This week, let's meet Mrs. Ranney's third graders from California! 
We are a group of 12 girls and 10 boys!

Enjoy watching the slide show to learn more about us!

  1. Dear Mrs. Ranney and students,

    I'm so glad I get to know you better this week. That was a great slideshow. I'm really looking forward to seeing your animal reports when they're finished! It looks like everyone is working very hard on those.

    I've never even heard of some of the games you play at recess. For example, how do you play Chinese handball? That might be something my students are interested in learning how to play.

    Look forward to some comments from my students this week!

  3. Dear Mrs.Ranney,

    I love the slideshow!

    My favorite part of the slideshow was when you showed us at recess, in the libary, doing alphasmats, and at the Chumash Indian assembly.
    I like doing the quad blogging with three other classes, one from Massachusetts, Austrailia, Califionia, and British Columbia, Canada.

    I hope everyone has fun doing the quad blogging!

    Sincerely,
    Jordyn

  4. Dear All quad blogging buddies,

    Hi my name is Carly, and I am in Mrs. Ranney's class. I can't wait until your posts are up!

    One thing that I am looking forward to is learning a bit about you.

    @Mr. Avery, Chinese handball is a game where you use a handball, and you try to hit it back and forth with another person for as long as you can. If somebody hits it out of the court they are out.

    Also, if their hit bounces too much before it gets to the other person, then the person who hit the ball is out. Another rule for Chinese handball is that if you hit the ball and it doesn't bounce at all by the time it gets to the other person, then the person who hit it is out.

    You can have a split in Chinese handball too. A split means that there are 2 people playing on 1 team. Sometimes the splits play against 1 person who doesn't have a split. The way it works is that the person who doesn't have a split gets 1 life. A life is, when you get out, then that is your life because you are playing against 2 people that are splits. That is how it is fair.

    If I forgot anything about Chinese handball I will write you back.

    @Charlotte and Paige in 3DD, I am glad that you guys liked the new post! I enjoy using the alphasmarts. Maybe you will get to use them sometime.

    Warm Regards,
    Carly:)

    We are really excited to be Quad buddies with you!

    We loved watching your video and have tons of questions we can't wait to ask you. We will get a chance to go to the computer lab later today.

    We noticed that there are a lot of similarities and differences between our two classes.

    I have been wanting to visit your blog. Here is my favourite part about the Slide show:
    I think it is cool that you get to have a assembly every Friday! We only get to have one twice a year! Our First Nations made all sorts of things like hammers with pieces of wood and rocks.

    Bamboo sounds like lots and lots of fun. I wish I knew how to play it but I do not:(
    At my school we play:
    Tether ball
    Sand man
    Kick ball
    and basketball
    Have you ever played these games?
    Every weekend I go to Mt Cain and play polar bears or penguins.

    I really like your slide show.
    What is chinese handball and how do you play? We don't play Chinese handball, but we make up games. Also we make up clubs and we use hopscotch. We also play with basketballs. Also we play in the sand and we play tetherball. We play on the monkeybars and on the slide. We skip rope and play in our forest.

  19. Dear Quad Blogging Buddies,
    We are certainly off to a great start!

    @ Mr. Avery,I hope you enjoyed Carly's thorough answer to your question about Chinese handball! since you mentioned our "animal reports," I think you might enjoy our post called The Great Kapok Tree. We are using our research in a very creative way, as you will see by the comments!

    @ Mrs. Watson's class, I am so glad you were able to go to the computer lab today and write comments. My class read your comments this afternoon, and they were very excited to respond to you! Be on the lookout for their comments back to you!

  21. Dear Mrs Ranney and 3rd class,


    I think your video was great! I have made a connection with your morning assembly, but we have our assembly at the end of the day. We don't really celebrate birthdays at the assembly but we do in our class. We also hand out awards too.

    I think Alphasmart type writers are really cool! :)

    How many playgrounds do you have?

