1st Grade East

Hi, I am in Mr. Shin and Ms. Faruqi’s 1st-grade class. Last week, we went to the Menlo Park Library and we shared about our famous person. For example, my character was Thomas Jefferson. Did you know he was the third president of the United States? He also wrote the Declaration of Independence on July 4th. Have a Thomas Friday!


1st Grade West

Good morning. We are in Ms. Doolin and Mr. Cruz’s 1st-grade class. This week in Art, we made artist trading cards. I made a card with equations on the back and an elephant on the front. I also did equations on my card. An example of an equation we used was 3 to the power of 3 which equals 27. Have an art-filled Friday!


3rd Grade East

Good morning, I am in Ms. Robinson and Ms. Kilsby’s 3rd-grade class. This week in Writing,  we are working on fictional creative stories. To start, we chose pictures and built storylines from them. Mine is about two ships battling. My favorite part about creative writing is being
able to write about something that will never happen to you...and maybe you don’t want to happen to you. Have a creative Friday!


3rd Grade West

Konnichiwa. I am in Mrs. McCarthy and Ms. Kilsby’s 3rd-grade class. This week in Math, we’ve been talking about bridges. Building a bridge takes a lot of commitment and you need to gather a lot of supplies like cables and beams. For 3rd grade, we have a challenge to make bridges out of every-day materials we’ve collected. I like how we have to put our minds together and work with teammates to accomplish this task. Have a collapsing Friday!


4th Grade East

Hi, I am in Ms. Diaz and Ms. Saeed’s 4th-grade class. This school year is coming to a close.  We chose 3 projects that we liked this school year. I chose 1,000 paper cranes, the Gold Rush, and our trip to Angel Island.  We sent our paper cranes to the Parkland school in Florida. Have a final Friday!


4th Grade West (1)

Hi, I am in Ms. Mauricio and Ms. Saeed’s 4th-grade class. This past week we’ve been making 3D prints that relate to our Coloma Gold Rush character. Using Tinkercad, I designed a hat for my character. It was hard to move the shapes and learn the program. Have a designing Friday!


4th Grade West (2)

Hi, I’m in Ms. Mauricio and Ms. Saeed’s 4th-grade class. This week in Buddy Time, we showed our buddies what Gather was like. We modeled everything step by step. First we sang Peace Peace, then we did the mindfulness, and then presenters, two for each core value, said something that they did with their buddy about that core value. We finished with the Irish Blessing. Have a buddy filled Friday!
