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!

Who makes an impact on me

The early church fathers  “shaped” the churches with their own teaching and with their life examples. My parents have shaped me by their teachings and life examples.

My parents have had an important impact in my life because I am ALWAYS with them. I’m not saying that that’s a bad thing, I am saying that since I live with them I am with them a lot. They have also taught me to learn from my mistakes and those made by others.

I think that my dad has actually had the most impact on my lifestyle and what I learn. Plus, since I am with him everyday I learn a lot of things from him even when I am out of school because he teaches me things every day! He teaches me about law and what’s actually happening in the real world.

Even though I am with my dad more, I still learn things from my mom. My dad teaches me by educating me from school while my mom teaches me with both her life examples and her teachings. For example, her life example for me is that she is very talented at math and she has a really good job and that shows to me that if you work hard enough on what you want, you can achieve it!  Since my mom has a great job as an accountant she can also teach me math. she teaches me from both her life examples and as a teacher.

In closing, my family really influences and makes an impact in my life choices.

See you next time for more Learning in Pajamas!

 

Pajama Book Report: Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm

I read the book Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm by Megan McDonald. In my opinion it was a very enjoyable book! I am going to inform you why I think that.

Every book has an exposition or, in other words, an introduction. In the introduction it generally explains or lets you know who the main character is, where they are , and the position or situation they are in.

In Judy Moody it explains that she is the main character she claims to have a lucky penny that, of course, gives her good luck. It also tells you that she is in a restaurant with her family.

Next , we have the rising action. As you can tell from the title this is when the tension starts to rise and you can sort of feel like something  good or bad is going to happen.

I could feel the tension rising when Judy kept getting really fabulous luck I wasn’t expecting some of the things that happened.

The climax is when the most tension is “in the air,” or when the most important part is happening. That would be when Judy’s friend Jessica invited her to go with her to Washington D.C. to watch her pig while she was in a spelling bee. Along with that, a “mini climax” would be when she was watching the pig– it ran off and Judy couldn’t find it.

After the climax is the falling action. That is when everything is starting to settle down and there is not as much tension as there was before.

That would be when Judy found the pig and went back to the hotel room.  As well as when Jessica came back from the spelling bee to tell them her place.

Then. in the end is the resolution this is how it ended up or how thing went for everyone.

In Judy Moody, it turns out that Jessica won the spelling bee, Judy got to see the President of the United States, and it turned out she lost the penny BUT she still had her good luck so it ended up that she didn’t need the penny, she was naturally lucky!

Those are the five parts of a plot and that is the story of Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm!

 

The world’s first civilizations

There have been many civilizations in the world. The first one was Mesopotamia.

Inside Mesopotamia was the Fertile Crescent, an area where many crops grew, and on some maps looks like a crescent shape! The Fertile Crescent is watered by the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers. In the winter the mountains freeze over. Then when the ice melted the water fell into the rivers, and the water would have silt in it. Silt helps fertilize crops, that is why the Fertile Crescent  is so fertile.

Meanwhile, in Mesopotamia a city-state called Akkad was made by a man named Sargon. Eventually it was so strong that it became an empire, the Akkadian Empire! Other empires were the Babylonian Empire who made the code of Hammurabi. The  Assiran Empire who were very aggressive, owned a lot of land, and were known for being such barbarian people. There was a second Babylonian Empire who had a stronger period, they broke power of Israel who were then in captivity and also STAYED in captivity until Persia over through Babylon!

The Mesopotamians had a specific diet they ate: grains or beans, figs and dates,water and and beer,meat, fish, and milk! To make their beer they would use both figs and dates.

The Persians, who defeated the babylonian empire, were “allies” with the Roman Empire or in other words they not constantly at war with each other. The Romans also created road systems and several Legions! Legions were ancient Roman armies that had a great number of people in it. The road systems made life a whole lot easier for travel because then they could have a pathway to where they were going rather than getting lost!
