We started the day with a math page on division and averaging. That was sort of a warm up for the test later that was on the same thing. We couldn't finish the test all in one though, we had to split it up between our assembly. The test seemed very long compared to any other math test we took.
After our math page we did two pages on hyphenated compound words. We learned how you would say them with out them being compound at all. The meanings had to be small but detailed, for example a goldfish is a fish that is gold.
At 9:45 we had an assembly. A band named the Crew came to our school. During the assembly they played music on trash cans and brooms. They did a really cool performance while drumming on a metal pole and a metal can.They also played games with us. There was a basketball game on who could get more hoops. If the boys won, the girls would have to do the chicken dance. If the girls won, which they did, the boys would have to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. They told us to be drug free too.
Lunch was good because of pizza. Every body likes pizza so that made us happy. After a great lunch, we went out for recess. The grass was muddy and slippery. If you ran on it you would find yourself slipping in mud.
After recess it was time for social studies. We had a video based on a quiz. After we saw the video we realized that it was the wrong one. We just had to assume most the were right and wrong. Some answers were given though.
Our class chapter book is called; The Good Dog. The author of this book is Avi. Right now McKinley knows that Lupin the wolf's pack is dying out. Even Lupin herself is injured. So McKinley explained that to the other dogs. One dog named Redburn was the cause of this trouble. It started when a mistreated dog named Dutchess wanted to be free. Redburn tracked her down, putting her back into her old life. Dutchess was staying with the wolf which made the humans hunt her. The dogs thought of Redburn poorly now. That was how the book ended.
Before we went home we had HOT time. HOT time is when you get to play outside if you finish your work. When the kids in our class went out we had to go in and watch a movie because it rained. Then we went home.
