3D Shapes, 2A Spotlight performance and Final Rube Goldberg Success!

by jackierendina on November 10, 2017


FINALLY SUCCESS WITH OUR RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINES
Above you can see a successful example of a Rube Goldberg machine!  The students in the photo decided to dedicate their machine to Remembrance Day and decorated it with poppies.  Throughout the current unit, students studied how things move and ways forces can be transferred.  After much experimentation and lots of perseverance students completed working Rube Goldberg machines to demonstrate their learning.  Check out a video of one of the machines below and look out for your child’s video and reflections coming soon to his/her iFolio.

SPOTLIGHT PERFORMANCE
2A did an amazing job this week with their spotlight performance.  They really are to be commended on their professionalism and outstanding performance skills.  Students worked together beautifully to create a wonderful performance, showcasing all they have been learning so far this year in performing arts lessons.  A great big thank you to Ms. Benusa for all of her hard work.  To view a video of the performance, check you CDNIS email for instructions about watching on our uStream channel.

3D SHAPES
Further exploration of 2D and 3D shapes took place this week.  Students had the opportunity to study the features of 3D shapes, create 3D shapes with modelling clay and also to construct 3D shapes using cardboard and tape.  Many of these skills carried over to constructing and creating their Rube Goldberg machines as well as building flying machines in Visual Arts.  Check out some of the photos below and click any of the photos to view our entire Google Album for this week.

PARENTING TALK – SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDER
Does your child find everyday tasks challenging? Are they distracted by touch/sounds/lights? Do they find it challenging to sit still for a short while? These are just some of the symptoms which might stand out to you. In this parenting talk on November 15 from 8am-9:30 am in the LLAC, Lorena Kastner will provide an understanding of SPD and strategies for you to understand and assist your child. RSVP here.
