Get What You Give

This is our topic for this week. We are singing a version of the New Radicals song You Get What You Give. Here is the chorus:

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is going to pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give

We discussed how everyone has special talents and skills inside them. Students recognized that reason to live doesn't just mean staying alive, but means getting the most out of life. Success comes from not giving up, extra effort, and hard work!

Students--for extra credit in reading comment about our read aloud book by Gordon Korman on today's blog with a prediction of what will happen if Aiden and Meg from On the Run, Chasing the Falconers try to find Frank Lindenauer.

I believe the Falconers will sell the mountain bikes for money so they can take a train to their house and get a picture of Frank so they know what face to look for. ;-\

Great prediction. It will be interesting to see if your prediction comes true!

I think that so far Chasing the Falconers is a good book. For tomorrows read aloud I think that the guy from the gas station just wants to know where Aidan and Meg Falconer are going

I think that chasing with the falconers is a good book and I hope Mr. Mcguire will read another good book

I think that when they get to their lake house they would get the picture and they would let Miguel stay at the lake house or stay with Aidan and Meg.
