Soldering

Today my dad and I learned how to SOLDER!!!

We used a soldering iron and solder to make an led light circuit! At first I had no idea on how to use it. Soon, I picked up the soldering iron and started to solder! It was difficult at first because we didn’t know how to get the solder onto the tiny circuit board. Eventually my dad looked it up and then we finally knew how to do it correctly. The way you solder on a circuit board is by putting your iron on the copper rings around the holes, let that sit for just a few seconds, and then put the solder on the iron, and move it up and down until it is melted! Once that is completed then you can now say you can solder! No matter what you do, DO NOT touch the iron, it is extremely HOT!!!!

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!

My field trip

Field trips: on 9-6-16 I went to the beach with my family to go fishing. At the beach my dad and aunt and uncle had to teach me how to fish since the first time i went i didn’t even have a hook on my rod and it was so long ago that forgot. When we got to the beach we quickly got started the first person to catch something was me! I, sadly, caught a dead crab.

After a little while of fishing my brother and I started to play in the water. While we were playing the current would move us around so when we were trying to avoid a spot we would go to it any ways!

Soon after that we went back to fishing. I felt strong tugs on my fishing rod so I started pulling the string out of the water and reeling it in.

I got a flounder!! Eventually the fish was out of the water! Then the hook broke off! I was very, very upset because now that fish has to live with a hook in it.

When we were heading back home we got to ride the ferry! It was cool because then I got to say that I rode a boat and I could find out if I have sea sickness!

Early into the trip while my uncle was fishing some type of shell came up on the shore. That is why I was assigned to find what this shell was the shell looked like this:

The way I found out what this was is I looked up strange shells at the beach and It turns out it is called a horseshoe crab shell so I looked up more pictures and found out whatever killed it ate all of it.  If it was still alive it would have looked like this:

My day at the beach was awesome! I hope to share some more fun times with you on learning in pajamas!

My Traumatic Day!

On my second day of homeschool, for me, it was VERY confusing!!!! First of all, in science I had to do a short electromagnetic spectrum project and I could NOT figure out how to do it! I looked all over the page, eventually, I found the correct website.

The next thing I had to do was my quiz prep….. That didn’t go very well. I knew the first questions and then on last one I looked everywhere! Soon, I found out that I knew the question in the first place and  I threw a big tantrum for NO reason. But that was on because I was super duper confused!!

But tomorrow is a new day to learn in my pajamas or whatever I am wearing see you next time!
