Milania’s grandma, Tejas’, and Soham’s mom and return-readers Jovahn’s and Dhun’s mom, ended the month of November on an a special note. In conclusion, we would like to thank each and every parent who participated in our November Parent Guest Reader Month for building a sense of community within the walls of Casa 4.
Students in UE1, UE2 and Grade 6 presented their amazing French projects this week. Students and teachers from other classes came in to see them during a walk around and our guests voted for the “most extraordinary” invention.
Our Invention of the Year winners as selected by our guests are Mustafa Khan, Evan Beffort and Bailey Richards. Congratulations!
UE 1 asks………What do you think will happen, and why?
Once again we would like to thank Riddhi’s, Armaan’s, Harleen’s, and Ryan’s mom as well as Isla’s dad for sharing their love of reading with the children in Casa 4.p
A few Level Three students from LE, came to listen to the Casa 4 students read their phonetic readers. We look forward to having these amazing reading buddies join us again next Thursday.
Several Level One, LE students visited and took on the role of mentoring the students in Casa 4 today. Some of the mentors worked side by side with the children, read books to them, and even assisted them with their work. The students in Casa 4 enjoyed seeing their old friends. They look forward to seeing them again next week.
Senior French students worked together to bake bannock, croissants and create a fruit salad according to the areas they studied in their respective French units. Grade 6 students baked bannock after learning about Lethbridge, Alberta. Grade 7 students created a fruit salad after studying aspects of Port-au-Prince, Haiti and grade 8 students baked chocolate croissants after reading about Gréolières, France. A delicious time was enjoyed by all!
Senior French students are hard at work preparing their final unit projects for “Eureka!”; a unit that taught us about inventions and project planning. Students chose a situation that they could remedy, created an invention to solve the problem, gave their inventions original names, created logos and are able to speak about the advantages of their creation. They will take part in presentations and a gallery walk of their work in the upcoming days.
The students in the Grade 5 class were testing each other on high frequency French words today, using the associated gestures. This is a part of the A.I.M. French program which uses gestures to assist recall of important vocabulary.
Grade 3 is completing a Math Fair Project titled Lemonade Chippers. They are learning about what makes a good business; how to promote; and how to conduct a business. They also learned about nuances of customer service and how to entice customers- by offering free samples. Today we opened our Lemonade Stand for business, and we had quite a few customers. We are open tomorrow too. So if you haven’t tried our Lemonade and chips, please feel free to stop by at lunch time.
