Toddler 1

Todder 2

It has been a joy to watch the Toddler 2 students grow in independence, form wonderful friendships, and learn so much about the world around them this year.  We feel grateful to have spent the year in the company of such a lovely group of children, and we wish all of our beloved Toddler 2 families a delightful summer!

Water Filters

In STEM class last week, the Kindergarten students and the third graders from
Lower Elementary East were challenged to build their own water filtration system. They had a variety of materials to choose from such as gravel, sand, cotton balls and coffee filters. At the end of the class, the teachers demonstrated how a jug of dirty water can become cleaner using one such rudimentary water filter.

Building Towers

In STEM class this week, the Kindergarten students and third year Lower Elementary West students were challenged to build towers with popsicle sticks, toothpicks and straws. This time there was an added challenge! Every ten minutes when the timer went off, each group had to move to the next table and take up building the previous group’s tower. Eventually by the end of the class, the groups were back at their original table and were either excited or disappointed with what their towers had become. It was quite an adventure!

Creative writing

The kindergarteners were nishing off their stories and started rehearsing for their performance next week. They are excited to act out their very own stories during writing session.

Building a Zip Line

During their STEM challenge this week, the Kindergarteners and third year Lower Elementary North students worked together to build a modified gondola which could successfully glide on a zipline. They had to build their structures and find a way to secure someone inside. They also had to carefully consider the weight of materials they used to make sure that the structure was neither too heavy nor too light. Once everyone competed their projects, they went outside to test their gondolas on a zipline.

Year Book

The Kindergarteners were engaged finishing their End-of-Year book.

STEM Class Update: Bird Feeders

The Kindergarteners had a two-part STEM class this week. First the students went outside to the playground to test the bird feeders they created a few weeks ago. They filled them with bird seed and hung them up. Now it’s time to wait and watch for the birds!

Building Sailboats

Next the Kindergarten students returned indoors to study the topic of wind. After discussing it, they paired up to make their own sailboats. They had to make sure that their boats were lightweight and waterproof and of course had a sail.

Class Made Year Book

The Kindergarteners worked on their own Yearbook. They were excited to recall their fond memories of the school year.

Outdoor STEM

Outdoor STEM class is double fun! Continuing with the theme of birds, this week the Kindergarten students worked together with some third year Lower Elementary students to build nests. After looking at different types of nests, they headed outdoors to collect natural materials like twigs and leaves and remained outside for the length of the class, building and testing their nests.


The Kindergarteners recognized that descriptions in stories are specific rather than general. They practiced describing the main characters of the stories they read and recorded their descriptions.

Miniature Cities

As part of this week’s STEM class, the Kindergarteners transformed the Primary 3 classroom into miniature cities. The Kindergarten and Grade 3 students were split into four large groups to first plan and then layout their cities. They talked about what things are typically found in small cities, such as types of buildings, green spaces, waterfronts and more. Then using just tape and scissors, they created their city layouts!

Empowering Writers Workshop

As part of their Empowering Writers workshop, the Kindergarteners spent time thinking about how characters in a story use their five senses: They recognized what the characters saw, heard, felt, smelled and touched.

STEM Updates

In STEM class, the kindergarten students had fun designing and building bird feeders. All the designs had to incorporate a perch for the birds, a container to hold the bird seed, holes for the bird to access the seed and had to be mounted on a stand or able to be hung.
