Today we had another session in the Workshop preparing our Flower Show art. We began by sketching daffodils making sure we looked very carefully at the flowers. We then used different shades of green and yellow. Finally we used blue and purple dye. Come to the Flower Show to see them. They look great.

It was cold and wet this morning so we were pleased to give the birds a new late winter treat to nibble at. By mid morning all the wax eyes in Outram seemed to be flocking to our bird table. Creep up very quietly and do a bird count. Who can count the most birds at one time?

Joel brought his mouse, Cadbury Chocolate Button, to visit Room 9 this morning. Joel gave a very interesting talk and we asked him heaps of questions. Buttons loved crawling up Joel's sleeve? Why do you think that was so?
Yesterday Mr Carroll sent a comment to Ben wondering if he was related to Bill Peet. Well today Ben arrived with five stories that he had written for the class. He read one to the class and then enjoyed watching his stories being read. Ben you are brilliant!

When you are six, seven and eight, teeth get wriggly and fall out. Sean was very excited this morning when he showed us his brand new gap. Ethan and George are very happy that their gaps are disappearing and their new teeth are appearing.

We have begun learning about persuasive writing. We have written about whether we should own dogs or not. Today we wrote about whether we should go to bed when we are told or not! Room 9 was very quiet with two groups working independently. The other group was having a teacher session on different sentence starters. Looks good Ethan.
I think "The Gnats of Knotty Pine" is cool because they have a meeting where they all gather up and they all share their ideas and vote who's idea is the best. They want to be safe from the hunters. You will be surprised who helps them.

We are reading Bill Peat stories in Room 9. Listen to Tyla telling us about the Kweeks of Kokatumdee. We have just had a comment from Carol at Springston School saying she loves Bill Peat stories too and she hasn't read this one. She is wondering what Bill Peat is trying to teach us with this story. Can you help Carol children?

On Friday we looked at all the dioramas that the Extra for Experts had made. It was good to have a close look and to ask some wondering questions. Mason had a big crowd wanting to look at his diorama and use his torch. Do you still have a question to ask Mason? Well done everyone.
