  1. Dear Peers,

    You may have been wondering what was going on at the end of the day and what was in the boxs. Well the boxs contained a chiller and other material for a tank. We received this material from Mr. Fisher, the man who delivered the material. He brang us 2 chillers, 3 bottles of tank ecquitment and a box with more trout ecquitment. We took 1 chiller and Mrs. Halloran took the rest (Kevin and I gave the material to her). I hope this will answer some of your questions.

    Sincerely,
    Issac Varghese

  2. Dear Katherine ,Tatianna and Azlynn
    I would like to give you advice for you filter presentation. First of all you should be prepared for any questions you think Mr.Miller may ask. Also, help each other however, Katherine is doing a amazing job teaching you all about the filter . You should also speak loud and project your voice so Mr.Miller can hear you . Finally, don’t be afraid I know you girls will be able to do it probely not on your first try but Issac,Kevin and I didn’t finish I think probely the first ten times but don’t get frustrated.
    Sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

    1. Dear Emma,
      Thank you for your advice my cohort will take that advice and try to do it in our first try.
      Sincerely

    I would like to say congratulations to those of you who won something at the election even if you didn’t win all of those who ran did a phenomenal job. So congratulations to all who ran you showed great diligence and leadership.
    sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

  6. Dear Peers,
    Lately you may have noticted a tank that we filled with water. Those of you who were not in Mrs.Halloran’s class this is a tank for trout. This year we will be rasing trout. you may be wondering what are trout they are fish. If you go onto our website and go on trout you can work on some research on trout.
    Sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

  7. Dear Peers,
    Today some of us found out we are going to be writing our personal narrative. I am excided about writing a personal narrative because writing a personal narrative is a way for us to learn more about each other. For exsample last year I found out that Jake had a pet fish. So that is one reason why we write personal narrative.
    Sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

  8. Dear Mr.Miller

    Sincerely,
    Josiah Watson

  11. Dear Mr.Miller,

    Today I am going to talk about Moby Max. I think it’s a very fun for learning. I like the Category’s that you can choose from. Here are some of them math, science, reading, writing and more. I also think its kinda fun and I also like how you can earn game time to unlock new games.

    Sincerely,

  12. Dear Mr. Miller,
    I would like to know how far Alaska is from Mexico. When I grow up I hope Ican visit Alaska and then go to Mexico. Enjoy the rest of your birthday.

  13. Dear Peers,
    Today is a great day because I have 100% on my test. The way I have a good grade is to make flashcards and don’t rush beacause it is not a race.

    Sincerely,
    Lilly

    1. Dear lilly,
      I think that skill is amazing m maby I’ll use that skill next time I take a test Sincerely ,

  14. Dear Mr.Miller and Peers,

    Today I have learned about the Three Branches of Government. The Branches of Government are the Legislative branch, Executive branch and the Judicial branch. In the Legislative branch there is the Congress which is made up of the Senate and the House of Representatives. In the Executive branch there is the president, vice president and the cabinet members. In the Judicial branch there is the supreme court and other federal courts. These are all the 3 Branches of Government that I learned today, ( Olina said hi to you and your class ).

    Sincerely,
    Kevin Zheng & Olina Zheng
    PS. See you at extra help.

    1. Dear,Kevin

      I have also been studing the 3 branches of the goverment legislative branch makes laws
      and executive branch signs laws.

      Sincerly,
      Amaan Sandal

    2. Dear Kevin,

      Keep up the diligent work.

      In an effort to deepen your understanding, you may want to research the role of cabinet members; what are their responsibilities?

      Sincerely,
      Mr. Miller

      1. Dear Mr. Miller

        I did a research on the topic cabinet members and I found that there are 15 departments. Each department has their own responsibilities. The 15 departments are

        The Secretary of State,
        Secretary of the treasury,
        Secretary of defense,
        Attorney General,
        Secretary of Interior,
        Secretary of Agricultural,
        Secretary of commerce ,
        Secretary of Lobor ,
        Secretary Health and Human Services,
        Secretary of Energy ,
        Secretary of Education ,
        Secretary of Homeland Security,
        Secretary of Transportation,
        Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs ,
        the Secretary of housing and Urban Development .

        Cabinet members advice the president when he needs it .

        Sincerely ,
        Issac Varghese

        1. Dear Issac,

          Outstanding job and impressive diligence on your part.

          In an effort to further your understanding, you might want to determine the focus of each cabinet member. For example, the Treasury Secretary focuses on the economics of our country.

