Toondoo with The School

I love Toondoo. You can get some great literacy outcomes happening. It engages the children. We have been creating accounts and "playing" so far. More explicit tasks will follow once we have a familiarity with the tool, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, enjoy Oskars "Toon"


Here is another one by Jackson. We published it and discovered some grammatical errors, so jackson's homework is to go to toondoo and repair it. The repaired version will update here as soon as it is saved.

Where are we from?

We had a multicultural day and we put our placemark on google earth. Our placemark shows where our parents and grandparents came from.

We also did dancing and storytelling and music.

Mr Collinson put the placemarks on google maps and then put it here. We hope you have fun

Blogs in Schools..presentation in Sydney

Hello reader...

I have been asked to present to a group of educators in Sydney, regarding the use of blogs in schools.

Here is my presentation (hosted at Zoho). As well as the presentation I'll be showing of the work of the fantastic creative talent of the Mullum students, by demonstrating some of the features of this blog.

Sounds like fun!

How can a blog like this be useful in school?

Welcome senior classes.

We have had this blog running for about two years now. We have examples of all kinds of student work. Pictures and artwork, writing, programming, presentations and audio.

What ways do you think that a blog like this can be helpful to you in school and class?

What can be done to make it better?

Rain is loud, rain is fun

But when it is sunny there is none.

When it rains it sometimes hails

But when it falls it sounds like nails.

When rain is bad it turns into lightning

And when it starts it's very frightening.

Rain fills dams, oceans and creeks,

When it gets on the roof it leaks.

Rain makes puddles and turns dirt into mud

And from the flowers out sprouts a bud.

When the rain comes at night

I get under my covers and pull them up tight.

Email for Students

All children at Mullumbimby PS from yr 2 and up, have been given a user name and password that allows them to access the internet and email from school, and also allows them to access email from home. For those children clever enough to remember their user name and password, and would like to use “the portal” for email during the holidays you will need to type the following address into your browser.
and then follow the prompts.

Remember to always display courtesy when using your email account. All mail is filtered by DET, and cyber bullying will not be tolerated. Don’t bookmark the site, because each time you log in the site has a will have a slightly different address, (session id cookies), and the bookmark will not work the next time you try to log in.

Hope you enjoy keeping in touch with each other during the holidays. Have fun and stay safe.

Mr Collinson
