Will Smith- Switch

Poetry For eng8

From internet:

Hey, Mom and Dad! I got my grades!

And you'll be thrilled to hear
the marks on our report cards
are changed around this year.

A bunch of kids were telling me
this morning on the bus,
that they had heard some teachers say
that Fs are "fabulous."

And Ds are proudly given out
for work that's "dynamite."
They're used to honor kids like me,
whose brains are really bright.

So C of course is super "cool"-
I've got a few of those.
I wish they could be Ds and Fs,
but that's the way it goes.

I'm pleased to see my teacher
didn't give an A or B.
I've worked too hard for one of those.
Gosh, aren't you proud of me?

I see you don't believe me.
You think that I am lying?
At least you will agree
that I should get an A for trying!

Myth of blackbeard

He knew North Carolina well, calling Ocracoke Island his home.

This was the early years of the 1700's. America's east coast was dotted with small villages and seaports, and almost all travel and trade was done by ship. Piracy was rampant and passengers and sailors alike lived in constant fear of being attacked, robbed, kidnapped or killed by pirates.

My spring Break

On my spring break Sydney and I went to Grande Praire. We went to go visit her dad and it was fun. I also watched Fat Albert, and Are we there yet. In grande Praire we went to the movies and we went shopping.... like just about everday. We got a couple shirts and I got a new pair of shorts. Sydney wanted to rent Spongebob the Movie so we watched that and the Incredibles.

Class Review

Leningen didn't want to leave because he took care of the plantation and got through all the hard times. I think it was an unuasul story. The ants tried to cross the water over the dead bodies of the other ants. He wanted to make sure the ants where gone.

To Build A Fire

The man probably had the dog with him for protection, instead of a partner. The dog Probably felt uneasy because it could sense it was really cold and there was something wrong with the mans attitude. He felt no love for his master because he tried to kill him. I thinik the turning point is when the guy was trying to survive and finnaly gave up. i Relized he was doomed because he was letting him self down by saying "there are worser ways to die then to freeze". His wild idea was to kill the dog and after when he couldn't he just wanted to sleep and die. The dog went back because the man was all crazy running around and then all of a sudden he wasn't moving. He could smell death and made sure then he left.
