We finished our Mother’s day project. Next, it was time for us to take our science’s quiz. After we took the quiz, we defined our new words for a new lesson. Then when we finished defining our words, Cara and Katy finished their Mother’s Day project. We also did place mats for Sister Jean because she works at a soup kitchen for people that can’t afford food. We didn’t have a lot of time to finish the place mats because we had social studies. In social studies, we learned about osprey (a kind of bird), then it was snack time! After we had snack, it was time for our Religion unit test and it was an open book test. At 11:15am, we did math; we learned about Expressing Probability as a Fraction. Then noon, it was time for lunch!

We had indoor recess. After recess, we did Grammar. Then next, we played a game for our definitions: “Were you have to slap the word on the chalk board with a fly swatter”. Girls won the game!!!!!!!! After finishing the game, we wrote down our homework and packed up. Then it was time for Spanish. We reviewed verbs in Spanish. When Spanish was over; we went backed to the classroom and put the chairs up, said prayers, signed out and went home!!!!

Hi it’s me Nina and today is May 4, 2011. Today in school was a dress down day. We all wore pink to support breast cancer. So the first thing we did was our morning work which was spelling and after that we had library. In technology we did a social study game for our geo bowl tomorrow. After library, like usual, we checked our spelling and did two more pages. Then we moved on to grammar, in grammar we learned about prepositional phrases as adverbs. Then we all had snack break ( I always bring popcorn). Then we played a game where when the teacher says a definition we have to slap the word on the board with a fly swatter. Next we had a unit test on all of those words. After that we played a game called slaps is where the teacher says a word and you have to slap the other persons hand and spell the word. So next, always before lunch, we do math but in math all we did was check our home work because we went to the gym to see how to play la cross (Katy’s mom came in to teach us that). Finally it was lunch time.

After lunch we ha a mixed up social study science class. What the teachers did was, Miss Henderson’s class came to our class for science and our class went to Miss Henderson's room for social studies. Than we did a boat page which is our reading book. Shh, don’t tell your mom but the last thing we did was mothers day crafts. Then our day was over.

Hey this is the O’Brien chronicle of May 31 2011. When I first came in, there was nearly no one there. But then as we did our morning routine, people started coming in. After we did our morning routine, we had to do our religion then work on our books. Our books are objects we put our writing assignments in. After we prayed the rosary we did lunch count, then we did attendance, lunch bins went, and Miss O’Brien sent it all down to the office. After all that, we went to social studies. We learned about another lesson and then we went to science. In science, we played a game. When the best science class had to end, it was time for gym. When we got to gym, we did our stretches and then our gym teacher told us we could vote for what we wanted to play today, I think since it was so close to being the end of the school year. So, w e played kickball and then the score was I think 11-10 the other team. Finally it was time for math which was getting closer to lunch. We got our books out and Ava, Brooks, Tess, and Tim went to adv math, we started our lesson. When the lesson was done, we invited the other class to play Simon says for the lesson we learned for math last week. We did it with right, acute, obtuse, and straight angles. When it was time for lunch, we said prayers but Miss O’Brien started laughing and then w e all started laughing because when ever she and I look at Liam, we always start laughing because of the way the way we pause during one part of the prayer. Yay! It was time for lunch. When we finished lunch/recess, we had music. We did our music videos for the other class and they did theirs for us. Then it was time for an assembly. When the assembly was over, we packed up and went home. THANK YOU FOR READING MY O’BRIEN CHRONICLE OF MAY 31 2011
