NEW BLOG SITE!

Dear Families & Friends,

Sorry everyone to post with such short notice. As it turns out our school division is making some changes. As of October 1, 2014 this site will be gone and our new page will be here:

http://mrsdevlinsclass.edublogs.org

With the help of some pretty amazing people (Thanks Mr. Roberts) we are trying to move as much as we can over to the new blog site before this one disappears!

Hope to see you on the new blog where we can continue our learning journey together!

Minecraft, Dinosaurs and Grade One!

Dear Families,

Today Mr. King brought a new project for us to try out. We played Minecraft. We had to find the burried dinosaur fossil. It was down under the bricks. The dinosaur fossil was grey. We had to work as a team. There were four of us that got to try it out. Me and Elsa found 2 of the fossils. Then everyone helped out. The fossils were way down in the ground. The fossil was way down in the ground. It was fun.

Love,

Spiderman

More from Elsa…

Dear Mrs. Devlin

 Yesterday I got my hair done and it has beads in it and strings and tin foil. I got to pick 3 beads to go on the end! After I went swimming in the pool and it was hot.

 Me and my mom and papa went upstairs to eat lunch and when my papa sat down and he yelled because he sat on something, it was a crab! It was so funny!

 It’s our last night here and my mommy promised to take me swimming at night time because we are leaving very early tomorrow.

I’ll see you soon! Buenos noches!

Elsa…. you are having too much fun!

Dear Mrs.Devlin

Yesterday I went on a boat ride to an island called Isla Mujeres. We went swimming in the ocean and there was a big water slide but I didn’t get to go on it because my mommy said it was too big and too fast. We went for a buffet lunch. I had Mac n’ cheese, it was so good!

After lunch we got back on the boat and they took us to the other side of the island so we can go shopping! We bought lots of presents! Then we got back on the boat to come back to the hotel. The crew on the boat were funny, they were dressed up in silly costumes, one of them was a chicken! They were dancing funny!

On our walk home we saw lots of iguanas! They are like squirrels here, they are everywhere I even saw 2 baby ones on a plant, they were so cute! Buenos Dias!

A Message from Elsa!

Dear mrs.devlin

Yesterday was a busy day. We got up at 6:30 in the morning to go to Xcaret. It was an hour bus ride to get there. We went into the aquarium and I saw fish, jelly fish, sharks, stingrays, octopus’, crocodiles and giant turtles that were bigger than me! After that we got lost trying to find the dolphins but we found them! My grandma surprised me for my birthday to swim with the dolphins! The dolphin kissed me and i kissed him back! It was so much fun!

We went to a underground river and it had tunnels. I got to snorkel through them! There were bats hanging above us while we were swimming and a butterfly stained glass window, it was so pretty! I saw lots of colourful fish! One looked like Dorrie from finding Nemo!

After that we went for supper and we saw a raccoon and a little girl was eating against the fence and the raccoon almost got her food! I ate alot of food because it was a buffet! After dinner we went to see a show about the Mexican history it was so cool! They were playing a game where they had to hit a ball with their hips and get it in a hoop. The next game they played the ball was on fire! And it was kinda like hockey! Buenos Dias!

We Miss You Elsa!

Dear Elsa,

We miss you very much! We have been very busy travelling all across Canada. We flew to Nunavut but had to make an emergency landing on the tundra. We had an awesome pilot! Once we landed we began building shelter. We call it Snow Town. So far we have lots of rooms and a kitchen too!
