Goodbye!

Dear Students and Parents,

It has been a pleasure teaching and working with you over the past 4 years! Please keep in touch. My gmail address is below and I would love to hear what you have all been up to. I promise I will write back. Be good for Ms Christ your new computer teacher for next year.

I will update on this site some online activities that I think would be fun and useful for you over the summer vacation. So stay tuned to this blog over the next couple of weeks. I will also add some more recent photos of baby Jessica while we are at home in New Zealand for the vacation. It is winter there right now, so I am not looking forward to being cold!

Love Ms Morrison

Last Day of School 2010-2011

Dear Students and Parents,

My goodness I had no idea how few students would be at school over the last week! Therefore only a few students in each Grade 1 class were able to save their Plant Life Cycle power points to their flashdrives.

If you are a Grade 1 or 2 student and were absent for Computer class in this last specialist rotation, then please collect your USB stick when you pick up your report card tomorrow. It will either be in your report card envelope, or with your homeroom teacher.

Please enjoy your last day before summer vacation everyone. And please keep in touch! I would truly love to hear how you are doing while we are in Thailand.

Kind regards,

Angela Morrison

End of Year in Computer Class

Hello parents and students, We are in our last Specialist rotation now in the Elementary School. So you have either had your last computer class for the year already, or have just one more to go! We have had a fantastic year typing, word processing, playing, exploring, creating, and presenting.

In Grade 1 and 2 we are putting the finishing touches onto our Plant Life Cycle powerpoints, saving them onto our flashdrives (USB memory sticks), and taking them home.

It was a bit of an experiment having Grade 1s purchase flashdrives this year. They are actually a bit tricky for most students of this age to use, and we did not need them very often. Now at least you have one for next year. Grade 2s had some success using their flashdrives for one or two projects in Computer class. It was good practice for next year, as in Grade 3 they are used a lot.

For all classes there will be an element of free choice for our final computer class. You deserve it!
