Back To School – 7th Grade

0

I have now finished my second week of school. It is a lot more different from 6th grade. Especially because this year we have 7 periods and last year we only had 5 periods and we still go to school the same time and end it at the same time. I go to the same school.  It’s a K-8 school with a magnet program through middle school. I’m in 7th grade and I’m on the soccer team. I play goal keeper and midfield for a substitute.

My favorite teacher is my civics teacher and my favorite subject is math for now. My teacher for math gives me a lot of homework and it is getting harder so I don’t know if I will like math after this year as much as I liked last year. My math teacher likes to give homework and makes us take lots of notes in class. I’m looking forward to civics and space science. My same science teacher last year for 6th moved up to 7th grade. I’m am also planning to join back in chorus, maybe tryout for basketball and join track again.

Spartan Football Camp

1

I just got back from a trip to Michigan to go to football camp at Michigan State.  The crazy thing was we just got back from Marco Island and went to a going away party for a friend. The next morning I had to wake up at 5:30 to get on a plane. On this trip it was only my dad and I. We got ready and we took off. We were going on Delta and they had free wifi and you could have watched movies and on their app. I watched Alexander and His Horrible Terrible No Good Very Bad Day and some of the Maze Runner.

When we arrived we got the rental car and we drove off to go eat at a coney island. It was my first actual coney dog. I liked it and I want to try another one again. After lunch we head over to my dad’s friends house which is a little less than 10 minutes away from the Spartan Stadium.

The first day of camp was long but really cool. There are different NFL teams where you are organized. I was in the Titans which I wasn’t excited about but it didn’t really matter. Each team had a coach and the coaches were players from the Michigan State football team. My coach was Brandon Clemons. He is a defensive tight and he weighs 305lbs.

The first day we stretched and the coaches introduced themselves. I also to took a picture with MSU Football Coach Mark Dantonio and the cotton bowl trophy. The first big activity was the offensive drills. Offensive drills includes QBs, WRs, and offensive line drills. After a break then there were Defensive drills its positions as LB, Defensive line and stuff like that. Then we had lunch and for lunch we had a wrap with cheese and ham, a cookie, chips. Then we went into the indoor practice field and did more drills. We also saw a video for MSU. Then we had dinner and we had chicken tenders. Then we played a razzle dazzle game. Razzle dazzle is like football but it is one hand touched and you can through the ball anywhere even if you are past the line of scrimmage. But the risk is  it still can get intercepted and incomplete. We played 2 games and we tied one and lost one. The scores were 14-14 and 21-14. In total I scored 2 touchdowns and had 4 interceptions. Then we packed up and left.

The second day was shorter but even better. We did the same thing as day one but for lunch was pizza and after lunch we went in the Spartan Stadium. We did a razzle dazzle game in their and we tied 14-14 and I got 2 touchdowns one was a pick six. I also got to go in the press box and watch other kids play razzle dazzle. After everything I got my jersey signed by most of the players that were their. Later that day we went to a tigers game and they lost 5-3 against the Reds.

The next day we went to the Ford tour at motor city and it was cool but I wouldn’t want to go everyday. At 7pm the plane took off and we came back home. When I get older I want to go back and stay at a dorm. So I want to go next year.

Why home work is good and bad

1

I don’t like homework(HW). The reasons are because it takes up most of my time. I can’t do what I want to do. If I want to play outside I have to come in early to do homework. In 6th grade we get more “projects” then homework. The reason I said “homework” is because it is not a project but it is homework due on further dates.what is the point of homework too. You are just going over information you already know. But next year I heard I’m going to get 50 plus problems everyday for math. So I’m very excited for next year. NOT!

The only good things about homework is that it can raise your grade just a little. Sometimes it can be fun with friends and work together to communicate better. I. Have a lot of homework/projects due different days and it is confusing what I have to remember everyday when it is due so I won’t forget to bring it.

I am just glad that school is closing. But it is not over yet. I still have to take EOC and the FSA test which are the final exam tests for the year in Florida. All I know what I’m doing this summer is that I’m going to a one camp so far and, I’m going back to Marco Island. I am so excited.

