Home » Hey!


So this blog post will be a little different. I’m going to write from some prompts Nancy wrote.


During PEH this week I… Wrote in my LisTEN journal that my aunt wrote. Helped Jackson read, and worked on fractions


New activities I tried this week were.. Mystery Science, One of the ones we did were, how to win tug of war with an elephant. So, I thought it was gonna be something with science like pull a different way or something. Nope. Roller skates. The answer is to put roller skates on an elephant. It was pretty disappointing but its a good laugh. Also, I didn’t copy @tessao, mine would have been published earlier, but I was almost done and my whole post all the sudden erased. Next, Writers Workshop. Writers Workshop has started and I am writing a book, not ready to share it yet though. Every Monday we go to another location and write, every Wednesday we stay at school and do it. Last but not least, peg people! We paint the wood people figures with paint and cut felt in shapes. I made a fairy, and princess, and a gnome.


Next week I plan to.. Make bath bombs with Melissa. Today we went shopping for the supplies and I’m really excited to make them.








Keeping a wild animal in a zoo is inhumane



It is. Just imagine. You and your family are having a nice dinner and some people come up to you and drag you and your family away. You are in a small dark box and the next thing you know little kids are making faces at you, adults taking pictures, you’re in a small cage, you’re lonely, your family is never to be seen again by you, and last but not least, the wild is forever gone. Imagine spending every day with faces up to the cage walls and stuck in that cage for the rest of your life. It is so inhumane and cruel. Yes I love going to zoos but its just mean.

    Wow, Elisha! I was so impressed this afternoon with how composed you were when the computer got unplugged and your whole blog got erased. I really enjoyed reading this blog, so I’m glad you re-wrote it! The zoo thing is a tough one. I think zoos do a lot to educate kids about animals and inspire them to care about them – and, I think good zoos try to help endangered species. But it is hard for me to watch the animals in small enclosures too, so I understand how you feel.

    Elisha, through your description, I could really feel the way the animals would feel if they were plucked out of their home and family and put in a zoo. 🙁
    I am looking forward to making bath bombs with you next week. Yay!!!!
