FC: Tom's Diary
1: Tom's Diary | By:Quinn 2/10/12 5th Burnett
2: In the school year Ida Bidson (My best friend) wants to become a teacher more than anything. Me & Ida want to go to high School but we first have to take are final exams to do that. But school is shutting down. So I Tom Kohl(the tallest in the class including Ida) & the rest of the class voted that Ida should teach the class & herself so she & the class can take their exams to leave for the next grade. I live with my mom,dad,sister mary,and my donkey that we ride to school.Everybody thinks I’m kind,& res We have to keep it a secret because they know Mr. Jordan (head of the schoolboard) would never agree to the school being taught by 14 year old girl after they closed it before. I act like the teachers pet all the time at school when Idas’ teaching. Then one day she announced that she was going to have recess with us again. so the first day she started having recess I planned to throw Ida through the air into the pond behind the school. I’m just pondering how this whole thing will end. | Entry 1
3: Entry 2 | Ida both teaches & still Ida Bidson a 14 year old teacher? Ida BIdson teaching a one room school secretly hiding it from the school board! Ida is facing having to be a part of her family,a teacher,a student,& herself. She wonders if she just quit being a teacher & give the school back to the school board.once they get a visit a Mrs. Sedgewick everything changes. They convince her to let everyone still go studies for the final exam so everyone (including herself) can pass their exams.
4: being a teacher for a whole school! An interesting event in “The Secret School” was when Mr. Jordan at the school telling everybody that the school was closing. So Ida & Tom were trying to protest so they can take their exams so they can move on to high school next year. Will they go to high school to get jobs? Mrs. Flecher (who wanted to hire another teacher) was leaving to take care of her ill mother. That was an interesting event that occurred in the begging of “The Secret School” | Entry 3
5: One young girl playing teacher for a school. In the middle of “The Secret School” Ida has been teaching for a couple of weeks & thinking time is going by like a breeze. She finds out that the school board is having a meeting for the cause of Ida being teacher. They found out that Ida was teacher because she told Mr. Bixler that she was teaching. Tom and Ida made flyer's to tell people that they were having a meeting with Mr. Jordan to discuss the matter of Ida. They agreed that Ida was saving them quite a bit of money. That was an interesting event in the Secret School. | Entry 4
6: A whole class taught by a 14 year old. A the end of The Secret School every body went to the meeting for the school and found out that Mr. Jordan should have let the school stay open. THe class all went to school for the next week of learning. They all went to school the whole time but Herbert. Herbert’s father was the one who told the school board that school was being taught by a 14 year old. Everybody thought that Ida should teach the class a the meeting. At the end everybody but Herbert passed their exams. That was the end of The Secret School. | Entry 5
7: Meeting Tom Kohl a 14 tear old teacher. If I could meet the main the character in The Secret School I would first meet him and ask him questions about his life. I would try to get him to take me to his school and show me around. If he did not want to I would want to take me to his house and show me his farm so I would laern more about him and his family. I would want to kwhat it was like in Colorado back then. I would want to meet his friends and spend the day with Tom at school. after school we would do what ever he wanted to do.That is what I would do if I could meet the main character. | Entry 6
