Coach Sloth came to our school.  His last name is Sloth.  He is an author. When he writes a book, it takes about one year.   Coach Sloth was in some movies.  He was a football player.  He wrote the Big Fish book and Sammy's Big Gold Tournament.  His books are about Sammy Sloth.  He autographed our books. He told us his daughter's and son's names.   We made ice cream and gave him some.  We gave him a sloth shirt.

In November we had election activities and we have Thanksgiving and a feast.  Thanksgiving is a holiday.  The Pilgrims sailed to a new land on the Mayflower in 1620.  Lots of people eat turkey, sometimes ham, and other good food.  We made turkeys, Pilgrim hats,  and native Americans.  We also made Pilgrim books and read them to our book buddies.  Thanksgiving is in two days.  On Thanksgiving Day and the day after we don't have school.  Lots of families get together and you get to see your relatives.  Thanksgiving is fun.  We are very thankful.

The Election

You can only vote for one person -- Obama or Romney.  You can't vote for both candidates.  We will vote in a voting booth.  You can only vote one time. When adults vote, they do a lot of reading about the candidates.  You have to be 18 or older to vote.  Parents will help us make a voting booth.  Everybody can vote for who they want.  You have to be 35 years or older to be a president. You have to be a US citizen.   Every 4 years you can vote for president of the United States.  Don't make fun of the other person's candidate.  Please get out and VOTE!  You vote for the president and vice president.  Every president has a vice president.

Give Me Five

This is a way for us to quiet down right away.  The five means:  Lips are zipped.  Legs are crossed.  Eyes are watching.  Ears are listening.  Hands are still.  Mrs. Stickler, the guidance counselor, taught us this.  We have done well.  We're practicing this at school and at home and in the gym with all the other grades.  We practice it in Mrs. Riggs' room.  It's good to practice and the more we practice, the better we get.  If we are too loud, the teacher says, "Give me 5."  It will last a whole school year.  When we get older, we can help others learn this.
