As you know, the format of our classes changed this spring. Our teachers did an amazing job of transitioning to an online teaching format and the children adapted quickly to Zoom, which was a new communication tool to many of them. Zoom technology was a gift to us! Using Zoom provided unique opportunities for the children to share their home lives with one another as they engaged in show & tell and scavenger hunts. The wonderful community we have developed continued to be evident through the changes. It was a joy to be able to continue to see each others’ faces, pray for each other, hear from each other, and to finish the year in celebration.
The focus in Abbotsford Community Classes during the last term was Language Arts. Children engaged in author studies, novel readings, and short story units. It was a blessing to see them share projects and dress up as their favourite book character. The creativity flowed and they designed some amazing creations!
