We had our first Genius Hour presentations on Friday and it went really well. I am extremely proud of how our first attempt turned out and can’t wait for more of it this coming week!
On Friday morning, just before recess, Ms. Anema’s class came by for a visit. The students were very proud to share their learning with them. As you probably know by know, the focus of my SFU inquiry is around community building. My goal is to facilitate and encourage more interactions between our French Immersion and English stream students. Over the course of the year, the students and I have been working hard at connecting with those around us. When Ms. Anema’s class presented their moon project to us last Monday, I immediately thought of returning them the favour and inviting them into our classroom to share what we have learned through our Genius Hour sessions. They were fantastic and our guests seemed like they really enjoyed themselves.
After recess, Jack and Caius took us outside where Jack demonstrated how to fly the plane he built and Caius taught everyone how to properly throw a ball. The feedback he gave was very supportive and each one of us learned a little something (including me!). After we came back inside Ilka also shared her last gymnastics adventures when she visited Québec. Everyone was impressed to see the ribbons she received for her various performances. Great work, Ilka! We are very proud of your latest accomplishments in Gatineau.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. See you tomorrow!
