1) – Outing
As most of you know, we are planning another outing for Wednesday, October 28th to Fort Whyte. As best I can recall at this moment, the day runs from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. We will be outside for a chunk of the day, so all of us must be dressed for the weather. I am looking forward to what may be our last outside outing until winter camp in March.
Dave and I have a preliminary list of parent drivers. If you are able to drive, can you let us know again (sorry).
2) – World Cities Integrated Project
We are having a great year this year in Flex and are soon to embark on one of our integrated units for the year. Our World Cities project will integrate the four core subject areas as we are studying World Cities in Social Studies, Structures in Science, Area and Shape and Space in Math, and Expository writing in English. Your daughter or son may be coming home at the end of the school day over the next little while looking for things to build their city with (just to forewarn you). You are all welcome to come in and be a part of the adventure!
The grade 7s and Dave and I had a great time this afternoon viewing Where the Wild Things Are. The movie reminded me of our classroom, some of our students, and the imagination of youth.
Let the Wild Rumpus begin!
