We have been studying the Arctic - the people, the animals, the climate. This week we watched the Magic School Bus Goes to the Arctic and learned how animals keep warm in such an extreme environment. Then we experimented ourselves with insulating materials simulating fur and blubber (don't worry - no animals were harmed during our experiment!) Look at the Arctic webpage if you would like to see the video and activity page.
This is my fourth year as a District Behaviour Support and Intervention teacher with the New Westminster School District. My focus is on students who are having serious challenges with self-regulation across many domains - biological, emotional, cognitive, social and prosocial - at school, at home and in the community. My role is to provide support to teachers and teams to create an environment for success for the student.
