6th Grade life: Gone, Now, and What’s left

This has been a crazy year. Fun, happy, sad, mean, and whatever other adjectives you would use to describe the year. We first start when we went to Camp Cheerio at the beginning it was nice and then we crashed into a tree on the canoe.  Then we went to Stagville and saw a huge difference of how was life back then. After that we did a plank challenge which still hurts my arms to think about. We went to the Nasher in Durham, NC which was cool. You got to see my baby chicks and how they look now.

All good things must come to an end…

This is the time when I say good….. day because I’m going  to be updating my blog so keep an eye out from this.

See ya’ll soon!

Plank Challenge

Hi!
In class we did a plank challenge, and it was torture.

So what we did was each student at the beginning of the year would see how long they would hold the plank position. My guess for myself was about 10 minutes. Everyday since the beginning of the year we increased the plank by 5 seconds per day.  After we came back from Thanksgiving break we increased the 5 to 10.

The ultimate goal was on the last day. December 19, 2019.  That was the day where we held as long as we could. I held on for 12 minutes and 7 seconds. Some kids held plank for 40 minutes! I mean who can do that?!?! The kid in the white shirt farthest from the kid in the blue they held on each of them for 40 minutes*!

It was a hard time and I thought 12 minutes was hard…

Thanks!
