My Classroom is working on a project call Capstone. It is one of the Biggest Projects in 5th grade. We have too choose a topic that we are interested in. It took me a lot time too think about what I wanted to do for capstone. I then decided I wanted to do it on Giant Pandas. I wanted to do my Capstone on Giant Pandas because Giant Pandas are my favorite animal and they are so interesting. When you had your topic you have to make up a question that is related to your topic. My teacher helped me with my question. My question was “How have Humans affected Giant Pandas and how can Humans improve relationship with pandas”
In my Classroom we have been working on immigration. We needed to choose a country in Europe and do research about that Country’s immigrants. I decided to choose Germany because part of my Family is from Germany. I researched things like what did you take to Ellis island? What are Germen girl names? What are some push and pull factors? It took some time doing all of this. When we finished doing our research I had to do a Wevideo about German Immigrants. It was hard but fun at the same time. I had a some trouble making the Wevideo. But overall it was fun experience
In My class we are working on poetry. I really like poetry. In my opinion poetry is really fun. I mostly write funny poems and poems about animals. But the whole grade needs to writing about where you are from. I don’t really like the idea but I gave it a try. It was kind of hard because I’ve lived a lot of places and I have a lot of childhood memories. But over all the poetry unit really fun.
Today I had to teach 5th graders how to work with a sphero. I was nervous because we me and my group had to teach 5th graders two things in only 30 mins. We had to teach Two groups of 5th graders. The first group wasn’t so good. In the first group there was a kid that wasn’t hear for the first class so we had to teach him the basics. But over all the first group was okay because we had extra time to play games. Are second group was much better. They all collaborate and paid attention. They had a lot of more extra time that the first group had. Overall teaching 5th graders was a fun experience.
Today I taught 5th graders how to work with a sphero. I was really nervous. Me and my group had to teach two groups of 5th graders how to work with a sphero in 30 minutes. I was scared that we wouldn’t have enough time to finish the lesson. But are first group was okay but one student was being a little negative. But overall the first group was okay because we had some extra time and we got to play some games. The second group was much better. Maybe it was because I was not so nervous. The second group had also some extra time to play some fun games with the sphero. Overall my first sphero lesson was a very good experience.

Today I read the ” I have a dream” speech by Martin Luther King jr. and I was asked if what Martin Luther King jr. said in the speech “I have a dream” realized and what I think is that most of what he said was realized but sometimes people don’t treat black people the same way they treat white people.Black people go to the same school as white people they also play together and they all go to the same bathroom but some people still treat black people different.
What Martin Luther King jr. said in the speech “i have a dream” has been realized because along time ago there were colored bathrooms and there also were colored schools there were colored tables.But now there aren’t colored tables and there also has been a marked skin president because Martin Luther King Jr. made it possible.
But not everything has changed because of Martin Luther King Jr. As I said some people still don’t treat black people equally.Some people still think that black people shouldn’t have the same rights as white people.For example some people don’t get good jobs because of his/her skin tone or they don’t get the same respect for there skin tone.
I think that cursive should not be taught in school because in the feature people are probably just gonna write in computers and cursive would not be important.I also think that cursive would be a waste a time because its hard trying to learn cursive and you can use all that time to learn something way more important than cursive.Cursive will also not be important to go to a good collage or a good job.
I choose to do my featured article in taking of dogs.I choose that topic because I have had a lot of experience with dogs and i also love dogs.Doing my feature article was not easy,we had to first wright a draft in google docs.After we did finished doing everything on google docs we past all are text and pictures on pages.We put it on pages so our article would be more organized.
While doing my article I had some trouble thinking on what to wright in my article.The hardest part for me was the introduction.I never new what to put.

I read the article about cloning pets.I thought cloning your pet is a really cool thing.But I also think it could be dangerous.I think it was cool because you could clone a dead pet and you would have your pet again,but it wouldn’t be the”exact”same pet but it would be very similar.But in the other hand am also something might not go as planned out and the clone might be funny looking or might be evil!?
