These are four symbols I chose to create my Florida state seal.  The first symbol I used was the sun because Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State.  The second symbol I chose was the orange because Florida grows a lot of oranges and because it’s Florida’s state fruit.  The third symbol I used is orange juice because Florida produces a lot of orange juice and it’s Florida’s state beverage.  The fourth symbol I chose is the mockingbird because the mockingbird is Florida’s state bird. I made the mockingbird flying in the sky. The sun is shining down on the oranges. There’s a river flowing through the middle of the picture with grass on both sides. On the left is an orange tree and a table with orange juice on it.

Today we opened a cafe for a morning!  It sure was tough but it was really fun!  I was a waiter and our parents were our customers.  We had Banana Bread, Breakfast Casserole, Pancakes, Apple Walnut Greek Yogurt Dip with fresh fruit, Blueberry Muffins, and Fresh Fruit Salad.  The jobs were kitchen staff  host/hostess waiter/waitress and cashier.  It was an great adventure and I learned so much.  I learned to be patient to be a good listener.  Now when I go to a restaurant I will be patient and a good customer.

If your wandering what Yom HaAtzmauot is  I`ll tell you, Yom HaAtzmaut is Israel`s indpendence day.  Last week was Yom HaAtzmaut and we had stations at school, and my favorite station was the eating station. We had falafel and a chocolate wafer bar, and it was delicious!!!!!!.  My 2nd favorite station was P.E because it was really fun playing knockout and soccer.    I`m so glad we had stations:)                                                           

Parshat Bo is one of my favorites because it is very cool to me that the Jews made matzo in 18 minutes.  The reason matzo is flat is because they did not let it rise and they could make it faster.  The reason that the Jews needed to make it faster is because they were afraid that the Egyptians were going to come after them and Pharo was going to change his mind. They didn’t want to stay and be slaves anymore. This is why we only eat matzo on Passover.  I like matzo with marror. 

Why 3rd graders should have their own Ipads.


I think it would be awesome if 3rd graders had Ipads. You can trust me! I know that 3rd graders would love to do work with Ipads and I am a 3rd grader. If 3rd graders had their own Ipads it would probably be a little bit calmer. Everyone would have their own Ipad so we wouldn’t need to share.

We wouldn’t need any note books because we could use note book apps on the Ipad. That would save paper. Also we wouldn’t need any math books because we could actually use a note book app to do math on the Ipad.

What if it is time for recess and it’s raining? You could play on your Ipad . Also you’ll probably learn about the Ipad and you could help your family and class mates if their having trouble you could help them.

I hope you agree with me! Ipads are amazing!!
