For the last two weeks in Project Jubilee we have discussed quite a bit of things. These things include, the brain, Henri Matisse, and Math Center. The brain is a very interesting subject. I am looking forward to learning all the scientific terms and locations of different parts of the brain. Did you know that the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body and that the left side controls the right side? Moving on to Henri Matisse. Henri Matisse is one of the many great artists. He is extremely famous for “painting with scissors”. Painting with scissors means cutting pieces of construction paper and pasting it to another sheet of paper to create a picture. Matisse painted with scissors because when he was in his twenty’s he became sick and unable to paint anymore. Math Center is a variety of activities in which you play during Math Center period. Math Center includes, tangrams, pentominos, pattern blocks, and geoboards. These are some brain busting activities that take skill to complete. These are only a few of the many subjects we will be discussing this school year. Oh! I almost forgot to tell who my teacher was. My teacher is Mrs.Heald.
Do you have a favorite place or subject in school? Oh boy I do!!! My favorite place in school is Project Jubilee!! Mostly because of the fun, artistic, and challenging things we do. In Project Jubilee we learn about challenging things such as Math center or think 1 ,but we are on think 3 its not the easiest thing to do it is very challenging . For the artistic things we do we are painting these art scenes of the beach and the sunset with water color paint. A fun thing we do is we play chess and we do Temari. We also do kumihimo. I love all of the things we do in Project Jubilee. I also love my wonderful teacher Mrs. Heald. She is always saying “she will bend over backwards for us” But we have to ask for help to get the help that she is offering. She is always offering her help, and I really appreciate that!!!!! Those are just some of the awesome things we do in my favorite place in school!!!
Every week on Wednesday and Thursday I come to the most fun place in the world! In Project Jubilee we are learning about Australia and also about Medieval Times. We have been working on our Medieval Livebinder for the past three weeks it’s actually very fun! I have two topics for the Medieval Livebinder my first one is Geoffrey Chaucer my second one is the Bayeux Tapestry. We haven’t exactly started on our Australian Livebinder yet, but my topic for that is Art. I haven’t exactly figured out what I’m going to do for my topic, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to do an artist from Australia, or someone who does art in Australia. We are also learning about think one math where we learn about different things to do with math. Here are some examples of what kinds of things we learn are area, perimeter, and just plain old strategy. I love Project Jubilee I love that I get to come every week! Now let’s talk about my teacher Mrs. Heald. Mrs. Heald is awesome and she helps us when we need it as she says “I will bend over backwards for yall, but you have to put forth effort.” She makes things easy for us to understand. Now back to the Australian topic that I was talking about earlier we are talking about in class like we are talking about the aborigines and their art so we are talking about their culture and also about their history, and that is just a liitle of what we do in Project Jubille it is very fun!!!!
Here in Project Jubilee, we are learning new ways of art. We are learning about Zentangle, It is sort of like doodling. Another type of art, Tamari Balls we have not gotten to the final stage yet but we have covered them in yarn and thread, we might get to sew on the pattern this week. We are starting to learn more about Australia, we are going to go on a new website Mrs. Heal has found, it’s called Live Binders. Each student is assigned a topic then, there is a tab with your topic on it. Then, there is a sub tab with the student’s name on them. Finally, you add your information about your topic.
Last week in Project Jubilee was my fourth class. We learned about a crime dealing with Mrs. Moneybags. We found out that her nephew was the one who changed the will. We also learned about Shakespeare. We read a book about him and one of his plays. Then Mrs. Heald took out her iPad and read off to us some insults, like one was Maggot Pie which made the whole class start laughing. Then for the rest of the day we took out the games and started playing, and that’s what we did for the rest of the day.
On Monday 2-13-2012 I learnded how to make a temari ball it was fun to make it. A temari ball is from Japan. Temari balls come in many colors and sizes. If you go to google and type temari balls in images you know what they look like.
Hi, I am Austin and last wednesday I learned about the chess master, Magnus Carlsen. He is a 21 year old Norwegian. Magnus started to play chess when his older sister started to play and he wanted to try to beat her, and he did.When Magnus was 13 his sister and himslef took a year off of school so Magnus could play a match with Garry Kasparov in Iceland. Garry kept Magnus waiting for 30 minutes then he showed up. At one point Magnus was waiting for Garry’s move and he got up to watch the other games because he started to get bored.The match ended up being a draw and Garry said nothing to Magnus and just left, but of course Magnus thougt he had won. After that match people started lined up in malls to play Magnus in chess and he won all games. When Magnus was 19 he was considered the chess master. Not long ago he played 10 different players without looking at any of the boards, and still won all games.
Hi I’m going to be telling you some new things I would like to learn in PJ, I would like to learn how computers work and how they know what they’re supposed to do, click, what to type, and where to go to online. The reason I would like to know how a computer does all things it does is ,because my dad works in technology.
I’m having a good time at PJ our most recent projects involves Live Binders a new site on the internet that allows you to go on there and post information about any subject. Mrs. Heald assigned us two projects on Live Binders. One project involves posting a subject about medieval times; the other involves posting information about the Australian subject you choose. When we are not on Live Binders we are usually doing a Zen tangle a new thing that Mrs. Heald taught us it involves drawing cool designs, and no! It is not doodling. And that is what we are doing in PJ this is Dylan sighing out
