In our reading class we had to read a book in a book club that our teacher chose for us. The book I had to read was Olive's Ocean by Kevin Henkes. Then she told us to make a video about it. I hope you enjoy my book buzz video!
Our class did a unit on explorers and each student chose an explorer to study. I chose Francisco Pizarro to study. They showed us this website called Narrable which we can make videos. It was really easy and fun to use. I hope you enjoy my video!
Today we had a celebration for our dads. Father’s dad was awesome because we could be with are dads the whole day. I liked it because we could show are dad what are school is like today. I also liked it because we could show them what we learned. I think that this Father’s day celebration is one of the best.
The reason that writers write a lot of persuasive essays is because we want to let the reader know how we feel, and to convince them to feel how we feel. Another reason we would write persuasive essays is because there may be a rule that you don’t like and should go. For example, if you think that you should be able to blow out candles for you birthday in the classroom, and then you could right one about that. If you wanted to tell people about your favorite place to get food write one about that. There are many more ways that persuasive essays are effective then I mention before. Persuasive essays are a way to make people think what we think, and without them no one would be on your side.
I looked at a piece I did at the beginning of the year for mistakes (the piece is called small moment story). I saw a lot of unpunctuated compound sentences, and subordinating conjunctions. When I fixed them I saw a lot of simple sentences, so I chanced some to advanced sentences. I also saw that my ending was not strong so I fixed that too. Then I looked at it after my work and liked a lot better.
”Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life,” a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was born on October 11,
1884 in her home state of New York, New York. Eleanor Roosevelt’s mother died in 1892 when Eleanor was 8 years old.
Eleanor’s father died 2 years later when Eleanor was 10 years old. Eleanor went to a boarding school in London, England when she was 14 because she did not have a father or mother. The school in England helped her become less shy and it was a good experience for her.
In 1905, Eleanor Roosevelt married Franklin Roosevelt’s Eleanor’s dad’s 5th cousin. Very soon after Eleanor and Franklin got married they had 6 children Anna, James, Franklin (who died as an infant), Elliott, Franklin Jr. and John.
After Eleanor Roosevelt’s husband got polio in 1921. Eleanor began to help her husband Franklin with his political career. When her husband became president of the U.S.A. in 1933, she changed the reputation and job of the first lady.
The reason Eleanor Roosevelt was important was because she gave a voice to the unprivileged and helped with the Human Rights. Eleanor became active in public service during World War II; she was working for the American Red Cross.
Eleanor Roosevelt’s husband died in April 12, 1945. When her husband died she thought her public service was over instead the opposite happened and she was the chair of the U.N.’s Human Rights, she also wrote many books. Eleanor Roosevelt died on November 07, 1962.
Eleanor Roosevelt said many quotes. Here are two of them, “A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water,” and “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do,”
