Clemson Football, By Anna Kate S.
Do you watch college football? Well I do and Clemson is number one! This is the first time in years, but we are undefeated. I bet all Clemson fans are so happy we beat Gamecocks. It was easy because they weren’t even ranked. The Gamecocks played a good game. We only beat them by five points. Clemson is 12-0 and Gamecocks 3-9. That means we haven’t lost any games and they have won 3 games and lost 9 games. So who do you think is a better team? Clemson or the Carolina Gamecocks? Clemson plays Alabama next but, on New Year’s we play Oklahoma.

Christmas Craft, By Dakota L.
One of my favorite crafts to do at Christmas is a Santa Okra and this is how you make it. What you will need is
. A dried okra pod
. White paint
Now when your okra pod has dried out (it will take a couple weeks to dry out. You also need to put it outside to dry) paint a face on your okra (a face that looks like Santa). Then paint the rest of it red and the end white and there your Santa is made! Then you poke a hole in the top of the okra and the take string and put it through the whole the tie the string and then you have an ornament!
Building in the world of Minecraft! By Kassidy T.
Have you ever heard of Minecraft? I joined because I have never played before. It’s all about being creative and it’s not all about racking up points. We also build! Minecraft is a world of imagination were kids can be themselves. We all need to do that. Minecraft club is pure awesomeness! What we are working on now are Christmas specials like Santa’s work shop, reindeer playground, and an elf training ground! My friends and I are building a Santa’s work shop. Minecraft is cool join us today! We have a pretty long waiting list. That’s what I have to say about Minecraft.
Clemson/Carolina Reading Challenge, By Rebecca R.
For the Carolina vs Clemson reading challenge, you had to read 6 books and write the title and the author name. Then your teacher had to sign the paper. Then your name was sent to the State Department. Every kid in South Carolina who participated was put in a drawing. Then they picked two kids, one for Carolina and the other for Clemson. They won four tickets for the game. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the reading challenge. Unfortunately nobody from our school won but we are proud of everyone.
Classroom Technology: Padlet, By Kamira H.
Have you ever done a Padlet? On Padlet we type about stuff that we learn in class. We write about study guides and subjects. I don’t do Padlet very much, but I still like to do it because Padlet helps you learn more about what you are learning in class. I have done Padlet on Sarah Morton, explorers, Emily Geiger, Samuel Eaton and many other things. Padlet is very helpful because if you don’t know something Padlet can help you out by reading what other people write.

Before Pajama Day~
A bunch of teachers and students love pajama day! This is a day where you can wear your pajamas to school! Pretty amazing but I want to know more like “How long have we done Pajama Day?”, “Why do we do Pajama Day?”. There are so many things I want to ask and learn!
After Pajama Day~
I found out that we have been doing Pajama Day for more than five years! We do Pajama Day for reading. Some classes get read to by somebody. Other classes can get hot chocolate and cookies! Did you have fun on Pajama Day?
