I thought that going into this rocketry unit it would not be super fun. We first started with a challenge that Ms. Robert gave to us this challenge was hard but once we finished it gave me a big morale boost. Then we started making our inspiration board where we had to put our rocketry skills to the test, we studied Isaac Newtown and his three laws of motion. We made our rocket short and fat we chose that because then it would have more weight and if it was windy it wouldn’t blow over and move as much. The jobs for launch one were Theo – pump, Leo – video, Chloe – launcher, Katie – the countdown. We launched our first launch was 28.5 meters in the air. If I could change anything I would change the nose cone and that is what we ended up doing. Launch 2 jobs Theo – launcher, Leo – video, – Chloe – countdown, Katie – pump. Our second launch was 27.5. We went lower our change did not do a lot. Here is my video, I hope you enjoy.
What I took away from this book and will stay with me my whole life is even in the hardest of times Augie just Kept Calm An Carried On. This means to me that no matter what augie will just carry on with his life and persevere towards his goal if he had one. My precept is everyone who is an expert was once a beginner.
I think that i’m good at writing about my reading and I think that i’m not so good at making a thesis statement about something not someone.

Halloween is positive for Augie because … As we know his face is deformed so he like’s Halloween because then he gets to wear a mask so people don’t stare at him without the mask. I Know this because in the text it says Halloween is Augie’s favorite holiday because he get’s to wear a mask and this makes people not stare at him.

A precept is a rule about a really important thing. My precept is to have an Attitude of Gratitude. In our read aloud today it was Augie’s first day of school, and I think that he is trying to make his parent’s feel good, but he really doesn’t. One example is Julian he always is sneaky but mean and he is good in front of teachers.

I think that Julian is trying to be really sly one example that i can show this is that, on the first day of school in homeroom julian insulted him with two thing one way he did it is that Julian said whats up with your braid is something from star wars? Is your favorite character Darth Sidius ( Darth sidius has a deformed face like Augie.) This is how Julian is very sly.
