Division 1 made another new connection through Mystery SKype. This time we went to the very east coast of the USA to Brookfield, Connecticut. The students are excited to figure out where these students live and are hoping to connect with schools in Canada and other countries such as Mexico and Columbia.
In Language Arts created their first google doc of the year to type up their Flying Bob review. The next step is to use the self assessment sheet to check their writing to see which criteria has been met and which needed work. After this has been students students will make the necessary revisions prior to their peers given them feedback. So much learning within one small writing assignment.

Comments: From the current book you are reading, what is one lesson you have learned? The book I am currently reading, The Forgotten Garden, I have learned that it is important to let those things that happened in the past not affect the future. All the sorrow and sadness can be remembered but must not control how we live our lives. What lesson(s) have you learned?
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.
