What You See Out My Classroom Window

When you look out my classroom window, you might see a couple of different things. Our school is on a farm. You might see corn, soybeans, trees, grass, a combine, a tractor, or other country things.

The first thing I am going to talk about is the corn or soybeans. There is a large field outside the school. My dad actually farms it. This year, there was corn on one side and beans on the other. Next year, there will be beans where the corn was and corn where the beans were. During the winter though, you might think there are no crops. Well you thought wrong. During the winter, My dad plant a cover crop that keeps the ground fertile and enduring nutrients.

The second thing I am going to mention is the trees and grass. In some areas, you can see small forests or a big plot of grass. Although there are plots of grass, there are more fields than grass plots. I like going to schools at McDowell Middle School.

My story on the Pict in activity 12

ready to go

 

What do I think this is?? I think this takes place in an airport. You can see the carpet and the chair. Those aspects resemble an airport. The stuffed animal and the bag also resemble the airport. They could be things you take with you somewhere else.

Maybe this person is going back home from a trip. I think this because maybe the animal was in the bag when they got on the airplane, but then it never got back into the bag when they got off.

They may be going on a trip or getting on an airplane, because the water bottle is full. I also think these belongings belong to a child. I think so because of the stuffed animal and the bag is full. There are many possibilities of this picture.

Picture and Video tips

When you draw a picture in real life, you can only do one thing with it like sell it, give it to a friend, or keep it for yourself. When you write stories, draw pictures, take photographs, record music, or capture video online, you can do all three. When you do it online, there are some setbacks. People can change it or edit it. Luckily, there are some things you can do to keep it safe.

There are laws that can grant you full copy right. Unless you say otherwise, no one can change it. It is called a Creative Commons license. It states the freedoms and limitations that apply to your work. It is am explanation of what someone can and cannot do with it. It has been translated to many languages so the entire globe can understand what you have granted them to do.

It offers a couple different licenses so you can choose what other people can do with it. These would include: Attribution means others can use your work, but they have to give you credit. There is also another one and it means no one can make money off your work without permission. A third one means no one will be allowed to make changes to your work without asking. Share Like it ensures that the terms you choose for your original creations are preserved. It is up to you to choose what you do and how you share.

My State

Image

Three places I would recommend in Columbus, Ohio, would include the Columbus Zoo, Cosi, and the Spaghetti Warehouse.

The Columbus Zoo is awesome in my opinion. They just opened a new section called Africa. There are giraffes in Africa. There are zebras, wildebeestes, vervet monkeys, africian lions, ostrichs, cheetas, andama gazelles. I have not been  there since they opened Africa, but I would like to go.

I also enjoy going to Cosi. Cosi stands for Center of science and industry. Cosi is really neat because there are a lot of different exibits. They are not always the same, but there are some neat ones. Once one moves out, a new one comes in.

Last but not least there is the Spaghetti Warehouse. It is located basically across from Cosi. Whenever my family goes to Cosi, we also go to the Spagheitti Warehouse. I think it is really neat.

Where would I live?

Rules by Cynthia Lord

 

Where would I live if I could live anywhere in the universe, word of books, or world of movies? I would live in the world of books. The book I would live in would be the book called Rules by Cynthia Lord. Rules is her first novel.

Rules is about a 12 year old girl who wants a normal life. She has an autistic brother and the world revolves around him. She has come up with some rules to keep him in order. Some of them include:

1. NO toys in the fish tank.

2. If the bathroom door is closed, knock.

3. Say thank you when  someone gives you a present, even if you don’t like it.

4. Don’t stand in front of the t.v., especially if someone is watching it.

5. A boy takes off his shirt to swim, not his shorts.

5. Some people think they know who you are, when really they don’t.

These rules make the book important. They helped her brother with the rules of life.

Another reason I liked the book had to do with Jason. Jason needed help with a lot of things. He had a communication book. It was filled with words and if he was in a conversation, he would talk by touching the words he wants to speak.

The character I would want to be would be Catherine. She is the one who goes on the adventures with Jason and her brother has autism. The book I would want to live in would be rules.

Country vs. City

Country vs. City which would you choose? I would choose the country. Right now I live in the country and I really like the openness around us. An over view of my house can be seen on Google Earth. I also really like the fact that Logan Elm School is my neighbor. We don’t have a very long drive to school.

My dad is a farmer and farms the field around us. He runs the combine and I really like riding in there with him. He farms around 30,000 acers. He farms corn and beans. Before I was born he farmed wheat. He farms in Pickaway County in Circleville, Ohio.

Another reason I like the Country is that you can have we lots of yard around you. We have a somewhat big backyard, and I like playing out there. We have a trampoline, rope, and a swing set. My favorite is the rope. we have a 3 ft. rock and a 12 ft. ood contraption. You can swing off of either on the rope.

My third reason I like the country is that we can have farm animals. Right now, we have 22 chickens, 1 dog, and 1 cat. I also like to ride horses, but we don’t have enough land. They are also very expensive. I like living in the country with the farming, backyard, and animals.

My Country’s Capital

I live in the U.S.A. The capital of the U.S.A. is Washington D.C. Washington D.C. is in the district of Columbia. The three places I would recommend are the Pentagon, White House, and the Washington Monument.

The three places I would recommend would start with the pentagon. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. It is located in Arlington County, Virginia. The pentagon is a  symbol of the U.S. military. The pentagon is also referred to the Department of defense. You can tour the Pentagon and here is a website you can look at if you want to tour it.https://pentagontours.osd.mil/

The second place I would recommend would be the White House. The White house is where the president lives. Even our first president, George Washington, lived the the same area in a different white house. I know you cannot tour it , but you can get to places in Washington D.C. where you can see it.

The third place would be the Washington Monument. The Washington Monument in the national Mall in Washing d.c. to commemorate George Washington (the first U.S.A. president and he led our troops in the the Continental Army.

The first picture below is the Washington Monument, the second is the White house and the third is the pentagon.
