Today was an exciting day because we read an emotional book. First we did our morning work, but we were really loud so we didn’t get many marbles. We learned that we have to multiply the perimeter by two to double it and you multiply the area by two to quadruple it. The problem solving strategy is easy for me. All you have to do is find a pattern. After that we did math again to learn it better and make sure it stays in your brain.

For reading we did a vocabulary log. When you do this you use all of your vocabulary words and write the definition, a picture and a sentence or an example. We also did a clues chart. A clues chart is where you put the authors name, the genre, title, key vocabulary, picture clues and what the story could be about. The story we read this week was Koko’s Kitten.

Lunch was really loud, the ladies had to stand up front of the cafeteria and tell us to be quiet. So we lost about five or ten minutes recess. After that everybody started to be quiet, but it did not last long.

After lunch and recess we came in and got out our class chapter book. I warn you this is a sad chapter. Karana is happy that the Aleuts never came to the island again. However, she is sad because her dog Rontu died. I felt sad, but was not shocked because I had read the book before. Then we showed pictures of Karana’s skirt that we created.

In social studies, we showed some of the mission projects. All of the projects were good I think. We learned why so many people wanted to come to California. One of the reasons is that they just wanted to explore and have their own land.

The ladys always have to tell us to be quiet. Because of that we can't get any snacks. It would be nice if the kids would be quiet so we longer recess, kids talk very loud including me. Its sad that Rontu died. Keep up the good work.
