St. David school hosts aspiring teacher

December 15, 2014 - Mrs. Turner's Grade 2/3 class at St David welcomed Lakehead (Orillia's Campus) student teacher, Rebecca Hamilton into our classroom for the past 5 weeks.

In this art piece, Mrs. Hamilton taught the students how to tint the colour blue by mixing in white paint to give the effect of lighter to darker blue starting with the white circle in the middle of the art piece. The white circle is significant in many ways. "We spoke to the students about how God's love for us is never ending; just like the advent wreath in the shape of a circle. His love is continuous and never ending." said Hamilton.

Adding the silhouette of the Manger Scene to such a beautiful art piece is absolutely stunning. The students “awed” as they were putting all its pieces together. One student was heard saying, “This is beautiful”. The bright yellow star brought in discussions about geometric polygons when the students were observing Mrs. Hamilton draw one on the blackboard. “I see a pentagon, if you join the points around the star,” said one student. “I see lots of triangles inside the star,” said another. “I see an upside pentagon in the middle of the star!” A clear indication that the geometric unit just completed was successful!!

Christmas is such a special and important time for us in Catholic schools as it brings us right back to our core beliefs. "My students love hearing the Christmas Story read to them year after year. They love learning about the advent wreath, the candles and all that it symbolizes. It is a time to reflect upon patience, peace, love, joy, and Jesus…the true reason for the season! I think this art piece demonstrates this message beautifully." Said Mrs Turner.

Great job, Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs Turner and Grade 2/3's!!
