Rilynn was chosen as IREC's January Student of the Month. She was recognized at the assembly today and given a certificate and some gifts. Rilynn has been working hard on her assignments and also with her friends, in and out of the classroom. Her smile makes 3SB a better place to be! Congratulations, Rilynn. You deserve it!
On Monday we finished our third and final Alien in-line skating session. We learned about putting on safety gear, getting up with rollerblades on, braking and other skating moves. Our coach Josh was really friendly and helpful. We hope to do this again next year!
3SB, what was your favourite part of in-line skating?
In December our class started a Holiday Card Exchange. First we made cards on our Chromebooks using Loupe Collage. Loupe Collage makes a big picture with little images. For example, some of us made candy cane using little images of scarves, mittens and toques. Then we had a lot of snow days so they had to be finished quickly and sent all over North America. Then we got a few cards in the mail before Christmas holidays. They were all from different parts of the United States. Afterwards we opened them and pinned them on our board. It has a map to show where the cards came from. After the holidays we got a lot of cards in the mail. It was exciting when we opened the cards and read about temperatures, different kinds of schools, how many boys and girls in classrooms, interesting facts about their schools, the teachers' names, and about their communities! Now we are looking on Google Maps to find their locations and interesting places. This is a great way to learn about different countries and communities in Social Studies!
