I spent this morning at Tecumseh being incredibly impressed by the lengths the school's teachers will go to make learning fun for their students. Today they held a "Primary Olympic Rotation", where all the students from JK through Grade 3 went from classroom to classroom to learn a bit about some of the countries participating in the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympic Games. In "Italy" they made a pizza craft and listened to Italian music, in "France" they learned and sung French folk songs, in "Greece" they got a quick history lesson about the Olympic Games and made a paper torch... it was lots of fun for everyone (including me!) Events like this are part of what makes Tecumseh such a wonderful place to learn, and motivate Sophie to want to be at school each day.
