I wanted to apologize for the disruption in flow of our weekly homework. My classroom computer has been broken for over three weeks and it is the only computer in my class that is set up to a printer. I am at the whim of using the computer in the French classroom but I don’t always have the same convenient access as my classroom computer. I will send home math fraction practice tomorrow. The students also have their Reading at Home project due in June that they can be preparing for as well.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Ms. Seymour

Rocks & Minerals Scavenger Hunt

This afternoon we raced around the school solving 18 questions about Rocks and Minerals. We were quiet and respectful of others classes learning and we worked collaboratively and loved getting some wiggly jigglies out while learning. Daily movement incorporated into our learning is so beneficial. Just another way we ensure a flexible learning environment.

Singing Bowl Hum

We have used a singing bowl to ring in our mindful breathing during our mindfulness practice all year. Ms. Sablone brings her own bowl on Wednesdays and recently she learned how to make her bowl hum. She shared this with us last month.

Some students were eager to try with our class singing bowl. R.P. Was the first to try and she was successful on her first attempt. She can’t wait to show Ms. Sablone in perso RD and JH also enjoyed making it hum.

Class Project: Physical Activities and Leisure Activities We Enjoy Video

We have been working on this video project Second term. The students have used a lot of technology to capture a snapshot project of their physical activity and leisure activities interests. They also had been learning about Canada’s guidelines for physical activity and sedentary activity and how they relate to their daily living.

They have created two media texts to showcase their knowledge:

1) a Google Slides presentation

2) A Video- using i-Movie, iPhone video recorder, DoInks Greenscreen App, Voice recorder, PicCollage, Garage Band, MusicJam, and Launchpad.

The video they’ve created is below. Get some popcorn it’s long. We are proud of it. Hope you enjoy it…even the music in it was created by them. They seem to love making techno tunes.

Thank you to parents for sending in videos and pictures from home. We appreciate your ongoing support of our class projects.



Bake sale this week

Some of our Westmount Atom Hockey girls wanted to show their support and had a Bake-a-thon. All items will be sold at recess tomorrow. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Go Fund Me campaign in support of those involved with this enormous tragedy.
