Thank You Ma’am Internal Conflict

The found poem’s story was taken from a short story called thank you ma’am written by Langston Hughes. The conflict in the story is an internal conflict, the conflict is that is the boy is thinking about if he wants to stay in the women’s house or leave the boy in this story is the protagonist is the boy and the antagonist is the women. In my poem the concept is the woman says, “I teach right from wrong.”, my sink supports my poem because the most important thing in my poem is the internal conflict which is when the boy looks at the door and looks at the sink.

school uniforms

School uniforms

 

The vast majority of kids don’t want to wear school uniforms. According to one districtwide survey in Volusia County, Florida, nearly 70 percent of students said they were against a uniform policy. Personally, I don’t like wearing uniforms because it can take away the freedom of expressing yourself, really expensive and really uncomfortable.

 

Schools should not have uniforms because students should have their own way of expressing themself by wearing the unique clothes that they have. According to uniforms destroy individuality article, students with experience in wearing uniforms says it takes away a sense of indivitratiy, and because of this kind of taking away a sense of indivitratiy kids then would just wear a bad style of school uniform style to work and people would laugh at them then they will feel bad. This is why schools should not have uniforms.

 

Secondly, schools should not have uniforms because some schools’ uniforms can be really expensive, and some kids can’t afford the uniforms then they get picked on. According to a school elastic article, an investigator investigated that the average price of uniforms in schools around America, and the average price was $25-$200 per uniform and if every summer and winter they change the uniforms. How much money does the school get in a year just for a piece of clothing? This is also why schools should not have uniforms!

 

Lastly, schools should not have uniforms because school uniforms not only can be expensive, and it can also be really uncomfortable. Most teachers say that students should wear uniforms so they can concentrate more on their learning, but if the uniforms are uncomfortable then how would the students concentrate on their work or the teacher? School uniforms can be very uncomfortable because most female students don’t really like wearing skirts or dresses like me, but the problem is we have to wear polo skirts for 7 hours and plus. According to school uniforms, teen ink articles we shouldn’t wear school uniforms because school uniforms have to be tucked in the skirts or paints and uniforms have to be all tight and suited up. Some people will say that some school uniforms are comfortable, but if the uniforms are comfortable then the fabric would be really good, but if it is really good fabric then it would still come back to the problem of being expansive, and that is why schools should not have uniforms.

 

These are the reasons why schools shouldn’t have uniforms because they take away the freedom of expressing them-self, and they are pretty expensive for some students, lastly it is because the uniforms are really uncomfortable. This is why 70 percent of students in Florida is right.

 

drama

Why drama is awesome?

Drama is a grate class, drama class is a class where you can use your imagination and you can discover your hidden powers that you didn’t know you even have like me I thought that I could not speak by myself in front of people ,but when I had my performance for the Shakespeare monologue I knew how to speak by myself even though I didn’t get a high score, but I still tried speaking loud and clear which really helped me in drama. Drama can be a new experience and you will love it.

I practiced my lines and prepared some moves.

  1. What am I proud of?

I am proud that I spoke in a loud voice.

  1. What’s my favorite thing about this unit?

My favorite thing is to make our own movements.

So we can be better at other performances and nail it.

CER

A piece of advice for Percy is maybe boosting his confidence.

Why I give him this advice because he has ADHD and he thinks that he is getting pushed away by others and not fitting in, for example: “Taken together, it’s almost a sure sign. The letters float off the page when you read, right? That’s because your mind is hardwired for ancient Greek. And the ADHD—you’re impulsive, can’t sit still in the classroom. That’s your battlefield reflexes. In a real fight, they’d keep you alive. As for the attention problems, that’s because you see too much, Percy, not too little. Your senses are better than a regular mortal’s. Of course the teachers want you medicated. Most of them are monsters. They don’t want you seeing them for what they are.”  even though he is just talking about the meaning of ADHD he is saying like he does not fit and he will never fit in and it is like he is really upset and embarrassed when he can’t sit well in class he is disappointed in himself.

He will need to boost his confidence because he needs friends and he wants to fit in but because of ADHD, he just needs to ask and make friends normally and not think of his disses of ADHD then he will act normally in the article/video says that you need to relax and not think of how people can exculed you but think of the things that how people can include you. Then he would make more friends.

6 Word Expression

Have lots of things to do.

Cranky Contraptions

I chose this cat them because my sister really loves cats, the wood was painted yellow because my sister likes the color yellow and the little sponge thing was colored gray because the cat is grey and so the sponge thing is the tail so it’s grey. people liked my idea of a cat. My biggest success was trying to make the crank work, Skills that I learned or developed were how to create things differently, and If I did this again, one thing I would do differently maybe change the format.

Grade 6 Spring Trip

The trip was from the 22nd to the 24th.  The trip was way better than I thought it would be and it was really really really FUN!!!! I learned  how to make fire. one of the challenges was cutting the onion. I loved cooking in the trip because i felt really responsible, the advise i would get is to sleep not stay up and talk to friends.

Ancient Mesopotamia Simulation Reflection

Ancient Mesopotamia Simulation Reflection

GRACE KING

 

Today in humanities we had the whole class split in to five groups to do a simulation of ancient Mesopotamia during the simulation I was the one who was writing down the laws, making the laws were pretty hard. Our team was almost done but because we needed more tape to make the spoon stand up right. The simulation really made me feel like I was really living though that age of time, the trading part was pretty easy for us because we had lots of useful stuff people don’t have.
