We have started the year with our unit, Independent Me.
So far, an important fact I learned was is that a nine or ten year old should have no more than 24 grams of sugar. The most interesting activity was the chicken wings with Mr. Edwards we got to rip out the bones and muscles. I had a hard time with the lungs because it smelled bad and my bled. I would still like to learn what happens to the lungs when you smoke. I think it's important for me to learn about body systems because then I know what is right for my body.
Topic: nature tales
On Wednesday we went to see a owl but it was dead. When we turned it over blood comes out of its nose. Seeing the owl was really cool. We are not sure what kind it is but we think it is a barn owl. We also don't know if it is a boy or a girl. It was brown and white and had black spots on its chest. Ms. Fox showed it to us. One more thing we did we did was Andrew built a tower that was a little bit taller than Ms. Weiss. It was built out of base 10 and 100 blocks. Andrew had to stand on a chair to build it. At the end we got to nock it down. It was very loud . Everyone screamed.

Topic: Exciting Events in Class
The last two weeks have been very exciting. We did many activities and some special events. Here three of my favorite events.
The first thing I really liked was our ice skating field trip. What we did was we did an experiment of what would slide better on the ice, a rough side of a puck or a smooth side of a puck. I learned that force helps us in a lot of ways.
The second thing I enjoyed was our fall/winter concert. We had to work really hard to get all the songs correct. The purpose of our concert was to show the songs that we had been practicing.
The third thing I really liked was the ping pong/golf ball experiments. The purpose of our experiments was to learn about gravity. We dropped a ping pong ball and a golf ball from the same height and saw which one hit the ground first.
Today's Topic: Where are all the desks?
Today's Artifact: Classroom photo
This week, my classroom went through many changes! We got some sofas, we moved some desks, and we brought in some cushions. A yoga mat was donated, and we have some tables that are different heights. I get the choice to sit where I want to be comfortable so I can DO MY BEST WORK!!!
I think our classroom awesome because we can sit anywhere. I also think that I can focus more.
I wonder we can have more yoga mats. I also wonder if we can get more cushions.
