Moving on!

Hello! Next year I will be moving to middle school, I am excited, but also I am very impatient. I have to go through the WHOLE summer to get there. The summer actually isn’t all that bad, I enjoy doing a lot of camps and having a break from school. Also I will be traveling to San Diego! YAY! I cant wait for middle school and a GREAT summer! Hope you enjoy your summer too. 🙂

Hello and Goodbye….

Hi, we know we haven’t posted in SO long! Today is our last G.T class at M.E.S! This will be the last post that we will post! The soon to be 5th graders will post on this blog! This year has been FULL of fun activities and fun books to read! We will miss this place a lot.

This summer we are going to Maine for the 4th of July. There will be a big celebration there that goes all day long! We will also go to Acadia national park to hike around. I’ve heard it very pretty there!

In middle school, my GT project will be about raising awareness for global warming! It is a very big effect on the world! FAREWELL!

 

Onward!

We are excited for middle school. But, to get there you have to go through summer! I will be traveling to Mount Desert Island, Maine to get to Bar Harbor. After that, it is time for middle school. In middle school, my project for GT will be about ending poverty in Africa. We might do a blog in school. I don’t know. BYE!

First Year Final Notes

Thank you for looking at our blog this year! I hope you have enjoyed it. Any comments please place in the comments section. The 4th graders will take this over next year. I have no idea if it will be good. BYE!

Rose Wilder Lane! :)

Rose Wilder was born on December 5, 1886, in De Smet, Dakota Territory. She was the first child of Almanzo and Laura Ingalls. Laura, her mother, also had her own diary that she wrote in. Later, Rose edited the diary and published as “On the Way Home”. Just like Laura at Plum Creek Rose was a “Country Girl”. In 1993 Rose went to live with her aunt “Eliza Jane” to complete high school, she graduated high school in 1904. Later on, she became a reporter for the American Red Cross. BYE!

Oliver Hyde’s Dishcloth Concert

Last week in class we read the story Oliver Hyde’s Dishcloth Concert. It is about a man named Oliver Hyde who has been hiding in his house since his wife died, as well as breaking his fiddle. In the story he plays fiddle at a wedding. But the first wedding turns out to be fake (Good thing to since he purposely played awful). That is when Oliver learns his lesson. He then attends the real wedding and plays the sweetest fiddle he has ever played.

Holes…..Destiny or Luck?

If you have read the book holes then you know that Stanley “stole” a pair of golden shoes. So, was it his destiny or luck to catch the shoes and go to Camp Green Lake?

Personally, I think that his destiny was to have bad luck. You see, his family always has bad luck because of his grandfather. So it was his destiny to have bad luck!

Don’t believe me? I’ll cite some evidence right from the book. When anything went wrong, they would blame his great grandfather.(page 7,last paragraph) A gypsy put a curse on him and all of his descendants. These examples mean that Stanley really didn’t have bad luck. It was just his destiny to have bad luck. Stanley and his family were just always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

DESTINY EFFECTS OUR WHOLE LIFE WHEREAS LUCK EFFECTS A SINGLE INCIDENT OR EVENT IN OUR LIVES.

 

Our New Book!!!!!! :)

Today we got a new book called “Holes” by Louis Sachar. It looks REALLY good. Here is the description:

“Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. The curse started with his great grandfather a long ways back. Now Stanley is at a boy’s detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys dig holes 5 feet long and 5 feet deep! There is no lake at Camp Green Lake, but a lot of holes!”

Sounds good right?! Thank you for reading have a nice day! 🙂

Valentine’s day

The history of Valentines day has long been a debated subject. This legend stood out to me though, so here it goes. Saint Valentine helped Christians escape from prison, which he became famous for. Valentine died on February 14 and was honored with a holiday symbolizing care and love.

How do you celebrate Valentine’s day? Answer in the comments!

The Newbery Medal!

Please forgive us for not blogging in a long time.  Today we are talking about the Newbery medal! It was created in 1921 by Frederic G. Melcher. The Newbery is bronze and has the winners name and the date engraved on the back. The inscription on the medal forever will say “Children’s Librarians Section”. Thanks for reading!!