    Well I think that's all!

    Mrs De Vries loves ♥ blogging and meeting new blogging buddies.

    At Leopold Primary School some people play basketball.

    We learned that you have assembly on Friday and we have it on Monday.

    We are all enjoying Grade 3.

    We can't wait to start blogging with you.
    You may know us from last year in
    2KM and 2KJ.

    We found your slide show very amusing and interesting. We have learnt a lot about your school.

    We discovered some different things that we do not have at our school:

    We have assembly on Monday afternoons and you have assembly on Friday mornings.
    You have alphasmarts to practise typing and we don't.
    You have Native American Tribes and we have Aboriginals.

    We were wondering what Chinese handball is? Is it just like the normal handball?
    The games that you were playing looked and sounded fun.

    I picked the Jaguar for the Great Kapok Tree play. The post will be up in about a week. Please watch the play when it's up. The author of the book is Lynne Cherry. Try to find the book in your local library. I hope you get to read The Great Kapok Tree in your lifetime.

    I have a question for you:

    Are you in second or third grade?

  26. What a great slideshow. Did you know the Chumash Indians had a type of stone that helped them to make fire and they traded that stone for shells from the Indians who lived on the outer Channel Islands. Today the Channel islands have no people living on them.

  27. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,

    We really enjoyed your presentation. Our class has a few questions for your class. We wanted to know about a couple of the games you play at recess? How do you play bamboo and dummy kickball?

    Our school is similar to yours in some ways. We get awards for our birthdays. We get pencils and we do that everyday instead of just on Friday. We also have a basketball court that some use for recess. We have a field though that has soccer nets on it.

    Our school is different from yours in a lot of ways as well. Your music room looks a lot different than ours. We have big tables in ours and only a small carpet. For music, we all have our own recorder that we practice on to prepare for concerts. Here in Massachusetts, we learned about our local Native Americans called the Wampanoags. We didn't do all those fun activities like you did though.

    Did anyone start a fire? If you didn't, what else do you think you would've needed to start it?

    Dear Mr. Avery,

    We are so excited to be one of your blogging buddies. We wanted to tell you our favorite games to play at lunch. One thing we like to do at lunch is play the game bamboo. Bamboo is when you jump over two bars and try to tag the other person. Another thing we like to do is play four square. Last but not least we like to play handball and chines handball. It is a lot of fun being your blogging buddies.

    Dear Dante,

    Hi, this is Jordyn and Jamie. We are glad that you enjoy being our quad blogging buddy. We have a question for you: Did you participate in World Maths Day? If you didn't, World Maths Day is a website where you get to compete against different people all around the world. You can choose to play addition, subtraction, division, or multiplication. You get 60 seconds to answer as many problems as you can, and whoever does the most problems without three wrong answers wins. We hope you do well on your test!

    Best Regards,

    Jordyn and Jamie :)

  30. @Justin,

    Our recess is 20 minutes and our lunch is 45 minutes. Our school day is 6 hours and 16 minutes long.

    @Ana,

    You play Bamboo with 2 parallel upside down smiles. They're 2 people at each end. When someone calls "bamboo" they both go through the poles and then they hop over the poles. Then they keep on running through the poles until someone tags the other person.
    Also, how do you play Sandman?

    @Sophie,
    The assemblies are 20 minutes long.

    Sincerely,
    Aidan and Justin

  31. Dear Mr. Avery,
    Dummy Kickball is like dodge ball. If you don't know how to play dodge ball, this is how you play. You take a soft ball that does not hurt and then you have to throw the ball at the other team and hit somebody. If you get hit with the ball you go to the other side. That is how you play Dummy Kickball. We also have a soccer field.

    @ Silkence,
    what does you forest look like? What kind of games do you play in your forest at recess and lunch? Is your forest huge or tiny? This is how you play Chinese handball. There is only one rule to follow, the rule is to hit the ball back and forth. There is something called splits. Split means is that you can have a partner on your team, and the other person can have a split too, but if he or she don't want to have one they get a life because the other person has a partner so thats why he gets a life. If know one has a split the two people play against each other who ever wins wins the game.

