I just needed to share these photos taken by one of your students at Grouse Mountain last Friday after doing the grind. Happy Face did an amazing job; a natural photographer!
A much more settled day today for all the students. Reading, writing, creating, sharing our learning both on paper and digitally - love to see this kind of learning in action.
Students were introduced to two new digital platforms (well, one for the returning grade 7s). Animoto is a creative slide show/movie making program. The students will be using this to demonstrate how they can represent themselves through images.
Kidblog is a blogging forum that we will be using for our 100 Word Challenges. Most students will get their first creative piece of writing published to a global audience by Saturday!
Animoto.com sign in with email@example.com. Fill in with the number I assigned to you today.

Comment: We have already started to interpret things about Carley and her background from what we have read in the story. The auhtor has given us many hints so that the reader can infer (educated guess) who Carley is as a person. Share two questions you have, wonderings about the story. These could be about Carley, they could be about the other boys or Mrs. Murphy or about the story line. Be sure to clearly explain your thinking and use WRITERS MUMBLE!
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.
