Blackout poem

Between the mother and the wife, is simply the master. The period is the forma divine. After a year of groping and honest teaching. Attitude and home.


Hello every one! Today I’ll be talking about another Language Arts project I did. We picked out 6 stocks or less. We had a budget of $20,000. I picked out Wendy’s, Twitter, Nike, Doordash, Kelloggs, and Microsoft. These all totaled up to $19,993.35. Every week we checked up on our stocks once a week. I picked these stocks because they are companies I like. We tracked our stocks for a few months. I really really enjoyed it.

The reason we did this is because we read the book, The Westing Game. A character inside this book, named turtle was very interested in stocks. Our last time checking stocks was last week. Stocks are incredibly interesting. We didn’t actually get money from this but it was still really fun!


Have a good day night!

Ted Talks


Hey everyone! I’m sure you guys may have heard of TED talks. But in case you don’t, here they are in a nutshell. Someone comes up in front of a crowd with a topic. They have usually been studying the topic for years. And then they give a presentation. But for us, we had about three days.


  • Watch Ted talks
  • Think up a topic
  • Fill out a sheet of questions about your talk
  • Do research
  • Create a presentation
  • Present

So to start out we watched a few TED talks on our own. Then we had to think of a topic, taking into account if we have a connection to this topic. My topic was How the Pandemic  Changed and Helped the Growth of Video Games. I chose this topic because I  played video games a lot over the pandemic. After we did this we filled out a “skeleton” about our TED talk. We picked a few key points, mine were The increase of video game players over the Pandemic, How video games could have affected people over remote learning, and how this could have increased video games popularity, and Did more video games come out over the Pandemic than usually in a year. Then, it was time for the research! We researched, we scoured the web, and put all this information in our presentation. After we finished our slides, we presented to our friends, then to the the class. This activity was so much fun. I had a really great time.

Digging Down and Reaching up: Tree Books

Hello everyone! It’s me again. Today I will be talking about an LA project. This project was called tree books. In previous years, sixth graders did hero books. In these book you right a poem about someone that had an impact on your life. Our tree books were somewhat different. We worked together with Peg Gignoux to make them. Thank you Peg! The link to her website will be at the bottom of this post.


● Screen printing
● Paper folding
● Akua ink
● Collage
● Pockets
● Salute to My Roots
● Life List
● When This is Over
● My Wish
● The book Wishtree by Katherine Applegate
● Frank Gallery presentation

Now, let’s break this down.

Screen printing. For screen printing we took pieces of paper with tree poems written on  them. Then used paint to print them onto a big piece of paper.

Paper folding: it’s pretty simple, all we did was fold a blue piece of paper or look like a book.

Akua ink:  For this, we took some leaves and flat objects that occur in nature. We took some ink, and our objects. We rested the object, (leaf, petal, grass, etc) on a piece of paper. We took a roller with ink on it and rolled it on a different piece of paper. After we lifted up the piece of paper with the ink on it we had a colorful paper with a leaf imprinted on it.

Collage and envelopes: So I combined these because we did the same thing for both. We took scarps of paper and some akua inks, and cut them up. We glued these shapes and cutouts into the tree books and our envelopes, then glued our envelopes to the tree book, two inside, one outside.

Salute to my roots, life list , when this is over, and my wish: For these we took Google docs and wrote them down. Imagine you were writing a lists about the future. That’s what the life list and when this is over is about. On the Life list we wrote things we hoped to do until we were 150. Then for our when this is over, we wrote about what we dreamed about to happen after corona, but also whicy regulations we wanted to keep after corona. Salute to my roots is where we wrote about someone that impacted our lives. I wrote about my great grandfather. Finnaly, my wish is where we wrote something we wished for. Here is mine: I wish for a great June.

Frank gallery: After three months from March 28th to May 28th, we finally presented our books. With our families we went and looked at our books and explored the gallery. Here is the link to the website.


I hope you enjoyed his blog post. These books were really fun to make. Thank you for reading.

Frances Dowell Story


Hello! Today I will be talking about something we have been doing in my class recently, but first, here is some background information:


  • Who is Frances Dowell?

