Teacher Collaboration on Framework Goals at Charlie Lake Elementary School

Three teachers presented a Numeracy Workshop and Thinking Classrooms Workshop for all of the Charlie Lake primary teaching and support staff on the May 7th Non-Instructional Day.  The focus was on number sense using math manipulatives, such as the rekenreks and 10 frames.  The day was a resounding success and ties in with a weekly collaboration block supported through their Learning Support Fund.

Red Dress Initiative in Remembrance of Murdered & Missing Indigenous Women & Girls

“May 5th was a day of remembrance for the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls.  To honour these women, Mrs. Gardner’s 5/6 class with the help of the ISSW, Tanis Bourgeois, created these red dress silhouettes to hang in the front window of Baldonnel School.  The teachers based this project on the work of teacher Katherine Koskie from Ontario”.

Royal Kindergarteners on a shopping spree!

“RO Kindergarten students sharpened their financial literacy skills last month in a fun, play-based shopping spree.  Miss Reed’s class earned some play money to shop at their class store filled with a variety of snacks, books, school supplies and small toys while Mrs. Kendron’s class stopped in at their flower shop to purchase some fabulous bouquets!”      ….
