Ever tried to race while blindfolded? As part of a writing experience and motivation. Room 10 went outside and divided themselves into four groups. Then, each person had to have a partner. One person was blindfolded and the other person acted as the guide again and had to instruct their buddy where to go. Stay tuned for children's writing of this fun-filled game.

This term as part of a writing motivation we made Silly Sandwiches in partners. One was blindfolded their arms were making the sandwich and the person sitting down on the chair and wasn't blindfolded acted as the guide and gave their buddy directions and instructions on what to do. Below are some photos of this experience. As you can see it was a lot of fun and laughs. Stay tuned for stories that the children have written.

Last week we were very fortunate to Skype with our friends in America. For a majority of the class, it was their first time (including the teacher). The children were all very excited to speak live with Dr John Strange and some of his students. Below is what we recorded but if you click here and then another link on that post, you will see what Dr John Strange recorded. It was lots of fun. Thanks again to our friends in America. We hope to Skype again with them, our friends around the country and the world soon.
