Have you ever went to bed hungry at night? 70% of the world’s kids do. 70%! Hunger is not only in countries that haven’t established a proper government or system. Hunger is also in developed countries such as the United states.
Many people around the world are trying to help. For example, a teacher name Miss Sam used to teach at my school. When she left our school she went to start a restaurant in Arkansas named Pitza 4 2 (Pitza for two). They have pizzas served on pita bread and salads. When you purchase a meal, a starving kid in Africa gets one two.
This is just one of the many examples of people trying to help. I hope you want to help because I want to help too.
Week 7 of the student blogging challenge, says to have fun. I created a sand picture with a cool sand picture site called thisissand.com. For a history project that we did in school, I sculpted the Greek god Hera things that the Greek god Hermes carried and wore. I also drew a picture. It was a bear on rollerskates attacking a beehive. The sun had glasses and a mustache and the tree had an afro – the leaves.
I also used this site called isles of tune. I created my own village and it had music to go along with it. I had a very fun week 7!
In Week 6 of the student blogging challenge, it says to talk about work: What type of work do you want to do once you leave school, is work always enjoyable, ect.
On another post, I talked about my dream job. I said I wanted to be a professional tennis player, but more realistically, a lawyer. My dad was a lawyer and thats why I wanted to be one. My dad had to do a lot of work to become a lawyer. After he finished high school, he went Harvard. After he finished 4 years of college, he got in to Berkley Law School. When he was done with that, he had to be an intern before he could work at the firm he is at now.
A lot of jobs require a lot of work, like a lawyer. Other hard jobs to do are if you want to be a teacher or docter. Hard work early in life, will change your life forever. Down below, please vote on what you want to be when you are older and done with school.
Week 4 of the student blogging challenge says to “Make it Global”, to find an issue that relates to the whole world. Many people are suffering from different places and many people are going to help. Unfortunately there aren’t enough people helping.
All around the world, there are children dying from sicknesses, families dying from starvation, orphans not being cared for, and different people getting ill from polluted water.
Not only are all of these things horrible, but there is something that can be worse: Kony. Joseph Kony is a man that has started an army with little boys. They are killed if they don’t follow his orders. The girls will also be killed if they do not obey commands. Kony doesn’t have a purpose except to maintain his power.
All around the world, people are getting involved. The only way to stop Kony is to make him famous. The government is finally helping and they will stop if they think that we don’t care.
To learn more about Kony and start helping go to www.kony2012.com but please if you are a child get your parents permission first! People everywhere are trying to make a difference because this is something that they believe in, and I believe in it too! So, are you going to help?
Week 3 of the student blogging challenge is based on comments. Commenting is very important and a great way to get people to read your blogs! I think that commenting can be very thoughtful and helpful if you follow these steps:
Give specific details of what you like
Make sure you have correct punctuation and spelling
Leave a like to your blog so they have an easy way to access it and they will probably leave a comment on yours
Two people who left very helpful comments are my friends Collin and Colum. If you go to my recent comment bar, you can find the comments. Colum’s in on my week 2 post and Collin is on my Character Trait post.
The theme of a novel is often a connection between the protagonist’s thoughts in the beginning, and their actions in the end. In the Giver, Jonas learns that life is not just about the here and now. The Giver communicates that life is like a river, it flows different places passing on what you did, to the people after you. The past and present will always affect the future. My life is like a river too and I am from the actions of the past.
I am the smell of a new tennis ball, just opened at it hits the strings and flies into the air. I am my mom’s chocolate obsession and the delicious treasures she hides around the house. I am from Venice, the youngest child bathing in the dirty water from the people before her. I am from the white and pure world that swirls around me, the fluffy blanket that wraps around my chest in the cold. I am the confused little girl, not knowing what happened, but so curious why her parents are apart. I am taking with me my families laughter as he said; “The main thing is to keep the main thing, the main thing” and, “Never trouble trouble, until trouble troubles you!” I am from calm and relaxing to bright colors, sparkles, and wild. I am the fighter in the dangerous battles, fighting for liberty and freedom, giving it all he has for his country. I am continuing the past, experiencing the future. I am learning, I am loving, I am living.
