It Looked Like Spilt (Chocolate) Milk

Recently we have read the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw with Ms Cassidy-Harlock and Ms Batusic’s grade 1 classes.

We were inspired to create our own versions of the book using Pixie 3, but with a little twist.  Here is our take on it:

Thank you to all the wonderful Floradale volunteers for coming to our annual Volunteer Appreciation Tea Reception.  It was great to mingle and enjoy some good food and conversation.  There were many requests for the refreshing punch recipes, so by popular demand here they are, in addition to some pictures of our time together.

Grade 6 (and some 5) anti-bullying projects

A couple of months ago I challenged my grade 6 (and the 5/6 split) classes to create a presentation or project with an anti-bullying theme.  They were allowed to use any software they wished in order to capture their audience and serve their purpose.  Some chose to use programs they were very familiar with, some challenged themselves by using Scratch (a programing software) that I gave them only a brief introduction to, and others used software that we had not used in class at all.  Here are some examples of what they came up with:

Eshan and Abhinav's project
Brooj and Ishu's project
Sathushan and Sajeev's project
Seif's project

Kindergarten Alphabet Books

Our youngest students have been working really hard on completing their pages to add to their class’ Alphabet Book. They used the drawing tools in Pixie 3 to draw the first letter of their names. Next, they used the text tool to type out their name in full. Finally, they looked through the sticker library in Pixie 3 to find items that start with the same letter as their name and pasted them onto their page. Have a look, they did a great job.  This one is by students from Ms Ford and Ms Price’s kindergarten class:
