I made a crystal. My dad made some when he was a kid. We made it like Matilda did.

I brought four crystals and some of them are the same colour.

Restaurant Fun

 Ms. Martindale shared a Mo Willems book.
Have you read The Pigeon and the Hot Dog?
 "We are making a reservation page for the restaurant," said Dane, Emily and Emily.
 What happens to margarine if we sit it on top of the Popcorn maker?
"I think it will melt from the heat," said Harry.
 "The popcorn sounds like fireworks," said Logan.
 Yes. Harry was right. It went from being solid to being a liquid.
The heat changed the margarine.
Did the popcorn taste different or the same, with liquid margarine on it?
 Using our modelling techniques. I feel like pizza today....
 How could we make coloured popcorn?
Put in some drops of food colouring.
 Mix it in. Red popcorn.
Did it change the taste?
 This is the hot dog truck.
Some of us buy hot dogs from the stand outside Mitre 10.
 The liquid margarine soaked into the paper.
It made it see through.
 Our Super Star worked hard on his popcorn template.
Great cutting skills. Nearly ready for some delicious popcorn.
We all love M.O.O.T.

Yay! No Rain

In the morning we made shakers 
so we could cheer on our Year 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 
brothers, sisters and friends.

Balancing Scales

 We wondered how heavy these popcorn kernels were.
Which is heavier, these popcorn kernels or a glass marble?
 We poured the kernels onto one side of the scales.
 Look what happened.
 We guessed how many glass marbles we would have to use to balance the scales.
 We put all of our guesses into counting order.
 Kobi kept a tally while we added marbles one at a time.
Yay! Finally the two sides matched. 
When they weighed the same, the scales balanced.
Guess how many glass marbles we used?

Cross country shakers

We are feeling healthy, happy, joyful, great, strong and nervous.

Ready to run!

The Little Red Hen

Is this version the same as our Big Book?

Rata Hui

We had a Rata Hui to hand out certificates to people who were awesome at managing their time.
They worked nicely with different friends to complete an activity.
Some people completed three!

Check out the cool song we sang on our 'songs' page.

M.O.O.T. on PhotoPeach
We are great at managing our own time.
We completed lots of activities today.
We did another experiment with bread.
Have you ever painted bread with coloured milk
and then toasted it?
It looks and tastes great!
Just like the Little Red Hen,  we planted alfalfa seeds today.
We hope they sprout!
Some of us made puppets so we could act out 'The Little Red Hen.'
Today we made a pinch pot and a coil pot.
Look at our great sculpting.

We solved a maths problem...

We highlighted the important information.
We worked out what we had to find out.
We knew what to do.
We chose a partner to work with.
We used equipment to help us.
We put buttons on the cats.
Each cat needed 4 buttons.
We counted all the buttons we had used.
We got 16 buttons.
We know Pete's mum needs to buy 16 buttons for her 4 little cats.
Cameron, what if the little cats need 5 buttons each for their jackets?
Mum cat will need 20 buttons.
Great counting in 5's!
