Boggle

Each week the students are challenged with a new Boggle Board.  On Friday we go around the room and record the words that everyone has been able to find.  The letters must appear in order and have to touch on either the sides or the corners, words must have at least three letters, no abbreviations or names. 
I was so impressed with the list this week.  I had hidden the words hockey, stick, glove, goalie, ice and net in the puzzle.  Here is what the kids came up with! They had so many words I ran out of room on the chart paper.  Way to go!


Hearing And Sound

On Friday we had guests from the Alberta Science Network come and teach us about Hearing and Sound. What a fantastic presentation!

New Year Resolutions

The first week back in January the students worked on writing their own resolutions for the New Year.  The students typed their written work to good copy and then we turn it into an art project to display.

Skiing & Skating

We were lucky to have such amazing temperatures for our skiing and skating days this week!  It was so much fun to get outside.  Thank you to all of the parents who came out to help us out!  And thank you to the instructors from the Red Deer Nordic Ski Club who taught us on our ski day.





Learning the "bug" technique for rolling and then getting back up on skis.
















Sounds is Vibration

This week in science we have been experimenting with sound.  We have learned that Sound is Vibration! We have also been learning about the difference between pitch and volume. We have been experimenting with this by making different homemade instruments.
