PE: Sadly Rollerblading Ended

 Sadly Rollerblading Ended
    This week we did rollerblading but sadly today was the last day. Rollerblading was awesome after you got used to it and when you tied your blades good and tight. But sometimes it wasn't  to fun when you got stuck behind someone slower than you wanted to go.
    Rollerblading was the second best things we did this year,but skiing was the best by far.I got to skate without wrist guards because I gave mine to someone that needed them because there were not any left. There is one thing that I didn't like and that was there was not that much room to go fast or faster. I wish we could have done it outside, that would be awesome but we would have to make the black top smooth or smoother.              What did you like about rollerblading?What did you not like about Rollerblading?


Social Studies: Colonies

We got are Colonies! by Soren

Today we got our colonies/groups. I am happy with my group because they are all my friends and we work well together. I already told my colonist  that we would do a blog post every other day so that we could get extra points if blog post and comments count. I am going to do extra because Mrs.Barnes said that you should get as much wealth points as you can.
I think that it will be fun to be in a colonist simulation because last year in 4th grade we did a simulation going on the Oregon trail.I also think that it might be hard because the Oregon simulation was hard at sometimes, plus if you lost health points than you might not be able to buy something that you need.

Book Review: Jump Ship to Freedom

Jump Ship To Freedom Book Review
By: Kate
    Jump Ship to Freedom by James Lincoln Collier is a great historical fiction book, and also has a lot of facts about slavery. It is about a 14 year old boy in the mid 1800's named Daniel Arabus.
    Him and his parents belong to the Ivers'. Daniel's dad fought in the Revolutionary War to buy his family's freedom. But now he is drowned and dead and the only evidence that they are free is a soldier's note that is now in the hands of their masters. When Daniel makes a bold move to steal them back he finds himself on a ship with only the notes, headed off to the West Indies to be sold. When the ship blows way off course, they find themselves in New York, Daniel's only chance to escape.
    During this long and exciting adventure, Daniel learns the true meaning of freedom.

PE: Rollerblading

Roller blading
            By Taayan
    Today was the last day of rollerblading. We have done it all week. It's the best thing you can ever do in p.e. I love doing the limbo and the cha cha dance. I think everybody would agree.
    The first day we went over some rules about blading. Then we got our blades,helmets and wrist guards on and started blading. The second day when we came in,we went straight to putting our stuff on and started rollerblading. We did the same thing on Wednesday. On Thursday we did the same thing,except we got to do the limbo. We did the same on Friday. It was the best week of P.E. ever.
                               Would you like to rollerblade?
