Yesterday was Pentecost. It marked the end of Easter. We now begin the season of “Ordinary Time”. Please read the passage below. It is a continuation of our study on the “Liturgical Calendar”.
Happy birthday to the Catholic Church! Happy birthday to you, who are the body of the Church!
We’re all familiar with our own birthdays, and we celebrate them because they mark the day of the year in which we entered into this life. But did you know you have a second birthday? Because you are part of the body of the Church, Pentecost is the Church’s birthday, and yours as well. And like any birthday, it’s a cause for celebration. The word Pentecost is Greek and it means “50th day.” Fifty days after Easter Sunday, we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and their followers, and the beginning of their Earthly ministry to make disciples of all nations. Pentecost is also a Jewish holiday, which the Jews use to celebrate the end of Passover. Jews celebrate the gift of the law to Moses at Mt. Sinai on this day. But we, as Catholics celebrate the birth of our Church.
At Pentecost, the Apostles and their followers were gathered in a room. Jews from all over the world were gathered with Peter, the leader of the Apostles and the Eleven. At this time, a great wind blew and a flame appeared as a tongue of fire, which split itself into many individual flames above the heads of all those present. The Holy Spirit came upon these people and each began to speak in tongues. Despite the fact many had no common language, they were perfectly able to understand one another. Others who were not so blessed, accused those speaking in tongues of being drunk, but Peter arose and called all those present to be baptized and about three thousand people were baptized that day. These people were among the first Catholics, and Peter is the first pope of the Catholic Church. The symbols of Pentecost are the flame, wind, and the dove, which represents the Holy Spirit. The color of Pentecost is red and the priest wears red vestments on this day. Parishioners are also invited to wear red on this day. Red decorations as well as celebrations are appropriate, similar to any other birthday. Special prayers are often said just for Pentecost.

Here is a link to Mr. Robins’ Grade 11 Report Card. The marks are for “First Report” and “Second Report” of my first semester of Grade 11. The subjects in order are English 11, Math 11, Band 11, and Chemistry 11. The marks for my first report were A, B, C+, and B respectively. As you can see in the “Second Report” my marks were not quite as good. The “Teacher’s Comments”, were as follows:
‘Eng. 11 – I’ve enjoyed working with Brad. His work is good and always promptly handed in.’ (Ken Mason).
‘Band – Band Parts 20/30, Musical Growth 34/40, Attendance 25/30. 79/100.’ (Peter Whitherly)
‘Chem. 11 – Brad tries hard to try to understand the material. ‘(Karen Couture)
The “Second Report” is visible and you can read the marks and comments. Note: Do you see my mark for “Band” in the “Second Report’. That’s what happens when you skip classes. Notice the mark in both reports for English 11. My teacher was Mr. Mason. He was an awesome teacher that really cared about his students. I remember two assignments in particular: a study of the lyrics by Bernie Taupin who wrote the lyrics for Elton John. The song was “Sixty Years On”. The other assignment was a novel study of “Lord of the Flies”. Mr. Mason was unbelievable!

Thanks to those who have completed and returned, as an attachment, your Religion and Science assignments. I will be scoring your written work using the rubrics, “Grade4 Scoring Guide for Personal/Expository Writing”. This rubrics you re familiar with; however, I have provided a link under the “L.A. Writing” heading below to download.
In addition, use the small book that you received with your school items to journal or write a diary of the day’s event. Use one or two pages. Make sure you date the journal each day before you begin.
If looking to explore your learning, consult the “Extended Learning” heading for ideas. Currently, I have suggested researching Radio Plays and ancient structures or building that coincide with your model sent home with your school supplies.
I sent an email home Tuesday for all student to signup for “GetEpic”. Just follow the instructions in the invitation to join. This is a reading site you can explore. In addition to books, there are videos and audio books that may be of interest.
“Mathletics” and “Scratch” are available. I will be sending a link for a “Scratch” project next week.
“Huckleberry Fiinn” remains posted below for reading. In the future, I will post additional stories.
Join “Kidblog”, and start commenting and posting your ideas. Several of you have used this site and I appreciate the Posts and Comments you have made.

Thanks kindly to the parents who picked up school supplies for their child yesterday. It was nice to see everyone.
Among the items you have received were 4 poster boards, a tri-fold Science board, at least one famous building (ie. Tower of Pisa, Chichen Itza, Taj Mahal) model. You are free to assemble this model. If you wish to undertake an Extended Learning Opportunity, you could assemble the model, research, and report on your famous building. This is something you could post on Kidblog. Please do not use three of the poster boards and the tri-fold Science board. These will be used for future projects. That means there is one poster board you can use for personal use.
Among the other items is a small book. I would like this small book to be used for a journal/diary. Use a page or two each day to describe the things you do, see, hear, feel, and think. The situation we are currently experiencing does not happen often. It is a generational event. Date the top of each page and then record.
Finally, if you have an opportunity in the early evening, after sunset, look out into the night sky, observe the Planet Venus and the waning full moon. Thanks to the students who have submitted some of their work. I am keeping an electronic portfolio for each student. This will be available at the end of the school year.
**Update: An invitation to join “Get Epic” has been sent to the students. Follow the instructions on the email. Once you have created your account explore the site. Choose some reading material that interests you. There is no assigned readings at the moment and no exercises. Have fun searching the library.

