Learning Commons News

Check out the snazzy new design of the Vanier Learning Commons website.

In the LC we have been reading ‘Sometimes I Feel like a Fox’ by Danielle Daniel. We made connections using Coast Salish designs for our follow-up activity and students made the link between the animals, the text and identifying their own varying emotions, strengths and feelings.IMG_6210.JPG

Students learned about using QR Codes. We decorated the LC with Valentine’s Day hearts and used the codes to check out some of the work other classes had been completing. Take a look at the lesson here and see some of our great student videos at Vanier on Video.
