I've missed my friends!

WHOAAA! Man, I have been a busy bunny!!! I celebrated Unity Day with school to prevent bullying, and we sure had a great turn out!

Our first 9 weeks of school is officially over, and my friends and I ended up doing pretty well with our grades. We covered SO MUCH information in such a short amount of time.  I can't wait to see what we learn in the next 9 weeks.

We have started another PBL project. This project is over inferencing, summary and context clues. Mom is even letting us decide how we are going to present our project. I think I want to use Aurasma so that I can do Augmented Reality for my project! Some of my friends are super creative and have decided to record a song and interpretive dance about their summary. Plus, we finally got our books that we have to read and they are from my FAVORITE genre, biography. Oh my gosh! I love biographies! One day I hope to have a biography written about me.

So along with being busy, I've also been crazy! Here are some pictures of me from the past two weeks.
 Just chillin! If I finish my homework early, my parents let me watch some t.v. before bed. 

 Mom is so fun to climb on!

 Saturday was my sister, Mallo's, 3rd birthday! Happy birthday Mallo!

 I like to give Mom kisses!

Well, time to get back to class. We are talking about elaborate detail and how to use it wisely in our writing. I LOVE WRITING!

Have a Hoppy Day!

Lots of Pictures ahead!

Hey Friends!

I can't believe it has been a week since my last blog post. I have been one crazy busy little bunny!
 (I even jumped in the trashcan again at school.)
I've gotten so used to my parents now, that I even let them pick me up and hold me without squealing or squirming!

I can't wait to show you pictures to update you on what I have been doing this past week! *ps it is at the bottom of the post.

School has been so fun. We have been learning about Biographies, Mixtures and Solutions, 2x2 digit multiplication and much more! My favorite part is definitely Writing. We are starting to learn how to identify types of Narratives. Today we dove into Personal Experience Narratives. My friends did so well with it and even identified certain features that classify it as a Personal Narrative. They identified things such as the Main Character being ourselves, it follows a beginning, middle and end sequence, and uses lots of descriptive details!

Something else we are mastering is the use of periods and commas. Today we got to periods and list making commas. Man, my friends cranked those examples out like professionals! I'm so proud of how smart they are!

Whelp, time to do some homework! I have my spelling contract, reading log and my 3x and 6x tables. I'm such a studious bunny.

By the way here are all my pictures!

 My superhero name is The Green Snout! I get veggie mustaches at night. :)

 I like to steal Mom's sodas when she isn't expecting it!

I also like to hide under the sink if Mom turns her back for a minute.

 I attempted to look cute when I stole Mallo's dog food.

 Hey! Look! It's my friends. Our class got custom shirts that say "The Book-n-ator and the Booklets", which is Mom's superhero name and the kids' sidekick name, from the RISE program at Steele Accelerated High School and my grandma!

Life is great! Good night, dear friends!

Out of my shell

Hey friends!

 Each day I become more and more CRAZY!! My new favorite activity is climbing on Mom, Dad or Mallo like a jungle gym and then jump off and scare them! HAHA! I'm a bunny dare devil!

  Yesterday, I was a very helpful bunny. I was so nice that I even helped Mom with her graduate homework!

See, look! --->
  Today was so much fun at school! Mom let us use the school iPads to do a QR scavenger hunt for 2x1 and 2x2 digit multiplication problems. I had never used a QR code before. All you do is scan the box and a question would pop up. We then solved the problem as a group and tried to find the answer. The answer was attached to another QR code that we had to scan and then solve that problem. The other problem we found is when we didn't show our work, we usually didn't get the right answers. When that would happen and we couldn't find a matching answer and QR code, we would have to try the problem all over again.
  Something crazy happened today at school, our power went out! It was difficult, but Mom was able to teach us a lesson in Lattice Multiplication, which is a fun and easy way to do 2x2 digit multiplication. Anyways, we were so well behaved, Mom let us go to the gym for an extra 30 minutes!! YAY.
  Well it is time for bed folks! Tomorrow we have a walking field trip to the theatre to help us with our Reader's Theatre unit. Man, I hope I can sleep with all this excitement!
Sweet dreams my hoppy friends!

