My AWESOME Week At School Ended With A NEW Friend

This was an awesome week!  My sister and I loved that we had an extra day of the weekend with Labor Day.  I played, ate popsicles, and even read outside.  My Dad and I went to the zoo and watched football.
I can't believe it is the fourth week of school.  We have been in school for 18 days to be exact.  

I have been thinking of new places to read so Mom can take more pictures of me for the WHERE WE READ AND WRITE cabinet at school.  This is right outside of my Mom's library so I get to look at the pictures kids from our school and Mr. Schu's school took over the summer.  I love the picture of the boy reading by the kangaroo and the one hanging upside down in the tree.  
One of my favorite times of day is after school in the library.  It is just me and my Mom  I love to draw with all of the markers and colored pencils she has. I have giant paper in her office (and lots of snacks in her fridge too).  
Today I drew a picture of the Blacksmith in my LEGO's. The blacksmith had a lot of helpers so they had a battle.
 I like to draw the little LEGO guys.....even the color of clothes they are wearing. 

BUT, the BEST thing that happened at school all week long happened TODAY, on Friday!  When my Mom got the mail today, she had a package from Mr. Schu.

When I went to the library for class today, she surprised ME and my whole class with Peter Brown's brand new book YOU WILL BE MY FRIEND.  Mr. Schu was lucky enough to have Peter come to visit his school library this week.  When he was there, John had Peter sign my book.  It says, "You WILL be my friend, Hagan."
I am excited that it is the weekend.  I have been trying to think about what I want to do.  I just told my Mom that I would really like to have a friend over.  I hope it works out.

And I hope you have a SUPER FUN weekend too.

The Day I Brought My AWESOME Dog to School

My third week of school started off great.  I got a "Pet Pass" for getting 30 PBS tickets.  We get these tickets for being good and helpful. 
I was happy all day because I knew that Charlie was going to come at 3:00pm, right after library and computer time.  When he got to school, I took him out of the kennel and held him for a few seconds.  Then he took off around the room to see my friends.
Everyone loved Charlie.  It was the happiest part of our day.  
My friends and teacher asked me questions about Charlie.  It was fun to tell them what Charlie ate, how old me was, and some of the naughty things he did when he was little.
It was nice of Miss Saylor to let me bring my dog.  I like her because she reads picture books and chapter books at snack time.  She is my friend.  Miss Saylor has a cat named Murphy.  I love the stories she tells about Murphy.  I am happy she got to meet Charlie today.
Another fun thing we did today at school was go on a scavenger hunt to find the Gingerbread Man during library.  My Mom made little QR codes and put them all over the place.  We first went to the art room and scanned the QR codes with the iTouches.
 After we scanned the code, Ben and I watched it load.
We were excited to see Mrs. Broderick, the art teacher.  But this wasn't the Gingerbread Man!  Mom said that we could scan the rest of the QR codes next week and hopefully find him.  

This weekend we have three days at home.  I am excited.  We are going to go to the zoo, stay up late, and watch movies.  

I hope you have a good Labor Day too.
