The parent that I am most like is my dad. My dad looks like a black haired human that is about 6 feet tall, with a short beard. He smells clean, and like the outdoors. Also he is wearing gray shorts with a softball t-shirt. You can hear him watching sports, and helping me get better at softball. I think we are the most alike because we have the same sense of humor. In his free time he likes to go hunting. Another way we are the same is that we both have brown eyes. Next, we have the same taste buds because we like a lot of the same food. Also we are with each other in the summer for softball because he is my coach, and we both love animals. Finally, I am most like my dad is because we both love playing sports. This is why I am most like my dad.
These past couple of weeks in my classroom we have been learning about economics. Since we are learning about economics we have a check book and if we go below $50.00 at the end of the quarter we will have extra homework. Doing this I learned how expensive it is to pay for bills. Also to save your money in case of a unexpected emergency. Here are a few of the words we learned were supply and demand, this means how much of the product they have and demand means how many people. Another word we learn were goods. Goods means are things that people want that satisfy their needs. The last two words are services and opportunity cost. Services is doing something for someone else, and we learned what opportunity cost is by having a sale on pencils 2 for $10, or 20 Hershey Kisses for $10. The students that didn’t buy anything got $60 dollars because the didn’t spend their money. When I grow up I will be a saver because I do not like spending my money. This is what I learned so far about economics.
In 2018 my New Year’s resolution is………nothing. I don’t really care about New Year’s resolution. And if I made one I wouldn’t actually do it because I don’t care about them. When people make resolutions they want to better them self, but a lot of people don’t go thru with them. I would rather just set a goal whenever I want. This is why I don’t have a New Year’s resolution in 2018.
In the passage “Eleven” the main character does not want to be her age which is eleven. She does not want to be eleven because she doesn’t want to be treat like a kid. She feels like she is being treating like a baby is because her teacher put on a sweater that wasn’t even hers. How I know this is because it the passage, Eleven, it says, ” Today I wish I was one hundred and two instead of eleven because if I was one hundred and two I’d have known what to say when Mrs. Price put the red sweater on my desk,” That is why she doesn’t want to be eleven. If I could be any age that I wanted to be, I would be my age what I am right now which is eleven. I choose eleven because I wouldn’t want to miss a ton of stuff in my life or relive it. This is why I would choose to be 11 instead of any other age.
Would you rather go to the live in a giant gingerbread house, or ride on the polar express?
I would rather live in a giant gingerbread house. I picked this because in the movie polar express the train is really wild and you could die. Living in a gingerbread house if you got hunger you could just eat candy because that is what the house is made of. Also that I think it would be fun to see what would be in the house. What one would you rather do? This is why I would rather live in a gingerbread house instead of riding in the polar express.
My favorite superhero is Flash. If you don’t know who Flash is he is a hero that gets struck by lightening, and he has a coma for nine months and get super fast. Flash is my favorite hero because he got powers, and he use it for good and not for bad. Also that he is saving peoples’ life. Also that he lost some of his family and tried to help. Another reason he is my favorite because he is different from other superheros that they made. Finally, that he is from one of my favorite group of superheros. This is why Flash is my favorite super hero.
This question, who is your favorite person in your family and why? But I like my family all the same for different reasons. I don’t have a favorite. I love my family. Each person in my family has a different trait. I love my mom because she cares for me, and she takes me places that I want to go. I also love my dad because he helps me with softball, and he makes me laugh. I have 3 sibling named Elizabeth, Allie, and Cole. I love them all the same because they make me laugh, do stuff with me. Also that Elizabeth can take me places and we can hang out. This is my family and why I love them.
Something that I want to do is travel to other countries. I would want to do this to experience what other people in the world do. The first one I would want to travel to would be England. Also I would want to travel because I love to travel, and that you get to see different things that you never saw before. I think this would be pretty amazing. Do you? Another place I would like to travel is to Bora, Bora. I would like to go there because it seems really fun. That is something that I would like to do that I never did before.

Schools might be banning books on certain topics. Well, what I think is that they should only ban books that are inappropriate. If you are in a certain class you should keep the books that are about that topic. What do you think? Schools are now putting all their work on computers. Also, the school that I go to is now reading books on computers. For me I like having the physical book. So this is what I think. We should not ban books, and use them more. What do you think about this topic?
