 Article posted May 7, 2009 at 11:52 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 4298 My favorite things about fourth grade so far is that we did the Crayfish unit. That s my favorite part so far because 1, we get to keep the crayfish 2, we got to learn how to hold the crayfish, and 3, we got to do experiments with the crayfish. I also can’t believe that my crayfish is still alive! I can’t believe that it’s still alive because a lot of the crayfish in my class that a kid got to keep died. I also have a second favorite part of fourth grade too; And that’s the unit that we did on electricity. It’s my second favorite part of fourth grade because we got to make circuits and conduct electricity by using metal. We also got to make a special type of circuit called a parallel circuit. A parallel circuit is a circuit that allows electricity to flow more than 1 way through a circuit. These are my favorite parts of fourth grade.

I thought fourth grade was a fantastic grade. We get to work with crayfish and play math games. We also got to make movies and after we finish our movies we invite our families to come and see them. Then after that we give them a little quiz to see if they payed attention, but we could never get them. They knew every answer. We play so many math games and like a student in our class says, "MATH ROCKS”, that is true. There are many other things that make fourth grade fantastic, but most of all what made it fun were Mr.Dugger, Mrs.D’Eramo and Mrs. Troy. They are very helpful and they make the best and funniest jokes. I would like to accomplish doing challenging math. I love room 25. FOURTH GRADE ROCKS!

If you see words you are an American, if you see animals talking, you’re a talking animal. This topic is about my favorite things in fourth grade, and my top 3 things I want to accomplish before the end of fourth grade. So far, my favorite things in fourth grade were meeting our newest student (Stanley). Another favorite part was making our DMSB video. My top three things I want to accomplish in fourth grade are 1 get more friendly 2 get better in my weaker subjects and 3 be braver. Well, I hope you enjoyed this blog. Bye.

 Article posted May 8, 2009 at 02:06 AM GMT0 • comment • Reads 1352 I am happy the tests are over.  I am looking forward to May and Spring.  My  favorite subject is crayfish. I liked it because it was really neat to hold the crayfish and Mr.Dugger showed us where to hold it and how to hold the crayfish.  Mr.Dugger told us if you hold it on that spot it will not pinch you with it's pinchers.  Another thing that I liked about crayfish is the strenghth tests. My crayfish held on for 126 seconds.  I still want to do well for the year and at the end of the yaer I want a puppy. Article posted May 8, 2009 at 02:06 AM GMT0 • comment • Reads 1352

Mine is female its still alive and it molted. And also in gemini we are making plantariums so that we could see the water cycle. What I also like about the fourth grade was the class blog and the class wiki. I also liked the science test. Well I got to stop since I am running out of paper and I have a couple of letters le.

### I think the best part of fourth grade so far must be the videos the best one that i thought was the best was the D-M-S-B because it was fun and funny. It was actully the Y-M-C-A and we turned it into D-M-S-B! We also had to put a lot of work in it like, props, clothing and who's part is who's. You can see it at teachertube.com. We made another video with place value rap! It took about two_three days to get all the things ready. For the D-M-S-B song it took about two days.It took us 1 day two film both. It was AWESOME!!!! I hope to make another one in the next 2 months. We could do a one about social studies?

Yes. We did all the test's for fourth grade. What I really like about fourth grade is you get more and more privileges. The more privileges, the more fun! Anyways, I like more privileges.
