Wings of Fire!!

Wings of fire is an amazing book series about dragons. These thrilling fantasy books take the reader to a whole new world of adventure, friendships, and war. These books are put into their own separate series based on prophecies. You will meet all sorts of different characters as they move through journeys to save their people and the world. Oh and it’s not only massive dragons that live in these books but humans too (also go by scavengers). These books will suck you in while you read but while some books are long and boring in part, there will always be an amazing plot or new journey next. You might want to take them in order but on the way be sure to check out the side series called Legends these books while going back in dragon time and journey through human times. I hope you read these amazing books and ENJOY!!!

Wisdom Tales Comic!

Wisdom tales are stories from all shapes and sizes that come from all over the world and all have a moral or lesson. First, in class we read a book that had a bunch of wisdom tales from all over the world. Then after we had read the book, we each chose a tale that we would make into a comic. The wisdom tale that I chose was “The Red and Blue Coat”. I chose this tale because I  thought it had a good moral and it would be fun to make.  The story is about two friends that are very close and a tricksters tricks them into arguing over what color the coat is until the trickster stops them and shows them the coat. So I started working and what you see above are my results. First, I used the app Sketchbook to draw all of the scenes that happen. Then when I was done with that I used the app comic life3 to put my drawings into a comic and type all of the dialogue out. Then I checked it with my teacher and printed it!

Mountain Biking Race Team

Welcome back to my second mountain biking post!! This post we will be going over the topic of racing and teams. There are many types of mountain bike races, the first one is cross country. If you’re racing cross country then you will be racing with everyone else in the race so you’ll have to pass people to make your way to the top. The second type of racing is downhill. Downhill racing is not only a type of racing but its a whole other type of mountain biking. When you’re racing downhill you’ll most likely be on a bike that is designed for it and well you’re going downhill but its not just as easy as that; there are big obstacles and jumps and tables. Then there’s enduro racing, enduro is a race were you’re doing everything, uphill, downhills, skills, technical, and more, but the cool thing about enduro is that you don’t have the pressure of someone passing you because its all timed. You get timed at the start and then each person goes and whoever got the fastest time wins. That’s really all for racing but there’s many more types of races. The second thing I’m going to talk about is teams. You can join a racing team and you’ll go to practices and then after a little bit you and your team will start racing. If you want to sign up for a team look them up because they are everywhere. Your school might even have one. That’s all thanks for listening!

Language Arts Planking Adventure

Do you people of this beautiful earth like planking? Well in my language arts class we planked every day increasing by the week a little bit each time. We did this from September 13, 2021 to November 23, 2021. The increasing step is called the compound effect. The compound effect helps you get more comfortable and helps you get better with what you’re doing. So we did this in our class using planking on the last day our teacher told us to plank as long as we can. One of the things that was challenging in the plank challenge was committing to doing it every day. Another thing I noticed was that if I did it every day it got easier and easier.

One thing that I thought was great about this challenge is that it not only helps build up your physical strength but it also help build up your mental strength. So when the challenge ended I thought that I would slowly start losing this mental strength so every day I tried meditating and it really help and made me better at planking.

Then she told us to pick a new habit and do it for the rest of the year. So I picked my new habit. So every morning I wake up and do push-ups, sit-ups , and Russian twists. I also plank for 15-28 mins every day and I’m hopeful to get to 1 hour near the end of the year. Hope you enjoyed this planking post amazing people 🤩.

 

Mountain biking!!!!!

Hello fellow humans, I’m going to talk about my favorite hobby, mountain biking.  Lots of people know how to bike and you might even have a bike, but have you ever been on a trail before? There’s lots of different types of biking; there’s bmx biking which is like doing tricks in a skate park. There’s road biking which is basically biking on a road and you have much thinner wheels. Then there’s mountain biking. Mountain biking is different. When you mountain bike you’re not on a road, you’re on a trail. Trails have obstacles , drops, turns, up hills and  more but mountain biking is actually really hard and you have to be ready to fall down or get hurt. Then there’s the biggest thing of all, you have to be ready to commit. When I first started I had a little bit of a hard time myself, but then I realized that you just have to commit. But one of the best things about mountain biking is the community. I’ve made some great friends in my experience and you can too. Listen in for more mountain biking info!!!!

 

Window or Mirror

Today in Language Arts class we learned what a window book is and what a mirror book is. A window book is a book where you’re looking at something or someone. A mirror book is a book where you’re looking at yourself or you see yourself in that book’s situation. One of my favorite books is the Wildlife Encyclopedia. This book is a great book that tells you about different animals and habitats from around the world. This book is informing people about other animals and places, it’s not telling you of something you might do, so that means it’s a window,because you’re looking at something else. This is a great window book to learn about animals’ lives and habitats.

My Backpack

In Language Arts class over the summer, we read a book called Finding Someplace.

In Finding Someplace, a girl named Reesie lives in New Orleans when a famous hurricane called Katrina comes rushing into shore turning into a category 5. Reesie is over with her very old neighbor, Mrs. Martine’s, when the hurricane comes through their area. Her brother Jordan comes over to the neighbor’s house with his girlfriend, suddenly the house starts flooding and they are forced to the attic and soon the flooding gets so high they are forced to go onto the roof. From there a man in a Jon boat finds them and brings them to a bridge where military men help them get to a safe place called the dome. In the dome, Reesie starts walking around. She brought a backpack with all of the family’s values and insurance papers for the house. When she is walking around, she has her backpack stolen.

In class, we got a drawing of a backpack and we drew all of the  things we thought we would need. This is what I put in my backpack: 7 packages of rations, a bag of clothes, a bow drill, a laptop, a blow up pillow, a big package of batteries, an Eno (hammock), a tarp (for the hammock), a SOS signal, a box with keys for my jet boat, jet ski, and houses, a phone, a file package with the paperwork for the house, a survival box, a package with dog food for my dog, a safe with stacks of money and a credit card, and hooked on the side of the drawing is a water bottle and a 14 inch Bowie knife. And that’s all of the stuff I think I would put in a backpack if I had to evacuate my house. They are things that would help me survive.
