This morning instead of having our usual Friday morning community read Ms. Lirenman opened our classroom early and provided breakfast treats for us and our families. It was a way to celebrate all of our successes of the term. The room was a buzz of reading, chatting, smiles, and giggles. Parents, grandparents and uncles too had the chance to meet each other in a comfortable environment. Our principal even stopped by. We shared our book box books as well as some of our favourite iPad books and reading websites. It was a wonderful way to start the last day of the 2014 school year. Here are some photos from this morning.

Last night Ms. Lirenman read a great blogpost that encouraged her to ask us what we are reading. Today some of us added what we are reading to this padlet so the rest of the class could see. We had a bit of technical difficulties this time around but a few of us were able to talk about the books we were reading today. Here are some of the books we are reading this week.

They live in here.

On Friday after music we were scheduled to have a Mystery Number Skype with a class in Texas. Unfortunately during music the power in the school went off, and this included our access to the school internet. Since we couldn't use Skype Ms. Lirenman had to quickly think of a different way we could make the connection work.
Ms. Lirenman decided that we would try to use Voxer a walkie talk, text messaging type app. She contacted the teacher in Texas and we were off.
With Voxer you can leave little messages (in our case we left questions about numbers) and then they can leave little answers for us. We went back and forth asking and answering questions. In the end we were able to guess their secret number and they were able to guess our. Here's what it sounded like.

Wow! What a show! This afternoon and this evening we wowed our audiences in our perfornace of Melton the Warm Hearted Snowman. The show included all the kindergarten to grade three students in both French and English. It was a huge success with a lot of thanks going to Mr. Johnson our music teacher. Here is one photo from our morning concert as we were singing Tough Love with Mme Kell's, Mme Douwes', and Ms. Swenson's classes. Unfortunately Ms. Lirenman had to fuzz out the students in those classes because she doesn't have permission for them to be on our blog. But she did her best to keep us clear. We are in the row second from the top.
