learning the difference between an analog and digital clock. They have been learning time to the hour and about the things that we might be doing at that time of day.
With screwdrivers in hand, the Grades 3&4 class spent their technology lesson dismantling computers and – impressively! – reassembling them as well. The students learned to identify the computer’s motherboard, hard drive, RAM, power source and fan. They also learned each part’s uses and why they are necessary. The students were thrilled to have our IT Support on hand for the lesson.
