We wish you a very happy long weekend. Some you may enjoy your holiday by going on a trip or staying at home. We would like to try an activity. If you have a google account you may have heard or know about google drive. Google drive is where we upload the powerpoint presentations with the vocabulary words. We have opened two new folders. These folders are for you to upload a short video of no more than 5 min. This videos will tell us a little bit on how you enjoyed your long weekend, children will come back next week and they will have like a show and tell of their short video. The video can be recorded on your phone and you can upload directly from your phone to the google drive folder. Or you may use any other video camera and upload it from your computer. We are attaching some video tutorials if you need any help.
