First Week of School Revisited- Sept 5- by Reina

Guess what? Today we had our first math test! But before the test Mr. Kootman let us do some mixed review on the test. He wants us to achieve,not fail like some teachers nowadays. Since he let us do the mixed review, I think we did pretty darn good. The mixed review and the test was on benchmarks, place value and pictographs.

After math we did reading. In reading we read Toto. Toto is about an elephant who gets caught in a snare and a African boy who frees him. Next the class answered questions about Toto and did vocabulary that was in Toto. Afterwards we did a class blog on the projector. Here is how the class blog worked: the class gave some ideas and Mr.Kootman typed. Mr. Kootman is a good typer!

At 12:45pm we went to lunch. I brought lunch that day. As usual the cafeteria was loud. Once lunch was done we read our chapter book, The School Story. In that part of the story Natalie (the main character) and Zoe (Natalie's friend) are researching about how to get Natalie's book published. Natalie went to her mom's office and learned about the slush pile. To close up our day we did Social Studies. In S.S. we did vocab words (hemisphere,tropics and climate) with a game. Mr. Kootman would click on the projector while we had our eyes closed and it would say the meaning of the word, then we would click on the word we thought it was. Afterwards we packed our bags and flew out the door to go home!

Good eyes Mattison! Actually, Reina did put the book's title in italics, but when I copied it to the blog, they went away. So it's actually, my fault, not Reina's. I just went back and fixed it though. Reina, good job remembering and Mattison, you'll make a great editor!
Mr. Kootman