    Warmly,
    Gal and Edo

    Dear Sophie,

    Hi this is Carly and Emily. We are glad that you think that it is interesting that we have Assemblies. Our Assemblies end at different times because some of our Assemblies are longer than others.

    Both of us think that it is really fascinating that you only have 2 Assemblies a year.

    @Kennedy Yes, we both do think that it was really enthralling and really fun to learn about the Native Americans.

    We think that it is very interesting that you call them First Nations People.

    We have 1 question though:

    Why do you call them First Nations People?

    @Millie, Sophie, Skye, and Zoe, Both of us think that it is wonderful that you were in 2km and 2kj last year.


    Another thing that we think is interesting is that you have Assemblies on Mondays, and we have Assemblies on Fridays.

    We have had lots of fun finding differences and similarities!

    Yours Truly,

  37. Dear Mr. Avery,

    At the Chumash assembly we did not make a burning fire,but we did make some heat.

    Here are some tips about playing Bamboo. To play Bamboo you have to have two bars side to side and run around them like the number 8.

    And also how do you play toilet tag?

    My name is Natalie and I'm in Mr. Avery's class. It's great to be Quadblogging buddies with you. I really loved your slideshow. I noticed a few things that we have in common. Your school gives out birthday awards and so does our school. We have playgrounds and assemblies. I also noticed a few differences. Your school is in a state that is as far west as you can go and our state is as far east as you can go. Most of your teachers have blogs but in our school, there are not many teachers who have blogs. You have over twenty kids in your class but we only have fifteen. I can't wait until your class gets to visit our blog next week.

    Do you go to music class?

  45. Dear Ella,
    It's Natalie. I am going to answer some of your questions. No, not all of the classes have fifteen students. The other fourth grade has eighteen! Yes, we do have music. We sit at tables. We practice playing our recorders for concerts. We go to music on Thursdays. The other class goes to music on Fridays. We do have libary on Tuesdays. We check out three books. We have art. Right now we are making Roman clay pots. We get to pick which type of pot we want to make. I picked the dinosea. A dinosea is a bowl that some people use as holding prizes. In our school, the highest grade goes to sixth grade. In sixth grade you have to do a geography fair. Everybody goes to computer lab. We sometimes go on a website on a subject that Mr. Avery thinks we need more practie on like math. We somethimes go on glogster and Mr. Avery tells us what to show. Like he said we should do a glog about photosythesis. He put in on the blog. You can see it next week when it's our turn with the Quadblogging. What does the highest grade in your school?
    I really like the koala on the main screen.
    I had a few questions. How many students are in your class? Do you have computer lab? What is your favorite subject.

  46. Dear Natalie,

    It’s Ella. I am going to answer your questions. The highest grade in my school is fifth grade. Your school has one more grade than mine! I have twenty-two kids in my class. I do have computer lab. We go there every other Tuesday. Sometimes we go on World Maths Day, which is a website where we compete against students in other countries while answering math equations. For my favorite subject, I can’t decide between music and art. Music is so amusing and art is so interesting. My favorite homeroom subject is spelling.

    I found out our schools and classes are different in several ways. Here are the differences:
    Your school goes up to sixth grade and mine goes up to fifth. Your class has fifteen students and my class has twenty-two. Your class does glogging and mine does not. Your class is a forth grade class and mine is a third grade class. You go to library on Tuesday and mine goes on Friday. Finally, your class checks out three books and mine checks out two books.

    Our schools and classes are also alike in a few ways. For example, we both are in grades higher than second. We both have music on Thursdays. We both go to art. We both go to computer lab. Finally, we both have a number of students that are in the two digit numbers.

    I have two questions:

    What is glogster? What is your favorite subject?
