In our 5/6 classes this year, we would like students to learn how to work in a collaborative knowledge-building network. The tools available on the Internet make such networks far easier and more productive. Ideally, students would have access to a wide set of tools that allow them to express their learning in a manner that fits the content and their own styles of communication. Listed below is a set of tools that we would like to use. In some cases, these sites require students to create user accounts. In most cases, we have created a classroom account and the kids will use a common username & password. Due to the size and volume of content of each tool, the teacher cannot preview all content on the sites. Please review the list of possible tools. If you have any questions please let us know.

Movie Permission Slip 2015-2016
There are several opportunities throughout the year when we may watch a video with our students. These may include parties, bus rides or special celebrations during the school day. Occasionally we watch movies as a part of our curriculum. Unfortunately, many of today’s movies are rated PG and require parent permission to watch at school.
We carefully review movies before allowing students to watch. If there is a specific PG movie you do not want your child to watch please let us know. The movies listed below are a sample of the possible movies we may show.
