I hope everyone had/ is having a happy holiday and an enjoyable vacation. I thought it might be neat if we posted a few comments about what we are doing during our break. You can leave a comment the same way we usually do (respond to this post).
I'll start: I went back to New Jersey for a week and hung out with my family. We took the train into NYC (what does that stand for?) and saw a great show called "Blue Man Group." My brother even got to be in the show! Here is a very blurry photo of me and a "blue man." It was very dark and the camera wasn't working very well, but I'm the one without the blue face.
Next we did a quick write on Salt. We had recess, and when we came back we finished our test. Then we had lunch. For lunch we had cheese pizza. After that, we read The Landry News. The Landry News is what Mr.Kootman reads after lunch. It is about a girl making up a news paper.
In science, we learned about fossils and Mr.Kootman brought out some fossils and we used a magnifying glass so we can see it better. Then we played handball in the handball courts for P.E. Now you have experienced a super fantastic day in the life of room 40.
Today, for the first time ever, we played handball for P.E.! The first thing we did today was a quick review in math. After that we took the chapter eleven math test. Half of the class thought it was hard and half the class thought it was easy. When that was over we read “Salt” for the second time in our open court book.
Then the class did a quick write on the story Salt. At 10:30 we went to recess. When we came in, Mr. Kootman gave us some time to get our work finished. When free time was over, we took notes about fossils in science. This took up a lot of our time.
We went to lunch at 12:20, after Science. For lunch we had a choice of cheese pizza or pepperoni pizza. Once lunch was over we had a fifteen minute recess. When we came in Mr. Kootman read the class a chapter of The Landry News. After The Landry News, we took more notes in Science. Finally, we had P.E. and then went home.
Then we went to Math! Next in math we went on a new chapter. (11 Understand Multiplication) Afterwards we went to Yoga like usual did all the poses that Ms. Swanlund. But today we got in trouble because some people were talking during yoga.
When we got back we went in to reading mode! This time we had to read on a C D. The story is Business is Looking Up. Guess what; it was 14 pages long! Then we went to lunch. Afterwards it was time to be reading The Landry News chapter 14. After we read it, it was time for chapter 15 Ref Makes Tough Call! Oh yea, we had a game where some one had to pick up a piece of paper and the student who picked it up got the got a prize!
When all of us were done, we went to lunch. They served chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. Afterwards, we came inside and read the Landry News. The chapter we were on is “Ref Makes Tough Call”. We had a fantastic day!!!
30 minutes later we went to lunch. For lunch we had pizza. Then we went back to the class. But when we got in the class we had to go back to the black top because we had a fire drill. Finally, we came back and got ready to go to H.O.T. time and go home. And that was our magnificent day!!!!!
Next came recess where a lot of people played handball. When that was over, we shared our Flow charts. Once we finished, at 12:20, we went to lunch. And finally Mr.Kootman read The Landy News. And that was our enjoyable Wendsday.
