On Monday I did book club and I did scooter tricks. I practiced my bunny hops on my scooter. I practiced bonelesses. I did gymnastics class and Intermediate Math. That’s it for Monday.
On Tuesday morning I did book club, Spanish and I played outside. I played a little on my scooter.
On Wednesday I facilitated Change Up with Liberty. I did math. I practiced gymnastics a little and I did a handstand into a backbend.
On Thursday I did the hike and art. I solved rubics cubes with Gabe.
Today I went on the bike ride with Charlotte and Nancy and Elisha, Andew, Tessa, Michael, Liberty and Natalie. I did book club. I’m sorry the blog has caught up to us in real time and bye!
On Monday, I did intermediate math. It was fun and Luke came for the first time and I think he had fun. Then I went to the park, then I traveled into a different world. Both of those were awesome. This Monday was so rainy. Karyn taught Spanish for the first time. I liked it better than when Gabriel and Samari taught it. It was really fun. I want her to teach more often.
On Tuesday I did book club and it was awesome like normal. I can’t really describe this story, but it was the same book I told you about last week. It was really good. I also went with the flow. I did anatomy and physiology and it was fun. I loved massaging people at anatomy and physiology. I also played outside.
On Wednesday I did Change Up. It was normal. I ate a few jelly beans. I did math. We multiplied fractions. I did book club and I played banana tag.
On Thursday I went to Freedom Park. I skateboarded. I played on the panthers exercise equipment. I played with my hand spinner and that’s it.
On Friday I did book club, same book. Then I biked to the recyclery. Then we checked the donut shop next door but they were sold out because of some party. Then we biked to Joe’s Doughs and they were sold out. Then we biked to school and I got tired after I ate lunch upstairs at about 12:50. Now I’m too tired and we’ve caught up to real time so goodbye.
The reason this is called “Visitors Week” is because visitors from the ALC in New York came to school.
On Tuesday, oh by the way no school Monday so that’s why I skipped it, so back to Tuesday. I did book club. We’re reading a new book. It’s one that Kate’s dad wrote and it was really good at the beginning. I went to the park and I did clean up. Then I did Anatomy and Physiology. We learned about the heart. At A&P we took tennis balls and Rachel drilled holes in them and then filled them with red food dye liquid water stuff and then we squeezed the tennis balls and the blood came out and we had to imitate our heartbeat with that.
On Wednesday I did Change Up in the morning and Michael probably facilitated the best out of any change up I’ve ever done. The kid who facilitated, Michael, he says he only did 1/3 of what he was expected to do by himself, but he facilitated the best out of anyone in the school. I also played at the park. I found a way to collect water. I collected it by shaking leaves into a basil leaf. Then I had basil flavored rain water and it tasted so good. And I did clean up.
On Thursday, I went on an urban hike through downtown. We went to the Romare Bearden park and I played and it was really fun. Then I came back and saw that Charlotte came back. It was awesome. It’s felt like she’s been gone a year and it’s only been four months.
On Friday, I learned how to skateboard from my friends Zack, Will, Gabe, and the road. I played super Liam-mora. A person from the New York School tried to hypnotize me. He says it works 80% of the time. I think it worked this time but not in the right way. I think it makes you hungry.
On Monday I did book club, i really like this book. It’s really sort of funny and it makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. I’m really excited for the next chapter. The book is called Bud, Not Buddy. I highly recommend it. I also did math, which was fun. We did the multiplication challenge which is probably my favorite part of math. I played outside and did the Change Up facilitation meeting. That’s it for Monday.
On Tuesday I did book club, we read Bud, Not Buddy. We did cooking. We made falafels, they were really good. I did Writer’s Workshop, but I didn’t write. I just listened to the book because I didn’t feel like writing that day. And I climbed a tree.
On Wednesday I did Mica’s art and we made dream catchers which was fun. I did intermediate math and space jam meeting. Dean’s doing this art/music thing sort of like a talent show where you can do some stuff. It’s sort of hard to explain, but it’s really fun according to what I heard. And that is space jam. I also did Change Up and it was the first day that kids facilitated! Elisha and Tessa and were facilitating and I think they did really well. And I am excited to do it next Wednesday and I’ll tell you all about that on Friday next week.
On Thursday I went on the urban hike and it was so fun. I also did Crossfit and the farmers carry was hard. And that’s it for Thursday.
