Another busy day!
Students were super engaged this morning as they created and shared their original stories about a celestial phenomenon inspired by Indigenous perspectives, beliefs and values. We used this free and easy website called Vocaroo to record and share our voices. It was fun to see how students tackled this different from of media. Many were uncomfortable by not having to formally write their story before saying it (an element and skill of oral storytelling), and many found it very ‘cringey’ to have to listen their own voice. In the end, I am very impressed with the end products, and happy that we were all successful.
We are exploring the concepts of tax, tip and discount/sale price right now. I encourage you to draw attention to these concepts if they come up this weekend, it’s so powerful for students to see financial literacy in real life.
Report Cards are being/have been published. Mme K and I put a lot of effort into sharing as much as we could about your child and their learning. Please bring your questions, comments, concerns to conferences next week.
Have a wonderful weekend! One more week until Spring Break!
