Language Arts Project

Last week I did a project with another classmate where we could make anything. We were revolving the project around stories that have different morals. We did one about a man who smuggled something across a border. He had a donkey covered in hay. The detective looked every day to see what was getting smuggled, but couldn’t find anything, he looked through the hay that the donkey was covered in AND he looked under the donkey too. A few years later the officer retired. The officer saw the man at a market one day and asked him what he was smuggling all this time. He replied the donkeys. We took a bunch of photos on this app called Stop Motion and then we put all of those photos together. Every time we took a picture we would move the object a little bit farther or closer. I had such an amazing time making it with my friend. Thankfully the project turned out really good!

My Favorite Book

I am a reader. I LOVE reading, especially fiction. I have a lot of books that I like to read, but today I will share one of many favorite books that I like to read. It’s called With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo. It about a 16-year-old girl who has a 2 year old daughter. She loved to cook and is going away to Spain to cook but there is a problem; she doesn’t have enough money. Will she be able to go to Spain and try new experiences there or will she give up her passion for cooking and focus on academics?

Home

The 6th graders were going on a trip tomorrow. Even though I wasn’t going I was excited to stay home for two extra days. I was going to have a four day weekend. I am excited for you to read what I did at home and I am extremely grateful that I  was given the opportunity to go to Camp Hanes. 

It was Thursday morning. I stretched  in my bed and sat up. I realized that 6th grade had just left for Camp Hanes and was happy to be staying at home. I got up, got ready and ate breakfast.  Did some extra math and reading work and ate lunch. It was strange not being able to call my friends in the afternoon to talk with them and play games on the phone with them. My dad came home after work around 1:45 and came to drop my mom off at the airport for the weekend (she was traveling to New Jersey.) I watched Brady Bunch with my dad and sadly finished the whole show. Even though we had finished, that night we watched Ms. Marvel and I baked Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies.

 I had just woken up and heard the sound of pouring rain. Rain is my favorite weather and was excited to be getting rain. I  got ready and brushed my teeth. I went down for breakfast and  finished my extracurricular homework. I couldn’t stop thinking about Camp Hanes and was excited for my friends to come back so they could tell me how it went. I ate lunch and read for 1.5 hours. By that time my friends had come home from Camp Hanes. I came down and called them. They said it was an AMAZING trip and was happy to be home. 

 

My Backpack

Over the summer I read Finding Someplace by Denise Lewis Patrick. The main character ‘Reesie’ lived in New Orleans at the time Hurricane Katrina struck. She didn’t know if her family was alive. Her brother was in college and her mom worked in the hospital. While her dad worked at the police station in New Orleans. Her parents never returned and her house was flooded. She had to leave fast and packed a backpack with the things she needed. 

The things I would bring if I had to leave fast are a picture of my family and dogs because that is the most important thing to me, my glasses so I can see, some clean clothes and a sweatshirt so I can stay warm. I would also bring some cleaning wipes to stay clean, along with my contact lenses, my iPad and iPod and a charger so I can stay in touch. Some writing materials like a notebook. Pens and pencils. Along with a manual sharpener to write or to draw. I would bring some snacks, food and water to stay alive. My watch and its charger to tell time and to text and call. A water filter to filter out the dirty water, money, passports and IDs. A flashlight to see with extra batteries. A pocket knife (just in case) and a med-kit just in case anyone gets hurt. A book to keep me entertained and a folded up tent to stay in. Some sheets and a blanket with a pillow to stay warm and sleep in. Last but not least a leash for my dogs, a blanket for them (a pillow if needed)  and food and water for them so they can survive also. That’s would I would bring in my hometown Cary.
