This week we learned about the 30's and50's. We compared both eras on a small sheet of paper. We then shared what we all wrote down. We also got see how the Russians and the Americans responded to the launch of sputnik everyone was astonished by the launch, both sides had their good and bad opinions on the launch. We also finished October sky, and we finished our character charts. Other than that
This week wasn't that special for TJ, he didn't learn much in his english class they've just went over the book they've reading and wrote on their character charts. For one of the classes creative writing blogs they wrote about a picture taken of a man pretending to fish at the grand canyon. In the picture there also seemed to be a figure behind him. TJ wrote a story about the picture and he thought he did a great job writing it so he shared it with mister Schoenborn. Another creative writing assignment the class had was about break ups during the period of a year. Mister Schoenborn showed the class a graph of where the most break ups occur and it seemed people broke up the most right before spring break stated and before winter break started. TJ wrote about if you keep your partner happy during the major break up times you will be set through the rest of the year if you don't mess up the relationship.
This week seemed to go by pretty quickly, we read on Monday and watch the whole movie of mice and men on Tuesday, Wednesday was the worst of all the days put together we took the PSAT. we didn't go to any of our classes it was just testing almost all day. the day never seemed to end. Thursday went by pretty fast and we went over how the movie was. We also compared how the characters relationships were. In all Tj learned how even friends and let you down.
