Report Card



So much depends upon



A bad report card



With bad grades inside



Waiting to be read.



 



 Soccer Ball



So much depends upon



A bouncy soccer ball



Shot by a player



Into the open goal of the opposing team



   



Pencil Case



So much depends upon



A full pencil case



With colorful pencils



Waiting to be opened by me



 



 Pencil



So much depends upon



 A blunt pencil



In the hands of a human



Hoping to be sharpened



 



Soccer Player



So much depends upon



A soccer player



With the ball



Near the goal, hoping to score.



           Goalie



So much depends upon



A sweating goalie



Wanting to block the penalty



Wanting to help his team.



 



Dirty Shoe



So much depends upon



A dirty shoe



Under the table



Waiting to be polished



 



Paper



So much depends upon



A crumbled paper



Rolling down the street



Thrown by someone who wants to pollute.

I am a fifth grader and I want to explain how it is up at the roof.



First of all, the fifth grade building is really far from the roof, so on our way many people are bunching up and not talking or whispering, but almost shouting. When we are right next to the door, we get stopped and sometimes were 10 minutes late! When we enter, some people want to play soccer straight away, and some people are just fooling around playing soccer with basketballs. And when we play, it’s mostly cheating and fouling.  At the end of recess we are supposed to line up in front of the door. A teacher that always comes for recess duty for 5th grade lets 5A and 5B go first. Followed by us, 5C and 5D. The thing that bothers me is that 5A and 5B are bunched up, talking, and playing. AND THEY GO FIRST!!! We, class 5C are the quietest class and just because we are a class “C” we go before last; it is all not fair. Even 5A admit that 5C deserves to, MOST of the time; not all, be first, or at least before first. And we have to wait at the top of the stairs even though it’s not us talking; it’s either 3rd grade or the class behind us. Let’s just go back to last month, February’s virtue of fairness. It is mostly unfair up at the roof.

As I hope you know, I don’t like sleeping in strange places without my family. I never went to Faqra in grades 3 and 4, and didn’t sleep in Deir el Qamar in 5th grade, and now my classmates went to Ramlieh. Look, I would’ve gone to Ramlieh if they were going to go for the whole day but not slept there!



On the note, it said that if I didn’t want to go to Ramlieh, we had to go to class 5A or 5B. I was used to that, because last time that happened when my classmates went to Deir el Qamar. I chose class 5A (like last time).



 When the day came,

Facts we learned about the Cardiovascular System



 



·         The heart has four chambers, the left and right atrium and the left and right ventricle.



·         Deoxygenated blood –dirty blood.



·         Oxygenated blood-rich blood.



·         The left atrium receives oxygenated blood from the lungs through the pulmonary vein.



·         The left atrium contracts causing the mitral valve to open sending the blood to the left ventricle.



·         The left ventricle contracts sending the blood all over the body through the aorta.



·         The aorta is the largest artery in our body.



·         The Septum is a thick muscle that separates the right chamber from the left chamber.



·         The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the body through the Superior and Inferior Vena Cava



·         The right atrium contracts causing the tricuspid valve to open sending the blood to the right ventricle. 



·         The right ventricle contracts sending the blood to the lungs through the Pulmonary artery so you could exhale it.



·         The dietitian informed us to eat fish because it has omega 3.



·         Veins carry deoxygenated blood.



·         Arteries carry oxygenated blood.



·           The esophagus carries food.



·         The windpipe/Trachea carries O2.



·         The heart is the only muscle that never stops working.



·         The different chambers work simultaneously in the heart.



·         Fiber stops your arteries from clogging.



·         Exercising brings up your HDL that burns your LDL.



·         There are three different types of blood vessels, arteries, capillaries, and veins.



·          We could have half a chocolate bar every day, and not on a daily basis.



·         The left ventricle is the strongest chamber in your heart.



·         Capillaries connect arteries and veins.

Reflection of What we Learned from our Visitors-Miss Jeanette Karam and Dr. Antoine Abchee



 



When our two visitors came, I learned so many facts about the heart and what is healthy for us. Early in the morning, our dietitian, Jeanette Karam came to speak about what is healthy, I learned many interesting facts that I told to my dad and mom just when I left school. She put a basket of fruits and some vegetables for us to eat. She said that we should eat fruits and exercise on a daily basis- which I don’t do. Later in the afternoon, our cardiologist Dr. Antoine Abchee came and told us about the heart. He brought a model of the heart and told us stories and things that could happen / happened about the heart. We asked him questions and he answered them. I learned so many things, and I decided to exercise, eat fruits every day and never to smoke or drink alcohol.

I Made a Mistake


 




I went to the zoo to see a wild boar,


I made a mistake… and opened the door.


 


I went to the library to get a book,


I made a mistake…and got hanged on a hook.


 


I went to Italy to go to the museum,


I made a mistake…and entered the Colloseum.


 


I went to Hamra to go to a shop,


I made a mistake…and got swept by a mop.

————————————————————————

Copernicus and his belief:



A long time ago, people used to think that the sun, moon and the planets go around the earth.

Copernicus, said that the earth, moon and planets go around the

Sun. No one believed him. Because he thought that, they killed

Him. Galileo believed him. So, he went to prison. Now everyone believes him. I said this: I will prove that Copernicus was right… and Galileo AND Einstein.
