I've still got that "New Graduate" smell.

I attended MUN Convocation on Friday, for what was a very sincere, entertaining ceremony. It was attended by Chancellor Rick Hillier, Premier Williams, the new president of MUN and many doting parents and friends. A great time was had by all, and I can't wait to go frame-shopping for my crisp new diploma.

This week we will be continuing with our Drama in Education program, as we embark on the voyage to Newfoundland. These stages will incorporate mapping skills and math concepts to a large degree, as well as listening to and analyzing some traditional sea shanties and recitations in English Language Arts. The class will have a few assignments to do some research at home throughout the week, a task they seem to be enjoying. 

Book Reports will be presented on November 1st now, instead of the 28th. The flurry of activity and divided attention around Hallowe'en required this move, and it also gives students one last weekend to work on the project. The work I have seen so far is excellent.

A few housekeeping notes:
  • The two most recent Students of The Week will publish their own blog posts tomorrow
  • Grade 4 students have been designated as cake and grab-bag makers for the Hallowe'en Fair. A note to this effect was sent home, but if you have any more questions please let me know.
I will post a few links tomorrow, sorry for the lapse in posting over this weekend.  Happy Hallowe'en!
