Grade 1 - September 22 / 2017


Highlights:
This week, we launched our online reading program, RAZ Kids, which can be used both at home and at school. We are excited to start using this programme next Monday! Instructions for downloading the app and how to login were sent home. Please let us know if you have any questions.

The students started thinking about their passion inquiry project. They brainstormed topics they were interested in and we spent some time determining which topics make for better inquiries. For example, the question: “How many players are on the Blue Jays?” is a quick Google search, but, “How does a volcano erupt?” makes for a deeper inquiry into how things work.  We talked about how questions can be thick or thin. Thick questions keep us hunting for more information.

Thank you for your support with our launch of Class Dojo. We hope you got a little glimpse of Grade 1 life this week!

Reminders:
Headphones - We will be using RAZ Kids on Monday, and therefore, the students will need their headphones. If you haven’t yet sent in a pair, it would be much appreciated if you could send themto school on Monday morning. Please mark the headphones clearly with your child’s name on a plastic baggie. Thank you for your assistance!

The Fall 2017 Co-Curricular Programme continues until December 21st.
