Just for fun: are you ready for some football?

This post is just for fun, which means that you do not have to respond to it. If you do respond, please remember to proofread your comment for spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.

As we dive into football season, I have one question: Who is your favorite team? WHY is that team your favorite? Do you have other teams that you also like to root for? Do you just like to pick a team each game to cheer on?

Mr. Mackey likes the Cowboys because when he was a kid, Herschel Walker was on their team. Herschel Walker was a running back who won the Heisman Trophy in 1982.

Max likes the Cowboys because that’s the team his dad likes. 🙂

Create a Book Buzz!

Some time before next Tuesday (Oct 28), please create a BOOK BUZZ for a book that you have read over the summer or this year. Remember to include the TITLE and the AUTHOR (look up the book if you aren’t sure). You should include a brief summary and then add in why the book is irresistible. Remember to connect the book to other books. See my example comment if you are stuck. 🙂

5th Grade Hike!

How was the 5th grade hike? What was your favorite part? Did anything surprise you? Did anything make you laugh? Did you see anything unexpected? Did you learn anything new? Is there anything you would have changed or done differently if you could do it again?

Pick at least 3 questions & respond to them. 🙂

Welcome to the 5th Grade Blog!

Here you will be able to talk with each other and with your teacher about different things that happen this year. At the beginning of the year, I will be writing the posts, but as we move forward, you can come up with ideas, too! Do you have any ideas of things that have already happened that you can discuss? Comment here. 🙂
