In this blog you will find my students work using SOLE from when I was teaching.
Can you tell which students put the most effort into their work? Who is autistic? Who has a learning disability? Who has a behavioural issue In the class? They are all equals when it comes to SOLE.
This blog is a resource to put my thoughts and learning about education.

All About Christmas
Alisha, Caden, Adrian M
The representative for Santa was born in Patara, Turkey in
280. He died December 6th 343 in Myra, Turkey. He then transferred
into Santa Claus. Before he died, he was a Christen bishop who provided for the
poor and sick. The date of Christmas is December 25 in most places or January 6th
or 7th or 19th. Christmas is an annual commemoration of the
birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas is a civil holiday in many of the world’s
nations. Christmas is called Christmas because it combines 2 words Christ’s
Mass. The term literally means the Mass of Christ. No one knows exactly how
long Christmas has been around for.
How did the
Hunter, Zach, Andrew, Denyce
A billion years ago the solar system was nothing but a
bunch of clouds. The clouds of dust were made of called dust particles. The
dust particles soon got attracted to each other, and formed one big spinning
disc. As the disc spun, the disc separated it into smaller rings. The spinning
of the rings made them white hot. The center of the rings was the sun. The
outer rings turned to large balls of fire. The balls were made of gas and molten
liquid and soon turned into planets. The planets were Earth, Mars, Venus,
Neptune, Mercury and many other planets.
Lightning is produced in thunderstorms. It is made as liquid and ice particles move above
freezing level collide. There is a build up of large electrical fields in the
clouds. Once electrical fields become large enough a giant spark occurs between
them. Thunderstorms produce lightning
and are very dangerous. Lightning kills
and injures more than hurricanes and tornados each year. The number of people
killed and injured is in between 100-1500 people. Have any of you ever rubbed
your feet across carpet and then touched a metal doorknob and get shocked? That
is what happens with lightning
How Do You Make Something 3D?
films are captured using two lenses placed side by side just like your eyes. 3D films like Avatar trick your mind, bringing images
projected onto a flat cinema screen and projecting them forward. in old
fashioned 3D films, footage for the left eye would be filmed using a red lens
filter, producing a red image, and footage for the right eye would be shot
using a blue filter,
resulting in a blue image. Together they fool the eye into thinking
something is standing out or sitting back on the screen.
HOW Does a Snowflake FORM?
Olivia, Rheya, Keeshan, Katelynne
BEFORE SNOW FALLS, IT TURNS INTO ICE
CRYSTALS. When the ice crystals get heavy, they form six tiny arms, and as they
fall, the arms grow and get bigger as droplets of water attach themselves to
the crystal and freezes. It also has to be less than 0 degrees to snow. Snow
starts in the Earth’s atmosphere as tiny droplets.
A snowflake gets it shape from the
way the air hits it.
do we dream when there is nothing there?
When you close your eyes
you imagine stuff. Your brain is active during rem (rapid eye movement). The
rapid eye movement exercises the brain during long periods of sleep. Neurotransmitters
remained active during sleep. Recent research reveals that our dreams are our
mind at work organizing and making sense of memories, sort of like therapy but
only inside your head.
Our thoughts about dreaming.
Caoimhe What I think is
that the threats in life that we see makes you dream bad things like you are
falling off a cliff.
I think what happens in
the day could get involved with your mind and get in your dreams
you dream the images in your mind come to life
