Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai

I made a Frames project about Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai with my classmate Cayla C. We used Chabad.org‘s article about Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. I enjoyed doing this project.  I liked using Frames. It is an easy tool to work with. It was easy to find information and to create the Frames. However, there were some problems.   

     We tried recording our voices saying what we wrote, but we didn’t have time to record everything. One of the hardest things to do was finding pictures, especially of people. One of our classmates who was supposed to help us didn’t do anything at all.  I kept getting distracted talking. Next time, I think we should movies where we act. That might be better to work on than an online project.

Math, Chapter 11- How we can use These Lessons in Everyday Life

My Pre-Algebra class is finishing up chapter 11. It is called “Graphing Lines”. Well, in this post I am going to state all of the lessons that we learned in this chapter and state how we can use them in our life.

11-1: Graphing Linear Equations                                                                                                      You could use this lesson to find out if the equation of the items you sold and the money you made is linear.

11-2: Slope of a Line                                                                                                             If you were a scientist who tracks how much mountains have been changed by erosion, you could use this lesson.

11-3: Using Slopes and Intercepts                                                                                      When you’re an accountant for a shipping business and you need to graph how much it will cost to graph an item that costs q pounds, then you could try this lesson.

11-4: Point-Slope Form                                                                                                                          Bamboo is a fast-growing plant. It can grow 3 feet or more in 24 hours. You can use this lesson to see how much a bamboo plant has grown in 5 days, when it is now q feet tall and was 1 inch tall on day 1.

11-5: Direct Variation                                                                                                                Say you have an recipe for bread. The amount of ingredients in the recipe increase according to how many people you are serving. you can use this lesson to find out if the recipe shows direct variation.

11-6: Graphing Inequalities in Two Variables                                                                You can use this lesson to find out if a vehicle can make one round trip around a park according to the miles per gallon it gets and how big its gas tank is.  

We did not learn 11-7.

Jake (My Bio-Poem)


Creative, Fun, Interesting, Bookworm, Smart, Jewish, Nice

Brother of Lucy (6), Kagan (5), Reba (3)

I love Judaism, Using Electronics, Reading

I feel happy when I read, spend time with true friends, and upset when I’m betrayed

I need food, water, shelter

I give tzedkah, good deeds, and advice

I fear painful death, getting in trouble, and being lonely

I would like to travel the world, be a good Jew, and be successful in life

I share what’s on my mind, jokes, and almost anything

I am 11, 4 ft. 5, and a Homo Sapien Sapien

I am a resident of Jacksonville, Florida, The Untied States of America, and Earth.

Hobbit Dreams

If I were a Hobbit

I’d live in the Shire

I’d celebrate my 114th birthday

And meet Bilbo Baggins

(If he’s still alive)


I would be a proud 4 ft. 3

and cause mischief with Merry and Pippin

After all, it is my destiny


I could play riddles with Gollum

and desolate Smaug with the dwarves

or become part of the Fellowship

and explore, explore, explore


I could fight Orcs and Uruk-hai alike

or become a knight of Gondor

I could become Frodo’s gardener

or a soldier of Rohan


I could possess the One Ring

and withhold from its temptation

But, amidst the battle

Have excellent participation


But of course

I could do the things a hobbit does best;

eat as much (with a munch) as a large, large, horse!
