O-10's The Place To Be
4th Grade - 2014-2015
O-10's The Place to Be by Ms. Gopez
A day in O-10 is a day worth spending
Because we have fun while learning and laughing
Crazy as it seems we know how to work and play
David can joke around but he’ll raise his hand to say—- that
Even if your story or your poem makes sense
Figurative language can be added to make it dense
Guess about the meaning and you’ll never be wrong
Here in O10
Joy to see readers become strong!
Kendal, Ciani, Elia like to gossip at lunch
Laila, Paige, and Kaylah love to have lunch bunch
Maybe next year when Drake and everyone’s in fifth grade
No one will be separated and the friendships won’t fade
Oh how Krystof wishes that this year could slow down
Picture all the good times, turn your frown upside down
“Quiet as a mouse” Ms. Gopez tells Algioun to enter the room
Ronald tip toes silently but drops his books which go BOOM
So Laksh, Delaney, Redjina, and Kelsey start to laugh
Then Dao runs to hug Ronald and pats him softly on the back
United we stand, we’re a close knit family
Very much a happy place to read, write, play, and be
Well, Karfala and Priscila, they would most likely agree
Xavier and Emily say in O10 you feel free, to be
Yourself and embrace your weirdness all around
Zjahmir, Delano, Dylan say it’s the best class that can be found!

What are some awesome strategies or techniques that we used as we learned in ELA and Social Studies this year?
What are your favorite memories in O10 and why:
Memory 1 -- Personalities
I will always remember my first words this year. It was something along the lines of...
"You will learn quickly that I am a weird teacher, and one of my main goals is to show you how it's ok to be your weird self. Embrace your weirdness."
After a few months, more and more of our class came out of their little shells. We each began to realize each other's personalities--humor, pet peeves, interests, strengths... and it was so easy for everyone to just accept everyone for who they are.
Just like any family, it's not perfect and there can be moments where we need to resolve conflicts and start over again. We always worked it out and we always start each day as a clean slate.
