julie and her dogs



    he dogsled race was about to begin. Julie’s team of dogs was lined up at the starting gate. Julie stood behind them. The air was so cold that she could see her breath. Other teams were lined up, too, and the dogs were excited. Julie kept her eyes on the clock. At exactly ten o’clock, she and the other racers yelled, "Mush!" The dogs knew that meant "Go!" They leapt forward and the race began!

Julie had trained months for this race, and she hoped she and her dogs would win. Hour after hour, day after day, Julie’s dogs pulled the sled in order to get in shape for the race.

Now, they ran over snowy hills and down into frozen valleys. They stopped only to rest and eat. They wanted to stay ahead of the other teams. The racers had to go a thousand miles across Alaska. Alaska is one of the coldest places on Earth. The dogs’ thick fur coats helped keep them warm in the cold wind and weather. In many places along the route, the snow was deep. Pieces of ice were as sharp as a knife. The ice could cut the dogs’ feet. To keep that from happening, Julie had put special booties on their feet.

At first, the dogs seemed to pull the sled very slowly. They were still getting used to the race. But on the third day out, they began to pull more quickly. They worked as a team and passed many of the other racers. Once, one of the sled’s runners slid into a hole and broke. Julie could have given up then, but she didn't. She fixed it and they kept going.

When they finally reached the finish line, they found out that they had come in first place! It was a great day for Julie and her dogs.

making pan pipes

WALT:We are learning how to write about our activity making pan pipes.


Have you ever made  pan pipes? On October the 25th of 2017 room 8 literacy created their own pan pipes some people were struggling to make it. Pan pipes are kind of hard to make when you put the tape on the straws and the cardboard could move.

First we all got Our things ready and started I was excited even though we didn’t start .Well I made a panpipe before so I started before everyone and people that was on the table that I was on copped me.I was happy because No One ever copies when I do things only maths but no literacy.

We all got eight straws one cardboard tape for all of the people that was on the table.Everybody were swapping straws so they can only have one colour Especially me I was  swapping all eight for colours for all green but guess what I got three yellow straws and five green straws add least I got green more straws than yellow straws I was happy then.


As everybody finishes their instruments and I finish them too We all play with them and said whoo hoo we are finished some people didn't like it because they did It wrong I liked the way my one was made because It was made by me and If It was made by someone else and they gave It to me I wouldn’t like It.You are supposed to make your own not somebody else’s one.

I really like how mine was made because I did It all by my self,I only needed help on the tape part.I learned that when you put the tape on you have to be careful because the cardboard can move.You could make your own Just like everybody in room 8 literacy class.do you like making It by yourself or with a buddy I would work with a buddy but you could make your own because you would be blowing someone else’s germs and you could get sick.
