Have a great March break, everyone!

Here’s a message from Mr. Hope of Australia:

“Mrs Theriault, Thank you so much for encouraging your students to contact the wonderful young bloggers of LA19. The students were thrilled to receive messages from Canada and have enjoyed planning their comments to post on your students’ blogs. The whole process has been very inspirational, especially for my first time bloggers. Kind regards – Mr. Hope”

Nightmare At School (Catherine Arcand, 2007) | Response to video

Catherine Arcands’s film Nightmare at School is about elementary students’ fears as they approach secondary school.
Surrealism is a style or movement in which various real objects are combined in a fantastical (or even magical) way.

The Three Simple Steps To Take Over Your Blog!

For my Grade 6 students   :-)

Here’s what to do if you’d like to keep your blog for yourself.

1. Ask your parents for permission first.

2. Ask your parents to email me using the email that will be used to register the blog. This is the email address where they will receive updates whenever you post AND be able to moderate your comments.

3. Once I have parental permission and the email address, we’ll set up the blog from school.
