The Monster Project: Student-Led Conferences Comments

This is a picture of the completed monster that our class worked on for the Monster Project.  Our class decided that our monster's name was Scaredy Cat.  Each student was part of a group that worked on the different parts of the monster.  Please have your child tell you something about one of the parts that they worked on. - Miss Matsumoto

I worked on the feet. They are green. There was two of them. I had fun working in a group of three with Lara A. and Mia.

I made the eyes and legs.

I worked on the toes -they are pink. 

I worked on the arms, we had to put a unicorn tattoo on the arms. We used a big ruler to know how long the arms are. 
- Lexie

The monster was fun building.  I was working on the eyes and now I am working on the legs.  The monster project made me excited!

I made the neck first, and then I colored lines white and red, and then I painted them the same color.  I did the head and ummm I painted it red with yellow stitches all over it.  It was fun!

My monster part was the body and mouth. And the body was painted green and it had bugs all over it and that's it.
- Stella

I worked on the toes for the Monster project, the things that I used were Fabric, glue, yarn and pencil crayons. It was VERY fun!

I did the neck and head. We added scars in our group.  It looked good!

I worked on the lips and the body.  We made it with scissors and tape.
- Kale

I worked on the arms

Building the monster was fun! We used egg cartons for the bones for the arms, and we painted the bones tie-die!
- Ella

I worked on the feet and it's the color green!
- Lara A.

I worked on the eyes. One on the chin and on the forehead. The leg was bloody armor made out of fabric. it was fun.

Smartie Math!!

In Smartie math, at the end if we are done we can eat our Smarites. - Stella

We coloured the Smartie math and we counted. - Prince

We used Smarties. - M.

First for Smartie math we wrote our name on the back.  Second we got our Smarties.  And then we coloured the Smarties in on the paper.  Then we opened our box of Smarties.  And then we filled in the blank spaces on the paper.  Then we coloured the boxes of the Smartie colours. - Carter

At the end, we got to eat the Smarties.  They were yummy! - Tanaye

We got papers and we coloured them in.  Then we counted the Smarties in the paper. - F.

Our class did some Smartie math last week in school.  Using Smarties, our class counted and graphed the Smarties by colour.  After finishing, everyone was able to enjoy the Smarties!

First we get a pinch of tissue paper.  And we put it on our pencils.  Then we put the tissue paper on the back of the pencil, it's flat and put it in the glue and put it on the poppy picture. - Lara

We cut out the poppies and Miss Matsumoto put our names on the black paper.  Then we put tissue paper on a pencil, then we had to put glue on it. - Skylar

Peace is playing outside.  And we want peace, not war. - Carter

War is fighting.  And war is sometimes people dying.  Peace is nature. - Stella

We got poppies before we did our blog. - Isabella

Peace is helping other people and peace is sharing with people.  War is when people fight.  We want peace, not war. - Lexie

In the morning yesterday, our class carved four pumpkins in our table groups.  Each table group had one pumpkin to carve.  They decided as a group what their pumpkin would look like.  When we finished carving the pumpkins, each table group counted the seeds.  We used special paper to help us count the seeds by 10.  The pumpkin with the most seeds had 544 seeds!!  In the afternoon it was our school's costume parade.  We walked through every classroom and were able to see everyone's costume.  After that, we had had a classroom party with lots of treats.  It was a great day!!
