First TLC VGC Meeting! HA!
Last week we had our first TLC Virtual Games Club (VGC) meeting after school. I just love all of our acronyms, just cracks me up.
The idea for the VGC came from the TLC Student Council who wanted to try and create an after school chess club for interested students! While looking for online chess site, Dalton and Quinn came across the website gamexn.net where you can not ONLY play chess online with other people but all kinds of other games like checkers, bingo, battleship, and more! The Student Council decided on creating the VGC for any students in the TLC who wanted to play games after school every other week with each other! Cool idea, huh!?
We had our first meeting on Thursday. Dalton plugged his computer into the Tanberg so the other schools could see how to set up an account!
He lead all the kids on the other islands through the steps of creating an account and adding each other as "friends" so they could play games with one another!
Here Quinn is playing online BINGO with a partner!
His partner was none other than Miss Margaret! She was testing out some of the games with Quinn before playing with the other island students!
This eighth grader on Islesford was following Dalton's directions and then helping his classmates on his island set up their online accounts.
D & Q playing with kids from Islesford! Dalton played a game of pool and Quinn played some checkers!
Margaret got to play some checkers with a third grader from Cliff Island!
Dalton playing with an 8th grader from Islesford!
And Quinn playing with a 2nd grader from Islesford!
Margaret's checkers partner was such a great teacher!
Our first Virtual Games Club was a super success! We hope for even more kids to join us next time! Great idea student council and way to make it happen!
