Quote Analysis

“Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.” – Sally Koch

 

  • What does this quote mean to you?
  • How do you help those around you?
  • What is a “small opportunity” that you have around you to help someone else that you don’t take advantage of?  Why?

 

This quote means to me that there are more opportunities to be nice to each other. Ways you can help people around you is you can help them clean something, or anything that is helpful to them. A “small opportunity” that I have but never take advantage of is helping people with school work. I don’t take of this because then I won’t be able to get my work done. This is what this quote means to me.

Spreading Kindness

“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others.” – Dalai Lama XIV

This quote was said by Dalai Lama XIV. He is a monk of the Gelug school. He spreads kindness, and want wants to live in peace. This quote means to me that we should help people and not tear them down.  14th Dalai Lama would say this because he says his religion is kindness. He just wants everyone to be kind to each other.

“The Rose that Grew from Concrete”

“The Rose that Grew from Concrete” by Tupac Shakur
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.


 

This poem is by Tupac Shakur. What Tupac Shakur is trying to get through in this poem is that you can keep on growing has a person when you think no one is loves you, and to keep on trying. The rose symbolize the person that is reading the poem. The author tone in this poem is peaceful. This is my analysis for the poem “The Rose that Grew from Concrete”.

How do you feel about PSSA?

 Write a blog expressing your feelings about the PSSAs and standardized testing.  What do you predict will be a strength for you this year? What do you predict will be a weakness for you this year?

Every school in Pennsylvania is about to take a big test called the PSSA. It  stands for Pennsylvania System of School Assessment. It is one of the biggest test of the year for students in PA. Only 3rd graders to eighth graders take it. I am not really nervous for the PSSA because I have done it before and the test is one day shorter this year. We are taking PSSAs for math and language arts.

I think my language arts is going to be my strong suit this year because I have learned a lot of information this year, also I usually get a higher grade on my language arts PSSA than my math PSSA. My weakness in reading is spelling words correctly, and my strength is reading comprehension. My weakness for math is slope, and my strength is knowing the properties. This is how I feel about doing the PSSA.

Do You Like Poetry??

      Some people find poetry more challenging than reading a book.  Is poetry challenging to you? Why or why not? What is it about poetry that many people find challenging?

Poetry is considered one the of the most disliked literature. You may ask why; it is because it is hard for a lot of people to read. Poetry is one of the harder literature for me. It is because I only like some kinds of poetry. The poetry I like is rhyming. What people consider challenge is understanding what the poet is trying to tell the reader about. This is because poems are usually short. This is why people consider poetry hard to understand.

Review on Ocean City, New Jersey

I give Ocean City, New Jersey 4 out of 5 stars. It was a great place to spend a couple of days at with your family. But one of the days the ocean was filled with seaweed that you couldn’t go in the ocean without coming out with any seaweed on you. Their was close to hotels, and it had shops close to the ocean. It had a mini boardwalk had an arcade, stores, and some rides, but most of the stuff they sold there was over priced. Ocean City, New Jersey was less crowed then other beaches around. I would recommend to stay 1-3 days there.

Which Parent are You Most Like?

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.

Economics

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.

New Year’s Resolution

 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.

What Age Do You Want To Be?

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.
