Dora’s Day At The Movies

My buddy Dora wrote a story about when she went to the movies with her grandma, her dad, and her sister. She saw the movie Ferdinand. She called her story “The day I Love the Movies”. She wrote about the car ride to the movies, about where they sat, how they felt, how they left and what they ate after the movies, they ate celery and hot dogs. The movie was about bull named Fernando who didn’t want to fight. Her favorite part of the movie was when they fought.  She thought that’s the part when Fernando got a cut was very scary. In her book Dora spent a lot of time on her illustrations. Her story show how fun spending quality time with your family can be.

Corpus Callosum

Our brain is divided into two hemisphere, the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere. The thing connecting the left and right hemisphere is called the corpus callosum. When you write with your left hand the right hemisphere is working, and if you write with your right hand the left hemisphere is working, and the two  hemispheres can send signals to each other. The reason that they can send signals is the corpus callosum. Some people have to have the corpus callosum removed from their brain. The reason some people have to get it removed is because they have a lot of seizures and getting it removed stops the spread of seizures from hemisphere to hemisphere, however it also stops the two hemispheres form sending signals to each other.  For example if you cover your left eye and look at a pencil with your right eye, you can write the what you saw with your left hand, because your left hemisphere can tell your right hemisphere what it saw. But if you have your corpus callosum removed and cover your left eye and look at a pencil with your right eye, you can’t write what you saw with your left hand, because the two hemispheres have no way to connect without your corpus callosum.

Dora’s Art

These two sculptures were made by my buddy Dora. What I love about them is the amount of detail that she put into each one. What I also like about her work is that it is very unique, and that it is her original creation, and I think that it shows that she is a very creative and innovative person. What I like about kindergarten  art is that it is always very colorful, and that it shows off their style.

Buddies

My buddy is a little girl named Dora. She is very sweet and has her own unique style. She has this dress that is grey with a variety if different color hearts all around which I love. She is always looking for the bright side in things. She is always willing to share. Dora is very creative, and artistic. For example she made two very adorable unique sculptures which you will see in my next post. Another example of that is for halloween she made her own robot costume! It was very obvious that she put a lot of time and effort into it. She is a great buddy, and I can’t wait to spend my school year with her.

The Food Bank

The food bank is a charity that provides food for people who need it. There are thousands of charities like the food bank. I particularly like the food bank because even if you are to young to volunteer in person, it doesn’t mean that you cant help at all.

Some of the ways that you can help are you could prepare meals, serve meals, or if you are to young to volunteer in person you could send food to the charity. There goal is to help end hunger across the world. The food bank isn’t just in one place, they have opportunities all across the globe. If you go on there website you will see all the different events they have.

Another charity that is great is the children’s hope chest. There mission is to help children in your community that suffer from poverty, abuse, neglect, and illness. They allow children to volunteer, instead of just adults.
