There are some great pictures of Mrs. Hourigan's Division 5 students displaying their "Expert Projects," on Flickr Photostream. There are also a few pictures of Ms. Moul's Division 10 class finishing up at the end of the day.

Until tomorrow.

blog issues

I am currently having issues loading photos to my blog. I was in Ms. Kranenburg's class earlier today and took some pictures of students preparing to film their commercials. I will put them on the Flickr Photostream for now.

Until later.

Socials and Journal Writing

Researching Afghanistan.

The flag of Afghanistan.

Journal Writing in Ms. Taylor's class.

More journal writing.

Mrs. Fitchell's students were researching Afghanistan on the laptops when I stopped by today, while Ms. Taylor's students were doing some journal writing-- note the pictures which are done first, with lots of colours, before they start their writing.

Looking for the Cancuks to Win

Ms. Taylor's class has been using the Vancouver-Chicago series as a Math exercise.  Hopefully they will be able to continue with this after tonight's game.

We went through Jasper on our way to Edmonton this weekend-- the views were spectacular!

I have had a busy time in Edmonton moving furniture etc. and it is now time for the return journey.

I hope that everyone has had a nice weekend of family time.

Until Tuesday.
