Hello future readers,
This past Friday was possibly the grooviest day of my whole life! It didn't start out that way, though. I lost my favorite pencil out of my book bag on the playground. Our team lost the relay race in gym class, and my mom forgot to buy cookies for my lunch box dessert. Then after recess was test time. The Spelling test is OK, but man, oh man, the Math test! But I had tutoring the night before with Kerry, and she says I'm really doing lots better!
Usually when I'm taking the Math test, I sit and chew on my pencil, and rub my forehead, trying to make the answers pop into my head. But this time was different. I looked at those Math problems, and I actually knew a lot of the answers!
I remembered to add on to the bigger numbers, and some of the Schoolhouse Rock songs were running around in my head. It was nice not to feel like I wanted to cry while I was taking this test.
And guess what? I only missed ONE question!
Miss LaSalle even wrote "Great Job" on top of my test paper! I felt like crying, (but the good kind of crying). Miss LaSalle let me bring the test home, but she wanted me to bring it back to school, so she could put it on the bulletin board with the other top grades in the class. I was actually gonna get to be on the bulletin board! Outta site!
"See Boomer? I got a 95 on my test. Isn't that far out?"
"Don't you dare chew up my test paper, Boomer! I gotta take this back to school on Monday."
My mom took me to Sam's for a super-duper deluxe sundae after dinner, and then to the movies. "It's A Wonderful Life" was playing at the movie house.
My mom was so proud of me, and I was too! It just shows what a little hard work will do. Kyle thinks that schools will get rid of tests in the future. Is that how it is for you? It would be nice not to have to take tests anymore, but it's still so cool to pass one!
Until next time, future readers,
