About our Program

Our program consists of many opportunities for students to explore math and literacy in whole class, small group and indepedent learning settings. During whole class learning, students engage with their classmates, participate in group discussions and practice turn taking. In our classroom, we use whole group learning circles to read stories and teach or reinforce new skills and concepts.

Small group learning is ideal for teaching specific skills to a few students focusing on individualized differentiated instruction. Individual learning gives each child opportunities to work on activities based on their individual learning plans. Technology and play based learning are often used in independent learning as a motivational tool. We love to explore in our class through the use of robotics. 

Another huge part of our program is core communication. Core language is modelled for the students consistently throughout the day using both a communication board and Vantage. Students are also encouraged to use core communication in their daily interactions through oral language, core communication boards, Minspeak devices and Step by Steps.

What We Are Learning

We are very excited for sunshine and warm weather in Class Four, please send a hat for your child for outdoor time.

In Literacy, students enjoyed a Superhero themed unit. In Numeracy, students continue one-to-one correspondence and positional concepts.  During Robotics, students enjoyed building sight words using Sphero, Dash and Beebot, and working on positional concepts.  Our Robotics lessons also took us into the gym and Play McGivney, where we worked on some of our tracking goals, cause and effect, and positional concepts!
