Skype reading

Reading Mortamer by Robert Munch to the grade 3 class in Thompson was a cool expiriance. It was fun to see the kids faces when they got to use something typically used for fun as an educational tool. It was also cool to see how we can incorporate modern technology into education. Not only things like reading to kids we've never met before through Skype but it also relates to things like blogging and such. This class an this expiriance has opened my eyes to how modern technology and social media can be used for education as well as entertainment.

Quick write- if I were invincible

If I couldn't feel any pain and was indestructible for 24 hours I would launch myself into space. I would float around the galaxy. I would sit on the sun or swim into a black hole. I would just observe space because I would love to see something that I would otherwise never get to see first hand. I would be the only person ever to be able to see space close up without something separating me from it. No glass, no spaceship, no telescopes and no suits. Just me and space.
If I had to stay on earth I would go to every place that seemed impossible to physically explore and see with my own eyes. I would go swim at the bottom of the ocean or with sharks, then it would explore inside a live volcano or walk through fire just o see what it would be like. Or I would j jump off the empire states building so I could see what it would be like to fly. I would do anything an everything I couldn't normally do an I would experience all of the things I couldn't normally experience.

Quick write- Which door?

I would choose the door to Hogwarts.  After I went through the door I would be a wizard and get to play in the quid dice World Cup. I would also get to eat all those feasts the students eat every day! If I went through the door it is under the assumption I get to be a wizard but not like Harry potter and have to battle all the evil wizards and almost die every year. I would asked to be placed in the Gryffindor house because I would meet Emma Watson (Hermione Granger).
