Every Monday we do journals. One person does a student blog and a few people have already done the blog. When there is 15 or 20 minutes left of journals we get in a circle and we share. First we share with someone beside us and we share what we wrote that day. After when most people have shared we share with the whole class. When a person is done reading they ask anyone for a complement. Then after school the teacher reads our writing and gives us a good complement and something we have to work on. Next writing class we read our good complement and the thing that we need to work on. She always tries to give us a thing that we need to work on but sometimes she can't, but she tries to.
On Friday we had book buddies with grade 1 Conrod/Negus. We were making portraits of each other because it was picture day. The little buddies got to take home our portraits of them and we got to take home the little buddies portrait of us. Like always when we finished we got to read with our buddies. The week before we made word searches for our little buddies. In the word searches we put in words that were from our interviews we did with them on the first book buddy day. Our buddies loved the word searches we made for them! When our school did the Terry Fox walk we walked with our book buddies. Doing book buddies is so much fun!
Hello! One of my favorite things about Mrs. Banks class is one of the things we do at the end of the day. It's math centers! As a matter a fact we actually got two new ones last time! They're called Qwirkle and Seven Flipped. I haven't played them yet but i'm hoping to soon. Anyway one of my favorite ones is Pin Point! This one I can explain. So this one is a spot the difference game. You need to look at a card and it will look like they're the same but they're not. They're are tiny differences. And you need to be the first one in your group to find the one that's not different from all the others. And that's all I have to say about math centers!
Today our class went to gym right before recess. We were playing a type of capture the flag but with a lot of flags. There were around 13 flags for each team, there were two teams the pennies team and the shirts team. How the game works: there are two sides each side was trying to get to the other side and get a flag which were bean bags without getting tagged. When we got there we were safe and we had to put it on top of our heads and we got a free pass to the other side. But if it fell we had to sit were we were and if we got tagged we sit down. To get back up somebody from their team had to free them. Most of our classmates where playing fairly, some where not but everyone was having fun. The pennies won both the games and everyone had a fantastic gym class.
