My Poem

Swimming in the nearby pond
Where the wind is free and the water is stained
hummingbirds flying, bee’s buzzing,
kids splashing, teenagers suntanning, adults talking at the nearby pond
As I swim I hear nothing
I feel my hands slice through the water
as I swim in the nearby pond

The Last Olympian – My Book Reveiw

by Rick Riordan
Hyperion Books
Ages 9-15
381 pages

We all know the magnificent Percy Jackson series. Well, finally the last book is out and the the series is complete.

Just like the rest of the books the Last Olympian is action filled and hilarious. Furthermore, Percy and Annebeth might finally reveal their true feelings towards each other.

Unfortunately the gods are busy fighting, Typhon the giant so they cant defend Olympias when Kronos(the Titan Lord) and his followers attack Olympus. Luckily for the gods Annebeth and Percy and the rest of Camp Half-Blood are there to defend Olympus. However they have a hard time and are almost done fore until two unexpected visitors show up. During the war feelings are revealed and the loyalty in Camp Half-Blood is tested, while an unexpected hero sacrifices her life to save the day.

This is a very well written book with fantastic humor that is very different from any other book you will ever read. The story plot is unlike any plot so far in the Percy Jackson series. In this book expect twist and turns in the plot for sure! Unlike other books, you can learn about Greek mythology in a fun and adventuresome way! I recommend this book to ages nine to fifteen, but I’m sure other ages could read it to.

Student LED

Hi, I know I haven’t done a post for a long time but that’s because I have been busy getting ready for student LED. Student LED is when I ( the child) shows my parent what I have done for the year. I will show my parent my math, my spelling, my science and my art. We will play a math game, where you take two cards and the black card is a negative number and the red card is the positive number and then you add them together. I will also show my parent my mathletics account.

And that is what I am going to do for my student LED.

How Your Letter Gets to its Destination

Ever wonder how your letter gets from here to there? How your letter gets to its destination without getting lost along the way? Well its simple really, first its starts in the mailbox.

When your letter is lying in the cold dark mailbox the post mistress comes, opens the mail box up and slips all the letters in to a box. She carries them of and dumps them on a conveyor belt, and that is when the sorting process begins. They use big machines to sort the letters, after the machines sort the letters they send the letters of to a machine called an Optical Character.

The Optical Character reads the address on the letter, all the letters and numbers and prints on the letter using a bar code. Witch only special machines can read. Once the Optical Character knows were the letter is going it sends the letter of to be loaded in a box, its finally going to get shipped to its destination.

After the letter gets of the airplane,truck, ship or anything else that will carry the letter its sorted again (using the bar code) this time to find the pacific city. The post mistress then drops the letter into a bag were it will go to the city were it needs to be sorted again! This time it will be sorted to specific neighborhood or a box number inside the post office. Finally the friend you sent the letter to gets to read and might just send a letter back.

Now that you know how a letter is sent you might just want to tell someone, maybe you could write a letter to someone!

My superheroes

My superheroes names are Penny and James. Penny has a pen that she found by the riverbank when she was young and with that pen anything she writes comes true, the problem is she tends to loose things so she doesn’t always have her pen. James got struck by lighting when he was only 8 months old, know he is blind but can control anything that has anything to do with electricity and make anything to do with electricity. Both are very kind but penny tends to get angry and frustrated easily and James is very patient and will never get mad unless he wants to see something. They are a team and will always be because they are both very loyal and don’t like change.

They live in a barn and one day they get a call from the telephone that James made, that the mayer needs them because Destructive man is planning to take over the world. So they fled the barn and they started to travel to Londen were the mayor was on vacation. Long story short they do a bunch of cool things and they save the day. Then they go back to their barn to awaite onother pleade for help.

Once I actually write the comic strip I will post it on my blog but this is just some ideas.

Christmas is Coming

Hello there, are you excited for Christmas? I know I am really excited. I got some new snowboard boots and snow pants, I got them early because the mountain opens before Christmas. My brother and I also got a puppy! She is Husky/German Shepherd. She is white and black and we named her Juno after the Roman goddess. We got her early because she was born almost a month before Christmas. If mum had decided to go pick a puppy for our Christmas surprise then we never would have gotten Juno because she would have been gone. Good thing we went to pick her together.

But Christmas is not just about getting a whole bunch of cool toys, it’s about giving and family and friends. There are some easy ways you can do some good Christmas deeds. For instance if your town has a Christmas hamper you could donate food to the people out there that can’t afford a Christmas dinner, or you could give some of your old toys or clothes to local charity. Those kids will love the toys and the adults will be able to cook a yummy Christmas dinner.

But don’t forget to make time for your family and friends. Make sure you make time to visit them. Or if you can’t visit them you can always use technology to talk to them, like face time or Skype. It doesn’t matter as long as you make time for them, maybe you can write a letter.

And that is my advice to you for the holidays, but remember have fun!!!

Facebook

So today my teacher said that the grade 7 have to write a post about if we think people under the age of 13 should be aloud to have Facebook. And I think…. well,why shouldn’t kids under 13 have Facebook. If their parents give them permission and they are responsible then they have every right to go on Facebook. Well except that Facebook doesn’t allow that. But parents should always know what kids are posting and saying on Facebook or things could get bad. So yes if their parents allow it and they are responsible enough then then I think kids under age 13 could have Facebook.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is coming up and around this time of year everyone is sad!! Witch I totally understand because I am one of the people who are sad! But I feel guilty sometimes because I am having fun and then I think of all those people who died and I feel so guilty. But you still can have fun on Remembrance Day. I mean people didn’t die so you could feel guilty. You can have fun but you should always remember the ones who died and keep them in mind because without them were would we be write now? Anyway if you are having a Remembrance Day gathering one good poem to recite Is Flanders Fields by John McCray:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. According to legend, fellow soldiers retrieved the poem after McCrae, initially unsatisfied with his work, discarded it. “In Flanders Fields” was first published on December 8 of that year.
