In music we are learning to play recorders. We are trying to keep the beat. We practice the notes A, B, C and G. To play the A note, cover the hole on the bottom and the first two holes on the top. If you want to know more go to www.musick8kids.com. Then click on fun stuff and go to the recorder fingering chart.
We have to bring our recorders every day. If we don’t, we can’t play them. If we bring our recorders, then we can keep the beat and learn new notes. Mrs. Trudeau, our music teacher, gives out stickers to students who are playing well. We are very excited about the newest note, F that we will soon be learning.

Papa Tells Chita a Story
by Mealya, Kiarra, Helanea, Shanna, Tyler, and Dakota
Papa Tells Chita a Story is a story by the author Elizabeth Fitzgerald. At the beginning of the story, after supper it was papa and Chita time. Chita said hurry, hurry, mama. She was helping her mom with the dishes. After they were done, papa was sitting in his big chair. Chita pulled her little chair beside Papa. Then Chita asked her dad to tell the story about when he was a brave soldier and had to carry an important message. The colonel said he needed more solders and more supplies. Papa was brave enough to volunteer to take the message to another camp.
He had many adventures. One was seeing an alligator and almost getting eaten. He even had to sleep in a bird’s nest the size of an eagle’s nest. Did Papa make it safely to the other camp base? Did he deliver the message to the officer in charge? Read this story to find out. It is a good book for a kid. It taught us to believe in ourselves and have courage.
What’s for Lunch?
by Emily, David, and Kawayne
At Woodrow Wilson School what do you think is the best food at lunch? Mrs. Palmer’s class voted to see which food was the best. Chicken legs are the best.
The decorations that the kitchen puts up in the cafeteria are pretty. It makes us feel happy. They like to get the cafeteria ready for the holidays. The lunch room tables are always clean.
One problem at Woodrow Wilson School is that kids waste food. They are not getting enough nutrition because they throw away the vegetables! A problem that kids have is they talk to much and don’t not eat enough food. We think they talk too much and should pay more attention to their food.
There’s a new newspaper and it’s the Palmertown News.
It is made by the students of room 204 of Woodrow Wilson Elementary.
News coming Soon.