          Keep up the Good Work,
          Mr. Miller

  15. Dear Peers,
    I enjoyed do the experiments .I think the year will go by really fast. But we can learn more by communicating with each other, like posting on the blog. Mr.Miller gave us the priviledge of working in cohorts we should work wisely.
    sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

  16. Dear Mr.Miller,

    Today was a fun day. Today you were not here so I will tell you what happened. We worked in our science fusion text books. I was in a group of four. We almost got to the end if we had 1 more minute we could of completed it. At library we went over lock downs and lock outs and we also picked out 2 books. I cant wait for tomorrow because tomorrow you are going to meet my mom. Thank you for the fun day.

    Sincerely,
    Jake

  17. Dear Mr. Miller

    I love learning and doing experiments with Hope,Lilly.H,Joshua,and you.
    I hope you have a good day and good tomorrow.

    Sincerely,
    Josiah Watson

  18. Dear Mr.Miller
    Thank you for teaching my peers and I about concave,convare, and metacognition. Now I know what all three of the words mean.Concave means it’s the bottom of sphere in a bubble form. Convare means it’s the top of a sphere in a bubble form. Metacognition is thinking about your thinking. I went online found out that meta in metacognition means includes Knowledge about when and how to use particulan strategies for learning or for problem solving. Also cognition in metacognition means thing. So if meta and cognition is metacognition that would mean metacognition means thinking about your thinking.

    Sincerely,
    Azlynn

  19. Mr. Miller,

    I think class is really interesting so far with the stuff we are learning so far and I think the games we are playing are fun. This year is going really good so far!!!👍👍🙂🙂

  20. Dear peers and Mr.Miller, my thoughts on the penn lab experiment was that the experiment tought me a lot about surface tension because that is something I never knew so Mr.Miller thank you for teaching me that and having me as one of your students. Sincerely Tatianna Benjamin

  21. Dear Mr. Miller,
    I enjoy being in your class and I enjoy learning about science. I think I need some extra help because sometimes after I finish the active reading I dont really understand everything.

    Thank You
    Josiah

  22. Dear Peers ,
    I did some research about Surface Tension and Variable. Surface Tension means the force that causes
    the molecules on the sueface of a liquid to be pushed together and form a layer. Variable means the
    one that is manipulated and the one that is observed or measured in the experiment.

    Sincerely,
    Katherine Alvarado

  23. Dear Mr. Miller,

    It is an honor to be in your class and I thank you for teaching us about metacognition. I did some extra research on metacognition and found out that meta in metacognition means beyond and cognition means thinking, understanding, learning, remember and much more. Thus I now know that metacognition means beyond understanding.

    Sincerely,
    Issac Varghese

    1. Dear Issac,

      Thank you for the kind words. I am impressed with your research on metacognition; your post will be very valuable to the rest of your peers. Keep up the good work.

      Sincerely,
      Mr. Miller

  24. Dear peers,
    I think using concept maps will help us gain knowledge because we can build off of our ideas and each other’s ideas.So if we work together we can help each other make bigger webs because we can share ideas.

    Sincerely,
    Emma Horgan

  25. Dear Mr. Miller,

    I am looking forward to doing our concept maps. I am going to tell you how I want to use my concept
    map because I did not stand up on the carpet today at school to share my ideas. I will participate more, I promise . I will use my concept map by sharing my ideas with my peers.

  26. Dear Peers,

    I think the story Mr,Miller told use was amazing because I did not know that people could survive off of potatoes.So for that is why I really liked this story.

    Sincerely,
    Emma

  27. Dear Mr.Miller,
    Today I thought that it was a great day . I was thinking if I can do anther paragraph about benjamin franklin events. good bey Mr.Miller!

  28. Dear Mr.Miller,
    Today I had a lovely day. I thought that if I can write a paragraph about benjamin franklin events again.

    Sincerely,
    Katherine Alvarado

  29. Dear Mr.Miller,
    How have you been? I have started building upon my portfolio over the summer. I took all the documents from my folder and started adding them to my portfolio. Along with this comment is a letter about my experience with this portfolio. I have learned so much from you and will be using them next year.
    Sincerely,
    Olina Zheng ( Your student from 2016 )

    1. Dear Olina,

      Thank you for the kind words both in your post and the video you created with Nicholas; it is truly appreciated. I am glad to know that you are continuing to build upon the wonderful portfolio you built throughout the year. There is no doubt that you will continue to excel in all your endeavors next year.

