On Friday the 13th our class performed their group dramas! There were four different groups performing four different plays. The names of the plays are: The Shepherd and the Fairy, How Grandfather Spider Stole The Sun, Tiger, Brahman and Jackal, and The Lazy People. I hope you enjoy these fun filled adventures with fairies, spiders, stick figures and more. (Sarah)
This coloring book, called Earth's Landforms is what we are now doing for our morning, after-planner activity. The coloring book as pictures of landforms, which we color. After that, we name the landform and write the definition. The coloring book is an amazingly creative way for Mrs. Stanesa to have us memorize our landforms. (Julia)
Our class started learning about a new element of geography - landforms. We learned about the many kinds of landforms. So far we are almost done too. We started to make this flipbook. It starts with sea level, then we added coastal plains, then interior plains, then grassy foothills, then plateaus and canyons, and then the tallest landform, mountains! We had to describe each landform and give an example of where it is located in the world. (Jackson)
I am blogging about myths. We wrote poems. I wrote a poem about the Boggy Man and Godzilla. It was my favorite part. We also made pictures of mythical creatures. We tried to match our pictures with our poems. Can you tell which poem goes with each picture? (Colston)
We are doing research clubs for the rest of the year. The clubs are Water, Air, Minerals, Soil and Trees. We study our resources and make a R.A.N. Chart. At the end, we will present facts to the class. (Kendal)
I'm going to tell you about the Tune Into Reading assembly we saw to help us celebrate the end of March is Reading Month. "Guy" sang songs about the book Abiyoyo and learning to read. People got to dance and have fun. My favorite part was when I got to dance. Then we went home.
This week in geography we played Geography Ball. That's where we pull out desks and sit on them. Mrs. Stanesa grabs a blow-up globe then she says someone's name and then throws the globe to them. That person who catches it with both hands tells where their hands landed on the globe (which continents or oceans the palms are touching. That person then calls someone's name and throws it to that person. After you throw it you sit down and the game keeps going until there's one person left on their desk. (Owen)
Last week we were studying fables. All of us where checking why we got the grade we got in our fable packets and if we have any questions why we got that grade. While studying fables we figured out that fables have a lesson and purpose. They're also short stories, about one page and have little detail. They usually have animal characters that talk.There is one bad character that makes the problem and one good character that figures out a solution.
In class we do geometry battle ship after we finish our work. There are two grids on the paper, one on the top and one on the bottom. We write letters A through D somewhere on the top grid to mark where our ships are. To play one person would say, for example 10 degrees North and 40 degrees East. If that coordinate named a space where the other person's ship was then it was a hit and if they don't it is a miss. Then it is the other player's turn find one of your ships.
