Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the field trip was the Pioneer Pastimes because there were lots of really cool games their like the stilts that you would try to walk on and I also really like the game where you raced your wooden bear up the rope.
And something new that I learned about people at that time was how they got along with each other very well and they never really fought with anyone else.
A reason the mormons moved was because a lot of violence was starting to spread so they had to leave and they decided to go to the rocky mountains.
I would research more about their food and bakeries because I like food and because it would be cool to compare the food they had then and the food we have now.

Moral Dilemma Literature Circles

A moral dilemma is a conflict that has to or more actions with reasonings to chose an action. The moral dilemma in my book (Nobody Else Has to Know by Ingrid Tomey) Is if Webb and Grandpa should tell the truth about the accident or not. And in Nothing But The Truth by Avi is if Philip Malloy did the right thing by humming the National Anthem. In Nobody Has To Know the moral dilemma was solved by Webb telling the truth to the cops. In Nothing But The Truth the moral dilemma was solved by moving to a new school. For Nobody Else Has To Know I wouldn't do anything differently because Webb did the right thing telling the truth. Nothing But the Truth I would do different because it seems silly to move to a new school.

Invent Iowa

         Giteeka and I's invention was Gelle` and it kept stains from getting on your clothes. It isn't a stain remover exactly, because it would be put on before you get a stain. It starts as a liquid, then after five minutes of drying it is two layers of thin plastic. Then when you get a stain, just peel a layer of and you have one more sheet left for later on.
         We were trying to solve the problem of stains on your clothes. It is really hard to remove a stain that got on your clothes. Well, it depends on the stain.
         Our invention solves this problem because of the thin plastic sheets that are durable enough to keep stains away from your clothes.
         I am most proud of how the product turned out and how the poster turned out. The product not only worked good (that is if it wasn't a model) it looked good too. It looked like a fresh product that actually works. The poster worked out good too even though we used paper instead of spray paint. The duct tape added a nice pop to the poster and it was all displayed neatly.
        The challenges were putting on the paper. Putting on the background paper was really hard, but we did it.
        We forgot to add the sources and when we had realized that we needed to put that on, we didn't pick up the paper in the library so we didn't have that to put on.

Independent Project Reflection

My project was about diamonds and I presented it as a slideshow.  My favorite part of my project was the famous diamonds slide because the crown jewels are really pretty.  The hardest part of the project was taking notes because it takes forever. I could improve on notes because I would rather have 50 instead of 20. If I had to restart, I would do a glogster instead of slides. I have no questions.

2016-2017 1st Blog Post

I have three goals this year. I would like to get higher scores for each of my tests this year. Another one of my goals is to be faster with things like getting to each of my classes quicker before tardies start being counted. And my last goal is to improve my reading like reading even more books or magazines or really anything that I can read. All of these goals are important because they will help me get better at studying, getting to classes, and reading better.

Poetry Reflection

My opinion changed when we first started the poetry unit. At first I thought that it would be incredibly boring but it was actually really fun. When we did crossfire poetry it was a lot of fun. We just have a lot of chaos and then we make it in to poetry.  My favorite poetry activity was when we used the cards with words or phrases and then turned it into poetry. It was similar to crossfire, but we used cards instead of writing down words we thought of. I read the story Diving Board by Shel Silverstein to the class. I chose this story because I thought that it was very funny and I like poems by Shel Silverstein because they always have a twist.

Sports and Games around the World Project

My project was about bocce ball. I created a slideshow with pictures and I had six slides in it each with information. The thing that I learned that was most interesting to me is was the name of the small ball. The name of the small ball is the paleeno or jack. The way I would improve my project is to write less in each slide and use lighter colors so I can read it.

Michael Jordan Video

One way Michael Jordan connects to my life is he wants to succeed like I want to succeed in fashion designing. Michael Jordan inspires me is to make mistakes so I succeed in fashion designing.

Book talk Part 1

I read an amazing book called Judy Moody Gets Famous by Megan McDonald. In this wacky story, Judy Moody wants to be famous. She doesn't care if she is on TV or in the newspaper. She just wants to be famous like all her friends and family. It is going to be pretty hard to get famous. Judy decided to enter her pet Mouse into a pet contest and won. Her cat decided to run away and they took a picture and her elbow became famous. The news people wrote Judy Muddy instead of Judy Moody! The genre is comedy and humor because silly things happen.The theme is perseverance because Judy keeps trying to get famous but she doesn't. I love this book because it is hilarious and Judy Moody does some crazy things. I rate this book 20 out of 10 because it is so funny. She thinks she is going to be famous but she does not get famous!Read this book and figure out the ending...........because I am not telling you!

My Passion Project

I am going to make a candy that is healthy. I am going to make a website on teeth and healthy candy. Today I learned what is in toothpaste and what things I am going to put in my candy. I have not found a website yet but in some websites I have found some little things in it. I will show some things that I found in some websites:
                                                   Ingredients in toothpaste: abrasive, fluoride, flavoring agents

                                                                 Ingredients in my candy: flavoring, fruit, sweetening
