Ivie's Week in Review

I like being the star student because you get to bring stuff to show your whole class. You get to bring a movie and watch it with the class. I took a test this week in math and reading. I did good. My favorite related arts class was art this week. I liked the poem of the week. We decorated it by drawing a setting and making a friend to go in the setting. I am really happy because I got two 100s on test.
