Archived Site

by jenniferfenton on July 22, 2013

As you know this site will be removed from the CDNIS directory in August. I have archived the posts and comments on a new site, 4D Doodling Doughnuts. Unfortunately  the links will not work in this archived site, but you will have access to old posts and the names of the sites we used.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer and best of luck in Grade 5!


Last Day

by jenniferfenton on June 11, 2013

And then there was one. One last day to finish up. One last day to visit Learning Buddies. One last day to be a Doodling Doughnut. One last day to say farewell. We had a lovely last day together in 4D. I want to thank all of the parents and students for the beautiful farewell gift. I love the painting of the Lamma pier and the book about Hong Kong is stunning ~ both will be keepsakes and bring with them fabulous memories of my family’s time with the CDNIS community.

It has been a pleasure getting to know and work with the students in 4D. They are such a creative and enthusiastic group of learners and I have so enjoyed watching them grow increasingly independent as the year went on.

This blog should be available until August and I will be archiving the posts on a ‘Grade 4 Memories’ site in July. I will share the link with you on this blog.

Have a super summer!

Marvellous Monday!

June 10, 2013

It is hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of school. Our year together has gone by so quickly, yet when I reflect on all we have accomplished it is amazing that we’ve only been together for 10 months. I am so proud of the students in 4D ~ they have grown so […]

Final Friday

June 7, 2013

As you know, Fridays are a busy day for 4D. With Chinese dance, PE, Chinese and an assembly, we only have 3 periods together. With such limited time, a few things were postponed until Monday. The first, and perhaps most important, is that we will not bring home portfolios until Monday. These binders are now […]

Class Party & Minecraft

June 6, 2013

We began our party day by finishing the book, The Tale of Despereaux and then watching the movie. These were two very different stories and it was interesting that some of us liked the book better and others enjoyed the version told in the movie. I encourage you to talk to your child about the […]

Congratulations to Hannah and Mia! Both girls have demonstrated they are true PYP risk-takers by taking part in the Lower School Student Council election process. They were poised communicators when they shared their speeches with the Grade 4 and 5 students in the LLAC this morning and will be great additions to next year’s LSSC. […]

And then there were 8

May 31, 2013

We held our last Genius Hour this week and today the students began sharing the results of their investigations. I have been so impressed by the children’s innovation, creativity and initiative demonstrated through these projects. The range of topics explored during this time is indicative of the different learners in our class; from budding entomologists […]
