For the past couple of weeks, my Language Arts class has been reading wisdom tales from around the world. One week ago, we were told to pick a group of people and recreate one of the tales. My group decided to do The Talkative Turtle. I have attached the video if you want to watch it. It is a stop motion video. It took us about two days to complete. We presented it to our class the following week. A lot of people liked it. I think this was a good project for are class to do and I look forward to doing another project in the future.
USAFBL stands for Unites States of America Fingerboard League. I am writing this before the event. Some things I know about them is that the USAFBL does a summer thing. They go all over the USA having events. I will be there on the Nov 12, 2022. The event will last from 12-6 and there will be a tournament. The tournament will be a game of S.K.A.T.E. If you don’t know what that is, it basically P.I.G for skateboarding.
This is me writing after the event. I got 12th place in my age group and made a lot of new friends. This was my first time ever competing in a fingerboard event and I think I did good. I look forward to the next time I do one.
The trip to Camp Hanes was exquisite. My mom made me wake up at 6:30 to make sure I had everything I needed. We got on the bus at 8:15 and made it to camp around 10:30, unloaded are bags into the GYM then had a discussion about rules. After the discussion we took are bags and went to are cabins. Thankfully I was with some friends.
My favorite activity was the hike, it was about 3 miles there and back, and the view was amazing! I had a lot of fun on the hike. I talked with Harrison most of the time. When we got to the top we could see the whole camp. It was so cool. Then we had to go back to camp.
Camp fire was cool too. It was really fun talking to friends and making s’mores. I tried to get my marshmallow golden, but it caught on fire. It was still really good though. We did some games and follow the leader stuff. When it was over it was pitch black, and I couldn’t see anything. Holland and I raced back to the cabin to get first showers.
Sadly, the trip was only two days and 1 night. So we had to leave the next day. It was really cool getting to go on a overnight trip with my school. The day we left, we just chilled in the GYM and did games. The Cabins were nice, they had two showers! Which was cool, liked it a lot. I might even go back for a real summer camp.
This summer we had to read the book Finding Someplace. It is about a girl named Reesie who is in her house when Hurricane Katrina hit. She has to pack her backpack full of all her things she wants to take with her, not knowing when she would be back.
I would bring my Life Straw and some Cliff Bars, if I got thirsty or hungry. I would bring extra clothes just in case I get called or I need to change to something clean. I would bring my wallet in case I need to pay for more food or buy some water. I would bring my fingerboard for entertainment. A flashlight would make it easy to see in the dark, and may skateboard will be a good way of transportation. Some Crocs if I need to walk through some water.
My dog because I love him and to keep me company. My phone in case I need to stay in touch with my mom or my dad. A charger to charge my phone. Also, some paper for fun. Yes, they are all worth bringing. I made a science experiment that going down a hill with a skateboard is faster then walking down it. It is worth bringing my dog because I love my dog and he is very handsome. I would also use my money to buy dog food. A fingerboard because I easily get bored and I can’t always use my phone.
