If you wanted to learn about what Mr. Coley’s class did today, you
came to the right place! I’m Cat and I will be telling you what we
did on May 2nd, 2011.
First we did our Morning Business. Like usual, we wrote down our
homework, got out homework, which was to bring back a progress
report, and checked our boxes. Then we played a great game called
Define It! Basically you roll a die to get a random number and
assigned to each number is a word. You must define the word. If
you don’t know the definition, you can ask for a sentence but if you
do know, you can put it in a sentence. The people who got to
play Define It! were Adrian, Sheyenne, Jenny, Jasmine, Mason, Gabby,
Alana, Conner, Sam, Marcus, Cat (me!), Trevor, Jonathan, Elaina,
Joseph, Myles, Ethan #7 and Natalie.
Next, we worked on Writing. Some people, like me, were done with
their Cats vs. Dogs: Which Makes a Better Pet? persuasive
essays. Instead, we worked on our DARE essays, which are due on May
6, 2011, this Friday.
After that, we started our last day of our CST prep, which stands
for California State Testing, because tomorrow we will start
testing! We only worked on the Language Arts section because that
is what we will do tomorrow. There were questions like “Which is
the proper spelling?” and “What is the definition of _______?”. We
also have a system where we go over the answers and Mr. Coley will
pull a random number and if that person got the question right, they
can earn a piece of licorice or if, like me, you have braces you can
get something else.
Following our CST practice was Science. We learned about the
planets and the sun already, so we learned about Other Objects in
the Solar System. Those objects were moons, asteroids and comets.
Mr. Coley also told us that we’re going to take an open-note science
test on Thursday. We were also supposed to work on our Neptune
ILTs, (independent learning tools) but we didn’t get a chance to.
Afterward, we went to recess. I ate my snack quickly and went to
the library to help out. We sorted books for our librarian, Ms.
Groff, and we did a lot.
Upon returning to class, we started math. Some kids went to other
classes but I stayed. Mr. Coley said to the arriving students, “Get
out your bubble sheets and scratch paper! ”. So we did more CST
prep, only this time we worked on the math section.
When math was finished, we went to lunch. I bought my lunch from
the cafeteria. It was chicken nuggets with a chocolate chip
cookie. When I was done eating, I went back to the library with my
friends to help Ms. Groff. We sorted lots more books.
Since Mondays are early release days, meaning we leave at 1:30pm
instead of 2:30pm, we started to pack up after lunch. After we
packed up, we left, and that was the end of this exciting day!
