This week we had a visitor coming and teaching us about biomass, how it's made and how we can use it. Biomass is basically waste like animal poop, it gets rotten and the gas comes up the energy forms and the left over is used for good for growing plants. Biomass energy is good cause it's clean for the environment, saves time and it's renewable.

Next time if did this I would put my story into past tense. I think that I did well Using and putting paragraphs into my writing. To me It was challenging to describe objects or places. Firs we had been give 10 minutes to brain storm and create a story arc, then we had 50 minutes to write a draft. Afterwards we typed it on the computers went back and made changes to it like grammar and punctuation, we gave our papers to Mr Nathan and he edited them. We fixed our mistakes and published again, then we had a publishing party when we ate popcorn and read our stories to ur buddies.

The Forgotten Suitcase
While I walk my dog , I see my dad sitting on the bench with his suitcase. “Dad,” I call out to him. He lifts his head,
“Hi Matthew” he calls back.
While I start sitting next to him, a yellow taxi arrives and dad stands up. “Where are you going” I ask,
Dad turns around and says “I’ll come back soon.”
“Bye,” I call out while the yellow taxi drives away, leaving gray smoke behind.
As I come home I notice an old fashioned brown suitcase, as I look closer I recognize it; it’s my dad’s, I take it home with me. When I get home I see my little sister with mom having breakfast, my little sister is only 7 and I’m 13, her name is Megan.
“Matthew have you seen dad” Says mom, I tell her how he drove away without his suitcase. She starts to call him but he doesn't pick up the phone.
Meanwhile, dad arrives at the airport and starts running because there are only 30 minutes before his fligh. He hears his phone ringing, but declines. Soon he notices that his suitcase is missing. He must have left it back at the bench, he thinks to himself. He takes a taxi and goes back home.
Mom opens the door, happy to see dad. Then he comes in and sits at the table “I missed my very important work flight to London, now I can’t get my promotion and i’ll probably get fired. But why don’t we go to London on a family trip, so I can get my promotion and we’ll have a great family time.”
“Sure”, mom says, ”Meghan, Matthew come downstairs we are all going to go on a family trip to London so your dad doesn't have to miss his very important business flight.”
“Yay” me and megan are shouting.
Me and Meghan are going upstairs to pack our stuff, as we come back down the yellow taxi arrives, dad stands up from the bench and we all settle in. We drive away leaving gray smoke behind and dads old fashioned brown suitcase.

This week Grade 5 did a huge project we had to chose a person who migrated from a place to another place then we had to research about them and their migration story. I chose Camila cabello because I wanted to know more about her. I organized my information using a story arc. I got my information from different pop singers sites.We had to find perspective, obstacles, change,causation. Then on Friday we had a wax museum I pretended to be Camila Cabello and I explained about my migration story. I needed help with someone listening to my speech and tell their feedback. If I had to do it again I would of add more things onto my poster and I could of worked more on my speech. Here is a video of my presentation.
