What I liked and Disliked about this School Year!

Today was the last day of school! This year has gone by super fast! Today I will be telling you what I liked and didn’t like about this school year!

This school year I really enjoyed writing short stories! When you write a story you get to be creative and there are no rules! There is nothing that says something doesn’t exist! You can make it exactly how YOU want! I never realized how fun writing could be until this class! Last year I would write but I would really enjoy it! Maybe it’s my age that helped me understand how much fun it is, or maybe my teacher! Another thing I really enjoyed was the robotics section! In this course I created many things! Instead of creating the robot that my teacher made I used a kit! The robot that I used is called Snap circuits! This was so fun that we actually ended up buying another one! Building a robot like this isn’t as complicated but it helps you remember what the symbols of resistors, diodes, and much more!

The things that I didn’t enjoy this year, there weren’t that many because this school year was fun, there isn’t much to complain! However, the main thing that I didn’t like this year was having to read G. A. Henty books! The reason why I didn’t enjoy these books were that they weren’t that fun to read! They just aren’t what I like! Some people do like these books, that’s their taste not mine! One other thing I didn’t like about this school year is how I didn’t have that many assignments to write a story! Many people wouldn’t complain about that! However, I find writing stories very fun! I really enjoy stories where I get a topic and I get to make up a story all about that!

In conclusion, I really enjoyed this school year! I really wouldn’t want to change anything! This year was fun, and I am excited to do another year of homeschool next year!

The Battles of Hastings!

In history class I learned about the Battle of Hastings!

The battle of Hastings marked the start of Norman conquest and the end of the Viking era in 1066. Also in 1066 European power got added to England’s domain.

A man named William of Normandy made an attempt to win a battle! This battle lasted an entire day! luckily he and his army won, because of this he was then named William the Conqueror. Another war was the Battle of the Stamford Bridge. This war was a very bloody war and many people died. Unlike the battle of Hastings the Saxons won this battle, because of this win, William was crowned king on Christmas Day. The battle of the Stamford Bridge started because many people believed they should be king! The battle of the Stamford Bridge played a big role in the Battle of Hastings.  The role was to see who the next king was to be, because at the time many people wanted to be the next king! The battle of Hastings was won by the Normans this is when it started a new era, the Norman conquest era.

As King William was leaving the battle he was either shot in the eye by an arrow or he was shot in the back of the head. The reason I don’t know how King William was killed is because, there are many stories of how he was killed, but nobody knows for sure how he was killed! By the end of the war the Saxons were fleeing the sight and King William then got killed!

A New World: Part 3

A New World: Part 3

As I was floating through the air in my rocket my only thought was “I get to see my family”. Which is okay, but….. I could have been thinking about what I was gonna eat for dinner, what that note from the queen was meaning, or even if I was even gonna make it through this! The only thing that matters to me is helping my mom get better. Then out of nowhere there was a big bang! It came from the slumber chambers. I got up and started tiptoeing towards my room when I heard whispers from behind me close to the door! I took a look around but I couldn’t  see or find anything. I assume that I am just hearing things but it still seems strange. What seems like a few hours later I feel like I have stopped so I look out the window and there are hundreds of people sitting around including the news, NASA, and the FBI! I step out in the warm sun I feel the warmth rushing through my body. I walk out of my rocket and start strutting out as if I were on a catwalk. I suddenly get overwhelmed with questions. I rush through the crowd of people. I finally find my house in a crowd of what used to be familiar but now is almost unrecognizable.

I walk in and call for my mom. As I shut the door a man walks in from the dining room confused.

“How did you get in?” he asked me. “ I live here. The real question is how did you get in here!?” I replied.

For some reason I couldn’t even faintly remember who this guy was! “Hey! Do you know where my mom is? I need to see her!” I yelled

“Wait a minute! I recognize you you’re Kaylee Mariner!” He exclaimed “I bought this house after you’re mom went to the hospital!” “ the hospital.” I whispered “ we need to go!” I shouted at him

After he told me which hospital she was in I demanded him to drive me! After a while I was very nervous to see her but also exited! I was also feeling gloomy. What caused her to go to the hospital. Also the fact that my house was full of this guys stuff, yet there are no boxes, tells me that that he has been there for a while! Which also means she has been at the hospital for a long time.

When we arrived I jumped out of his black and blue Jeep! When we opened the doors to the hospital I was shocked. The room was completely empty, except for the nurse at the front desk. I ran up to the nurse and asked her about my mom. “ OHHH. your mom was, Lesley mariner, she died years ago!” I felt a tear about to drip off of  my blood red face so quickly wiped it away. “ do you know” I stuttered “how she died?”

