Jasmine wrote a post on her blog about what we did today.
Today was an amazing day. We were making passports in French and we played a cool game in gym with a pin and a hoola hoop. I am not sure what was the name of the game.
My favourite part about today was art. We were making headers for our student blogs. In L.A we were writing 3 stories 2 were true and 1 was a lie.
We received this letter on our blog this morning:
We’re a class of students from South Taranaki, New Zealand. We saw the cup challenge on Mrs Mongahan and Room with a View, that had also been carried out by a class of students in India. We had to try it. We had a practise today and are going to try it properly and time it tomorrow and post it on our blog. Thanks for the great idea and we look to follow your blog.
Mr Webb and Room One, Auroa Primary School, Taranaki, New Zealand
I played BRIM. It’s worth 24 points because it was a triple word score.

Today I had lots of fun!
I played with all my friends and we played an awesome game at gym.
We also had french and math. For math we did rounding and for science we talked about energy. These are some of the kinds of energy:
That’s all I remember
The students played STEW for 14 points. That puts them back in the lead:

Today we continued reading “When You Reach Me” by Rebecca Stead. This is one of my favourite books. It’s set 1979 in New York city. One of the characters is preparing to be in a game show called $20 000 Pyramid. We watched an episode from 1979 to better understand what was going on.
We also started work on writing true (for the most part) stories about ourselves. Our first assignment is to write three stories: two will be true and one will be made up. Next week, we’ll share the stories and try to guess which story is the lie.
For math we worked on expressing numbers in standard form, by place value, expanded form and in words.
In Phys. Ed we learned a new game involving two small teams, a hula hoop, a ball and a bowling pin.
In your agenda:
FACT: House centipedes prefer crawling on women than men.
I played MOTHER. It’s worth 20 points because one of the letters is on a double word score. That takes me to the lead!
