       School, school, school. It is not the #1 place to be at on a hot day like today. Sence we have the nicest teacher in the world (Mr. Pollitt) he got us ice pops to cool us down. But as soon as we finished them we just went back to being hot. Our hw tonight is to think of what we should do to school on a hot day. One option we have is to cancle school which I dont really like, because you have to make up for those days in summer. A other option would be to have a half day which is all right but I still dont really like that idea because it would be kind of point less in my opinion. We can also get air conditioning, which I like but it might be kind of expensive. The idea that I think is the best is if we only have holidays and weekends off and end school in May. We really dont need more than 2 days off from school. I mean really. So if you have a other option for school please comment me. Thhank You! 









      Wow the opera is a lot better than I expected. I thought it would be a sing along. But know it was a play. A play that enough rolles for the whole fifth grade. That is pretty impressive. I did not like the way that some of the main characters were so quiet. The mother really woke me up. I sore this play already so I sorta new what was going to happen next. The only 2 differences there were was the play I saw was in German. And Stewart put on a play in English. Plus there was obviosley a age difference. Over all I rate there play/opera a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Good Job Stewart!






    I think that Obama should be president and B. the mayor should be vise president. I hope this happens that would be good. I also think that McCane should be president and B. the mayor should be vise president. That also would be good. I hope the presidential canidate is someone good. And some one who is responsible. That would be PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!






      I think that Clinton should drop out of the race. I say that because, I dont reaaly want or think she should win. Its just my opinion! I also think that I want to see Obama and McCane race. It would be cool. This politic stuff is really interesting this year. cant wait to see who will win!





       Hi there wiki people! We are happy that you are visiting our wiki. Tonight for homework we have to read a article about new york news. I found my article on www.cnn.com.

               A good name for a horse would be Bubble. Bubble would be a good name because, a bubble you make and then after a few seconds/minuets it will pop. But if you name a horse Bubble people will think of the horse as a srong, fast moving, aware of all objects, smart and intelligant horse. It can have the nick name "The Life Saver" because it is like a world record for the longest living horse.








        Spring Fever

I used to not know what spring fever is. But then I realized that it is when you love spring so much, that you cant pay attention to anything else.Spring fever is something that I belive in. It is something that I get every year. The only bad thing about spring fever is, when it gone you are sad!!






      Current Event Article (POLITICS)- http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/04/28/mccain/index.html?iref=mpstoryview  This article was well written. It had a good point of view. And most importantly, has a purpose to be written. I think people can learn a lot from this article. And lastly I think this article was a good one for me to read, because of how he wrote it ( FORMAT ), and now I know a little more about politics.

       The Westing Game Is Finished

     Hi everyone! Today I read a article on Obama. It was a interesting article on a little argument beetween Obama & Clinton. I thought it was a good article because it gave a lot of facts about both Barack and Hillary. I think the article would be even better if they wrote good things about Obama and Clinton. You should read this article!  






     Helllo! Today in class everyone is making a schedule to help remember what we have so we wont be late for it. I am lucky because I dont play or do anything other than any one else. I just go where ever the class goes. So my schedule is basikley easy to keep track of. I think this is going to be easy.

     Math Problem including fractions- Jen and Jess went apple picking on November 15th. They picked out 5 buckets of apples. Each bucket could hold 10 apples. Jess took 3 over 5 of the baskets home. How many apples does Jen take home?







      Are you ready for my idea! It is on our home work! But don't go away yet! It is on a activity for the book we read. I thought of a idea that will blow your mind away. So let me tell you what my idea is, Mr. Pollitt gives a box of grey dots, and a box of gold stars, and we go around the class room for about a week judging people to see what we think of them, just like the book!








    Hello! Im sorry if I dont write a lot, my hands are tired from  making corrections on all of my entries! Wow I made a lot of silly mistakes! I can't beleive how many mistakes made in just a few months of school. I hope that next time I write a entery I don't make any mistakes! I just thought of a really good idea on what to write about! I"ll write about the new backround on the wiki! Oh I'm so excited to write I'm getting goose bumps! ( not really) Well the backround for the wiki is o.k. But I am going to like the pink backround better! I'm realy happy that we are having the pink backround in February though, because that when my birthday is!

           Today I have to do current events. Usaully I would say no! I hate current event homework when we have to do a piticular subject. The thing is, today we could do what ever WE want! Im so excited! So obviousley I picked an article on track and field. My article is called- FARWELL TO A CHAMP WITH STYLE. The article was a good article because it was to my interest. I feel jealouse. She said she was the best runner in the world. My question for the article is is she the fastest runner out of men too or just woman? And when did she get her first medal? I'll see my class mates tommorow. So long peoples!!!!!!!! http://www.timeforkids.com/TFK/teachers/wr/article/0,27972,88467,00.html










         Here is my spelling poem I hope you like it.

