End of Second Grade

First Day of Second Grade
Mrs. Bland taught me lots of thing like multiplication and division strategies. She put lots of effort into teaching us new things but math facts really helped me learn. Even when we were airheads you still helped us. I really had fun in Mrs. Bland's class.

The first day of second grade I met so many friends. There names are Shilah, Veronica, Madison, Gloria, Gwen, Aly, and Alyssa. Me and my friends started a club called The Weirdos. In our The Weirdo Club we brought things like treats and activities for everyone. We also did the 100 mile club together. My friendships in second grade made it fun.

I like second grade. My favorite part of second grade was learning about subtracting double and triple digits. We did so many projects in second grade like tear art, butterflies that describe yourself, and the biography report.

Mrs. Bland is the best second grade teacher, ever! Mrs. Bland is very nice even she does fun things for us like going to the computer lab after doing AR Testing. She gave us Bland Bucks if we do our work and listen. I will miss Mrs. Bland and second grade very much.

My Trip to New Orleans

We were at the airport so early many things were closed.When we got in the airport the very first thing is check in, this lets the airline know you will be flying. My mom did electronic check-in.Then when we got in the plane it was very small. We were excited for take off, but the plane was broken. We waited inside the
plane for over two hours. Me and my brother had snacks and some water.

After waiting for two hours the plane finally took off to Denver, Colorado. We missed our connecting flight. So we had to spend the night in Denver, Colorado. We stayed at the Double Tree Hotel, it was a fancy hotel. The hotel gave us free stuff. They gave us (William and me) a coloring book with crayons.They also gave us teddy bears.                                                                             PLANE 2                                                              
The next morning we checked in and left Denver for New Orleans. This plane didn't break down, we were lucky. I got a snack and got to watch TV shows.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 Day 1 of Mardi Gras                                                                                                                            
We met up with our friends the Moncures and went to Mardi Gras. It was super fun! Parade floats were throwing toys and necklaces. We collect all cool stuff from the floats. We had hot dogs for dinner.

Day 2 of Mardi Gras
I took a break from writing.

Day 3 of Mardi Gras
It was raining but I scored more toys and beads on this day. I got hit with a football but I had so much fun.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

French Quarter                                                                                          When we were at the French Quarter I bought a mask.We rode down the Mississippi River on a steamboat called Natchez.The boat had a restaurant and we ate red beans and rice, fried fish, salad and bread pudding.On the boat there was a band playing jazz music.


Clearly, I had a very fun time in New Orleans
