For the past few weeks we have been doing explorations . I have really enjoyed making new friends. Yesterday our exploration was typing last week codes were put up around the school and five people had to try and find them.
The First week was really fun when all of the teams worked together. In the second week when the grade 4,5,6 went in one room. The grade 7,8,9 went in another and the teachers talked about...
The first week of explorations was very fun. My favourite task was trying to get across the plaground without touching the ground. I liked the first week better then the second week but they were both fun. I liked making the word bubbles about thanksgiving. It was also intresting to find out about thanksgiving.

The first week of explorations was really fun because all the grades could work together. The second week was fun because we did the tagexdos. Explorations was awesome and I’m glad we’re doing them.
The activities were fun because of the teachers who were helping. I loved the Thanksgiving thing. I love anything that madam Thorne teaches because she’s awesome, she’s fun, she’s funny and I love how she speaks French randomly because I love French. The scavenger hunt was so much fun. I loved working with new faces and I loved how the teachers let us work with all different ages. The bar code part was so much fun and the rope tying was a lot of fun because I got to hug all the teachers that where there. I know this is way more than 3 things I loved but I couldn’t just write 3 because there were too many happy memories! There was nothing bad about the first and second week of school.

I agree with you, Mrs Thorne is very nice.
...she speaks French randomly... Love it! It is pretty funny, but I cant speak French so its a little confusing too.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING IN YOUR CLASS!!!!!! :):):)
It was so much fun when we got blind-folded and they had to direct us to the right plates. I liked untying the 5 ropes and then had to make the design. I got to create a picture with everything that I am thankful for.
Really? That one was sooo frustrating for our group. :(
that one second favourite .The one that you use pie plate haha and a beach towel to get across the playground was my favourite but it was the hardest for my group.WHAT A DIFFRENTCE.
I really liked both weeks. My favorite part of week one was the one where we had to use a plate and towel to get across playground. It was fun because I had to carry the plate in my mouth and the towel on my shoulder across the monkey bars because some people couldn't and we had to get the supplies to the next person after we finished.
I liked week 2 because we got to make the awesome tagxedo. I got to make one of my own and it was AWESOME. :)
Awesome and fun post!
Thank you for taking the items across the monkey bars for us! You looked kind of funny with a plate in your mouth and a towel over your shoulder, but it was very effective!
Haha! It was fun!
I think that the explorations are really fun and I enjoy doing them a lot. this week we made thanksgiving envelopes, and last week we had to find codes all over the school.
The first 2 weeks have been great! I liked that we got to learn about Q.R. codes. The scavenger hunt was really fun. The Tagxedo was fun too.
EVERY BODY HERE IS SO NICE
The first week was really fun with the scavenger hunt. It was cool because you got to go with all the grades so it was even. The part where you got blind folded was awesome and then the next week we got to do a tagxedo of all the things we are thankful for that was awesome too.
I agree with you that the first week was really cool.
Explorations has been half and half for me.
I think week one was better because of the fun activities and you
actually learned a bit about teamwork. In week two, I liked putting
in the words but other than that you just had to sit there.
P.S. The QR codes were so fun to scan!!!
I really liked explorations it was a lot of fun the first week when we had to scan the QR codes. The second week wasn’t as much fun for me because I liked it when we were moving around. But I thought it was cool making shapes with words.
I liked week one when we did the challenges with people from other grades, but I would have liked it better if the challenges had been a bit more difficult and organized. Week two was pretty cool too.I hope there will be more physical activity next time.
yes i think so to
I preferred week one over week two but week two was still interesting. My favorite part was getting across the playground without touching the ground. My team walked on the towel to get across and this turned out to be a very fast method. My second favorite part was when people had to guide us and tell us to pick up the plates. I am looking forward to next week as it is supposed to be more physically involved.
EXPLORATIONS WAS SO MUCH FUN!!! WHAT I liked about it is that we that we all had fun. My favorite part is that when we could ’t touch the ground on the playground. I learned That if you work hard then you can finish the race. I all so liked it when we had to undo the jump rope not’s. It was hard and fun. But most of all I liked to play with my friends.
I raelly liked explorations too
I had fun in Explorations because I enjoyed using the QR scans. I had never seen them before. Now that I have seen them I have seen them other places. I had no idea the QR scans could actually read those boxes. I liked tagxedos because I got to make shapes and colourful words.
