Happy Birthday to Me
Posted on October 10, 2014 at 10:40 am by and

My birthday is next month, but this year I don’t want any gifts. I am going to raise $1000 for the Dircio Rivera family and maybe some others too in Mexico. I am raising money for them because they don’t have that much money to make a home, so the money I raise will help them to have a house.

Make Your Birthday Really Matter from 1MISSION on Vimeo.

I will need your help. You can help by donating or letting others know about it.

Having Mrs. Fraher is so fun because her room looks fun, she does cool things, and she is nice!  ♥

Look for the smarty pants.  She gave me a note and a nice welcome dvd.

Digital Citizenship

Be safe on the Internet by not giving away personal information.

Are you safe with your personal information?

Is there any other personal information you should keep safe?

Be respectful on the Internet because if you are not it might hurt someone’s feelings and they might think you are a cyber bully.

Have you ever hurt anyone’s feelings?

Do you think about empathy?

About my state
Posted on March 15, 2014 at 5:53 pm by and

I live in Arizona, in the USA. I’m going to tell you about my state seal.

em1

If you look in the picture you can see miner, fields, the orchards, on the right side there is cattle, and behind the mountains there’s a sun rising. These are all the five Cs in our state seal.

If you are wondering what the miner means, it means he mines for metal. The metal is copper. The fields give us cotton, and cotton makes clothes. The orchards grow fruit. The fruit makes us grow and be healthy. On the right side there is cows, and the cows is the cattle, which gives us milk and meat. The sun rising behind the hills gives us sunlight.

Arizona State Seal from Wikipedia and Public Domain

Different state seals looks very different than others. For example, the California one looks different than the Arizona one because it has different features. Arizona has five Cs.

Hour of Code
Posted on December 10, 2013 at 8:06 pm by and

Did you know that it is Code Week? I am doing more than an hour of code because it’s just fun and it’s creative and it’s educational. It’s learning. I like it!

First you start with Angry Birds, and when you get to level 13 or 14 it changes to Plants v Zombies. Then when you complete it you go to level two. Each level has 20 rounds of Blockly puzzles.

blockly hour of code level 1 Congrats

Tip: Sometimes I got frustrated because it was my first time because I said turn right, but it turned left. I didn’t understand that my right was different from the Angry Bird’s right. But what I did was get my stuffed animal and my mommy asked, which one is my right eye, then she asked which one is my animal’s right eye, so then I could see it had to turn left (which was my right).

To brush my teeth, I made my mommy talk to me in code so I got there. It’s really true! It was fun!

 What are you doing for Hour of Code?

If you are doing Hour of Code, do you like it?

Have you played with Blockly and Hour of Code yet? 

Do you think it is learning and fun?

Paper Doll Creation
Posted on December 3, 2013 at 6:29 pm by and

These are my girl dolls. One is French, two of them are sisters (the yellow skin ones), and the one who has a lady bug dress is named Lizzy. The French one can also speak English. It’s true. And the lady bug one can talk English and Spanish, it’s true, really true. And the yellow skin ones just talk English. Their friends are the other two. They go all around the (paper) globe.

I like that I made them just out of paper and tape and pencil. I love making them because it uses my creative time at home. My story is made up too, and that’s part of the fun.

Have you made paper dolls? Why? How?

Do you like to create things?

Most Important Inventions

My grandpa’s most important invention during his lifetime is the computer and the smart phone.

My other grandpa wrote his answer in an email to my mom, “The most significant invention created in my lifetime was the heart-lung machine, which enabled surgeons to perform open-heart surgery, and without which I would have probably died 15 or more years ago. So, you see, it’s the most important invention TO ME. You might explain that the heart-lung machine circulates the blood throughout your body during surgery, while the surgeons perform the heart operation. You will recall that I had my procedure June 10, 1992.”

What do you think is the most important invention that has happened during your life?

Helping the Homeless
Posted on October 17, 2013 at 8:50 pm by and

I am sad for other people that are homeless. It’s because they have to live out in the rain and they have to stay really wet and they have almost nothing. But, there’s mostly people in there that doesn’t have homes in New York City. It’s really sad for them. Click on play below (or click here) to hear me share.

Helping the Homeless Here are some ways we help homeless people and people who don’t have a lot of things:

brainstorm

1. Have a canned food drive.

2. Send gifts to kids through Operation Christmas Child so they get things for Christmas.

3. Help 1Mission by building house or raising money.
