Savvy

At home I am reading a book called Savvy. Savvy means to have a “magical power”. In this book a girl named Mibs is turning 13 and is discovering her savvy just like her other siblings went through. She has so much pressure on her like her dad just got into a car accident right before she turns 13 and also she is trying to get to her father up at Salina Hope Hospital. It all depends on her savvy, family and friends. Her savvy will help her get up to Salina and find her dad. Everyone needs to help. I might already even know what her savvy is because in the story when she wakes up in the morning her sister woke up at the same time as well as her brother’s turtle that has been sleeping everyday for so long woke up. Maybe she has the power to wake everyone up. That relates to her father because maybe during the car accident, Mibs dad got really hurt and died and maybe she has the power to wake him up again. Since a driver named Lester is a delivery man and is heading up to Salina to deliver something and also is taking Mibs, maybe once they get close she can use her savvy to wake her father up and he will be ok in time for her birthday. I wonder how she is going to figure out her power? Is her dad going to make it in time for Mibs 13th birthday?

My Constitution Project

In school my class and I are working on the constitution. My teacher gave my class and I a turn to roll a small box that has a topic on each side of the box. For example, on one side there was a topic about places and on another side there was a topic about events. I got technology. Then, we had to roll another small box. That box was about how you were going to put that information together. This time I got photo novel. That means that I can do a slide show, ask a question about the topic (how did they build this?, when did they build this?, who built it?), answer that showing photos and we also can write one or two sentences to answer the question. After that, my teacher showed us a list of topics we could research on. On the list I picked to research sewing machines. Since I’m doing technology some of my questions were, “What are the parts of the sewing machine?” or “How did the sewing machine work?” Now on that slide we get to write one or two sentences to answer the question and then put some pictures on the slide that relates to the question. I have learned a lot about the constitution and hope to learn more. This project was a really fun experience!
