By Emma: In Her Own Words

My first day was fun and confusing at the same time. I used to be one whistle, which is the way that you know what time it is to go to lunch. Now I'm three whistles. It was a little confusing. My friend told me that I would go against her at my soccer game and we kept looking at each other in a strange way. I think she's going to be tough competition.
My teacher's name is Mrs. Wilhide. I have the same 24 students in my class as last year. I have a student teacher named Mrs. Grimes. We did reading. We read the book Jeepers Creepers and Chrysanthemum. I did a word search and I'm making an All About Me book. I had a doughnut for snack from my teacher. Did you know it had 129 calories in it? I have recess two times. I got to play with my friend Anessa. I got to share all about my summer. I made a scrapbook that I shared with the class. I also wrote in a journal all summer that I turned in today. We also read Miss Nelson is Missing. One of my classmates is on my bus and sits in front of me.
It's going to be a great year. I can already tell.

Wow Emma! I'm exhausted just hearing about your day! I'm sure you'll have a great year in second grade. When Faith started second grade last year she said that she wanted to stay there forever! Faith and Tyler start school tomorrow so I guess I should go and get their stuff ready. Love you lots!~Love, Auntie Heather
