Happy Diwali to all of our families that celebrated this weekend and Happy Halloween to any of our families celebrating Halloween tonight! Today we started our day with a review of our 12x tables. Usually, today would have been our Kahoot! quiz for our 12x tables, but our internet was working this morning so we played the Noisy Game to help us practice instead. We'll play Kahoot! tomorrow morning.
We also got some new letters from our pen pals - our new pen pals. We have already been writing to our pen pals in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, we also have pen pals in Sexsmith, Alberta. Today we opened our first letters from these new pen pals. These students are from a small farming community outside of Grande Prairie. Our class was amazed at the number of animals these students own: horses, cows, chickens, etc. We can't wait to write back! How wonderful to be making so many new friends across Canada this year! This is the most pen pals I've ever written to with a class, and I think two classes is our limit, but the students are always really excited to read letters from and send letters to their pen pals.
Students also worked together in groups to create their healthy Halloweed inspired treats today. Thank you so much for all of the generosity from families in supplying our ingredients! Our treats turned out great. Some of them were a lot harder to put together than we initially thought, but they turned out great. Each groups was unique and delicious!
Continuing our technology woes from this morning, we couldn't seem to get "A Series of Unfortunate Events" to play on my system today. We watched "Zootopia" instead. I will investigate further and we will reschedule a day to watch Lemony Snicket, I promise. Thank you for your patience everyone.
