Welcome

Hey guys!



As I am sure you have heard, due to Swine Flu, we will not be at school for at least a week. Since we know that you are dying to stay connected and continue with your school work, we have set up this blog as a way for all of us to continue our work of building communities, in “real” life, and now online.

This works out perfectly because we had planned to begin creating these online spaces for learning before these recent events, now we will work from necessity.

For the next few days, we will be posting lessons and ideas that we wish to share with you here on this blog Our hope is that you will check in at least once a day and leave comments so we know you have been here. This will be our way of taking the register.

Sometimes we will ask you to watch a video, look at images or read text and comment in the section below. Leaving a comment is simple. Follow the directions below. Find the link that says No Comments or 7 Comments and click it.

  28. I've found a great websight for our school to go on for maths. its a combanation of games and work it is not to challengeing and not to easy it would be good if the school got it. The websight is called study island and it would be great if one of the teachers would check it out at some point
