Today in room 40 we hade an auction!!!!!! I did not win anything at the auction. We had two students that moved. Don’t want to say names but it is Jake that is moving to Japan. And Chase is moving to Virginia.

Today we started off by doing our morning work. For our morning work, we did Tuesday’s lesson for review. Our lesson for today was how to subtract like fractions. It was so much fun; to some students it was easy. We went to recess. We hade 5 minutes took in from our recess because we had to go back outside because we were too loud. When we came back from recess, we started to read “Pocahontas”.

After that we talked about how Pocahontas may have lived her life. We went to lunch and when we got back, we were stuck to find out that we are going to .Well you are probably wondering what we are about to do ,we are going to make a portrait of Pocahontas. The thing about making the picture is that we are going to make the picture out of words!!! After we finished doing the picture we had a gallery walk to look at each others pictures. WE HAD A BLASTTTT!!!! Then we read our class chapter book.

The name of our class chapter book is The Orphan Run Away, this chapter was so good. The chapter was called The Epidemic At Home. The epidemic is a disease that kills many people. Well back to the story, there is this two boys, there brothers. Their names are Dannie, and Judd. They used to be orphans but they ran away. Now they live with their uncle and new aunt. The young boy Judd was at school and he all of a sudden got pneumonia. Dannie got really worried so he grabbed Judd up and took him home. Luckily their uncle married a Chinese woman, that’s good at heeling. You have to read the book to find out the rest.

Finally we went to P.E where we played freeze tag. We had a lot to do today. Well I’m finally done.

Today Mr. Kootman was crazy about telegraphs! All he could say was “beep, beep, beep, beeeeep.”

In the morning, Mr. Kootman gave us work on the whiteboard, but this time instead of him giving us one mixed review and one quick review, he gave us two mixed reviews and quick reviews. After we were done checking our work, Mr. Kootman taught the class Chapter 18 lesson 2 in math. We learned how to subtract like fractions. Subtracting like fractions is just like when you subtract regular numbers, but sometimes you can reduce it. Then, the class worked on their math packets. Once we finished, Mr. Kootman told us to read our new Open Court story book “Pocahontas”, because we owed 5 minutes of recess. After our five minute punishment was up everyone ran out the door like a group of rhinos trying to get to recess.

After recess, Mr. Kootman read us the story “Pocahontas”. Did you know that Mr. Kootman has never seen the movie of “Pocahontas”! When that was over, the class had to work on bullets. Bullets are questions that we have to answer from the story. Next, Mr. Kootman threw some vocab words at the class. (Well not literally).This may sound like the day went quickly but then…….It was lunch! I told you the day went quickly!

After lunch, Mr. Kootman read two chapters of our class book, Orphan Runaways. The two chapters were called Home and Epidemic. The chapter Epidemic was about a strange disease spreading all over the city! So two little kids had to keep themselves warm. A couple minutes later, the class took out their C.L.A.S book. C.L.A.S stands for Comprehension and Language Arts Skills. I was so happy what was coming up next. An auction, yeah! After doing a couple of auctions we went out to P.E! Wasn’t today a good day? I thought it was, don’t you?
