Capstone Blog Post #1 – Choosing A Topic

When I was in 4th 3rd 2nd and 1st grade I felt like everyone was saying what they were doing for capstone and had no clue what I should do. when It was a week from when we start capstone I started stressing out and considering everything. Then I thought of evolution of iPhones but that was already taken. So I thought of the evolution of apple computers and I thought that was a great idea. I could have gone from The first Apple PC with only a typewriter with no screen. To a new laptop that is super fast and can access the internet and has a touch screen bar above they keyboard.

Immigration We video Project

The immigration Project was challenging but fun.it was challenging for multiple reasons one was that I didn’t know anything about Immigration and a had to make a four-minute video from scratch. Another challenge was using We video it was super complicated and iMovie or google slides will definitely be a lot easier. On the other hand, it was very fun because we got to make up a family with our classmates. The photo shoot was also fun because we got to dress up like immigrants. In addition, the feeling of being done was very nice.

Poetry Unit

We had a  poetry unit that we had in our school and I enjoyed it a lot. it was fun to write the first thing that pops into your head and then make it into a rhyme the just like that you got a poem. I also loved Hakius They might be small but they can be very funny and they can prove a point.

Our Big thing In the unit was Our were I’m from Poem It describes memories or moments from your past

Where I’m From

 

I am from mistaking sparkling water for plain water and spitting it out

From Candyland and pillow tosses

A wood house colored white

The house next to school

I am from the fifty watermelon seeds that never sprouted

I am from Dr. Pepper and taco Wednesday

From our neighbors, the Fingers, and other neighbors that I never met

I am from “Stop fidgeting” and “Don’t pull your hair”

And from mostly blueberry waffles

From hiding under the bed

And Passover at the Parkers

I am from Dick and Jane and Dick and Jane

I am from latkes and repulsive lamb meatballs

I am from the camp bus next to the inconvenient pop-up carnival

From lots of generations of living in Michigan

From a golden stuffed dog named Snoopy

Who came to life in the form of our Goldendoodle, Riley

 

I am from those moments of my life
