THE READING SUPER BOWL!

Are You Ready Sign

This week, the fourth and fifth graders participated in the first ever,

Reading Super Bowl!

Mrs. Yax, Mr. Bohon, and Mrs. Kreller & Mrs. Moore’s classes all competed to see which grade level could score the most points by reading. For every 10 pages read, the students scored a six-point Touchdown. Every 10 pages read at home required a parent/grandparent signature. Each student scored an extra point for their team by returning their Tuesday reading homework with a signature on Wednesday. The winning team got a popcorn reward.

Congratulations to the 4th graders for winning the Reading Super Bowl!

This week, we were all cheering, “Touchdown!”

International Show and Tell

Well, that was fun.

Today, we were able to meet Mrs. Monaghan’s class in England through Skype. During our blogging conversations, we discovered words we didn’t know and items we hadn’t heard before. We found out that we sometimes call the same things by different names. So, we decided to play a game of International Show and Tell.

.

.

Middleham started us off, “We think you might not know what a Fat Rascal is.” And, we didn’t. When they showed us what it looked like, we yelled, “It’s a cookie!” They told us it was actually a scone. None of the children in our class eat scones, but adults sometimes have it with coffee.


They continued to challenge us with
Flat Cap
IRN BRU
Double Decker
Rugby
Teletubbies
& Freddo


We knew 3 of their terms.


The Techie Kids tried a few of our own terms too. We asked if they knew
Gatorade
Skylanders
S’Mores
Vernors
Band-Aid
Barrette

.
They knew or were able to figure out most of these terms. We loved hearing what they called some of the items. We found out that the drink we call pop, they call “fizzy drinks.” They call Band-Aids, “plasters” and barettes, “hair-slides.”

.

Here’s an Animoto of the excitement.

Only 1 student in Mrs. Monaghan’s class had heard of a S’More before. They told us that they would be going camping soon. We thought it was important that they knew how to make these delicious snacks before they left!

Here’s our Snapguide teaching you how to make a S’More.

There were many more items we wanted to share, but didn’t have time.
Here is a SlideShare game we made for you. See if you can figure it out before clicking to the next slide.

Thanks for a super fun game!
