So much amazing learning again today. Gathering evidence of our learning and putting this together on a portfolio helps us realize where we started and where we ended up. It is important for all (parents and students) to recognize the learning that has taken place, the improvements that have been made rather than just judging by a final grade. The students of division one are embracing this and recognizing that the learning needs to be the focus, and needs to be celebrated! Students put together a compilation of their learning with our writing unit. They now each have evidence of where they have improved and where growth still needs to occur. Our Evernote sites have been great for this.
We also spent time today improving our Digital Stories on iMOvie. Yesterday we developed criteria and today students had a chance to improve their work. I am impressed with how much growth occurred in two days.
1) LA - respond to the question I post under 'Reflection of Learning'.
2) Continue to take photos for the imovies.
3) Socials - bring an article to school that can be used to complete a summary sheet.
4) Those who have not created a new post in LA E-Portfolio with your fall write and the learning intentions please do so tonight. Many of your peers have completed this already so have a look at their LA section.
1) Bring your skating gear tomorrow. The rink is cold so be prepared and dress warmly (gloves are always a good idea). Helmets are mandatory.

3) Christmas Hamper Drive and Toonie drive - all to support the less fortunate families in Cloverdale.
4) Castle Fun Park Notices due next week - field trip date is Friday, Dec. 7
5) Hot Lunch notices
