The fun never ends! We have been making our way through the forested areas around FAH. We have encountered many clues that animals live nearby, especially when there is snow on the ground. The children have discovered many footprints in the snow. We wonder if they are those of rabbits, deer, dogs, or even maybe a dinosaur! Let's hope not the last one, but it is so much fun to use our imagination.
Discovery Play is such an exciting time. Some of the students have been experimenting in the wet area making potions. Not only are they seeing the colour changes when mixing paint, they are noting that when a sponge is place in the water, the water level rises, the sponge changes colour, and it also absorbs some of the water.
Thank you for sending in the Play dough! The children love this stuff and the more we get the quicker we can replace it. MERCI !
This week, FAH is having a book sale in the library from Monday-Wednesday. Please see note below for further details. The money raised from this sale helps to purchase more books for the library.
Weather ups and downs. It is so hard to know how to dress in the morning. Thank you for sending warm clothing for the children as we are outside quite a bit. The forest is our outside classroom and the children do really enjoy this time. Please ask your child if they need warmer clothing for our outdoor adventures.
We are going to try a new idea and we hope that you will like to partake. Once a month we would like to have an activity block, where we would invite parents to come in and help with centre-style activities-much like Scientists in the School. We would need about 5 parents to help out with these events. We are striving to improve the home-school learning experience. On Friday, December 13th, (11h00-12h15) we would like to start with a fun math activity time. If you are available to assist with this activity, please send us an email.
The children enjoyed learning about Hanukkah and sharing a taste of latkes. Merci to the parent who volunteered her time to share with us.
It was great to meet with you during our parent-teacher interviews. As we indicated, please feel free to contact us if you would like to further discuss any concerns you may have.
Have a great night!
