I woke up at around 6:45 to 7:00. The first thing I did was go to
the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face. After that, I got
my clothes out for school, got dressed at 7:30, and ate oatmeal for
breakfast. I got to school at 8:00 A.M and when I got there I played
basketball on the big courts. My friends made team captain, so I was
in charge of picking the teams. The score of the game was 10 to 6.
We only had about 10 or 15 minutes to play. At 8:20 the bell rang,
my classmates and I sat down until Mr. Coley opened the door. Mr.
Coley opened the door and we got our homework out, and then, we
moved into D.M.A.
In D.M.A we learned about the Navajo Indians. We had two sentences
about Donna and Brice talking about the Navajo Indians. The first
sentence Donna said,Ē Brice, I must have misunderstood you.Ē The
second sentence was, Then she added, ďWerenít the Navajos the best
weavers of all. There were lots of mistakes in those sentences when
we did them at school. Next we moved into the analogies. Our first
analogy was huge : _____ :: vast : tiny. Huge
and vast go together and blank and tin go together. The answer to
this analogy was wee which means tiny or microscopic and some other
words that mean the same as tiny. Our next analogy was diskette :
_____ :: record : phonograph. The analogies that go together are
diskette which means a floppy disk and the blank and record and
phonograph which means a record player. The answer to this analogy
was computer. I got both wrong because the first one I put small,
but tiny is smaller than small and for the second one I put VCR.
Moving on to geography. In geography our question was how tall is
Californiaís Mt. Whitney. My answer was 14,495. My answer was
correct. Once that was done we moved into spelling.
In spelling we did a word scramble. I love when we do word scrambles
because Mr. Coley read them funny. Some of the words sound French.
But before we did spelling we checked in our home work. Our homework
was of course the word scramble, our math, and lots of signed tests.
When we finished we played a game called Define it. In this game you
need to have a clear dice that you can see threw. You need it clear
because thereís a smaller dice inside the clear one. Then the dice
rolls a number and we have to define the vocabulary word. Some rows
are bonus rows. For example if there were two bonus rows I would
pick the 30s and the 60s. If you roll the dice in any 30 or 60 row
you double the points. In our class we have three tables, so we have
three sets of table points. The score right now is 26 to 26 to 23.
My table is losing. After that we moved into writing.
In writing were writing an essay. The essay is called a persuasive
essay. Persuade means to convince the person reading. What were
trying to persuade is if dogs or cats are the better pet. I think
that dogs are the better pet. Today we started are graphic organizer
which is putting notes on the graphic organizer, then put them into
words in your essay. After writing Mr. Coley gave us some free time
to do our homework. I finished my Lit. Circles job. My job was
correspondent which is like writing a letter to someone else. The
next thing I was going to do was practice three times each, but I
realized that I didnít have to do that because Iím Roving Reporter.
So basically I finished all my homework. When that was over we
finished our Coley Casts.
Since we were done with our Coley Casts we listened to some of it.
We didnít get to finish because it was 25minutes and recess was in
about 15 minutes. At 11:15 we went to recess.
In recess we played basketball. We tried making long long 3s. Ethan,
one of my friends, was the only one to make the 3. After recess at
around11:35 we did Open house preparation.
We did the open house preparation because open house was tonight. We
took out our state presentation boards, our Lion, The Witch, and The
Wardrobe story maps, our parent essays, and our Fortunately and
unfortunately poems. It was fun. We also cleaned out our desks.
After we did that we had lunch.
At lunch I decided to do something new except play basketball. I
played on the playground. We were all going down the slide fast. I
was so fun I didnít want it to end. After lunch we had some 1st,
3rd, and 2nd graders
see our boards. It was like a practice because we were getting ready
for open house. The classes that came in were Mrs. Molino, Mrs.
Woodcock, and Mr. Fanning. I new lots of the students
