Get Stuffed!

Students are taking ownership of the Learning Commons by bringing in a plush toy to ‘Stuff the LC’. There are lots of warm fuzzes in here. Stuffies will be hanging about the LC for about 2 weeks. Please label with your name and division.

Some Grade 3s used Explain Everything App to show our learning about Mo Willem’s book ‘Knuffle Bunny Free’. Here’s a sample:

Some Grade ones tried using Pic Collage App to show their beginning explorations of the parts of a plant and how to make a labelled diagram.

On Friday the Learning Commons was filled with learners! Ms. Dhaliwal’s 5/6 class used Grafio App and designed and blogged promotional posters for their Power Play projects. Meanwhile the Grade 1s used 5 different types of manipulatives to figure out which was the best for building a structure.There were pros and cons for each but the foam squares won out.
