Every week we complete an experiment using the scientific process. Here are some photos of the fun things we have done in the 2020-2021 school year!
About our classrooms
Core classes are grouped as follows: Prairie (Kindergarten & Grade 1); Savannah (Grades 2 & 3); and Woodlands (Grades 4 & 5).
The Prairie Team (Kindergarten & 1st grade) are separate classrooms. They take field trips to River Bend together and share a special Thanksgiving Feast, however they spend most of their days in their grade level classrooms. Savannah and Woodlands students spend the majority of their day in their Core Classes, which are multi-age, with the exception of the graded math block.

This year for Prairie Appreciation Day students learned about the importance of wild flowers and animals in the prarie.
We took a trip to the Nerstrand Fire Hall and learned about equipment, fire engines, and we even got a tour of the place!
Throughout the year I have been incorporating mindful stretching, breathing ,and other calming exercises throughout the day. Here are a few images to give you an idea of our movement breaks and calming times within the classroom.
P.S. This is a piece of my action research thesis for my Master's Degree. Can mindfulness impact student's executive skills?
I can do it! I will do it!
I just might not be able to do it YET!
The power of positivity and persevering.:)
