  1. Reading:
    1a) The fact that Preacher, who is supposed to be the smartest guy in Buxton, can't even do simple math. Not only that, he stole 6 of the 10 fish that Elijah caught.
    1b) It really shows that Preacher may not be the most trustworthy guy.
    2a) Cowardly, brave, and opposite are some words that come to mind. He acts brave most of the time, but is terrified around snakes. Also, he asks patiently, cleverly, and puts much thought before acting.

    Social Studies:
    1) They made them work on the fields in exchange for housing, food, etc.
    2) In the Middle Colonies, founded by the Dutch, there was lots of fish, fur trade, and there were many great harbors. This caused many people to move to the area.
    3) You would need water, food, timber, and some sort of metal to make weapons.

    Grammar:
    1)
    As I looked AT the hole I had dug, I saw a computer. It was very old and looked like it had crashed THROUGH many windows before I dug it out of the hole. I turned it on, and as I looked AT the dusty screen, I saw a old fashioned game titled "Minecraft." While I was playing, I moved UNDER a tree to get some shade. The screen was becoming really hot BEFORE.
    2)
    a) I watched the football game.
    b) I'm watching the football game.
    c) I will watch the football game.
    d) I have watched a unicorn preform magic.
    e) I had watched a unicorn preform magic.
    f) I will have watched a unicorn preform magic.

  2. Reading:
    1a. Well, its hard for the people who have gone to hide the gold to play games. Also, the defense club (school kids) are trying to come up with ways to have fun. Also, I was wondering if Peter is going to have to take on a big roll for hiding the gold.
    1b. It contributes because then it tells if Peter is contributing a lot to hiding the gold, or not. Also, it changes their attitude if they aren't happy.
    2a. Peter is fun, and likes to be in the action. He is a leader, because he is the captain of the defense club, so he is a role model.
    Social Studies:
    1. The indentured servants had to work in their fields, and serve them for money for an amount of time.
    2. Some resources were wheat, a cash crop, that was planted by colonists. The Dutch first settled there, and found fir trade as a great profit. There was also good harbors, which brought great fishing.
    3. You would need water, fir for warmth, rich soil so you can plant crops, animals for food, and wood for fires.
    Grammar:
    1. I was simply digging in the backyard, and UNDER the dirt I find a very old toy. ON the package, I find that it says "Rainbow Loom Bracelets". "What an old fashioned cranny" I say IN laughter. "I must research ABOUT this toy" I tell myself in my head.

    Hello, I am a Scientist WITH a husband and two daughters and WITH many Inventions to do. I HAVE two very big problems, I'm HAVING trouble comparing two THINGS so I don't KNOW weather one potion is best or the other, my second problem is that sometimes I spend to much TIME in the lab INSTEAD of with my family, so today I was going to the PARK with my kids. When I got to the PARK I sat down on a BENCH and watched my children play with the hologram balls (very hard to play with) then the two girls played in the GRAIN BOX, I watched as they played with the tiny blue grains of METAL. Ten something fought my EYE, it was square shaped and flat, I raced to it and dug some METAL out of the way, I remembered this a long time ago, I remembered the Flappy BIRD dodging the poles, and building towns and cities on minecraft, Then I shouted out "Oh, and IPAD mini! I looked at the smooth corners of the IPAD and in my mind compared it to the IPAD HUGE 23, Then I realized, what a difference!

    1. It was astounding. A box was found under the road while they were paving it with silver. Other scientists thought it was just a broken box but this discovery can help us find out the past. There was a word on it that spelled Wii with a cord and a large black object that I assume was a Samsung. Another elderly scientist said he had ancestors from that period and they called it a Television. We set up the Wii in the lab and started testing it for some data. There was an old website with information about it and some other information about everything from the past. We have made a discovery.
