Lucky for us it was perfect beach weather too, sunny and warm but not too warm. Here are some photos of our day.

On Friday we met as a group and talked about all the successes we've had as a class this year. We talked about how in September we really didn't know one another since we had come from five different Kindergarten classes but how we have developed into a school family. We care a lot about one another and we are there for each other.
For the past few years Ms. Lirenman has held a year end award ceremony to celebrate our year of success. On Friday we helped her prepare for this years ceremony. You see she isn't the only one that gives out awards, we all do. In fact we are all going to receive four awards, one from Ms. L, and three from our classmates. We created the classmate awards.
Before we helped create awards we talked about how they needed to be specific to the person on the award. It was also stressed that they needed to be kept a secret until the actual ceremony next week. This activity allowed us to think about our classmates and the many ways we are so proud of one another.
Here are a few photos of us in our secret spots writing up awards for our classmates.
Here are a few of the awards we wrote. We can't tell you who they are for yet though but you can see that we did try to write awards specific to a classmate. There are many more awards. 20 +20 + 20 + 20 = ? That is how many awards altogether.

As you know we have been working on a special collaborative writing project with Mrs. van Rees's grade one class in Ontario. We co created little book movies inspired by the book Good New Bad News. Yesterday we were suppose to connect through video conferencing but things didn't work as they were suppose to. Today we tried again but again things didn't work.
Ms. Lirenman and Mrs. van Rees put on their thinking caps and changed plans and set up a room in Today's Meet. The first three groups were able to chat back and forth in the room. While it isn't quite the same as hearing their voices and seeing their faces it was at least a way that we could still connect. Hopefully we can connect the rest of the students before the school year is over.

Ms. Lirenman and Mrs. Morrison had planned for us to use the scoops outside on the school field but when we went to get the scoops we realized we didn't quite have enough for two classes. So they decided to change the focus to scoops and hoops. There were 10 groups of four and each group had three scoops, one ball, and one hoop. One person had to hula hoop while the other students passed the ball around the circle (triangle?). If they couldn't catch the ball with their scoop they switched places with the person with the hula hoop. The game was a lot of fun. We all managed to hula hoop some and toss and catch some too. Here's what it looked like.

Today we skyped with Charlotte at Skype. We asked her many questions and she answered them. Then she took as on a tour of her office. Did you know it doesn't have very many walls. We even went on the roof of the building. Thank you Charlotte for skyping with us. We love learning with Skype.
