Breadwinner

Hello, I will be talking about a book called The

    Breadwinner

. It is a sad book because the character home country got taken over by the Taliban. The Taliban took over by bombing places. The character’a family was forced to live in hope of there father earning enough money so they can live. The Taliban were very strict. They said no music, no TV, and no communication. There was a lot of killing. Also the character’h father got taken away. The main character had to work for their family has a boy when she was a girl. He was taken by men back to their house at the end. There is also more books about this. I want to read on. There is just one thing left and that is never forget “how beautiful one flower is.”

Math Reflection, AGAIN

I am proud of my score on the math test because I only got one wrong out of 2 whole pages. I want to hug someone right now. I doubled checked and triple checked. I was good at adding and subtracting fractions. I was also good at finding per nets for the fractions. I understood how to convert decimals, percentage, and fractions. I thought it was easy finding common denominators for fractions. For example,  the lowest common denomintor 3/4 and 6/8 is 8.

What I wasn’t good at was multipliying mixed fractions. I looked up how to do it, and I practiced it. It was pretty easy. First, you change the mixed fraction or fractions into improper fractions. Second, you multiply them. For example, 2 4/5 x 5 6/7 = 574/35.

Lantau Island

For two days, the whole 5th grade went on a camping trip. I woke up at 5:50 for getting ready :). I wasn’t really excited because I had already been to another camp that was better. I stilled liked it though. We had to get past immigration. I did not like immigration. It took forever. I pressed poor service because they didn’t smile at me. The TV commercial promised a smile. When we got to camp, we had to drop off one of the two of our bags. We stayed at the YWCA. I liked the YWCA. It looked nice. Then, we got on to a bus. My friends and I sat at the back of the bus. We made up a song called the hat bros. We said, ‘We’re the hat bros, we’re the hat bros, we’re the hat bros, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. When we got to our destination, we met our guide, Jasmine. We had to pick up a dirty beach. I didn’t lie picking up disgusting things. After we finished, we walked up a mountain with dogs. our group got the best dog, Spicy. We walked up the mountain with Spicy. Spicy was the most cooperative. When we finally got up the mountain, we had to have a talk about the environment. Then, we had to do activities. When we were done, we had to hike up a mountain. All of us were really tired at the end. We also got stopped by a water buffalo. When we finally got back, we were all tired. We got into our cabins and we were active again. We were talking to everyone in the cabin. However, we heard a boy named Devon call our names. We popped outside and we found out how to communicate. We communicated with the girls. We watched a movie and then went to sleep.

One of our roommates woke up at 4:30 Am. Another one woke up at 5:30. The first boy said, YOU’RE AWAKE TOO and woke the whole cabin. We were all confused and tired. We started communicating at 6:30 because a boy named Brook woke all the other boys up. WE also communicated with the girls. We played a game where we used a ball. We finally got caught and went back into our rooms. We ate breakfast. I made a egg sandwich. We got on a bus and went to our destination. We walked around buffaloes and did activities. We also swam in the beach. I loved the beach because we had boys versus girls. The boys won because we had the numbers and the water guns. We did a little more activities and then we finally got on the bus and went to our final destination, HOME.

Here is a video to see a slideshow about our camps.
