8th grade Biology

One thing that we learned about was the food web and the food chain. Learning about these helped me understand the system. We talked about carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. I learned about what eats what and how the web and chain works. This all ties in with biology. We also learned about the ocean system. Humans rely on oceans for food, transportation, energy, and trade. The humans have changed the oceans through activities such as: pollution, overfishing, and climate change. We also learned about adaptations. There is behavioral and genetic. Behavioral changes in the way they act or react. Genetic changes in the physical characteristics of the species. We learned about ecosystem resources. Ecosystem resources are classified as biotic or abiotic. Biotic is living parts of the ecosystem. Abiotic is nonliving parts of an ecosystem such as: air, water, light, soil, PH, and temperature. We learned about heterotrophs and parasites. Heterotrophs have a relationship with what they eat described as predator and prey. Predator eats and prey get eaten. Parasites are heterotrophs that live in or on another organism. This is everything I learned from biology.

Stage Character Chp. Excerpt from the novel
Denial Jenna 6-8 She keeps saying, “I’m waiting for him to come home from work.” She is like this is not happening. She isn’t accepting it. On the other hand, Michael knows that he killed a man, and he has to accept it.

Bargaining Michael All chp. In all chapters, he is thinking, if I wasn’t messing around, if I wouldn’t have shot that gun in the air, and if my grandpa wouldn’t have gave me that gun. Michael is thinking of all these what ifs.
Depression Jenna All chp. In all chapters, Jenna doesn’t want to cry, because when her dad dies, she didn’t want to feel bad about it. She is kinda keeping it in. She won’t let it out, so it’s building up. Keeping it in, is going to affect her later, because something is going to happen and she is just now going to let it out, and she is going to get more depressed.
Acceptance Jenna and Michael 6-8

All chp.

When Jenna got the letter that Amy got her, Jenna realized that it was okay to cry and to be sad. Jenna accepted that he isn’t coming back. She also realized that there was someone experiencing the same thing. For Michael, really in all chapters, he is saying “I killed a man.” He says stuff like “I am the Ward murder.” So, Michael is accepting that he killed someone.

 

Swallowing Stones Book Review

”Swallowing stones”  by Joyce McDonald, is a suspenseful book about an accident that turned a teenage boy’s life around. Michael Mckenzie had a fourth of July party, this party was on the day that Jenna Ward’s father died. Michael Mckenzie was showing off his gun around noon, that was when Jenna’s dad got shot. Throughout this book, Michael digs himself in deeper holes to not show evidence. The killer gets turned to different people, because they don’t really find evidence. At the end of the book, they think they have found the killer, but he isn’t the killer. The killer finally turns himself in, but you won’t be happy.

CONCERT!

After the concert I saw a group of  like 50 people. So I said ” Mom what are they doing?” My Mom said” I don’t know.” Then I noticed Scotty  McCreery’s bus. When I saw his bus I was in like shock. So I, My Mom, and My Friend walked over there. Like 30 minutes later Scotty came out and was touching everyone’s hand. When I saw that he was about to touch my hand my heart started pounding and I was thinking the guy that just won American Idol is about to touch my hand. Then I knew that I was going to remember that moment for the rest of my life.

2013 to 2014

In 2013, it was a crazy year.The things that I will always remember is that, the White Oak football team went so far that White Oak hasn’t even went this far since 1971, that’s 42 years! Our football boys went to the semi-finals. It was a great season. Another thing I’m going to remember is when I got my dog. It wasn’t my first puppy but, it was my first Boxer. My family and I named her Sadie. When we got Sadie she was small but, now she’s gotten a little bit bigger. She loves to play. Also, I’m going to remember when my sister, Jensen made cheer. It was Jensen’s first year of high school. She tried out for cheer and she made it. When Jensen found out she made it, she screamed and jumped up and down. She was excided. For 2014, I want it to be a great year. I have some goals for 2014. My first goal, is to get better at reading. Understanding reading and to love to read. My second goal is going to be hard if, you are not careful. It is to pass both STAAR Test! Something I want to stop doing is fighting with my brother and sister. I am going to be nice to them and not annoying. One thing I want to learn about this year is more about reading. I’m going to do this by understanding what is says and watch closely to the question. Four more books I want to read this year is Bailey School Kids, more holiday books, animal books, and Catching Fire.
