|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
I think this lesson helped me because I learned how to change my voice to make things sound more accurate, and make it sound like know the story very well. For example, when I saw an exclamation point ahead I knew that I would have to sound louder, or be enthusiastic. I also learned, while I was making my podcast, how to make sure your voice doesn't echo when you are listening to the recording. It was very fun also to write the stories and learn about my characters.
I think that in school, a podcast is more valuable than printing out a story, because it shows more how the character is feeling.

Today is Earth Day! We took a walk outside to look a little more closely at nature, and the world we live in.
We should treat our earth with more respect. We can do that by carpooling or walking/biking to school.
When I took the walk I also noticed many things about nature and the earth. On the trees I saw moss and learned that it only grows on the north side of the tree. I also noticed how buds were the same color of the leaf or flower they were growing to be.

Great Britan ruled the 13 colonies. Every body that lived in the 13 colonies were subjects to Great Britan. Many people came to live and visit the 13 colonies. They saw it was unique, and bigger than other nations. There the land was cheap, and in Europe, only the rich people could afford land. That is why so any people came, they wanted to own land. In the colonies many people had land with farms on them to feed their families and themselves.
When there is a captain and a crew on a ship the Captain usually treats the Crew very badly. For example, they whip crew members for things they did not do, or they punish them. In our class we have decieded, with a debate, that the Captain's should have limits to their power.
If we have limits hten they should be that the captain can not use a whip. He shouldn't because they can hurt people