On Friday I did book club, we were still reading Bud, Not Buddy, it’s getting better and better. I did espanol. We played a new game that Nancy did in math with us and it was really, really fun. And then Michael showed me some new parrot videos and we watched Michael do duolingo and I learned that “le” is “the” in French. I think. And I also did clean up and I’m sorry but the blog has caught up to us in real time, so goodbye.
On Monday I did intermediate math, and I really, really enjoyed the multiplication speed challenge. For some reason I got slower on Wednesday but I got more right. There were 50 problems and on Wednesday I got 49 out of 50 in 8 minutes and 4 seconds. On Monday I got 4 wrong in 7 minutes and I’m not sure how many seconds. I did the change up facilitation meeting. We talked about what Change Up is and then we talked about what is the purpose of Change Up. I think we also talked about what a facilitator does. I went because I want to facilitate change up.
On Tuesday I did book club and we read Bud, Not Buddy, which is a book we started last week on Monday. I just didn’t make a blog last week. Then I did cooking, and we made Jackson’s famous guacamole. We also made salsa. It was realllllllly good. I watched stuff with Luke, I did Writer’s Workshop. In Writer’s Workshop I wrote about a ride I went on with my Dad at Universal Studios. I did Anatomy and Physiology and Crossfit and it was leaning a little to the easy side. It was fun, I managed to do six rounds with the 15lb ball.
On Wednesday I did Mica’s Art and we did finger print art, which was really fun. I made a dragon, I made an Indian panda, and I made a sluggercorn, and I made a star nosed mole. I also did intermediate math, oh and I forgot to mention that we played a game called “pizza til you puke” on Monday and Wednesday. I did not like it very much so I opted to not play it on Wednesday. I also went to the Lion King musical and I really liked the costumes and how they organized the whole thing. They didn’t make up too much, but some of their songs were different from the movie. It was really good.
On Thursday I did the hike. It was fun. I really like climbing over all the rocks and I got down a bunch of ledges of rocks that I had to climb through it. We went to Crowder’s Mountain. For some reason I’m not sore from walking through the woods for 4 or 5 miles in rough terrain and then doing Crossfit. We got off trail and we had to roll under a fence to get back to civilization.
On Friday book club got canceled because people wanted to do different things. I solved a rubics cube twice. Can I tell you something? You can scramble a rubics cube over 43 Quintilian different ways. I did Spanish and we learned a song and I also played outside, it was fun. And I went to the Change Up Facilitation meeting and we talked about what it’s like and what the facilitator does and an example for something you would need to say “could we please talk about this after change up” and we decided Elisha and Tessa would facilitate the next change up, and Liberty and I would facilitate after that, and then Michael would facilitate alone after that. And then I played a little big more and then we did clean up and blog which is when we have caught up in real time.
On Tuesday I did the book club meeting and we decided on Bud, Not Buddy and I’m looking forward to doing that. We are starting next Monday. I also went to Writers Workshop and I didn’t write much because I didn’t have many ideas of what to write. I also did Spanish and that was really really fun. El caiman means caiman.
On Wednesday I danced with a ribbon for ribbon dancing which was fun. I took a break from everything I normally do to do something different. I didn’t go to math either but my mom helped me on the homework. I did tech free hour which was fitness at the park, which ended up being just going to the park. I did both clean ups. We helped the church by picking up trash and weeding some garden beds and some other stuff to help the church because they have been so nice in letting us rent space.
On Thursday I went to the Mint Musuem. I saw some exhibits and the art room was really awesome. They had these things that if you put it under paper then the picture thats carved out on them appears if you scribble on it. And they also had these puzzle stencils. We can make tesselations with them. And we saw a drawing of Bernie Sanders on the wall and what’s really interesting is that we know the person who drew it.
On Friday I did cooking class, I made a tiny table, I played with my fan and ribbon and I tried to do tricks on a tiny skate board. I made pasta puttanesca. We made it because we read a series of unfortunate events book one as a reading group thing and the kids made that in the story.
Monday – no school.
Tuesday I did capture the flag football, cooking class, and Anatomy & Physiology. Capture the Flag Football is a mix of capture the flag and flag football. I also watched Bridge to Terebithia Movie. We made Cesar salad on cooking class. I didn’t like the Cesar we made, but I liked the salad the other group made. We made our dressing a little too watery.
