Native Youth Olympics

Yesterday, we had visitors who told us about the Native Youth Olympics. They showed us the events that kids compete in at the NYO.    I even tried the wrist carry.  The man who came to our class to talk about the Native Youth Olympics is cool.

Tony came to school on Tuesday, and he will be here again on Thursday. I like doing the exercises.  

Physical therapy

Today I went to physical therapy. I was playing there.

We played a game of blowing bubbles, and then I got to paint on the easel. We also played with puppets and play dough. Then we did some coloring. We played with blocks and also a game or two of tic-tac-toe.  We played with the frisbee and then we played some cards and did a puzzle. Then it was time to get on a swing. then it was time to go to school. No wonder I was such a sleepyhead at school!

Mitch says that listening to me describe my day at physical therapy reminds him of a Peter, Paul and Mary song called "Autumn to May." Here are the lyrics:

Oh, once I had a little dog, his color it was brown.
I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and CLOWN.
His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide,
Around the world in half a day, upon him I could ride.

Sing tarry-o-day. Sing - Autumn to May.

Oh, once I had a little frog, he wore a vest of red,
He'd lean upon his silver cane, a tophat on his head.
He'd speak of far off places, of things to see and do,
And all the kings and queens he'd met, while sailing in a shoe.

Sing tarry-o-day. Sing - Autumn to May.

Oh, once I had a flock of sheep, they grazed upon a feather.
I'd keep them in a music box from wind or rainy weather.
And ev'ry day the sun would shine, they'd fly all through the town.
To bring me back some golden rings, and candy by the pound.

Sing tarry-o-day. Sing - Autumn to May.

Oh, once I had a downy swan, she was so very frail,
She sat upon an oyster shell, and hatched me out a snail.
The snail it changed into a bird, the bird to butterfly,
And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie.

Sing tarry-o-day. Sing - Autumn to May

Now, I want to see Spongebob on the computer.

The Scientific Method

There are five steps to the scientific method.

The first step is to ask a question. What do you want to investigate? What do you want to learn?
Yesterday, in class we investigated the question, "How many seeds are in a bean?"

The second step is to form a hypothesis.  A hypothesis is an educated guess. It is a sentence that can be proven either true or false. In my bean experiment, I guessed that there would be 8 seeds in a bean.

The next step is to do an actual experiment. We got some string beans and a knife. Then we split the beans opened with a kniife. The next step was to count the seeds in each bean. We recorded how many seeds we found in each bean.

The fourth step is to organize the data.

Finally, we have to find a conclusion. A conclusion is an answer to the question, "What did this experiment teach us?"

Halloween is fun because of Trick or Treat. I got dressed up for Halloween, too. I dressed up like Patrick from SpongeBob Square-Pants.

At least five people came to my door. We gave them candy. We had decorations at the house. We had food decorations.
