This is a book review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K.Rowling I did on Kidspiration.
Last week, on Friday at 8:20, I had my SLC. SLC stands for student led conference. That’s when the student tells their parents what they need to work on. Both of my parents were present.
I was really nervous because I didn’t know what the outcome of my SLC would be. I spoke shyly ( for the first time ever) because I was a little nervous. I think I was prepared because I remembered what to do. If I could work more I would have fixed my links. I also wish I could have spoken louder and speak more.
I think SLC’s are good for students and parents alike. I think SLC’s are helpful for students because they get to tell their parent what they need to work on. I think SLC’s are good for parents because they like their kids to admit what goals they need to work on, like not calling out or paying attention. I felt like I did good on my SLC. I like SLCs.
SLC writing reflection
The post I chose is Science fair, Science fair, Science fair. I think this is my best piece because I put a lot of thought into this post. I selected this piece because I had a lot of fun with what this topic is about. If I could write more on this topic, I would write about other science fair projects. My work is better now than at the beginning of the year, because now I can write five paragraphs, and at the beginning of the year, I was only writing three.
I learned how to reflect using links and pictures. I thought the most challenging thing to do was choosing what to put on the post.
SLC math reflection
I chose fractions because I only knew how to do fractions with food. I chose to write about fractions because I learned the most on fractions. If I could work more on this piece I would like to learn how to multiply fractions. My work is different now than at the beginning of the year because I couldn’t simplify fractions then. I have learned how to use fractions from doing that. I found it confusing to put fractions in order.
SLC Jewish Studies reflection
I chose to write about me reading Megillah for the first time. I chose to write about this because I think it was my greatest accomplishment If I could work more on this I would try and read Megillah again. My work now is different than the beginning of the year because I couldn’t read megillah back then. I learned to read Trope from doing this. I found it challenging to read it correctly.
SLC project reflection
I chose to use my frames book review on Archvillain for my best project. I think this is my best project because I took my time to work on it. I chose this piece of work because I think it is my best project. If I could work more on it, I would go into more detail explaining the book. My work now is different from that at the beginning of the year because I didn’t know how to use frames then. I learned a little more about frames from doing this piece. I found it challenging to complete this project.
SLC conduct reflection
I’m writing about my work habits. I think my strengths are participating in class and understanding the topic. I think I need to work on not calling out, listening, and taking time on my work. To stop calling out, I will raise my hand and wait until someone is done talking to talk. To take time on my work, I will slow down and pay attention to my work and check my work. To listen better, I will pay attention and not interrupt. People who can help me achieve these goals are my parents, teachers, peers, and siblings. Some stuff that might get in the way of my goals are not paying attention and someone distracting me.
SLC Goals Achieved reflection
I’m writing about what goals I accomplished and didn’t accomplish. I couldn’t read 50 books (probably because that’s almost a book a day). I’m going to try and read 15 books this nine weeks. I think I have learned a lot more than ten words this nine weeks. I’m going to try learning even more words this nine weeks. I do know and understand more Hebrew. I am going to try and speak more Hebrew this nine weeks.
The Invisible Tower by Nils Johnson Shelton
Arthur Kingfisher is a normal video game loving kid. Until a mysterious message in his video game says, “You are special, Arthur, in one weeks time you will come to me at the it.”
In one week Arthur finds himself in the Invisible Tower, a video game store with an abnormal clerk. The clerk says he is the wizard Merlin, trapped in the Invisible Tower, and Arthur is the real King Arthur brought back to life in the 21st century. A few minutes later, Arthur and Tom Thumb go on a quest for the magical sword Cleomede (the sword in the stone).
In another week Arthur and his sister, Kay, go to Serpent Mound, on a quest for the magical sword, Excalibur. Once they have Excalibur, they go on a quest to find the Lord of Sylvan, Numinae. They need to find Numinae to set Merlin free.
Can they find Numinae? Will Merlin ever be free? To find out, read the book.
Is study hall helpful? My school should have study hall. Many students at M.J.G.D.S. think they should have study hall. Some people would think study hall just gives less of an opportunity to learn. Actually, study hall helps the students learn and study. The most important thing is, study hall could help students study and better grasp the subject they were just taught. If you studied during study hall you could improve your grades.
First of all, sometimes school can be overwhelming, but a study hall could give kids a chance to study or do homework. Study hall would even eliminate any excuses of not doing homework. Students who don’t take homework seriously could do it in school, making it schoolwork.
Secondly, study hall will also allow students to fill their evenings with other activities like sports or T.V.
According to the post Floyd Dryden Essay: How study halls will help benefit you by Christina Arehart at Floyd Dryden Middle School “Some students choose to do after school activities, and then on top of that they have homework.”
Finally, study hall would even improve social skills. If children are stuck in their rooms doing homework, they can’t hang out with friends. Study hall would also allow them to have fun after school, while still doing homework. Plus, if kids do homework in school, they can get to bed earlier, allowing them to be well rested for school the next day.
Study hall sounds great to me. Do you think my school should have study hall? I think that my school should have a study hall for the benefit of the students.

Do you know what Helping and Linking verbs are? A Helping verb is a verb that helps the Action verb. Helping verbs express tense, mood, and voice. Linking verbs take the place of an Action verb. Check out this video I made.
Last week, I created a picture of a Native American shooting an arrow at a dummy. I think that my drawing is important because it shows you one of the types of weapons that Native Americans used. I chose to draw this because I think Native American weaponry is really interesting. I would like to learn about great Floridian men and women next in Florida history. I think Florida history is great.
A limerick is a form of poetry that no one’s sure where it comes from. Some people think that limericks come from the county in Ireland known as Limerick.There are 5 lines in a limerick. Lines 1,2, and 5 rhyme. Lines 3 and 4 also rhyme. Limericks are generally funny. Check out the limerick I made at www.piclits.com. Have you ever created a limerick?
Yesterday we had the science fair! There were many interesting projects. Griff and I were project partners. Our project was Rollin, Rollin, Rollin.
We had to roll different objects down a ramp and see how much they weighed and how far the rolled. Our backboard had a hypothesis, observations a. k. a. data,it had a title which was We had to write how our project relates to Isaac Newton’s second law of physics ties to our project, and an application (how our project can relate to other stuff in life). It took a lot of time and effort to do. It was really fun to do though. Griff and I even won 1st place in our class.
Winning 1st place was a big honor. I really enjoyed the science fair. One project was seeing if a corked bat was better than a normal bat.( Ryan .m’s) I loved observing so many scientific observations.Have you ever been in a science fair?
