My weekend was okay. On Friday my grandma came over and helped me take care of my great grandma. On Friday my great grandma had a lot more hallucinations. On Saturday me cousins Evie and Jake came over and we all took care of my grandma and we also went outside most of the day. I also read my book. That was my weekend nothing special.
In science my group made a project on Sea Stars. Everybody did one on an Invertebrates. I hope you like it.
On Friday we started to get the school ready for Mac Barnett coming today (Wednesday). My class learned how to finger knit. On Monday we finger knitted and on Tuesday our teacher put them around the school. Today we went to the school gym and listened to Mac Barnett. He answered a lot of questions. He also read one of his books The Skunk. He read a part from my favorite book by him, The Brixton Brothers, The Case of the Case of the mistaken Identity. He also drew a map and showed us how books are made. At the end all of 5th Grade took a group picture with him. I thought that Mac Barnett coming was a real privilege and I am very happy we got to see him.
This week we had two field trips in a row. The first one was to the capitol. My favorite part of the capitol was the library, I liked the library the most because of how much details there is in it. The stair cases are very pretty along with the stained class window at the top and all of the book cases. I thought the library was cool because of all of the law books that very few people could use. The capitol is very pretty in general. It has lots of big chandlers and lots of paintings on the walls.
Our other field trip was to the sculpture park and the art center. We saw a lot of different sculptures but my favorite was the person made out of different letters. We all researched an artist that has some art at the art center I did Grant Wood. But at the art center they did not have any of his art on display. Between the art center and the capitol I had a very good week. I am sorry but I could not find a picture of the art center.
We are going to the Des Moines Art center next week. My teacher wanted us to have some background knowledge so we did an animoto on 1 artist I had Grant Wood.
Over the weekend my cousins came over. My cousin Jim had a chess tournament and now he is president of his chess club. We also celebrated Easter. We grilled out, we had hot dogs, hamburgers, treso, macaroni salad, and potatoes salad. We had to feed 15 people. My cousin got 7 large stuffed animals for Easter and I got the same things she got. Overall I had a great weekend and my cousin is happy that he is president of his club now. I hope you had a good weekend too.
In reading we have made a new inquiry project on anything that we learned about in social studies that lead up to the revolutionary war. I chose to do a Powtoon a the Stamp act. I hope you learn and enjoy.
