Opinion Writing: Jacksonville is the best place to live

Jacksonville is the best place to live because of the significant weather, if you need support they are there, and because there is good military. ¨Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody¨. this quote is created by Jane Jacobs.  


My first reason is that of the tropical weather. Jacksonville is the best place to live because there is no snow. It does not snow because of Florida’s low latitude and subtropical climate. Jacksonville is the best place to live because it is mostly sunny. The sunny days are the most fun because you get to play in the sun. And go with friends and play fun games. Jacksonville is the best place to live because there are only three seasons. The three seasons are Spring, Summer, and Winter. It is easier because you don’t have to buy the clothes for Spring, Summer, and Winter.


   Another reason Jacksonville is the best place to live that when you need support. For example, if you were in a fire a person supports you by donating food and money to you. Jacksonville is the best place to live because we have a lot of places to donate food and money. Like the food bank holds food if you are impoverished. Jacksonville is the best place to live because some people help you if you don’t have a full battery. For example, my dad saw a woman with a lifeless car battery and he went over and secured the wire up to the car and charged the battery.


My end reason is Jacksonville is the best place to live because there are good Military bases. If people came to attack us then the Military base would get a notification and send in troops to help us would be there in a second.  That’s why there are good military bases. Another military base there. The county is called Orange Park. it is known for its Military Bases. Jacksonville is the best place to live because all of the police officers are kind. For example, I used to be scared of police officers because I thought they would take me to jail. But when I actually met one they told me they would protect me from bad guys and he told me if I need protecting call 911.

Field Trip: Fort Caroline National Memorial

For a field trip, we went to Fort Caroline National Memorial. In Fort Caroline, there was a museum of the Timucua Indians. In the museum, there was a big staff lot of arrowheads and there was a wood burnt canoe. Then we got a demonstration of what the French and Spanish wore. Then we got shown a tool used for hunting before bows and arrows.


After that, we went to a Timucua village and played there then we went to the fort and played in the fort we had to read 2 paragraphs on the little stands. I read about the bloody Masquerade. The Bloody Masquerade talks about the attack on the French settlers by the Spanish. In conclusion, Fort Caroline was very fun.

Golden Age of Piracy

Pirates are people who sailed the seas and steal from other ships and people. Not all pirates were killers. There were some girl pirates like Anne Bonny. Most pirates liked to pillage and plunder villages but some don’t. Most people think that pirates loved to fight but they didn’t like it because even a minor cut could lead to a big infection. And they didn’t have doctors so it was worse. The prisoners are set free to tell myths and legends to scare other people from the pirates.


We learned that Pirate flags represent a Pirates crew and the people. Pirates used to trick people by putting up a nice flag and then when a another ship comes closer the pirates put up the skull and crossbones. The skull and crossbones represents an aggressive crew or pirate. I created a flag to trick people. My flag had a smiling skull and two hearts beside the skull.

My Hanukkah Coding Project

You might notice a lot of other kids have there Hanukkah coding thing up, but I don’t have it up. I didn’t really like doing the coding. Coding is not really my thing and when I heard that we were going to do coding I first I thought that it was going to be fun. But when we got into it, it started to get really hard and I started to not like it. We used the tool Scratch and coded a Hanukkah google doodle. What I thought I did well was I tried to keep a positive attitude while I tried to get it together. What I think I can do better is to try to use more resources and pay more attention.

I am Thankful for


I am thankful for trees because they give us oxygen and fresh air. I am thankful for family because without a family I would be nothing they are so supportive. I am thankful for a kind community because they protect us from harm. I am thankful to be free in America because in other countries they don’t have freedom of religion but America does. I am thankful for teachers because if we did not have teachers there would be no knowledge in the world a light would not be invented.

Today was the opening and closing of the Magical Cafe. I was kitchen staff it was hard at first but it got easier as more  people were coming. We had many types of food. We worked as a team to accomplish the cafe. all the money we earned went to tsedakah. There was more than $225.00 that we earned from the work.
