Red Kayak By Shaffer W

I am reading The Red Kayak. I first heard of this book during a book talk. The teacher was talking about this book and I was very interested in it, so I found the book, checked it out, and I’m just starting to read it. I chose to read this book because it has a lot of drama in it and there are a couple of mysteries to be solved.

Shuranka and Donte By: Shaffer W.

One day in south Africa, there was a walrus, her name was Shuranka. Shuranka was not that 

happy because it was getting hot and there was not a lot of water to swim in. Along the way came an elephant, and his name was Donte. Donte was very happy but when he saw Shuranka and he wanted to know what was wrong. She said, “I am just so hot because there is no water to anywhere, I just don’t know what to do.” Donte then came up with an idea. He said, “Have you seen any water anywhere at all?”

Shuranka said, “Yes I have, there is some water out in the north of Africa.
So Donte and Shuranka walked all the way to the north and Donte said, “I am not sure there is any water here.”
But then, Shuranka saw some water in the distance and said, “Look Donte! There is some water over there!”
Then they both ran to the water and they splashed in the water and then all the water went up in the air and came back down and the were all wet. They were both so happy that they were cooled off. Then Donte sucked up some water and sprayed Shuranka and she was all wet. They were both so happy that they stayed in the north and lived by the water together.

Moral: Always have faith.

Comic Life: The Talkative Turtle by Shaffer






For my comic life, I chose to do the story called The Talkative Turtle. I chose this story because I thought it was very interesting and I thought I was going to have fun making it. At first when I was making it, I was not drawing well and when I finished my first slide, it looked very bad. So then I learned that there are effects that you can use to make your lines straighter or your heads rounder, it helped me a lot. When I finished, I thought that I did a great job making this story.

On New Years weekend, I am going to Tampa Bay, Florida for a national lacrosse tournament. The reason we are going is because we just recently won the Charlotte lacrosse tournament which qualified us to go to Florida and play lacrosse there. I am very excited and I cannot wait to go to Florida. My whole family and friends are coming to watch me play lacrosse.

My Grammar Presentation by Shaffer

I did my presentation on HOW TO USE A SEMICOLON. I chose to do a presentation on a semicolon because I didn’t really know how to use it in a sentence, so I chose how to use a semicolon to learn how to use it. One rule for using a semicolon is you always use a semicolon when two sentences are very similar. Making the presentation didn’t take very long but it was very fun making it.

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon picking up sweet potatoes. It was very hard but we all knew we were doing the right thing to give food to people so that they would not go hungry. We were in the hot sun picking up the potatoes and dropping them in bags. We had to fill the bags up to basketball size in order to estimate our total number of potatoes at the end of the day.

I Am Proud Of by Shaffer W.


I am proud of myself for working hard in school. I am trying very hard to do well in class and get good grades so that I can have a bright future ahead of me. I am proud of my athletic ability to do a lot of things that I can do. I am very proud of what I do and where I am now. I am proud of my sister for being the captain of the field hockey team and she is very athletic also. I am proud of my mom and dad for taking good care of me and for giving me everything I need to have a good life.


iPads by Shaffer W

This year in 2012, people were very excited about what we were getting; we were getting iPads. The whole middle school has an iPad. We got iPads because we think that it is easier to take notes, copy the homework, and we use less paper. It’s easier to carry around compared to having assignment notebooks and having a lot of paper.

I think our iPads are good addition to the school. The cases are very protective because I have seen many people drop their iPads and they didn’t break, but the hard thing about the iPads is trying not to lose them. I think Mr. Schaefer and Mr. Hoyt are doing a phenomenal job with iPads. I think that the ipads are a great idea for the school. I know that they have been waiting to bring ipads to Durham Academy and I’m glad they are bringing them in now before I leave the middle school. I still have a lot of things to learn on the iPad.
