We have made it to the first weekend! Things haven't exactly been busy, but we have been having a lot of fun. While still sunny, we went on scooter rides to the playground and played hockey outside. Since it cooled down a bit, we have gone to the library, fed the ducks, watched Star Wars for the first time and done some art. Zack has just recently started to draw more than scribbles. In fact, The picture of the face with a beard was the first person he has ever drawn! But do not be fooled into thinking it is a beard! It is not. That is the shirt. And the two lines underneath? Those are his legs! It's really cool how little kids interpret things when they draw. Of course, Zack drew a picture of me - I think he nailed the hair! Jon drew a couple pictures as well and it shocks me how much better at art he is than I was at his age and older. Practice makes perfect I guess, and he is drawing all the time! I hope you are all having a fun time on your break. Including the rest of today - 10 days left!!! See you all soon!
This Blog will provide updates on what is happening in the classroom, as well as a small peak into the life of the teacher outside of school.
Welcome Students and Parents of Division 7!
I hope that this will be a place where we can better open the lines of communication between myself, the students and the parents/guardians. I also hope to use this space as part of my general encouragement to use various forms of technology to help us learn in different and meaningful ways.
