Welcome to 5th Grade!

This year our classes will use this blog (and others perhaps) to record our thoughts, share projects, review books, and many other things. We will learn to express ourselves and make our readers see what we are saying. Our writing needs to clearly describe our ideas, so we are going to help each other learn to do that.

For our first post, let's get to know one another. Tell us a little bit about you. What is something interesting or unique or even quirky about you?

I'll go first: There are many things that interest me, but fiber related hobbies are my passion. All my life I have enjoyed sewing and embroidering, but a few years ago, I learned to knit. Now it is rare for there to be a day when I don't spend at least a little time knitting. I read blogs about knitting and sewing, buy books and magazines, and even travel in order to shop in different stores!

I love technology and spend time everyday browsing online...but
my all time favorite way to relax is to read a good fiction book. Ever since first grade, when I read all six books that I got for Christmas on Christmas Day, I always have a book that I'm reading. Now that I have a Kindle, I have books stacked up, ready to read as quickly as I can.

My beloved cat, Zephyr, died Memorial Day weekend at the age of 20. My husband and I miss him very much, but we are getting to know our new cat, Midnight, who came to live with us in July. He is a fun little guy. I suspect I'll have lot of stories to share this year. For instance, recently he climbed up on a table in my sewing room and tried to catch the second hand on my clock. There are scars on the front of the clock to prove it!


Now, it's your turn. Using the comments, tell us about you!

  42. My name is Savanna. Since i was a little girl I have always liked to dance and swim. This is the first year I haven't taken dance lessons since I was 2. When I was around three I started swimming without any floats my mom called me her little fish. I was her little fish because whenever I jumped in I only came up for breath then went back under. If you wanted to tell me something you would have to tap me to tell me to come up so you could tell me something. Two years ago we got my dog Mo Mo. Mo Mo might be a dog but I still treat him like my little brother. He is about to be three in dog years. One thing about Mo Mo is that he loves to look in the mirror and bark at himself. That's what you can learn about me!

  44. I was adopted from Korea, my mother was sixteen when she had me. All my life I've wanted to meet her, but I'm glad I got to be with a great family. When we first moved to Tennessee we got a two year old kitten. A year later she died from kidney failure. A year later we got two black cats named Jasmine and Jessica. We love them so very much. I had had some though times but I all ways find a way to fix it. Next summer we will try to put our house up for sale. We found a large area to start to build a house and start to put in a garden. We are very excited to move. I have an older brother who is also at Lipscomb. Me and my brother Luke get along much better now that we are older. This is me.

  54. One scary thing that has happend to my family is..... Our garage is not a very clean,but not very dirty either. One normal Monday morning I went to open the garage door and there was a spider! It was just sitting there in its web. I screamed and my parents came running to see what was wrong. I showed them the spider I almost walked into.My dad took his hand and killed it.I made my mom go first. As soon as my mom took one step she screamed! She started running down the steps and got in the car. I took a step then backed back up into the house. Up in the corner there were about eight spiders crawling around. They weren't very small either!I took my backback and went out the front door.The next day my dad killed all the spiders.Now we can use the door to the garage!

  64. Our neighborhood snow day this past winter was so much fun. Everyone's power went out so they came to our house to hang out and eat breakfast. Our power stays on when there are storms because we have a generator. After we had breakfast, everyone bundled up and put on their snow clothes and headed down the street to the Mitchell's house. They have the biggest hill in the street in front of them and in their yard so we like sledding there. After several hours of sledding we came in for hot chocolate and snacks and to dry off our wet clothes and warm up. For the second round of sledding we went in the other direction to our neighbors the Pattersons. Their front yard is crazy steep. We would start in their back yard and go down the driveway across the front yard and then onto the street until the sled stopped. There were no cars because of the snow and ice so we didn't have to worry about traffic. I actually got on my sled on the road and slid down to the end of the street. This was the most fun snow day because all of the grownups and kids hung out together. The grown ups couldn't go to work and the kids couldn't go to school. The weather forced us all to play together all day.
