### December 15, by Ashley

It's raining! It's pouring! Where's my umbrella!?!

Well we (the class) started the day off with some easy similes and metaphors. What are similes and metaphors, you ask? Well you're lucky that you know me. Oh, excuse me. My name is Ashley. I'm in 4'th grade in Mr Kootman's class at Mary Fay Pendleton School. Where were we? Oh right. A simile is something that compares two things using the word "like" or "as". A metaphor is comparing two things not using "like" or "as".

After that, we went on to math in our Saxon Math book. The lesson we were learning about is about Adding and Subtracting Decimals. Adding and subtracting decimals is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. For example,( 5.4 + 6.1=11.5). How you can figure it out easier is by lining up your decimals.

Ring-a-ding, ding!!!!!!!!!

Recess time! So at recess no one could go outside because it was still raining!!! So instead the class watched a BrainPop video inside our warm and cozy classroom. Some people talked to each other after the video. Myleigh brought some Saltines for a snack. She didn't like them so she gave them to me because I love them so much!!!!!!!!!! After recess, we read our class chapter book called The Homework Machine.

Soon after recess, it was time to go to lunch. Now it's time to go to lunch. After lunch we had a music assembly. It was part assembly, part concert which had the woodwind family. The instruments that were in the family were the flute, oboe, clarinet, and the bassoon. We traveled to different places like France, Europe, Africa, and other places around the world to hear different types of music. The orchestra played different sorts of music like peaceful music and traditional music. I think that the assembly lasted 30 to 45 minutes. But the music assembly was interesting!

Minutes later, it was time to go home. Thank you so much for reading my Daily Blog!!!!!!!!!! See you next time. Good-bye!

In response to Liz and Katharine,
Each student does not have their own blog, rather they submit to me and I post it.
