An Invitation to Our Party

Hi Mr. Little Birdie,   We want to invite you to our end-of -the-school year party on Thursday,
June 18 in room 101, from 10:ooam to 11:30pm.  We hope you can come, and you don't have to let us know, just come!  We're going to have a surprise D.J. and singer, and great music and dancing.
Of course, there will be excellent ethnic food from many countries, no alcohol, but coffee, tea,
and other drinks.  It should be a great way to end this school year. 
We're looking forward to our field trip on Wednesday, and heard that you're going on Monday
and may send us some pictures and recommend what to see.  Have a great time!
Don't worry, be happy ( remember that song by Bobby Mcferrin?)
Love from your 24/7 am class.

We Miss You Extremely!

Hi Mr. 911, We are having an emergency. Can you help us? We want to plan an end of the year party at school. Can you come to join us? We will write an emergency story for you to read.
We finished our CASAS tests yesterday, and some students need to go back to room 102, including Pedro. He is still sitting in the back of the room, by the door, waiting for you to visit
us, and it is so cool by the fan. Please give us a surprise soon!!!

Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy a BBQ, go to the beach with Ceda (your dog), and spend some
money to help the economy. We miss you and love you,
Room 101am, 24/7 class

We Continue To Miss You!

Hi Richard, How are you today? Every Friday we like to check in with you. Are you enjoying the sunshine and very hot weather? We're trying to keep cool by turning the lights off ("sit down") and saving energy to the school. That way we can have summer school here. Today we got a new student, Javier Gonzalez, who worked at Piedmont Grocery and now at Baja Ta-
queria on Piedmont Ave. Come by for a complementary super burrito and maybe a margarita (not a new student). You missed the special Ferrero chocolate treat that we had today. Everyone liked it very much, and Pedro ate three, and one is white paper chocolate, made by Yun Ping.
Pedro tried to eat it, but opened it instead. Pedro said, " It's hard to swallow!" Swallow was one of our spelling words this week. So, Pedro started to choke and Ella gave him 5 abdomen thrusts,
and he started to feel better. And Yun Ping started to call 911. No emergency today, but we had lots of fun.

We miss you a lot!!! Love from your 24/7 am class

Greetings from Berkeley

You guys are funny!

Of course, I think of you all the time, but today the Room 101 Morning Students earned "extra credit" in my thoughts.

I had just ordered a super burrito when, as I watched the guy behind the counter splash guacamole onto my carne asada and beans, I thought of your guacamole party post on the blog. In the photo I could clearly see that Pedro was "cutting up" in class again.

A "special shout out" to Kai Yan! He knows how to make me feel better with not one but - count 'em - two posts on the blog - - with photos! Thanks, buddy!

We still miss you!!!

Hi Richard, How do you feel? We hope you feel better. Prosperity showed up to class today
like a new moon. He's going back to the Big Apple to try life over again, a new beginning. Don't
forget to celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday. Try to go to church with your Mom, even though you said you'll never go. We had another fire drill today to practice, in case there's a real one. Now
we've had two fire drills while you've been gone.
Don't forget to take your dog for a walk! Is the dog your daughter or girlfriend? Please let us know. BTW, Kathleen says" I miss you everyday." We hope that we see you at the class trip.
It's happening! Much love from your 24/7 am class.

Three Wheels Motorcycle

Generally, motorcycles are more save gas than the auto cars. But motorcycles are more dangerous. I thought that if there are manufacturers produce three or four wheels motorcycles, it would be the good things for saving energy.
Yesterday, a peculiar car attracted my sight. It was parked on International Boulevard near our school. When I approached it, I almost made sure that it was a three wheels motorcycle. I was afraid of losing this nice opportunity; I took some pictures of it immediately.
I hope that this motorcycle will be developed to be other kind of saving energy transportation.

We Enjoyed Guacamole, Mexican Food

Yesterday, teacher Linda introduced Mexican food, Guacamole, and its recipe to us. She brought all of materials and tools to the class.
Our chef Pedro and Chef Ella made Guacamole as teacher’s guide. Classmates stood around our chefs waiting for a taste. Several minutes later, our classmates had tasted delicious Guacamole.
Thanks for Linda, Pedro and Ella.

Slope Mower

In spring, the Plants, flowers and grasses grow up fast. Especially the grasses grow up faster than the other plants. Usually people will cut the grasses short in their front yard or back yard with a mower every week. They cut the grasses for good looking.

I have had a question in my mind for a long time. I know that many residences are built on the top of slope and the grasses grow on the slope. My question is that how the residents or workers cut the grasses with an ordinary mower on the slope. Although people could let the grasses grow up freely, the grasses will dry out in summer. It is very dangerous to the residents because the dry grasses catch fire easily.

One day, I saw a scene. It solved my question. A flock of sheep were eating grasses on the slope. These slope mowers were not only needed not gas or electricity but also environmental protection.

We Miss You!

Hi Richard, How are you feeling? We miss you very much. " Don't forget to turn on the computer,"
Pedro said. "Do you eat more food now?" said Kai Yan. "We hope we can see you at the class
trip." said Ayako. "Don't be scared to come to the class. I don't have the swine flu." said Pedro
because he hasn't gone to Mexico yet. "If you want some exercise, come to my backyard" said
Ella. "We hope you feel better soon" said Ling. " I came to class early everyday to see you to
say good morning, and I don't want you to say good afternoon to me":) said Yun Ping. We love
you wonderful class. Don't teach too much English to your dog! We all love you and need you.
Your 24/7 class in the morning
