This past month at Sunstone we explored Mi'kmaq culture through literature, art and music. We learned about and made an eight pointed star; did you know that the eight-pointed star is often seen today coloured-in in four different colours: red, black, white and yellow? These four colours together represent harmony and unity between the four races of people. The four colours also represent the four directions – white represents...

We spent the month learning "All about Me". It was a great opportunity to look at genetics, dominant and recessive traits, our organs and the different jobs of our cells.  We also discovered our fingerprint patterns. Charlie thinks learning about his fingerprints is "kinda awesome!".

We incorporated art into our writing and celebrated the best part of who we are. Our outdoor adventures have been so soggy we'...

Schools out for Summer! Our Sunstone team is feeling proud to have survived the learning curve of year one. We are taking away some valuable lessons that the children of Sunstone have taught us. 
The year ended with sadness that we would not see each other for the summer. Our Sunstone village has been built on mutual respect and we certainly feel grateful to have spent the year with our young leaders.
See you in year two!!!!

Our final outdoor days have taken us on many field trips. We have been lucky to explore other people's passions and take the residue of that with us in your hearts. Our goal at Sunstone is to inspire our little ones by being in spaces created from passion. To have the opportunity to recognize the authentic happiness that comes from celebrating your gifts.

When your heart leads to art. A perfect message for the entryway of our classroom. Created by an artist who understands the power of being kind and celebrating each other's differences.

Spring brings new opportunities to be innovative and excited by possibilities. We are ready to get back out into the community and learn new things. We are heading to cook for the residents of the homeless shelter and finish our second art class with our senior partners at Munro Court. We began our Genius hour last week. Children spend an afternoon researching a topic they are interested in and come up with creative ways to pr...

October - Mi'kmaq History Month

November 10, 2018

 

This past month at Sunstone we explored Mi'kmaq culture through literature, art and music. We learned about and made an eight pointed star; did you know that the eight-pointed star is often seen today coloured-in in four different colours: red, black, white and yellow? These four colours together represent harmony and unity between the four races of people. The four colours also represent the four directions – white represents north, black represents south, red represents east and yellow represent west. 

 

Rita Joe was our Leader of the Month, we read her poem "I Lost My Talk" and read stories about the history of residential schools in Canada. We burned sweet grass and sage, and learned about the role of drumming and the drum making process.

 

It rained every Resilient Wednesday! We talked about the surging rivers, the role of water on the earth, we explored tree identification and we PLAYED! Each Wednesday we take a 1.5-2km hike and then enjoy some free play in the forest. We were lucky to have Halloween fall on a Wednesday this year, so we read "Room on the Broom" in the woods and then made our own broomsticks to fly on out of fallen branches we found on the forest floor.
