(NOTE: Copy on this page changed weekly to reflect where each particular class was in the process and to intro any new content. This is a sample class page (each school had their own password protected web page) to give you a sense of what was delivered to each school. At Part 5, students wouldn’t yet have access to some of the content below, such as sneak peeks of Brooke’s illustrations. I’ve added in this content to give you a fuller sense of what the students were exposed to over time. Note also that much ‘conversation’ ensued between me and the students in the comments section at the bottom of each class page which is not reflected here.)

Hi again to the grade 2 students of <<School Name>>

I’ve updated your class movie to include your Part 5 illustrations. You guys are definitely capturing the ferocity of the wind and the emotion of the characters in what you’re imagining. There’s a lot of cool character and wonderful detail in your drawings. Great job!

I created something new this week I thought you might have fun with. You see, one thing I’ve noticed in some illustrations from students across the country is that Jo’s scarf (the one the wind stole) keeps cropping up in the night sky … even in drawings for Parts 4, 5 and 6. Another interesting thing I noticed is that most of the scarves drawn by students are coloured red. Not all of them are red. Many are other colours or even multiple colours, but most of them are red. Thinking about Jo’s scarf, then, I put together a page to show you some of these illustrations from other schools and I’ve included instructions on how to make your own scarf! See the link for the “scarf” page below under “Your Class Movie and other fun stuff”.

Enjoy the next part of the story!
