TUESDAY'S TEACHER

It has been very busy the past few weeks and although I shared this recognition on twitter, I also meant to share it here. I was recognized as a "Tuesday Teacher" by Tes Teach - one of the web-based programs I have taught students to use to showcase their learning.

Year-end trip June 21

Students received permission forms for the year-end trip to the Ottawa Solstice Festival at Major's Hill Park on June 21. More information can be viewed below.

Students have been working (with some frustration) on adding and subtracting fractions showing their conceptual understanding with fraction strips, number lines and grids. Today, I showed another method to a few students. One of them insisted that her understanding be published...so here it is!

Wire sculptures come to life!

These Alexander Calder inspired wire portraits are completed. Students were very creative in the challenge of working with a very hands-on new medium, but this opportunity produced great art works.

Wire sculpture creativity at work
