Seven students were successful at typing their personal narratives today. You can find them underneath this post. I encourage you to write a comment and ask questions about their story.
We are starting a new unit on place value in Math. Today we reviewed how Base Ten Blocks related to our system. We also looked at ways to express numbers using S.P.E.W. (Standard Form, Place Value, Expanded Form and Words).
The time I went mini-golfing with my dad. My dad just missed getting a hole in one. I aimed before I shot the ball and I got a whole in one. My dad missed again. He was so mad. I got another hole in one.
When I was a baby I slept in my mom and dad’s room. I wasn’t old enough to sleep on a bed so I slept on a mattress.When we all fell asleep I rolled underneath the bed .When my mom came to give me some milk I wasn’t there!she woke up daddy and said I wasn’t there! He said impossible. They turned on the light. I really wasn’t there! They thought, I wasn’t in my sister’s room. I couldn’t get stolen and I couldn’t crawl. Just then they heard a small cry and I rolled out from under the other side of the bed. Mommy came and put me back on the mattress.
Me and my family went to Mont Cascades. I was scared to go on a ride but I did it anyway. It was called Mammoth River. We waited in line. When we got our floaty I rolled it up the hill. When we got to the top of the hill we drifted down the waterslide. When the ride was over we all said we had fun.
One day me, my sister and my dad went to Calypso. When we got there it was so busy. It took us about 30 minutes to get in but I still had fun. When we got in I start to cheer, I go up, then I start walking towards my most favourite ride. Then we went on it, it was fun. After that we got a freezie for free. We went on a ton of other rides then I was tired so we went home. That was the best day ever!
One day I went to Calypso with my mom and my friends S and J.We went on a couple of rides and then the Lazy River.After that we went on more rides and the Jungle Walk.Then we decided to do the Lazy River.Then we had so much fun that we went 3 more times.
This is the time I played soccer with B.All of our class was sitting on the carpet.Then are teacher said, “Who want to play soccer?” I said yes and so did B. I was team Canada. B was team USA. I was forward. I was on a break away and B tripped me and I hurt my ankle!
It was the night we got our new dog Toby! We waited until about 8:30 pm to go to bed. Since we got a new puppy we decided to have a sleepover with our mom and dad.The bad part is he barked and barked and did not settle down.It took him about 2 hours to fall asleep.But the nights after those were way better.
Our completing our Friday Math Review quiz, we played several math board games. Here are links to some of the board games we played:
Everyone has now officially finished their first piece of writing. I look forward to sharing their personal narratives soon.
Today we also practiced parts of speech (i.e. nouns, adjectives, plural, singular, etc.) by doing a “Mad Lib” kind of activity. Click the following links for the same activities we did today:
Tonight is Meet the Teacher followed by the Berrigan barbecue. I look forward to meeting many of my students’ parents and family. I will be alternating between Mme Coupe and Mme Maki’s classrooms.
