I love this time of year it is the holidays Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa I celebrate Hanukkah and kind of Christmas. You might think how I don’t exactly celebrate Christmas it is for a member in my family who does. Anyways I am going to Florida because a lot of people in my family live there and and my grandparents on my moms side stay there half the year. ( My cousins will also be there moms and dads side). The ones on my dads side I don’t see a lot. Anyways Hanukkah is over you get a gift each night there are 8 nights. It is fun because a lot of my family go there every year so I get a while to hang out with them. This is how my break will go. Hope you have a good holiday safe travels. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Chicken Sunday and My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother essay

People may not be as they seem, you may think something about them but then you see the other side of them. In the books Chicken Sunday and My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco, there is someone in the books that Trisha thinks one way about them, but then see’s them in a different way. Trisha’s older brother Richie and Mr.Kodinsky.

In Chicken Sunday Mr.Kodinski did not seem the kindest man at first, but when she got to know him he seemed like a sweet man. For example Mr.Kodinski seemed grumpy and mean, but then the kids talked to him and he wasn’t mean at all he was kind. In My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother Richie was not kind all the time when they were alone together. For example Richie always challenged Trishia and teased her. Like Richie challenged Trisha “Bet I can pick more blackberries then you.” He also teased Trisha by saying “I’m four years older than you, too, little twerp… Always have been always will be!”. This is how was not nice to Trisha.

In Chicken Sunday the kids seemed mean for “egging” Mr.Kodinski shop but Mr.Kodinski realized they didn’t do it when the kids gave him beautiful eggs from his hometown that they made. For example Trisha was upset because they did not egg his shop, but Mr.Kodinski thought that she did. To show him that she did not egg his shop they made eggs from his hometown and decorated them and made them beautiful for him. In My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother Trisha was disrespectful to her older brother because he was  disrespectful. Which means that he really does care about Trisha. For example since Richie always challenged Trisha, Trisha challenged him back that she thought he could not handle.One time Trisha challenged him “Bet I can eat more of raw rhubarb then you can without getting the puckers!” Trisha wasn’t so nice to like she said to Richie a lot “I can’t stand you, Richard Barber… I double dog can’t stand you!”

People may not be as they seem, you may think something about them but then you see the other side of them. In Chicken Sunday Mr.Kodinski showed great kindness by giving the kids what they wanted which was a hat for their grandmother. For example she loved it and she really wanted it and Mr.Kodinsky knew and gave it to them. In My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother Richie was very kind. Trisha fell of a merry-go round and she passed out and her brother carried her home and got the doctor. This shows that people may not be as they seem, you may think something about them but then you see the other side of them. Trisha’s grandmother said “I don’t know what we would have done. Your brother carried you all the way home, and then he had to run to get Dr .Lee.” This shows that Richie actually cares about Trisha. This is great kindness.

People may not be as they seem, you may think something about them but then you see the other side of them. You might think someone is mean or scary, but then you talk to them and they are really nice. You might think they are someone they are not. You just have to get to know the person. You can’t just think something about someone because you saw them in one way.

Stop Motion

In class we have started a stop motion unit. We were allowed to make our own groups, which I was happy about. We tried two ways to make our own teams, but that did not work. Finally, we made fair teams and I was happy about who was on my team. I thought it was a good team. We had a team of three. The people on my team were Lexi and Mia. I thought we can make a really good film.

After that we picked out our legos we got stormtrooper, chewbacca, a motorcycle dude, a mohawk guy, and a girl. Once we had are legos we needed to think of what we were going to do. We made a video, but it was not good. Lucky for us we had another time to make a new video, which I think was really good. I did not make the whole thing. I had help by Lexi and Mia because they were in my group. I have to be honest and say it was not me who thought of the idea. It had some funny parts, interesting parts, some really cool parts, and some really good parts. I was proud of our film especially because it was hard. Like, one thing that happened was that the camera moved, and we could not find the exact spot but we still got close. I was really happy with our film and I was new to stop motion, but I did have two people who helped me.

This is my Stop Motion Video (Not the whole video)

My Writing Journey Thus Far

My writing journey this year so far has taught me many new ways of writing. It has been a good experience. I think that my writing has been improved this year. One thing I have done is narrative writing that is a kind of writing that I have done a lot this I think that narrative writing is definitely one of the topics I have become stronger in this year. Another is literary essay which is something that when I was learning about I thought I would not be able to write one good. Literary essays I feel aren’t my strongest subject but not my least strongest. I do like writing it has been fun. One thing I am pretty sure of is that I have become a stronger writer. I am proud of my work that I have done this year so far.
