Newsela is a data base of current events stories tailor-made for classroom use. I have been using this site in my classroom for several years now and they have generously opened to the public, free of charge until the end of the school year.  

How to use the sight 

  1. Go to and follow the steps. 

  1. You will be given access to the articles I assign 

  1. Become informed! 

I have only created one class called Nelson. It is my hope that parents will read the articles as well. 

I will be adding articles for a variety of interests but the vast majority, as I am sure you would expect, are Covid19 centered.

This is an inspirational movie that demonstrates the power of the human spirit, hard work and determination.

Movie - Soul Surfer(2011) - Netflix - subtitles and language can be changed to French for those in FI. This is a great strategie for everyone. I suggest if you're not in FI to watch it twice first in English then in French.

Documentary - Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable (2019)

My favorite quote from the movie : 46:51 - "It takes a lot of determination, strength and willpower to let go and be patient with yourself"

I'd love to see pics of you watching the movie and/or hear what your favorite quotes or parts were. 

The movie is based on a book by the same name published in 2004. Bethany has since written several other books including a picture book called "Unstoppable Me".
