Students have done an excellent job keeping busy during the great number of indoor recesses we have had in January and February. When the temperatures drop colder than -25 or a wind chill factor of -28, students remain indoors. Though staying inside for the two forty minute nutrition breaks can be fun, we are all looking forward to warmer temperatures and outdoor play!
Grade 2, 4, 5, and 7 teachers are working with three other Barrie schools co-planning, co-teaching and moderating the assessment of math lessons that focus on problem solving. Our teachers are designing these lessons that also embed multiple choice questions. Student exposure to multiple choice questions in preparation for EQAO; teacher focus on the consolidation of lessons, prioritize problem solving over independent practice of an isolated skill. This project began in January and will continue next week.
