The lions defensive Line named Ndamukong Suh got suspended for two games because he was stomping on another player's head. The player swung him by his helmet and the owner of the NFL suspended him for stomping on the other player's face, but I think that the other player should be suspended too because he should not have done that. My dad and mom told me to always defend myself. So that's good that he defended himself. I give him credit for that.But he should have not done that because he is getting charged 42,500 dollars for doing that. I feel bad for him. He fights a lot at games, so I'm not surprised that he did that. Even though I'm a huge Lions fan, because my dad coaches for the Lion's I hope that number 62 on the packers feels better.But he will be back soon to play. Titus Young smashed someone in the face from the other team right in the referees face. Most people said hasn't he learned from Ndamukong Suh not to hit people or stomp on the other player's faces so he is going to get punished for that.I hope no one else will do what they did.

MATH IS FUN

by Alex
In math we are learning about decimals and metric measurement. We are also learning about pre-algebra (x-6=4 x=10) and it is a little bit hard, but it is still fun. Now I am going to ask you a question. If 1 inch on a map represents 300 miles then 6 inches equals___ the answer is 1,800. We are also learning to multiply using the partial products method. Here is a question 574x5----- and remember math is always fun to do

Science News

In Science we are learning about pendulums. To conduct our experiments we used 38 centimeter long strings, pennies, paperclips and pencils. After making a loop on one end of the string, I tied the paperclip to the other end of the string and attached a penny to the paperclip. I slipped the loop in the pencil, placed the pencil on the desktop. Then my partner pulled the penny back at a 90 degree angle, level with the desk. When we released the string, the penny swung back and forth like a pendulum. I predicted that the penny would make 10 swings in 15 seconds. The class conducted the experiment and placed their results in a data table. We calculated the landmarks. My group’s results were 12 swings in 15 seconds. The class average was 13 swings in 15 seconds. Next we experimented by changing one variable at a time. We learned that when we shortened the string to 13 cm the amount of swings increased to about 23 swings in 15 seconds. When we increased the weight with two pennies, the amount of swings did not change.

Hi I’m Jo-Jo and I think that our school should have a Justin Bieber ticket auction. By putting names in a box pick five people from the box to win five tickets. Then bring Justin Bieber to our school so we can perform with him on stage singing and dancing with him. Then Justin Bieber will invite us to one of he’s concert’s and then we have a party and Justin Bieber gives us 100,000 dollars for our school.

Zendaya Coleman plays on shake it up. She plays Rocky. She gets really good grades on the show unlike her best friend Cece. Rocky's full name is Rockell Blue. She has one brother Named Ty Blue. Rocky's really nice. she's nice to every one she meets, but her number one person in her life is Cece. On the show, they dance on Shake it up Chicago.I like Rocky because she's smart just like me!! And when the going gets tuff, you can count on her, that's a fact of life. Cece, on the other hand, you cant count on her for anything. No offence Cece, but you get bad grades and you are selfish. You're not a bad person, but you should try to be more like rocky.
Thats all for this time!

Weather

by Morghan

I’m going to tell you about the weather this last November. I got the info from Weather.com (http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/USMI0794?month=-1).
Here are some subjects:
Highest Temp: 68
Lowest Temp: 27
How Many Suns?: There was only one sun!

What Weather on Your Break:What Happened Last Month?:
6 Cloudy 1 Partly cloudy
1 ? 1 Foggy
9 Mostly Sunny 6 Rainy
4 windy 1 Snowy
This last month was pretty crazy. I learned from my book (How the Weather Works), there is such thing as weather symbols. I also learned that there is such thing as a Stevenson Screen. A Stevenson Screen is a little box on stilts. You store things inside that help you forecast weather like a meteorologist.



Book Review

DSCF0179.jpg

by Laila
After reading this book, I wonder if her parents and teachers and principal are worried because she’s missed like a month or two of school. All her homework isn’t finished. She has tests to do and finish. And her parents are worried about her. I bet they would do anything in the world for her to come back home. Her friends were and families are so mad and they love and miss her so much. That’s the bad part. And the good part is that she’s probably safe and sound in no harm or danger. But then her parents said, “What are you doing here Akiko? You had us sick to our stomach!” you’re coming home right lady." Akiko was so embarrassed by her parents treating her this way. They will never except Akiko for who she is. “ Oh brother! back to the Training Master.
