Being a teacher is hard but fun, in our first prepping lesson, we thought of what book we should read to the 2 graders. After picking the books, we had to prepare the science materials so each of us collected materials. When all of us entered the classroom, I felt really excited because it was my first time teaching and I thought that I would do a good job, the students were sometimes goofy and sometimes respectful. All the activities have gone well and fun, I enjoyed teaching them. My favorite moment was teaching them how to play the card game because I had a lot of students to teach and they managed to learn it so I’m kind of proud of my self.
In humanities class, we had a Mesopotamia Simulation. There was a secret invention in the envelope but before opening it we need to have the materials we needed, trading was the only way to get what you needed with other people. We couldn’t talk to each other but we can use symbols to communicate with each other. After getting all the materials, we can open the secret envelope. The invention was the catapult, we finished building at the same time as the other group. Later on, Ms. Shannon explained why we finished so quickly. It was because we had lots of materials to trade in what we needed and the other groups didn’t, and that’s why cities conquered each other when one is weak. The simulation was interesting because it made us understand how people worked during the Mesopotamia times.
Ms. Shannon chose our civilizations and let us pair groups by ourselves. I got what I wanted which is the Mayan Civilization, This project was really fun because I like to study the Mayan Civilization and I also enjoyed filming. We first researched the Mayan Ball Game then we started filming. George and I helped to do the script and Jett did the video things, the whole project has gone well. I am really satisfied with our video, it was cool to watch. We could improve on the effects because we sometimes didn’t have a chance to use the green screen. Overall, I was satisfied with our video. It was cool to watch!
Many people likes to take care of dogs but some don’t. Because some think that they have no spare time to take care and some even thinks that taking care a dog can give them a headache!
In my opinion, it was a pleasure for taking care of a dog, it could release stress and bring happiness, for example, I have a friend that has a pet dog, one day he had a bad mark at the exams, he was sad. But then when he got back home, he saw his dog waiting for him at the door, the day after, he was better.
I talked to a woman that has took care of several dogs, she said before she had dogs, she was so stressed from work that she couldn’t sleep well, but after her friends suggestion, she finally bought a dog, she realized that she got better.
I read a book about dogs saving people, it mostly happen in natural disasters, for example people were trapped in buildings after an earthquake, well dogs could save people by using their nose to sniff out the smell. Some people are scared of dogs have different reasons, the most common one is that people are scared of getting scratched or bitten.
Taking care of a dog is a hard job, some people thinks it is fun to tae care and some doesn’t. People have to buy food and other supplies, they even have to take the dog a walk every dat. I think sometimes it is hard and sometimes it is fun.

George hates his grandma, she is a miserable old grouch, she likes to do bad thing to George. One day, he had enough of it, he mixed a lot of strange things together and boiled it. He fed the medicine to grandma! At first, Grandma grew taller taller and now she is taller than the house! When mom and dad came back and saw what happened to grandma, mom fainted and dad thought it was marvelous! He could use the medicine to feed the animals! He once fed it to the animals until the medicine ran out, his dad asked George to make the medicine again, George tried but he can’t remember all the ingredients, he tried many times, but none of them work. At last, his grandma thought the medicine was her morning tea so she drank it, even though everyone was telling her not to, but then she kept shrinking until no one can see her ever again.
I think the theme is that people have to be creative to create new things, example like George, he created his own home made medicine!
