Thank you letter

Dear Mrs Hull and Mrs Jones
I have written a little thank you letter. When I was in your class I felt a lot of emotions but I will tell you a few. I felt nervous because I knew no one except two people.  I felt like I was star struck. But I hope next time I go into your class I might make some new friends.

I also had more emotions like scared.  When someone went crazy it felt like there was a lump in my throat that I was trying to swallow. One question: has it been that bad in the past?

The emotion I felt the most was happy ๐Ÿ˜Š. For a lot of examples playing chair ball and winning, playing pole tag with my friends, and discovery that made me feel even more happy๐Ÿ˜Š even if my slime did fail.

Overall it was an emotional roller coaster but a happy one because I made some new friends because of my friend Connie.

So thank you for letting me into your class, even when the going was hard, you and  Mrs Hull helped me. So one last big thank you.

From Maggie

Eat it or wear challenge gone wrong

Eat it or wear it challenge gone
wrong
It all started on an ordinary summer's, day except there was a  laser-shooting, dancing  and singing t-Rex. It all started like this. My crazy friend, my crazy brother and I were bored out of our minds. So I said with smirk ๐Ÿ˜ “We should do the eat it or wear challenge.”
There was a long evil laugh (more like a some chuckling gone wrong). “YES!” But is this wasting food because more people need it but some is probably expired so we should use food that has expired. We grabbed some food and prance out with big cheeky smiles across our faces.
Kate said “Wait.”
“What?”
“We need art shirts๐Ÿ‘š,” she boomed.
“Oh yeah.” We slipped the ugly art shirts on with paint all over them. Then Kate and I did are last prance. It started with dunking  food everywhere. There was a pause. FOOD FIGHT!!! AAAAH.Food was everywhere but not in our mouths . We sped to the house trying to look ๐Ÿ‘€ innocent ๐Ÿ˜‡. What will happen next? Dun Dun!

science journal: week 4 trebuchet

LWeek 4: Trebuchet.
So if you have been reading my inquiry section on my blog, you know I have been working on the balloon rocket experiment. Now the class has changed to catapult aka a trebuchet. We have put lead bars in the counterweight. When you put, well let's say 20 (which was all of the weights), the counterweight would push it down and the pivot will turn the throwing arm so the sling will throw the ball and land at about 11.8m. Why is it when you put more weights why does it go so far away? I think it's because if you put more weight the throwing arm makes it  go further away. I wonder if you put more than 20 weights would it go further away or not so far. I rate myself as gathering data as Multi structural because not all of it is connected. For inferencing, multistructural because I still don't feel confident.

Week 3 drag

Last week my partner and I did  the paper and balloon experiment.  Here is what we observed. The first thing I observed was the balloon was smooth but it went wrinkly. You want to know why? It is the result of elastic pull,  so when you blow up a balloon you are pulling the elastic, so you're stretching the balloon. I wonder if air or helium stretches the balloon more. When we did not have paper ๐Ÿ“on it moved more and faster but it could be there is more weight on the balloon because that could be pushing it and making it slower. I wonder why it does that.
I rate myself for gathering data as multistructural because I'm still not so confident at gathering data. For making inferences I'm multistructural because I'm not so confident with it.

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
When we did the first talk about science, the class had to place ourselves on the rubric for inferencing  and gathering data. I placed myself unistructural for inferencing even though I don't know what inferring is but if someone walked me through it I  would get it ! Then for gathering data  I was multistructural because I have ideas like with slime aka oobleck I thought it looked the Nickelodeon slime but yellow. So I'm not sure if it was right or wrong. For engaging in Science I was m multistructural because I do science experiments but I stand back a little because I am a little person with tall people in front of me.

For the last week we have been working on a balloon rocket๐Ÿš€ . The class has been looking at the shape, distance, noise. My first…

Responsible citizen reflection

Image
When I started looking at responsible citizen I didn't know what it meant to be a responsible citizen I didn't even know much about it but I had many ideas ๐Ÿ’กfor example I thought it might be about following rules and laws or perhaps volunteering. So I guessed that I was multistructural because I had many ideas๐Ÿ’กthat were here and there and everywhere. Now I'm much better and I have learnt about being a responsible citizen. I now know what it means to be a helpful bystander. The role play we did in class helped me understand this. I now realise that turning up regularly to things like French club (which I'm not very good at turning up to) and singing is being a responsible citizen. It is also good to help out the teachers by turning up for wet day monitor duty. It is also important to include other people in games and activities.  I think I am now relational.
