Test! Test! Test! We have two tests we have to do! Here is what we have to do: language arts, and spelling. Today we had an Assembly for people that achieved well in school during the second trimester. It was mostly for Citizenship, Honor Roll, Principal's List, and Most Improved. I got Citizenship. There were over 30 Parents at the assembly. It looked like some moms almost cried. Oh, did I mention that we are getting our report cards? We are so anxious to get our report cards.

At 8:30 in the morning, Mr.Kootman came to get us. When we first got in the class we started to do our math at 8:45. But if you're a homework checker you have to check other's homeowork. First, we do our morning work; just easy work on very easy problems. Next, we did our lesson on "Estimate Sums and Differences." It was easy at first, then Mr.Kootman went hard on us. Then, we did our math packet on chapter 20.1. Mr.Kootman gives us probably 10 minutes. When we are doing our math packet Mr.Kootman sends people to the computer.

For Language arts, we took out our language arts book. Then we got on top of our desks and we did Handing-Off. Handing-Off is where we get on top of our desk and ask anybody in the classroom a question about our weekly story. We have to ask something that is in the story that we read. In class we are reading Anne Frank:Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank was captured and took to a concentration camp. She died in one. It is not because they did bad things to her. Did you know that she died from a disease? Afterward, We went to lunch recess. Me and my friend like to play Hand-Ball. Our recess is only fifteen minutes. Afterwards, Mr.Kootman read a book that is called The Report Card. It is a great story and very funny. A character in the book, Nora, got bad grades on purpose.

Before PE we passed out homework to the owners. Then came the report cards. Most people got good grades, and some got okay grades. I was one of those who got good grades. The good grades were A's and B's,C's. And the bad grades were D's and F's.

We earned PAT this week by paying attention and following directions in class. For our PAT time we got to play whatever we want. It is almost like we are having recess all over again. Only at 2:00 we have PE. We usually play war ball. It is very exciting once you get used to it. The rules are: No hitting above the waist, if you get out you can stand in line or run three laps, And the most important rule is to very honest and have fun.

Christian,
I was also impressed with your writing. It was great how you took the initiative to write it at home. You showed great voice in your writing and I thought it really helped the reader's to "see" the assembly when you said "some moms almost cried."
