What a busy week for the Super Kids! Not only did we have 50s day and two nights of student led conferences, but we also had a series of lessons with our student teacher, Miss. Phillips. Our class has been learning about community and family traditions. Miss. Phillips introduced us to the tradition of the “Star Blanket” from the Anishinaabe culture. We had the privilege to get an up close look at a blanket that her mother made for her family. The Super Kids loved looking at the details and shapes of the blanket. We extended the lesson by making our own stars with pattern blocks. We examined symmetry through this activity. The students are currently in the middle of creating their own star blankets!
