End of the Year, by Seth

June 11, 2007

This is urgent and impossible!!!! This is the last 3 and a half days of school!!! ERROR!!! ERROR!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man!! I can’t believe it, this is the last 3 and a half days of school! I’m coming summer!!! Well, I’ll tell you about what happened today; we got fifteen drawings for making it over the red line in the marble jar!!!! We did a math Quick Review and a math Mixed Review to start things off.

Later after snack recess, we read a poem called Prophecy in Flame in Our Open Court Reading book. Then we reviewed the vocabulary words which are plodding, parched, sturdy, jolted, and sentries. Mr. Kootman gave us plenty of time to do our vocabulary logs (definitions, synonyms, pictures and parts of speech) and our clues chart and as I said on January 29th , which was my last blog. For my clues chart I traced my hand like a gorilla’s hand. We read a book after lunch that was a tall tale. John Henry was the title and it was given the Caldecott picture-book award! You know the story about the man who used two iron hammers to plow through a mountain and beat a machine to the center of the mountain? Oh well, I only had heard of that book when I was 5 anyways and just today.

We did some social studies in our social studies book. In social studies, we read about the entertainment companies in Hollywood and other places in California. Later we finished our cityscapes. One side of the picture is strait, and the other is curvy and twisted. This art project was supposed to show how different colors and lines change the viewers idea of the picture. To wrap our day up, we went out to P.E to play basketball and then went home.
