Welcome Hillsdale Students!

Welcome to our new friends from Hillsdale! We are so thrilled that we're going to be working together digitally this year!

Ms. Crosbie is a teacher in Oshawa who just got married last weekend (CONGRATULATIONS!) and who teaches grade 6, 7 and 8 students at Hillsdale. She found me online and we decided to hook up our classes and try some new ways of learning collaboratively.

I was intrigued to learn that Ms. Crosbie's school is called Hillsdale, because it reminds me of Hilldale, a fictional neighbourhood in one of my all time favourite movies, Back to the Future (warning: this link makes noise. Turn your speakers down first!).

Ms. Crosbie's students will be working on their first assignment this week. They'll be making their welcome posts and visiting R8A's blogs. Don't be surprised when you see that they've commented on the things you've written! Our next step is to check out their blogs, answer some of their questions and pose some of our own.

Yay! This is about to get REALLY good!

Hillsdale students, settle in, take a look around and enjoy yourselves! We're eager to hear what you think about the work we've been doing.

Hi, Miss Pollock (and class)!

We're very excited to get started on this digital adventure! Hopefully, we will get posting very soon!

Can't wait!
