Horizons at Westminster
This first week began with good friends meeting up again after a long year of virtual learning. Morning meetings were always full of exciting activities such as hot potato, name game and relay races. Mr. G was in charge of the fun morning meeting activities. We checked in with our feelings and discussed ways to maintain our sunny outlooks. Math was always a blast. We learned that there are many ways to represent numbers. Mr. G taught adding and subtracting and showed the students that math can be fun!!
We took an interesting nature walk on Thursday. We saw turkey vultures and hawks gliding across the sky looking for yummy meals. We took a walk through a “forest” and noticed chipmunks, squirrels and other forest creatures. We collected leaves and conducted an investigation about the leaves we collected later on in the afternoon. Wow! Who knew there are so many kinds of leaves? We shared our observations and claims about what we knew about leaves. This week we discovered that learning is fun and challenging. We can’t wait to see what is in store for us in the next five weeks of this wonderful Horizons learning adventure.
