Ocean City Maryland is a great place to go on vacation. They have a boardwalk and wonderful hotels. When I went there I had a great time. I went boogie boarding the ocean. And had some great food to. I have been going there ever since I was young and I loved it. Every time we go to Ocean City we go to Phillips Crab House. They have amazing food and it is not very far away from the boardwalk. Ocean City Maryland is not to far away from PA. Maybe a 2 hour drive. At the end of the boardwalk there is an amusement park. It has all kinds of different rides and games. It even has a Ripley’s Believe it or Not. So if you want to go to an amazing vacation, that is the one you want.
We have been learning about economics for a few weeks. Now is your chance to tell us everything you know about economics! Tell each other what you know about goods, services, opportunity cost, supply and demand, etc. Talk about how your classroom checkbook and finance lessons have helped you gain more perspective to economic issues. Will you be a saver or spender when you grow up? Why is it important to save for a “rainy day?” This blog post will be graded and if possible, please print it out with your name on it! Happy saving/spending!
So today I am going to talk about economics. To me learning about economics is interesting. I like seeing how it evolved and studying for the upcoming test. Anyways, right now we have a checkbook. We get a paycheck every 2 weeks. The paycheck is about $879. And every month we pay bills like, water bill, electric bill, cable bill, phone bill, rent, and gas. We can also earn money in more ways than 1. But I won’t get into that for now.
One thing we learned about is needs and wants. Needs are required. Wants are desired. An example would be, you need food and water, but you don’t need filet mignon (Want). Another thing we learned about is supply and demand. Supply is how much of that good or service is available. And demand is how many people want to buy that good or service.
It is important to save for a “rainy day” because if you spend all of your money on something that you don’t need or want, you won’t have money left if you start to get lots of bills. Medical bills can get very high in price. And since you got that high priced thing you don’t have enough money to pay them. If you would’ve saved that money you could have payed the bills quickly and start saving more money. I want to be a saver when I grow up. I will get stuff I want, but just make sure I can pay for other things that I need to pay, like bills.
♥My first best friend was my brother. Since he is no longer living he has taught me that I am a very strong individual and can get through the obstacles in my life. He is a very sweet kind person and loved to play Mario. He also had strawberry colored hair if you see it in the sun like mine. He had the brightest smile you would ever see. He taught me a lot. My mom thinks he is the reason why I started talking so early because I would hear him talking. Or just because I love to talk. He also loved sports. He would play them all the time. He played basketball for Upward. That is who my first best friend is.♥
My memorable experience is ……. my cabin!
This was awhile ago. But it is very memorable. So my cousin got hurt really bad because of scootering down a steep hill. She knocked her 2 front teeth out. And she broke her arm. And we were at the cabin. And since she was just getting used to her new fake teeth, she had trouble speaking. And it was hard to understand her. But somehow in my magical ways I was 1 of the 3 people who could understand her. So I would be walking around with her and she started talking to my uncle. I would translate. But one thing she said made him laugh a lot. But I totally forgot what she said. I just remember my uncle laughing hysterically.
What is your most memorable Summer Experience?
The author doesn’t like being eleven because it feels just like any other age. It doesn’t do anything. It is just a number. Also she had a horrible day at school on her BIRTHDAY. That was probably very hard to go through. If I could choose any age it would be 5. I chose 5 because:
- YOU ARE IN KINDERGARTEN
- I LOVE Kindergarten
- Plus you are young and you don’t have many worries
- And you don’t have to go to school the whole day!!!!!!!
The question was would you rather go to Bethlehem or go to the North Pole. I chose BETHLEHEM!
I chose Bethlehem because:
The post for this week is if I think there will ever be a female president. Well…… Yes! If you are wondering, why Kaylie,there has never been a female president ever!
Last time we voted for the president Hilary Clinton was soooooo close to becoming the first female president. But just by a little Donald J. Trump beat her. Also, there is 3 million + people in the USA. One of these years we are bound to have a female president. I would vote for one, not just because I am a girl, but we need more different ideas to see what women can come up with other than men.
What do you think about this?
This weeks post is what family member is your favorite or special to you. I chose my brother. His name is Ryan! He past away when I was in 1st grade. He was only 8. And I thought I would make a whole blog post about him. Why is he my most special family member you might ask? Well, he always made me laugh and he was my older brother. Who doesn’t like a older sibling? Some traits that I hope I have from him is his spirit. Like, his sense of humor and his intelligence. Like I said in the beginning about when when he past he donated all of his organs except for his brain to children who need them. I thought that was pretty awesome. And someone in this world has an organ from my brother! Thanks for reading! See Yah!!!!
P.S. If you are wondering why the text is blue, it was my brothers favorite color!
A thing I would like to do that I ahve never done before is…………. BECOME A MILLIONARE! CHA-CHING! I want to be a millionare because…..
- I can live a life where I have no worries
- I can pay my bills off in good time
- I can help my family with things like injuries and other things
- Plus I would love to live in a mansion
And what do you want to do that you have never done before?
“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” – Christopher Reeve
- What does this quote mean to you?
- Going back to what we discussed at the beginning of this unit, name two traits a hero should have and why they need those traits.
- Who in your own life do you consider a hero? Why?
- Name one person from history that has the qualities of a hero? Why would you pick that person?
To me the quote means do whatever you can for someone else even if the obstacles are overwhelming. I think that a hero has to have special traits. They need to be brave, strong with obstacles, and needs to have perseverance through the hard times . I know they should have those traits because then they couldn’t get through the hard things you will face. I consider my mom a hero because even when she messes up she perseveres through it all. And when my brother passed away she stayed strong and got through it. I think that Rosa Parks is a hero because when she got on that bus and sat down and wouldn’t move she persevered even when someone said to not do it. When she was showing what was right. Thanks everyone! I have a question for you now, do you think that you are a hero for yourself?
