Our special fourth grade class went to Bethel Retirement Community.We interviewed five special ladies.We asked them about their school adventures. The funniest things that they remembered was that they put a nasty,spikey,and ugly lizard in the teacher's cabinet.They remembered their teacher was big and fat. They liked to dance around a pole. The most interesting thing I heard while I was there was that almost all of the ladies liked World History. As a punishment the teachers would put them in the closet for a long time. Somethings that surprirsed me was that they would be tied to a tree as a punishment. They went to the fields for a fieldtrips to pick cotton.The teacher made a circle on the chalk board and put there nose in it. There are some things that the seniors and I have in common and some things are different. Kay said that she likes reading and I like reading.They had 3-5 grades in one classroom and I have one grade in one class. I really enjoyed asking questions to them.I really learned some interesting things about going to school a long time ago.
