The Falcon Cam is Up!

This term we are studying growth and changes in animals.  Part of this study focuses on animal life-cycles and so for the next few weeks we will be watching the CBC Peregrine Falcon Cam .  If we are lucky we might even be able to see the chicks hatch live.

#eduphotoadaymay the weekend shots


Today we talked about what makes a good photo, how to decide on a subject, and how to represent the daily words in different ways.  We also planned for the next two days of photos and took them in advance of the weekend.  Here are some of our ideas:


And here is what our student photographs photographed to represent the

Chicks in the Class

Today we had the chance to hold the very cute chicks from the grade 3 class next door.  Two are yellow and two are black and they all have an egg tooth on their beak. -Sofiya

Sometimes when we held the chicks, they had an accident but we wiped it up and cleaned our hands. -Jill

We saw chicks and some were curious, and some were crazy and one was calm. -Kaleigh

In Science we were leaning about hens, chicks and roosters and how they are both different and what things they have in common. We used a Venn diagram and put them in different categories. -Madison

Today when we held the chicks we made a circle so the chicks would be more safe as we passed them around. -Zoe


#Eduphotoadaymay #Music


Today we took a picture of the drums for the Instagram picture of the day. We got to pick if it was light or dark or black or light. -Vanessa and Madison.


 The word was for today's #eduphotodaymay was#music.
The picture was taken by Madison.

Wacky day





Wacky Day!

#Eduphotoadaymay

A New Project is Underway!
This month, two elementary teachers in our division came up with an amazing project and it started today!  We are excited to be participating in the #eduphotoaday project for May.  You can find a link to the blog by clicking hereOur class must take a photo everyday that corresponds with the word of the day.  We then take the picture and post it on Instagram, sometimes adding filters or other effects to make the photos look a little more dazzling.  Instagram is currently available for smartphones and ipads, and we are using Ms. Nairn's Ipad take our photos and edit them.

Here is a list of each days theme courtesy of the #eduphotoaday blog:

 

Today's word was Us and after much discussion about what would make an interesting photo, students decided on this to represent us.
