MacBook Airs

May15

Next year the 5th and 6th graders get their own MacBook Airs. I am really excited about them because they will help me do my work neater and quicker. I am faster typing than I am writing. I also like how you can customize it so you can make it look your own way and in a way that doesn’t distract you when you’re doing your work. Also, I think they will effect my learning a lot in a good way. I think it will help me do my work faster and quicker. I will want to learn how to make iMovies better. I think that iMovie will help me a lot because it is good for projects and I think that in 6th grade you will have a lot of projects. I am really excited to get MacBook Airs.

The southern United States is better than the northern United states

April26

In my opinion, the southern United States is a better place to live than the northern United States. First, in the southern United States, there is warmer, sunnier weather. With warmer weather, kids and adults can play outside rather than sit inside all day and play video games. Second, there are more trees and plants in people’s yards and around buildings because the weather is better for growing plants. Trees let out oxygen into the air so the air won’t smell like car exhaust.  In most places in the northern United States, crime tends to be a problem in big cities.  In the southern United States, it is safer to walk around by yourself at night or in the day. Those are just some of the many reasons that that the southern United States is a better place to live than the northern United States.

However, some people would argue that the northern United States is a better place to live than the southern United States.  One reason is that there are a lot of big attraction sites and factories like the empire state building. However, with all the attraction sites and factories, it is very crowded and filled with people and hard to get around. Another reason is that there are a lot of big cities and in big cities, there are usually more things to do. However, in the southern United States, there are usually smaller cities and in smaller cities, you have more privacy and time to yourself. Even though people that like the northern United States better make good points, the benefits of the South outnumber those of the North.

The Liberation of Gabriel King

March1

I like the book The Liberation of Gabriel King so far. It was very different today than it was in 1976. One difference are that they were just being forced to integrate, like in Gabriel’s school. One similarity are that some of the people that were famous then were famous now, like Jimmy Carter.

I think that Gabe doesn’t worry about being Frita’s friend because Frita is the only friend he has and he doesn’t want to loose his only friend. Also, I think that she helps him a lot. For example, she is helping him overcome his fears.

My favorite character so far is Frita. I like her because she is funny, adventurous, and fiesty. Also, she likes to push Gabe on.

I predict that Gabe will decide to go to the 5th grade with Frita’s help. I think that Frita is going to help Gabe overcome his fear of Duke beating him up in 5th grade and his other fears.

Ode to my Bed

January12

Ode to my Bed

By: Kate Carson

Oh bed,

How you
fill me with warmth,

When I’m
bundled up in you,

I smell
the sweet scent

Of your freshly cleaned linen

When I’m
asleep on you,

How I hear
the sound of my dreams

That you
helped me create

When
laying with you in comfort,

I feel
safe and sound,

Like I had
10 body guards all around

How I can
see a place

Where I
can relax,

Where I
can let all my thoughts escape

How your
soft covers

Make me
feel

Like I’m
lying in a pile of feathers

How you
call to me,

Opening me
up,

Enveloping
me into your comfort

When I’m
tired,

I lay on
you,

Thinking
of your warmth

As I lay
on you,

Exhaustion
starts to take over,

I get
deeper into my covers,

My eyelids
start to get heavy,

Putting me
into a deep sleep

phoenician alphabet

October14

My question is “How is the Phoenician alphabet similar or different to our alphabet?” I chose this topic because I like learning about different languages that don’t exist anymore. I like to learn what old languages look like, too. It is fascinating to learn about a language that is the root of many of our current languages.

The Phoenician alphabet developed from the Proto-Canaanite alphabet. The Phoenician alphabet has 22 letters and we have 26 letters. Also, the Phoenician alphabet has no vowels and we have vowels. The Phoenician language is the root of many other languages including Latin, and Greek. The letters in the Phoenician alphabet look similar to the letters we use today. It is easy to see how the English language came from Phoenician.

I think I did well because I found a lot of information and I am very proud of my project. I wish I could’ve been more wise with the timing of my project. Other than that I loved doing the project an I had a lot of fun.
