The Funny Poet Acts at Our Feet

Taylor Mali was so funny I like the way he makes me laugh.He had some phenomenal poetry and he cracked me up.All of his poetry is from his life and what has happened in his life.I love the poem about the girl who can't find her pen in her backpack.I enjoyed the one about the dog who was love.He had a lot of bright ideas.He makes some of these wierd and funny noises.I think he had lots of talent. I love his work.I wonder how he makes those noises.Taylor is one of the funniest people that I have ever met.
Today we also did buddy class. In buddy class we did a math game and worked on a TFK.
In library we checked out a truck load of books. Also we worked on our time lines for Kid in the Red Jacket.

Substitute Teachers

Subsitute Teachers can be real awesome or real mean! Our subsitute teacher was cool but she talked too much. She kept on changing the subject, first she was talking about math then she was talking about the Twin Towers! She was cool, I have to admit, I mean, she said that girls ruled the school, how awesome is that! So, subsitute teachers arent that bad.

The subsitute teacher was cool. She let us have recess and she was being nice to me and my friends. I like the way she respects us and I'm sooo relieved she is not one of those teachers who are all mean to kids!!!!Like I say girls rule and boys drooll and teachers rule. Also, I think she is awesome, and she said some pretty funny things. Everyone was laughing at my table except me and Brianna were scared of her.Oh,and when she said she wasn't going to be here today everyone was so happy.

The subsitute was cool ,but she could be a little harsh.But other then that she was an okay subsitute teacher. She knew what to do but on some things she did not know. She even made me never want to go on a plane because she said" somebody put a bomb in their shoes." That's why she was a cool substitute teacher.

So far A Dogs Life is a really good book. Its about a dog named Squirrel that goes on an adventure. This story has detail and lots of expression. The dog Squirrel has lost her mom and her brother. Squirrel meets a dog named Moon.They go on an adventure.

I love this book.Its emotional and suspenseful. You feel like you're in the adventure.

I really liked when we went and got our buddy's I got a girl she is really smart,and I also got one of my friends with me I also liked when we played addition top it.

I was very shy when we they were playing The A For Alliteration video my friend is also with me and my buddy, Brianna. My favorite part of buddy class was when they played our A For Alliteration. And when we played the math game because my buddy was very smart.

When we went to buddy class,everyone sort of went crazy!Everyone teamed up with their friends,...well almost everyone.The thing is when your older little people look up to you.My buddy is better at math than I am.But she doesn't like math,isn't that weird.
Well my favorite part was when we played addition top-it.It was really cool.That's where my buddy Kimberry beat me at the game.

We had buddy class today and my favorite part was when I got to know witch buddy I was going to get.I got a girl named,Chase.She is very fun to be with.We also play Top-it.I was very shy when my teacher,Mr.Miller,played the A is for Alliteration poems because I am the THIRD one!

Well my favorite part in buddy class was when we played top-it addition math game and when I found out that my buddy was My friend Kalea's little sister.
