campfire - pavel freidmann

Campfire (click on the title to listen to me read it)

My ELA class is learning about the holocaust and the Terezin concentration camp. Terezin is just another concentration camp that was made during the holocaust except in Terezin they held “famous” people there and someone named _____ called the Red Cross to go look at Terezin and see if anything bad was happening there. While there they had to “clean up” the camp a little and during the time all the kids in Terezin made poems. So:

Here I sit on a rock
in front of the campfire.
One branch after another 
is snatched by the fire.
Into the darknessthe forest recedes.
Fire makes one reflect....
Terezin is all I think about.
But now embodies gather ‘ round me
like the falling leaves.

Fall is here. 
The leaves turn yellow on the trees,
the campfire dies out .
My thoughts are far from here,
somewhere far,
where integrity lives.

It lives in my friend.
Now I think of her.

Memeros gather ‘ round me
Like the falling leaves.

During this project I learned about this tragic thing that happened in life and how so much has changed since then.

book blog - rivals

My book Rivals is written by Tim Green the genre of Rivals is Fiction. Basically the book is about a boy named Josh who is a baseball and the baseball team has just won a game to go to Nationals or the championship. In the game leading to the championship game Josh there best player gets hurt. My favorite part of the book is where his mom is saying he cannot play in the championship game but his dad is trying to convince her to let him play. Read Rivals to find out if they win the championship game and if Josh plays in it.

sol # 8 ; championship - march 27

On Saturday march 24 my basketball team won the championship. We had gone undeafeated all season but last time we played this team we only won my one shot two points. My coach had told me since there was no playoffs it was the team with the best record who won the championship, so on Saturday if this team beat us by more than two points they would have won the championship. It was an extremely close game the entire game except at like the last minute my treat went up by a few shows with like 30 seconds left the score was 23 to 26. Which means all they needed was a three pointer to win. It was our ball we scored making it 23 to 28, there was 16 seconds left, then the buzzer went off, we had won!!!

sol # 6 ; new book - march 15

In a lot of libraries lately I have been seeing football books by the same author Tim Green and they looked like good books I read the back seemed pretty good, I saw Tim Greens books that were about basketball and a lot about football and none about baseball, so realizing I couldn’t find one I went to the library going to tryout one of the football books or basketball which ever seemed better to me. So the first one I took out of the shelf was a football one I picked up the one next to it expecting to be about basketball or football but it was about baseball without even looking at the back I went to check it out. I was happy that I finally found a baseball one. On the back of this one there’s another one I’m excited to read next.

sol # 5 ; volleyball - march 13

Yesterday my volleyball team went to playoffs at unity. The out of bounds lines were light yellow lines, which was hard to see. The other team was serving and the ball was coming, the girl in front of me was like not going for the ball at all just standing there.  I was thinking to myself  “What are you doing?” I slide on my knees and hit it but we didn’t end up getting it over, then I realized why nobody was going for it, because it was out. My leg was hurting like right under my knee because my knee pads had slide up and I didn’t even look at it but then when my coach called a timeout I looked at it and there was this big scrape.
