These Are the Games We Play - Part 1


Last week and this week, we have been recording ourselves demonstrating how to play some of the games we play at school.  This is part of our Flat Classroom Project and they will eventually be shared with our New Zealand buddies in Ms. Boyd's class.  We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we have enjoyed making them.

Storybird

About a month ago I introduced the students to a program called Storybird.  It allows students to choose illustrations created by various artists and then write a story about the pictures.  This has been highly motivating for them and many have continued their stories at home.  Some have even collaborated with siblings or other family members.  Below is just one of the many stories written so far. If you would like to see others, click the Our Storybird tab at the top of the page.  Please leave a comment if you enjoy a story or have any questions, we would love to hear from you!

Ms. Rempel and Ms. Nairn both went to the farm to get the chick eggs so we could have them in our classroom for a pet.  Ms. Rempel got to keep them in her classroom and we get to go to her class sometimes, or Ms. Nairn will take a chick.  First Ms. Nairn will tell us to go in a boy girl pattern.  Then she will bring around the chick and we will get to feel the chick and soon we will get to hold it. - Rory
In science we found out that one of the baby chicks did not come out of its egg. - Dylan
