After reading Encounter and learning about the history surrounding this event, why do you think it’s important that we hear the boys point of view in the story? Explain your thinking using examples from the text and your own ideas.
It took some time, but here is our video recap of our class visit to Kingfisher Outdoor Centre. Thanks to all the staff for making it such a wonderful experience!
Our class just spent a 3 day residential trip at Kingfisher Outdoor Centre and had an amazing time cross country skiing. As a class we decided to write a recount based on that day. Enjoy.
Our class has been studying the Seven Grandfather teachings and our focus this week has been on Truth. As part of this focus we looked the story of Glooskap and Maslom. These brothers, and the wolverine all lied and told the truth within the story. We learned that telling the truth isn’t always easy and can cause problems.
Students were asked to respond to this question: Why does telling the truth cause troubles at times? Describe a time when you experienced problems in telling the truth.
As a wrap up to our Media Literacy unit we decided to create iMovie trailers about St. James. The goal was to create an exciting trailer that promoted St. James and would persuade a target audience to join us at here at our wonderful school.
Enjoy the finished products. 🙂
Today I would like you to write a letter to Santa. Please make sure to use proper letter format. Also, don’t just ask for stuff. Let him know if you’ve been bad or good and some other news about you and your life. Don’t forget to ask him questions as well. Remember it’s not just about asking for an xbox or a iphone, ask for help for more than just you.
I’m looking forward to reading your letters.
