MacBook Airs

May 15, 2012 by

Next year the 5th and 6th graders get MacBook Airs. I can’t wait to get my  computer! I am excited because we all get our own MacBooks so we don’t have to share. These will also help with organizing and writing. My hand starts to hurt after a lot of writing so now we can type all of our information. The MacBook Airs will effect my learning by helping me stay organized. They will help me by having my own personal computer wherever I go. I want to become better at imovie. I want to become better at that because I will be able to use imovie for my projects.I also want to be better and writing on word. That will help me write more in less time. I am so excited for the MacBook Airs!!

Persuasive Writing

Trinity School should have a swimming pool

                                                           Agree                   Disagree

     In my opinion, Trinity School should have a swimming pool. First, swimming is a very healthy sport. Swimming can help students stay fit at school.  Also, Trinity could organize a swimming team that could compete at competitions. I think that would be fun and bring attention to the school because we could win trophies for the school.  Finally, swimming can improve students’ lifesaving swimming skills. Swimming can be very dangerous without the proper skills. These are just some of the reasons Trinity School should have a swimming pool.

            Although I think that Trinity should have a pool, some people think Trinity shouldn’t. First, it will cost a lot of money to hire people to take care of the pool. However Trinity could offer swimming lessons that the parents would pay for which would help support the pool. Second, it could be very unsafe for all of the kids since it is a very dangerous activity.  To address this problem, Trinity could hire life guards who could watch over the kids. Finally some people agree that if it were outdoors they would only be able to use it for a short time during the school year. I disagree because during the summer they could hold a summer swimming camp. Even though some people might disagree I still think that Trinity should have a pool.

The Liberation of Gabriel King

March 1, 2012 by

In school my class has been reading The Liberation of Gabriel King. The Liberation of Gabriel King is about a boy named Gabriel in 1976 a little bit after the integration. He has just Graduated out of 4th grade along with him best friend Frita who is African American. There are many things that are different from the 1970′s and now. First is most white people didn’t like African Americans I think this because when Frita beat up the meanest bully in the whole school, the bully’s dad said something that is very insulting to African Americans. Second, back than most people were poor and lived in trailers. Also there were many similarities in the 1970′s. To start African Americans were aloud in school. Last they had cars just like we do now even though they weren’t as nice. My favorite character is Frita  because she is outgoing and stands up for her friends. Thanks for reading my post!

Ode to Ice Cream

Ode To Ice Cream

Oh ice cream I love you so

When I take a lick of you my taste buds burst with flavor.

When I walk into an ice cream parlor the aroma of ice cream overwhelms me.

You have so many different delicious flavors to choose.

I feel excited as I pick out what flavor I want.

You taste like fluffy sweet pink clouds.

You are a perfect treat during the hottest days of summer,

And you are just as amazing in the freezing snow days of winter.

You are cold and yummy and you suit every type of person with your many different delicious flavors.

I could eat you all day long and I would be very happy.

You are like a best friend to me and I will always keep you in my freezer at home.

Oh ice cream I love you so.

My Christmas Poem!

December 13, 2011 by

Kids sleep soundly with visions of sugar plums dancing in there head. They feel warm and cozy all tucked up in there bed. The star on the Christmas tree is shining so bright. Because Santa Claus is coming tonight. The stockings are hanging from young to old. And outside is very, very,cold. When up on the roof I hear a BANG! BANG! BANG! I run to the window and what do I see? A reindeer with a red nose starring at me! And out of the corner of my eye I see a plump man wearing red. And so many thoughts are going through my head. Could this be Santa, could it?  I close my eyes and pinch my arm, this has to be a dream. And I think about my favorite thing Ice Cream. But when I open my eyes the reindeers are still standing on the roof. And all the way down stairs I hear a man say “Oof.” I hurry down the stairs and Santa Claus is standing on the floor. Then I ask Santa “Couldn’t you have gone through the door?” I have my ways” Santa replied. And with that he put the presents under the tree and winked his eye. Then he disappeared through the chimney.

Arabian Dancer

November 14, 2011 by

Yeah, the fifth grade finally got there parts for the Nutcracker. I got my second choice, an arabian dancer! I am an arabian dancer with my friends Melissa, Meg, Sasha, and Chloe. I am having a fun and awesome time with them making up our routine. In our dance we get to do cartwheels, backbends and many more graceful  movements. Our costume is almost like a jasmine costume. My costume is blue but there are many other colors like green, pink,and purple. In our arabian dance we have J.D who is the Arabian Sheik and gets to dance with faux swords. I cannot wait till the Nutcracker performance! It is going to be so exciting dancing on the stage! I hope you enjoyed my post. Bye for now.

Walking for the Cure

October 26, 2011 by

This weekend my mom walked the breast cancer three day walk. She had to walk 60 miles but it was for a good cause, raising money for treating people with breast cancer. I think that this walk is amazing. It is helping people all around the world be able to live! I really want to thank people who have walked this. Also to congratulate all the breast cancer survivors. I hope that when we all grow older there will be no such thing as cancer. I think this because as we get older the medicine is getting much better. There are many different types of cancer. One of these cancers killed Steve Jobs. Also all around the world they have more dangerous cancers because they don’t have as good of medicine technology that the U.S does. Breast cancer is horrible. So are all the different types of cancer. I hope you enjoyed my blog. Thank you and please comment. Bye!

Current Event #2

October 25, 2011 by

Hello bloggers this is Lele,I hope you enjoy my current event1

My Topic: Gadhafi finally dead.

Who: The people of Libya.

What: People wondering when he is going to be buried.

When: People think he will be buried this Tuesday October 25, 2011

Where: Tripoli, Libya

Why do we care: Because finally one of our last dictators is dead. Also because now the people of Libya are happier.

This is where I got my information,http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/24/world/africa/libya-main/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

Below is an article on Gadhafi.

“Tripoli, Libya (CNN) – As questions linger about his death and those of dozens of others, ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is likely to be buried Tuesday — five days after he was killed in Sirte, and shortly after his body was displayed at a Misrata meat market — a Libyan official said.

The bodies of Gadhafi, his son Mutassim and his former defense minister, Abu Baker Yunis, had been available for public viewing from a cold storage unit in recent days, except for being removed temporarily so autopsies could be conducted. Gadhafi’s family had issued a statement calling on the United Nations and Amnesty International to push Libya’s new leadership “to hand over the bodies of the martyrs of their tribe so they can be buried according to Islamic rites,” a pro-Gadhafi TV station reported.

Anees al-Sharif, a spokesman for the National Transitional Council’s military arm in Tripoli, told CNN on Monday that Gadhafi was likely to be put to rest Tuesday. The day earlier, Mustafa Abdul Jalil — the chairman of the same council, which is now leading Libya — said a group had been established to deal with how to handle the ex-leader’s body.

No other details were immediately available as to exactly where and who would bury Gadhafi.”

I hope you enjoyed my post, Lele P.
