Kindergarten students pick up where their classes left off last year. They no have a good handle on lines and 2D shapes. They are ready to learn about 3D shapes and the world around us! Bravo!
Voici ce que les 2 classes de PK1 font en distance learning sur le thème de l’eau.
What is a liquid? What is a solid? Can a liquid become a solid? We will discover the answer to all of these questions together!
The 2 and 3 year old students just finished up their unit on the farm. They learned french vocabulary and sentence structures. They worked on counting the animals they saw and they also used this theme to explore lines to prepare for writing. Enjoy!
How do you make a garden grow? Ms. Valerie and Ms. Emilie’s students studied Seeds and Plants. They can know and they can help!
Wearing PURPLE, GREEN, and GOLD to celebrate “New Orleans Mardi Gras” and the diversity that exists at our SDFAS community, we had a bead parade.
Upon arrival, the Middle and Elementary school students received beaded necklaces. They looked with admiration upon their older school mates as they paraded around the school. By gently placing his or her own necklace around the neck of one of the little ones, they shared a moment of encouragement and a special bond.
All the Preschoolers and Kindergartners were able to express themselves on stage through one of the most important pillars at SDFAS : EMOTIONS . We are proud that our students presented an original show on stage and showcase themselves with confidence. We saw and celebrated ANGRY, HAPPY, SAD, SCARED, CALM and EXCITED,… faces. We showed parents how we deal with these big emotions in a healthy way.
“Out of this world! Welcome to space”
Pre-Elementary Students are hard at work and building their cardboard creations furiously.
Inspired by Caine’s Arcade Pre-Elementary students take on the cardboard challenge! The process began with allowing the students to explore, create and imagine things with cardboard. They observe, play with and manipulate the cardboard, becoming familiar with the material.
SPACE. This year, in particular, exploring the theme was a big part of the project for us as Space is an unfamiliar place for the students. It is challenging to build something that is not part of the kid’s reality and daily life. The students considered many questions:
What do you need to explore it? Is it possible to see from Earth? Why do people go? How do you get there? What is it? Where is it? What do you wear there? Who gets to go? and Who lives there??
The cardboard challenge is one of many opportunities we give to students to exercise and develop their problem-solving skills. It is a great occasion to collaborate and build a project together. Students follow a process, they observe and analyze, then produce their version of something. What’s more, they use recyclable materials, become more familiar with repurposing objects and get to run with their creativity.
These pictures are a sneak preview of the works in progress!
