Mrs. Ford had her class participate in a carousal activity to share character traits about each other. The month of March celebrates the Life is Good theme FUN! This certainly was a FUN activity.
As students moved around the room they each added a trait to that person's name sheet.
The next part of the project involved using the laptops and the website tagul. Students entered the characteristics, chose a shape, adjusted text and color.
Finished projects look Awesome!

When one student takes a trip, we all benefit.
Dylan from Mrs. Kelleher's class is on an extended family trip. This stop is in Tokyo, Japan.
Today we got to catch up with him via Skype.
It was 9:00 AM our time and with the 14 hour difference it was 11:00 PM in Tokyo.
We had just arrived at school and Dylan had been sleeping.
The students had some thoughtful questions:
What has been your favorite part?
Food Dylan says the food is very fresh and healthy. Fruit is dessert.
Have you ever had whale bacon?
10 yen = about 10 cents
They are staying in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Dylan gave us a tour of the room.
Tomorrow they are off to visit a local school and will use google translate to communicate.
