Artists in the Schools

The students of MES had a wonderful time “painting stories” with our guest artist Leigh-Anne. They learned how telling a story is just like creating a work of art, but instead of painting on a canvas, we paint stories on the air, through movement, play and the spoken word. Each class created an original story with Leigh-Anne and got to share that story with other classes. What a great time our learners had; laughing, learning and creating. Thanks Leigh-Anne!

MES Deeper Learning In Nature

“Time in nature is not leisure time; it’s an essential investment in our children’s health…”  Richard Louv

Last January, our Kindergarten classes began a snow inquiry. We wondered about snow, read about snow, played outside in the snow and even experimented with snow in the classroom.  As Kindergarten teachers, we decided that it would be fun to celebrate our inquiry with a day spent in the snow at Mitchell Park.  This was a new environment for our students to explore.  As a class, we brainstormed a plan for our time at the park.  Our students had great ideas about how to spend our time including making snowmen, looking for animal tracks in the snow and exploring in the bush. Everyone, including our parent volunteers, loved our day at the park so much that we wound up planning a second winter park day.
