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!

Hey Nikole, how's Steve?

Nikole said...

Steves doing GREAT! Weird enough... Cojo like the meal worms!!! There both under there rok/ coconut house jut looking out! :P

Roxy Bromley said...

That's awesome that Cujo likes meal worms! The problem with mealys is that they have exoskeletons - and can be a little hard to digest (exoskeletons can make salamanders constipated, and if it gets serious enough, the resultant impaction can *kill* the little guy/gal). That's why I tend to feed Steve earth worms during the summer, and a mix of butterworms and meal worms during the winter.

Mr. Lockyer wants to know if you've let Steve and Cujo play together yet.

Thanks for being Steve's temporary mom! You sound like you're doing an awesome job.

Nikole said...

No... we havent put Cojo and Steve together because well we dont know what would happen :S! The butter worms dont seem to be alive... :(! Tell Mr.Lockyer that Steve is doing fine and that Steve and Cojo like to look at eachother :)! Oh yea... Happy Wedding in few short hours! Merry Christmas!

Nikole and Gary said...

Oh yea.... my dad just told me that he put Coj and Steve together for a little bit... and NOTHING happend!!! Wow! Who knew? Cool!

Nikole P.H said...

HAPPY WEDDING MISS.BORMLEY <3 Merry Christmas, Hannuka and anyother celebration! Got everything I wanted! :)

Roxy Bromley said...

Hi Nikole and Family; Glad to hear that Steve is doing well, and that Cujo gets along with him. Rad!

Thanks for your well wishes...Mr. Lockyer and I are married now, and are happily relaxing with family in Nova Scotia. We can't wait to see you in the New Year.

Maja G. said...

Congratulations!! Do we call you Mrs. Lockyer now?? Merry Christmas, and I hope you're enjoying your time in Nova Scotia! Can't wait to see you the 5th!!

Nikole & Krystyna :) said...

Roxy Bromley said...

Hey Maja, Krystyna, and Nikole:

You still get to call me Ms. Bromley, since Mr. Lockyer and I have decided that my name is too cool to change.


How's the break going?

Nick said...

Nikole said...

Nikole said...

When do you want me to bring Steve back? Like do you want me to bring him back the first day of the 2009 school year?

Maja G. said...

Awesome! I agree that your name is too cool to change... And I am having a great time, thanks for letting us see pictures.

Roxy Bromley said...

Hey everybody,

One week left. I always found that the second week of break went much faster than the first. You'll have to tell me whether or not it seems that way this year.

Athavan - I think that I like the Indian versions better than the original. Very cool.

Nikole - Sure, bring Steve to school on Monday the 5th. Mr. Lockyer really misses him!

Nick - Thanks, kid! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year yourself!

Maja - :) I'll post one picture now, but I'll show you guys the rest when I see you in January.

Everyone - Now would be the time to decide what you're going to study during second term in Computers. If you've got any qustions about that project, let me know, and I'll do my best to explain.

Nikole said...

1. Why you chose to learn about that topic
2. Your group member(s), and why you chose to work with them (or by The title of your topic
3. yourself)
4. Three things you've learned about your topic so far
5. Sources that you've used to find information (be specific!)
6. Things that you're finding easy and difficult about the research process
7. How you're planning to present your topic
8. How you are feeling about this project right now (and why you feel that way)
1.my title of my topic is televisions
2. I chose this topic because my group will put all are information online so some people can learn more about TVs

3.my group members are amir,soliyana,matthew.

I like my group members because I can trust them to do stuff

4.i learned that black and white TVS have this machine called a electron gun, that flat screen TVs and LCDS are good for you in different ways, that electron guns control the TVs in they olden days.

5. I used Google, Wikipedia and wiki answer.

6. I think that finding information online is difficult to find, I think that making slideshows are easy and fun.

7.we are going to present are topic by using slide show with sound.

I feel that this speech project is going to be very successful because we have enough information and all my group members are very responsible.
