The One and Only Ivan

About a month ago we read The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.  It’s about a gorilla that was captured and shipped to a mall with his sister who unfortunately did not make it. Ivan lived with the mall owner and was treated like a baby. Later when Ivan got too big he was put in a cage in the mall. Ivan makes friends with a dog named Bob and an elephant named Stella. Stella was in a circus and hurt her leg. Sadly Stella gets sick and unfortunately passes away. Before that the owner buys another elephant named Ruby and Ivan and Stella are friends until like I said Stella passes away. One of Ivan’s human friends Julia gives him finger paint and Ivan is an artist. This is a true story and you can buy Ivan’s paintings.

A Letter to Percy Jackson

My letter to Percy Jackson to invite me on his quest would be: Dear Percy, I would like to come on your quest because I have read your books and I know how you’ve fought multiple monsters and survived. I live in Jacksonville Fl so I would have to go across the country to get to New York. I’m not half- blood so I don’t have any magic items (that I know of.) In the four books I’ve read about you I know that most monsters are in Miami. Fortunately I live in Florida so I’m close to Miami (well I’m not to close. Takes about six hours to get there from where I am. I hope you invite me on your quest.

From, Madelyn

Behind the scenes

The past few weeks my class and I made a parody video of Up Town Funk by Bruno Mars. It was really fun to make and it turned out great. I would like to thank Mrs. Emily because we couldn’t have done this with out her. The parody video is called Upstairs Fun. I would also like to thank my classmates for being a great cast. Here is the full version and I hope you like it!
