There is no “assignments” today. As we are nearing the end of our school year, I have reflected on my year at Capitol Hill and I just wanted to tell you all that my year was one of the most special years ever. After moving from school to school for the past 5 years, I have finally found a home in Capitol Hill and will love to continue to learn with you all next year. Thank you all for making my experience here so positive. I hope you all get some rest this summer and not get too bored. Tomorrow on Mrs. Armstrong’s website, there will be our final class meeting.
In the meantime, here are a few links to some games you can play:
Only two more weeks left until summer vacation. Well, Summer at least because I don’t know if any of us will be allowed to go on vacation. Today is a more relaxed day as we are done our readings of Charlotte’s Web. I hope you all get to go outside and enjoy some of the sun finally!
1. Charlotte’s Web (Paragraph writing):
In your blog post today, I want you to think about the whole story before you write a short paragraph answering the following questions.
Friendship is a major theme of the novel. Can you talk about one friendship from the story and what they did for each other in the friendship? Why was their friendship so good? Did they trust each other? Did they help each other during a hard time? Think about what the word “friend” means to you. Who are your friends? Why are they your friends? What does friendship mean to you?
Please answer most or all of the questions above in a full paragraph. (Yes, this is the last paragraph you’ll have to write this school year, I promise!)
2. ART: How to draw Wilbur and Charlotte
Here is an opportunity for you to try and draw out an image from Charlotte’s Web! Best of luck and have fun with it! You can send me your pictures to my email: email@example.com
3. Brainteasers! ( I will post the answers at 3 pm today)
4. Charlotte’s Web Movie
I’m sorry I couldn’t find the link to the newer version of this movie, but here is the original cartoon version made by Paramount back in 1973. That’s 20 years before I was born, so this is really old! Anyways, hope you enjoy the movie! Try to make a snack to eat while you watch this movie. (Example: ice cream sundae, some popcorn, nachos, chicken wings and fries if you’re feeling fancy, and maybe some candy?)
Which was NOT a reason that Wilbur had to go back to the farm?
The men would come and put him into the crate
The fairgrounds would be empty soon
He needed to keep Fern company
What is the the Chapter title? Think of a new title for it?
Why did you choose the new title? Explain yourself.
2. Letter to COVID-19 (Post this on the blog)
Task: You will be asked to write a letter to COVID-19 talking to them about how it has affected your life, how your life looks now, how it affects schools, how it affects your parents working, how it affects you meeting up with friends, and many more.
Did you know that you’ve really affected my life and the whole entire world? You locked down the whole world since March, even though we knew about you in January. I can’t believe it has been this long that you’ve stuck around. I’m sick of it … and I’m sick of you. Can you please go away forever? We understand that we will all wash our hands more. We promise. But something good that came out of this whole thing is that I can wear pajama’s to work, because I’m working from home. Another thing I love is that my wife and I got to pick up our little puppy and spend so much time with her. We are so happy about her and she is just an angel. Anyways COVID, please go away so the world can go back to normal now. Thank you very much.
PE: 10 minute family fun cardio workout (beginner)
Hi all, there will be a workout on Thursday at 10:00 am, stay tuned…
4. Challenge (Optional): Building a card tower pyramid
Try to build the biggest card tower pyramid you can. I got to build one with 7 layers before Callie ran into it and the tower collapsed. I was upset, but then she gave me the doggy eyes. She’s way too cute.
As promised you will be getting a baking challenge for this weekend. This is optional and you do not need to participate if you are busy. You will have until Friday at 10am to hand in your submissions. Please send in your 3 pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
only allowed to have 1 extra person helping
must use all 3 ingredients
can use any other materials or ingredients available at home
must take 1 picture of all your ingredients on the table
must take 1 funny picture of you baking
must take 1 picture of the final product
3 secret (not so secret anymore) ingredients:
1 can of Coke or Sprite (you can choose and you don’t have to use the whole can)
Activity after you bake:
Come up with a name for your product
Come up with a price that you will sell it for (must reasonable or else you will not sell any of it and you’ll be broke)
Explain where you would sell this product (ex. I am going to sell my product at Cactus Club for $5.99, because my creation will go nicely with their salads as it is not too heavy and it is low in calories.)
