My writing class.

Hi!
Every Friday I have writing class.  Here is a story that i wrote today:
Pink smells like strawberries, sweet and juicy. 
Red is like fire, Hot! Hot! Hot!  
Green like grass for cows.  
Brown like tree bark, hard and rough.  
Orange like the sun so bright.  
Blue like the sea. So many waves.  
Black like darkness so scary and spooky.
Light blue like the sky.  
Yellow like a dandelion flower really pretty.

Today I did How Things Work.  I learned that if you throw a ball from the 3rd floor of an window, that it starts out slow than it goes faster and faster until it hits the ground.

Merovius

Hi!
This is what I learned in The Story of the World.  The Franks settled down in Gaul next to the Roman citizens who already lived there.  Then 2 other tribes called Allemani and Burgundians came and settled down too.  Even though the Burgundians, Allemani, Roman citizens and the Franks didn't like each other a guy named Merovius joined together all of them so they could fight the Huns together.

Today I did How Things Work.I learned that you should put only the mass on some thing that your selling because in different areas there is different weights.  But everywhere there is only one mass.

This is a story I wrote from my writing class. This is a mix mach story:

    My science fair project was complete. I made a time machine, robot and a racing vehicle. I hid it in a cave  My robot, time machine and  racing vehicle were ready to show the world.   It was midnight in ancient Egypt, the Invisible Man and the Magician and the Robot who were short and lumpy were searching for a fire breathing Brontosaurus.  But they wanted to meet the President instead.  They were having trouble keeping control of my racing vehicle.  Then they found a cave and went in.  They went forward in time, only for my time machine to break.  Finally, I won the contest.  I learned that it pays off to work hard.

Hi!
For 2 weeks I am doing these songs:  Sunburst waltz, Tarantella, Shave and a haircut, Theme by Hayden and Dragon hunt.  My teacher said that if I do 10 checks for each song I will get a prize!  And if I do 15 checks for each song I will get a super prize!  Checks are when ever I do 1 song 2 times I get a check.

Today reading The Story of the World I learned about Muhammad's Vision.  Muhammad saw the angel, Gabriel and Gabriel told Muhammad that he was the messenger of the god, Allah.  So Muhammad said to everyone that there is only one god, his name is Allah.

I learned reading Sounds all Around that long ago people would use drum sounds like messages. Different drum sounds made different messages like rain clouds are forming or a new leader has been chosen.  And I learned that snakes have to put their head on the ground and feel the vibrations so he can tell that there is an enemy near by.

Monks

I read The Magic School Bus in the Time of the Dinosaurs and did Comparing Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers on Khan Academy

On Karel I got input from the user using readLine.

In chapter 3 of The Story of the World, I read about monks.  When there were no books the monks had to write them.  They made a special kind of paper called parchment.  This is how they made parchment : First they put cow or sheep skins in running water for several days .  Then they soaked it again in a barrel full of water and lime for several days more.  Finally they stretched out the skin, scrape of the hair with a knife and attach it to a frame so it can dry.  When the skin dried, they would take it of the frame and wet it again.  After that they rub it with a rough stone.  When the skin had dried it would have to be cut into rectangles folded over to make pages and stitched together to make booklets.

The Electric Field Trip

Hi!

Today I read The Magic School Bus and the Electric Field Trip.  I learned that everything is made out of atoms, and inside atoms is the nucleus and the electrons.  The nucleus makes the atom have weight and the electrons take all the other space.  When electrons run through a wire it's called an electric current. The word current comes from the words "to run".   When the electric current stops flowing from the power plant to the community it's called a blackout. When extra electrons stick to tiny droplets of water or ice in a storm, and enough of them gather in one spot they can jump from the clouds to the ground.  This is called lightning.

I also read Happy Birthday Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, and went skateboarding under the freeway on the Mountains to Sea Trail.

Beowulf the hero

Hi!
This is what i learned today;

I learned that the Celts were British warriors and the story of Beowulf the hero.  This is how it goes....
Once there was a warrior named Beowulf.  He was very strong.  Sometimes the other warriors would go to fight the giant, Grendel.  But every time they went to see Grendel he would eat them all up when they were sleeping.  Then Beowulf went to fight Grendel with his men.  Then Grendel  tried to eat one of Beowulf men and Beowulf twisted Grendel's arm and the arm fell off!  Grendel ran out of the room and drowned in a lake.

I learned how to indent the code on karel. First you indent the top code then the code insid that code and then the code inside that code and you keep doing that until you don't have any code left. The last code should be indented the most.

While loops

Hi!
Today I learned while loops on Karel. A while loops makes the thing you typed go over and over again and makes the stuff stop when something you typed is true. A while loops look like this:

 while (frontIsClear( )){
            putBall( );
            move( );
}

This week i am doing Boxcar Rumble and A Day at the Carnival for piano.

I learned on How Things Work an object that is in motion stays in motion and if you push against a skater and I push against the same skater at equal force the skater will not go anywhere.

In the Story of the World I learned that when people first made pyramids they were white. And the Romans called the Visigoths, Vandals, Huns, Goths and Ostrogoths barbarians.

If statements, Inertia

Hi!
Today I learned if statements in Karel.  If statements are thing like if you have the ball move two times. Or else if you don't have the ball turn left. This is what an if statement and looks like:


if (haveBall) {
    move();
    move();
}
else{
    turnLeft();
}

I learned science on How Things Work. I learned that a thing that is still stays still unless you push it. It is called Inertia. If you put some stuff on the table with a cloth on the table and you put the cloth off the things will stay in the same spot they have always been.

I did spelling on page 64 in Why Johnny Can't Read.
