I got to school at 8 o’clock. It was a little cold but sunny. I went to the benches and talked to my friends. Then Mr. Eddy let us out. I played basketball until the bell rang. It was Friday, so Mr. Coley took us out to Friday Flag.
At Friday Flag they did PTA, then they did Shark Bites. The kids that got called for Shark Bites got to go pick a prize in the office. Mr. Fanning ended Friday Flag with a song about character. It was about Trustworthiness. It was a cool song.
After that, we came in and started Spelling. We had a test. Mr. Coley gave us twenty regular words and five challenge words. They were not too easy and not too hard.
When we were done with Spelling, we moved on to Social Studies. We are learning about how Cortez took over Tenochtitlan. When the Aztecs were defeated Cortez burned it down. The temples and the books were burned.
Then it was time for Science. We are learning about plants. Some have tubes and some don’t. For example, trees have tubes, but moss doesn’t. It absorbs stuff that is dead. Did you know that grass has tubes? When you pick grass look at the bottom and you can see it on the stem.
When we were done with Science, we went to Math. Mrs. Becker is making us practice for the ‘Empire State Building’. We have to finish in less than two minutes. It took me a few tries but I finished with a time of 1:51. I was so happy that I finished in time!
After Math, it was time for lunch. I had pizza and I sat with my friends. We told jokes. When we were done eating, we went and played football. It was a fun time! Then the bell rang and it was time to go back to class.
When we got back to class, it was time for SSR. SSR stands for Super Silent Reading. Mr. Coley is reading a book called Among the Imposter. It is really fun to read! But first read the first book, then read the second book.
Next, we talked about the Weekly Homophone Challenge. Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. The answer was bear and bare.
Next it was time to play Deal or No Deal. Jenny was playing and she chose case number 17. She wanted the number 1,000,000 so she could have 100 pieces of licorice. Case 17 only had 1,000, which equals 1 piece.
After that, the school day was over. We all said “Goodbye” and then we went home.
