Coronatastrophe (Coronavirus) 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Hi everyone,

I’m back I now. I haven’t been to school for a while. Well now I’m back so now I’m doing some school work.

But anyways let’s get to the subject so I’m excited for Math and I have been doing a lot of multiplication and division problems. I like it so much I have printed out some work and a 15-15 multiplication chart.Β  However the one thing I’m not looking forward to is Reading-Writing (Mostly Writing and I don’t mean online I’m fine with online writing or else I wouldn’t be doing this I mean paper writing is what I don’t like)

Visit With A Famous Author (Matt Tavares)

On December 9th, 2019, Matt Tavares (Author and Illustrator) came to visit Bowdoinham Community School. That morning we had an assembly and it was about Matt Tavares introducing himself and telling us about his life story and adventures in writing and illustrating.Β 

After the assembly, classes rotated through and participated in a special activity with the author.Β  They were each given a writing prompt and told to create their own unique illustration to go with this quote: β€œ I kept flying, trying to catch up soon I found myself in a strange place, unlike any place I had ever seen”.Β  We were given paper, colored pencils and pencils without erasers.Β  There weren’t any erasers on the pencils because it would mess up your picture if you erased too much.Β  Matt also told us that β€œIf you make a mistake, make it part of the picture”, so the pressure of being not perfect made the picture perfect.Β Β 

After we did the activities we finished the pictures in our class & in the gym with Matt Tavares.Β  Our drawings are out on display on the school walls next to the office. Overall it was great we all learned to draw from a mistake like “Picture Perfect”Β  Our school also has a quoteΒ  Β  Β  “In It Together:Β  Meaningful Learning That Lasts”
