Last Friday, my teacher showed us a knew way of learning, its called SOLE. SOLE stands for self, organized,learning, and environment. SOLE came from a TED winning professor at M.I.T.. Me friends and I made a poster about a question. The question was what is this building and why is it broken. Well, we did know what the building was, it was the Roman Colosseum. And we also had the answers but we didn’t have the time to put it on. Although, planning the poster was what went well but again, we didn’t do it. I learned that the Colosseum had a theory how it got destroyed. Next time, I will join a group that I won’t fool around with or they’ll fool around with.For grade, I would giveand my team a C+ because we didn’t get so far with our poster.

Do you think art has education? Many people think art is just a way of expressing yourself. Yes, art expresses yourself but art also helps with language arts and math skills. Some schools have short art classes, other schools don’t even have art. Those schools should have at the most 50 minutes of art once a week.
I think every school should have art because art has math like fractions, geometric shapes, symmetry, and measurement. Modern art is mostly geometric shapes, such as the art by Piet Mondrian. Students all over the world study and copy his work.
Art is like language arts. It describes adjectives, explanations, and vocabulary. When an artist creates their work, they usually have an explanation for it. One of my favorite artists is Romero Britto. He is a pop culture artist. The New York Times described his work as, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.” Many people use descriptive words to tell about art.
But most of all art has creativity like using your imagination, mental thinking ( plans for idea), and inspiration. Kids need that creativity for a better future.
How you can help
You should persuade friends ( like a team) and then convince others for art or, if you are an adult you can persuade even a principal or friends that art education should be in all schools.
These are other people that agree for more art.
I would recommend this video for second graders and younger. This is a video explaining what a verb is. My friend Griff and I made this video on a app called Frames. While you watch this video you will see and hear some examples and explanations of verbs with a little humor. I hope you enjoy this video!
Do you know what a limerick is? A limerick is a poem about silliness. They start with five lines. line one and two both have a rhyming ending. Lines three and four have a different rhyming ending. But line five has the same rhyming ending as lines one and two.
Limericks are a little confusing when you hear it, but when you do it it`s more simple and fun. My limerick is a story about a poor guy named Dave that lived in a cave. I made this poem because I thought of a cave, then Dave and I was playing minecraft. This is the story of Dave.
Once there was a man named Dave.
That lived in a dark and scary cave.
Then he heard deep harsh growl.
He also saw the scary creature prowl.
Sadly, he was never,ever saved.

Last night was the Science Fair at my school. There were lots of different projects and people. The projects were made by students from third grade up to eighth grade. The winners of the science fair were: Aaron K in first place, Joey P and Ryan M in second place, and Shelby W in third place. My project was about Bernoulli’s principle. Bernoulli’s principle is about wind flow ( like how planes work). I worked with my friends Parker B and Zach M to make this awesome project. Sadly, I did not win a trophy. I learned from this experience that you should not be in such a hurry that you have like about three weeks left. You should always take your time.
My favorite project was my sister Cayla’s. She built a maze for hamsters and mice to prove if a mouse is smarter than a hamster. I also liked Rachel O’s project. Her project was about the amount of watts that you need to light a light bulb. I thought her display was really cool.
The night ended with a show called Chill. They used dry ice and made a cool way to make matter with it. There was bubbles, steam, and fire blowing. I thought the show was awesome. If you ever been to a science fair, how was your experience?
Do you know what a cinquain is? It is a very odd name but it is a type of poem that has two syllables at the beginning,four syllables in the second row, six syllables in the third row, eight syllables in the fourth row, and two syllables for the fifth row.There are many other ways but I choose to do this way.
My ciquain is describing a type of dinosaur that is very strong. I wrote this because I absolutely love all- sorts of dinosaurs. Do you have a (some) favorite dinosaur(s)? Guess what kind of dinosaur I am describing.
Such harsh reptile
Eating non – stop, furious might
Hint: it is a carnivore, it is very big but not the biggest, it is known as a dinosaur named Sue. Who am I?
