It feels like a real Spring Break for me now. The weekend just felt like a weekend. Monday felt like maybe a long weekend. Today I noticed that things were really different. I'm not doing anything too major, or going anywhere fancy, but am definitely enjoying some free time. I'm really just hoping to enjoy the extra time to play around with my boys. We have had some extra playground time and have visited with some friends - just things we never really have enough time to do normally. I've started teaching Jon (my oldest) how to play Super Mario games. We started with Super Mario Brothers for the Wii, mainly for reason that we can all play at the same time (and the surprise bonus feature that I can use Mario to pick up other characters, so I can carry Jon through the harder parts of some of the levels). Not too sure about what we will do for the rest of the break, but I will keep you posted. How have the first few days been treating all of you? Any ideas for things I should do with Jonny and Zack?
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.
