Writing Long and Strong on Jots – Character

Fourth Grade Rats

“Joey is making fun of Suds lunch box.”

Joey and Suds were at lunch on the first day of 4th grade. This year it was time to be a rat. So they were at lunch and Joey saw Suds lunch box. It was covered in elephants. Joey was laughing so hard. Suds was confused. He had this lunchbox for a really long time. Joey was explaining to him it”s time to give up this lunchbox, your a rat now. But Suds didn’t want to be a rat. He wanted to be an third grade angel again.

The rest of Suds lunch wasn’t peaceful at all.  At the end of lunch Joey was still laughing. But Suds did not care what other people thought. All he cared about was not being a rat. It was hard for him because he wanted to be good not bad like Joey.

He could not believe what Joey was doing to him, Joey is his best friend. It was like Joey was bullying him. All Suds was doing is being himself. All Joey was doing is not being himself.




Welcome to 2016-2017!

It’s a brand new school year! I’m so happy and a little nervous. I really like my new teacher so far. We have done a couple of cool projects. I’m nervous because  it is new to me. We also have much more homework than last year. It’s only been a few weeks and I have learned so much. I liked meeting the new kids. They really fit in. It’s fun having new people in my class that I have never had before. These are some new things that I learned this year. In math we learned what prime numbers are. We also learned how to read intensely. We all have got  much better at jotting. This has been such a good school year so far!!!!!
