The Magic World of Two Minute Talks

The two minute talks are a time during the day that one person talk about something in two minutes.  For example, One day I played a joke and each of us had to share a story about a joke we played. When we do two minute talks everyone has a job the presenter and the audience. The audience must always pay attention, stay focused, with empty hands and be silent. After each two minute talk we have questions and comments.

The two minute talk has lots topics, for example? one time I played a joke, 10 things you should know about me, and guess my book.

We started our two minute talks early in the year.

We love two minute talk because it is a good time to get to talk about interesting things.

Wind Science Experiments

In science we did really fun experiments this week. We did these experiments to learn better about the wind. We did one that we used a bottle, the second one we used a wind measure and the third we used a pin wheel.

:

In the bottle experiement we put cold water with green food colouring and hot colourless water divided by cardboard. We removed the cardboard slowly and let the water mix. We learnt that what hot air is mixed with cold air it makes wind.

Wind Measurement and Pinwheel:

We used the pinwheel so we cold have some fun with wind. We learnt that sometimes we need to turn to find the wind.

The wind measurement tool we used to find the force of the wind.

Story Elements

Friday we read a book, called The Quilt Maker’s Gift. We also talked about the book and we wrote in our ELA notebooks. We wrote about the characters, beginning, plot, setting, middle and end. Some of the characters are the king, soldiers and the quilt maker.

We did a big activity to make a quilt. We wrote things about setting, beginning, middle end, solution and problem.

The problem of the story was the king was unhappy and wanted a quilt. The quilt maker said he had to give away all of his presents to get one.
