Thanks Tweetiegal for posting our homework on Friday. We will now have students reporting daily and giving homework and home study reminders to their classmates.
PHOTOS on Monday.
Parents: A newsletter dated Oct. 3 went home and I have only received 7 parent letters to be on the class parent contact list. Please ask your child to return the purple form to me asap. If you need another, your child can ask for one on Monday. If we do not hear from you by Wednesday, we will assume you do not wish to be on the contact list.
We are going to start a mini photography unit combined with writing. If you have your own camera, please bring it to school for Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you have an extra 4 minutes to view this video, please do.

Many of you are aware of the very disturbing and heart-wrenching story of Amanda Todd who took her own life last Wednesday after continuous physical and verbal attacks. Please discuss this with your parents and we will continue the conversation in class on Monday.
Remember when we were discussing the 'friendly' competition for a chance to skype with the author of Ivan? Well we have a couple of tricks up our sleeve to try to make this happen. One thing we are doing is putting together a montage of class pictures of all teachers involved in reading 'One and Only Ivan." Did you know that about 2/3 of our school is reading this novel?
I want your input Div. 2. What should our class picture look like? eg. Do we want to hold up our favourite quotes? message for the author? stand behind signs of our favourite character?
Please give your ideas on this comment page. We are doing this Monday so needs to be easy to prepare.
I am going to email you a document that we can share. The purpose is to generate all the questions we have about The One and Only Ivan. Think about questions you think the characters or author have answered already. Do you have any good questions for the author Katherine Applegate? She has said she will choose the most interesting questions to answer personally. Wouldn't that be cool! What makes a good (effective) question? We have started some eg. If you could save a character, who would it be? Should there be zoos?
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment. We would love to find out more about you:)
