3. Boys vs. Girls Contest
a. What all do you need to do before 2:30pm, March 31st?
b. How did you contribute toward your gender while preparing for your performance?
c. If you could go back and change anything, what would it be and why?
d. How will your gender be successful tomorrow?


  1. Boys Vs. Girls:
    a. Well, I'm not part of the singing but I really hope that the boys are prepared for the big show tomorrow.
    b. I gave them support and exerted their effort.
    c. I would go back and tell all of the boys to focus and remind them more.
    d. We will be successful by bonding more, if we don't win, I think we will still be happy because it was a great bonding experience for us

    1. GREAT SUPPORT! Be our cheerer in the audience! Great answers!

    2. I really want to quit too but theres no point if tomorrow is the last performance.

  2. I hope that was it. There weren't any questions in 1 or 2.

  3. I know you're going to cheer on your squad, Buggieboy.

  4. a we need to get costumes ready
    b I tried to help them out
    c I would change the positions, because Alex and I want to be on the floor but everyone said "no"
    d everyone will do their job right and we will be a big success

  5. Girls vs Boys
    a. I think we need to finish off all of the minor choreography.

    b. I shared my ideas and me and Mallorie made the costumes.

    c. I would change the way we share and discuss our ideas because when ever we tried to share we would always talk over each other and we sometimes we don’t listen to each other.

    d. think we will success tomorrow because we will work hard and do our best!!!

  6. #1. I think we just have to get everything smooth for the performance.
    #2. The group and I all had ideas that were in the performance.
    #3. I agree with Zara that we should listen to each other more.
    #4. I not sure if we will win, but either way I think we already have gotten a big prize!

  7. Boys VS Girls
    1. We need costumes, more choreography, and louder singing.
    2. I offered ideas.
    3. I like it the way it is.
    4. We will use teamwork.

  8. Boys Vs Girls
    1. Costumes,volume and some more fine tuning on the choreography
    2. I helped plan most of the costumes, I am one of the louder singers, I helped set stuff up, I offered ideas, and Leo and I worked everything out that has to do with instruments.
    3. Planning the costumes sooner and cooperating better as a team
    4. We will and have bonded and we will do a great job and hopefully win the whole Boys VS Girls contest

    1. Interesting......I never thought of that!

  9. Boys vs. Girls:
    1. The boys need to be prepared with the song, and have their costume on. The song need to be polished for the big performance.
    2. I contributed because I was there for the practices, and I helped figure out choreography, and moves. I gave ideas, and helped solve problems.
    3. I would change how the boys used our practice time, and not arguing as much. Getting everything organized and planning things sooner would also be another one.
    4. We will have worked hard, and worked hard as a team. Also we know that we put in much effort, and tried. To know how much we cared, and how much thought we put into the performance. I also hope we win!

    1. WE FOUGHT TOO!!!!!!!!! At least you guys don't have to deal with a bossy control freak (me) that everyone hates!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. I'd like to make a point Gigi that you are sort of correct, besides the hate part. :D

  10. Boys vs Girls

    a) We need to just go over the plan. I SENT YOU THE PLAN!!! PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    b) I didn't. I took over everyones job (being the control freak I am.) Now if you are a girl, you either hate me, don't like the plan, or want to quit.
    c) Maybe next time we should appoint a leader. I VOTE FIFI!!!!! She is good at leading us without people fighting.
    d) I don't know if we will win (probably not) but either way, we didn't bond at all. The only thing we did was fight. I love doing this, but maybe we should have smaller groups because it is hard to get everyone on the same page without making them hate you.

    1. Honestly, it can go both ways with who will win. Gigi, I think the girls get the idea that you sent them an email. (: Thoughtful answers!

    2. I'd agree MC, I think we get it.

  11. 1. Practice and make sure we all are prepared and the choreography is correct.
    2. I asked questions and did some of the choreography.
    3. How we did our ideas.
    4. We worked together sort of and had great ideas.

  12. 1. Timing, we need to make sure everyone knows the timings for each move.
    2. I came to every practice.
    3.MORE TIME and everyone coming to ALL OF THE PRACTICES. For a few weeks some kids went off to play on the blacktop and made up a silly excuse.
    4.I think that we will know all of or movements, but our movements are pretty simple. Also I think that we have a slight chance of winning.

  13. 1. We just have to perfect everything and make sure everyone knows what they are doing.

    2. I was trying to give ideas but everyone else was arguing during the practices. At least we managed to make it through the whole thing today.

    3. I would like it if nobody would try to take leadership of all the girls and be a captain because nobody has voted for one and it's just totally unfair. I'd also like it if we wouldn't be arguing while practicing because we won't get anywhere if we do. I also thought of this: some people suggested that we don't copy the exact lyrics that happen during Frederick Follies practice and all we are doing for this is just copying lyrics which seems unfair.

    4. We came up with a really good routine that we will perform for the rest of the class.

  14. 1. Boys remember costume, know the song and Charlie know your moves
    2. I help decide on costume
    3. Go back and remind all the boys to wear the secret costume
    4. Knowing the song and wearing their costume

  15. I think that the boys should know the lyrics and come prepared.

    I contributed to our gender by taking notes and helping out everyone who is confused about where everyone's going and where everyone not going.

    I think that we could have practiced a little more.

    You will be successful if everyone remembers their costumes and lyrics.

  16. 3. Boys vs. Girls Contest
    a. What all do you need to do before 2:30pm, March 31st?
    Set out my costume. Email, with girls.
    b. How did you contribute toward your gender while preparing for your performance?
    Know the choreography.
    c. If you could go back and change anything, what would it be and why?
    Less fighting a the beginning, and more organization.
    d. How will your gender be successful tomorrow?
    We will work together.

  17. 1.We could always go to the practice.
    2.We could really pay attention .
    3.I agree with Zara we pay attention
    4. We have to learn the lyrics we could remember to bring there coustumes.
