Music Monday

Monday, May 6 is Music Monday!  It is a time when all Canadian schools stop and sing!  1pm is when our time zone is scheduled for. I will let you know closer to that day when and how St Emily will be participating.
The theme for 2013 is "Filling the Skies with Music."  This year's song is a collaboration between BareNaked Ladie's Ed Robertson and astronaut Chris Hadfield. The song is called I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing).
In preparation for that day, we will be practicing the song in class until we know the lyrics very well. I have placed the video on my youtube channel if you wish to practice at home :)

More info about the song here:   http://musicmakesus.ca/musicmonday/

iPad App Arrays

I may be getting a little carried away with the iPad theme in my classroom ;) 
Here is a math craft idea that students enjoyed, while demonstrating their knowledge of arrays from the beginning of our multiplication unit.
This photo is a snapshot of a few of the many great iPad app arrays students created in the classroom.
