Arctic Light

Today our school had the lucky experience of listening to John Dunn. He shared his love of all things Arctic with us, and he wowed us with some spectacular pictures of Canada’s North.

After the presentation, we reflected on all of the things he shared that are connected to our Grade 4 learning. It was a powerful way to remind us that our world really isn’t very big after all.

Happy Halloween!

We had a howling great day at school today. Incredible Halloween setting writing (coming soon to FreshGrade), some mystery math, an extraordinary assembly, and finally the Jack O’Lantern Jive! Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween – now remember to GET SOME SLEEP TONIGHT!

Welcome to Grade 4 at IRIC!

I’m so happy to be welcoming a fresh bunch of dreamers and learners to my class this year at IRIC. It’s going to be an excellent adventure together!

One Word

Another school year is drawing to a close, and it’s a great time to reflect. Students created report cards for the teacher this morning, and had some excellent suggestions and memories to share. This year, each student was asked to write a letter to a child who will be in Grade 4 next year. They had to think of ONE WORD to describe the year, and use that word as a theme for each paragraph in their letter. I think it is safe to say that there is one word that sums up my school year… extraordinary.

June

June. It is here already! This year has flown by, and we are maturing and growing so much… as you can tell from our photo below.

This is going to be a busy month filled with fun events, track day, Canada 150 celebration, and an extraordinary  PBL Slumber party. We are going to make the most of our time together before the lazy days of summer begin! Stay tuned for more fun…
