Ok folks, I have taken a leap of faith by stepping out of my comfort zone to ask for monetary help from the public. Yes, I am asking for money to help fund a new class project called, “iPads for Learning.” The project has several goals that I hope we as a class can accomplish by the end of the school year. One such goal is to increase time on task for each student by giving them a new tool, the iPad to encourage creativity, teamwork, and competition among their peers while completing self assigned research projects. To find out more about my ” iPads for Learning” project visit my DonorsChoose.org homepage.

(1) I worked really hard to get an “A” on my math test, but I only recieved a “B.” Oh well, I guess that’s the way the cookie crumbles. So, in this sentence it simply means that you can’t always control everything that happens.
(2) John, isn’t this the fifth time you have been late to work this week? You’re walking on thin ice mister! So, in this sentence it means that John is in danger of being fired.
What idioms can you think of and does your primary language or culture have any that are unique to where you live?
Hi There, It’s Mr. Tabbah and today I am sharing the following mini report on the Vietnam War Memorial, which is located in Washington, D.C. from one of my fabulous students. Its main purpose is to inform, while creating a learning bridge between the classroom and the use of technology. Children and students all around the world are using technology in many different ways other than just for Facebook, video games, texting, or email in today’s global community. What other ways can you think of where technology has helped you learn something new? What was it that you learned? What positive or negative impact did the technology have on your learning experience?
Hi, my name is Jonah, and last weekend I went to San Diego. It was very exciting and we saw many tremendous sights, such as the Embarcadero, a harbor in San Diego. My dad got to play baseball on the field next to it. It was so fun. We got to see this air show honoring the U. S. Navy. At the air show we got to see the flyover of the amazing Blue Angels! I thought it was pretty awesome. Plus, we got to see this antique fighter jets used in World War II. There were dozens of them flying all over the place!
One of my most favorite places in San Diego was the Midway, an aircraft carrier used in World War II, just like those jets. It was used so planes could launch into war and land to get more fuel. I was amazed how the planes could land and launches off such a small platform. One of my favorite parts was when we got to see this fighter jet used in the movie “Top Gun.” What’s your favorite vacation place to go to?
I love golf! I have been golfing for about one year now and I am able to hit up to 200 yards. Wow! I am in “First Tee” which is a Junior Golf Program. My favorite clubs are my woods and angle wedge. My favorite course is Bing Maloney. It has a driving range and two courses. Have you ever played GOLF?
Hello! My name is Kenneth A.K.A. Kenny. I am here to tell you what I like to do after school. I spend most of my weekends outside playing basketball or inside playing video games. On weekdays after school I either have basketball practice, play with LEGOS, or have a basketball game, or go to my brothers basketball games. At breakfast, I read the bible. I usually read “Genisess” chapters 1-10 about the creation of the world. That’s a lot isn’t it? What do you like to do after school?
I love the sound of music! I have a great passion for the piano. Like my piano teacher says, “practice makes perfect.” The piano makes such creative music. With additional musical instruments you can create or make up your own music. I really enjoy playing the piano. If you were to play an instrument, what would you play?
Have you ever wondered where your name came from? Well, my students’ spent a few weeks researching the orgins of their names. The following comments are samples from my students’ “What’s in A Name” essays. After reading them please leave a comment about your first or middle name only. I think you will be equally surprised to discover the meaning of your name too.
