Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


fullsizer-5img_0367Harry Potter is a book.  In the book a boy is named Harry Potter.  His parents died so he lived with his horrible Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon and Cousin Dudley.  How did his family die you ask, well it all started when Harry was a baby.  This evil wizard Voldemort was trying to kill his parents and him.  Voldemort did kill his mom and dad but instead of killing Harry, Voldemort just gave him a little lightening bolt scar.  My favorite part is when Harry meets Hermione.  Hermione is one of his best friends.  She helps him pass his tests.  Harry Potter is a good book because it is funny, sad, and good all at the same time. By Helen


Harry Potter is a book about a wizard.  His parents died and Harry got rich and famous because he survived You Know Who.  My favorite part is when Harry Potter wins a fight against You Know Who.  I liked it because when they were fighting Harry’s hands burned You Know Who.  Harry Potter is a great book because it is very exciting and you never know what is going to happen.  By Antony


img_0366We just finished Harry Potter.  It was about Harry Potter.  He figures out that he is a wizard and he goes to wizard school.  He finds out that Voldemort is after the sorcerer’s stone.  Harry had to pass through traps to get to the sorcerer’s stone.  My favorite part was when Harry fights Voldemort and when Harry first meets Hermione.  By Gwen

This week in third grade we did coding.  I learned the rules to share a computer.  One of them was called the driver and the other one is called a navigator.  Whoever is the driver, they can only touch the mouse and they keyboard.  Another rule I learned is you have to take turns being a driver and a navigator.  Another rule I learned is the navigator can’t be bossy.  By Adeline

Being Thankful




This week we did a Thanksgiving card to tell another person things you are thankful for about them.  After that, we did a thing called Turkey Writing.  We wrote three things we are thankful for and why.  One thing I am thankful for is my family.  We even decorated it.  Then we did thankful sticky notes.  You got to pick a sticky note and it had a students name on it.  You have to write something that is nice about them and something you are thankful for about them.  When I got my sticky note I felt really happy.  By Karen


Last week we made things that told people what we were thankful about them.  First we made thankful cards so we can tell people why you are thankful for them.  Next we did turkey writing.  You had to write 3 things we were thankful for and why.  We decorated the writing when we were done.  Last we made a thankful sticky.  That was when everybody got a sticky note with someones name on it and you had to write why you are thankful for them.  The teacher thought this was important because she wanted us to do nice things for other people.  When I got my letter and note it made me feel very happy inside.  By Madison
