Where I’m from

Every year at my school we have a poetry festival in April. Well the time has come. Usually we all make different poems but this year because we’re in fifth grade we all made the same poem. We all made a Where I’m from poem.

We had a couple of weeks to finish it so I decided to take my time on it. I didn’t want to do something similar to other peoples. At first I thought of doing an accross stick poem. But when I tried it I didn’t like so much. So I decided to do a recap of my day and have it rhyming. I started and ended with the same stanza of my bed because I like my bed very much. Around the same time I hung it up on the wall for everyone to see Mrs. Edwards took a video of me reciting my poem. Here it is:

Capstone #1 Choosing A Topic

Skiing and golf have been my passion since kindergarden and I’ve always wanted to do something related to those two sports for my Capstone project. But now that Capstone has has came along I’ve added some other things to my list.

From the start of the project I was deciding between four topics. Skiing, Golf, Shoes, and I-phones. Pretty early on I cut I-phones because I’m not really a technology person. It doesn’t interest me. Eventually, after a little time I cut golf. I have huge interest in golf but it just doesn’t seem right for Capstone. So just like that I’m down to two. I’m really having a lot of trouble deciding between the two. But I actually think it won’t make that much of a difference if I choose either of them because one of the inquiry questions I came up with for skiing was, “Does the right equipment help you make a better performance?” That is very similar to shoes because I could ask if shoes help you do better in the sport the shoes are made for.

I’m still fighting between shoes and skiing but I’m 80% sure I’ll do skiing. Researching will help me perform better in races. Until next time, bye.
