Science, history and hula hoops

Posted Sep 14, 2017

I really like my second-grade teacher, Ms. Perez. She’s super energetic and happy, and she was an awesome Spanish teacher. She mixed in fun things with science experiments. I remember we did one where we read a book in the beginning of the year and then we did a science project that’s called Max Side Up. In the book, he noticed that every time the butter would fall down instead of being face up, so we did an experiment about that. I also really like my other second-grade teacher, Ms. Randolph. She taught us about Ancient China and Egypt that I really liked. I also really liked the Native Americans that we learned about. I actually brought my Native American doll in for my presentation. So, I thought it was cool that we got to do some science experiments and have kind of twist in projects with everything. I really liked that. 

What are you really excited about this year in third grade?

I’m really excited that we’re going to be learning about more ancient places like Ancient Greece and Rome and some place in Africa, Mali. I’m excited to learn about that. I’m also excited that we’re going to learn more about writing letters to each other because I really liked that last year. One time even, we were writing letters back and forth to each other in my class, and we ran out of letter paper. We asked for more but she said, “No, you guys are going to take up all the other class’s paper.”

What do you like to do when you’re not in school?

One of my friends in class, we play soccer together, so I really like soccer. I also really like to craft at home and play. I like to hula hoop a lot and I’m really good at hula hooping. Last year we did a contest to see who could hula hoop the longest of the boys and girls. There were like 10 girls left and we had to start walking the basketball court for that. That’s how good the girls were and I won for one of those. I really like running sometimes, too. That’s pretty much it.
