O.K. 6th graders. Please do some blogging this weekend to tell others about our day. Thanks so much for a fun filled day!
We had a good day in school today. After our vocabulary tests, we wrote pen pal letters to our pen pals in Ghana. Next we traveled to St. Cloud to see Pippi Longstocking at GREAT theatre. After returning to school, we had lunch and recess. It was a beautiful day for a Dr. Dodgeball games. A few kids played in the leaves. I think they are building a fort! Our afternoon was filled with finishing up all of our projects so that after break we can start on new things. I think almost everyone made it! Everyone went to the computer lab to type a writing project about Grown Up Rules. The writings are wonderfully creative. We ended up our day today with Art class. It is time for a well deserved vacation.
Today has been a very fun day. Most of the students in class were wearing pajamas. We are starting newspapers in social studies with articles on the fur trade. It is fun learning about how to write a newspaper. We have to tell who, what, where, when and why/how. We had a vocab test today and it went smoothly for me. We are also finishing up The Birchbark House and The Game of Silence. In Theology we read an Ojibwe creation story. I like to learn about the Ojibwe.
This week has been busy. We have done many projects and experiments. On Thursday we went to radio tower field and played ultimate frisbee. Friday we will walk to the chapel for a retreat and we get peanut butter and bread.(hopefully Mrs. Anderson does not forget the knife again!) eExt week we have pajama day on Monday so DO NOT FORGET THEM!
Today we had a social test and made apple crisp in the morning. Then we had bus evacuation.We went out into the woods and wrote a psalm or poem about fall. Mrs But the most fun part of the day, was when we went biking! We biked all the way to the St. Joe rest stop. It was so cool going over the St. John's foot bridge. We were all pretty tired, hungry, and cold when we got there, but the apple crisp warmed us up. It was going back that was hard. It started raining! When we got back to school, we all fell on the ground and took a 10 minute nap. The last thing we did was went outside and practiced the dicotomis tree key for those who will be helping at collegevile colors. We had a tiring day, and are looking forward to the weekend!
