Meet our friends, the milkweed bugs. We got them two weeks ago, when they were still in their eggs. The eggs were teeny tiny. They were smaller than a jelly bean, smaller than a grain of rice, even smaller than the tip of a pencil! They started out yellow, and the instruction book said they would turn dark orange when they were ready to hatch. But they actually turned red! We were super excited! We couldn't wait for them to hatch! We made some predictions about how they would look. Then, over the weekend, when we had a snow day, they finally hatched. We were surprised that they looked different than we thought. Check them out!
Hello, and welcome to Troy Island! Do you have what it takes to survive here? In Social Studies, we have been studying all about the environment. We learned that if there was no such thing as nature, humans would not exist! That's because nature gives us all the things we need to survive. After we learned how humans use nature to make things we need, we played Survivor: Troy Island. We had to find things in an island environment to make food, clothing, and shelter. Then, each team got to explain what they made. If the class thought they wouldn't survive, they had their torch extinguished! So far, all the groups have survived!
My name is Connor, and I am very good at soccer. I have lots of friends. We like to play dinosaur tag. We all start off as plant eaters, and one person picks a meat eating dinosaur. Then if they tag us, we become meat eaters. The play structure is only safe for thirty seconds! I also like to play football. I like hockey, too. That's my story for now! Bye!
I am Mrs. Freeman, and I am being held hostage by 26 wonderful, loving second graders! They MADE me start this blog topic. In fact, I tried to say no, because it embarrassed me. Then Connor, the outstanding blogger of the week, beat me in a fierce game of Rock-Paper-Scissors, so I had no choice! They were so excited that they chanted and cheered for Connor. But they can't make me brag! Ha ha! So, if they want to write any details, they'll have to do it in the comments!
Hi, I'm James, and I like baseball. My parents said they would sign me up for Little League this year. I really look forward to that, because I want to be on a team and I look up to the Tigers. On the seventh of January, 2014, I got another baby brother. He cries a lot! But he's fun to play with. Usually I just hold him. And that's the story of me.
This blog is maintained as a collaboration between all students and myself. Each week, one student has the classroom job of "Blogger". That student helps decide subjects for our posts, as well as writing one blog post about him/herself.
