This week on Thursday September 8th I had my first band lesson and I had a blast! I play the clarinet and it is really fun. We tried out a couple weeks earlier for what insterments we might play and I think I did great on almost all of them and I chose the clarinet. The first thing we did was learn to put it together (It was really hard - it had lots of parts) and then we got to play sounds. I was really fun. I am going to have a blast this year in band!
Today I read an Artical called "Sleepy Teens get a better wake -up call" by Los Angeles times, adapted by Newsela
The artical I read was "Sleepy teens get a later wake-up call" from Newsela. Click here to see the link.
The artical was about how some student wern't getting enough sleep and how that effects there school day and what doctors and other people did about it. They think that some schools should start later and I agreed because most of the times I am really tired when I get up and sometimes. I just don't want to get up!

"Harbin's Ice and Snow Festival is Spectacular" By: Dogo news explained that it is great place to visit during the cold winter months. There is not a lot of tourist attractions open during the winter and the Ice and Snow Festival is. They make sculptures out of ice and snow and they look really cool. It seems really interesting and fun and has things that everyone likes. And I hope I can visit it someday!
This week we are working on finding text evidence. Mr. Glade asked us this question and this is my response =
Why do people visit the Harbin Ice Festival?
One reason people like to visit the Harbin Ice Festival is because it has things for everyone to like. In paragraphs 4-7 it explains different things that everyone enjoys, excitement, fairytale experience, fun, relaxing and all the sculptures.
We have been doing Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then, (SWBST) summaries and this is one of them.
This book is called Those Shoes By: Maribeth Boelts.
There are a lot of good things about 5th grade so far, but only one of them is my favorite.... Chrome Books! One of my favorite part about chrome books are that you get to take them home. Another reason I think chrome books are one of the best things of 5th grade so far is that you get to play whatever you want (if Mr.Glade says we can). Lastly, it helps you learn more and be able to do things on computers you didn't know how to do. Thats why I think that chrome books are the best thing in 5th grade so far.
