 This fall we studied our 5 senses through the eyes of Helen Keller.  We realized the importance of our senses and how difficult it would be to live without one of more of them.  It was a challenge to write without seeing what we were doing! We enjoyed building a musical instrument that someone like Helen Keller could enjoy.  We were blindfolded and used noise cancelling headphones to test our instruments for vibrations that could be felt through our sense of touch.

Roots of Empathy is a program that was created to assist in developing empathy in young children as they observe a mother and her child interact.  We are so fortunate to have Mr. Brook come in every week to read us stories and discuss our feelings with us.  We see baby Graylen and her mom once a month.  It's always a highlight of our week!

Play is an important part of a child's day.  The students in 1MJ have been working in our class restaurant they call "The Fancy Restaurant".  They use their communication, math, reading and writing skills as they role play at the restaurant.

Families and Southwood staff were invited to our Author Reading and Book Signing event this month!  Students chose the piece of writing that they were the most proud of from the first term, compiled a class book for each family, presented their writing to the audience and signed autographed copies for everyone!

We invited Jordan Driedger (Recreation Programmer - City of Winkler), Ester Funk (high school student with a visual disability) and her teacher to teach us how students with visual disabilities can participate in sports and games at school. The Grade One students learned how to play goal ball, soccer and guide someone through an obstacle course!

In 1SF, we have been using our exploration/science time to play and experiment with using different objects and materials to construct with.  We have made ramps, boats, cars, musical instruments, binocular and all sorts of other things!
