News from Grade 1
October has been a busy month for the students in Grade 1. We started by collecting items for the Thanksgiving Food Drive to be donated to the Fair Share Food Bank. As part of our Math Curriculum, we tracked the number of cans, boxes and bagged items that we donated and put the data into a graph. Can you believe that we collected so many items? It sure feels good to help those in need!
As part of our Geography Montessori Curriculum, we also participated in a special activity called “The Great Lesson”. The Grade 1 teachers from OP & OE worked together to present a large group lesson, including Grade 1 students from both campuses. The students witnessed a variety of experiments relating to how the earth was formed while listening to a beautiful story.
As part of our Zoology Curriculum we completed our unit about Canadian Animals by creating beavers out of clay and dioramas of their natural environment. How cute are these little beaver dams?
Being in Grade one is so much FUN! One of our favourite things to do is to have recess at the Big Campus. There are lots of things to climb and a soccer field for us to practice our epic skills!
