Today we went to Zoomars.  We saw guinea pigs, rabbits, alpacas, llamas, goats and an ostrich.  We rode on horses.  There were three sizes, small, medium and large horses.  I went two times on the medium one.    When my friend fed a carrot to the alpaca, it burped and got carrot all over her forehead.  We fed the guinea pigs, rabbits, goats and an ostrich. There was a ball-pit with dried corn kernels in it.  There were a lot of babies playing in it.  We also went on a train that went around in circles. There was a playground too.  First you climb up a ladder then you go across a bridge then go down a slide.

Redwood trees

Yesterday I did Ordering Fractions on Khan Academy.

I watched Climbing Redwood Giants.  I learned that the redwood trees drink the fog as water and that there are a lot of salamanders in the redwood trees.  Salamanders  have to be wet so they stay up there.  And I learned that the people who want to cut down the trees spray blue paint on the trees.

My PE work sample


Every month I meet with my Sky Mountain teacher and talk about what I did for the month and give work samples for Math, History, Science, PE, and Language Arts.  This is what I wrote for my PE work sample:

"I am going to Atlanta because my Aunt is having a wedding.  I'm doing two dances with my cousins.  One of the dances goes like this:  first you clap two times and scratch the air two times.  For your feet you jog in place.  Do that three times.  The step after that is when you swing your arms back and forth 14 times.  While you are doing that, march in place.  Then do the clap, clap, scratch, scratch move again one time and after that, point up and move you hips.  Do that again.  The next move is when you push down with your arms and kick with your foot.  Then do it with your other foot with your arms up instead of down.  Then you clap two times and scratch two times.  That is the first song in the performance."

I finished The Tail of Emily Windsnap.  It's about a girl who turns into a mermaid because her dad is a merman.  So she is a mermaid and a human.  Her dad went to prison because humans and merpeople are not supposed to get married.  Emily found him and talked to Neptune.  Neptune said they could take her dad out, but they were supposed to  live somewhere else.

I read a book about the penguins that live on the Galapagos Islands.  They are called the Galapagos penguins. These penguins are tame.  They are not scared of people because we have been nice to them and feed them. Some people hunted them but they were sill friendly The Islands are near the Equator that's why it is hot there. They spread their wings and face the wind to cool off.

Penguins can’t fly because one time they knew how to fly and they flew somewhere. Then they learned how to swim so they couldn’t fly back. When penguin chicks hatch they are gray, fuzzy and blind. The chicks stay with their parents 30 days until they fledge. Fledging means when they learn to swim. Galapagos penguins are 21 inches and almost 5 pounds.  The males are bigger but that's the only difference between male and female Galapagos penguins.

Writing class

Today I had writing class.  Here is a story that I wrote called The Story of Lily Rainbownose:

Lily Rainbownose was always being made fun of because her nose was so big and rainbowy, otherwise she was normal.  One day she decided to run away.  She packed her pj's, her clothes, her toothbrush .......  But the last hing Lily packed was a picture of her mom, dad and sister Silvia Rainbownose.  She ran away just then and stomped out the door.  She ran to the park but then she said in her mind ''Maybe I should face the bully's.''  So she did.  And every one liked her now.

Today I did Soccer and piano.  My brother has soccer at 4:15.  I have soccer at 4:45.  While my brother was in soccer I used a thing were you strap the ball in it and kick it.  you use it for kicking far so it comes back to you and you don't have to chase the ball.

For soccer we got points for what we do good and for how many times you did something with your pretend team.  At the end I got 22 points, and for a prize I got putty.  Next week we're going to do it again.
