My class couldn't believe it! This morning when everyone went to go inside the bells didn't ring, the class still thought it was time to play. The bells have already been off for a week. Ms. Betty, a teacher that watches us so we don't get hurt, blew her whistle to let us know it was time to go in but, not everyone heard the whistle, some people were talking to their friends and some people were playing with their footballs instead of lining up.
After we got in, we did our morning math review and it was about estimating quotients and the quotient to a division problem which is your answer,but not everyone finished in time. Some people were playing but most people finished and people who didn't finish in class have to do it outside for recess. The people that didn't finish didn't think that was fun at all. Everyone had to get ready for our test on Thursday.
Afterwards, we read a story called "Shadow of a Bull", it's a story about El Magifico, he was Spain's most famous bullfighter and he died and he had a son and everyone wanted him to be a bullfighter like his dad. But he wanted to be a doctor. Maia Wojciechowska the author of this book had 72 jobs in one year. Some of the jobs were bullfighting, and race car driving. She was born in Europe.
In yoga we were doing a lot of exercises like the shoulder stand, push-ups,and crunches. After lunch our teacher, Mr. Kootman, read us a story called The Good Dog and it's about a dog named Dutchess, who met a wolf. Dutchess's friend McKinley tries to help her out of trouble and the wolf gets shot. Last, we did Social Studies, and we learned that there are 21 mission's in California. I really enjoyed today because our class learned a lot.
