It was a sunny morning when I came to school. I talked to my friend, and went to go wait outside of the classroom for the bell to ring. I talked to some of my friends in Ms. Wood’s class by the classrooms, we heard the bell rang then we went back to our classroom to line up. Mr. Coley came and we went inside. We took our homework out and our journals. After we were done with D.M.A, we corrected it. As usual there were 2 sentences, 2 analogies problems, and 1 geography question. The geography question for today was, “Which state is farther north, Colorado or Georgia?” The answer was Colorado.

The table I sit at, which we called Hawaii, turned in our journals. The next thing on our agenda was spelling. We corrected last night’s homework which was a spelling crossword worksheet. After that was done, we did the next thing on our agenda.

After spelling, it was time for reading! We listened and followed along to Earthquake Terror on a CD. Then Mr. Coley taught us the 4 kinds of sentences, declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, and imperative sentences. He told us to take out your white board makers (or marker) and eraser. We were going to practice if the sentence is either, declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, or imperative. Mr. Coley shows us a sentence, if it is declarative we would write D, interrogative we would write Int, exclamatory we would write E, and for imperative we would write Imp. Then we did a practice book page, page 13, it was practice page for the 4 kinds of sentences.

Next, we did social studies. We corrected last night’s social studies homework, “Land and States.” Mr. Coley talked about latitude and longitude. He went to Google earth and at the bottom of the screen was the latitude and longitude.

After recess, we did some math. We went over the target number from two nights ago. Target number involves math in it. You need a die for the numbers, and use dice for the target number. You need to use the 5 numbers to get to the target number; you could use adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. You must use all 5 numbers. When we went over target number some of the students had mistakes in them.

After that, we did an activity called “Silly Sentences”, silly sentences have parts of speech including, articles, adjectives, nouns, adverbs, verbs, and prepositional phrases. The class brain stormed adjectives, nouns, adverbs, and prepositional phrases. Then we picked 6 people, Mr. Coley chooses one of them to pick one of the article, adjective, nouns, adverbs, verbs, and prepositional phrase. Mr. Coley reads the sentence and sees how it turns out. For an example, The stinky, freaky, ice cream cone snored on top of the toilet.

Once that was done, we had some time left and Mr. Coley read more of Among the Hidden. In Among the Hidden, the girl said she was a third child too, like Luke was. She told Luke that her name was Jen. They talked and had something to eat. Mr. Coley stopped and the students again said “Nooooo, keep reading.”, but it was lunch so we had to stop.

After lunch we silently read by ourselves. We read for about 25 minutes. Then Mr. Coley said “Put your books away.” We did as we were told and Mr. Coley took out Among the Hidden.

When that was over, the agenda said that science was up next but Mr. Coley read more of the book, Among the Hidden. In the story, Luke and Jen we discussing what should be the signal. Then Luke had to go home and noticed blood on the carpet, and then Jen cut her hand and squeezed out three drops of blood onto the carpet so her parents would know where the blood came from.

After that the bell rang and it was time to go home and do our homework.  Everyone went home either by walking or by having their parents pick them up. When I got home I typed up this report for everyone to read.
