Title: Candytopia is a wonderful world full sweet treat

Summary

If you think a regular art museum is boring, then try Candytopia. Candytopia is a place where all the art is made of candy. Jackie Sorkin once said “Candytopia was created for the people’s happiness” and more about the wonderous place. The marshmallow pit is a fluffy pit of delicious marshmallows. It dumps a bucket every few minutes. But don’t eat them they’re fake. Unlike other museums you are free to touch the art it may break but people can come and fix it. Most art took 1,000 hours to create from scratch. Some other exhibits are the clock room where chocolate clocks hang from the wall. Also, the room where the floor is painted like a sky. And a sprinkle spray gun.   

 

Personal Response

My Dad Is Like An Older Brother To Me!!

Sometimes people tell me

“My mom is so nice but my dad is kinda mean” Well sure, sometimes dads can be mean but I’m the opposite. I have found that my dad is like a brother to me. He never tells me to go to bed and he plays tricks on me. My dad always helps me with basketball, my dad never yells at me except when I’m annoying, my dad has the best sense of humor and my dad and I like a lot of the same stuff. I like that he acts like that because I’ve always wanted an older brother.                                               

 

One reason he is like an older brother is because, he reads me Harry Potter to me every night and we both love it. Also he never tells me to go to bed because he wants to keep reading Harry Potter. The only time he does tell me to bed is because I’m being annoying. One time we were reading and my mom came in and said

“You are both in trouble” then she left and my dad said

“Go to bed. Why aren’t you asleep” and I laughed. My dad is very funny.

 

Another reason why my dad is like a brother to me is because he likes to pick on me and we like the same stuff. He always makes up funny, “jokes”. We both have the same sense of humor so obviously I have to laugh. It’s also fun to play along with his jokes. One time I was being rude (have i  mentioned i am very rude?)  and so my dad said “this looks like a good place to walk home from”

“Oh yes” I said I can actually go to Peachwave.”  and he said

“You could be out there all night” and the I said

“I’d love to” and then I pretended to get out of the car go to Peachwave  and eat frozen yogurt🍧. We all laughed. Some stuff that we have in common are we both like basketball and we both like a podcast called THE ADVENTURES OF FINN CASPIAN! 🤖I recommended it.

 

The final reason that my dad it’s like an older brother to me is because he helps me practice basketball🏀. He always takes me to the park to a play one-on-one game. He has really helped me be a star.⭐ Were both very competitive so the scor’s always close. Once we were playing and he kept blocking all my shots and kept dunking the ball but I still won.  

 

I know that every dad has some dad, but some dads have brother.

Colonial America!!! (Summary. )

Colonial America had changes  but the colonists and the Native Americans took them differently. maybe because the colonists didn’t know what they were disrupting .

 

Native Americans were in many different tribes all with a different language.

 

The colonists however were in 13 big groups and all spoke English.

 

They traded with each other. Corn+ ferns for iron + colonial cloth. For many years they lived in peace  but as more people came they used important natural resources and claimed their land. This led to times of grief . For example King Philip’s war.

 

The first settlers came to find gold they were greedy and wanted to to get rich. but almost got extinct in the New World. Other colonists came to practice  religious freedom and others joined in.

 

the 13 colonies are Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Delaware, and Maryland

Colonial Americans were people with different,special values and ideas just like us. Different doesn’t mean bad or disgusting it just means different.
