Heros can be seen in real life and on the movie screen. After watching “The Lion King” there are similar qualities I see between Simba and Bill Gates. Simba has heroic qualities. He helped his pride of lions by protecting from the evil king, Scar. He had to kill Uncle Scar to help his pride get out of some really bad times. In real life, someone I look up to and admire is Bill Gates. Bill and Simba are similar because they both help those around them. Bill and his wife have created a foundation. This foundation promotes technology in poor countries. This technology gives vaccines, clean water, and they also give computers to poor countries. He has changed millions of lives for the better. He gave people many necessities that they lacked. In conclusion, Bill gates are very influential and helped many people.
I have traveled a lot in the 11 years of my life. I think I have traveled more than the average person my age. One reason I travel a lot is that I don’t live near family. Most of my family lives in Minnesota, California, Wisconsin and South Dakota. We have a big family reunion every 5 years and the next one is in Idaho. Idaho is a state I have never been to in my life. There are things to do in Idaho according to Visit Idaho. I have traveled to many of the states in the U.S. and I have traveled overseas. Traveling is fun. I like seeing different places, seeing different sites and meeting people of different cultures.
My Mom and Dad have taken me to many places like Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. We stay at resorts where I meet kids from all over the world. I often play soccer with kids, even though we don’t speak the same language. My grandpa takes my mom, dad, aunts, uncles, and cousins on a big trip every 3 years. We have gone to Cancun, Mexico and Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas. Both places are warm with beaches. The resorts have lots of pools and more food than you could imagine. It is really fun having my cousins there. We play and eat together. We go to shows in the evening. This year we are going to the Moon Palace in Cancun. Here is a picture of Cancun called Cancun Strand Luftbild from dronepicr on Flickr.
Some places I would like to one day see are Croatia, Grenada, and many countries in Europe. There were a lot of hurricanes this year so many islands, like Puerto Rico and Cuba, need time to rebuild due to the horrible hurricane season so I wouldn’t visit there for awhile. Where should I travel next with my family? Any good suggestions?
Christmas in South Korea is very similar to Christmas in America. Christmas is celebrated in South Korea more widely then any other asian country because 25% – 30% of the population is christian. There Christmas is a public holiday so people get the day off of work and school. Churches decorate themselves with lights and a bright red neon cross. Department stores put on huge displays especially in the capital city Seoul. People will decorate they’re houses with decorations and a Christmas tree.
Presents are exchanged usually presents are money. They have a Santa Claus and he wears red or blue. He also is called Santa Kolluso or Santa Grandfather. They eat a Christmas Cake(a sponge cake covered in cream.
On Christmas most of the country will be attending a massive church service. Families will meet together and have big meals. They put up their tree and decorations up on Christmas. If your a couple then it is treated like Valentines Day. Picture by kiki Park from Flickr
My 20% project is teaching dyslexic kids coding.
When I reflect on my 20% project, I feel scared because the people are going to say no. I feel passionate because I like coding. I feel excited I get to do something in school that involves coding.
In November, our first goal is to start developing lesson plans. The first action is to search online for websites that teach code. We will use exercises provided by the websites. The second action is that we will research whether we want buy equipment like raspberry pi, which is a mini-computer where you have to write your own programs to make it function.
The second goal in November is to get permission from the school to come in and teach code. The action is that I will ask the teacher Cyd Rodriguez if we can come in and teach code to her class of 4th and 5th graders.

Twas the end of our evening filled with trick-or-treating. Everyone was wearing out, when in the distance someone noticed a large house at the end of a long street. Hardly a trick-or-treater in sight, we decided to walk down to see close up a house no one had noticed before. When we entered the driveway, there were many jack-o-lanterns with devilish grins. There was a heavy fog covering some of the house. All of us began to slow our steps and we had to make a decision as to who was going to ring the doorbell. John wanted to go home, but I told him not to be afraid. I told him to go ring the doorbell but he refused. I decided to ring the bell before John ran away, and walked up the creaky steps to the front door. My breathing was fast and I felt a little dizzy. I got the up the courage and rang the bell. The door very slowly opened and…..
Please comment what you think will be the best ending for the story.
