It was a warm and sunny day when I got to school. Like always my mom
said, “Have a good day at school!” then I left the car and walked to
class. Today when I got there a classmate, Sheyenne, had a bee on is
back. He was not afraid and didn’t run. Instead he went to the
teacher and asked him to hit it off. The teacher did and we went
The first thing we did on the agenda was D.M.A. which stands for
daily morning activities. In D.M.A today we did two language
sentences which we had to fix, two analogies, and my personal
favorite, geography. Today’s analogies were the hardest I ever had
but I managed to do it with the dictionary. For example, one of the
analogies were moccasin : beret :: foot : _____ and we had to find
out the missing word. The answer was head, because a moccasin is
something Native Americans would wear, a beret is a Mexican type of
hat for a woman, and we all know what a foot is. The answer was
head. It is this because a beret goes on the head and a moccasin is
something you wear on your foot. Our geography question for today
was, What state borders Georgia? We had to figure this out buy
looking in our S.S book, (Social Studies). Today’s teacher was
The second thing on the agenda was states and capitals. Today in
states and capitals we just corrected homework. But we did it funny,
since this was a word scramble, Mr. Coley actually said the
scrambled words. Like if it was ahduvnsd he would pronounce it.
After this we did states and capitals flash card game. Where one
person would say for example, I have Texas who has the capital of
New York? Then someone would say I have Albany who has the capital
of blank, and it would go on until it went to the person it started
In reading today we read A Dangerous Day which was basically
a one page story about a woman working as a nurse In the union army.
Her name was Margret. When her brothers shoulder is twisted out of
its socket Margret must fire the cannon while her brothers wounds
are being treated. After reading the paragraph we did our cause and
effect work page, here is an example sentence. Cause: James (her
brother) shoulder was twisted out of its socket. Effect: Margret let
him go get bandages and she fired the cannon. After this we did a
work page on grammar. In today’s lesson, we had to divide words into
syllables. For example, dragonfly. It would be divided like Dra.
Gon. Fly. The periods stand for the slash you would see. Another
lesson was with verbs. We had to choose the correct verb in put it
into the sentence. Here is an example. Larry ____ his class about
science. It would ask us if we should put learned, or teaches.
After that we did social studies. In social studies we did a quick
15 minute lesson learning how colonist were getting mad because they
were paying taxes that they didn’t get to vote for. Their phrase
was, “No taxation without representation!” Mr. Coley told us this is
a big reason the Revolutionary War started.
After reading we went to recess where I played with my three best
friends, Johnny, Connor, and Matthew in Mr. Henning’s class. Today
we played wall ball. When we got back from recess we went to math.
Today in math we learned about quadrilaterals, triangles, and how to
measure them. Then we did four pages in our homework book and did
some review for candy. After this we left and went to lunch.
After lunch we did Science. Today in science we took a test on
earth’s weather. It was a 25 question quiz, which is four percent
for each question wrong. After we finished we silently read or did
After science Mr. Coley talked to us about our field trip on Monday
and what to do for the next couple days since he would be gone.
After this he announced the Quiet Seat, Alex S, and let his table
leave to go home first and said, “The rest of you may go and have a
wonderful rest of the day!”
