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!!!!
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.
Project Jubilee has been really fun lately. We have done Shakespear, optical illusions, and weaving!!! We are going on a field trip to see Shakespear’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Trojan Hall next week. Today, we finished up our coat of arms, worked on some optical illusions, and talked about Shakespear. We hope Mrs.Heald will allow us to start up class dojo again. For those who don’t remeber class dojo, it is everyone has a little avatar that looks like a monster. From then on Mrs.Heald can give our little monsters points for good behavior or, she could deduct points for negative behavior. Also, we are doing little projects with a different topic for each person. My topic is Leis Ericson and the war of the roses. We are allowed to show our facts with a video or a audio podcast. I think I will get a LiveBinder to store my information. We could also get a Prezi but, I prefer a LiveBinder. That’s all I have to say today!! Bye!!!!
Hi, I’m Kara and in Project Jubilee last week we worked on our coat of arms. We only have a few more people that are finishing. We also did chess with notations. We learned how many points each piece meant except the king, which is priceless. We have received all the information for the BIG Project Jubilee field trip to Atlanta, Georgia. My friends and I are so excite for this field trip. We also need old t-shirts donated for an art project we are doing with the loom to make a rug for the classroom. Project Jubilee is fun.
Last time at project jubilee we played chess worked on Coat of Arms and got homework about medieval times . It was fun because I made progress on my Coat of Arms, it has a kangaroo, a snake, two swords, and a leopard. I think it looks really cool. In chess I haven’t lost all of my pieces in chess yet. I played against one of the best chess players that I’ve ever played. For my homework I did Attila the Hun and Jousting tournaments. That wasn’t the funnest thing ever because i waited until the last minute to do it. That was wrong . So don’t do what I did. Talk to you next time I blog
Hi I’m Jordan and so far Project Jubilee rocks! We have do Ada Lovelace, a female mathematician. Dale Chihuly a glass artist. Optical illusions which eveyone is familiar with! My personal favorite so far is our plastic bottle fish. That was when we painted our fish on the inside of the bottles. That way it looked glossy and when we set it down to dry it wouldn’t ruin the tables. Also, just to shake things up a bit Mrs.Heald has started a thing called class dojo where everyones picture is a little monster and Mrs.Heald can either give point to us or deduct points depending on our behavior. And, just a shout out, Mrs.Heald, you are awesome!!!Go PJ!!!
Project Jubilee has been way awesome! I am in the Wednsday and Thursday classes. We are learning about jazz and all the students got assigned a jazz musician, mine was Cab Calloway. The class is going to make a slideshow with our information of the jazz musician. We also have been learning alot about art,Like the principles and elements.we have been getting alot into Dale Chihuly the glass artist.He does crazy things with glass. He makse it swirly and spikey. All his art work stands out from the rest sometimes literally. Our class all started on these fish made out of 2 liter bottles.We haven’t gotten very far though. One of the other things we are doing is optical illusions. Some things we have done is a wavy hand made out of a million lines.It gives the impression that a hand is in all those lines. Another thing we did in optical illusions was floating bars. It is long widening bars coming from a certain view point on a paper. The bars are coloured too. There is also a field trip coming up to the Dolphin Island Sea Lab. I am really excited!
Hey yall it’s Paige. I’m so glad we’re back in P.J! I’m in Wednesday and Thursday group (with a bunch of weirdoes mostly the boys)! So anyways the first time we came to P.J we did a little ART with Mrs. Nancy. We painted crabs for the hurricane in Tuscaloosa. We saw this video about it, it was so sad. We painted on tar paper. We drew with chalk then painted. Mrs. Nancy then took them to a car place so peoples could bid on them. At the end we raised a lot of money.
