We are excited to take part in QuadBlogging for January 2013.
Here is a video explaining what we will be doing…
Here are the three other schools we will be visiting through blogging. They will be visiting us through our blog. We will have at least two weeks to focus on each blog.
Week 1. January 7th- 18th St Patrick’s Primary School – Sheffield, England
Week 2. January 21st – February 1st – PDS…
Here are our challenges:
1.Here is our challenge for this week: Remember, anyone can participate…
Write a Haiku poem that’s also a riddle…For example, Who am I? Where am I? What am I?
Here is our class example -
Where are we?
We live in the north
The Atlantic divides us
Eagles fly above
Remember that a Haiku must have five syllables in lines 1 and 3 and seven syllables in line 2
We hope many of you will participate, comment and leave a link to your Haiku.
Our Haikus – Can you guess what, where, who they are?
2.Here is our second week challenge…we had another snow day today so we are behind with our blogging.

All picture challenge writing is due by Wednesday or before. Please write on your name Google doc and revise and edit before Wednesday’s class. We will do peer edits and teacher edits before posting on our blog and linking to St. Leonard’s blog.
This week of January 23rd is Hyrstmount’s week to receive comments. Miss Wallis has set us all a challenge of writing a 100 word story. Here is the challenge and the story starter…
Try and make your story as creative and interesting as possible. Have a look at the rules below.
You will post your story under your name, 6th grade writers and 100 word challenge. Then go to Hyrstmount School 100 word challenge page and post a link to your story (your blog page).
Here are the rules to help you get started:
1. Write about the given subject in exactly 100 words.
2. Punctuation is not included in your work count.
3. ‘I’ as in ‘I was running as fast I could’ is a word and counts towards your 100.
4. Your work should make sense.
5. No repetition (example: a really, really, really, big dog).
Give yourself thinking time to plan your work.
Try to work out roughly how many lines you need to write to get close to 100 words (do this by counting the number of lines you write on one line then multiplying it to get to 100).
Once you get close to 100, try adding extra words to improve your work. Adjectives and adverbs work really well in these situations.
We will use our editing process before posting and linking to Hyrstmount School.
