One of my favorite paragraphs from the book MockingJay last of the Hunger Games series is A Hovercraft marked with the Capitol’s seal materializes directly over the barricaded children. Scores of silver parachutes rain down on them. Even in chaos, the children know what silver parachutes contain. Food. Medicine. Gifts. They eagerly scoop them up, frozen fingers struggling with the strings. The hovercraft vanishes, five seconds pass, and then about twenty parachutes simultaneously explode. This is one of my favorite paragraphs in MockingJay because It makes you wonder why would the capital want to drop them on the children and not the adults and it also makes you wonder who in the capital dropped the bombs.

Being a global citizen means being responsible,respectful and taking time to make the world a better place. To begin, Being a Global Citizen Means being Responsible. Don’t throw trash on the ground because small piece of trash you throw on the ground adds up. Pick up things of the ground even if they aren’t yours because it doesn’t matter whose it is you should still pick it up. Turn off water after you use it because water is a valuable thing and you don’t want to waste it. Next, Being a Global Citizen means Respecting the Environment Around you. Pick up trash because animals can die from trying to eat it but it gets stuck in their throats instead. Treat the world like you would want to be treated . Treat the world nicely because it’s the only place there is to live. Finally, Being a Global Citizen means Taking Time to make the World a Better Place. Help others because you could make somebody’s day. Plant seeds to grow into trees because trees and plants because trees bring oxygen to the world.
Transitioning has always been a little hard for our class because almost everybody always talks. But we can make are transitioning better! There’s a couple ideas I have that might make transitioning better. First like Ms. Gould said maybe I could find a catchy line to make the class listen. But what? If you get a line or sentence that might get peoples attention feel free to tell me! My second thing is if people don’t talk because when you talk the room gets noisy and people get headaches. Also if you talk while transitioning you move slower and that wastes time. So if everybody could be quiet during a transition it would make it a lot easier and better. If you get any ideas please tell me! Where are you from?
I’ve been so excited to get to see what long term sub we are going to have and if she/he is a good fit for our classroom! When we finally got Mrs. Gould I knew she was going to be a perfect sub. I’m 10 almost turning eleven and I’m a fifth grader at West Middleton Elementary School. My favorite subject is social studies just because how Mrs. Ripp taught it and I really hope Mrs. Gould teaches it in a similar way. One project for example was we did a zombie apocalypse! I play lacrosse but my favorite sport to watch on TV is football. My favorite team is the packers! Enough about me, I would love to learn more about you Mrs. Gould! So far your a great sub!
I live by many rules but here are some of the rules that are most important to me. The first rule at the top of my list is “Being helpful”. Being helpful is very important because it will get you a lot further in life. Such as maybe it could make peoples day or sometimes it could even save peoples lives and my second most important rule I live by is “Being safe”. Being safe is a very important rule of mine because being safe is always the best way to go! One more rule of mine is “Learning”. Learning is a big thing in life especially in your early ages before college. If you pay attention and try your best in your early ages college will go by much easier than with no learning at all. What rules in your life do you live by? Comment back! Where are you from?
