What a gorgeous afternoon it turned out to be to take our kites outside for their first test run. I was very impressed with how well division 1 helped their little buddies (and sometimes it was the reverse) to get their kites built and ready to go. By the time the 2:37 bell went, the kids were still wanting to stay out on the field to keep the kites up in the air.
1) LA - Journal writing - spend 15 minutes , or more if you want, and complete a journal entry. You may want to write on the kite flying experience or on something of your own choice.
2) Wallwisher - still missing 7 questions on the wallwisher site. One student has anonymous so I can not mark it as being done. Please ensure you post a deep thinking question around the book The One and Only Ivan.
2) Band tomorrow.
3) Spend some time on your websites upgrading, adding details, being creative. Remember to check out other class websites to see how to improve.
4) Check out the onlyivan website to see what conversations are happening. Can you add to them and develop other's thinking?
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
