The Race

Walt: Learning hot to write a recount
Have you ever wrote a story about you running before? Well guess what Mr Goodwin said we were going to do a lame experience. I was a little excited.

Mr Goodwin told us to put our chrome books away on a table or somewhere safe. It was strange. Next he told us to line up outside the classroom. We walked quietly towards the field and stood between the goal post. I was thinking we were going to run across the field.

Mr Goodwin told us instructions he said from here we have to run to the other side of the goal post and back. He also said that we needed to be quiet for the other classes. I was like what. Next Mr Goodwin said we had to sprint and I knew I would get tired. Mr Goodwin said GO!

I sprinted to the goal post the grabbed pole turned around and started puffing. I started to jog half of the way back and then I sprinted the rest to get it over and done with. I dropped to the ground and puffing I was tired.  I did not like it so I hope we never do that ever again.

Mr Goodwin put us in line's he said “I'll put you in 2 lines and you will get a number 1 or 2. I was in line 1. The line were for which drinking fountain we had to go to. I felt thirsty and tired. The water made me stop puffing and I felt better.

Task Description: We had tell a recount about us running on the field. We also are practicing for a writing test tomorrow. I liked what I wrote. Please leave a comment.

News Paper Tower.

Walt: write a recount about our experience.

Have you ever made a tower made out of newspaper free standing? Well guess what it was no ordinary day because, our class got into group’s and made a tower out of newspaper.  It was exciting.

Mr Goodwin was showing us a video. When I saw what the video was  before he played the video, I sneakily said to my friend “I have watched this before”  in a whisper. After the video Mr Goodwin said we have to try make the tallest tower made with newspaper.  It had to be free standing. I was excited and thinking it would be easy. Until we got to building.

Mr Goodwin gave us a paper and a pencil to write our plan. It was crazy and hard to try and figure out how to make it work. When we finished plan happily we thought it would be free standed we were excited to start. I was thinking we were gonna come first place and I liked our idea.

As soon as we started my freind and cut the newspaper in quarters and the others just crunch them up in balls but as my friend was putting it together. I realize it is not gonna work. I turned around and saw the other group’s one and it was tall but I knew it will fall because they were holding it. My group starting to roll up the paper and stack it. TIME was UP Mr Goodwin said “drop the towers” everyone dropped it and the towers fell to the ground but he gave us one more chance just 2 more minutes.

I now know that next time we need something to stand the tower. I also learnt not to roll to thin other wise it will bend and fall. My group came 3rd and the group that came 1st had a tall free standing newspaper tower. The group that came 2nd rolled it up and standed it. I am glad that we came 3rd.

Task Description: We created a tower made out of newspaper. It was a fun experience we had to do a recount about our experience we had. It was really fun. Please leave a comment.