Frances Dowell is an author who wrote books such as Dovey Coe, The Secret Language of Girls, and Shooting the Moon.


  • What is the Frances Dowell Story.

The Frances Dowell story is a book we have been writing in Language Arts class.

My Frances Dowell  story is about a man falling through time through myths. Here is my opening;

was just sitting in my  living room watching the news when I heard about it. This was the first time anything interesting happened here in Arslcer Hill. This town had a lovely school, theater, a grocery store, and a few streets with small, one story houses made of brick and stone.

If I end up liking my book I might write more in a series. Here is the link to Mrs. Dowell’s website:




Anyway. We have been working on these for a few weeks and because of Corona however we had to meet With Frances online.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. It’s super fun to write your own story and you should try it.


Window or Mirror?

Hello everyone! Welcome back, today I will be talking about Window or Mirror books, and talking about a book I read that is a mirror ish book.

A window book is when you look on to a new world that an author came up with, such as Harry Potter. When you look at a world you don’t have any connections too.  Any time you read a book, it’s fun to try and connect.

A mirror book is the opposite. Like mirrors, they reflect you. Say I was reading a book about a sixth grader that loves to read books. That matches up with my life, I can connect with it, because the author made it so the readers feel connected to the character and want to read on in the book.

The book I will talk about it Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So Happy Birthday. This book is a mirror because it is about a girl in middle school, who has to face, every day things. In this book she is planning her birthday party. I know what it’s like because I always try to plan a big fun party, but I always end up doing something really simple. She  has an annoying sibling, which I can relate to. But unlike her, I don’t have an arch frenemy.  This book is really good and I implore you to read it if you can. It’s an amazing book.

Daily Habits Part 2

Hello everyone, Happy February! Today I will be once again talking about daily habits.

Let’s start again with planking, as you know we planked from some time in November to the 17th of December. As you may remember we started of with 30 seconds and slowly added 10 seconds every two days. During our last week the days 12-17 of December, we added 30 seconds every day. At the end our final plank time was about 3:30 minutes. I’m not sure however so that I’ll need to figure out some other time. That’s enough about planking.

Now let’s  start with my January daily habit. My daily habit was to run every day. When I started I found it difficult to run long distances because I hadn’t ran in a few months. I started with a simple path around my neighborhood, it is two circles. If you run both of them you get a total of 1.04 miles. After a while I lost motivation and began to only run for about 5 minutes, which got me about half a mile. Now that is a new month I am choosing to change it.

You might be wondering what I am going to change it to, well after running I decided I needed to rest, and knowing that I though about what I found relaxing, I finally realized what it was and I realized it was a reading. So I decided to read 3 chapters of my books every night!


I hope you choose some daily habits at some point, as the help you reach goals.











What punctuation am I?

I am an exclamation mark, signaling excitement. I stick out more  than the rest. I don’t always fit in but that doesn’t mean I don’t belong there. Sure I’m not always useful, but that just makes me more special. The point and the line are my body and my heart that keeps me alive. But when you turn an exclamation point upside down you see my body and
head. My brain helps me feel feelings. And an exclamation point shows excitement, urgency, and anger, emotions I can relate to.


Daily Habits




Hello there everybody! Welcome back to my blog! Today I will be talking about daily habits! Daily habits are  important because did you do set things you Want to do everyday.



During our time between November and December we began planking every day. We began with planking during our class time. We began at 30 seconds and added 10 seconds every two days. After a few weeks of planking, when we were getting close to our winter break we added ten seconds every day. Our end time was 3:40.  Planking is very hard but I am very glad I did it. In the end, I was only able to last about 30 seconds. But it was still nice to try.

Independent daily habit

My daily habit is to run/walk every day. And an  extension of that is to have ran 6 miles in a week.  Running has always been difficult for me because I have never been very athletic. I have played sports my entire life, but I never truly learned how to run at a reasonable pace for a long time. That is why I chose this goal. So far I have run a total of 8.22 miles. it’s not as much as I had hoped, but it is still a good amount. My parents run very often so I get to run with them. Running with my family has helped me get better at running. I   will continue running as much as possible.


These are my daily habits. I recommend you to set some daily habits so you can get better at something. Happy New Year and goodbye!
