Jerseys and Kodable

Today everyone in school participated in National Jersey Day. We borrowed some Stevenson Sabres Jerseys to wear for the picture. Some kids wore their own jerseys. Everyone gathered in the gym, and we stood in the shape of a jersey for the photo.

Mrs. Lowe visited our class today and introduced us to the Kodable app. Kodable is a great app available for free on iTunes. Students worked together in pairs on the iPads. They used code to instruct a cute little fuzz ball through a maze, while trying to collect as many coins as possible. Every couple minutes the partners switched to ensure everyone got a turn directing the fuzz ball through the maze. During last period, some of us showed our reading buddies how to play Kodable. One Grade 5 boy liked it so much that he said he was going to go home and download the app onto his iPad!

Sharing time... something that starts with a /n/ sound.
A new sharing schedule will be sent home on Monday. We were having printer problems at school today, so Mrs. Grant couldn't print the new schedule. If you want to start searching for next week's sharing item... we will be talking about things that start with /Dd/.... as in "December" !!!  Happy searching.
