Why Winter Break Rules

Winter Break ruled this year because Mr. Lockyer and I were married at 3pm on Christmas Day in a village called Prospect on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. We were surrounded by family and friends. Since we're Super Geeks, we streamed our wedding live on the Internet, where hundreds of people watched online.
Why did YOUR Winter Break rule?

Here Comes Winter Break

In a few short days, we'll be into Winter Break. I'm left wondering where 2008 went. Over the holiday, I invite you to post your thoughts and stories as a response to this entry; after all, we won't get to see each other for two whole weeks.

If you're looking for something to do during the Break, here are some suggestions:
  • Students in grades 1-4 can storyboard for their animated GIFs. Use Paint, another graphics program, or just a pencil and paper to develop your character.
  • Students in 4/5 and 5/6 can begin researching for their major project.
  • Students in every grade should remember to get outside and DO something. Build a snowman (or lady). Make a fort. Eat some falling snowflakes. Your video game console and computer will be there when I get back, I promise.
I don't plan to post anything new until the end of Break (since I'll be in Nova Scotia getting married!). I will, however, respond to comments or questions.

Have a safe, happy, and restful break!
