The Global Read Aloud We are so excited to begin The Global Read Aloud. We are reading “The Year of Billy Miller” by Kevin Henkes!

After reading Chapter One and gathering more information about who Billy is we made predictions about the story. Our predictions had to be based on something that has already happened in the book to support our ideas.

After finishing Part 1 “Teacher” we worked in groups to answer this question. “How did Billy’s relationship with Ms. Silver change from the beginning to the end of part 1. Use your own ideas and proof from the text to support your answer.”

We practised “Good Answers” by following the RAP outline. When everyone was finished we used green and blue dot stickers to mark where groups had their own ideas and proof from the text in their answers. Then we choose the answer we thought was the best!

Emberly/ The Cupcake Reporters

Are you wondering who Emberly is?  Well, Emberly is Mrs. Muller’s grand daughter.  She was born on March 9th.  That was the due date.  Emberly weights 9.03 pounds.  Mrs. Muller’s daughter, the one who gave birth to Emberly is named Penny.  Mrs. Muller suggested that we give Emberly some advice for when she starts school.  We gave her advice like: work hard, watch out for the bullies, (but, it is not like anyone would want to hurt/tease cute, sweet little Emberly) never give up, don’t go in the wrong bathroom, and many others.  Emberly already has some brown hair and she has cute little blue eyes that sparkle in the light.  Emberly is adorable!!!Emberly

Tomato Plants/ The Cupcake Reporters

IMG_3288“I’m done Mrs. Muller.”  On April 31st our class replanted the tomato plants for Mother’s day presents.  Let us start at the beginning.   First, we traced and cut scrap booking paper to fit the sides of a cut milk carton.  Then with very shiny glue we glued the scrap booking paper onto the sides of the milk carton.  We painted one more layer on top of the scrap booking paper to make it extra shiny.  Then, we placed a tomato plant and soil in our decorated milk cartons.  Finally, we watered them and then placed them on the window ledge so, they could get some sun.  The Mother’s day crafts were a blast to make!

A Special Visitor/ The Cupcake Reporters

IMG_3282Guess what happened on April 28th?!  The mayor Cam Gutherie came to our class!!  How cool is that?  He taught us the three stages of government.  The mayor is at the bottom but, they still are very important.  He makes sure that we have sidewalks, electricity, parks, theaters and many, many other things.  He taught us about what it is like to be mayor and some very interesting things about him.  Did you know that he is a drummer in a band called” Fitness Club Fiasco”.  Isn’t that awesome?  At the end he took a class selfie and posted it on this post.  Meeting with the mayor was awesome!

Helping The Environment/ The Cupcake Reporters

On April 15th, 2015 our class decided to help out the environment.  Our class picked up tons of filthy, hideous garbage.  We weighed all of the garbage in a bag and it weighted 17.5 pounds.  The whole class picked up useless things such as: tin cans, milk cartons, cardboard, plastic paper, and many other icky things.  We even found a picture of cupcakes!!!  Isn’t that wired?  Cupcake Reporters?  Cupcake picture?  Get it???  No?  Well, whatever.  Let’s get back to topic.   Picking up garbage is a great way to help the environment.  DON’T LITTER!!!!  So, help the environment by picking up garbage and not littering!    by The Cupcake Reporters:  Anna and Kennedi
