Dreamin’ Big!

Check out the fresh new faces of 4Wa. I am so lucky to be spending the year with such a lovely group of thoughtful kids. I can’t wait to see how they grown and what they accomplish… I have big dreams for this bunch!


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. 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…

Art in the Open Air

Today was the last day before the May long weekend. What a day! We began with bellies full of pancakes, and the day just kept getting better. This afternoon, there were several students missing. We decided to make the best of it and headed outside for some nature art and exploration. Students made spontaneous connections to Social Studies and Science, and they got creative with some items found in the schoolyard. We are thinking these creations might be perfect for a class “I Spy” book! Stay tuned…
