I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support throughout the year. It has been a pleasure working with you this year and I wish everyone a safe and happy summer. Enjoy!

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher;
the tools she used were books
and music and art;
One was a parent with a guiding hand
and a gentle loving heart.

And when at last their work was done
They were proud of what they had wrought,
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought.

And each agreed they would have failed,
If they had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home.

Primary Fun Day

We had a great time on Primary Fun Day! Enjoy!

When Mr. Peterson Retires........

2F students are really excited about a book we made for Mr. Peterson, the GECDSB Computer Consultant who works with us on the SMART Board project. Mr. Peterson will be retiring at the end of this school year and will be sadly missed by GECDSB employees and students. He has been a great source of inspiration for me throughout my own journey of embedding current technology into my classroom routines.
Mr. Peterson stopped by for a final visit and we presented the book to him. He then posted our book on his own blog, which currently has about 60,000 hits. 2F has become famous.
This is a link to Mr. Peterson's blog and to our video. Enjoy!

Map & Globe Unit

My apologies for not blogging as of late. We have been so busy, we have forgotten.
But........ we're back!
During the past couple of weeks we have been working on a unit called Map & Globe Skills. We have learned all about the seven continents, the four oceans, the equator, parts of a map like the key and legend, the differences between maps and globes, direction and even how to read the coordinates of a map.
Here are some fun links to try at home.
