Guest Post: Monday, September 15

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.

A Message from New Zealand

We received this letter on our blog this morning:

Mr Toft

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.

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.
