Today my post will be about smoking and the effects. I learned that when you smoke the smoke will go to your lungs and make it black every time you smoke and the microscopic hairs, called cilia, which is hair that keeps the bad air you breath on your lungs will die and you won’t breath in fresh air. When you start smoking it is very hard to quite and when you smoke it makes your skin wrinkly and your teeth will slowly fall away and you will also have bad breath, the worst thing is that you will die faster than people who don’t smoke! Luckily there are Electronic cigarettes which have many scent and it is not bad for you. When I knew about this information I never want to smoke and never want to start smoking. I know one thing that you shouldn’t do, and thats smoking!
Yesterday the whole fourth grade went to the HS GYM to see the guest speaker which is Mr. Sylvester. We did some tag games and the first one we did was Toilet Tag because we were waiting for Ms.Sylvester’s class, then we played Octopus Tag and we did a lot of running. The last one we played was People of People. For the lesson I learned that 60% of our body is made out of water, 20% is healthy fat, and 20% of our body is our body tissues! Doing the activity was very fun and I also learned when we exercise we get more energy and when we sit around and do nothing we get more tired. Our body needs at least 60 minute of exercise! It was a fun experience at the HS GYM.
The last two weeks we have been observing our school. I saw a fan looking tree. It is very smooth, the texture in the middle is very cool because it has a zig zag line, it also has a red line. One of the coolest thing I’ve seen this week was a very light gray dragonfly. It was very close to camouflage. Last week we saw a dead barn owl, we think it hit it’s head on the glass very hard. Today we saw our buddies and we got to do some bar graphs, we also get to eat 10 M & Ms!

This Wednesday I returned to school. On Wednesday we also saw a dead barn owl. The barn owl hit it’s head so hard that the owl died.Thursday Andrew built a tower out of base 10 blocks with Brooke and Sangeun’s help. The tower was taller than Ms. Weiss! I was also absent until Wednesday.
Title: Happy Holiday
Yesterday we made card for our buddies. Today we gave our buddies the holiday card that we made. Today we celebrated Jia-Chi’s birthday. We also did a holiday rotation, I made a Rudolph book mark and a snow flake. Yesterday we went to see the buddies concert. Juhae is leaving to Korea FOREVER! Happy Holiday! See you in 2017!!!
This week on Wednesday, we had a math morning. Some of our parents came to our classroom. First we showed our parents what a number talk looks like in our class. We showed them how to decompose a rectangle. Then we played games! There were 5 different games to choose from. I played 2 games with Ms.Sylvester and Brooke. It was very fun. We played the array game, and the treasure chest game.
Topic: Event in this week
This week we celebrated Brook’s birthday. We ate a good nice treat made out of peanut butter, chocolate chips, and coconut strips. Ms. Weiss also open the song cheerleader. Some of us sang in the high school plaza. We sang We Are The World, SSIS song, Wake up song, Sky Boat song, and Together we can change The World. We also called Ms. Weiss’s parents through Skype to say Happy Thanksgiving. We called several time but it didn’t work then when Ms. Weiss’s mom figured it out she called us and let us see Silver and Pete! Silver had to cut her leg because when she was born one of her leg was injured.
The last 2 weeks have been very exciting. We did many activities and had some special events. Here are 3 of my favorite events.
The first thing I really liked was the ice skating field trip because we got to ice skate for 3 hours, we did it because we are learning about forces. We learn that when we push something rough on ice is better than smooth. The purpose of this was to learn about forces and friction.
The second thing I really liked was tug of war because we tried many different teams and it was very excited, we did it because we were finding what surface is the best to play tug of war. We learn that the best surface was the none slippery, hard, and dry surface. The purpose of this was we were seeing what team used more force.
The third thing that I really liked was the ping pong ball and golf ball flicking because it was very fun, we did it because we were seeing what kind of ball move the farthest. I learn that if you flick a golf ball it will hurt your finger so badly. The purpose of this was seeing what kind of ball move the farthest.