The first week of explorations was awesome. I enjoyed having to get across the playground with out touching the wood chips. We took a funny pic of ourselves. And another one of my favourite parts was we went on the field and guided another person in our group to get paper plates, then spelling out the words.
I am happy that I can spend half the day with my friends from grade 5. My favourite part of week one explorations was the blindfold. You had to blindfold another person on your team and then you lead the blindfolded person to a plate. You needed to find all 12 green plates and then spell a word with the 12 letters. In week two, I liked playing with the tagxedo website. We all said what we were thankful for. Then we got to make our own tagxedo with things we liked.
I enjoy exploration class. I like the challenging activities and running around the school in groups. I like using the iPad to scan the paper and do the activity it says. My favorite activity was untangling the skipping robe and making another shape.
I like the iPad scanning too!
In week one, we all went outside to do a scavenger hunt and activities. We ran and had a lot of fun. We worked in teams with kids from grades four to nine. In week two, we worked in teams and went on tagxedos. I created a pink seahorse with Hannah.
it was really fun i liked week one better then week two
I had fun with AJ doing the tagxedo during Explorations.
For the last two weeks we have been doing explorations they're great. Yesterday it was typing and last week codes were hidden around the school.I love how every week we do explorations. I wonder what our next exploration will be.
my first two weeks have been amazing, my favourite thing about the first week was the QR scan game. My favourite thing about the second week was that I got to go to texedo.com and make a
yin yang sign with words.
The first week of explorations was really fun! We did a scavenger hunt with a bunch of tasks. We were put into groups of grades 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 so that was nice to get to know some new people of different ages. My favorite task was the one where we had 1 towel and 1 paper plate and we had to get our whole team across the playground. In week 2 we went on Tagxedo.com and Wordle.com. We made collages out of words that we made up and we put them into shapes. Over all it was AWESOME!
WORDLE sounds funny! But I really liked making the wordle and Tagxedo.
I had a lot of fun in explorations. My favourite thing in explorations was the blindfolding activity. Next favourite was the funny math questions. I really liked working with friends of all grades. Explorations is so much fun. If explorations wasn't fun, well I don't know what I would do. I also love the teachers. It is the best school ever. Never change Lochiel because it is awesome!! I could of have never been in a greater school in the world .I don't ever want to change schools.
The last two weeks of explorations were lots of fun. I liked the new things that the school is trying to do, like incorporating all the ages and classes together. I enjoyed working with the younger kids because in our split ours is the oldest. I liked tagxedo and the fun scavenger hunt we did. Please keep the fun activites coming!
I liked working with other grades too
Yeah, Sam, I agree. It's awesome with that new free learning!
I think doing explorations this year is a great idea. It is fun and educational.
WEEK 1 was a great exercise for the school to learn to use team work and get to know each other. My first obstacle was like a game of trust where you had to trust your companion to lead you through a maze of coloured plates and they had to trust you to pick up your colour. This showed us that it is better to work together than to work alone.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO THIS SCHOOL- ITS REALLY FUN
I really liked explorations I liked the first time when we got up and were moving around outside. The second week was fun but I would have liked to move around more. But it was cool making words into shapes.
Thats what I said
I am really new to this school and Mr. Main and Mrs. Thorn was soooo fun I had so much fun with them. And the other teachers still I have not met but I think they will be PRETTY nice. I love HOMESCHOOL!
I really liked the first week when all the classes worked together to do different tasks. My favorite task was trying to get the whole team across the play ground without touching the ground, and only having two small items. I also liked making Tagxedos on the second week, but we had to sit down for a long period of time, and I don't really like doing that. Explorations has been fun so far!!!
I really liked scanning the bar codes while playing the game. I also enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt with all the different grades. Last week we made envelopes and made a tagxedo. I really enjoyed using different words and printing it off.
I love it
I really liked the scanning codes scavenger hunt. Also, I liked when we got to work with partners to make a tagxedo. I liked when we made the envelopes, but I think we should get to do more gym related activities. I love explorations!!!!!!
I really enjoyed it when all the grades teamed up and worked together doing the bar code search. I also liked trying to get the team across the field. I am looking forward to next weeks activities.
I liked the tagxedo words. I typed Dora. It was fun outside too. I liked the paper plate game.
