Have you been to the Marine Corps birthday celebration? We have. We started off our day doing A through I on our new math Excel worksheet. Megan and I were the first ones done.Then we moved to our math book where we learned to multiply three factors. It wasn't very hard for most of us. We didn't finish the entire lesson before Mrs. Cecil walked in and told us that recess was going to be at 9:15. A few minutes later, all of us got our snacks out. Some of us were still full from breakfast, so we weren't ready just yet. A number of us didn't get to eat all of our snacks because Mr. Kootman said it was field trip time.


As soon as room 40 was loaded and ready to leave with another class the bus took off. We were on our way to the soccer field,where the birthday celebration took place. It wasn't long before the bus stopped and almost all of the fourth grade classes started swarming towards the booth. Almost half the class nearly lost the other half until we noticed it was right behind us. Mr.K got us seated and we waited for a while. Then a person on a microphone asked us to stand for the Marine Corps song. We remained standing for a few other things.While they were talking we were actually also learning about how the uniforms changed over the years and about our nation's proud history. A lot of us thought it was just a speech you know with out presents. But we were proved wrong when a small little carrier car drove out on to the field carrying the biggest cake I have ever seen. None of us got a piece and we didn't think we would.The cake was cut with a sword. I guess just to seem more military like.We saw them serve two pieces of cake to the general and some one else. A boy said he wanted to be a general just to get a piece of that big cake.


Shortly after the cake was served we left for school again.It seemed like we were going in circles over and over again just to get out of traffic, if there was any.Some of us got a little frustrated with the driver. Soon we got back to school and finished our snacks.Surprisingly, we got back about half an hour before lunch.I bet a number of us thought it was going to be an all day field trip.A half an hour later we all went to lunch.

When we got back from lunch we read our class chapter book,Worth.In this chapter Nathaniel hears about how the two families that fight alot blame each other for tragedies that most likely were coincidental. Next we read Wells and William G. Fargo. Finally we wraped up our day playing kick ball basketball and went home.

Samantha,
You worked very hard on that posting. You did a great job of summarizing our major activities and most of all, you showed a very high quality "voice." I felt like I could really tell what you experienced. You should be very proud of your hard work!
Mr. Kootman
