Barkley Goes to Brandon University

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I went to Brandon University in Brandon, Manitoba. I helped Mrs. Caldwell and Miss Hunter teach education students (people who are learning to be teachers) all about Smart Boards and the Senteo response system. It was really fun to go to university and see where Mrs. Caldwell learned to be a teacher. I got to see Miss Hunter too, and meet some of the people she goes to university with. It was kind of hard to work the Senteo clickers with my webbed beaver paws, but I did a pretty good job!

Love, Barkley

Barkley Goes to Bottineau

I went to Bottineau to celebrate American Thanksgiving. Bottineau is in North Dakota in the United States of America. I had to cross the border. I got my passport stamped!

Here are some of the things I did in Bottineau:
-I slept in a real bed instead of my beaver lodge
-I rode behind a quad on a sled
-I ate lefse (Norwegian flatbread). It was yummy!
-I saw a statue of a French fur trapper named Pierre Bottineau. I think he used to hunt beavers for their fur. Yikes!
-I ate turkey and drank orange punch at Thanksgiving dinner.
-I had a super fun time.

Thank you for taking me to a new country.
