Going on a Road trip!

Last night I got back from Philadelphia. Me, my sister and my dad went on a road trip to  Philadelphia to visit my grandparents there. I saw the liberty bell and I also went to the Franklin Institute and went to the Lego exhibit. There were people made out of Legos and there was even a T. rex made out of Legos! There were more things made out of Legos but the one’s I said were the coolest. I went to my Aunt’s house in New Jersey for a wedding party in the backyard and I got at least ten mosquito bites and a really uncomfortable one on my piggy toe.

TinyTap and VoiceThread

To get better at speaking Hebrew my class uses one website and one app.  The app is called TinyTap you can make games and make activities like shape puzzles and you can record yourself.  In VoiceThread you can make posts that someone can respond/answer to.

 

TinyTap helped me because I like fun things that help me learn.

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!

When I write a Book

When I write a  book it will be called The Adventures of Bob the Pickle. It’s about a family of pickles named Bob, Shirley, Lily, Dilly, Billy, Milly, Willy, and Ryan the butler. The family lives in a castle and they are the royal family of Pickleville.  Here is a sneak peek:on the coronation day when the minister was about to crown Bob  he shouted humans!

 

When I Put someone else’s needs before mine

I put someone else’s needs before mine when I read to my sister when my mom’s napping. An example is I can practice my guitar before my sister goes to bed so I don’t wake her up. Another example that is true is when I’m done with dinner I wait for my parents to finish before I get dessert. Another way I can put someone’s needs before mine is feeding my fish breakfast and dinner before I eat. (Even though I forget and my dad feeds him.)

If I could give anything to someone

If I could give anything to my cousin I would give him a puppy. I would give him a puppy because he would probably snuggle with it. Another person I would give anything to is Lily. I would give her another cat. I would give her another cat because she has one and they could be friends.