Wednesday we did Meditative Drawing. I did the hover board. I went with the flow. I did a very short Writer’s Workshop and Ari’s around the sun. I did Change Up and I wrote a letter to Charlotte. After school I went to Bean for Ari’s birthday.
On Thursday I got sick. I went on the hike. And I stayed after school and made small books.
On Friday I did Spanish Restaurant, went with the flow, went to Armin’s talk and made paper crowns. I liked Armin’s talk.
On Monday I went to the Levine Museum. They celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day and they were showing us life was about 45 years ago. The exhibits were really nice, but life then was not so nice. I wish I brought $30 to that time period because things were very very cheap. They sold an ice cream sundae for 25 cents. After I went to the musuem, we went to the park. I played banana tag and hide and go seek tag. Then I went on the bus back to school.
On Tuesday I listened to Bridge to Terebithia. I went to the show “The New Kid.” That was really nice. It’s where a new kid from Homeland came to America. And he spoke English at Homeland and the Americans spoke a gibberish of languages mixed all together. That was actually really good show, I really enjoyed it. After I came back I did knife safety class and I made fruit salad. That was really awesome. After that I did clean up and then we did Spawn Point and stretched.
On Wednesday I did intermediate math. Nancy does math with all of us and right now we’re finishing addition and subtraction and moving on to multiplication. I also did Writer’s Workshop and we made our hearts on the first page of our notebooks and we wrote in questions and the answers of those questions, like “What will we never forget?” What I wrote for that one was going to the Universal Studios. I also went with the flow and Kate’s around the sun. I ate Popsicles, I got lime. I also did Change Up.
On Thursday, I made a wand. Click the video below to find out how.
I made two on Wednesday also. They are now my favorite craft to make. I also played Badminton with Caleb. I also went to the park and I soap carved. I tried to make a car, but it turned out more like a rocket ship.
On Friday I did Spanish market and game. I also played geometry dash. I did intermediate math. I did clean up and I did blogging. I bought stuff at the Spanish market and it looks like the blog has caught up with us in real time. Goodbye.
On Tuesday I started Bridge to Terebithia which is a really great book that I really like. I also went to the Writer’s Workshop interest meeting and built a snowman. I did spawn and that was it for Tuesday.
On Wednesday I did the cooking interest meeting. I did Bridge to Terebithia and change up and intermediate math. Intermediate math was more checking it out to see if I wanted to do it. I thought it was pretty fun so I decided I want to do it. Cooking interest meeting they told us you have to come to the knife skills meeting before you come to the cooking meeting and we decided on some things we wanted to make. Change up we went through everything and we told offerings we already did last year and offerings we wanted to do again this year.
On Thursday we did the hike, we went to McDowell Nature Preserve and it was a two mile and something else. The hike was really nice and after that I came back and I played on school computer and that it was for Thursday.
Friday I did Spanish market and soap carving. That was really fun. Friday was one of my favorite days of the week.
On Monday I made shampoo, I figured out the ingredients and put them on the sticker and now I know how to make shampoo. I also made conditioner and did the same. I used the conditioner and it turns out it’s exactly like normal conditioner. The shampoo works like shampoo but there’s something weird about the shampoo. It’s really watery, there’s no solid. But it works. The conditioner works perfectly, it even looks and feels exactly like conditioner. The ingredients for the conditioner was 1 1/2 teaspoons gaur gum, 1 cup coconut milk, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 15 drops of lavender oil, I think that was it. The shampoo ingredients are 2/3 cup castile soap, 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/4 cup distilled water, 5 drops lavender oil,1 teaspoon vitamin E oil. Next time I would put only a little bit of water.
On Tuesday I watched The Giver. I played with Liam and made one last potion.
On Wednesday I felted soap, I knitted, I did Writer’s Workshop, tech free hour, fire drill & change up.
On Thursday I hiked at Town Creek Indian Mound. My favorite part was the weapons demonstration. The bow and arrow is my favorite weapon of all time. I have a question: How did they get the idea to move up to swords and guns after the bow and arrow? Wasn’t that good enough?
On Friday I had the best party celebration ever. My mom and cooked for everybody and I was the waiter. Then we did the around the sun. Then we came into the food room for cake. Now we’ve caught up to real time so I guess I can’t write anymore. Goodbye!
Just so you know, my birthday is the 15th not the 16th.
