How Big is Your Brave?

Every  year the sixth grade students are inspired by the brave characters in Wonder and they participate in an event called MIX IT UP AT LUNCH. This event happens with students all over the country on the same day.

This year we will be Mixing It Up on October 27th. Students should be prepared to sing, dance, sit somewhere new, and talk to kids they don't normally speak with. 

Below is a music video of the song Brave. Look at these people getting their groove on everywhere!
How Big Is Your Brave?

WONDER:  This week in class our novel is making many references to outer space and astronauts. I showed the students a link to the International Space Station. 
In one of my classes we actually got to watch the sun set from space!! So cool. 
If it is morning on the West Coast, take a look at what is going on right now. After the sun sets (during early afternoon time), the live camera sees only black.



I am thinking of a famous person.

This person was born on February of 1963. He is 6’ 6” tall. He played for the Washington Wizards for about 2 years, and he also played for the Chicago Bulls. His numbers were 9, 45, 12, and 23. He is really good at basketball. He received a Rookie of the Year Award. His nicknames are Air Jordan, Black Cat,  MJ, and His Airness. He helped his teams make it to playoffs.

Who is this person?

While I was in Ms. Davis’ class getting my work done, I asked Hayley what she is doing this weekend. 

She said she is going to miss school and go up to Paradise on Friday. She is going to her aunt’s house with her mom where there will be a Halloween party. She is going to dress as a burglar after making her own costume at home. Hayley loves her aunt. She used to live with her aunt who has been in Paradise for three years and in Magalia for 15 years before that. Hailey will return home on Sunday.

  1. I love to draw and read. I mostly draw people, fairies and warriors in the style of Manga Shoujo which is one of the favorite types of art in Japan. The drawings usually have big eyes and are bright and colorful.
  2. I’ve been going to Disneyland 5 summers in a row. I’m excited to be going back this year. Every year I ride the Tower of Terror and my mom is afraid every time.
  3. This year I’m planning on trying out for every sport available for 6th grade girls. I hope to make each one. I have already made both the volleyball and basketball teams. I don’t know what is next, but I am ready!

  1. My brave is BIG! I'll show you on the 27th!

  2. I am looking forward to Mix It Up at lunch. I'll be there! Ms. Davis, you know I'm always prepared to sing and dance. I'm not sure that my brave is as big as yours is though. I checked the link to the International Space Station. So cool! I want to see a sunset so I'll be logging in again to see if I can catch one.

    Angy - I am a big basketball fan so I knew immediately who your person was. Did you know that M.J. was cut from his high school team because the coaches thought he lacked skills. I bet they feel foolish now!

    Luke - Sounds like Hayley will have a fun time at her aunt's house and at the Halloween party.

    Ms. Davis and students, I enjoy reading this blog each week. Keep up the good work!

    Ms. Farrar

    Kimberlee - I am stumped. I will guess that #2 is a lie.

    Luke-I Think Hayley is having a blast at her aunts house I wish Hayley has fun at the Halloween party.
    Kimberlee- I think number 2 is a lie

  6. Hello Ms.Davis,It looks like you are having fun working out and reading!I think putting in the the work out equipment was a good idea because it shows that this classroom isn't just about learning it is also about having fun :) ;)
