Some of the problems we face with food production is the fact that we aren’t producing enough sustainable foods, and we’re wasting our food. I think the most important problem to address is food waste. If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest producer of greenhouse gases in the world, after China and the U.S. I learned from pitching my idea and watching it change that feedback is very important, and it’s also very important to get other viewpoints. For example, we learned to try to not only put the blame on the producers and chefs that we’re wasting food, but also to show that the person eating is responsible as well. Basically, we learned different strategies to make the audience more interested and concerned. Hopefully, fifty years from now we are eating more sustainable foods like specific insects and plants, and we will have less waste and more people eating. If not, I think the world in fifty years will have many people hungry, starving, and famines.
Our task was to make a cup insulator to keep coffee warm in the cold Beijing winter. We made our own design to make the best insulator, and the best looking insulator.
For my One Day Project, I wrote a story based on a story I wrote in 5th Grade. Some of the content is entirely different, and some of it is the same. I took a picture of my progress every hour, but at 9 and 10 O’clock, I forgot to take pictures. My story is not finished yet, it only went up to chapter 3.
I had some inspiration, from my old story, but when I wrote it out, everything seemed to go on too quickly, so writing every page took me a long time.

right now, I want to tell you about…… MEMORIES.
MEMORIES are great things. thats why even when we were supposed to delete all our emails from the past years I still kept the ones that my friend Bella sent me when she was in ISB. If you remember, she came earlier in the year with me to visit for her birthday. the emails she sent me were actually pics. I will share them right now.
how I miss some things,
I bet you feel the same ways sometimes,

hi everyone! Today I will tell you why I am happy. So if you are a cool person and read all my blog posts, you will understand.
Remember one of my posts, What I will do during the summer? Well, in that post I said that I might go to camp with my brother if the camp instructors think I am qualified. and guess what…..
THEY LET ME GO WITH THE 11-13 KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So that’s basically the reason why I am super duper happy. This is my first time to go to camp and I, Kelly Wing Wong, have been accepted to go with the older and somehow “cooler” kids. Who’s awesome? I’m awesome. This summer is going to be the best summer EVER!!!!!!!!!!
Since this is my first time, I don’t really know much about this camp, but I can tell you some things that my brother has done in this camp so far:
- He has had water fights
- Treasure hunts for Candy! J
- a who could drink the water fastest contest (lol)
also, they had this really cool password. Guess what it is… WHAT!!!!!!! The password was the word ‘‘what’’. The camp instructors would ask, what is the password? The trick was that the question was really a statement saying the “what” was the password. It was a good trick!
So this is just what I’m going to tell you about happiness and how I encountered it.
read and enjoy,
My favorite poem is actually by my brother, Curtis Shu Wong. It is called If You Don’t Like Summer You Must be Cuckoo!
You might remember this poem that I shared I the beginning of the year, but instead of If you don’t like summer you must be cuckoo, I did If you don’t love summer you must be crazy.
I like this poem because it has humor and it makes me feel more positive when I read this because it makes me think of the fun you can do in the summer.
In case you can’t see the writing in the photo I will type it for you:
school has ended, summer camps start,
everybody has a happy heart,
remember not to step in dog doo,
if you don’t like summer you must be cuckoo
dive in a pool or eat some ice cream,
stare in the clouds and start to daydream,
the trees are tall and he sky is bright blue,
if you don’t like summer you must be cuckoo
go to the beach, lie in the sand,
build a sandcastle with your own bare hands,
get in the car and go to the zoo,
if you don’t like summer you must be cuckoo
you can also click the photo if you want to see it! 🙂
hope you like it,
Jackson’s an ordinary kid, but everything changed when he fell through a locker…
In the first to second page of this book, there were 2 people talking about something that you don’t know. It really grabs the readers’ attention so they think, what’s going to happen? What’s going on? It makes you want to read this book even more without even knowing what’s going on.
I think this book is perfect for kids because it has the things that kids would like to have fun with and also humor. When I read this book I can see the detail and fun happening in this book. It is set in an ordinary place but the things that happen are very interesting.
Quotes about this book:
- – “Be nice to nerds. You may end up working for them. We all could.” ~Charles J. Sykes
- -“Why is being a nerd bad? Saying I notice you’re a nerd is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Linsey Lohan. Why is that?” ~John Green
- -“Ah,” said Magnus. “Nerd love. It is a beautiful thing, while also being an object of mockery and hilarity for those of us who are more sophisticated.” — Cassandra Clare
Age Range: 8 to 11 years old
Jackson is a good kid. He just has to prove it. With Bran, Ms. Holiday, and his somehow nicer brother, will Jackson be able to prove himself good enough to be part of the team and save the world?
The Sisters Grimm:
Everything started when Sabrina and Daphne’s parents disappeared 1 ½ years ago and they were sent to foster homes. Then one day someone claimed to be their grandmother, and their adventures began…
This book is really interesting because just like Michael Buckley said, you never know who is good and who is bad. Everything I expect to happen is never true. Michael Buckley is good at changing the possibilities in this book but also making the story make sense.
Some quotes in/of the book:
- – “Daphne, I don’t think we’re in Ferrypot Landing anymore. ~Sabrina Grimm”
- – “That woman is hiding something!” she said. “You think everyone’s hiding something.” ” You would hug the devil if she gave you cookies.” ~Sabrina
- -“We’re going to need an awful lot of forgetful dust.” ~Puck
- -“The only bad ideas are the ones never tried.”~ Michael Buckley
Reading Level: 5.4
Recommended reading age: 8 years and up
Will Daphne and Sabrina be able to save their grandma and Mr. Canis and bring them home safe and sound?
For the summer, this year I am going to a camp in Hong Kong. The camp is called Outward Bound.
I’ve never gone to a camp before so this will be my first time. So since this will be my first time, I want to go with my brother. The only problem is, is that there are different age groups. 8-10 year olds, 11-13, and others. My brother is 11 and I’m 10. So we won’t be in the same group. Only if I go next year. So we sent an email to ask if I could go with the older age group.
The people at Outward Bound said that it was ok but I have to have proof that I am physically strong enough to be with the older kids. So we had my swim coach send an email to them about my swimming.
My mom says that they will probably let me go with the older kids. They just needed assurance.
After my brother went to Outward Bound for his first time, he said that at the camp it was really fun. When he went they had treasure hunts for candy, water fights, camping, and a who could drink the water the fastest contest! They even had a password and the counselors would ask, “what’s the password?” And guess what the answer was? What! the word “what” was the answer. The question they asked was basically a statement saying that the word “what” was the password.
So I can’t wait for this summer (don’t make fun of me!) because this is the first time for me to go to camp.
