Happy Peace Day

The world's resources can be a source of conflict as well.  Here is a short video about saving our Arctic resources.




In ICT, we celebrated Peace Day by exploring some educational games and videos on the National Geographic for Kids Website about polar bears.













We also watched a video on arcitic habitats on the Brainpop website.

Grade 1 Typing Games

The first graders are learning the letters and numbers on their keyboards.  We looked at a keyboard and reviewed where we can find our numbers and letters on the keyboard and how to make a capital letter.

Then, the students went on the PYP ICT Blog and they used the games below to practice their typing skills.

Grade 3 Email Writing

How does email and instant messaging work?



The 3rd graders are learning to write proper emails.  They wrote their own emails with the following information:


  • To - Kathy's email address
  • Subject - What is the email about? (your class + your name)
  • Greeting - Says hello, and shows to whom you are writing (Dear ....,)
  • Body - Here is what you are telling the other person (at least, 3 complete sentences)
    •      Insert one photo, sized small
    •      Insert one hyperlink
  • Closing and signature - Say goodbye and tell them who you are (Yours, Sincerely, Your friend, Thank you)
