In this paragraph you will  read about the problem that me and my partners faced and how we became  successful. First we have to check what sides the magnets were on because the magnetic field will only work if  the magnets are both on the same side. So when we figured that out we put three magnets on the track one in the middle and one on each side. So then we did the same thing on our vehicle. But when we tried that it did not work. So then our teacher Ms.Badurski told us that maybe we did not need the strip magnet in the middle. So we took the middle strip magnets off then our vehicle floated. So our strategy was to put two strip magnets on the way ends of our  vehicle and we put the other two strip magnets on the way ends of our track. So the two magnets on the sides will match up with each other and sense all of our magnets were on the north side and if the magnets are on the same side they repel. So with all of that it made our vehicle floated across the track! By doing all of that work that I told you about in this first paragraph that is the problem we faced and how we became successful!

To improve our track and vehicle we did the same thing but we just added more magnets on top of other magnets. So first we put one more layer on then we put another layer on. so  we did the same thing just with more magnets our vehicle floated hire so it holds more weight and it makes our vehicle stronger and better. We also thought of some other strategies too like with ring or disc magnets. But we figured that the strategy that I told you guys about is probably the best and easiest way to improve our vehicle. So we ended up doing that strategy that I told you guys about. Also when we did it our vehicle floated hire and it could hold more weight so it can hold more marbles. We want to try and get the most marbles in the dixie cup on our vehicle and we ended up with 28 marbles. Maybe we could of had more if we added more layers of strip magnets. So there will be more power and more power is better so we could hold more marbles in the cup on our vehicle. Also not only did our vehicle have to float it also had to be able for someone to push it across the track and it had to still be floating and holding all of the marbles. But before we did that we tried to use ring magnets to improve are track and vehicle. But it did not work! Then we kepted thinking and thinking then we just tried everything with ring magnets and it did not work! So that is how we figured out that the problem was the ring magnets. That is how we figured out that improving strategy that I told you about in this second paragraph. That is how we improving our transportation system so it would work.

I liked working with partners  because they thought of ideas and if we had a problem they  would help us fix problems that we could not figure out. My partners also helped me put  everything together. They also helped me pick which magnets and what strategy that we should use for our maglev transportation system. They also had great ideas to improve like the one that I told you guys about in paragraph 2. We also thought that maybe our vehicle would be to heavy but we tried it anyway and it worked. One of the problems that me and my partners faced was after we did the design then we improved it did not work then we figured out the problem. The problem was that one of the magnets on the track was on the south side! So we just turned the magnet over to the north side then it worked! Our vehicle may have been more heavy than last time but it held more marbles and the more marbles our vehicle can hold and still be able for someone to push the vehicle across the track is better! With all of that super hard work that me and my partners did we ended up with a few different amounts of numbers for the marbles in the cup on our vehicle. But actually I think that the marbles filled up the cup and we had to start to put some of the marbles on our vehicle! Well with all of that hard work that we did are final number of marbles was 28! Also our first score of the number of marbles was I think about fourteen or maybe it was fifteen. So we really improved our vehicle sense the first time that we got our vehicle float and our vehicle to be able to float and with someone pushing the vehicle across the track and our vehicle is still floating. So we definitely improved our vehicle a lot! That is all of the reasons why I love working, creating, deciding, problem solving, and improving with partners.


My Amazing Mom and Dad

 Have you ever been thankful for something or someone but you were too embarrassed to admit it? Well if you were then read my blog. I am thankful for my mom and dad. One of the reasons that I am thankful for my mom and dad is because they read with me. For example,  a month ago I asked them if they would read with me then we went on the couch and we read Harry Potter. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because they make me food. For example, last night my mom made me pasta for dinner. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because they also tell me stories last night my dad told me an awesome story I loved it so much. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because they also give me shelter. Another reason I am thankful for my mom and dad is because they play with me. For example,   last week my dad played basketball with me and he even taught me some of his amazing moves. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because they also buy me amazing toys. For example,I think last year my dad took me on a trip and bought me a Hover Ball at CVS and I still have it today and it is super awesome. But it is still not as awesome as my mom and dad who are super amazing. I am also thankful for my awesome mom and dad because they also help me put on my clothes if I want them to help me or not. They also help me take my clothes off too. For example, like yesterday my mom and dad both helped me to take off my shoes because they were super hard to take off but they were actually comfy to wear believe it or not. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because  they also  drive me to my sports or they walk me to them. For example, last month my mom drove me to basketball and also for example two months ago my dad walked with me to my lacrosse. I am also thankful for my mom and dad because they also let me go to the grocery store and they also let me choose what foods I want. For example, I think maybe two months ago or three months ago my mom took me to Stop and Shop. I know that if I get hurt bad or super duper duper sick or something else that is really bad I know that my mom and dad both of them will always be there for me.

Creature Teacher

 “Time to go to the book fair” said Mrs.Badurski. So we walked down the steps and we went into the library most of us saw our parents. I saw my mom but not my dad. Our librarian Ms.Byrnes recommended six books for third grade and I am in third grade. One of the books are Creature Teacher and Ms. Byrnes also said that all of the recommended books are near each other. So the first book I saw was Creature Teacher, there were only two Creature Teacher books left. So after I saw the book I took my mom’s hand and pulled her to the bookshelf and I did it! I got the book Creature Teacher!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           “Yes, I got it!” I said to myself. Also I forgot to mention that Ms. Byrnes our librarian read like the first chapter and then explained about the books that she recommended. The book fair was almost over and I bought my books so I went to the stairs because our classroom is really close to the stairs and there are two chairs next to the stairs so me and mom sat down and I opened up my Creature Teacher book and my mom opened up a book that she loved as a kid. So I didn’t read the first chapter because I already told you that my librarian Ms. Byrnes read like the first chapter of every book she recommended. So chapter two is called rule two and the first sentence in chapter two was Click Click Click Click…Bang! I was so shocked that was like the experiment and craziest  sentence ever and I know that weirdest and craziest are not words. Also when Ms. Byrnes talked about the book she said that the kids think he is nice but the kids do not know when there teacher gets mad or sad he turns into a monster that is ugly and creepy and super scary and I also wonder if the kids find out something bad will maybe happen to the kids and what if the kids also what if the kids say to the principle that when they’re teacher gets mad or sad that he turns into a big and ugly and super scary monster that is super mean. Also don’t forget that there are rules in the school so when he is happy or any other emotion that is not mad or sad and everyone is having a super time they can get caught breaking one of the rules in class and I think that Jake’s well the main character’s class could end up like pushing, shoving, and loud giggling. That is what happens if you get  caught breaking the rules  well that is your punishment if  you break the rules. So far in Creature Teacher well me reading Creature Teacher has been so funny and awesome I can’t wait to read more. I hoped you enjoyed reading my blog post and I hope you think it is good.

Cool Cursive Writing

So far this year my class has learned about six different cursive letters. We started with c because, c’s is super easy it’s just like a normal c. Now I say about everyone in my class knows every cursive letters always has a tail at the end of the cursive letter. After we finished c we moved on to a. In cursive a looks like this a. By that picture I think you know that a is just like an a in print but with a little tiny tail at the end to connect to the next cursive letter. I love cursive writing and to write in cursive because it’s like normal writing but it’s way cooler and it looks nicer. But writing in cursive is super harder than writing in any other way in the whole entire world. So far I’d say that cursive is my favorite topic in third grade that my teacher Ms. Badurski has taught me and my friends. This year is probably going to be a  great school year. I hope you enjoyed reading about cursive. I love writing in cursive and I can’t wait to learn more about cursive and also to learn more how to write in cursive and I hope you’re as excited as me bye.
