Our First Week As Leobreds!!

We have had a fantastic first week of school. Thank you, families, for sharing your little Leos with us. During Da Vinci time, we are having so much fun learning about how to become a good citizen in our communities, school, classroom, and family, along with the importance of manners and making good choices. The students developed a list of hopes and dreams for the school year, created their own classroom jobs, and discussed what choices will assist us in reaching our goals (respect, kindness, thoughtfulness, etc.).

During Wonder Workshop time, the students have been exploring Leonardo Da Vinci's many talents and are proving to have many talents of their own. We have artists, architects, designers, scientists, athletes, and more. Like Da Vinci, we are using nature as our outdoor classroom, observing and sketching the wonders of nature in our very own sketchbooks. Next week we will explore magnets and begin our quarter 1 STEM project - building our own toys.

We also became math detectives, using logical reasoning and manipulating tangrams, dominoes, pattern blocks and unit cubes with the direction of our math specialist.

Thank you to everyone who has offered their time to assist us in and out of the classroom, and for coming to celebrate our opening at the Back-to-School barbeque. Also, thank you for sending in the necessary supplies, etc. to help our dreams come into fruition. We are so fortunate to have the BEST parents. Thank you for all you do to support your child's education.

We look forward to a phenomenal year!

  Tangram time! I can slide, rotate and turn shapes to create other shapes and pictures!

 I can "Make Words" - big or small! Watch me make small words out of large words and use them in a sentence, or have-a-go on the white board.

We have hopes and dreams for the school year! Let's work together to make them happen!
