Hello everyone! It’s Mara here today, and I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a long time. I’m starting a new category called A Day at School, that talks about my day at school everyday. I hope you enjoy!
1st Hour Math: Today in math we learned about dividing decimals a little bit further, in our math books. We covered 4 pages, which is amazing! We had no homework happily because of the fact that we didn’t finish the math lesson.
2nd Hour Science: In science we worked on are human body projects. Every one got to choose one of 6 of the human systems. Skeletal, Respiratory, Nervous, Circulatory, Integumentary, and Muscular. I’m doing Integumentary which is the skin. I’m making a google presentation, which is working out well so far.
3rd Hour P.E: Today in P.E class we did the Pacer Test. The Pacer Test, is a cardiovascular endurance test. There is a C.D that counts down 5..4…3…2…1 and then it beeps. You run across the gym then wait for the next beep and run back. You keep doing that and the beeps keep getting closer together. I got 28 which was a really good score.
4th Hour Reading: In reading we learned more about our upcoming fantasy project. We are currently all reading a fantasy book. I’m reading Maybe a Fox by Kathi Appelt and Alison McGhee. We have do a project on our book that is due May 12th. I’ve already started it, so I’m ready to go.
Lunch and Recess: For lunch, I had a clementine, Doritos, cheese, crackers, and a date fruit. It was really great. At recess my friends and I raced each other around the playground like usual. My 2 friends and I loved running around and doing cartwheels and round – offs at recess. We enjoy racing each other around the soccer court too.
6th Hour Band: Today, in band we played Day – O by Harry Belafonte and Jus’ Plain Blues by Michael Sweeney. I as you know play the clarinet. 3 other girls and 2 boys play the clarinet too. The girls who play the clarinet and the girls who play the alto – saxophone always sit together.
7th Hour Study Hall: For 7th hour today I had a study hall. I worked on my notes for Social Studies. In Social Studies, we are doing three column notes for a project about the revolutionary war of are choice. I’m doing Famous Women in the Revolutionary War. I’m doing Molly Pitcher, Patience Wright, Esther Reed, Mercy Otis Warren, and Emily Geiger.
8th Hour Social Studies: Again, I worked on my three column notes about the women in the revolutionary war. I finished my notes now, so next I have to make the project. I’m going to do trading cards for each person. I’m going to share a drawing of them and facts about them on the trading card.
9th Hour English: In English, we learned about articles [a, an, the] and demonstratives [this, those, that, these.] We did a worksheet on them and learned about them in are English textbook. Also, we figured out all the demonstratives and articles in the poem If The World Was Crazy by Shel Silverstein.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post today! Thanks for reading.