      All the Best,
      Mr. Miller

  30. Dear Peers,

    Today was a success at Swan Lake!I had alot of fun finding Macro-invertebrates with my group.My group and I found about 20 Macro-invertebrates in all.We found one baby eel and one leach.My group took the pH test .The pH was 7 which is healthy for the trout.I think Swan Lake is a Healthy ecosystem.
    Sincerly,
    Thomas Kelly

  31. Dear Peers,

    I like how we got to search for different kinds of Macro-invertebrates in swan lake and how we got to look at them closely. I also caught a leech, I think it was 2 to 3 inches long! Thank you for this field trip.

    Sincerely,
    Connor

  32. Dear Collabaorative Team,
    Last Thursday morning at 9:45 your class and my class went to Fish Thicket Perseve. Your class probily saw a Tepe like some of my classmates and I. I took two picures of the environment. I have recordings of birds chirping. We started picking up garbage because if we don’t pick up the garbage some of the animals such as biotic factors might get harmed and we do not want that. We are being stewards! Collabaorative Team, how do you think Fish Thicket was? What is your experince about Fish Thicket? If you have time please write back to me about Fish Thicket.

    Sincerely,
    Azlynn Long

  33. Dear Mr. Miller ‘ s 5th grade class,
    Today I saw a bird but it wasn’t the mother duck. The mother duck comes every spring. She comes to lay her eggs and make a new nest. She might use sticks, mud, leaves, grass and rocks to build her new nest. This is what I saw in the rock garden: a bird, a birdfeeder and a bench. I think it is a healthy environment for her and her babies. This morning, the mother duck came back to the school to lay her eggs.

    Sincerely,
    Jake Accomando

    1. Dear Justin
      p.s. If you still go on the blog.

      I am so excited because you make everything look fun. So I am now in he’s class and I realized it is not easy. You are my role model.

      sincerely,
      Lilly

  34. Dear peers,
    My class and I visited Mrs.Washington’s class and we got to see their tower garden. We learned plants can grow without water and guess what! The class does pH tests to the water too and we are thinking maybe we could let 2 kids at a time come to your class to observe the tank.
    sincerely,
    Lilly

  35. Dear Mr. Miller,
    This is for the stock market game rationale. I will be sharing the topic sentence and concluding sentence. The topic sentence is ” Apple is a company that is recognized for the equipment that they build , which is electronic devices”. The concluding sentence is ” Apple is one of the top 3 companies for me to invest in, but when it comes to dividends and prices they are just right, not too much and not too low.
    Sincerely,

  36. Dear Peers,

  39. Dear Olina,
    I wonder how many Brook Trout are in the tank and how many died.And when can I share the Brook Tront Life Cycle with my group and how many are opaque.

    Sincerely, Katherine Alvarado

    1. Dear Katherine,
      I would be glad to answer your question.In total, their are 385 trout remaining and 15 trout have died.I believe that there is 12 opaque trout that have died. If you have time on Thursday January 28, 2016 at 12:35 that would be great.
      Sincerely,
      Olina Zheng

  40. Dear Mr.Miller,

    I would like to inform you that I have received a response from the President. At first I was confused but then I remembered when we wrote to the President last school year. I received a letter,pictures,games, and a paper about the President. So I would like to thank you for being my teacher and helping me in school and with my academics. I’m pleased to tell you that I have made the principles list for the first Quarter. I am always ahead of the class.When the teacher introduces something new, you have already taught it to me. So once again thank you so much!

    Sincerely,
    Isabelle Baginski

    1. Dear Isabelle,

      Congratulations on earning a place on the Principal’s List; it is certainly not a surprise.Your diligence and earnest approach to school is a wonderful example to your peers.
      In addition, I was pleased to read that your outstanding letter to the President received a response from the White House. Wishing you all the best as you continue on your sixth grade academic journey.

      Sincerely,
      Mr. Miller

  41. Dear Peers,

    I would like to inform you to post a comment on the Jamestown Adventure game. I think it was a game that was very interesting and something to learn from. The things you can gain from this game is that it is very hard to start a village so if you thought you could probably make a better village than the leader of Jamestown, think again. I would like you to also post a comment on atoms. I would like you to give tips for studying, not answers to the questions on the quiz. If you do these favors of mine it will benefit all of us. Thank you for the efforts if you do so.
    Sincerely,
    Justin Schlendorf

  42. Dear Mr.Miller,

    I am very sorry that I have forgotten to go on razkids. So if
    it is ok I would like to do razkids in challenge sessions. Next time
    I will try my best not to forgett.

