Pirate Birthday Chart

We are learning to record tally marks, make a graph and ask questions about that graph.

Here we are holding cupcakes with the date of our birthday on it.
We used the birthdays in each month of the year to create a tally mark chart.
A tally chart is an easy way to collect information.
We used this information to draw graphs. 
Some of us were very clever and used
to create a graph.
Then we wrote questions for others to answers.
Can you answer the questions?

Will I Am singing gets Room 14 Inspired

Room 14 are very inspired by Will I Am sing "What I Am."
Have a listen to the lyrics.
We are off to Birkenhead Leisure Centre next week for 
an outdoor education day of 
kayaking, rock climbing and learning about outdoor survival.
We think these lyrics will help us to be 
motivated and determined to succeed. 

"I'm gonna keep my head up high / keep on reaching high / Never gonna quit / Just keep getting stronger / Nothing's gonna bring us down."

The Crayon Box that Talked by Shane DeRolf

We read the book "The Crayon Box that Talked"
 by Shane DeRolf.

Mrs Laburn read Room 14 a book called "The Crayon Box that Talked." It was about when there were crayons that could talk and none of them like red and yellow or other kinds of colours too. But a little girl came and took them home and she coloured with them and when she finished drawing red said "I like yellow." And green liked blue. The message was working together and working a team.
By Kriesha

In the class my teacher read a book to us. It had a message. The message was that one crayon makes a boring picture but all crayons make a good picture and they all need each other to make a colorful picture.
By Enrico

Mrs Laburn read us a story called "The Crayon Box that Talked" and I think the message was that everyone is special.  We all work as a group and we all help each other because the crayons were mean in the first place but next they knew that everyone is special because only one colour makes a boring picture but if you use all the crayons it will make an excellent picture.
By Claire

On Friday Mrs Laburn read us a book called "The Crayon Box that Talked." The crayon's in the box didn't like each other but when they co-operated they made a good picture. Now they know that they need each other. Each one is special.  If they work together they can make a colourful world.
By Krishant

Watch the vimeo clip below and see if you understand the message that the poem teaches us.
