Bullying - Le taxage et l'indimidation

It is Bully-Awareness week at St Emily!

There is a school-wide poster/video contest for students 
and there will be bully-prevention presentations.

First block today we "stopped-and-talked" about bullying. We watched some videos and discussed afterwards. We will continue to watch a video a day this week from  Learn360. I gave students their passwords (check in your "les devoirs" duo tang).

Les couleurs de bases

In the month of September, we have been reviewing the visual art element of colour.
We began with an inquiry about how we can organize colours, based on our prior knowledge.
Here is what students discovered and collaborated in their groups.

We consolidated our learning by making colour wheels. 
This, we agreed, is the best way to organize colours!
