Hello future readers!
Hooray! It's finally October! And you know what that means? Halloween is coming! On Thursday, Miss LaSalle gave us 2 things to do for homework; review our vocabulary words for our Spelling test on Friday, and make 2 Halloween decorations each for our classroom. I always said she's the grooviest teacher in our school. I love it when we get Art for homework! So Shante' invited me, Susan and our new friend Bridget over, so we could work on our decorations together.
Shante' has a really groovy room! She shares it with her older sister Alicia, but she wasn't home.
Bridget really liked Shante's doll, Cecile, who was sitting on her bed.
And I liked that she had a snapshot of the 2 of us in Springfield Park taped to her mirror.
Shante' took some construction paper, crayons and scissors from her dresser drawer so we could got to work.
I asked Shante' if I could turn on her radio, so we could listen to music while we worked. It was almost time for Madman Mike. She said that was OK, and that she liked Madman Mike, too. Outta site!
And then we all got busy. It was so much fun! We were rapping about school, and how school is different here in Springfield than it was in Kansas when Bridget used to live, and in Michigan where Shante' used to live or in Arizona where Susan lived for awhile. Wow...I was the only one in the room who has always gone to school right here in Springfield!
We also were talking about Halloween. We were telling Bridget how much fun Halloween was here in Springfield; that Miss LaSalle takes us to the Pumpkin Patch and how last year we got to ride Cherokee the horse. We knew there was gonna be some big announcement in assembly next Wednesday about Halloween activities at school. We all couldn't wait to hear it!
Pretty soon we were finished! We laid all of our pictures out on the table. I thought they looked pretty far out!
I made the Trick Or Treat bag and the fat pumpkin, Susan made the ghost and the skinny pumpkin, Shante' made a black cat and a brown bat and Bridget made a witch and a black bat.
Just then, one of Shante's favorite songs, "Just A Little Bit Of You" by Michael Jackson came on the radio. She grabbed the hairbrush off her dresser and pretended it was a microphone! It was too funny!
If Shante' was gonna get up and sing, then the rest of us were gonna get up and dance! Bridget is a super terrific dancer!
Susan got in on the act with Shante' and starting singing into the "microphone" too!
It's always a groove when I get together with my friends. Especially when there's music! After the song was over, I had to go home to review my vocabulary words and eat dinner. But I don't think I've ever had so much fun doing homework! I wonder if kids in the future get to do fun homework like Art, or do you just do it all on a computer? I hope schools still do Art in your time. I think school would be really dull without Art class every week with Mrs. Taylor, and some of the projects we do in our regular class with Miss LaSalle, like making decorations. Gotta go now, future readers!
Until next time,
