My Side of the Mountain

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.
In the last few weeks my class has been having book clubs for different books and everyone had to participate in at least one book club, the book I read was My Side of the Mountain. After we read our books we had to write a glog, for those of you who don’t know what a glog is, it’s like a blog except that your can move the paragraphs around and change the angle they’re on. Well any ways this is the glog I wrote.

Earth Day Creativity

I skip along the path as happy as can be

I stop and look around for some where to sit

I see trees around me, some looking as if they’re about to fall down

I make a mental note not to lean on them

I keep on looking

I see trees in groups as if old friends talking to each other

I notice the moss on them and it reminds me of clothing

I look on and see log “it’s perfect” I say mentally

it had white mushrooms on the bottom of it but the top was striped of bark

and had what looked like tunnels cut in half

a bug must have done it when the bark was still on I thought

my silence broke and I heard a whistle blow three slow times

I got up from the log and skipped back

later I would go back, I smiled

Were I Belong

I open my eyes and stare out on the empty plain

I can hear the howl of the wind and I feel it on my bare arms,

it was a warm wind not not like a cold winter wind

I turned and looked behind me

I see nothing

I turned and looked in front of me again

I see something

I squint and I see, it’s a person

I blinked and squinted harder to see what looked like a small hill with legs

but as it comes closer I realize what it is

it’s my family

my Mom, my Dad, my sister and all friends

as I ran towards them the world around me changes

and I was back home in the arms of my friends, family and everyone I love

“I know where I belong.” I said out loud.


Hi everyone,

camouflageIn my class last year we did research on some of our family members. For theĀ  research we had to find out where they were from and so I learned what my backgrounds are. they are, Swiss, South African, German, English, Scottish and Italian. What are your backgrounds? If you don’t know you should do some research on it and find out you mite be surprised where some people in your family can come from. Well if you do know where some people in your family come from please comment because I’d like to know where some other peoples family members are from. It would be interesting to find out.

Bye for now.
