Goosebumps – How I Met My Monster by R.L.Stine

Noah Bienstock is a fifth grade girl and she has having to have these weird nightmares about monsters following her and trying to kill her, her mom says that its because she’s nervous about the swim trials but maybe its not…

A connection that I have is, when I go swimming in the deep end of the pool I always think about what could be down there

A new book I’m reading is called Treasure Fever! by Andy Griffiths

So what I’ve been reading is that there is a school called Northwest Southeast Central School and in this school there is a class called 5c, then there is this group of friends in this class but the point of view in this book is from Henry, one boy from this group of friends. So, Henry was sent to the principals office because it had looked like he had jumped onto Fred Durkins (The school bully), Fred Durkinds and his little brother Clive who is in Henrys class stole a lollipop from Henry, Ok lets get back to the part when Henry was going to Principle GreenBeard’s office. Mr. GreenBeard was a very fascinating man with the dream of making his school a pirate ship (it came true). After a few moments of Henry listening his principle talk about respect and honor he was talking about a lost treasure… And it was Henry’s job to find it in his very school grounds.

Henry is a very attention paying boy, he is happy to do anything and is very quick thinking. I think that he likes Jenny a girl in their group of friends but I don’t know yet.

A connection I have is that when I was small I loved ships and water so when i was 5 I got a big lego pirates play set.

Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar

A lot has changed between the last reading journal entry and this one.

First of all Tamaya knows what her rash is from and its the “fuzzy mud”. The fuzzy muds spread all over HeathCliff and is now affecting other people too!

But lets get back to the very start of this spreading, Chad gets hit in the face with the mud by Tamaya, no one sees chad for days. Tamaya feels like its her fault that Chad is lost so she runs into the woods to find him. Now we are at the part where she finds Chad but his face is totally swollen and he’s blind. Who knows, will they get back or will they stay in the woods forever seeking help?

Chad is a seventh grader in Woodridge Academy that has been kicked out of school 6 times and thats why he came to Woodridge, not because his family had money and not because he’s smart. Now we know that Chad picks on Marshall because they have the same birthday and Chad heard Marshall talking about how he got his favorite food for his birthday and Chad gets nothing

Baking Fractions Reflection

Today we went to the school kitchen and baked/made muffins and smoothies.

We had to figure out how much sugar or flour we had to put in the table/teaspoons and cups instead of using milliliters and grams. Some groups got to dip their muffins in cinnamon and sugar.

My favorite thing was drinking the smoothies because I like smoothies a lot.

Somethings that I would change is putting fruit into the muffins because then its not as sweet.

I would like to do this again because its fun to do and you get to eat!
