Straw Bridges


Straw Bridges
Today Miss King told us we have to make a bridge out of straws. Miss King told us to pick 5 group each,my group was Thea, Mary, Lesieli, Sela and Jordenn which is me. I got the tape and straw from Miss King. First we planed an ideas so we know how to make the bridge, we had trouble because we were not as team. The last part we worked as a team, but we were a little muddled because some of my team weren't listening. When Miss King told us to pack up in 30 second, wed were not finished because some kids in my team were doing other stuff but not doing the bridge.Then we came and sat down on the mat.

The water


Under the sparkly blue water I splashed and kicked all the way to the end.
I coughed and sputtered. My eyes were stinging red as I climbed out of the pool.

My marble run

On Friday morning Miss King told us to make a marble run. The first time when Miss King told us that we a gonna do some marble run she told us that we have to bring some stuff at home. Miss King told us told to choose any friend you want to be in your team for marble run. I chose Sela,Mary Thea and jordenne which is me. When we done our marble run we change what didn’t work, the thing that we changed is that, the first time when we done our marble run we put Thea’s train track on the floor. Then Thea had an idea she explained to us we should put her train track on the medium table. Mary was tapping and me and Thea were doing the domino and Sela was testing the marble. My team was so amazing because we were cooperating together as a team. We tested our marble run and it didn’t work we tested again and it still didn’t work and we kept on testing and testing until it work. Then the part when we tested again and it worked, we were cheering because it really worked. We told Miss King that we done it.Then Miss King recorded and it worked again, and then Miss King told us to put it on our blog.

Straw Tower.


straw tower



Early in the morning room thirteen had to build a straw tower. First we watched a video about kids building straw tower, we watched it so we can get ideas from them. When we finished watching the video from America, Miss King told us to pick six teams to plan how to make a straw tower.Then we come down and sit on the mat to get our materials like straws and tape.My team was Mary, Chyna, Iron,Lesieli,Sela and Jordenne witch is me.Miss King gave us 75 straw to make our straw tower. My team thought it wasn’t a competition, then Miss King told us it was a compitision. I was so frightend when she said it was a competition.
First we made a square at the bottom to build it all the way up top.Then Mary had an idea, she said someone should help her because she is doing the top one and I do the bottom. Then Sela wanted to help Mary to build the top one, and Iron wanted to help me and Mary because she cuts the tape for all of us. Chyna and Lesieli wanted to help.We tried to make it big and it was so crazy. Mary’s one was straight and our one was a little bit bad but at least we worked as a team. Our one tried to balance but it nearlly fell. When miss king told us to take it on the blue table me and Mary tried to hold it but it kept on falling down on the ground. Me and Mary put it on the blue table and sat down on the mat.The boy’s one was the tallest one,our one was bad and crazy. Miss King told us the winner, she told us it was the boy’s which is Jabez,Uili,Levi,Shalom,Robert and Rocky.
