Social Studies Unit Wrap Up

Dear Parents

Our last Social Studies unit for the year, MarketPlace – Is it Fair, has been a huge success.  The class economy was a hit and now it is time to wrap it all up.

To end this unit, we will be having a giant auction on Wednesday, June 5th during our Social Studies learning time. Your child has been asked to make sure they have your permission before they bring any items for the giant auction.

If you would like to donate “in good condition” toys, games and/or books for our Auction, that would be most appreciated.  Students will also have the opportunity to donate their “MarketPlace stock leftovers” to the auction as well as the classroom teacher providing a few “mystery” envelopes for auction as well.

Roll of the Dice Collaborative Poem

Everyone contributes one line to the class poem

A roll of the die determines what has to be included in everyone’s line

Here’s what we rolled ….. each line for the poem must include …..

  • a superhero
  • must start with “I wish …. “
  • a colour
  • name of a city or country

The lines are handed in anonymously, “shuffled” and hey presto – a poem is made!

I Wish – by Room 207 

I wish Superman flew to India and bought a purple dog
I wish Ironman in a blue suit would glue me to a plane in Timbuktu
I wish that Spiderman would rescue me with a blue clear web and zip me off to Los Angeles
I wish I was Spiderwoman, instead of throwing webs, I could change grey concrete cities like Manila into green jungles of bushes and trees

I wish that Superman would come to my house with a green cape and fly my family and I to San Deigo
I wish Batman would save me from Catwoman, the Purple Cat, and drive me in the batcar to France
I wish that my batman costume was yellow and from the UK
I wish Wonderwoman would save me in a violet van and take me to Russia

I wish Superman drove me to New Delhi in a red Ferrari
I wish Superman would take me in an orange helicopter to America
I wish Superman saved me in a red car in Japan
I wish Spiderman would help me in a blue car in Korea

I wish Batman went to Japan with me in a black car
I wish Superman would lend me three pink dresses from France
I wish a superhero that has brown skin saved me in Bangkok
I wish Spiderman could give me his red costume in Shanghai

I wish I had Hulk as my big, strong, green bodyguard while I was in Kansas City
I wish I was a superhero wearing blue and red costumes lurking around New York
