In case you are wondering what happened to this site, well, let’s just say that I was experimenting with the themes and I found one that I LOVED!!!!! I have now updated the site, and just for the record, I may or may not change it again in the future. If I do change the theme again, there will be another post like this. Enjoy the new theme!!!

Beginner Knitting

Are you wanting to learn to knit or already are? I’m a knitter myself, and I’m trying to knit a simple lacy shawl right now. I was just looking online for a pattern, when I came across this website. The patterns are for beginners, but they look really fun! If you are looking for yarn, most craft stores carry it, but I get all my yarn at Michael’s. Try some of the patterns, and tell me how they turned out!

Zodiacs and Constellations

Currently at school, we have been learning about the moon and stars. Just recently, we started to learn about our zodiacs, or better known as horoscopes. What are you, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Loe, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces? I’m a cancer. If you aren’t sure, look online! I challenge you guys to look at the stars and try to find your constellation. Which stars make up your constellation? Have fun!

*Some constellations are only visible only some of the year!*


A Quiet Place

“I just  need some time in a quiet place to clear my head”

By: Anonymous

Such a good quote… In Language Arts class at school, we are starting to write narrative stories. The first book we read is called ‘A Quiet Place’. After that, we wrote a paragraph about our own quiet places, using these forms of writing:

  •  Sensory Detail: using senses in writing
  • Simile: using like or as to compare something (Ex. his breath was as smelly as a sewer)
  • Metaphor: like a simile, but no like or as (Ex. knives are a lion’s jaw)
  • Alliteration: all beginning with same letter ( Ex. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers)
  • Rhyme: I think we all know what that is!

so, I challenge you to this: think of your own quiet place and, using all of these forms of writing (alliteration and rhyme optional), write your own paragraph! a+quiet+place

Airborn – Kenneth Oppel

A great book my classmates and I are reading in school right now. This novel is about a kid named Matt Cruse who meets a dead balloonist’s granddaughter, Kate, on the ship he “lives” on – the Aurora. Together, after reading Kate’s grandfather’s journal, they go through an adventure of pirates, magical creatures and other unbelievable events. This book is perfect for when learning about air. Also good for when needing a fantasy book to read. Loved this book? For more amazing novels like this one, look for more of Kenneth Oppel’s books.
