EAT HEALTHY, EAT HEALTHY!!!! Isn't it funny we had an assembly about eating healthy after a night of eating candy for dinner (ha-ha)? Today we attended an assembly about eating healthy and eating at least one of the foods from all five of the food groups (protein, grains, calcium, vegetables, and fruits). We played a game in which the students had to place the food in the right food group. In some cases students didn't get it right. But we all learned a lot of important things. Following the assembly, in math, we finished our Excel worksheet. This is the one which the answers to the problems add up to a certain number provided. Then we learned about line graphs, double bar graphs, and stem and leaf plots. We learned that line graphs progress over a period of time; that double bar graphs provide for two sets of data; and that stem and leaf plots show groups of data arranged by place value. Normally we would do yoga after math, but because of the assembly it was canceled. Miss Swanlund is our yoga teacher.
After snack, we read our class story for language arts. In the story, there are two main characters, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo, the founders of the American Express Company. It was neat to learn about one of the biggest banks in our country. During writing class we learned about "ou", "oi", "oy" and "ow" sounds. Finally the long morning was over and it was time for lunch. It was loud in the lunch room, as usual!!! Some things in my lunch were healthy and some were not. After eating we went out to the playground and I played with my friends.
When we came inside, we read our class chapter book called Worth. Nathaniel throws a book out of his window and John picks it up and tries to read, but he can't read it because he never went to school. Mr. Kootman reads the book to us. He is good at making us see the picture in our minds. Today we started science. I've been waiting all year for us to start science. It's one of my favorite subjects. We are learning about plants and how they grow. Plants make oxygen for us and we let off carbon dioxide for the plants to use.
Finally, we all packed our books in our backpacks. Everyone walked or got on the bus to go home - it was really crowded on my bus.
