Watch a ‘Kiva’ video from CNBC

Watch what can happen when you ‘loan’ as little as USD$25 through Kiva

Today, 5W lent USD$450 to people who need help, using a little of our money, and a lot from ‘sponsors.’

Can YOU loan your child money to lend on – to help someone improve their life? It might not even cost you a dime!

Winter holiday – PROJECT VIDEO

Dear all,

We have talked in class about making an iMovie the first week back of your child’s winter holiday experience(s). All your child needs to do is to take short video clips of anything interesting that happens over the holidays such as:

  • friends and family time
  • visits out
  • trips
  • meals
  • present time
  • etc

Suggestion – download the film ‘footage’ to your child’s Dropbox account. OR, just bring the camera and lead into school on January 7th.

We will make a SHORT (maximum 2 minute) video of our holiday time on iMovie in class the first week back.

As an example, last year, Brazil, Kiyoka and Shion made this wonderful short video in 4N:

I hope you can help remind your child to take a few pictures/photos and more importantly SHORT video clips from time to time.

Have a great break everyone

Julian Weekes
