Welcome to our Learning Commons Page
Our Learning Commons is a space which will enhance the learning opportunities of the students at Davidson.
We are so excited to welcome the students back into the Learning Commons space! Students will even get the chance to take library books home this year.
We are striving to develop an inclusive environment that encourages all learners to excel everyday. If you have any questions about what is going on in the learning commons, please do not hesitate to email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Mme. Izzy's message:
Happy Easter/joyeuses Pâques Agnes Davidson families,
It has been an absolute pleasure seeing all the students each week during their book exchange block. I hope your students are enjoying the books they are borrowing. I hope families are taking the time to read together as this is a very important step in developing life long readers and learners.
We had a great challenge this month in Maker Space. Students were given the task of building a "nest" for Horton the Elephant. They had to work in groups that were randomly assigned and create a structure that would allow an elephant to sit on an egg without breaking it. Ask your students what they thought of this activity.
Please continue to help your student(s) to bring back their books each week so that others may enjoy them. Remember that if something happens to your book, it gets lost or damaged, please come see me. Accidents happen and forgiveness is always shown when students come and explain what happened.
Check out the links below to continue the discussions/activities we have at school, at home.
Monsieur Steve is at it again sharing some French vocab about Easter:
Here is the full read aloud of the book that our maker space activity was based on the last two weeks:
