Week 24 in Mr. Houck’s class, by Angel Hicks

Every week one student in our class gets to sit out the super quiz and write the weekly update on our class.  This week’s update was done by 7th grader Angel Hicks.  Thanks, Angel!

This week in Mr. Houck’s class we got to write Found Poems, using the materials that we wanted to use. We worked on Marblandia, doing commercials, radio ads, and basic construction.

We also shared speeches! Even though everybody was nervous, it was amazing finding the differences between these speeches and the ones from the beginning of the year! Everyone was more confident, spoke louder, and stood a bit taller. There were a lot of interesting things to be learned, like Chinese culture, famous people in China, and more.

The seventh and eighth graders played a game to see who knew Mr. Houck’s class better. Seventh grade had Devon and Tristen, eighth had Isaac and Kadyn, and seventh grade won. Then the class got to test Mr. Houck, and he knew almost all the answers!

We took a super quiz, and made silly Chinese dragon faces to turn them in (even thought some of them looked like fish).

On Friday Mr. Long was not at school, so we listened to a new song at morning meeting…it was an interesting song, but I don’t think we should listen to it again. We also got four new books from Scholastic!
