I SPY The Schoolyard

Today we combined some things we love – art and poetry. We worked in groups to write I SPY poems to accompany the schoolyard collages made last Friday. Check our class’s version of I SPY The Schoolyard!

I SPY The Schoolyard


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…

Sweater Spirit!

In4Wa, we love spirit days. Check out our creative Christmas sweaters! I’m especially impressed by the ones that students made themselves. 

Happy Holidays from our hearts to yours!


For the past 5 weeks, our class has enjoyed the company of a student teacher from RDC. Ms Carritt came to our classroom filled with joy and optimism, and she showed tremendous growth as a student teacher. She connected with each student, she learned lots of new things, and she was never afraid to try something new. She left us with the idea of choosing work that is “challenging but not frustrating”, and she helped us to realize that we are capable of great things.

We will miss her… but we know she is going to be an extraordinary teacher some day. Good luck as you finish your degree, Ms Carritt!


Color Wheel Trees


A beautiful new Art wall has been created in 4Wa. We have extraordinary artists in our room, and this gorgeous display adds a splash of colour to our boring wall. You can check out our work at Parent-Teacher Interviews this week. I hope to see you all there!
