Hello future readers,
I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. I know I did. In our class we always pass out cards and have a party. But when we came in from the playground after recess, Miss LaSalle told us that we would also be watching a film in our class.
Outta site! We were all pretty happy about that. We don't get to see films in class very often. Sometimes we have a film strip, or maybe a Science or Social Studies lesson on the overhead projector, but must of the time, we watch films in the auditorium. So this was really a treat!
It was time to pass out Valentines! We all took out out folders.
Isn't it funny how Kyle had a flying saucer and Jason had a space creature? I wonder if they planned that? Anyway, Melody passed out all the Valentines. It was a real kick opening all of them. Even us girls liked the Batman cards Kyle and Jason passed out.
Then Miss LaSalle told us to clean up our Valentines and put the folders away so we could pass out the cookies and candy. She said she could watch the film while we ate, just like in a real movie theatre. Isn't that groovy?
Miss LaSalle put the film reel on the projector and started the movie. It was "The Red Balloon".
We have to use our chalkboard since we don't have a screen. I love this movie. Even though there isn't a whole lot of talking in it, (except the boy calling for his balloon), it's still really good. I think it's neat how the balloon followed the boy everywhere, even to school. Kim started crying when the mean boys popped it. But the best part is when balloons came from everywhere to take the boy into the sky at the end! We all cheered!
It was such a good movie. Do kids still watch films in school in the future? I like watching in the auditorium, but there's something really special about watching it in the classroom. I love holidays when we get to do fun stuff at school. I hope you all had just as much fun on Valentine's Day as I had.
Until next time, future readers,
