September 2013

In 3 more days, we’ll be back in school with students! This year, we’ve had some changes in our class split grades. We have a large group of students in Gr. 1-3, so this year my class will be a Gr. 4/5 split. For the last 4 years, I’ve taught Gr. 5/6. I’m excited to teach new subjects from the Gr. 4 curriculum and to have an entirely new group of students! Soon after the students start back, our class will be taking part in a global classroom project called, “It’s a small world”. Through Twitter, blogging, and Skyping, our students will be able to connect with other students and teachers from around the world! I’m looking forward to Skyping with a class in New Zealand in the next couple of weeks. New Zealand will be the farthest distance from SK that we’ll have ever Skyped with! I can’t wait to share the news with my class. Here’s to a fantastic year and many connections with others!