Dunkin's "Dramatic" Return


Oh my goodness, have I missed my online friends!? Yesterday, I had to stay home from school because I had caused too much trouble on Wednesday, and my friends were too distracted by me. I think we all learned our lesson, because Mom let me go back to school today!! It was nice to sleep in and tease Mallo all day, but I really missed school and my friends.

  I heard I missed our brainstorming on Mixtures and Solutions. Man, that is a bummer. I know a lot about mixtures! I have a mixture of vegetables every night! Solutions? Now those I don't know much about but I'm sure my friends will catch me up!

  We had our multiplication test today! We only had two minutes to solve forty problems. WHEW! I'm sure glad I memorized my 5 and 10 times table because that was a quick two minutes!

  My favorite part about today was seeing this really cool reading book. I think it was called Reader's Theater? Yea! That is what it is. We had so much fun going through the plays. Each friend was assigned a role and had to read like they were the character. The only thing my friends and I have to work on is not reading our cue lines. Cue words are the words that are in parenthesis and italicized that tell you what types of emotions, how you should say your lines or how to move on stage. That is a hard concept to get, but we are working on it! Oh and it was funny, Chelsea got to be CoCo's mom!

  All in all, my friends and I thought it was a fun introduction! I can't wait to see what play and which part I get to be on Monday! Maybe I can be Billy in the Whatchamacallit Wizardy play! He has so many lines and uses lots of emotion. Plus, you all know me! I have A LOT of attitude for one little bunny!

  Yay for another weekend of no homework! (Other than my twenty minutes of reading!) However, I need to work towards my Reading goal that I set for the month of October. My goal is to read thirty minutes EVERY NIGHT! I can do it!

Sweet Dreams my two legged friends!

P.S. I didn't get stuck in a trash can today!!

Hey friends!

  Today was...interesting. Don't get me wrong, I had fun with my friends and they taught me a lot about multiplication, but it was just interesting.

  I hope you are sitting down, because this is pretty funny. I was just hoping around the class helping out my friends with their punctuation practice, and I noticed this thing. I don't know what it is called, so I call it a thing. So anyways, this thing, caught my eye. I had sniffed and looked at it before but it never caught my interest long enough to really care about it. However, today there was something different about it, or maybe it was just my adventurous side coming out again. Either way, I had to get a better look.

 There I was just sniffing it and I got a sudden urge! It was so intense I just couldn't help it. This urge went all the way from my nose to my toes and before I knew it I jumped so high and "PLOP."

   OH MY GOSH!! Where am I? What just happened? Mom is laughing at me, my friends are laughing. Oh no, IM STUCK!!! I wriggled and wriggled and I couldn't get free. Mom reached into this thing and pulled me out, I was really embarrassed. Thank goodness though, because that was scary.

  Once Mom could catch her breath, it dawned on me what happened, I had hopped into the, dare I say it, TRASH CAN! EWWW GROSSS! Man, now I have to take like, 4 showers! Ugh, I'm so silly. I was so embarrassed! I stretched out in shame, away from my friends hoping the embarrassment would pass.

  Anyways-So today we did some more multiplication practice. I really liked the activity we did, it was like a crossword but for one digit-by-one digit multiplication. My friends did so well on it. They didn't need help figuring out how to play. Plus, they didn't have to use their multiplication charts either! They are going to do so well on their quiz Friday!

  In Language Arts, we are reading this really good book called The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Wow, is it good! (Plus, it is about a rabbit!) However, I like it because there are a bunch of hard words that my friends and I don't really understand.   We are really starting to get used to using context clues to figure out the answers. If we ask Mom about what a word means, she repeats the sentence or sentences around it and we have to use the context clues and our schema to figure out what it means. She makes us think, HARD! (In my opinion, that makes it more fun.)

  Well time to go ask Dad for Book Fair money. Tomorrow is the last day and Ms. French-Fry has some great books in there!

Good night dear friends!

PS- Don't hop into trash cans. You'll get stuck and people will laugh at you!
