This week in Mr.Leone’s class we are doing a writing assignment called “obfuscation station”. That’s when we rewrite a morning meeting song and make the words more complicated. For example, the word “Car”, we would rewrite and make it “automobile”. The song I’m doing is “Down on the Corner”, and we rewrote words like, nickel and corner into, Silver and Boulevard.
We are also currently reading, House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer, for our class read aloud. It’s about a boy named Matt who is only 6 and was born from a cow because a man named, El Patron, cloned himself by puting a piece of his skin in a cow and thats how Matt was born. I think it’s a really good read aloude because it’s kind of an action type book, but it also makes you want to keep listening to it after he stops reading.
For the past week the class has been learning about the skeletal system. All the bones in the human body and what they’re called. There are 206 bones in the human body. Some bones have some weird names like the” Phalanxes “. THey are your fingers and toes. Also the ” Femur ” is your hip. For the next few weeks in Mr. Leone’s the whole class will be learning about the human body.
