Kyle and Me

Today I spent my day with Kyle. Kyle is in Mr. Lasko's class. I helped Kyle with his reading. Some people I met today were Sergei, Matthew, Adam, and Robert. Sergei is pretty funny. I also had fun in math 24. I hope I can go with Kyle again sometime. The End
P.S. Kyle and I are both Steelers fans

Newton's First Law of Motion

By: Kylee and Megan

We learned about Newton's First Law of Motion. Newton's First Law is an object at rest stays at rest unless a force acts on it; an object in motion stays in motion unless a force acts on it. This was our science lesson. Here are some pictures showing examples of Newton's First Law.

Study Island

By: Nathan
Today I learned about Study Island. It is a program on the computer that helps students on math, reading, and writing. It also helps them to get ready for the PSSA test. The PSSA test is a big test that shows how well they are doing in math and reading. The students earn ribbons for answering questions correctly. They can even play games on Study Island. My favorite game is Slingshot. The point of the game is to fling the man (with a helmet and parachute) as far as you can.

Here is a link to Study Island in case you want to try it out too.

The Schoolyard Habitat

Uploaded on authorSTREAM by globalgorillas

This is the amazing habitat. I love it here! It gives homes to many animals. I don't think there are any gorillas, though. There are many flowers and it looks beautiful in the spring and summer. In fall the students pull weeds and rake leaves. They even plant flower bulbs that bloom in the spring. In the spring, there's lots of work, too.

Here more about the habitat from my friend, Morpheus Fortuna.
