Garden

Before

Before the garden had smooth dirt and a few clumps of grass. When I started to clean up the garden grass I had to dig them out and throw them away. Then I started to dig up the dirt at the bottom and put it on top because the soil down there had more moisture and would be more fertile for the plants.

 

SMART Goals

My goal is to get 9 hours of sleep everyday.

I am going to measure this by writing it down on a piece of paper ever morning.

My parents will help me achieve my goal by reminding my to go to sleep at 9:00pm.

This goal is relevant because it will help me stay healthy and not be tired during the day.

I will achieve this goal by using my alarm to tell me when to sleep and when to wake up.

The Book of Camp-lore and Wood Craft

The Book of Camp-lore and Wood Craft is my favorite book because it talks about outdoor stuff such as making your own camping materials and teaching you how to use wood to build a shelter and also help you if you got lost in the wild. One of my favorite parts in the book is about axes and saws. It talks about how to use an axe to chop down a tree or make fire wood. This is important because if you ever got stuck in the wild and you had an axe you would know how to use it. This is also my favorite part because where we have property there’s a lot of trees and small ones so I can use my axe in more ways than just cutting wood and chopping down trees. I have learned many useful survival skills in this book.

Poem

Judith Viorst, 1931 website http://www.poemhunter.com/poems/
Mother doesn’t want a dog!
Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they smell,
And never sit when you say sit,
Or even when you yell.
And when you come home late at night
And there is ice and snow,
You have to go back out because
The dumb dog has to go.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
Mother says they shed,
And always let the strangers in
And bark at friends instead,
And do disgraceful things on rugs,
And track mud on the floor,
And flop upon your bed at night
And snore their doggy snore.

Mother doesn’t want a dog.
She’s making a mistake.
Because, more than a dog, I think
She will not want this snake.

Andrew Clements Book Review

Book Review
Jake drake a book with a lot of courage, acceptance, some times kind and sometimes not that kind, and lots of perseverance, and loyalty but it also has some problems about Jake at school like being the Teachers pet but also he has bullying problems also Jake is sort of a bully to. I wonder how Jake became the Teachers pet. I wonder why Jake doesn’t want to be the Teachers pet. I wonder if Jake gets bullied because he’s the teacher’s pet. Does Jake secretly bully other kids? I wonder if Jake ever gets embarrassed of being the teacher’s pet. I wonder what the secret was that the principal told Jake.
The Jacket
The Jacket is about a kid being mistaken for another kids Jacket and making it into an even bigger problem. The jacket is a book with a lot of problems becoming bigger problems but they eventually get solved. In this book you will find it very interesting because the way the author made it is very mysterious and interesting.

Snowboarding

Snowboarding is good because it is a sport and sports help you exersise so it will help you get in shape. Also it is a snow sport and a lot of people like snow because it is fun. Snowboarding is done on snow. If you know how to skate board you will also know how to snowboard . It is almost like skate boarding but with out wheels. It’s a fun and healthy sport so I reccomend you try it out.

This year I learned how to snowboard at Qiaobao which is an indoor faciity near Shunyi. On my first lesson I was falling but I kept trying and soon i was turning and jumping and catching some air sometimes I even did some grinding. I really liked snowboarding but I want to learn skiing next year.
