Our Grade 5 buddies are presenting their Reader’s theatre plays, featuring idioms! Our buddies are teaching us about this fun literary feature. We are being a great audience even though we have “ants in our pants!”
We enjoyed harvesting our tower garden last week. With different lettuces and spinach we made a variety of salads. Students cut their produce off the tower, washed it, and helped prepare veggies. It was a bountiful harvest!
Mr.Blair, our school Speech and Language Pathologist, is working with our class to develop our language. We are learning to use “Etchy” to help us describe objects or items when we speak and write. The colours of Etchy are (green-group, blue-do, white eye-what does it look like, brown- what is it made of, pink-parts, white-where, orange-what else do I know?).
Today we focused on brown (what is it made of) and pink (parts). Students drew outlines of faces or houses and used various craft materials to create the details. They will be writing in their journals about what parts (details) they made and which materials they used.
We were very fortunate to have Dr.Dehghani visit our class yesterday to teach us about the heart! It was such a great learning experience. He even had students role play parts of the heart/body and create a moving circuit!
On February 15th the Civic Engineer from Associated Engineering will be coming back to test our bridges! We have just over a week to design and create our bridges in partners. The following pictures outline our materials, rules, expectations and means of testing:
Today we had a special guest from Associated Engineering teach us about the five types of bridges. We learned about each type’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as created some bridges using various classroom materials!
Today we plants our seeds for the tower garden! We put soaked rockwool in baskets, planted the seeds, sprinkled them with vermiculite and labeled them. Once they germinate (sprout) next week we will put them into the tower garden and watch them grow!

I had a very good Christmas. Here are some examples of what I got for Christmas. I got Madden Nfl 17 a video game about football. I got WWE 17 a video game about wrestling. I got a science experiment thing. And a lot of books. I hope you had a good Christmas too.
I went to Vancouver and I went to the acuarium. At the acuarium I got this awesome octopus shirt. My brother got a stuffy because he loves stuffies. And my baby brother got a shark sweater but he doesn’t like it. I also went to science world from a sea bus and then I had to go to a sky train. I got a plasma ball that has electricity in it that when you touch it the electricity goes to the glass and you can move the electricity. My brother got a thing that you can see above you. My baby brother got a big plasma bike for infants. And I saw my cousins and my uncles and my friends. I went skiing and I past level 2. My brother finished level 1 and my baby brother just watched me and my brother. That is what I did for the holidays. What did you do in the holidays?
I have some New year goals that I have to share. To be nice to my brother. To be Mrs.Rogors favourite student. To be a better reader. To do what my mom asks me to do.

And my last one is to stop asking for toys. That is all of my goals for 2017.
