My Goals For The New Year

My goal for the new year is to be in a high level, for reading. I also want to become good at other subjects. For example, I want to get better at math, science, social studies, writing, word work, and read out loud. Another thing I want to get better is at being a better student. I want to be a students that gets lot's of dagoes, and that does not get in trouble very often. One last thing I want to work on is my respect at home. This is what my goals are.

How Do I learn Best

Hello readers,

   I learn best when I write down notes, and draw pictures. I learn best when I read about things instead of hearing about it. I am good at spelling words. I also create pictures in my mind to understand better the story. Every day after school, I go home and I read thirty minutes.  I as well follow the directions that are told to do. It helps when the teacher explains posters and pictures that I don't under stand.  I like to write in a journal were I keep all my notes. I also like when my teacher let's me use blocks or other things, to help me out. I like connecting bit by bit to create a story in my mind. This is what I do to make my learning the best it can be.

Week Two of Exploration

Dear reader,
      It is week two and we are still on I just tend to get worse. My teeth are rotten and I have the worst breath you can imagine. My crew is still on a good health, they have a fresh minty smell.My crew is still sailing out on sea, we have been here for two weeks all ready. I the ship's surgeon have to stay away from Caleb and Raymon,I don't want them to smell my breath and then they drop flat on the ground. Now that I have the scurvy I brush my teeth extra hard, but I need a new toth brush

The Age of Exploration

My fellow comrades,
                                   It is the year we are setting sail, 1495 in the month of June. My name  is Perla. I have joined a crew that will be exploring new lands. Our ship, Santa Maria, is going to sail toward the Bahamas. I, Perla, am the ship's surgeon. I take care of the people that get ill on the Santa Maria. I have my family back home wishing me good luck. Even though I miss them I know that I still have to do the right thing. I have a good medical expertise and a good health.
                  We sail off on August first. We are sailing to find the three g's which are gold, God, and glory. We want to find the gold to become wealthy. Portugal is paying for our voyage, we will have to go sail out to the sea. We hope we can find gold, glory and Christianity. My fear is that we might get caught by the people that are exploring new lands. If they catch us they will do unexpected things. They can be more powerful than we are, and they can kill us right away.I never thought that even the most bravest lady aboard will have a fear. So as you know my fear is that we will get caught and not find what we need to become wealthy.
                   I just tend to get worse. My teeth are rotten and I have the worst breath you can imagine. My crew is still on a good health, they have a fresh minty smell.My crew is still sailing out on sea, we have been here for two weeks all ready. I the ship's surgeon have to stay away from Caleb and Raymon,I don't want them to smell my breath and then they drop flat on the ground.

Babysitting

Hello reader, I am going to post my writing and I am eager to see if you like me story. It is about babysitting. I am writing about the day when I took care of my brother and sister, hope you enjoy it once again.
-Perla


