This week was a very busy week. Monday kicked off Kindness Week and our schools Knights on the Run Fundraiser Event. For Kindness Week we wore blue on Monday, gave compliments to others of Tuesday, wrote letters of kindness to friends on Wednesday, then had Donoughts for Dad on Thursday and Friday. Even though these events were full of a bunch of fun activities, we still stayed on task with our daily work.
Every morning we sign in, unpack and then work on our weekly morning work. Starting this week, we no longer had the morning work to do. The paper is now completed as homework. Afterwards we changed classes. My first class was Social Studies with Mrs. Mevissen. There we made diagrams that help us study about famous historical Explorers. Next was Specials which is different everyday. They include library time, PE, writing and math labs. This week I enjoyed PE the most because I learned how to bowl. Next class was Language Arts with Mrs. Meviseen. Since Mrs Meviseen was also my Social Studies teacher, she found an interesting way to teach both subjects at the same time: She had us write informational essays about the famous explorers she taught about in Social Studies!
Next was lunch and recess. At lunch on Wednesday, it was such a blast watching the second grade teacher Mrs. Brannan get pied in the face by her student! A student in her class raised $100 for the fundraiser and as a prize she won the chance to throw a pie in her favorite teacher's face. Oh how fun it would be to pie my favorite teacher, Mrs. Perryman, in the face!
After all that fun was over, it was time for Mrs. Doerr's Science class. We studied about the difference between weather and climate. Our last class of the day was Reading with Mrs. Perryman. There we studied about different point of views.
The week ended with two fun events. The first event was Doughnuts for Dad. My dad is a truck driver and he didn't get back from Indiana in time for Doughnuts for Dad. But that's Ok, I will be able to show "kindness for dad" by buying him some Dunkin doughnuts when he does return this weekend.
The final event was the Knights on the Run Fundraiser. All week the teachers were collecting donations from the students. When it was finally time for the event on Friday, I was proud to have raised $60 which allowed me to run 8 laps, receive a free NHE stringbag, 1 homework pass, and 1 extra recess pass. The actual Fundraiser ends on Monday and I can't wait to here that we have reached our goal of $22,500. We all are very excited about the prize we will get: Dr. Tilley will sky dive and the whole school will watch the video!
