Grade One Independent Projects
We all enjoy the opportunity to learn what we are most interested in. This Friday marked the launch of Independent Learning Projects for students in our class. Based on what your child shared s/he was most interested in learning about for the remainder of the school year (yep, remember this discussion from waaaay back in March during our conference?) I have been able to rally up a variety of volunteers, community members and resources to engage each child in his/her own independent learning project. Student interests range from robotics and legos to art and frogs. Please chat with your child about their area of interest and how they are going about learning more. We will continue to develop outcomes for this learning as students explore their subject area... enjoy!
