Morpheus and the Creative Cougars

Hi this is Morpheus and I'm here with Lexi. She introduced me to the Creative Cougars. They are so cool. They had their class election a few days ago. I like Creative Cougar. He is a stuffed cougar. He is one of my close friends, but the Creative Cougars are my friends too. They take lots of pictures of me. I like it, because I feel so famous. They did a great job for red ribbon week. We did so many cool things. They even have a website called http://www.jabernethy.com/ . You can go there and even check it out because it is really cool. It has different kinds of websites on it. They are fun and you do work at the same time. You can go to that website if you just click on it. I am going to miss them a lot when I have to leave. I hope they will miss me too. I am sure they will miss me a lot, because they did so many fun things with me.

Electoral Colleges


Hi. I am Morpheus. I came to Mrs.Abernethy's class. I just learned about electoral colleges. They are based on the population of a state. California has the most electoral colleges with 55. That's a lot and Texas is next. It is odd that Texas doesn't have the most electoral college votes, because it's the biggest state. They had a class election while I was here and their votes were based on their states' electoral college votes.

That's all and this is from Morpheus .

Morpheus and the Lizards

Hi! My name is Morpheus. I am at Mrs. Abernethy's Creative Cougar Class. Mrs. Abernethy has lots of pets. She lives on a farm.o She has a lot of pets at school to. She has a ferret and three lizards. I like to play with the lizards. Their names are Lightning, Tornado, and Thunder. We like to pose for pitcures with Creative Cougar. The Creative Cougars take good care of the lizards. Some of the people that take care of them are Jonna, Sierra, Suzy, Lisbeth, Hayli, and Jayda. They take very good care and let the lizards pose for pictures. I have met three great friends in my adventure at Mrs. Abernethy's Creative Cougars Class.

Band

Hi! I am Morpheus. I got to see all the fifth graders that are in band. It was amazing. They are professionals. I love it! I would play the trumpet because the trumpet only has three keys. Flute looks the hardest. When the whole band plays, it is really loud. The flute is the quietest. The saxophone and the trumpet are the loudest. Ms. Burke is the music, chorus, and band teacher. It was so fun!! I love band! If I come to your school show me the band room.

Study Island



By: Carter
Study Island is a webstite that kids can go on and do different lessons on subjects such as reading, writing, and math. You can also play games like home run derby or mini golf and so on. The best part [in my opinion] is earning blue ribbons everytime you pass a lesson. Then you feel like a winner. It is a very cool website.I like it alot. Click this link to go to: Study Island.

Class Election

By: Ashley



Hi this is Morpheus. I am going to tell you all about the Creative Cougar's class election. Josh was running against Lexi. They all voted for someone on the laptops. No one can tell who they voted for. Now Josh is our new class president. He asked Lexi to be our new vice president. They were probably nervous. Here is a picture of them.




Halloween





By: Cheyanne

Hi I'm Morpheus and I'm going to talk about our Halloween party. We had a Halloween party on the 29th. It was really fun! We played mummy wrap up! We had cookies and juice and candy! There were a lot of people at the party. There were even some adults that came in to help with the party.


We all had a BLAST!

Challenge 24



Hi! I`m Morpheus and I`m with Jayda. We are going to talk about Challenge 24. I think Challenge 24 is fun and it encourages people to learn their basic facts and test their knowledge to what they know so far! It`s a lot of fun and you should try it sometime! All you have to do is look at the card, and try to figure out the problem! If the card says, 7, 2, 9 and 1, here`s how you figure out the problem. 7 times 2 equals 14, 14 plus 9 equals 23, and 23 plus 1 equals 24. Always a card has a way to get 24, you just have to figure out how to get to 24. You might get 25, or even 21, but that means your getting closer to figure out the problem! Once you know it, then tap the card with 2 fingers, and then say how you got it. But be careful! You only have a certain amount of time to say it! If you look at the picture below, you`ll see what I`m talking about!








School Yard Habitat

By: Paul
Hi this is Morpheus.
I would like to talk about the Greenville habitat at the school. It is so nice when it is clean and is beautiful all the time. Some kids help out with it at recess. Some people look at it and think what a good job. I'll put a picture of me with the kids in Mrs. Abernethy's Creative Cougars in the habitat. A good amount of soil has to be put in the habitat. I learned that some people like to have a healthy garden. Well so do I. If you want to learn more about our habitat, click on the link: Schoolyard Habitat. Well, have a good time and bye.

