Red Cross

Red Cross Visit 

On Wednesday, Sandy Hartley, from the Red Cross, came to GES to speak with 4th and 5th grade. She told us and showed us on a map, where certain dangers in the United States are, such as flood zones, and areas that get hurricanes or earthquakes. She told us about different safety situations and we discussed what to do when faced with certain hazards. We talked about family escape plans and things we should discuss with our families. She gave us a quiz at the end to see what we had learned. Her program was called the “Pillowcase Project” because college students during Hurricane Katrina left their dorms with just a few items stashed in their pillow cases. She gave us each a workbook and a pillowcase to decorate. We can then use the pillow case to store items we may need in an emergency situation.

He pulled out the bad dream and got is trumpet out then he was like take this then he blowed it into the giant's face. The giants are scared of Jack and the beanstalk because he brings weapons.

Outdoor Classroom

Things we do in the Outdoor Classroom.

We have been making banners in art so we can hang them up in the Outdoor Classroom because of our floor that we made and we have wrapped them all around and it looks very pretty now. Our fort is made out of sticks and in the inside it has rocks for seats. Last year we build a fort it is bigger and wider It was very cool. When it rained it kept us dry. We were in third grade when we built this fort. There is a pond we go and catch animals It  Is fun to do With my class. We also get choice time. One day in math  at Outdoor Classroom we had  paper and pencil to write our answers down We also had a clipboard to put all walks on four hour array.

Fall Fiesta

On friday, we had a special day called Fall Fiesta. It's where you play games with a group. You get assigned to and go to a different variety of games. One of them is called : Peek-A-Who? It is where you get behind a blanket and some one else will be on the other side and you try to say the other person's name first. If you win the loser goes to your team. Stage 2. You sit back to back while your teammates give you hints of who it is. Stage 3. Use only hand symbols. Fall Fiesta is a nice little day to run around. There is another place called: tag games.You play straight up tag games that everyone loves. One is dead ant tag. It is normal tag but when you get tagged, you lie on the ground with all your limbs facing up. When a free person comes around, 2+ people must pick up all the limbs and lift you up. Then, they take 3 steps and put them down. After that, the dead ant is free again. Another is peanut butter pit. There is a rope and you jump on and swing across. If you hit the mat, you go to the end of the line. Stage 2: You have to grab a ball on the way across. There is a game I do not know the name to, there is a person with a pool noodle in the center of a circle. People sit down and lie there toes out. The person in the middle tries to hit people's toes. The person has to say another person's name before the noodle hits there toes. If they successfully say the name, the noodle has to go to the person who has had there name said. If you are out, you are the person in the middle. If you say your own name, OUT.
