Mr. Grotte’s Goldfish


Mr. Grotte has 5 goldfish in his classroom at school. What do they do to eat? They put rocks in their mouths, then eat the gunk, and spit the rock out. They also have a big fish tank that the fish swim around in all day. Mr. Grotte sometimes has to clean their fish tank out from all the algae. There is a fish that is missing one eye. One of the fish are missing both of his eyes! I think it was from a fight, poor fish. The biggest fish of all died like 3 months ago! R.I.P. Big Fish. That’s Mr.Grotte’s goldfish. Thank you reading

Our History Project


Have you ever wondered about Coastal Indians or Plateau Indians?  We were asked to explore:  Day in the Life …., or share artifacts on Coastal Indians or Plateau Indians. Some groups picked Coastal People and others picked, Plateau People.  We choose our information from websites on the iPad and found other facts from our social studies book.  Everyone can find artifacts from historical places and bring them in to show. We think it is important to have a challenge in school and in school you need to be challenged with the people you work with.

There was a science fair on March 27th. It was in the lunchroom in rows on the tables. It was from 10:00 to11:00 A.M. If you don't know what a science fair is, it something where you make a project and present them to everyone who comes to you. 5th graders, 3rd graders, 2nd graders, 1st graders and parents walk around and ask questions about the projects. You can also list facts and materials about your project. The theme of the project is electricity. One of my favorite projects was the floating paper clips. Most of the projects had magnets. There were some of the best projects

I've ever seen, the best one I think is the electric drawbridge. It was amazing, they did a great job.

Easter is a national holiday that gives candy but is the only holiday that you have to find the candy. You find the candy that's inside the (plastic of course) eggs. The Easter bunny hides the eggs so you have to find them to get to the candy inside. Our favorite holiday is Easter because it celebrates Jesus's rebirth (and because you get candy)! We think Easter is important because Jesus came back to life. Hope you are going to die eggs this Easter and have fun.

Google Docs


Have you ever wondered about Google docs? It is a very useful tool when typing. Not even old people know how to use it. You don't have to save it- it saves for you! You can edit, change size of text and spaces in between returns. You can also change the color of text! I hope that you enjoyed our paragraph and maybe you will make an account some day!
