Specials are something we go to in the morning to exercise, sing, or draw pictures. We all like our specials. We have PE in the mornings. Sometimes we have gym class to get ourselves warmed up. We run for 3 minutes. Some people think 3 minutes seems like 100 years. We exercise and we play hockey. Today we had a relay race and we had to flip tires over and roll them back. We do lots of things in PE. Some people like PE as their favorite special. One of our favorite things to do in PE is to play basketball.

We have had a busy two days in writing. We have been talking about nouns and adjectives. We will try to add more adjectives to our writing. We will start our February story on Wednesday. Hopefully we will remember to put more adjectives in the story. Adjectives let us know more about the story. Also we will be assigning more people to be responsible for individual blogs.

Tech Day

Today is our tech day. We are going to the library to make our February word art. The students may choose which word art they want to use. They may choose any one. They will need to think of a word to go along with February. They will write both words. They will also need to find a picture from the clip art section to put on this sheet. After Mrs. Riggs checks it, it will be printed. It will go with our February story and go in our scrap booking book. Since there is a substitute teacher for Mrs. Garrett, Mrs. Garrett's class will watch us work for a little while. We will show them how to insert the picture. Some possible words to go with February are: fantastic, amazing, glittery, funny, Valentine's, awesome, fabulous, fun, coolest, warm, famous, freezing, and fast.

Kansas City

I had hockey games on Saturday and Sunday. My hockey team was in a sport's competition and I played four games. I think that we got in first place I hope. I got to go swimming and I got to play pool. I threw a coin into a little pond. After that I went swimming again. My team ate a big dog which is a foot long hot dog. By Cooper

Valentine's Party

Yesterday we had our Valentine's Party. Everyone thought that the Valentine Party was very fun. There were several cool Valentine boxes. We played a guessing game. We tried to guess how many chocolate kisses were in a jar. We played 2 games. We played heads up -- 7up. It was really, really fun. Lots of us got cool Valentines. We ate some of our candy when we were reading our Valentines. The candy was very delicious. We found hearts around the room. We all said thank you to the people. We had a snack. It was a cookie. One person was sick on Valentine's Day. The person that was sick was Grace. Lots of moms came to help. One person went to the library because they don't celebrate it. We can't wait until the weekend.

Reading Time

We go to different reading groups. Reading is about going to the classroom and doing reading work. Some of us did workbook pages today. Mrs. Riggs' had their spelling test. They also do Word of the Week. Our Word of the Week this week is mandible. A mandible is your lower jaw or jawbone. One student brought a real mandible from his mom's office. Another thing Mrs. Riggs' group does is work on a famous person. Also we read for about 10 minutes in the beginning of the class. Mrs. Daugherty's readers have their test on Friday. Some people are reading good books during reading. Mrs. Dreyer's class read Dear Mr. Blueberry and we sent him a note. Also in her class, we are going to see what floats and what doesn't float. Also we did fun things because it was Valentine's Day. The people that go to Mrs. Dreyer's class are Cody, Nicole, Micalee, Trey, and Corey. In Mrs. Dreher's class we do guided reading. Some people may be reading books about monsters. We all think school is cool.

Almost Valentine's Day

We are getting ready for Valentine's Day. After we are done blogging, we will get out our containers if we brought one. Then we are going to pass out Valentines. If a person does not have a container, they will put them in a sack until they bring their container tomorrow. If they didn't bring their Valentines, then they will bring them tomorrow. We will have our party tomorrow afternoon at 1:30- 2:30. After that we will go to a different room to hear a Valentine book. We think Valentine's Day will be a fun day. There will be some moms at our party to help us. We don't know which moms are coming. We are all excited for our Valentine's party. We might have pop and snacks on Thursday. We all hope that we have delicious snacks. Some of us wonder what kind of Valentines we will get. Have a happy Valentine's Day. We might do Valentine crafts. We all think Valentine's Day is very cool. One of us does not celebrate Valentines. Some of us decorated our boxes really cool. Some candy might be the same. We hope you have a good Valentine's Day. I hope everyone has fun with their Valentines. I hope the Valentine books are really good.

No School on Wednesday

On Wednesday there was no school because of the snow. Some people stayed inside on Wednesday. On Wednesday some people were happy because of school being canceled. One person went on the computer and made a penguin on Club Penguin. Another person was still sick. Some people went outside and went on a sled ride. Maybe they went to Sunnyside. Others shoveled the driveway and other places. Others stayed inside by their fireplace to get warm. Some people pulled snow off their rooftop because it was so heavy. It looked like a shovel, but it wasn't. Some played a High School Musical game. Lots of people read for Book-It and Read - A - Thon. Some went to their grandma's. We all had lots of fun on Wednesday.

Fun Days at School

We have lots of fun days at school everyday. In October we got to wear our costumes. November was fun because we got to make a scarecrow. December was the most fun on earth because we got to open presents. We will watch the movie called the Little Giants. We ate our lunches in Mrs. Garrett's room. We just got done with the movie. Some of the time we do centers and watch a movie. The movie was great and funny. All of us liked the movie a lot.
