Eye see you: By Ginger, the novel Half Brother & the documentary Project Nim, Regent Park Film Festival, the Sentence Collage, the Geography Project

A few of the students have read, or are reading, this book:

It is based on the story told in the documentary, Project Nim.  

For those of you not familiar with this film festival, The Regent Park Film Festival is Toronto's only free film festival and showcases a diversity of films.

Have a look and catch a film.  There is a free breakfast and screening this Saturday morning.

Just before we move to our paragraph unit, we are taking a creative turn with our sentence work.  We are working on a series of sentence collages.
On the front board are some samples of sentences with some images.  The words and letters should be cut out, like the examples on the right hand side of the samples.  The marking criteria is also posted.  

In Geography, I would like there to be some clarity for the project by breaking it down.  Here is an image I posted from last week.
Here is a note I recorded, on the board, to help explain how the research will come together from one of the templates  handed out, and made available, to record some initial ideas of the project.  


- working on Geography project

- take the time to review some Multiplication notes, if you have not completed the Math test you started with Mr. Chung
