Dennis Oehler Learning from our Differences

On 3/29/18 Dennis Oehler came to our school to talk about his disability. He wanted us to feel comfortable around people that have disabilities. He was gonna be a perfessional soccer player but then he got his injury and he could not play. He had to get his leg removed. He told us this story when his nephew’s class had show in tell his nephew wanted him to come in and show his class how he takes off his leg. He showed us how he removed his leg. He also showed us how he runned with his leg. I really enjoyed it.

Colonial America Book Reflection

One day my teacher told my class that we would do a colonial america book. We first picked our topic. I choose colonial girls because I wanted to see what the difference would be between now and in colonial times. Then we started to research until we felt like we had enough. After we copied down our information on index cards and glued them down into our plan. Then we started to make a draft on our google drive. After we copied our draft into our book. Then we put in pictures into our book. Then we did our glossary. After we used this special app to do our bibliography and put it into our book.

My favorite part of the project is putting the book together because it was fun to put the writing in the book. I disliked that it took a long time to complete the book. The research that I did was interesting because I did not know anything about colonial girls.

I learned about myself is that I am focused when I am researching.

If I did this project again I would not do anything different because the steps are easy and fun.

I hope you enjoy my book.
