Reported by Ryan
Today it was a cloudy morning at
school. It was wet with lots of puddles. Hi, my name is Ryan and I
will be going over todayís activities with my class. We went to the
multipurpose room because it was too wet to play on
To start it off, we checked if we
had all our homework. Our homework was a spelling crossword puzzle
and a Science Weekly, which we had three days to do. Mr. Coley said,
ďGive yourself two dollars in Coley Cash if you had your name,
number and date in the upper right hand corner for your spelling. In
addition, P.E. was rained out, so we didnít run today.
In D.M.A., we corrected sentences,
did analogies and a geography question. A sample sentence corrected
was, Soon, the farmer was very rich, and he began to get greedy.
It was a surprise quiz grade was today! We all turned our notebooks
in to Mr. Coley.
Afterwards, we corrected our
homework. First, we corrected our spelling crossword puzzle. Our
teacher, Mr. Coley, called on people for the answers to the
questions. Once we finished, we added up all the mistakes. I had
zero. Next, we did our Science Weekly. It is a thing where we have
three days to find the answers on the newspaper Mr. Coley bought for
us. We highlight where we found the answers just to make sure we
donít cheat. Again, our teacher called on people for where they
highlighted it and the answer.
After that, WE corrected our science
I.L.T. (independent learning tool). It was short. After, we
listened to the Coleycast that some people made. I was one of them.
It was on a Social Studies unit. I talked about Jamestown along with
four other speakers. Trevor was the host; Maia talked about Henry
Hudson, Connor with Roanoke and Ethan with joke time about pilgrims,
Then the fun time came! We were
going to watch a movie, Where the Red Fern Grows!!! Itís
about a boy and his two dogs going on hunts together. Then, his
grandpa heard about a championship coon hunt. He asked Billy if he
wanted to enter. He entered. The first night he qualified into the
finals. In the middle of the finals, a big storm hit right when they
treed three coons! They were missing Grandpa!! Billy told his dogs
to find Grandpa and forget the hunt. Find him they did. They took
him back to the camp. The man who won gave the money and the trophy
to Billy. Soon after, the dogs treed a cougar. Old Dan was lashed at
and was hit. He died in front of Billy. Two days later, Little Ann
drug herself over to Old Danís Grave, and she died on the spot. He
buried both of the dogs. Before he moved, he took one last look at
them. He was surprised when he saw a red fern. It means that place
is sacred forever. Following that, we did a worksheet on what was
similar and different from the book or movie.
At recess, it was too wet to play
again, so we walked to the multipurpose room. We watched a movie
called Aladdin. You probably know that movie. I spent my free
time reading, while others talked, watched the movie or played hand-
games. Then the bell rang.
Upon returning to class, we went
over our sheets for the movie. In addition, we prepared for Bingo
tomorrow. We created the board by drawling holiday items in the
boxes. Our number was chosen and we picked which item we wanted to
draw. Some people drew two pictures. Then, Mr. Coley would print
more and make enough copies. Afterwards, Mr. Coley needed to write
the name of the person who created the art under the picture. Before
our teacher told them to say their name, people would yell, ďMine!
Mine!Ē Then Mr. Coley Read aloud, Mystery of the Vanishing
Creatures. A new boy joined the science club. He is shy but also
smart. After the bell rang, Chantalís turtle went missing! Katelyn
thought it was Pablo because he plays jokes on everyone. She asked
him. He was surprised she thought he did it. He said, ďNo, I didnít
Next, we ate lunch. I was starving!!
We ate with our friends and talked. When we were playing, we played
Nationball. It was Ms. Becker and Martinezís class against Mr.
Coleyís and Henningís class. It was a battle. The bell rang after a
fun game of Nationball.
Following lunch, we silent read.
Again, I read my book, Magyk. Some people did Literature Circles
jobs. Mr. Coley recorded people for
Coleycast number 50. Thatís a lot of Coleycasts!! The art time
came. We did pin art! Some people finished four pin arts. If you
donít know what it is, it is very fun. There are dots and with a
pin, you poke holes on the dots. Then, you put it up to the sunlight
and taadaa you see the shape you made!!!
Following that, we announced the
Quiet Seat. Mr. Coley gave clues to who it was. It ended up being
Elaina!! Enjoy that Airhead [the prize she received]!! I look
forward to writing another Roving Reporter. See you next time!! Bye.
