Cultural Potluck in Grade One
The grade one students have been studying diversity in social studies. To wrap the unit up, everyone brought in something to share from their own culture. Students and families gathered for an incredible feast!
Students from JK to grade 2 were treated to a special visit from Dana Salim, the author of the children’s book Dream Time with Mommy. Ms. Salim treated the students to an interactive reading of her story as well as some related games and activities. Afterwards, the grade 1s and 2s had the opportunity to learn about what it is like to be an author, the process of writing a book, and ask any other questions they had about writing.
The grade two students participated in a job fair, displaying the jobs they want when they grow up It was a part of their social studies learning on responsibilities in our community. Each student researched and displayed their understanding using iPads, creating non-fiction books on the app Book Creator.
