The Children of Green Knowe
Posted on June 6th, 2017 at 11:41 am by and

Question: Why could only Tolly and Mrs. Oldknowe see Toby, Linnet, and Alexander?

I think only they could see them because people that believe them can see them. Or maybe because they were the only ones in the actual family and if you are not in the family then you can’t see them because it could be like a family thing and if you don’t believe it then you cant see it. Also because it may be a type of blood thing so if you don’t have the special type of blood then you can’t see it, but most likely their ancestors gave the blood or something else and made them able to see them.

They only saw one house standing and decided they wanted to spend the night there. So they knocked on the door and surprisingly a old man opened the door. Pimmei’s friend Yishan asked if they could spent the night the man happily  agreed but the old women said they barely had enough  food for them to eat so didn’t want to cook for them. But the old man said that they were guests and it would not be polite to not give them food. So he opened a drawer from under the bed and inside was one big jar of uncooked rice. Then Pimmei saw that there was an young man on the bed and asked that why didn’t the emperor take him to build the vast wall and he said he has broken his leg and the emperor said that he would be useless. The young man wanted Pimmei to tell a story so Pimmei did and started it. After she was done the dinner was ready too. They slept on a mattress on the ground. The next day when they woke up. The women gave Yishan a pack with rice balls and wontons in it. They were very glad since they could barely afford to eat themself.

Ruby Lee and Me
Posted on April 24th, 2017 at 8:53 am by and

This book is about a girl called Sarah and a lot of problems is happening to her family. First she was supposed to be baby sitting her little sister called Robin. But she was reading a library book and her sister ran off and got bumped by a car and was badly hurt she broke her leg, damaged her brain, and broke her ribs. So she was in the hospital for a long long time. During that time Sarah had to stay with her grandparents in their farm. Sarah’s grandma taught her how to cook lot’s of things. One day when Robin finally came home. She was still in a body cast. So she could not run or jump like she would want to do. Robin really liked to act like a cowgirl so her room was very western. But because of her injury’s it was very expensive to pay so they had to sell their house in the town and move to the farm. Since Robin was not happy since she could not run Sarah wanted to make her happy since she thought Robin’s injury was all her fault.

 

Sarah is a really friendly and helpful. But at times when she is mad she can’t control herself and starts saying hurtful things.

 

Sarah reminds me of  a character in another book because they both cause something and them solves what they do by challenging themselves.

Fantasy Writing Reflection – Bubblegum Quest
Posted on April 21st, 2017 at 11:59 am by and

1.  What was the best part of writing fantasy stories and why was it the best?

qYou can create what you want to happen, because if it was a non fiction the everything has to be real, and if it was fantasy you could think outside of the box, and anything can happen in  a fantasy story.

2.  What are some elements that make up a fantasy story?  List as many as you can and then pick one to describe in detail.

You have to have a good idea. A good beginning, middle, and end. Also including lots of details. Your character has to be interesting to.

 

          3. What is the best fantasy story you have read?  You may not use either of the two I read to you.  Tell me why you think it was the best.
I think the best fantasy book is called “The Land of Stories” because Chris Colfer thinks outside the box and adds in things from other books to his own.

 

Wellness Project- flexiblity
Posted on April 21st, 2017 at 11:33 am by and

1.Why do you think it is so important to learn about wellness?

I think it is important because if we didn’t learn about it them we don’t know how to take good care about ourselves.

2. What are some ways you practice wellness?  What are some ways you could improve?

I walk my dog every other day and practice my flexibility, I also jump rope on the day I walk my dog. I think I could improve if I try to do it everyday so  I will be healthy.

     3. In learning about how to keep various body systems healthy, we discussed both healthy habits and things to avoid.  Choose one system and comment on how to maintain its wellness. Remember the posters are at the back of the room and your inquiry booklets are also available.
 I think I kept my heart healthy because I was exercising and I was eating healthy food.
4.What did you learn about yourself from your wellness project?
I learned that I am really flexible but something I need to push myself so I can do my best.

Posted on March 29th, 2017 at 11:21 am by and

Summary:

This book is about a girl called Tracy Beaker and she lives in the dumping ground an orphanage. She said her mom is a famous movie star and dosen’t have time to take care of her. So she had to stay in a orphanage, but I think her mom is pretty poor and dosen’t want to spend money on her. One day in school Ms. Simpkins a teacher said there would be a play. Tracy really wanted to be the main character and she was. The only reason she wanted to be the main character was because she wanted her mom to she her star in the play. Justine, Tracy’s enemy was really mad and pushed her down. Tracy fell right on her bum and really wanted to cry. She told herself to calm down and said she never cries she only gets hay fever and I think it means crying. Since Tracy was really mad she stood up and punched Justine in the nose and she started crying because her nose was bleeding. Just then the principal walked in and everyone started to cry. The principal did not know what had just happened so she thought Tracy punched them all in the face because they were all crying. So she said Tracy’s punishment was not able to be in the play and she was really mad. But at last Tracy got to be in the play and did a great job.

 

Character: Tracy

I think Tracy changed a lot because at the beginning of the book she was boastful  and know she is very caring.

 

Connection: Text to Self

Tracy is like a girl I met. They were both a show off and later on in the year they turned to be very caring and nice.
