Before I came into his class I wasn’t sure what we were going to do. When I first walked into Mr. Block’s class I wasn’t a good writer and I didn’t like history class but Mr. Block made his projects different and creative. Every project was unique in its on way and that’s what I liked about it. We had the freedom to write our thoughts in our papers.
“I am me and that’s who I want to be
I am fifteen cool, fun and free
I see and hear just like you
But very different I am to you”
About a month ago Mr. Block told us to make poetry wiki of all different poems we are going to write in class during our poetry unit. One of poems I was most proud of was my riff poem.
“The feeling you get when you realized you can run all those
Every step we take were getting closer
Is that want we want?”
In history we were learning about sweatshops and revolutions and something I heard a lot when were talking about these topics is “ Once something negative happens then more negative things happen.” When I think about this subject I just think that hope will get you through your challenges. People are making our clothes for lower then minimum wage. They will punish you if you do not do your work correct and all you want is the end. Struggles help you work harder to achieve your goals.
A Series of Unfortunate EventI recommend this book because the stories are engaging and there are enough books that you can stay occupied that hole summer.
Purpose: Kids should be able to demonstrate why leaves change colors in the fall

plastic spoon, clock
1)Collect leaves(different leaves from different trees)

3)Cover the jars but not to tight and place jars into shallow pan with 1 inch of hot water
4)Keep jars in pan for 1/2 hour
5)Remove jars and uncover while placing thin strips of coffee paper in, so it's touching the alcohol
6)The colors should travel up the paper and you can see the colors
7)Remove the paper let it dry and hang it where you want.
My process for this project went very smoothly. I didn't really plan a plot or anything, I just wrote and wrote and wrote. I did not face any challenges, I actually enjoyed doing this project and writing this story.
