Knights, Readers, Tweeters and Pre-Schoolers

Students in the Vanier Learning Commons have their own Twitter account. Follow us @VanierLC to see what we are up to. Here’s a sample:

Take a look at these great reading areas in the Vanier Learning Commons. It’s enough to make you want to snuggle up and read a book!


This week we were pleased to host the Strong Start program for some fun activities with the pre-schoolers and their families. We read some stories, we counted, we sang and we shared puzzles on the iPads. Yahoo!

Be impressed! These Grade 1 and 2 students are learning to independently digitally show their learning. Students were able to locate apps, use in-app cameras to take a selfie, design a knights helmet (complete with the king’s colours), export to the camera roll and upload to Dropbox. Great work.
