This year we created a Life List in Language Arts class. This as a lot of fun because I got to hear what other people wanted to do and come up things that I want to do and accomplish during my life time. A lot of my goals were related to travel, but some were goals that I just really want to accomplish. Some of my items include: go to all seven continents, go to the seven wonders of the world, graduate high school, graduate college, get certified for scuba diving, go to Spain, go to Thailand, go sky diving etc.!
Some of these goals I have already started working on, for example get certified for scuba diving- I have already started the certification process and I not need my four certification dives, and then Great Barrier Reef here I come! I’m also working on a lot of my travel goals! My family never misses an opportunity to go to an exotic country! I can also see the influences from my sixth grade year on my Life List, like go to Spain because I take Spanish. I really love the class and language and I want to go there.
In Language Arts we made a drawing of our brain. My brain had all the things that stick in my mind. Most of my brain was sports, T.V., friends, family, Xbox, etc.. All these things make up my life. It was a very fun project.
6th grade was a lot of work but now that it has come to the end I wonder how much work 7th will be…… 6th grade, aside from being a lot of work, was pretty interesting. Every teacher had a different style, every class was a lot different than 5th grade, and sometimes I wish the classes would be more spread out so that I would be in classes with different people.
This week in Language Arts, we worked on our brain project. Everyone drew a brain and used words and drawings to describe what was going on in our lives. I think this was a cool project and it was fun drawing almost anything I could think of. Speaking of the end of the year, this is my last blog post unless we do blogging next year. If I look back at my old blog posts I can see how much better my writing is now than it was then. It has been a good year, and I hope next year will be just as good.
In Language Arts we made a brain with everything that goes on in our brain and the best parts of this year. My favorite part of sixth grade was Camp Cheerio. When I left camp Cheerio in the summer I didn’t have to think that I wouldn’t be coming back for a year. I only had to wait a month! I enjoyed spending time with my friends and trying new adventures.
Sixth grade was really fun and I want to leave for summer, although, I don’t want to go to seventh grade. Everyone says seventh grade is the hardest grade in middle school. I am definitely not excited for exams. The two things I am excited for are the Washington, D.C. Trip and school sports! I have so many memories from sixth grade to remember.
In Language Arts we drew our version of our own brain. There were lots of creative brain drawings. In most of the brain drawings there were some short blurbs about highlights in 6th Grade. It was really fun drawing my brain in class because no one can critique you on what your brain looks like. In the end it came out pretty awesome. Take a look!
This is my brain. I have been working on it in LA since Tuesday afternoon. I have a sports section, a hiking section, a playing outside section, a school section, and another section.
My favorite part (my starting point) is the tree. As you can see the tree is not perfect and I tried my best on it. I really like hiking in the mountains because I have a house up there on the side of a mountain. We own a lot of land up there because other parts of our family live up there. We have this trail that leads to the top of the mountain and then down the hill to the barn. In the school part I have vocabulary from Language Arts and I have the science dissection of a perch. This brain represents my life.
The Brain project was one of the last projects we did. We would draw a brain-like shape and then we would write words that would described our 6th grade experience. Some new people (like me) also put memories of our old school. In my brain I put the names of my old and new friends and my teachers. On the outside of my brain I put my old school logo, as well as the DA logo. I also added what classes I am taking in bold colors. Then I added some little color splashes in and voila, I finished.
In this picture you can see my brain. Well, not my actual brain, but it shows what goes on in my brain. In my brain you can find basketball, soccer, lax, Patrick, LeBron, music, rap, rappers, and Cedar Point. These are all things that I like and think about a lot. Around the edges of the brain is my Life List. In the Life List you can see things such as, walk on the moon and go the Super Bowl. The Life List is simply things that I want to do or accomplish during my lifetime. As you can see, I think a lot about sports, theme parks, and music.
In Language Arts class, we made a figurative picture of our brain. One of the other things we did in Language Arts class was write stories. Technically, we had a choice between writing a story or writing sentences with our Vocabulary words, but I chose to write stories. Here are two stories that I wrote.
It was another calm day at Equestrian Farm and Track. Avery Apple was catching up on the latest Saw movies when he heard a scream. A monolith had fallen on Old Bob Banana, pinning the nadir of his peel to the ground. “Oh no, a monolith has fallen on me and pinned the nadir of my peel to the ground!” He shouted.
Avery Apple languidly strolled over and tried to pick the monolith up. He was distracted by the spectrum of colors on the monolith. “What variety!” He exclaimed.
“Just get this darned monolith of the nadir of my peel!” Shrieked Bob Banana.
“No worries.” Avery Apple said, “I’ll get the titanic progeny of that pugilist who lives down that tortuous road.
“Are you talking about Tortuous Lane?” Bob Banana asked.
“Yep.” Avery Apple answered.
“But I hear that lane is filled with the truculent offspring in the lineage of the great Scrooge himself!” Bob Banana exclaimed, then added: “I really hate that penurious fellow.”
“Yep, I would do anything for you Bob” Avery Apple said while kowtowing. “Well, I should be off. goodbye!!”
Hear what happens next in the following episode of The Adventures in Equestrian Farm and Track!!
While Avery Apple was walking down Tortuous Lane, he pondered the strange purple nodule that appeared on every third tree he saw. On every fourth tree; an oscillating pendulum, swinging back and forth. It was so soporific, that Avery fell down, lying prostrate, with his right arm tucked under his body, and fell asleep. Avery awoke to a lugubrious tune. He shifted position, so that he could see who was making the sound. All Avery saw was a whirling maelstrom. Avery immediately jumped up, and looked at his surroundings. Someone had moved him to the edge of a vast lake. His destination was past the maelstrom, twenty feet away. Avery felt as though it was trying to tantalize him. Avery realized that he would never get help for Bob Banana, so he walked back home; a saturnine expression on his face. When he got back, Avery saw Bob Banana, waiting to greet him. Ever since he saw Bob Banana, Avery Apple wouldn’t talk; not when watching Saw III, not when playing catch with his sister, not even when in school.
