My Hanukkah Google Doodle


1. press green flag in center

2. press space bar

3. watch the magic

4. press right arrow to stop the magic


In library in December I created a Google doodle.

I made my Google doodle on Scratch.  Scratch is a coding website. If I needed help on something I watched a video about it (on website scroll down to choose video topic).

What I think I did well was the magic ( you will know what the magic is if you follow the instructions at the top).

When I do a doodle again I will do more stuff. For example, I will my sprites (the letters) spin.  I will also make it a game.

I am thankful for…

I am thankful for me, and my family because I love them they make me happy I could not imagine living without them. I am happy that I can always rely on them.
I miss them when I go to Camp Ramah Darom in Clayton, Georgia. I am so happy that most of my family lives in Jacksonville some live in Chicago, Illinois and some in New York. I miss them and I love when I visit them or they visit me.

I am thankful for food and water if we did not have either of those we would die.
Food and water make me happy. I like when my family has a barbecue or another family invites us to a barbecue. I like meat and pizza. I love when I have meals with my friends. I wish Jacksonville had more kosher restaurants than just one.

I am thankful for iPads and Xbox because I can play with my friends and family.
I love when my friends come over and play together on our iPads or the Xbox.
I love when on weekends my brother and I play Star Wars Battlefront. I like to play Madden 17 with my dad on weekends. I want to play more games with my family and friends. I am always excited for the weekends or days where there are no school.

I have a lot more things I am thankful for but these are some of my top 10 I won’t list any more but there a lot I covered a lot by saying food and water. I get more and more things I am thankful for when I discover new things.


Have a happy thanksgiving

My State Seal

For my state seal I chose 4 state symbols I will list them and explain about them.

#1 the Gator the official reptile of Florida
There are lots of alligators in Florida (so I would not recommend living near a swamp). We have a football team name the Florida Gators. Gators are in lots of places. Probably they are here because they are cold blooded.

#2 Oranges the official fruit of Florida
Oranges grow all around Florida people plant them in their yards.
They are on farms and in gardens. We can make orange juice
And not get scurvy. they are part of the citrus fruit.
Orange slices are delicious and nutritious and make a great snack.

#3 the Mockingbird the official bird of Florida

So I really don’t know why the chose the mockingbird for the state bird.
I believe the mockingbird is the state bird because there are a lot of mockingbirds in Florida. Don’t know why? I don’t really think I have seen a mockingbird so I don’t know what it looks like. I don’t know why they call it a mockingbird. Does it mock people?

#4 Myakka sand the official state soil of Florida

So same thing I don’t know why they chose this soil I guess there’s a lot of it in south Florida? I have never seen myakka sand, so I really don’t know what myakka sand looks like. There is literally like one thing I know about myakka sand and that is it’s the official state soil.

My state seal symbols

I chose the gator because I like gators. I put it in a swamp because that is a often place to find a gator. We have a football team named the Florida gators in Gainesville.
I chose oranges because I like oranges as a snack, and are the official state fruit.
I chose the mockingbird because I like birds and mockingbirds interest me since birds fly I drew it flying.
Myakka sand the state soil, that interests me a lot I’ve never seen myakka sand
But sounds interesting.
I took these symbols and mixed them up together and made my own state seal.

Fairy Tale: The Three Little Benders

The Magical Cafe`

Hi I’m Andrew today may 19th 2017 my class did a cafe` for breakfast.

We had a hard time making everything but it was worth it.

No siblings could come because it was for parents only.

I had a fun time but sadly today we opening and closing day.


All the parents came there were 5 waiters 5 kitchen staff 2 hosts and 2 cashiers.

It was a fun experience we earned $255.20

I was a cashier and at first I was bored but then we started getting money.

We started at 8:30 and ended at around 9:30.

We served casseroles and banana bread muffins and yogurt and fruit and pancakes.

The drinks were water orange juice coffee.

The food was mostly made from scratch.


All the money we earned goes to tzedaka.

Yesterday we cooked everything and we had a fun time.

I wish we could keep it open.

I had a fun time and if you came I hope you did too.

It would be awesome if the magical cafe` could open somewhere else.

I learned it is very hard to run a restaurant and wen I go to a restaurant I will be patient.

I hope you came and I hope you had a magical day.

Yom HaAtzmaut 2017

On May 2nd it was Yom HaAtzmaut 2017 (aka Israel’s 69th birth day).

We celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut because in 1948 Israel became a state.

On May 2nd at school we went to 6 stations to learn about Jerusalem: music, library, PE, Food, the Kotel, and Art.

1st I went to Music and listened to Israeli songs.

2nd I went to the Library and learned about the old city.

3rd I went to PE and play soccer and basket ball.

4th I went to FOOD and had Falafel.

5th I went to the Kotel and leaned about the Kotel.

6th I went to Art and I made a beautiful window pane.

That is what I did for Yom HaAtzmaut.

My Favorite Parasha in the Book of Shemot is Parasha Bishalach

I like parasha bishalach because the Jews were freed from Egypt.

After  the Jews left Egypt they ran into the sea of reeds.

Then g-d split the sea. So now we don’t now what happend that g-d decided to split the sea.
the Jews were free from Pharaoh. But to what? wandering in the desert is what your life is gonna be for 40 years.

Vocabulary Notebook

opinon writing

Do you want to fly? I know as a kid you did. I know a way you could but it doesn’t exist. Zero gravity laser tag!


I think Zero gravity laser tag is much safer than regular laser tag, because in regular laser tag if you jump off a high part of the arena you would get hurt. However, in Zero gravity laser tag you would float.


I think Zero gravity laser tag would be a good way to spend free days because families, kids, and parents would love the no gravity in laser tag.

Kids would love the floating because when they are young they pretend they can fly. The no gravity will have fewer people hurt because they can float.


I think everyone will love Zero gravity laser tag. I think kids might get their faces out of a screen for a while. I think Zero gravity laser tag is a good idea. How about you?
