Goodbye East

Dear East Elementary,
I am very sad to leave this school even though I have been here almost all my life which is 6 years I will be missing my friends and family that I have here. I have been here for 6 years and have very good memories of some of the stuff that we have done here. I will be missing all the teachers that have been there for me in the good stuff and the bad stuff. I will be missing them who served for me and did fun stuff with us. Here are some teachers I will be missing and why. First of I will be missing Ms. Snyder. I will miss her because she has done all this stuff for us. She has took us to a lot of places. I remember when she took us to Dairy Queen because she was buying stuff for my cousin Alex which is in 7th grade. I still remember that moment because she was buying his stuff for continuation which is today. I also want mention Ms. Lloyd because she has always been nice to me. When I was in her grade I felt like she was a part of my other family. I felt that way because she always stopped people from being mean to me. I Still remember all these fun memories because we used to play games and stuff like that. I also remember when it was time for T-cap because she would always give us these big hugs and made me feel confident and that's how I made it through 3rd grade. Next, I want to mention Ms. Crowley because she would always be nice to us and would always read books to us. The funnest memory was when we finished both the books Summer Of The Monkeys and Where The Red Fern Grows because at the end of the school year we watched both of the movies and she let us bring whatever we wanted to eat. When the movies were over she gave us this candy bag. Lastly, I would like to mention Ms. Smith because she was also like family to me even though she retired she would come to field trips with us. When we went on a field trip this year to Rocky Mountain National Park she came with us. I still remember the moment when you took away my phone and didn't give it back. That is who I would like to thank that were my teachers and that were like my family. I would like to say good bye to all East for doing what they did for us and being there when we needed you in the good and bad ways. I will miss you East Elementary.

Respiratory System

What Function Do the Lungs Have?

The lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system. They are the sites of gas exchange. Air passages in the lungs branch into smaller and smaller tubes. They end up at tiny air sacs. The air sacs provide a lot of surface area for gas exchange. Tiny blood vessels take in oxygen from the air sacs. This is how oxygen in the lungs enters the bloodstream. Then the blood carries oxygen to all parts of the body. Carbon dioxide also moves from the blood to the air sacs. It leaves the body when you breathe out.

How Does the Respiratory System Help the Body?

Each of your body's cells needs oxygen to get energy. Oxygen is used in the reaction that breaks down sugar. Each cell needs to perform this reaction to get energy. Carbon dioxide and water are the waste products of that reaction. Your body also needs to get rid of carbon dioxide gas. The job of your respiratory system is to exchange gases between your body and the atmosphere.

How Does Air Travel Through the Respiratory System?

Air enters the body through the nose and mouth. The air travels through the trachea  a tube in your neck and chest. The trachea divides into two tubes called bronchi. The bronchi continue to divide into smaller and smaller tubes that end in the air sacs of the lungs. The diaphragm muscle sits under the lungs. When it expands the lungs expand and take in air. When it contracts the lungs contract and air is forced out.

Homework Document



This is the name of our article that we just finished called Homework: Too Little or Too Much? It Depends

Old days are better with less homework but more studying. 
Back in 1986, the percentage of students who spent at least six hours a week on schoolwork was larger: 49.5 percent. I think that back in 1986 kids spent more time doing homework because they were mean in the old days and if they didn't study or do there homework correctly they would make them clean the outhouse or get wacked on there hand with a ruler which really hurts and makes real bad bruises.
People don’t like studying because of network stuff. 
The 2012 college freshmen survey questioned students about their last year of high school. Students were asked to list how much time they had spent per week on various activities. Nearly two-thirds said they had spent six or more hours a week socializing with friends. But only 38.4 percent spent that same amount of time on studying or homework during their last year in high school. And homework not only came in behind socializing. It also trailed exercise or sports and working for pay. I think people don't study because they have Xbox, Ps3 and all the technology that distracts them to not doing there work.
I wish I was still in preschool.
In all three age groups questioned, more than a fifth had no homework at all: That was true of 22 percent of 9-year-olds, 21 percent of 13-year-olds, and 27 percent of 17-year-olds. I think that kids in preschool have homework but most of it is for parents to sign and stuff so most of the time it isn't really homework for them but for the parents to do for the teachers. I also think that most of the stuff that they do in preschool is fun and they dont even learn anything except talk in english the rest of the stuff the kids do is play around in class all day and not get in trouble except if you hit somebody. I know all this stuff because my little sister is in preschool.

Edgar Libraries Document



Big Ideas

Libraries are changing.
“You may not know it, but libraries have become community tech centers.”
I wish our school library was a “community tech centers”.w
Digital is hard.
Some people walk in with new e-readers, still in the box. They don't know how to turn them on. Others ask how to share photos and videos online.
Some of the times digital is hard because you don’t know how to use a ipod or ipad.
More money more stuff.
Shhhhhhh. You may not know it, but libraries have become community tech centers. They don't just offer computers with free Internet. They have 3-D printers, e-readers and social media. Growing catalogs of e-books let people connect to libraries from home.
3-D printers they must have a lot of money in the library. I think this because a long time ago people didn’t have all this stuff for the kids.

Bugs Who Love bugs

Dear Readers,
Today I am going to tell you what I did in my key time group for our article Bugs Who Love
Bugs which was our homework last night. First I will tell you the main points. The first one is Stink Bugs ruining crops or fruit. The next on is Stink Bugs come to America. The last one is scientist test samples. Those are my Main points.
Next, I am going to give details that support the main point. First, Stink Bugs get into the fruit and suck all of the sugar out. The next one is Stink Bugs came to America in the late 1990's. Finally, people sprayed something that got rid of Stink Bugs to help the fruit but also got rid of other bugs that help the fruit.
Finally, I am going to tell you My thinking about the main points. First of all, do Stink Bugs make more damage then worms in the fruit? Next of all, probably the Stink Bugs came from the people in farms and every were else there were no more fruit. At last, I think that the spray that they put could help fruits but also ruin them because it will get rid of bugs that help the plant or fruit so it just got rid of all the bugs near it.