My first year on the soccer team

0

I have started playing soccer for my school. I was really bad when I started then I got so much better. But I was happy I made the team in the first place because tryouts were hard!

We just played our last game, and we won 4 to 3 in penalty kicks. We scored a goal in the first five minutes of the game. Then we kept it up till the last two minutes. Then they scored a goal. Then we went to overtime. No one scored. Then we went to shoot outs. We had the shot first and we made it. We were all happy that first time. Then they got a goal. Then we missed then they missed. After we made and they missed. Then we made it again then they made it. Then all of it led up to this goal. This person named Santana shot the ball going into the goal and we started running off the field. We were all so happy.  Our coach told us before the game if we win this game we can go to Golden Corral.

Our school is not very good at sports but we are the best at education. So that’s we were happy cause it was our first win (in the season). Union park (who we were going against) never won a game either this season. Also I knew someone on their team. His name is Edwin, he was at my school last year. Even though we won one game I still got better and had a great time. Now volleyball!!!

FirstDayOfSchoolI’m now in 6th grade. But it is a harder then 5th by far. We have about 1 hour of homework everyday. But it is fun to do stuff at school except work. First class of the day is life science. My teacher’s name is Mrs.M. We are learning about bacteria right now. Then I go to world history and do work. We are learning about the elements of geography. My teacher’s name is Mrs.Bailey. Then I go to math her name is Mrs.Vincent. We are comparing and converting decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers. Then I go to PE and we are playing volleyball right now. His name is Coach Wofford. Then I go to lunch. Finally I go to language arts and my teacher’s name is Ms.Vaughn. We are having a vocabulary test Wednesday. I have already got my progress report and I got 3 A’s and 2 B’s. After school I have soccer practice for my school. When I’m done I go home, do my homework.  It’s fun to see my friends and make some new friends.  Since I got to a magnet school, people from outside our neighborhood can come, and there are a lot of new faces.

What gum blows the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project!

78

I picked it because I like candy and because it is fun. The best in my opinion was bubble yum. My favorite part was seeing really bib bubbles.

Last year I did, do pop rocks and soda explode your stomach. That one also evolves candy. They were both really fun.

Here’s a look at my project:

Question/Problem

What brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubbles?

Hypothesis:

I think the gum with the highest sugar content would blow the biggest bubble.  In this experiment, that would be Bubblicious gum.

Grams of Sugar (per piece):

Materials for Which brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project.

Procedures:

  1. Start with one brand of gum.
  2. Each person chews that same brand of gum for 10 minutes.
  3. Begin blowing bubbles.
  4. Blow 5 bubbles with one piece of gum.
  5. Measure each bubble using the ruler and paperclip.  This will give you the bubble diameter in centimeters.
  6. Write down the diameter of each bubble
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each brand of gum.
  8. After collecting all your data find your average.  You find it by adding your data for that brand. Then divide by 5.

Conclusion:

My hypothesis was correct.  The gum with the higher grams of sugar made the largest bubbles.  We also found the gum with the higher sugar content was easier to chew as well as made bigger bubbles.

The gum with the highest sugar (6g) and the biggest bubbles (6.8cm) was Bubblicious.

Goodbye 5th Grade!

At the beginning of the year I was kinda scared of all the work I thought 5th grade would bring. But actually I didn’t have that much work.

I had awesome teachers. My reading teacher was Ms.Franklin she likes Disney. My math teacher was Mr.Anderson he likes super hero’s. My science/social studies teacher was Mrs.Pettingill she likes chocolate and coffee.

My favorite part of the year was our Sea World field trip. The park wasn’t busy and we got to ride all of the roller-coasters.

I think it was the 3rd last day of school there was an Awards Ceremony. I got seven different awards. I got an award for leadership, PE, a behavior award, citizenship, safety patrol, music, and math. The 2nd to last day of school was my play. It was Annie. I was a servant and it was really fun. The last day of school was really awesome. There was music, games, and food. But it is kinda sad because I knew some 8th graders and now they are leaving. But all in the end it was fun.