    Sincerely,
    Justin Schlendorf

  43. Dear MR.Miller,

    The Articles of Confederation is a very interesting topic. I
    feel I would be able possibly next week to present to you. I have
    now a good understanding of both sides, the government and the
    farmers. I would like to read more about the Articles of Confederation
    so if you have any more reading about the Articles of Confederation
    I would be pleased.

    Sincerely,
    Justin Schlendorf

  44. Dear Mr. Miller,
    I was just studying the timeline events when I noticed something. At the Leif Ericsson paragraph it said that Leif Ericsson was a Viking. I thought that Leif Ericsson was just a normal person that landed on Newfoundland. Is Leif Ericsson really a Viking?
    Sincerely,
    Olina

    1. Dear Mr.Miller
      Remember when I posted a comment about Leif Ericsson.
      Well on the vikings document I found out that Leif Ericsson was a Viking .
      Was Leif Ericsson mean because you mentioned that vikings were mean and they sometimes could be nice?
      Sincerely ,
      Olina

  45. Dear MR.MILLER, I am wondering if the the people that are the President,Vice President,Speaker of the House,President Pro Tempore,Supreme Court,Class Secretary,and Treasury Secretary if there names will be listed next to there appropriate position.

    Sincerely,

    Justin Schlendorf

    1. Dear Justin,

      Once we have our first election, the elected officials will have their names posted under the position they represent.

      Sincerely,
      Mr. Miller

  49. Dear Mr. Miller I found a class account sheet on the blog. Can I print it and bring it to class to use it for class.

    From Samuel Joel Guzman.

  50. Dear Julianna,

    I would like to acknowledge what you posted about the planets and all of there Greek names.So I thank you on that comment.

    Sincerely,
    Isabelle Baginski

  51. Dear class,
    If you can think back to when we were learning about the planets and names, I know that Pluto is the God of the underworld (a.k.a Hades) I will tell you all of the Roman and Greek mythology names.
    Mercury (Hermes) messenger to the gods
    Venus (Aphrodite) goddess of beauty
    Jupiter (Zeus) king of all gods
    Mars (Ares) God of war
    Saturn (Cronus) God of agriculture and harvest
    Uranus (I do know the name) God of the heavens
    Neptune (Poseidon) God of the sea
    Earth (none)
    There you go! Hope this helps; in a way.
    Sincerely,
    Julianna Tapler

    1. Dear Julianna,

      I acknowledged your comment about the Gods that the planets were named after, and I noticed that you didn’t have a name for Uranus. So, I did a little bit of research and found out that another name for Uranus is Caelus. If you believe that is correct, please respond.

      Sincerely,
      Sam

  52. Dear class,
    I just want to tell you that tomorrow is Danielle Marullo’s birthday. Even though she is not in our class, we still need to wish her a happy birthday. Just a side note, on the 15th, it is Henry’s birthday. Along with Jun Kai and myself. Wish you all the best and many more birthdays to come!
    Sincerely,
    Julianna Tapler

  53. Dear Class,

    As a reminder we have intramural’s tomorrow so don’t forget to bring sneakers.

    Sincerely,
    Isabelle Baginski

  54. Dear Peers,

    In our math homework today when you are doing double division you may find yourself having to count the first digits by 3 or you may need to use 2 different numbers to count first.I hope this will help you.

    Sincerely,
    Isabelle Baginski

  55. Dear Mr.Miller,

    When I was doing my homework there was a caption on page 141 and it stated the colonists attacked the tax collectors,they tared and feathered them and poured tea into their mouths.This reminded me of a video I watched last year.It is called”Liberty kids” and in the video it explained what being tared and feathered is like.Tar is a hot oil that sticks to your skin and they put feathers on you to make you look silly.So the tar gives you a great deal of pain so it isn’t very pleasant.

    Sincerely,
    Isabelle Baginski

  56. Dear Mr.Miller and classmates,
    Sorry I haven’t been on the blog lately. I want to wish you all a happy 2015! I hope you all had fun and I hope you enjoy me as your president for the second trimester!
    Sincerely,
    Julianna Tapler

  57. Dear Mr. Miller and my peers,
    I know it is a little late, and I am sorry, but I hope everyone has had a merry Christmas and will have a happy New Year.
    Sincerely,

  59. Dear peers,
    In my opinion our class did a great job in the elections.
    Congratulations to everyone who ran for a position and accomplish being in the government of our class!
    Good job on those who ran and didn’t win, I believe we will all accomplish that position of the government
    next trimester.
    Sincerely,
    Gianna Sacco

    1. Dear Gianna and sam,

      Great job on your speeches. I think you are perfect for your parts.
      Hope you keep your parts!!!
