Guest Blogger – Liam Designs a Racket

Hi, my name is Liam and I am a student in 2A.

On the weekend, my mom and I were playing a game where she would tell me something to act out… For example, being at a water park, being a chameleon, and being a tennis player. 

When I was being a tennis player, I decided to grab an Israeli toy that is a straw that you attach with connectors. Then, I built a bunch of tennis rackets and decided which one was the best.
I was choosing the best one based off what looked the most like a tennis racket. I think the one on the left with the thick, blue handle and yellow circle is the best. It is the best because the handle is thick and the circle looks like a tennis racket. The one in the middle with the red handle and blue line through the circle looks like a tennis racket but it is too heavy to it would just fall when I lifted it. 

I had fun when I was working on this. My little sister was also working on her own tennis rackets. My Morah thinks that maybe I should have a career in designing sports equipment or engineering.

2B French – Cette semaine and Learning with Lalilo

Bonjour!

In addition to their weekly reader, this week’s homework is called “Dans mon pupitre”. Read each person’s description and match them to what is in their desk.

Students in 2B have begun using the Lalilo program to help build fluency, comprehension, and word recognition in French. The site offers different stories and activities for students to complete. Students can access Lalilo using a desktop computer, laptop, or tablet.

If your child would like to work on Lalilo at home, they may do so by going to lalilo.com, and clicking Login, followed by “I AM A STUDENT”. Our school code is ZXWAQM.

#STUBC – Week 5

This week’s task was all about music. We learned that we can’t just take any music we want for a video because songs have copyright like pictures do.

We talked about the apps that we use to play music… like Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, and Google Music. You can buy a subscription for the app or sometimes you can use it for free and listen to commercials in the middle of songs.

We made a playlist on Youtube of some of our favourite songs. We can stream the music legally on Youtube but you CAN’T download the music from Youtube. We hope you enjoy listening to some of our favourite songs!
