Pencil Grip

As children grow and their pencil grip gets better, you will begin seeing those papers that resembled small scribbles turn into intricate designs.


Tracing a Map

Have you ever tried tracing a puzzle? It’s not quite as easy as you may think. The Primary 3 students are traced each individual puzzle piece and later color it. A work like this could easily take more than one school day to complete. These multi step activities promote independence coordination concentration.

Reading Buddies

Reading buddies is a wonderful way for the Kindergarten children to become comfortable with the children teachers and space in the upper school. This makes for an easier transition into rst grade.


Sensorial Activities

In sensorial children have the freedom to explore colors and grade them from lightest to darkest. Although this work may seem simple it can be quite tricky.

Non-Napper Activities - December 7, 2018

This week, Non-napper students were happy to study about evergreen trees, especially the conifers. They watched a video about the characteristics and uniqueness of these amazing trees. They also had the opportunity to match the leaves from conifer trees with their respective pictures.


Pinecone Experiment

Why are some pinecones open while others are closed? Scales of seed-bearing pine cones move in response to changes in humidity. When in a warm and dry environment, the pinecone opens up to release the cone's seeds. When damp or cold, the scales close. The students participated in an experiment and drew their observations.
