What's Happening Everyone?

Hi Boys, Girls, Webkinz, and Teachers,

I was wondering what new things you have been learning about. It is now Fall in Canada. The leaves on the trees are changing colours, and there are many leaves on the ground now. What is the weather like where you live? Did you know that our last monarch emerged on the weekend? If you go to you can read newspaper articles by a Monarch Butterfly named Roy. He has a new article each week that tracks his journey from Canada to Mexico. It even shows where he is on a map. As you can see from this picture Mrs. Muller's Boys and Girls are taking very good care of me, and they LOVE playing with me on the Webkinz Website! I really hope to hear from some of you soon!

My first week!

Hi Everyone! I have had the best week. Every day some new JK students came to school to meet me. They worked at centres, sang songs, and took turns with me. The best part was the morning we watched this Monarch Butterfly emerge from her chrysalis. The children named her Marissa. Isn't she beautiful? From AlleyCat

Patch's first week

Well, I have already spent a week with my new friends in grade 3 and 4. I have been to literacy with them and sat on the computer keyboard while they used my website. Playing bootball was fun and I loved being out in the sunshine. It is now spring so it is great fun now with the blossom coming on the trees. The playground is really cool and the students are about to go on 2 weeks holiday.

Hi from Hawkesdale, Australia

Hi! I am a new webkinz who will live in Hawkesdale, Victoria, Australia. We like the sound of the Kinz Exchange project. Most of our students live on farms or in small country towns. An email was sent saying that our class would like to join but we had trouble getting a webkinz pet. When our teacher looked up the internet to see what shops sell webkinz in Australia, we could not find any. So, we decided to look up ebay. Luckily, there is a person on ebay selling them to interested Australians. These pets will come to Australia next year in the shops.

So, after a few problems, our pet has arrived in the post on Friday. I only got it after school, so when the students are at school today, they will open their parcel and give their pet a name. The photo below shows our parcel.

The students are in grades 3 and 4 and have been so excited about it all. The pet seemed to take forever to get to us. Anyway, goodbye for now and we will send another photo of us opening the parcel very soon.

Hello from Sunny Florida

Hi, My name is Spots. I am Mrs. Lees's second grade class pet Webkinz. Here I am with Mrs. Lees's daughter. She is a pro at keeping her Webkinz happy and healthy. She is helping her mom get me set up in cyberspace. Mrs. Lees has brought me to school and the students are so happy to have me there. One student will take me home each Friday and be my host for the weekend. They can help me decorate my room, play games, and take me out into the real world with them. After my adventures, they will write in my traveling journal and maybe even include a picture or two. I can't wait to visit each and every student's home! I will keep you posted on my adventures and can't wait to hear all about yours! Sincerely, Spots, the Leopard
