It is amazing how fast the time is going and we are now into our third month of school! October was a busy, but fun filled month as we completed our Bear theme and concluded the unit with making bear dens in class. Then we moved on to investigating some of the wonders of nature in Autumn. We worked with the colourful leaves and different size /shape pumpkins. We explored many concepts in our activities from sorting, estimating and counting seeds, measuring mass and perimeter. We enjoyed making and reading many leaf and pumpkin books. The carved pumpkins were the best! .
We have been learning and talking about the Seven Teachings which include the following: Respect, Humility, Honesty, Courage, Truth, Wisdom and Love. We included these words in our classrooms rules and refer to them daily. We continue to review playground safety and are learning about the importance of being a contributing citizen in our classroom, community and world.
