Spelling Game

For spelling, I played a harder game called "Farker Frog". I had to guide my frog through the road full of cars, across the lake with moving logs, to find letters to the chosen word. My spelling words for the holidays are at the bottom of the game.

The Marvelous Homework and Housework Machine - Kenn Nesbitt

Attention all students! Attention all kids!
Hold onto your horses! Hold onto your lids!
We have just exactly the thing that you need
whenever you've way too much homework to read.

The Marvelous Homework & Housework Machine
will always make sure that your bedroom is clean.
It loves to write book reports ten pages long,
then put all your toys away where they belong.

This wonderful gadget will do all your math,
then mop up your messes and go take your bath.
The Marvelous Homework & Housework Machine
is truly like no other gizmo you've seen.

It hangs up your clothes on their hangers and hooks,
then reads all your boring geography books.
It brings you a pillow to give you a rest,
then brushes your teeth and prepares for your test.

This thing is amazing. I'm sure you'll agree.
It feeds you dessert while you're watching T.V.
There's only one thing this device will not do.
It won't eat your Brussels sprouts; they're, like, P.U.

The Aliens Have Landed - Kenn Nesbitt

The aliens have landed!
It's distressing, but they're here.
They piloted their flying saucer
through our atmosphere.

They landed like a meteor
engulfed in smoke and flame.
Then out they climbed immersed in slime
and burbled as they came.

Their hands are greasy tentacles.
Their heads are weird machines.
Their bodies look like cauliflower
and smell like dead sardines.

Their blood is liquid helium.
Their eyes are made of granite.
Their breath exudes the stench of foods
from some unearthly planet.

And if you want to see these
sickly, unattractive creatures,
you'll find them working in your school;
they all got jobs as teachers!

Missing Letter Match


Today for Spelling I was playing Missing Letter Match. The name says it all. I had to find the letters that can complete the words. I was up to level eight.

Basic Facts

This week for Basic Fact, I had 30 questions to answer. Most of them were divided by's and some were timetables. All the questions I wrote were correct and I got nothing wrong.

Jeffery the Fish.

On Thursday, 12th of September, another fish in our classroom, whose name is Jeffery, passed away unexpectedly. We didn't panic, like the other time when Ginja Ninja (the orange goldfish) passed away also during in the holidays last term. We will be buying more fish from the money we raised. Now, we only have one class fish left, Alvin.

Spelloons

Today for spelling I played a game called "Spelloons". I had to keep the balloons that have the right spelling and the ones with the incorrect spelling pop on the spikes. I made it into Level 2.

Great Explorers At School by Rex Miller

The teacher stood with pen in hand
"What year did Armstrong's spaceship land?
When did Columbus sail the seas
to put his precious Queen at ease?
And how about intrepid Scott?
I need some answers now you lot!"
I see this means that you have failed
to find where Captain Cook once sailed”
and no one knows of Francis Drake?”
The students watched the teacher shake
“I set this homework late last week
and here you are...will no one speak?”

Then one by one the students rose
the teacher raised her arms and froze.
The students spoke, their voices one
“Yes miss, the homework has been done.
In Nineteen sixty nine, in mid July
Armstrong’s rocket streaked the sky,
and during fourteen ninety two
Columbus found great lands anew.
Then Captain Cook was big down under
with so much land it’s little wonder,
and Drake, well miss, for goodness sake
he sailed the globe without a break.”

The teacher fell back in her chair,
which tumbled down, feet in the air.
She jumped back up and screamed out loud
“My class you’ve made me very proud!”

Spellasaurus

Another Game I've been practising spelling on is Spellasaurus. This spelling game is that I have to find the letters to the word. If I finish that word, I avoid getting eaten up by the dinosaur.

Spelling Game

On Spelling, I did a game that is another car game, where I spell words while driving a car. If I spell the whole word right, I move on to another word. I have to hurry though, as my gas can run out.
