November was a month filled with lots of experiences that were both fun and educational. In literacy, our class explored a variety of fictional texts that expanded our knowledge of writing, listening and reading. Our school also commemorated Remembrance Day during the month of November with a ceremony announced over the PA system. Due to the COVID-19 our school wasn’t able to host the traditional type of Remembrance Day ceremony however, our school created a ceremony that included readings of poetry over the intercom, so that we could enjoy it from the safety of our classroom. Students also participated in an LSK poster contest, where students had to create a Remembrance Day themed poster.
As the month of December sets it, we’ll continue working on literacy and math skills right up until Christmas break. The big difference is, this time of year is especially fun because Christmas themed activities can be sprinkled into as many lessons as it takes to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. Art and Music will both be heavily influenced by the theme of Christmas too. It’s an exciting time to be in the classroom because students had to attend school virtually around this time last year and now they’ll get to experience all the fun learning experiences and opportunities that come with the month of December.
