The Book I’m reading now is called: Summer ball by Mike Lupica. Right Now, I am a bit similar to the protagonist of this book. At the beginning of the book, the Protagonist said that he was a bit short and he loves playing basketball. At the start of the book the protagonist said that “You Know that growth spurt you guys have been promising my whole life? When does that kick in, exactly?” meaning that he’s not that tall yet. He’s 13 year old, and is going to go to an elite basketball camp. He’s cut from his local travel team because he’s too short. He leads his new team to the championship, He goes into the camp with a bad attitude, because he believes his crush likes someone else, also he gets in a fight with his best friend just before going to the camp. When he got to the camp, he was a bit excited because there’s basketball everywhere, but then he gets disappointed because he finds out that he’s not rooming with his friends. For me, I’m also 13 years old, I’m a bit short for my Age, but I’ve never been cut from my basketball team, when I’m playing basketball in front of a big crowd, I get a bit nervous and play horrible. Also when I find out that I’m not rooming with the person I want to be rooming with, I get disappointed too. For example. This summer me and my friend went to a summer camp. When I got there I was a bit excited, but then when we were registering, I found out that I’m not going to be rooming with him. then I was very sad and disappointed, so when we got there we tried to let the person that helped us sign up for the camp tell them to change the rooms because, when we were signing up, we chose each other as roommates, so we then tried our best and communicated with the teacher, and then afterwards, We got in the same room.
My found poem is based on “The Monkey’s Paw” By William W. Jacobs. I focused on the setting, there wasn’t a lot of super specific details on the setting. It only described the setting at the beginning of the story. I picked the sentences and words that described the setting and switched them around a bit. I chose to put “Laburnum villa” in the middle so that it sticks out. I also made the word “worst” a bit messy so that the readers can know that it really isn’t that good. I also drew a campfire, the house, and the moon because in the story it says that “Outside, the night was cold but a fire burned brightly”. I didn’t color the house, the campfire and the moon so that the reader can understand that the villa is really empty.
I am an introverted 13-year-old kid,
A person that enjoys water parks,
I’m a bit indolent sometimes.
But most of the times,
I am an athlete who loves playing
The Words That I Chose:
I chose the word introvert because I’m quite shy sometimes, especially when I met a new person
I chose the word athlete because basketball takes up most of my time except school, and my biggest hobby is basketball
I chose this word because It means lazy, sometimes when I’m not playing basketball, I could` be a bit lazy.
In my P.E class we are doing this unit called Health which the first part is about sugar. we did it because we should learn about sugar and that eating a lot of sugar is really bad for you. last week we were doing the sugar free week challenge which we can’t eat any sugar, it wasn’t hard for me since i don’t really eat sugar.

we would have to choose healthy diets every day this graph on top shows what i ate during last week. me and my family didn’t really have challenges of not eating sugar since normally i never eat sugar. at school we need to have less drinks that contain sugar since now we don’t have any water except a water fountain in the cafeteria. for the healthy diet we had to have low sugar, low sodium(salt) and low fat.
in the cafeteria i noticed a lot of people are drinking ice tea which contains sugar, we should start to drink water more which is healthy and doesn’t do any damage to you. we also saw a sugar movie in class which showed a man who hasn’t ate sugar in a long time trying to eat sugar again and to see if it actually does any damage, after the challenge it showed that sugar makes you fatter and it messes with your brain which sometimes which when you don’t eat sugar for a long time you would feel tired, once you started to have that feeling it will be hard to cancel eating sugar.
I’ve got a bunch of favorite books but I only remember a few and one of them are called Extra Credit. I’ve read a lot of Andrew Clement’s books in 4th grade when we were doing the unit called author’s study, and thats when we had to choose an author. Read his books and have sticky notes which has questions or comments on it and sticks it in the book. I like Extra Credit because its really interesting, its about a boy in india or some where near india sending mails to his pen pal which is a girl in US. they’re supposed to write to each other to get Extra credit. both of them has bad grades so they want Extra credit. i borrowed it from the ES library in 4th grade so i was able to bring it home and read it and most of the times i wasn’t able to stop reading.
Tomarrow ( Robot battle) I am exited about it because i want to find out that which robot will win our whole class. Tomarrow i am nervous about mabye our robot will not be the winner of our class because today we are testing on the sumo ring and sometimes our robot runs off of the sumo ring. I think that our robot is not going to do so well because today our robot runs off the sumo ring sometimes i don’t know why but i think it run off the sumo ring because one of our sensor doesn’t work.
My group’s Robot isn’t ready for the robot battles because our robot falls out the ring by its self sometimes, i think the right sensor dind’t work because today i putted my hands under the right sensor and the wheels are still turning the the same way so i think that me and my partner needs the change the right sensor.
the experience that i have with my robot today is that me and partner builded it really fast because my partner’s dad is a robot builder so my partner is really good at technology and today we are almost done with our robot, i am very happy that we builded our robot so fast because I never had builded a robot before and this is my first time building a robot and my first time me and my partner builded the robot fast. I think that my partner has more experience building a robot because his dad is a robot builder and I think my partner has more experience building a robot because his dad tought him some strategys.