“ she died from Hydrocephalus one of the worst brain diseases, you can go read about it in that pamphlet over there.” she pointed to pamphlets.

“ I don’t WANT to read about it I WANT my mom back!” I couldn’t take it any longer. “ I no family, I have no friends, I have no home, and worst of all I have no mom!” I started to pour out crying. Not knowing what to do.

Then, I woke up. It was all a dream I was so happy! “ where am I!?” I yelled.

Someone came up to me and told me I was in the hospital! Shocked I yelled for my mom! “Honey I am your mom don’t you recognize me?!”she told me confused yet still joyful because I am awake. “ Mom… how long was I here”

“ 5 years.” she replied. I gave her a hug and cried again. Mom walked out of the room and tons and nurses came in! They all asked me questions. Soon they told me I could get up. But I would be in a wheelchair for a while. They told me that they will push me to my mom’s car while she gets it so I let them put me in a wheelchair!

I get in the car and have a silent ride home. When we get home mom introduces me to netflix and shows me tons of shows. We start binge watching stranger things. As we get to episode 4 I fall asleep. I wake up in a few hours and have dinner. I guess this is my life now! I am just happy to be home with my mom!

Switched at Birthday

Last week I got this book called: Switched at Birthday. It’s one of the many types of stories similar to Freaky Friday.

On that note, you can assume that it’s about two people who switch bodies and while they try to get back to normal, they find out what they love or like about the person who they switched with. This book is similar,  but these two girls figure out the struggles of each other!

One girl’s name is Lavender. From the name I would think she was the popular one. I was wrong, Lavender is  picked on because she is flocculent, Meaning hairy. She has a small amount of friends because she is made fun of.

The other girls name is Scarlet. She, of course, is the popular one. Scarlet has many friends and makes fun of Lavender. Lavender admires Scarlet and how no matter what Scarlet wears she looks very pretty.

Once they switch bodies they have to do everything that the other girl would so that no one will suspect anything. When Lavender was in Scarlet’s body, Scarlet’s friends would talk about Lavender and how they said she had to go to a dog groomer to get her hair cut. Then Lavender would know that they talk about her. They didn’t know it but this time they said it right to her face. That is really painful to know that they talk like this, about her, all time.

To find out what else happened you can find the book in the link above.

Until next for learning in pajamas

New World

“Hello”! I yell I can’t understand anyone and I don’t think they can understand me .

It all started when I was transported to a new planet. I don’t know where I am, but I know it’s not Venus because I have been there before. I try to understand but all they ever give me are books. Soon, I am piled with them I can’t help but read them. I realize they are trying to help me! they gave me books called English to Borg, Spanish to Borg, French to Borg, and lots of others. Eventually, I can sort of understand them but I still have to read my book.

Out of nowhere I heard screams everyone bowed down but me. I can’t help but to be scared for who knows what that means. Then all alien eyes were on me waiting me to bow down. I got the point really soon after that I got on my knees  “boinharyoi”she yelled “in English that means………time to eat?” I read “oh no” I wanted to run but I couldn’t I will die no matter what I do. When we all got up I hid behind a building hoping what they call lunch won’t call me dinner. All I heard were rattles. “I was right” I whispered.  my friends on earth and I made a deal about what aliens ate and I said rattlesnakes. I peer passed the building and see everyone eating but as I look back “YOUR MAJESTY!” she looked confused I realized I said that in English so I said it in Borg, she was still confused I bowed down and then she got angry. Why are you not eating?” she asked in Borg. So I told her I wasn’t hungry. She told me that her customs stated that “all new Borgs or aliens must EAT”. she looked around the corner, so I did as well, EVERYTHING was gone that means that I do NOT have to eat! Then the queen offered me to stay in the castle and of course I accepted. In the morning I was sent to the dining room and the waiters gave me what looked like a Poptart and really smelled good. I took one bite into it and it tasted just like fresh cherries. Later on I found out that that was not a pop tart it was….. Rattlesnake!!! That’s when I found out that I like rattlesnake.  The world is rocky in some areas and others it’s slimy. The Borgish people are purple and pink for girls and blue and orange for guys. I saw some of the boys with broncos t-shirt so I told them “go broncos”!! then EVERYONE said “DUCK” in Borg out of nowhere flying broncos were everywhere. Everyone started circling me, I was scared, and I didn’t know what to do. All know is that this is one strange planet and at this point I hope this is all a dream!
