My World Vision Project

Last week I watched a video about a girl who had to work in a brick factory and couldn't go to school. I found out some families can't pay for school. This made me sad.

Then I found out that I can help. I decided we could make things and sell them and send the money to people who can help. I am going to make things like charms, bracelets, and other things. My mom says she'll help me sell them, and then we'll give the money to World Vision to help girls all over the world go to school. Click on the tab above or here to see what I've made so far!

Why are there Seasons?

My sister has no school today, but I still have school. My sister drew on the floor with a marker and my mom had to wash her mess. Then she forgot I had skating. But I still forgave her. Today I learned why it is cold in winter. The earth is tipped away from the sun in winter, but in summer we're tilted towards the sun.

Spelling Test!

When I was spelling today, I only got three words wrong. My mom said, "How do you know all those words without even studying them?" I said, "Maybe I knew them from birth! Or I saw them when I was reading." Then I laughed so hard I cried. My list for today was long a words: away, baseball, celebrate, daily, mail, make, may, paint, rain, stay, take, wait, way, yesterday.

My Beehive

This week I started my SciGirls activities. I'm making a garden for my bees to get nectar. My bees can fly to other gardens too. Bees use nectar to make honey. Every beehive needs a queen. The queen is in charge of the hive. She has all of the babies. I've seen real beehives at the Harriet Alexander Nature Center, the Tamarack Nature Center, and the Hyland Lake Park Reserve.

Charlotte's Web

Yesterday we saw Charlotte's Web. Charlotte was hanging from a couple of strings. She spun three words in the barn: some pig, terrific, and radiant. At the fair she spelled humble. She saved Wilbur's life. After that she died. But three of her new babies stayed and were Wilbur's friends.

Top Secret Science!

My favorite subject is science. My mom got me a Top Secret Science kit for my birthday, but I saw it before my birthday so she let me use it yesterday. The green powder glows, the orange powder makes slime, and the white powder grows. I even learned how to copy a key with the slime powder. Next time I get to make invisible ink.

We're also growing bean seeds. We got roots to grow without soil. I think a little plant might grow too!

About Me

I am 5 years old. I like cheetahs and other big cats. My favorite colors are pink, purple, red, orange, and yellow. I have one little sister, Kjirsten. I asked  my mom for a blog so I can tell people what I'm learning.
