Welcome to the Primary Blogging Community

We are so happy to have you here! We are a wonderful bunch of Grade Ones from Stittsville, Ontario which is just outside of Ottawa. Ottawa is the capital of Canada!

Our school is called St. Stephen and we have 2 other grade one classes in our school. Our school has Kindergarten to Grade Six.

Our favourite things to do are:

  • Use technology
  • Writing
  • Make Halloween Books
  • Use the Smart Board
  • Halloween Crafts
  • Learning Centers
  • Dreambox (computer game)
  • Recess
  • Playing in gym (we are learning about soccer)
  • Playing on our new playstructure
  • RAZ-Kids (computer game)
  • Puppets

We are wondering where our visitors live? And what is the weather like where you are? It keeps raining here! The temperature is in the middle (about 12 degrees). We can where a coat in the morning, but we usually don't need it in the afternoon.

Friday we have a PD Day so there is no school. And we are celebrating Thanksgiving on the weekend.
