We played football at recess. For theology we learned about Rosh Hashanah. We had apple and honey apart of Rosh Hashanah. Now we get a second recess because we did not get gym.
Today we went to the arboretum. We did a work sheet called " dichotomous tree key". This work sheet you had to identify the trees in the area. I thought it was really fun to work with pareners and figure the tree names out. Sarah is a great person and hopefully she will stick with us. We did 14 trees and here are a few :jack pine , red maple , quaking aspen , and more! We also had fun during recess the boys played kick ball the girs danced. Also fun.
A wonderful day was what today was. Just a regular day at SJP. This morning we began our day with our Voab. We learned about the Elements of literature.

After that we continued with our normal scheduale (math, lang. arts, social, and theology). In world languages some of us are getting ready for a test tommorow. We have band today and tom. All in all it was a good day.
Today, I had a great day at school. First, we had a reading test in Language Arts. It was on our book, " A Single Shard". It wasn't the hardest test ever but it was a challenge. Then, we took a Social Studies test. Mrs. Anderson thought it was pretty tricky so she let us use our books for it. After that, in chinese class, we had a little test. We had to know how to answer questions like "How are you?" and also how to write numbers 1-10. yi er san si wu liu qi ba jiu shi. Today was a great day in sixth grade at St. John's Prep!
