Summer Break

Summer break is going to be very busy. I am going to take swimming lessons, gymnastics and soccer!

I’m very exited to sleep in! This summer my family and I are going to make strawberry jam.

This summer I am planning to have a water balloon fight with my friends.


The Crew

The name of my class is called the Crew. The Crew cheers me up when I am sad. My learning partner is Grady. My class is important to me because they help me when I need it. I am thankful for being a part of this class.


Okaidja’s drumming and dancing

The class and I did this thing called Africa Bridge reading challenge. Its where you read one whole  month  and find sponsors to give money to donate for Africa. A man named Okaidja came to my school and taught us how to do African drumming, dancing and singing. My favorite part was the drumming.  He also told us stories about Africa. For example, he told us 2 stories of Anoncie. Anoncie was made up in Ghana. In Ghana Anoncie is a person. I liked the story because Okaidja is a good story teller and I just liked the story.

An Amarican Food

Here is a American food. I think you will like it. The food is GF brownies. It is yummy. I will put the recipe down below. I hope you like them. Here are the ingredients.

1/3c(40 g) Sorghum flour

  • 1/2 c(60 g) Teff flour
  • 1/4c (30 g) potato starch
  • 1/3 c (40g) tapioca starch
  • 1/2c (60) organic cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2sea salt
  • 1/3 c(80 g) non dairy butter, very soft
  • 1/3 ml) coconut oil,melted
  • 1  1/4 c(250 g) organic evaporated cane sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 c(240 ml) warm water

3/4 c(110 g) chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease 9″ by 13″ baking pan
  3. in stand mixer, blend softened butter, oil,
  4. and suger until combined. Add vanilla
  5. alternate adding dry ingredients  and warm water to mixing bowl until both are used. Batter should be very thick (a bit thicker than a traditional brownie batter). If it’s too wet it will still be delicious it just won’t have the crusty top. Mix on high speed for one minut.
  6. stir in chocolate chips/dark chocolate pieces
  7. spread batter with a rubber spatula into prepapared pan.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes.
  9. cool completely in pan Before cutting. Or if desperate, pile in a  bowl with a spoon while still warm and eat it like there’s  no tomorrow um…I mean, eat slowly  and chew completely to enjoy each and every bite of this occasional treat.

Always there for me


By Sophia And Maya

We became buddies in September 2015 and are still buddies. We have buddy class almost every Friday and have lots of fun doing crafts and stuff together. Our favorite part about buddies is spending time together and having fun. Our favorite thing we’ve ever done in buddy class is making BIG snowflakes out of paper to hang on the walls. Me and my buddy have been having fun hanging out this year.

Do you have buddies?

Flat Stanley Adventure With Sophia

I went to Mazatlan, Mexico for spring break. I went swimming, helped poor, played bingo, and most of all had FUN. At one point I went to the market. It is really interesting. We saw pig heads and they smelled really stinky. Last but not least I enjoyed my vacation.

How was your spring break?

Valentines Day Celebration

This is what I did at are party. I played bingo with my Dad. Me and my Dad had a waffle with whipped cream and blue Berries it was delicious. We did word search to It was fun. We also showed are couplets to are special guest.

I like to write couplets. They are cool and fun and I enjoy them. Couplets are short poems that the first two lines you make up and the last word ends with a rhyme. I think couplets are fun for homework. You guys should make couplets too!

Do you like making couplets?
