For the last 2 months, Kindergarten students have counted, added and subtracted by programming little robots called “Beebot”. Meanwhile, the 4th graders were learning how to code polygons using “Probot”, an advanced version of the “Beebot”. In addition to the required Geometry skills, they acquired specific coding knowledge: loops, logic and debugging.
All this work led to a meeting between both classes so they could share their new skills during a cooperative lesson. The older students had to program their Probot to trace different polygons. Then, they asked the younger ones to name the figures in French and English, and to point to the correct word among others on a document. A great active pedagogical experience, full of kindness and cooperation to learn better.
Each year SDFAS Pre-Elementary section celebrates “la semaine du Goût” (Taste Week), with numerous activities revolving around food. During the 2018 Edition, our students trod grapes, cooked with chefs, and discovered food from India, Turkey, France, and Syria. They blinded tested, compared and contrasted fresh fruits and dry fruits. They organized a market with a lemonade stand, a salty cake stand and a coconut cake stand. What a week!
After a month of working on concepts, picking a vehicle, designing it, improving it, our students finally shared their creations today with SDFAS teachers, students, and parents. They were so proud and everybody had the opportunity to play with a red plane, a bus, a train, a spaceship, a balloon, a pink plane and some race cars.
Two constructions stations were also available to allow our visitors to create their own vehicle. It was a great celebration of our students creativity and imagination.