                  She hasn't a chance with the play said Charlotte to her BFF. Her BFF's name was Gabby. And the person they were talking about was Lala. Lala wouldn't even have a chance to be fiends with cool people like us even if the  branches of government was still around. She is like a boy, because she is the catcher on a BOYS baseball team. Lala heard them talking about her and said " I'm gonna hatch one on you" thats baseball talk for getting revenge. The next day Lala came to school with an abercrombie jacket. Everyone was impresed. The next day Lala came to school wearing a angle throne and a different abercrombie jacket. Everyone was impessed even more.  The next day Charlotte and Gabby were playing tennis, then Lala came over and made a joke that was extremley funny, she said " can you keep down the racket?" Every one laughed.  Lala did good acts in front of the school everyday.  And now every thing Lala wears matches. Lala even quit baseball and joined soccer. In fact she talks better too! I think that Lala was very thantful for her new changes. She made lots of friends and for once in her life she was popular. And one day I remember her saying something I will never forget her saying "my name is Lola".









  http://www.timeforkids.com/TFK/teachers/wr/article/0,27972,1585910,00.html- what a sad story I just read about a super competitive and tough horse named Barbaro. He had his victory about 2 months ago when he won the Kuntucky Derby. But right at the start line at Preakness Stakes race he hurt his leg and got surgery. But that was not enough and Barbaro was killed. I wish Barbaro was still alive. See you guys tommorow!

        For my word I did teacher and turned it in to Jinkle. The word Jinkle is a good word to use because it is easy to pronounce and spell. It is a word used when your at school. Here is an example of my word, example: Mr. Pollitt is my fifth grade Jinkle. I think the word Jinkle is much better than the word teacher. I realy hope we can start using the word Jinkle. See you tommorow.

Here is my spelling story.

Once upon a time there was a very small house, with a very small kitchen, and a very rich prince. They had fifteen, quickly working, swimming, wicked, risk taking, ditch digging slobs. There most prized, prize was a golden pitcher. That one day split open, and that family was as poor as can be. The end.







O.K. here is the part when I fill in the hole, because im going to tell you what happened too the warden. So the lizards crawled up on the warden and were about to bite her in the leg. But the warden has secretley been hiding a minie fridge in her private room. Meaning while she told mr Sir and mr pendansky that they ran out of onions they really had more onions. But she lied. Sence the lizards did not bight the warden they thought she was eating onions. So mr pendansky and mr sir went in to the wardens private office and ate all her onions. The 2 men ate so many onions that it was hard to smell the wardens onion blood so bitt right in to the warden. 2 seconds no later the warden dropped to the floor. Well said mr pendansky, its time to dig one last hole.

So that was my reaction to the story we read.







I read a short article on beached bannanas. It was short and wierd. Why was someone taking there time to write an article about bannanas? I mean seriousley! Well I have to go now so let me make this simple for you.

Hi everyone! I’m going to tell you my opinion on having a pod cast. I never did a pod cast before. They are new to me. Mr. Pollitt said that pod casts are fun. He also said that we will be doing a lot of pod cast. To me that meant a lot of fun, because pod cast + a lot = a lot of fun. There is my opinion on the pod cast. I hope we have a fun time using it! 









Hey! I just read a cool article about monkeys. The article is called Missing Monkeys. It was about a Red Colobus Monkey that is extinct.

Hey everyone! I’m going to write a spooky story. But first I’m going to write 5 things that I think are spooky story needs. Here’s my list. 1 skeleton 2 candy 3 ghost 4 bats 5 pumpkins 6 spiders 7 black cats 8 withes well as you can see I came up with a little more than 5 spooky things.   Well on with some ideas. Firstly I think that we should make some names up. But they are going to be spooky names for skeletons. Here are three spooky names Stella Skidoo and Scullion. Next the three skeletons will go trick or treating to a spooky mansion. This turns out to be haunted. They will ring the door bell and say trick or treat. A big scary witch will exit the door and say hey smell my smelly feet. You aren’t getting any Halloween sweats from me. Ha Ha Ha! I will take all you sweat Halloween treats and give them to my grand son. He will take them and eat them all. So if you want your treats back said the witch here’s my grandson’s address I hope you get scared out of your pants. Ha! She said chokingly. The three skeletons wondered what she meant. Well they were a little spooked out but they wanted there candy back so left to go to the witches grandsons house. Finish Later.











Today I am going to right about foot steps. And I have one scary story for you. Because over the weekend I went hiking with my cousins, and we were walking through the woods when all of a sudden we heard a noise in the woods. So I standed on a rock to see if anything was there, but did not see anything, so I kept walking and heard breathing and a tiny roar. My aunt looked to the side of her and saw black. From that point on all of us new it was a black bear. So we started speed walking to get away.  T.T.Y.L. Jen







I am so tired from a hard day of school. I have finished my home work already. My freind just left. We were playing in the hose sence it is so hot out. Well I am just about to read for 15 minuets. And I have to feed my fish write now. Good by for now.




I just got back from school. And I have track practice tonight with Laurel. We have the best coach in the world! His name is Mr. Schuler. He treats us very nicely. The group is mixed with girls and boys. We have a pretty good team. Everyone is is nice to each other.  And nobody is rude to any one. And I mean that in a good way. Ill see you in class tomorrow. Good by for now!








Hi everyone! I’m going to write about what I think of the wiki. So far I think it is the best. I think this website is so cool! I love it! I can type forever with out my hand hurting. I hate writing with a pen and pencil. But I love typing on the computer! How much better can it get? The only thing that I don’t like doing on the computer is homework. Because it takes forever for my lap top to down load and get warmed up. And I like to get my homework done write away. Other wise I give the computer 2 thumbs up. I wish that we could just get  homework over with in school were all the other work gets done. Well that’s all I got for today! Good by for now!
