This is my To Kill a Mockingbird project. It is about morality and how it fits in with the book. In the book, many people make good choices, and many people don’t make good choices. This is why morality is important in the book To Kill a Mockingbird. I think I did very well with how I laid out my backboard. It is organized, and it has great color for my theme. I think I needed to improve my embedded quotes and my sentence structure. I f I could redo the project, I would have paid more attention to the instructions, because if I read them more, I would have done way better on the project.
In this section you will be able to see some of my assignments that we did in our class. I will post anything I do on my computer. So, I hope you read it, and post comments.
I walk up to the green and striped fairway.
I climb into the green and tan golf cart.
I hope this time I will have a good day.
I will have a good day if I play smart.
I have to get the distance for the club.
When I hit the ball straight onto the green
After I wash the clubs In a black tub.
I’ll shoot a seventy when I’m fifteen.
Every day I will wash all the balls.
When the ball goes left I will call “Fore”
When the ball hits them they a yell and fall
After that is done they will start a war.
Sometimes this golf course has fairway and rough.
After it’s over I will think that’s tough.
I think I did very well on my imagination and on the story itself. The reason we wrote this story is because we just go done with a book and Mrs. Gates decided to make us write a story. I think the most difficult part was coming up with the ending, and the easiest part was coming up with the beginning. This report helped me learn how to write a story, and how do brainstorm better. If I could improve this report I would have added a little more detail in the last part of the story.
This is my Glogster. In class we wrote an ode, and I did it to my snowboard. I wrote four small paragraphs talking about my ode and why I wrote it. Please post comments.
The reason that we wrote these goals for the term is to keep ourselves motivated for getting good grades, and writing down what we could do better at in the class.
1: Start getting A's on report cards.
2: Be more organized.
3:Be more depth in writing.
4: Pay attention to capitalization.
1: I think this story relates to middle school because of the types of kids and their behaviors of which they handle things. There are always certain kids that are followers and leaders.
Jack and Ralph were fighting for leader of the group, eventually Ralph saw that it was not power that was important as much as it was about working together. Just like when the choose who was leader of the group, “I’m Chief then” said Ralph, “The freckles on Jacks face disappeared.”[pg. 23] Piggy was the guy that did not believe that power solved everything, that is where Ralph got that idea. The litluns in the book were the followers.
In middle school it is very similar; the two most popular kids are fight to be the leader of the school, they bully kids to show their power and to scare of other potential leaders. All the kids that look up to those kids and try to be friends with them are the followers of middle school.
In middle school and in Lord of the Flies by William Golding they are very similar.
2: I think that in the book some of the kids were a savage and some of the kids are civilized, like Piggy. In the book Jack and Ralph started out on being a savage, but as time went on Ralph learned that he had to be civilized in order to stay alive on this island. What they should have done is right away is when they crashed the plane they should have stopped swimming and playing and a made a shelter. They should have listened to Piggy right away; he was the only civilized person on the whole island. Once they relized the situation they felt like killing and violence was the appropriate thing, they should have worked together. That is the reason that Piggy and Simon are dead.
The reason we did the In came assignment was to try and understand Charles Dickens writing style better. The easiest part was coming up with the topic of what I would do it on. Th hardest part was actually writing it.
In came pitcher with his baseball glove and hat, and walked on to the mound, and made a big laugh out of it, and once everyone was laughing he threw 300 pitches through two innings. In came the coach, one mad face. In came the one new pitcher who was happier then ever, smile bigger than ever. In came all the groundskeepers to fix up the infield before he threw his first pitch in the big leagues. In came the batter, with his big bat, the number four batter. In came the on-deck batter, with his best friends’ cleats, from his dad. In came his dad from the stands, who was suspected of breaking the law; trying to hide behind a hot dog stand until the cops came and took him downtown, but was proved that he was only trying to give his son a good luck hug. In the team came, one after another, some fast, some slow, some happily, some sadly, some running, some crying; in they all came, anyhow and every how.
Eighth grade is a golf course because some days you have a good swing and some days you don’t. Sometimes you hit the ball well, but it goes to the wrong place, and sometimes it goes to the right place. Sand traps are the toughest part of the game, but when you know how to play them, you can get a better score. The tee box should make you feel like it’s a new day; you have to forget about the last day, good or bad. When you get the ball in the cup, it’s like getting a test back. It can be embracing or exciting. A golf course is a lot like 8th grade.
My Burton snowboard
White, blue, and black,
Covered with stickers,
He slides down the mountain
Faster than fast,
Faster than a lightning strike
Only stopped by
The end of the run
He shoots down
He races other boards
To show that he’s better.
When he wins you can tell
He knows that he is
one of the best
On the mountain.
The other boards know
When to get out of the way.
When he shows up
At the terrain park
At double blacks
At the hotel
At the cafeteria
In the powder
At the snow school
The ski lift
The ticket counter
At the moguls
The tree runs
And on the MOUNTAIN,
They know they should
Let him go first,
He is the King.
