Yesterday I spent the day meeting my virtual grade 4/5 classroom from Churchill Alternative School in Ottawa, Ontario. What a good first day! We spent about 30 minutes skyping and getting to know each other. Each student came up to the iPad, Isaac, and introduced themselves then asked me a question. It was funny how much I had in common with this class! They asked questions like what my favourite movie or book was as a kid. It was really interesting to hear that even though I was in love with Space Jam and A Series of Unfortunate Events over ten years ago, these kids loved these movies and books too! That made me feel a little less young.
After talking to Shauna a little further about Churchill Alternative, it sounds like a really interesting place. I’m so fortunate to have been linked up with such a fun group of students. I can’t wait to hear some of their stories during their Language lesson on Monday!
