Resilience is…

Think about the song you hear when you watch this video about Scarlett. What type of character is she? 

STEM- Booty in the Ship

This week we had our first STEM challenge. We worked in groups of 3 and 4 to create a buoyant ship that would be able to hold the most pirate booty (treasure/loot). Today was trial #1. We will aim to improve our ship to float better. Next week we will have trial #2 and #3. Here is some photos of our ship creations and our trial #1!

Growth Mindset


How does the main character show Growth Mindset? How many tries does it take her before she is successful?

What do you think the author of this video is trying to teach others? Is there a message?

Growth Mindset


This week we have been discussing ‘Growth Mindset’! We talked about the important word ‘yet’ when working out our strengths and weaknesses and setting our goals for our future and the year.  We also GREW our brain when working with a group to create the longest strip of paper. We talked about what strategies worked well and then we tried to beat out first attempt by using our learning from the first attempt!! It was a SUCCESS!! We all grew our brain and beat our first try! Way to go 3/4s!

Stand in My Shoes – Developing Our Empathy


Today for our circle time WALT (We Are Learning To develop our empathy). First, our teacher showed us some funny and fancy shoes and asked us how we would feel wearing someone else’s shoes. We listened to the story ‘Stand in My Shoes’ by  Bob Sornson that taught us about empathy and showed us many ways to show empathy. We then discussed different situations and identified the feelings people might feel (using emoticons/emojis) and then we came up with solutions of what we could do to show empathy. Lastly, we got to try on some of the shoes and wear them during recess and class time. Today was even more special because during our circle time we had Mrs Russell and some special visitors from St John Vianney’s in Parkdale stop by. Thanks to Mrs Russell, Natasha, Kerry, Fleur and Shane for coming to share our circle time with us!

What did you learn about EMPATHY?  How did it feel when you tried on or wore someone else’s shoes? How can you show empathy at home? At school? To someone you don’t know?

Feelings in Emoticons

Circle Time – Yoga and Meditation Session


After reading a picture fiction entitled Courage To Fly (about a little girl who was scared to try new things, take risks and be out of her comfort zone) we discussed the times we felt afraid to take risks in our own life then we had a mini yoga session and meditation! We felt very relaxed and peaceful afterwards! 🙏




In our class we are learning about SEL (social and emotional learning). We talked about people we think possess SEL qualities like Dora the Explorer, Angelina Jolie and Ellen. We said they were confident, risk-takers, set goals, don’t give up, friendly, kind, caring, responsible and positive. We also sang a song that has to do with SEL. Below is the song. How is the song related to SEL?
