McDowell what is it? How do I feel about it? Is it good? Is it bad? Homework? How it going to change my life? Will I get to see my friends? Or will I even remember my schedule find my classes? Understand everything? Help I can’t do this.
McDowell is a school that I am going to next year. It is for 7-8 and I will be in seventh. But I’m nervous of going from the big kid to little kid. Even when we were at McDowell for the tour all of the seventh graders were like “look at all the little kids.” I we are only a year younger than them.
I don’t think McDowell is going to be bad but I also do not think that McDowell is going to be good ether. The reason why I think it is going to be bad because I will not be able to use calculators because it is going to be really hard also switching and only having three minutes to do it.
McDowell is going to effect my life by having more homework and I do not like to do homework but I still do it but more means busy. Especially when I want to do three different think and I think all of them are after school. Which is softball(after school), girl’s basketball(after school), flag ( after school).
One of the main things that I am worried about is not being able to see my friends. I have a lot of friends but I might not get to see them that much. I know some friends that are doing quire with me. But my best best best friend is not doing quire or any of the sports with me. So that only leaves class and we can’t talk during class. I am really nervous that this could ruin our relationship.
I am nervous about McDowell. I am nervous because what if I can not remember my classes. Or stuff I need for that class.
What do you think about McDowell? I hope you guys liked my post and my points of McDowell.
To the D.A.R.E shirts to Smoking Suzy and her boyfriend Chewing Chuck, we have learned a lot. And to put it in just a couple of paragraphs is hard. But if I really had to do it, it would go a little something like this.
D.A.R.E. What is it? What dose it mean? D.A.R.E. means Drug Abuse Resistance Education. It is a lot more than I thought. It helps kids, all around the United States Of America makes life time decisions. Millions of kids have had 6th grade D.A.R.E. Some have lessened, some have not.
I have learned a lot in D.A.R.E. About situations, drugs, alcohol, and bullies. And I want to share some of that information with you about the stuff that I have learned. First I’ll start off with Smoking Suzy. Smoking Suzy is a doll to help us learn about tobacco she smokes and she also has a lot of tar in her lungs. Same thing with her boyfriend Chewing Chuck. Deputy Thomas show us how much tar Suzy smokes in a year and to think to have all that tar in her lungs that is nasty. I also have learned about how kids start tobacco. Wich is stuff like big league chewing gum wich is shredded up to looks like chewing tobacco. Same thing with candy cigarettes. We have done a lot of things in D.A.R.E that will help me make a right decision with doing drugs and tobacco also alcohol.
In the second week of D.A.R.E. class we used the DUI goggles witch showed us what it would be like to be drunk vision wise and we had to walk on a fake bridge without falling in to the lava and between that and The Jar Of Tar I pledge not to do drugs alcohol or tobacco. Thank you Deputy Thomas for teaching me that.
We just had a presentation by the hemlock heroes. Here they are. With our teacher Mrs. Huysman. When we first got in there they asked up what should at the bottom pointing to some blocks. Long story short we made a pyramid of the ecosystem. Here it is. I had lots of fun but I want to share something else with you.
If you look at the picture with the hemlock heroes is a giant earth ball. What we did with the giant earth balls was he gave us a name of species that we were and told us to get in to two different circles but spread apart. We did and then they brought out the giant earth ball you see in the background and we had to roll it in between us to represent the energy. Then they would say for a species to get out of the circle and it got harder to do. So that was to represent if you take something one thing out of the ecosystem it effects everything.
We also did something else that would represent that we had to do thing like they would do with the ecosystem and eventually it would get where only one or two people / species was taking out so eventually the ecosystem could not run anymore.
I just had my OAA today well the reading one I still have math on Wednesday. I hope that every body did well on there reading and study hard for the math test. I wish everyone good luck.
Mr.McGuire said that if we take up the whole two and a half hours we could have and extra hour of recces on top of our normal recces which I did, and if our whole class did we got two extra hours of recces and guess what our whole class did yeah now I get two extra hours of recces.
D.A.R.E. What is it? What about it is the best thing? What have I learned?What will I remember?
What I have learned at D. A. R. E. is well I already knew that drugs and alcohol is bad for you but I have learned what D. A. R. E. stands for witch is Drugs Abuse Resistance Education. I have also learned how to solve situations better. You define the problem assess it resolve then evaluate it and see if you made a good choice or not. And that has helped me in some situations.
One example that it has helped me in is my grandma wanted me to stay all night but my sister wanted me to say home. First I had to define the problem witch I just did the I have to assess the problem. So I either go to my grandma’s or go stay with my sister. Resolving time I decide to go to my grandma’s . Evaluate I think I made a good choice because I had fun and I got to see my grandma and I still get to see my sister everyday.
What I enjoy most about D. A. R. E. was getting to put the goggles on that make your vision bury like if you were just on a low level of drunk. While having the goggles on we would have to walk on a fake bridge without falling into the lava. Then deputy Thomas would through a base ball at you and see if you could catch witch I couldn’t but that was still the funniest thing about D.A. R. E. so far.
One thing that I will remember about D.A.R.E. is when deputy Thomas said “Draw the things that you like to do when your stressed.” And one boy put playing catch with his dog and deputy Thomas said that his dog looked like a alligator.
Well now you know about D. A. R. E.
The Host is a great book. The Host is fiction. The author of The Host is Stephenie Meyer , Stephenie also wrote The Twilight Saga. Which some people like and some people do not. I am not a fan of The Twilight Saga. But I am definitely a fan of The Host. Don’t let the fact that it is the same author as The Twilight Saga. It is a really good book.
It is also a movie. Here is the trailer.
I do not want to say anything the trailer gives enough a way. I really hope you enjoy the book!!!!!! Who am I kidding you will LOVE it!?!?!?!
First I need to tell you what book that I am reading and that book is Katie Kazoo’s Switcheroo Holly Jolly Christmas. Katie Kazoo is the main character in this book of course but there is a lot mores characters. Some characters are Mom , Katie, Grandma, and here Uncle Nick in here family. But there is also a family that she gives a tree to Katie does and Holly a tree sales girl.
The book Katie Kazoo’s Switcheroo Holly Jolly Christmas Is about Katie Kazoo switches body with people when a gust of wind comes threw and while mom is working Grandma and Uncle Nick take Katie Christmas tree shopping. While Katie is looking for trees a gust of wind come and she switches with the really mean tree sale girl named Holly. Long story short she end up giving a tree away to a family that could not afford one. After Katie switched back she realized she did something she cost Holly her job.
But I still like Katie Kazoo the most because she was nice and caring even though she made Holly lose her job. And the reason for that is she made a good reputation come off of Holly. And that made Holly feel happy and it made everybody feel good about Holly. And that is why my favorite character is Katie Kazoo,