Build It Trinity

By: Lisbeth
This is Morpheus! I'm visiting East Elementary. They are doing a project on Trinity. Trinity is land that is all messed up.We are going to try to make the people who own it clean it up. They have dumped toxic waste on the land. I'm not happy about that. They say they'll clean it up. We don't know how well though. I want to see what they do with the land. In the meantime, Mrs. Abernethy's Creative Cougars are coming up with their own ideas about what should be done with the land when it is clean. Here is a link to their wikispace for the project: Build it Trinity. The picture below shows me with the Creative Cougars at the end of the school property. Trinity is behind us.

States

Hi I am Morpheus. In Mrs Abernethy's class everybody has two states. They have to study them and make a poster on them using Glogster. They have to know how many votes their states have, because they used the electoral votes in our class election. I think it is pretty cool. I can't wait to see the posters for the states. I bet they are cool.

Wiki's with Bob the Bear!


Hey Guys! Add VideoIt's Morpheus! I am so excited to tell you guys where I am today! I am here at Mechanicsburg Middle School with Wilkes University graduate teacher education students. Today I learned how to make a brand new wiki website. It's so easy, all you need to remember is three easy steps: edit, link, and save and then it's done!!!!!! Now my friend Bob the Bear can plan our camping trip for Memorial Day on Monday!!!!!!!! What a great day!








Googling Blog Turtles!!!!!!


At Mechanicsburg Middle School, I got to venture into a computer lab and joined a graduate class! It was so exciting, and I learned so much about technology. Now when someone tells me to 'google' something, I am an expert on it! I learned that when you put a '~' sign in front of a topic, it will being up similar words that relate to that topic when you search! I wanted to try out this awesome tip, so I goggled ~Bog Turtle. I came up with 74,900 hits all about my turtle family and friends! I couldn't believe how much information was on there! I feel like Bog Turtles are famous! I can't wait to get home and start googling! :)

Smartboards at Mechanicsburg

Today I visited a Wilkes University graduate class that meets at Mechanicsburg Middle School. The course is full of current teachers who are learning new ways to integrate technology into the classroom. I had a lot of fun!
I got the chance to practice using a smartboard today! The smartboard shows everything that is happening on a computer screen, just like a projector would. Smartboards are special because you can interact with them just like you would on the computer. If I wanted to scroll down on the screen, all I had to do was push the sidebar on the smartboard- I didn't need to use the computer at all! I also learned that I could use special pens on the smartboard, just like you would on a blackoard. These pens come in four different colors and are a lot of fun to use! I drew lots of pictures! I can't wait to use one again!

Sunday May 16, 2010 -- Baseball

After a great morning of learning about our history, I was off to watch the Harrisburg Senators play some baseball with my friends from St. Patrick School. Students from the school got to sing the National Anthem and they led the crowd in singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch.

Check out these photos from the game:





After this busy weekend of learning, I'm ready for a nap. Back at St. Patrick's tomorrow.

Sunday May 16, 2010 -- AHEC

After a great night's rest, we were "up and at 'em" for another great day of learning and fun. Of course, it started off with a good breakfast of homemade waffles. Yummy.

After breakfast I went with the Beeghley family to the Army Heritage Education Center (AHEC) for Army Heritage Days. This annual event allows visitors to see exhibits about soldiers from colonial times to today. I got to visit a World War I trench, Vietnam War bunkers, visit with Civil War soldiers and see lots of items related to our military history.

Here I am resting on a cot in a tent that was similar to the ones used by nurses during the Vietnam War.

This is my cousin Patriot Pete learning about World War I foxholes with a soldier.

These gentlemen are portraying soldiers from the 101st Airborne.

Here I am with a British Grenadier.

And the day wasn't over yet!! Stay tuned for my next stop...

Saturday May 15, 2010


Hi,

Well today I had another great adventure. I started off my day by going to watch my friends from St. Patrick School run in a track meet. The Celtics from St. Pats won the meet and now the JV girls are 9-0, the JV boys are 8-0-1 and the varsity teams are both 8-1 this season.

Here are a few photos from the track meet:



From there we went to Armed Forces Day in Harrisburg. WOW!! There was so much to see and learn about our military. I saw helicopters, tanks, soldiers, veterans and so much more. We should all be very proud of these brave men and women who serve our country.

Here I am with my cousin Patriot Pete checking out one of the armored vehicles.





Getting a tour of a "Stryker" vehicle. Did you know that this thing weighs 39,569lbs!!

Until tomorrow...

First Grade is Fun!


I am having a lot of fun at Dunbar Township. I spent the day in Mrs. Grimm’s first grade classroom and the students read to me. Storytime is so much fun! In Math class we played “Shake it Up” to practice our addition and subtraction facts. I even helped one of the students take a Social Studies test. I can’t wait to see what we do tomorrow.
