memories of a third grade joanna chiang

one time, in third grade, joanna sat at my table. she had this elmers glue that was galactical and sparkly and had a cool bottle. joanna was quite fond of this glue

and so was i.

i envied her for having that glue and not the plain white standard glue that most other third grade tots had.

one day, we were doing one of mrs. o's extremely fun projects, and I asked Joanna Chiang if I could use her oh so precious glue.

She simply said no.

I was so mad. Sad, even. I believe I even told Mrs. O. It was the most bizarre thing ever, yet it's a bold memory in my mind.

i also remeber accusing jenny and landon of liking each other because they did projects together. and we would torment them.

OH! i have the BEST memory with Thomas Condron. We were weaving our rugs (we all know what this means) and i passed by thomas's desk. his rug was red white and blue. so i told him that he was an All-American Freak. but here's the thing. i was wearing an "I (heart) USA" tank top (probably from old navy) and red shorts. So he smirked and said "Look who's talking. You're WEARING red white and blue." I was cornered. I didn't know what to say. So I just walked away, very ashamed.

Third Grade Memories = love.

KidPix. I LOVED creating little treasures with KidPix and typing up little poems in the font "Sand" and "Apple Chancery" because I thought they were beautiful.

Rember the video we made for back to school night? I came in late that day, and joanna and makenna and I (we were the only group of three) filmed ours right by the front door, near the bookcases. it wa about the language arts books and the holt handbook.

and melissa and rachel did theirs together on the Writing Workshop binders. theirs included the line "the 7 traits of writing."

THEN Thomas Condron and Michael McGinty (who moved like 2 weeks after school started) did PE. and thomas spoke and michael did jumping jacks and exampled warm-ups and cool downs.

anyone else remember this video?
