Virtual AcadeCamp: Summer at the Art Gallery

1122 0

This week, students at AcadeCamp have been busy learning about Pat Lipsky. Inspired by her paintings, campers learned about arrays and multiplication, along with number patterns and sequences.

Below is a picture of an “Array City.” Each building has windows using different arrays to express a multiplication number sentence.

Using the Fibonacci sequence, students set out on a nature scavenger hunt to find the pattern in nature. Some campers even used the sequence to write a poem!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
