It was Friday, October 13th when Mrs. Cooper’s class shook with anticipation over their very first rocket launch. While some were excited and anxious some were worried about the unlucky date. Mrs. Cooper’s class jogging out to the middle fields had been waiting for this honorable time the whole day. On the breezy, warm day people dragged out the: IPads, clinometers, launch pad, and air pump. NAJC Rocket Club were on their way to the launch pad. 10… 9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1… BLAST OFF! NAJC with high hopes watched their rocket turn over and flop. So well for everyone telling them the superstitious date wouldn’t ruin their launch. Da Humble Rockets ran up also having high hopes. As they counted, the crowd shivered with anxiety. Finally, their rocket shot up in the air. Although their “humble” name, Da Humble Rockets were not so humble doing forward rolls and yelling in celebration!
The Fantastic Flyers stepped up hoping to fly, went up high and came back down. It was a tight race, until Space Jammers and their modesty stepped up to the plate. Space Jammers went soaring high as their rocket reached their turning point and was about to come back down, nobody could even see how far their rocket had reached. The Shooting Stars, the last group expecting to go high because of all of their fellow classmates had a lot to not look forward to. Their awfully big and puffy rocket carried so much weight that their income was not the most exciting. Their rocket only launching a couple feet was a shock to many. The superstitious date did not hold anyone or anything back!
It was Monday, October 15th when Heathcote Elementary was overwhelmed when the 5th grade rushed over and around the school and started grilling them with questions. No one was expecting these questions. “Did you boo me?” “What car do you have?” “Did you get ghosted?” Everybody answered all of the 5th graders concerns and they were buying it. We told them all of us had no idea what they were talking about. “ I was feeling anxious because I didn’t know if it was one of my friends or my brother friends, I was also scared that if I opened the door the boo-er was still at my house hiding.” Lilly Tessler a victim of booing quotes. Lilly and friends were determined to find the unidentified ghoster.
Aviv Brav quotes, “Ghosting and getting ghosted are the same type of fun because it’s fun when you get ghosted because you get candy, but on the other hand it’s fun to see your friends reactions.” Heathcote Elementary still filled with mysterious questions, the day starts lingering away. As the day falls, people start questioning friends, best friends, and even people they barely know, nobody trusts a single soul. As halloween starts to draw closer no one has a clue who the secretive, sly candy-giver was/is.

I loved writing my Colonial America book. It was a great experience because we got to research on the topics we picked, make a google slideshow using: pictures, captions, facts. When we first started it everyday I was dreading the time we had to research on our book. Then I came to realize it was one of my favorite parts of the day. I started off hating my subject Colonial Teachers then the more time I spent it started to grow on me I started to like my topic more and more.
My favorite part of the experience was making the slideshow because it was fun looking for pictures and going into google drawings and making the text features. I especially loved when people read and comment on my post. It was a great experience and I hope I can do a colonial sideshow again soon.
We have been studying Colonial America. I chose to study Colonial teachers. We have been working very hard. Here is my book below.
I hope you enjoyed the book!
It’s a brand new school year! I’m very excited! I am excited about three things: Colonial Day, having our own new chrome books and doing toy theaters!!
I am excited for Colonial Day because you get to dress up and feel the experience of the mid evil times. I am also excited having our own chrome books because you get to: do work, play games and do cool things!!
