The earlier this week we took the first test of 5th grade! It was the unit 1.A math test ( Order of Operations Test ). Well, half of it I did not do it because well I didn’t know anything! It was the pre-test! After weeks and weeks of learning, we got the post-test! I was nervous on the second one more than the first one because this matters! This is like the grade test! Anyways when we got it back today the post and the pre-test there were no scores! In 4th grade, we got percentages and fractions like 94% or like 75/80 or something like that. But this year we got graded by like 1 2 3 4 being 4 the best and 1 the worst. The difference between my post and my pre-test is that I improved a lot! I explained more than I did before and I have a better understanding about Order Of Operations ( PEMDAS)! Well, that’s about all! byeeee!!
hello, world! It’s me back again with another blog post! This is just an update on my 5th-grade life. So far a few of my accomplishments or victories of this week, my first victory is that I made A team on basketball🏀, my second victory is that I can play the ukulele now, and my third and last victory is that I got the character I wanted for the up coming drama play. Some challenges I faced is the ukulele, like the chord Bb or E, those are hard but I have managed to play Bb. Or like going to school on Monday… Just kidding! How I intentionally persued excellence this week is when I did my 20 Hour project ( the ukulele), I said this in the challenges but when I was playing “House of Gold” by Twenty One Pilots and the chord Bb came up so first I was like “Nah, I’m not playing this” but then I actually tried and I am used to it now! So now I have to think of a small goal that I can realistically accomplish by next week is… Oh! The goal is to get better at basketball ( since we have a game with SIS next week ), maybe practice my lay-ups and stealing.
Over the weekends I made a painting of me and my dad for his birthday! How this is connected to the design cycle is first of all imagine! I imagined how it would look like in my head, first I was going to do me and my dad only but then I decide to put my mom in there too! Second of all was a plan I planned how tall my dad, my mom and I was, then I planned what they would wear! Thirdly I designed it! I made a few light sketches and stuff… Fourthly I created it! I drew the lines darker and put more details and painted it! Lastly, I evaluated it! I thought of what I could improve and I thought of some pros and cons! Ok see you guys next time! Byeeee!!!
In grade 4 we were learning about explorers and so in the last explorer post I told you guys that we made Captain James Cook’s ship! After that we had to make a play about it so we did! Our play was the life on the ship and it was pretty good! I was Joseph Banks and Yuki was Captain James, Victoria was a sailor and Annie was the narrator! Oh by the way shout out to Annie, Yuki and Victoria! So if you want to see it I will put the video down below! So thats it. Hope you like the video! BYEEE!!!
So the second book club part I was reading No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Ramsay!! I am just kidding it was Gordon Korman. At the beginning of the book I was confused and it was boring but then when I knew what was happening it got interesting. If I would rate this book from 1-5 it would be a 4. I think it would be good for 10 to 12 year olds. So thats my book review. BYEEE!!! Oh and here is the cover.
So me and my group made Captains James Cook ship and I learned that traveling on a ship is risky but breathtaking sometimes. We made a ship and the picture is below! Ok thats it Byee!!!!
So me and my group we are researching about an explorer and so we got Captain James Cook! We build a ship! Well his ship of course! The Picture is down below! I enjoy this very much because I am with the people that I like and its fun! I learned about scruvy which is a sickness that is very bad and I learned also about a lot about captain James Cook! Well thats it! BYEEE!!!
Ice Tea and a Dead Body.
When the California sun rises Amy is still asleep in her bed, RING A DING RING! Amy woke up like any ordinary day and ate Coco Crunch cereal at the table. Brushed my teeth and changed my clothes. Oh, forgot. Hi there, I am Amy I am 14 and I go to Sunny Side school. Like I always do on weekdays. But the thing is today was different, me and my BFF Sarah always met before school under a oak tree with the unusual leaves. But today she didn’t come. I thought she might be sick so I send a text to her asking where she was. I heard a cellphone ring. I looked over at the other side of the tree I saw nothing. I texted her an emoji, again a cellphone rang. I said “ Sarah if you’re pulling a prank on me this isn’t funny.”. I send her a text for the third time. I felt a vibration, but I felt it underneath me. I started to dig up and you know what I saw, it was Sarah’s phone covered in dry blood. I called 911 they didn’t answer. The bell rang, I sighed. When i was getting ready for Chemistry I looked in my locker and… “AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!” I let out a bloodcurdling scream. It was Sarah also covered in blood with her eyes open. Everybody was staring in shock and they all were scared, well I was scared, crying. 911 came and took the body and looked for clues and all they found was a glass of ice tea and a bloody knife. 3 weeks. 3 weeks and we still don’t know who murdered Sarah. We had 3 suspects. Derek who is the criminal of the school. Molly who is Sarah’s enemy from kindergarten. Lastly Amanda Sarah’s roommate. The only clues on the clues is on the ice tea there are fingerprints of Sarah and another person, on the knife was the blood and no fingerprints. But a cup of ice tea is a cup of ice tea. It couldn’t do any harm! Right? Well I went and investigated myself. And I found out who murdered Sarah. It was… Her roommate Amanda. How you may ask. Well it’s really simple. Last night Sarah went to my house for a get together (studying of course) and so I made ice tea. Well store bought ice tea. Sarah liked it so I gave her a liter of ice tea because she’s my BFF. So she must have brought it home. Sarah hates Amanda. They are forced to live together because their parents work together for a company. Amanda’s kitchen always had rats so she kept rat poison but its not just any poison its if you drink it you will die type of poison. She put some rat poison in water and mixed it up, she put it in ice trays to make poison ice and kept it there. Sarah probably took drank a glass of ice tea but sarah likes here ice tea well iced so she put the ice in of course. And then the ice melted and she died. You might ask “ What about the blood? The knife? Well all of that was fake blood just to get attention off of the ice tea. And that is the story of how my bestfriend died.