I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt because all of the mini games were a lot of fun my favourite was the playground one.
i liked term 2 explorations i had fun on tagxedo and wordle and it was fun in a group.
I liked the scavenger hunt because we got to run everywhere, and got to use the iPads.My favourite part was when we got blindfolded and we were directed to the coloured plates.I liked the tagxedo's because we got to write down a bunch of things that we were thankful for.
I'm LOOKING FORWARD TO THE POTLUCK ON THE 6TH WEEK, AND I REALLY LIKED ALL THE FUN ACTIVITIES WE DSID SO FAR.I ALSO LIKE MR.SANGAS FUN TIES
I LOVE GOD AND GABRIEL THE ANGEL
I LOVE BUNNIES
I LOVE explorations!!! I liked the QR scans during the scavenger hunt. It was fun using the iPads. My favorite part was getting piggy backed across the playground with the plate and towel.
I also loved the tagxedo's because we got to pick our own shape and colour and words to make art.
THIS IS THE BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!! and it has the best teachers too.
I have really liked the past few weeks in explorations. My favourite activity so far was the scavenger hunt.Also doing the QR codes because you got to make your own.Lochiel is the best school because we do the most awesome stuff out of the 4 schools I have been to so far.
I think the new Explorations that teachers have set up at school are very entertaining. I like the scavenger hunt and the videos we watched.
I hope Explorations for next term will have some art or cooking in it. Then I can make my 'EXPLODING' pancakes :)
me to can not what to taste those pancakes.
I think summating new is cool and good for you so i think explorations is cool. i love the games we play i would like next term to have it to. i would like art cooking and futagrify.
One thing that went well at the explorations is that I got a lot of information on my leader. One thing that did not go well at the explorations is that I didn't even start on my conclusion!, but I did get pretty far.
I really liked the first two weeks, at explorations ,because you learned how together as a team and had to decide together- as a team. During class I really enjoyed the silent reading and the French. I hope that we don't move schools for a fourth time.
I really enjoyed the taxedo and the amazing tasks- scavenger hunt on the first and second week of explorations. I liked the taxedo because I really enjoyed changing the shapes that they were in and I also really enjoyed changing the colors of the words and the colors of the background, and I liked that we got to print it out. I liked the scavenger hunt cause you had to do so many fun things and you had to work together as a team and chose to go to which amazing task to do.
The explorations class is fun and full of free learning. It also gives us the unique opportunity to mix with other grades and sometimes be the leader, but also get time as the younger one as well. I have to say that my favourite explorations class was the first one. I think it gave us the most opportunity to mix different levels of knowledge in a way a regular school couldn't manage. Don't get me wrong, Taxgedo was close behind. The idea of a word cloud probably never would have come to me. And Thanksgiving... what better topic than something that you're thankful for? The explorations class was amazing and I'm looking foreword to it next week!
the class is really fun I really like it. I'm just waiting for this class the whole day, I learned at lot at this class. My favourite part is probably when we got to make a bunch of words that go into a shape that tells the things we were thankfull for and I also like studying for the bio.
I love Explorations! It's really fun because I get to do cool activities and I learn new things. I have seen QR codes but never knew what they were until class. My team made our own QR code which was "do 20 push ups on the field". On the second week, my friends and I made a Tagxedo, Thanksgiving style. It was super fun!
I loved doing Tagxedo. I made one at home for my wall and one for my grandpa for helping me learn about electricity.
i liked week 2 because of the turkey game i also liked talking about
I LOVED LUNCH OF THE LEADERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!
I met Albert Einstein
I met Mrs.Thorne's father, Albert Einstein and Thomas Jefferson. Mrs.Thorne's father is a great father, he taught his daughter how to be a professional, his greatest achievement was his children, he spoke English, he loves his students, his greatest allies/supporters were his family and he is 60 years old. I also met Thomas Jefferson who is smart, he wrote the decoration of independence, his greatest achievement was writing the decoration of independence, he spoke English, he wanted to help people, his greatest supporter was John Abrams and was 83 when he died.
And the last person I met was Albert Einstein who says he is a super genius and discovered the theory of relativity.
The most interesting person I met was Thomas Jefferson.
He is interesting because he wrote the decoration of independence.
I liked the scavenger hunt because I could scan QR codes and work with kids in other grades. I did not like the turkey hunt very much because it was tiring, but I learned a lot about thanksgiving.
