This week in the Learning Commons, students in Grades 1, 2 and 3 completed projects using the Pic Collage App and the Showme App. The goal was to encourage students to look at the details in picture books and to recognize how the illustrator showed the emotions of the characters in the stories.

Students working in the Learning Commons have been sharing their learning on class blogs. Students have been researching about birds from books, apps, and on-line. We have been using the iPads to draw some colourful nests and illustrating stories. Students have also created anti-bullying slogans. Check the student blogs to see what we have been up to lately.
The message from Division 7 is ‘Put Up, not Put Down’. In the Learning Commons we have been discussing the power of ‘Paying it Forward’ and how one small act of kindness can have a ripple effect. Students designed posters and kicked off their kindness campaign to help students understand the power of put ups. This was not a one time event and students will be encouraging others to join their project. Check out their blogs here
