We've got new mail from our epals in Nobleboro, Maine, U. S. A. describing a typical day in their lives and telling us more about their interest, activities they enjoy, and many more. It's really a great way to get to know you from across the world. We'll write back soon.
Thank You Mrs. Schuster and Mrs. Taylor for giving us the opportunity to compare our daily lives and learn how we are more alike.

Is your child getting enough sleep? Children aged 5 --> 12 need about 10- 11 hours of sleep. Getting enough sleep will help children get up on time and be ready for a full day of learning. Lack of sleep can make it difficult for students to concentrate in school and can even cause problems working and playing with friends.
Here are some tips that can help monitor your child's sleep:
- Explain to your child the importance of sleep and not to see as kind of punishment.
- Set a regular bedtime routine and stick to it.
- Make bedtime a special time. Read him/ her a story.
- Avoid big meals and caffeine less than 6 hours before bedtime.
- Set the bedroom temperature so that it's comfortable- not too warm and not too cold.
- Make sure the bedroom is quiet and dark- and without TV.
Mrs. Cheryl Arnett, what a fun winter activity! This is the sweetest project I have seen in a long time...Those snowmen are adorable... and your video is very fun to watch!

We have learned about our beloved country through different class activities. We began by brainstorming different important cities and marked them on the map. It was so interesting to use the internet to locate Lebanon on the world map. Each one of us chose a city we would like to research and did a project about our favorite places to visit and presented them to class.

Here is a slideshow of images and description showing how our friends at JNV Bhiwani School in India spend their days at school.
Thank you, Ms Namita Verma, for sharing...It's certainly a very long busy day! It's so interesting to get to know you and find out how you live together like family members. We are eager to learn how you play the "kho- kho" and "kabaddi" games. We don't play these games in our country. Why not sharing a new project about games? We love to try new games and have fun!
Ms. Baker, a warm sincere heartfelt THANK YOU for the beautiful cards and for sharing your Ramadan song with us!

"Our community has a growing number of elderly people. We have a local organization, Spectrum Generations, that helps them stay connected within our community. The community being Nobleboro and other surrounding towns. Mrs Paula welcomed this group of people into her classroom several years ago and it has grown into something very special. Students in grades 2 & 3 meet with senior buddies once a month for the entire school year. Activities are planned for each visit. Everyone enjoys making friends and creating a special bond with the elderly community. Our last visit of the year is always a little sad as buddies say good-bye for the summer.Our Voice Thread project are pictures of students with their buddy holding a Thanksgiving turkey they made together. Hope you enjoy!"

It's "Thanksgiving"! It's a time for sharing and spreading happiness. Our friends at Nobleboro Central School in Maine, USA celebrated "Thanksgiving" with their community this past Friday. All of students attended dinner along with their family members. Fall decorations were made and the cafeteria was set up for this wonderful event.
Mrs. Linda Taylor, we loved your activities on that special day. You've made the word "THANKFUL" real for your students and it's so interesting to learn how you have prepared for this holiday. Thanks for sharing and a very Happy Thanksgiving to all!
