Aboriginal Youth Liason Officer Visit
Desmond O'Connor, Aboriginal Youth Liason Officer (AYLO), recently visited Mrs. Desormeau's ELKP class to explain a little about the Medicine Wheel.
Math with Dr. Julie Comay
Our teachers are constantly reflecting on and refining their teaching practices. Our K-1 teachers are working with Dr. Julie Comay to learn about the importance of spatial reasoning in Math concept development. Dr. Comay recently modelled a Math lesson for the teachers in Mme. Cheff's Gr. 1 FI class that used directional language to find a mystery zoo animal on a grid. The students enjoyed the challenge of writing "code" for each other and then giving these puzzles to their peers to solve!
"Let's see if Mme. Cheff can figure out our mystery zoo animal!"
