Science Fun with Shadows

Grade 4 students had a great time experimenting by drawing their shadows today in order to answer the question “Does the position of a shadow change throughout the course of the day?”

Check with your son or daughter to see what they found out!

Outdoor Classroom Day – Tomorrow September 7!

Muir Lake School will be celebrating Outdoor Classroom Day!  As participants the grade 4s will be doing their learning outside.  Please send your son or daughter prepared for spending the day learning outside.  The weather is apparently going to be hot so sunscreen, hat and perhaps bug spray would be a good idea.  Have them dress for the weather but please know they will be going into the bush on a scavenger hunt.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to email dmaser@psd70.ab.ca

Welcome To Grade 4!

in grade 4.

 

Learning Naturally is our focus in grade 4.  The majority of our learning will be nature based in that we will spend as much time outdoors or in a nature based environment reading, writing, exploring, researching, creating, connecting, & becoming more healthy.  All subject areas will be covered through this natural approach.

Students should be prepared to go outside daily and at a moment’s notice.  Therefore, it is very important that they are prepared daily for the weather.

Please check out “Year at a Glance” page on my blog for more detailed information on areas of study.

Please subscribe to my blog, http://www.psdblogs.ca/dmaser/, as it will be the first line of communication.  Communication between parents, student and teacher is key so feel free to drop me an email at dmaser@psd70.ab.ca or call the school.  

I look forward to meeting students September 5 and don’t forget to come out for the Welcome BBQ on September 13 from 5-7 p.m.

I am very excited to go on this natural journey of learning with you child.

Muir Lake Wins Parkland County Sustainability Award!

We are very proud to announce that Muir Lake has won the Parkland County’s Sustainability Award for all our efforts in composting, recycling, sustainability awareness, learning naturally, nature conservation and awareness, putting up birdhouses, planting trees…..the list goes on.  A special thanks to our student Environmental Team.  Awesome job Muir Lake!  Let’s keep up the great work and look forward to future endeavours.

Learning Naturally – Be Prepared!

The grade 4 classes are diving into learning naturally which means we will be doing our learning in the great outdoors.  Please ensure your child has proper clothing, footwear and especially now BUG SPRAY.  Learning in the natural environment has beneficial learning opportunities that we do not want to miss out on just because of a few mosquitos or the weather.

Thanks for helping your child have an amazing learning experience