Buenos días, ¿cómo está. Have a great weekend everyone. If anyone wants a bedtime story, listen to “Superman” below. This is a radio broadcast from February 12, 1940. It was titled, “The Baby from Krypton”. Can you imagine T.V. was not yet invented and used by consumers in 1940. Most families for entertainment would sit in front of a radio to listen to entertainment programming. Have a listen! This is the first episode of many. I will post the episodes in order, beginning today.
Episode 1: “Superman: The Baby from Krypton” :
Posted: Saturday, April 4, 2020
Bonjour! Comment vas-tu? Nous commençons une nouvelle journée. Remember today that we have a meeting at 2:30 p.m. Students can continue to complete the homework as posted under each subject below. As well, try to read the story, “The Fun They Had” prior to our meeting this afternoon. Continue to complete portfolio corrections, join “Kidblog” and review the “Internet Safety Guidelines”. Today, I am providing a link to an interactive website, “Welcome to the Web”, that might be interesting to complete as well. The site is a teaching tool to teach students that internet safety is important.
Remember: Always remember to slow down in life; live, breathe, and learn; take a look around you whenever you have time and never forget everything and every person that has the least place within your heart.
Posted: Friday, April 3, 2020
Good Morning! There are a couple of requests to students. Students are asked to continue to complete homework assignments as listed in each subject heading below, continue to complete corrections of work in student portfolios, read “Internet Safety Guidelines”, and the story, “The Fun They Had” by Isaac Asimov.
I rediscovered the story, “The Fun They Had” quite recently. It was a story that I read to my Grade Seven students in 1982 – my first year teaching. Isaac Asimov’s story was published December 1, 1951. In 1982, there were no school computers. However, I brought my Commodore 64 (I believe the most sold personal computer of all-time) to the classroom, where I had my students work on writing stories and publishing classroom/school newspapers. Remember, at this time, there was no Internet, cell phones, Xbox, Netflix…. The Commodore 64 was an 8 bit computer, with the RAM memory of 64 kb. Today’s personal computers are 32 bit – 64 bit with 4 GB – 64 GB memory. Storage was on a floppy disc or Diskette (magnetic cassette tapes). A floppy disc could store 1.44 megabytes of data. By the time we processed and published our news using the Commodore, our news was history!
The story, “The Fun They Had”, will be discussed together during our classroom meeting on Friday. Consider: How did Margie and Tom’s learning environment look different from yours today?
“The Fun They Had” by Isaac Asimov
Students can read with parents, “Internet Safety Guidelines”. As our education and learning is moving towards the web, it is important we are all safe. That being said, I have now invited students to join Kidblog, “Mr. Robins’ Class”, as per student email. This blog has only the class as members and no public access. Students are free to post and comment. I will be the administrator that will deem student work “Approved”, and once “Approved”, then viewed by class members. A reminder to students, use the “Writing Process” before publishing a post/comment. That means prewriting (think of creative ideas), draft, edit and proofread, and publish. Proofreading and editing can be done collaboratively with parents.
Keep moving at your own pace. Do what you can. Remember: “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” Mahatma Gandhi.
Best regards,
Mr. Robins

Greetings! Today, I have sent an email to all students. It is a request to join Kidblog. Take your time joining this blog! Enjoy the day and keep safe!

Welcome to the third term in Grade Four. The students can work on the posted homework below. Some may not have been able to take all of the necessary supplies and needed documentation home before the break. We are working on scheduling a school pickup of student supplies and resources by parents. Stay tuned. In the meantime, I will attempt to upload the necessary documentation for students that do not have the resources for “Learning About Liturgical Seasons and Days”, “Savannah’s Location and Description”, “What is Energy?”, and Speech Arts categories, criteria and instructions. I have not posted due dates for these assignments as their completion will be dependant on accessing the resources aforementioned.
Some students upon the completion of their student-led conferences did take a science textbook home with them – “Science Probe 4”, second term portfolio, and binder. For those who did not take any of these items home, a school pickup will be arranged. TBA. In addition, student handwriting workbook, “Canadian Handwriting: Book D”, will also be available for pickup. We will continue with handwriting lessons. All other personal items will also be available for pickup. Some students have also taken home their Term 2 Portfolios. Those students can continue working on corrections in this portfolio.
Students can continue to work on “Mathletics”, practice subtraction facts, study the spelling words listed below (a test will be upcoming), prepare their Speech Arts presentations, and work on “Scratch” projects.
The links, “Epic” and “Kidsblog” are unavailable at this point. I will eventually join the students once all students have registered their email accounts.
There is a link for the classic novel, “Huckleberry Finn”. Students can navigate the reading panes to read this novel. This is challenging and may require parent support. This can be a family read-along and is not required.
Students can click on the link, “Math Focus 4 Extended Learning” and explore “Chapter 1: Patterns in Mathematics” as a review. Once the page is loaded, click on the left, “Student Center”, and then click “Try It Out”. “Try It Out” has quizzes that can be used as a quiz/review of “Chapter 1: Patterns in Mathematics”. “Surf For Math” and “Web Quest” links on this page can be frustrating and take you to pages no longer available or difficult to navigate. You are free to try these links, however.
It was nice talking to everyone yesterday and I will continue to contact those that I missed. I look forward to conferencing with students on Friday, April 3 at 2:30 p.m. via ‘Zoom’. Please register your email account with Microsoft and download ‘Zoom’ for Friday.
Work at your own pace, make it fun, and enjoy the new process.
Best regards,
Mr. Robins
