Early Happy Mother’s Day!

Division 15 participated in this year’s Tomatosphere experience. We learned that even astronauts eat vegetables and grow them in outer space in their space station.  They need to eat healthy too!!

We received 2 packs of tomato seeds from the Tomatosphere program and had to plant them.  One pack of seeds was called Group J and the other pack was called Group K.  We planted them and we observed their growth and recorded germination.

Interestingly, all the seeds we planted grew tomatoes.  When we sent in our results we found out that Group K seeds were at the space station for 6 months and they grew perfectly.  Across Canada in other classrooms, Group K seeds grew a little less.

Please plant our little tomato plants in a bigger pot or in a yard and your child will help take care of them!

We thank all our moms, and all the loving adults in our life, our dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, and all the special people in our life for all your love and support and taking care such good care of us!!

With love, Division 15

Heart Maps and GoogleDrive

Dear Students,

Today we have a very special guest coming to our classroom.  Her name is Ms Chan and she is one of our district technology teachers.  She is very knowledgeable about education and technology.  Today Ms Chan will be helping our class learn how to sign onto GoogleDrive.  We will be using the images of our Heart Maps to do a short writing piece in the afternoon using GoogleDocs.

After you learn how to Sign On and write your first Google Doc, feel free to share what you find interesting about this way of writing. 

Excited, Ms. Sim

Marimba Mazuva

Marimba Mazuva performing

Dear students,

We had a visit from an amazing group of musicians called Marimba Mazuva.  Their instruments were handmade by themselves or from Africa.  They even used their boots as instruments!  I enjoyed their music, dancing and the story that they shared with us called, “Kombi and the White Lion.”  

Did you enjoy today’s performance? What was your favourite part of the show?  If you could make an instrument what would you make?  What could you use to make one with materials that you have around the house?

Sincerely, Ms. Sim

Thank you to Ms Chung (Kieran’s mom)

We were so lucky to get a visit from Kieran’s mom! She shared her Beanie Baby collection with us and every student received a special and different stuffie! Thank you so much Ms Chung.  The students have been using their imagination to write about and make a home for their Beanie Baby!

Dear Students,

Please feel free to say thank you to Ms. Chung.  You can also share the name and an interesting fact about your Beanie Baby.

Sincerely, Ms. Sim