Record and upload voice >>


“Waaaaaaaaaa” I heard a voice in the room, It was loud and clear.
“Waaaaaaaaaa” I heard another voice. But this time it sounded different.
“Waaaaa, waaaaa, waaaaa!” Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh these kids are so annoying, well, I shouldn't say that, I said in my head. I stomped into the room puffing. It was my sister Brisada and my brother Daniel, they were winning like crazy. I looked over at my brother Daniel his face covered with tears and his cheeks red and puffy. I reached over and put my arms under his arms and picked him up. I picked Daniel up and got Brisada from the hand and carried them to the living room.
Knock Knock, someone was knocking.
“Who is it?” I said in a confident voice.
It me your friend.”
“Coming.”
“Can you play outside with me?”
I thought in my head, should I or should I not. I want to but I can’t, I have to babysit or I will get in trouble!
“I can’t I am taking care of my sister and brother maybe later.”
“Ok bye.”
“Bye.”
Ooooo I want to play outside so bad but I can’t.
I walked very slow to the kitchen and slowly got the bottle and filed it with milk. Turned and walked back to the living room and sat down on the soft couch.Sat Daniel on my lap, gave him the bottle, and slowly opening his mouth he reached out and grabbed it putting it in his mouth ready to take it. My brothers chubby cheeks moving up and down slowly as he drank his milk. As I watched him I thought, is being outside better than taking care of you and you sister. My eyes moved and were looking at my sister, she was closing her eyes and opening them back up. That was when I knew I had to take her to the room (and man she is heavy.) Stretching my arms I picked her up I struggled. I wiggled all the way to the room and then laid her on the bed and then took a deep breath, and then turned around and walked out the room.
Daniel was still on the couch looking at me. I said, “Now it is your turn to go to sleep. I mean you don’t have to but you haven't slept all day.” I throw myself on the couch and then looked at the baby to see if he had taken what I said seriously, and sure enough he didn’t he was laughing and sticking his tongue out at me. A while past by and the baby was getting very sleepy so I rocked him and he fall asleep. As I went to go lay him in his crib I tried tiptoeing so he would not wake up. Finally they were both asleep so that meant I could go outside and play! So I slowly opened the door and rushed outside. I was so happy! So after all taking care of Daniel and Brisada was not hard after all.
The End

Earthquake, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis

Hello reader in this science class we are learning about earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis. It sounds very fun and interesting. I can't wait.
    Earthquakes are caused when the two fault lines get stuck and can't move. They also happen when the earth has to much forces. The forces push and pull the rock beneath the earths surface. These are the things that can cause an earthquake.
   Volcanoes are vents, and they are also openings in the earth. Volcanoes are also like mountains that can erupt. A volcano can be a mountain that shoots very hot lava. It can destroy almost anything with it's steaming hot lava.
   Volcanoes change Earth's surface because when they erupt it's steaming hot lava destroys homes, cars, islands, and other things. It can also destroy are body, and that is a very dangerous thing. It changes earth's surface because it destroys our mother earth. It destroys it because it effects the earth by how it harms it.
   What determines a volcano is by how it shoots it's lava. Volcanoes can cause the rock beneath earth to change from a solid to a liquid.

The Nervous System

Hello Readers,

In science we are learning about are nerves. This is an important system in are body.

    The nervous system is important because it is the most thing that helps us. My brain revives information by what you eat and by what you do. There are also nerves that send the food, and the information to your brain. This is how your brain gets information from outside the body. Are body works with are muscles by helping it do things. The things it helps us do is eat, move, and do more things. Are brain works with are involuntary muscles by controlling are nerves. Are nervous system controls our muscles. Those are the muscles that can move with out you even thinking.

Soil Sample

My soil sample is a solution because I was trying to find how much it would weight.

Working as an Scientist: Web Quest 1

My soil sample is a mixture because I could see chex mix and skittles all mix in a bag. I do think my soil sample is a mixture.
       Before I continue to tell you about my experiment, I want to share with you some information that might be helpful. Matter comes in three different states. Those states are, liquid, solid, and gas. Matter also has different properties. Those properties are volume, mass, shape, and color. The two properties that of all the states of matter have in common are mass and volume. Mass is the amount of matter in an object. I learned this by using discovery education science tech-book. Mass is not the same thing as weight. Weight measures the force of gravity on an object. Mass is measured using a balance or a scale. The unit of measurement for mass is the gram. The mass does not change with change of location. However, the weight of an object does change, this is because the force of gravity changes, For example, the gravity on the moon is different than the gravity on Earth. A baseball will weight different on the moon than it does on Earth. However, the mass remains the same because the ball is still made up of the same amount on matter.
          Now that you have some background information lets get back to talking about my soil sample analysis. As I said earlier, I am an environment scientist. I collected a soil sample from a construction sight and analyzed it using the following process:
       
        1. I collected the soil sample.
        2. I found the mass of the entire soil sample using a scale.
        3. I seperated the contaminents from the soil
