School and History

Me as Amelia Earhart

Recently my class did a thing called the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is where each individual in my class chooses a famous person and studies about him or her. After studying we write speeches and dress up in costumes.  Then the whole school comes and listens to us and we stand and give our speeches.  I played Amelia Earhart . Some of the other people who came were, Louie Armstrong, Gertrude Ederle, Squanto, Albert Einstein and Betsy Ross. 

I was watching the News this morning and discovered that people in a different country claim to have found Amelia Earhart's plane in a a cave 250 feet underwater.  

My friend Sophie (Gertrude Ederle) & me 
On Friday author Laurie Keller came to my school.  She taught us how to draw some of her favorite characters that she drew in her books.  She taught us how to draw otters from her book, Do Unto Otters and a doughnut from her book Arnie the Doughnut. 

On March 24th  my class is doing a dessert theater for that we will be reading Laurie Keller's Scrambled States of America.  We are doing the Dessert Theater as a fundraiser to raise money for our spring trip to Greenfield Village, where we will spend the day in a school building there and imagine that we are students from along time ago.  You can dress up to look like a pioneer kid.  I am very excited.

It has been a fun school year.
