Making Toys! ?

     Hello everyone! Previously, we have been working on making toys/robots. The members of the group I am in are Saki, Joo Eun, Jessica and ME! We were making a toy called, “Mr. Bacon.” To make this toy, we used a kit called The Humming Bird Kit. In the Humming Bird Kit, we have things like wires, sensors, motors and a Micro controller, which controls all the wires and sensors.

     Here are the instructions on how to play with Mr. Bacon: 

     To activate Mr. Bacon, simply wave your hand around him and he will be activated. When he is activated he will first say,”Hello, my name is Mr. Bacon. Do you know what time it is? DISCO TIME!” Then, he will move his hands up and down and the LED lights in the background will start flashing like a real disco party!

To make Mr. Bacon, we just drew a piece of bacon with a mouth and eyes onto a piece of cardboard. Then, we found a cardboard box so we used it as the stage. After that, we took another piece of cardboard and drew the background of the stage and stuck it onto the cardboard box. Then we just needed to do the programming and put the wires together, you get the idea.

Today I will talk about Sports Day!

One of the stations that we did, had a game like musical chairs, but instead of chairs, we used GIGANTIC buckets of water! I was second place. First place was my friend, Alexis.

Here is a picture of me doing the musical buckets.

Another station that we did, had an obstacle course. First, we would jump over these fence like things. Then, we would hop into an inflatable pool, filled with water. After that, we would crawl under a bridge and go back into the line.

Reading Buddies!!!

Hello! Today, it was the first time I had a play date with EC 3/4 reading buddies in 4th Grade! Our buddies are from Ms. Elaine’s class. My buddy’s name was Yi Jing. She is Chinese. We had a fun time together. First, I made a paper airplane for Yi Jing, while she drew in her drawing book.

Then, we painted. I painted the outline of the butterfly and Yi Jing coloured it in. After that, we went back to Yi Jing’s drawing book and drew each other. I asked her,”Which one do like, my drawing or your’s?” “YOURS!!!”. She said immediately. It was so fun playing with her.

The funniest part about it was when Ms. Elaine announced that I was her buddy. Yi Jing slapped her hand on her forehead. I think she did that because she thought I was a boy. After that, she loved me! HA HA!!!

My Christmas Holiday!

Dear Everyone,
On the holiday, I went to San Jose to meet my relatives. During the time I was there, my Brother took me to a hockey game. San Jose Sharks VS Colorado Avalanche. It was really fun. I even bought a hat that says “Sharks!”. I wear it all the time now.
On christmas, I got a lot of things. I got a DanTDM poster, One Direction Posters to finish my One D poster collection, Harry Potter Poster and calendar, One Direction makeup from my Brother in England, Glitter box, Harry Potter hat, Harry Potter necklace, and a basketball.
We also went to Lake Tahoe! My brother rented a cabin for me, my Dad, my Brother, my Sister in Law, my Niece, my Nephew, and even our dog Luna! I took snowboarding lessons, too!!! Our instructor, Luke, was VERY funny. He is from Argentina. Once he told us,”If you wanna throw snowballs at me, do it, i’ll call your parents.” We learned how to stop, turn, move our snowboard and we learned how to this turn called the J turn because turn our snowboards like the letter J.
When we came back from Lake Tahoe, my old friend, Lucia came over. We made hot chocolate with sprinkles and mini marshmallows on it. I didn’t drink it because I don’t like chocolate or marshmallows. My dad says thats a good thing because chocolate and marshmallows all have A LOT of sugar in them.
My holiday was really fun but sadly it was time to say goodbye. My brother promised me that if I come next christmas, we’ll go snowboarding again.
