Over the last two days in LA we did comics of wisdom tales using Comic Life. I did the Wise Master. The comic life program wasn’t too hard in fact it was fun to create a comic with all the genres and fonts. My tale was from India and the moral was do the right thing even if nobody is watching.
Today we took an open not test on wisdom tales. I prefer open note tests because you don’t get as stressed about them. You still have to study though! To prepare for the test I read through all my wisdom tales again and worked on memorizing types of stories. It was good having an iPad to hold all my notes. I think it was easier to organize them. The only problem was that my wisdom tales document was so big it took a long time to load! Overall I think the iPad helped a lot!
I am thankful for my family. I have two sisters named Evie and Juliana and two cats. Evie is in kingdergarden and Juliana is in elementary school. I am thankful for my parents cooking and getting together with other family members on Thanksgiving. My sisters are very creative and funny. I am looking forward to this Thanksgiving because of all the good food I get to eat. I am thankful my parents can provide meals for me and my sisters.
Here are three tips for you!
If you have anything that you really like and want to protect put it in Evernote. Therefore, if your iPad gets stolen or damaged your things on Evernote will be saved.
If you hold down on an app it will start to shake and you will be able to drag it on top of another app to create a category. This way you can have all your apps on one page.
3.Triple click home
You can go into your accessibility settings and turn on triple click home then you will be able to do things by tapping home three times.
In LA we had to do a presentation about a grammar rule. My rule was how to use numbers in a sentence. For two digit numbers or two word numbers you should use standard form and for 0-9 you should use word form. The project was fun and interesting.
Yesterday we gleaned sweet potatoes for school community service. We had to fill plastic mesh bags until they were about ten pounds. The sweet potatoes went to people who couldn’t afford food in Durham, Raleigh, and other smaller communities in the area. The inter-faith food shuttle came and picked some of the sweet potatoes up. It felt good to pick all of those potatoes and send them off to people who can’t afford them. It was very fun but it was also pretty hot.
I am proud of my camping skills because I am a Boy Scout and I had to cook four meals by myself and they were all edible. I cooked spaghetti, sausage, toast, eggs, and bacon. It was challenging but it was very fun and I learned how to cook a lot of food on a camp stove.
I love the iPads because I don’t have to bring home nearly as many books as I had to last year. The homework also seems easier with the iPad. I also like the system of writing down homework better. Evernote notebooks for each class are also a good idea. With Evernote I can see homework and do homework. I can also do things on Skitch an upload them to Evernote.
