A Class' Life

We first came to school then we saw Mr.Miller who is bald. After we got settled we went to art. We did a scratch paper. After that we went to recess.Then we came in and we did our Mattew Henson play. We had to make pictures for the play. Plus we also did math about math factor strings. That's when we have to make as many multiplication problems for any number and you can't use the number 1.

Then we read some of A Dog's Life. After that we made a diagram of the eye. Then we packed up and left for home.
