Christmas Time

For Christmas, I already got one thing I wanted, and that's for Davo to stay with us.

The other thing I really want is a new desk. I wrote Santa a note, but I am worried he won't get it in time. So, I thought I could put it on my blog, but I don't know if Santa will see it:

Does Santa know how to blog? And if so, will he get my list?

Will you help me by taking the poll?

Get your own Poll!

Do you think Santa will get my list?
What's on your list?

Vegemite Power!

Miss W came to my class. She was talking to us, and asking questions and answering our questions about animals in Australia

She showed us some stuff in her bag. She had Davo and she had the card with a Tasmanian Devil on it.

She also brought Vegemite for us to try another day. So, my mom came to our class to help us try out the Vegemite, and that was our snack. 

Here's a show I made for you about our trying Vegemite:

We ate our Vegemite on plain crackers with butter and a tiny amount of Vegemite. I loved it. It reminded me of soy sauce, and I love adding soy sauce to my food, especially rice, vegetables, and chicken.

Have you had food from a different country? Did you like it?
Have you ever had Vegemite? If so, did you like it?
How do you like to eat your Vegemite?

Happy Halloween

Do you know who I wanted to dress up as for Halloween? I wanted to dress as Mr. "Davo" Devil, but since I'm a girl and Mr. Davo is traveling with Miss W, I decided to dress as Mr. Davo's cousin, Davida.

Tiny Zoo Friends -- I really like this one a lot. You can buy trees, a house, animals, humans, and restaurants. You get your money by doing jobs and picking up the food.

Curious George Stays with Em

Our class mascot is Curious George. Every weekend George gets to go home with someone from class because he can't stay at school all by himself. The Principal picked my name this time, so George got to stay with me! 

I'll tell you a little about it on my Audioboo:
Curious George (mp3)

Look at my Capzles story pictures and play the video on my on the last slide to see what we did this weekend.

I had so much fun with George! My favorite was going to the Arizona Sea Life Aquarium, but they had the big shark exhibit and turtle exhibit closed. I told George it would be okay because I'll go again some time and make a video for him to watch on my blog.

What do you think George's favorite was?
If George went to your house, what would he say was his favorite?

Quack, quack! Digital Citizenship from a Child

In my story, something bad happened, but then someone helped.

It's good to help others. It's good to be nice.

Be nice (mp3)

It's good to be nice. Help our people. Because they need help when they can't move that good. You should help other people to cross the street. Help them get money because they have no money.

Tell them the truth, and it's nice to let people on the computers.
It's really good stuff to help other people. You can figure out what other stuff you can help with other people.

It's important to say nice things on the computer.

Do you think it's important to be nice on the computer?

I want to visit Japan

Miss Lisa & me at Obon Festival
When I was asked where I want to visit and I could pick anywhere in the world, I picked Japan.

I want to visit Japan to learn how to sing and dance like Miss Lisa. She's really good at it, and it's because she moved to Japan to learn how.

Do you want to visit Japan?

I had this in another post, but want to show you what I mean. See if you can find us on stage.

Edublogs Student Challenge

I am in the Edublogs Student Challenge

Why did I join the challenge, and what do I hope to learn?
Listen to my response:
Edublog Challenge 1 Response (mp3)
My Audioboo Response

I added pink because I like pink. It was fun and I think prettier.
Because other people are doing it, and I really want to do it. So I did it.

I hope I get better at it.

I hope I can see anyone, especially like that's my age, girls and boys.

Blogging is fun. I like making stuff and putting it here. I also like seeing the dots on the map.

Do you like blogging?

My 10 Sight Words

My teacher helps me learn these words. She takes the cards out and we say it. Then we do it again. She mixes it, then we say the words again.  We do this at our chairs and on the carpet.

I learned 5 new words. I am still learning it. I'm getting better.

We forgot to do the word "I" because that's one of our words.

Do you know those words?
Do you have any questions to ask me?

It's hard to learn how to read.

Obon Festival

Hi, I went to Obon. I liked the dance. I liked to be on the stage. It was cool. Miss Lisa put me on the stage because it was her turn to sing. Miss Lisa taught me the dances. She told me to watch the other people. 

Thank you, Miss Lisa for teaching me Odori dancing. I had the best time!

Your friend,

Stick Bugs

Today I saw a stick bug at church. It was walking and was alive. I saw it two times. Mom took a picture and a video of it. Then I saw the kids hold it in their hands. It was on the tree and jumped to Keeton's hands, and then went back to the tree and crawled up.

What are your favorite bugs?

Look at what I created with Play-Doh! Yummy green beans, steak, mashed potatoes, and gravy. 

I have a clue. It's something on the plate. It has an "S" and it is white. What do you think it is?

Maybe it'll give ideas for Easter dinner. What are you eating for Easter dinner?
