Pizza Party with Mrs. Scott!

January 22, 2013-Lunch period at Mrs. Scott’s classroom…PIZZA PARTY!!!

Mrs. Scott is no longer my Language Arts teacher, same with my classmates because we changed schedules…I’m now with Ms. Jimenez class along with Gwyn, Eli, Nick, Mike, and Anna.

When Mr. Kish (our assistant principal) went over with the morning announcement at second period, he said that Mrs. Scott’s 1/2 block before (which was mine, Gwyn, Eli, Nick, Mike, and Anna’s before) read 225 books this quarter and that we will have a pizza party at lunchtime in Mrs. Scott’s room! We were soooooo HAPPY :)!

We were the smallest Language Arts class in Mrs. Scott…Actually I read 24 books this quarter and Gwyn read 54! The rest of the class probably read 50 (you do the Math :)).

So during lunch, we went to Mrs. Scott’s room along with the students who have lunch detention:)…I ate 3 pizzas: 2 sausage pizzas and 1 cheese pizza (I missed the pepperoni pizza :(..)

Alyse and Ryan was having a pizza contest…Alyse ate 4 pizzas, while Ryan ate 5 pizzas!

It was really a fun “REUNION” for us…

Message to my Language Arts classmates “before” and “now”:

You guys are so AWESOME!!!

Thank you also to Mrs. Scott for being an awesome teacher…And to Papa John’s :).

Last Day of School in 2012…

December 21,2012-Earlier in the morning, I looked through the window and found snow all over the place!

When I got to school and put my things in my locker, I headed to room 201, Mrs. Scott’s Language Arts class and when I got there, I gave Mrs. Scott my Christmas gift (a Philippine necklace). When I got to my group’s table along with Ethan, Cinthia, and Anna, we talked about having Winter Break tomorrow and where we will go.

Then, Language Arts class started. We started off by having a spelling test and I got a 19/20 which is a good grade, don’t you think :)? So, after we had a spelling test, we had a 15-minute silent reading time, and at the second period of Language Arts, Mrs. Scott let us play any board games with a partner or a group. I partnered up with Anna and, we played Scrabble…We forgot how to count the scores so we moved on to Boggle, which is one of my favorite word games, but then Ryan and Eli asked us if we wanted to trade with them (their game is Connect Four) so, I asked Anna if she wanted to, and she said sure! So, we started playing Connect Four and I really enjoyed it!

When we exited Mrs. Scott’s room, she gave us big candy canes and she said, “Have a nice winter brake!”

After Language Arts, I headed to Mr. Mielke’s Math room and started our daily routine—taking out our home works from yesterday, write our  learning target, and be ready for the QUIZ! Oh my word, QUIZ!

So, while we were taking our quiz, I thought that it will be crazy HARD but, uh-uh…it was not that hard! Even though I think the quiz wasn’t hard, I wasn’t that sure that I’ll get A+ so, I double checked it, prayed, and turned it in.

After our discussions, one of my classmates greeted Mr. Mielke “Happy Birthday”! He said his age was…Oops! Sorry, I’m not allowed to tell :)…when it was time to pack our things up, Mr. Mielke gave us candy canes!

After I got my Science notebook and book from my locker, I headed to room 203, Mrs. Hughes’ Science classroom. Ugh! The smell in our Science classroom was vomiting! I figured that the smell was an insect preservative, yes, we’re going to dissect a grasshopper.

So, while I was grabbing the dissection tools and the tray, I got a female grasshopper from Mr. Hughes and my partner, Anna and I started working on it! I understood that Anna is totally not going to touch the grasshopper which is natural. Mrs. Hughes gave us a grasshopper worksheet and we have to attach the grasshopper’s assigned body parts! Eeew! So, I cut the body parts and attached it gingerly.

After the dissecting, Mr. Hughes greeted us a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

LUNCH! While I was sitting with Michaela, Ana, and Gwyneth in lunch, it was time to deliver the candy grams. I was so excited because of the candy…Jolly Ranchers!

I had two candy grams-one from Ambar and the other from Emma. It was so nice of them to give me candy grams!

When lunch passed, I went to room 205…Mr. Ortega’s Academic Skills room. Mr. Ortega brought cupcakes for us because it was Solomon’s birthday! Then, we joked around and talked about of where we will go this winter break.

After I gathered my things, I went to Mr DuPree’s Foundations class…Guess what? We watched an 8th Grade play called “Midsummer Night’s Sleepover”!!! I sat by Ana, and the play was so funny! It is related to Shakespeare’s (did I spell the name wrong?) “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. We had so much fun! When we went back to our Foundations room, Mr. DuPree said, “Goodbye and have a nice winter brake!…Class, I’m not going to miss you”, WHAT WAS THAT FOR!? Anyway, he really said that :(.

Yey! Mrs. Larson, the awesome-est teacher of Social Studies! You ain’t going to believe this…We wrapped a person with gift wrapping and Christmas ribbons! For the girls, we wrapped Hana and for the boys, they wrapped Cale! Oh, my word…I was so AWESOME and FUN! After the wrapping, Mr. Larson said that the girls were the most creative (doo-dee-doo) :). After the wrapping and lecture, we worked on our Christmas word search and I was the first one to finish it! But, Cale said he was finished too so, I went to him while he was helping Ethan with his and ‘ya know what? He wasn’t done! Ethan marked up all the letter grids and Cale got some answer from me…Yeah, Cale! 🙂

………..Phys Ed!!! Mr. Arthurs is our Physical Education teacher. We played against Mrs. Norris’s class…We played Nokum! It was so fun and I even had a scratch on my knee due to catching a ball very near the net, thrown by Ethan :)! And the winner was…Mrs. Norris’s class…:( But for me it’s really OKAY because it was just for FUN! It was awesome to play with Mrs. Norris’s class.

I had a cool and awesome last day of school in 2012…Thank you, classmates and Franklin Middle School, see you in 2013 :)!

Funeral Friday

Yesterday, we had a “Funeral Friday” event for Language Arts. Okay, no one really died! The thing is, what we’re learning right now is to make the weak verbs like (bite, run, walk) into incredible new words! So what we did was, we made our own tombstone for our verbs and make a eulogy.

So, each one of us recited our eulogy in-front of the whole class for our assigned verbs and it was so fun!

I was the fourth to last because you know, I’m kind of a SHY girl :). But, we really had fun and some were so funny like mine, “Bite had a digesting degree” hahaha :)!

We really had so much fun 🙂 Thanks to Mrs. Scott, our Language Arts teacher :).
