Today was good. We got to write all the positive things we could think of about the other kids in our class and put it at their animal for them to read later. We didn’t put our names on it so it was all anonymous. It felt good to write so many nice things about people. It was also really nice reading all the nice comments from other people. Somebody wrote for Joshua – You are not an animal, you are a person. I think it was Harnimun. Looks like he’s not so bad after all.

We got to paint today. We’re doing stuff about our homes. We got to paint a picture of our homes and write about our homes today. It was cool. And then at the end of the day our teacher read us a story about his home when he was our age that he had written, and even showed us some pictures. It was so cool. Mr Tong comes from Earth from a place called China. That’s so incredible. He’s lived here for 20 years. 20 years is like forever! He must be so old. I bet he’s been alive longer than anybody else I have ever met. Joshua also had a really interesting picture and stories. He got to write about his old planet because he has just moved here. He’s the only Hippopotati at school so his stuff was so different from everyone elses. It was awesome!
