Halloween!

Trick or treat!

I absolutely love halloween! You get to get candy and wear a really cool costume for a night.

This halloween what I wanted to be was totally amazing.

Something different and something that no one really has thought to be.  But I cannot take all the credit to what my dream halloween costume is going to look like. Bethany Mota created the costume idea and how to do it.

Bethany Mota! aka popular youtuber

 For Halloween my dream costume is a minion from despicable me!

This is Bethany in her costume, it is also the same one i will eventually make in the future!

To make this costume it takes a little while, but if you need help ask an adult and make sure it is okay with them first that you can make your costume. Here is Bethany Mota’s tutorial on how to make it.

Along with Patriotic clothing we listen to music about our nation such as Yankee Doodle written by Richard Shuckburgh

around 1770′s during war and the Declaration of Independence.  This song is a familiar symbol of American Patriotism.

Summer Reading!

Every year my school picks a list of 15 books for 7th and 8th graders to read over the summer. Basically,

the previous 7th and 8th graders recommend books they have liked and think other students will like as well.

Unfortunely, I’m having an extremely hard time choosing my book for this summer so, I’m going to show to the book preview videos and have you vote on which book I should read.

Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25         By Richard Paul Evens

Revived By Cat Patrick

 

The Raft By S.A. Bodeen

Whatever preview you thought was interesting please leave a comment. I’m stuck between these 3 books. Thanks

A Wrap Of The Year And A Big Step Up!

This past month has been memorable.  From our first day of sixth grade to our last, it has been a terrific

last year in elementary.  Now that I have graduated and will be drifting away from Mr. Avery, my sister

will have him next year for a math and science teacher! Here is an animoto of my graduation.. sorry its kinda short!

 

Now the middle school is going to be a big step. From a 32 group of students to at least 300 students!

So hears how it works! Three different towns combined in to one school district, and there are 3 teams (which

is a group of kids you have classes with) which picks and puts you randomly on a team. These three team

s are 7-1, 7-2, and 7-3. I am on 7-2, with a bunch of my friends but everyone makes new friends when they

start going to the middle school and even the high school. I can’t wait to see my old friends and eventually my

new ones next year. I know, I and others will have an amazing experience at the middle school and in the future too!

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do!

Every since our Winter concert 4th,5th, and 6th grade has been busy working on chorus concert songs. This spring our theme was “Disney Favorites”. This included 4th grade who  played their recorders and 5th and 6th grade who sung songs such as “Circle of Life, Siamese Cat Song, Hakuna Matata, Candle on the Water, I wanna be Like You, and Supercalifragilisticexpialiodocious.”

This is a video of both grades singing Hakuna Matata and Supercalifragilisticexpialiodocious.

Thank you Mr. Avery for recording our concert and thanks to Mrs. Cardinal for putting on a great Spring Concert this year.
