Last Thursday was Games Day. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate at all. It was pouring rain! But instead of cancelling the day, the teachers modified the activities so we had it INSIDE instead.
Here are some photos from our games day.

This past week Ms. Lirenman was in Texas at a conference called ISTE. One of the things she brought with her to the conference was the global scrapbook we have been working on. She passed it on to a teacher from Australia. Here are some pictures of the pages we added to the global scrapbook.

Back in May we each wrote letters to students in Guatemala. Last week Ms.Lirenman heard that our letters arrived safely but nothing had arrived for us. Ms. Lirenman was starting to get a little worried too because she was leaving us a week early to head to a conference in Texas. If you can believe it they arrived on Ms. L'S very last day with us. It was a games day too so we had very little time together as a while class. Here are some photos of us reading our letters and wearing our special gifts.

Today we spent the day at Crescent Beach. Before we left school we reviewed our wonders about the beach with the hope that we would find answers to our wonders while we were there.
Lucky for us it was perfect beach weather too, sunny and warm but not too warm. Here are some photos of our day.

On Friday we met as a group and talked about all the successes we've had as a class this year. We talked about how in September we really didn't know one another since we had come from five different Kindergarten classes but how we have developed into a school family. We care a lot about one another and we are there for each other.
For the past few years Ms. Lirenman has held a year end award ceremony to celebrate our year of success. On Friday we helped her prepare for this years ceremony. You see she isn't the only one that gives out awards, we all do. In fact we are all going to receive four awards, one from Ms. L, and three from our classmates. We created the classmate awards.
Before we helped create awards we talked about how they needed to be specific to the person on the award. It was also stressed that they needed to be kept a secret until the actual ceremony next week. This activity allowed us to think about our classmates and the many ways we are so proud of one another.
Here are a few photos of us in our secret spots writing up awards for our classmates.
Here are a few of the awards we wrote. We can't tell you who they are for yet though but you can see that we did try to write awards specific to a classmate. There are many more awards. 20 +20 + 20 + 20 = ? That is how many awards altogether.

As you know we have been working on a special collaborative writing project with Mrs. van Rees's grade one class in Ontario. We co created little book movies inspired by the book Good New Bad News. Yesterday we were suppose to connect through video conferencing but things didn't work as they were suppose to. Today we tried again but again things didn't work.
Ms. Lirenman and Mrs. van Rees put on their thinking caps and changed plans and set up a room in Today's Meet. The first three groups were able to chat back and forth in the room. While it isn't quite the same as hearing their voices and seeing their faces it was at least a way that we could still connect. Hopefully we can connect the rest of the students before the school year is over.

Ms. Lirenman and Mrs. Morrison had planned for us to use the scoops outside on the school field but when we went to get the scoops we realized we didn't quite have enough for two classes. So they decided to change the focus to scoops and hoops. There were 10 groups of four and each group had three scoops, one ball, and one hoop. One person had to hula hoop while the other students passed the ball around the circle (triangle?). If they couldn't catch the ball with their scoop they switched places with the person with the hula hoop. The game was a lot of fun. We all managed to hula hoop some and toss and catch some too. Here's what it looked like.
