Fisher school Fun!!!
by Kieran,Mia and Momin
We pretended to be students in the late 1800s and went to the Fisher school. We practiced writing with quill pens.We had a spelling bee , team 2 won. In the spelling bee we got in a line and the teacher told one line a word and if they tried 2 times and got it wrong both times the other team got a try. During arithmetic,we did math problems in our heads and we also used slates. During recess we played games like marbles and jacks ect. At lunch the boys brought hobo sticks and most girls brought baskets. Everybody got to try on the dunce cap, even though nobody was bad. You wear the dunce cap when you are bad. We read Mr. McGuffy’s readers that taught us a lesson. (Mr. McGuffy is an author.)We call the female teachers Mistress and male teachers Master. That‘s why we had a wicked awesome time at the fisher school !!!!!!!!
This is where the boys would keep their stuff.
We had math.
In math we did multiplication problems. We used slates to figure out the answers.
The Dunce Cap
For a punishment in the olden day schools, if you were bad you would where the dunce cap.The dunce was in front of the class where everyone could see you.
