Spring and Fall

Here are some similarities and differences between Spring and Fall.  Spring is usually flooding with green. Unlike Spring, fall is usually red, orange, yellow and brown.  Leaves will start falling during Fall, instead, new leaves form during Spring. Although Spring and Fall are so different, they are also the same.  In both seasons, it rains a lot. Both are moderate temperatures, and bothe have a Holiday with candy. These are the many similarities and differences of Spring and Fall.   

Genius Hour 1 2018-2019

Heloooooooo!

So, in school we are doing something called Genius Hour.  Genius Hour is when we can learn about almost anything we want to!

I’m doing my Genius Hour on animating canines!  (Wolves, coyotes, foxes, dogs, etc.)  So far I have a few resources.  I’m not super good at drawing canines, but I’m OK…

  This is one of my okay drawings of a fox hybrid thing running…  It’s not super good, but it’s okay.

My goal is to be able to draw and animate canines realistically.

The Non-related Relations

Did you ever hear about the 10,000 hour rule?  How long do you play video games for? If you’ve never heard about the 10,000 hour rule, here’s what it is:  The 10,000 hour rule is where you spend a certain amount of time a day to study, or practice something. Then after 10,000 hours, usually 10+ years, you have mastered the skill.  Hey, about the video games, did you know that most kids ages 0-8 use devices for 2 hrs 19 mins, and kids ages 8-12 use devices for 4 hrs 36 mins!? That’s a lot of time used on screens, but I used a computer to write this blog post, so it’s not all bad.

 

Now you may be wondering, how do the 10,000 hour rule and kids’ screen time even relate to each other?  Well, if you spend to much time on video games, then you won’t have time for the 10,000 hour rule, so if you want to achieve your goal, cut down on screen time!  If now I persuaded you to use the 10,000 rule, (even though this is meant to inform you), don’t worry about practicing for 10,000 hours, you can master something in less time than that!  (Depending on the thing you want to master.) Anyways, now that this is over you can stop reading.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I said you can stop reading, THE END!

About Me 2018-2019

Hello!  My name is Kate.  I was born February 16, 2007. I have 1 brother named Finn, and three cats,named Pickle, Squeak, and Rocky, a bunny named Pipkin, and a fish named Ethelbert.  My favorite school subjects are ELA and Art. My least favorite school subject is NOTHING. One of the skills I am good at is drawing animals, and one of the skills I am not good at is drawing people.Three things I love are my family, my friends, and my pets.  Three things I fear are daddy long-legs, bad dreams, and clowns. If my family was a noise, it would sound like random talking. If the world was made of food it would taste like chocolate, (and if the moon was made of food it would taste like cheese.)

 

 If I could meet three people from the past they would be a caveman, Neil Armstrong, and Franklin Roosevelt.  The animal I most resemble now is a human. The smell that best describes my home is rabbit. The colour that best tells how I usually feel is blue.  If I could have anything I wanted it would be an unlimited amount of wishes. The thing I would like to change most in the world is people harming animals.  If I could live anywhere, I would live in Maine. Something I would like you to know about me is that I love animals a lot.

Chapter 1: A Special Message

 

 

One day in Hollowtown Kate was walking to her best friend, Summer’s house, to work on a science project about the human brain that was due in two weeks.  She walked and walked until she got to Summer’s house.

 

When Kate got to the front door she did their secret knock and waited for an answer.  “Come in Kate!,”  yelled Summer, “It’s unlocked!”

 

Kate walked into Summer’s huge house.  She saw Summer trying to gait her dog, Hazel, into the kitchen.  When Summer was done, both friends walked upstairs into Summer’s room.

 

When they got upstairs into Summer’s room, Kate started complaining.  “It’s hot in here!”  She complained.  

 

“Let me open a window,” replied Summer.

 

“Thats better,” they both said at the same time.

 

Just as they were getting started on the project, a paper airplane flew through the opened window.  It landed on top of Summer’s bunkbed, Summer went to go get it.

 

“It’s a note!”  Summer said surprised.  

 

“Well, what are you waiting for?  Read it!” Kate said excitedly.  

 

“Ok,” says Summer.

 

I am inviting you two to come to Summer’s attic at dusk so you can have a dream job as dream monitors, please try to come at dusk or 5 and less minutes after dusk starts, or I may not be there.  Come today or else you may not get the job, For this is a very important and special job , and you were the best people I could find for the it.  

      -The Dream Sprite

 

“Wow”, says Summer, “Can you please keep track of time Kate?”  

 

“Yes”, Kate replies.

 

At dusk the two friends unlocked the attic door, and went up the stairs to the very cold attic.  Once they got up there they saw something amazing, extraordinary, out of this world, a real live sprite!
