Student News: March 11, 2005

by the Students of Room 208

This week the 4th graders were taking the MEAs. The MEAs are a test that you take in 4th, 8th, and 11th grade. They have all the subjects and are very fun. Meanwhile, the 3rd graders aren't just sitting. They have been doing lots of Math. In Math, they were doing parentheses math problems. Also, they were doing Literature Circles on a book called, A River Ran Wild by Lynne Cherry. We had lot of fun doing MEAs this week.

Next, we have been reading From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, by E.L. Konigsburg. So far we have found out that Jamie and Claudia ran away and went to a museum and they're finding all different things like a bed they saw and decided to sleep in. Claudia read and it said someone was murdered in the bed. Also, we figured out that a statue called "Angle" might be a piece of art by Michelangelo. The book is by E. L. Konigsburg. It won a Newberry Medal.

Another thing that happened [recently] was [that] a guest reader came to our class and she read a book called Touch the Moon, by Marion Dane Bauer . It was a good book about a girl and a talking pony named Moon Seeker.

Finally, this week, we had a two hour delay. Some of us played in the snow before school. The Kindergarten [students] did not go to school. We also got to sleep late and eat, watch tv, and read.

That is what we did this week.
