August 20, 2008 started off dark and rainy because off tropical storm Fay. The rain outside drizzled continuously throughout the morning as we all sat down at our desk. The classroom was filled with a soft buzz of chatter fill with excitement. Mrs. Blas told us to take out our S.T.A.R binders to write our homework. Next, we put together our class binder. Our class binder was split into four sections Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.After we organized a few more folders we took a math practice test that would let Mrs. Blas know what math level we where on. As the class took the test I noticed that everyone was working extremely hard to make sure they did their best.
Later that afternoon Mrs. Blas gave us a lesson on how to use examples from our book to help us answer questions in our math journal. Let me tell you it wasn’t the easiest thing to do. However, we were able to choose a person to work with, and that was a bit helpful.The rain was starting to let up as we went to P.E. and we were able to walk and talk. After P.E we went back to class and went over our math journal questions.That afternoon we learned what a prime number and composite number was. A Prime Number can be divided evenly only by 1, or itself. A few examples of prime number are 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11. A Composite Number can be divided evenly by numbers other than 1 or itself. A few examples of a composite number are 4, 8, 9, 12, and 15. We also learned that 1 is not a prime or composite number.It’s now the end of the day and everyone has packed up and ready to go home. All in all it was a really good day!
