Thank you Mrs. Murray for taking the time to visit us and for teaching us what it means to be a legal director. Today we learned about :
-the importance of doing well in school and how that can help us get a scholarship
-what it means to defend the government
-how our Math, Language and Culture lessons in UE can help with making and interpreting legislation
Thank you, Mrs. Murray, for showing us how everything we learn in class connects to the real world! Your time spent with us is so greatly appreciated.
The UE students enjoyed an informative day learning about our municipal, provincial and federal levels of government.
Today, our UE students took part in another fun cooperative activity. This time, students were given the challenge of constructing the tallest and strongest structure using only pasta and marshmallows and NO talking. The silence was golden!
The UE students enjoyed a fun filled afternoon working together to conquer the Pringles Ring Challenge.
The goal: to create a free-standing circular structure made of Pringles.
1. Hands must be clean.
2. Do not break any of the chips.
3. Do not eat any of the chips. (But you can take in a sniff because they smell so good!)
4. Do not lick your fingers.
5. You must build your structure on the wax paper provided.
6. You may not SPEAK to your partners.
7. You may not whisper…not a sound.
8. Your only means of communication are your eyes and your hands.
This was fun to watch!
Congratulations to our winners….
And congratulations to all of our participants! This task entailed a great deal of cooperation and focus.
March 21st marks World Down Sydrome Day and people from all over the world are joining the celebration by rockin’ their mismatched socks.
World Down Syndrome day is a global awareness day that has been observed by the United Nations since 2012.
Today, the UE1 students talked about what Down Syndrome is and about the importance of celebrating individuals with Down Syndrome. Celebrating, accepting and appreciating our differences, regardless of what those differences may be, is imperative.
Today we learned about the Silk Route and its importance for ancient civilizations. We learned about how people from different civilizations shared ideas and collectively contributed to the creation of some very special pieces of art work.
We spent this afternoon talking about the importance of practicing peacefulness, and how to do so. We made a calming jar to add to our peace table for the children to use when they need to channel their inner peace.
