Hi! My name is Rodrigo. My favorite sports are soccer and basketball. I have a pet dog called Mikey. He's fluffy like a furball! My favorite thing to do is watch tv and play video games, but I also play the electric guitar. I played Jingle Bells at our holiday party at school. I was a little nervous at first, but then I wasn't nervous at all. I liked telling you about my life. The end.
Buenos Dias! Nihau! Namaste! Aloha! Bonjour! Konnichi wa! Hello! We have been around the world in one hour! But we didn't actually go to real countries. We learned about them by going to lots of different stations. Each station was for a different country. There were activities and games from each country at the stations. At one station, we got to do origami. We went to ten different countries, all in one hour! See ya next year at the Schroeder World Tour!
Hi! My name is Nikhita. I will tell you my favorite things to do. I like to play ball in the house! And I like to play outside, too. My third place favorite thing to do is play on the computer. I play games like Fantage. It's like your life. You get to dress yourself up and play games in it. That website is www.fantage.com if you want to try it! So now you know about things I like to do! If you want to leave a comment, you can tell me what you like to do!
Knock! Knock! Who's there? Mystery guest! "Mystery guest" who? It's Puzzled Penguin! Puzzled Penguin is a penguin who always gets puzzled about math. We wrote him some letters to help him understand ungrouping. One week ago, we heard a knock on our door in the middle of a math lesson. We all looked toward the door. Somebody said, "Who's that?" It was Puzzled Penguin! He came to our classroom because he was still puzzled (like always). Everybody yelled, "YAAAAAYYYYYY!" He gave us high fives, and then we taught him ungrouping again. He doesn't talk, but he nodded when we asked him if he understood. For now, he's not puzzled anymore, but he might be puzzled again. And again, we will help him!
Dribble, dribble, shoot! Are you ready? There's a new guy in town. His name is Basketball Jones! Today at school, we went to an assembly. We couldn't wait, because we knew it would be so fun. The office called us down to the lunchroom. We peeked around the corner, and there he was! He plays music and does tricks with basketballs! He passes out pencil to student who show him effort and say thank you.
We learned to be kind and always say nice things to people.
Here's an extra tip: spread kindness, not the flu!
Hey, have you ever seen polluted water? It's disgusting! We know all about it because we've seen it in our classroom. We'll tell you about it. Well, you might think we had real polluted water in our classroom, but we were just experimenting! We started off with a clear tub of water with a sponge fish floating in it. Then Mrs. Freeman passed out little vials of mystery polluntants. We couldn't tell what was inside. The vials had a label on them. Then Mrs. Freeman read a story called "Who Polluted the Potomac?" We were very interested in it! When you heard your vial label, you had to come up and open the vial and pour it in the tub of water. At first we thought the water was okay, but then it got icky! It smelled like rotten fish! It looked brown! Would you swim in water like that? NO! Would you drink from it? NO! Would you boat on it? NO! We used to think that only bad people polluted, but we learned that everyone pollutes sometimes! Even us! So we need to think before we do things that might pollute!
