Cloud Art

Today at the lake my mom and I made cloud art with an app called Skitch. We took pictures of clouds and drew what we saw.

I made this lamb and my mom made the lady dancing.

I made a dragon and my mom did a whale.

Today I wonder...

This morning I wondered where the word gymnastics came from. Tonight we are watching more videos from Wonderopolis. They do not have one about gymnastics so we picked different ones instead.

The wonder of the day: How are mountains made?

My guess: I think mountains are made of rock and dirt. I don't have any guesses for how the rock and dirt gets there.

Mom's guess: My mom says she already knows, so she isn't going to guess. She taught this in Geography class.

What I learned: Watch what I learned on Educreations!

Another wonder: What is a volcano?

My guess: A volcano is a mountain with a big hole in it and it has lava.

Mom's guess: Mom knew this one too. Next I want to do one she doesn't know!

What I learned: My guess was right! A volcano is a hole that leads down to the crust and the mantle. Inside the volcano is magma. Lava is when it shoots out. I learned that nobody knows how many volcanos are under the ocean.

One more wonder: What happens if you swallow gum?

My guess: I think the same as my mom this time. I wonder if the gum tree video is true...

Mom's guess: It gives you a tummy ache and is harder for your digestive system to process.

What I learned: Gum takes about 2 days to digest and goes through like other food. But you still shouldn't swallow it.

Now I wonder how long it takes to digest regular food...

I wonder...

Tonight my mom and I watched some Wonderopolis videos. The wonder was: Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

My guess: The bottle is made of something special

Mom's guess: Some sort of reaction with the air once the glue is out of the bottle

What we learned: I think my mom is right because in the video they told us to make sure you clean up your glue and screw the top on so it doesn't dry up. The air makes it dry up because there is water in the glue and when the water evaporates all that is left is the polymers. Polymers are what make things stick together.

Next we watched one where the wonder was: Where is the largest zoo?

My guess: I think it is in the United States

Mom's guess: San Diego Zoo

What we learned: We were both kind of right. Lots of places say they are the biggest zoo. In a game reserve you can hunt animals, but in a zoo you care for them and feed them and everything. The word zoo comes from zoology, which means studying animals.

Then wondered: What does a fox really say?

My guess: The same as dog

Mom's guess: Ringdingdinggerdingadingding!

What we learned: Different languages have different words for what animals say. A fox sounds like a dog and makes a sound that almost sounds like a scream. It hunts like a cat.

Next time we'll learn more!

Shelter Animals

I got out of school early to go to Ames and take Opie and Burke to Iowa State. We stayed in front of the library. More dogs came to. People came to pet them and we talked about them. I had fun. We did this for people to adopt animals. I wanted Lor to come but 3 dogs in 1 car was a lot and she would probably jump on people. It started to rain for like 10 seconds then it stopped. The group we went with is Bailing Out Benji. I learned about puppy mills from the papers we handed out. Did you know 100,000 puppies are sold from Iowa puppy mills annually,48% of puppies are sold from a  puppy mill are sick which means 48,000 sick puppies are sold from Iowa as healthy every year through pet stores and online sales. 46% of people believe shelter animals are less desirable than those obtained from breeders. But I love Opie and he is a shelter animal. We saved him. And I love Lor. When we got home I snuggled Lor so she didn't feel lonely.

Tonight I made a build your wild self. I chose this because I thought it would be fun. I mixed the animals because then it would be a normal animal. I loved making it. It is a mixture of animals so it would be able to live everywhere.

Rylee's Real World

 I love my sheep and family your pets even farm animals can be in your family. Opie and Lor and Snowflake and Capton and my sheep are in my family even my cats. I love them I take care of them everyone takes care of there pets even if you are alergect to them. I know that they love me. My papa and dad try to save sheep but you can't always do it keep trying you will succeed just keep trying you will get it right. I know that everyone has something they love I know that you have a heart.

 Today I am a 2nd grader and it teaches me that you have to keep trying and that the hole earth is filled with learning I watch people I know to learn to do things I watch the world to learn and do things. I watch my brother to learn how to play angry birds go. I watch my friends to see what the can do. All because of the world you can learn. I watch dad and he levels up higher and higher on Hay Day. This is my world and I love  it. I know my world it knows me. Today I see the perfect world. I don't care if it's Monday or Friday what matters is that I have fun. Now the world is full of excitement all because of the people who changed the world. I have the best world because of my family and friends and pets and everything I love the world100% and my family 100% or even more. Everything has a place even in space. The world has bully's but my teacher said you have to learn to deal with them. I watch my brother to learn new games. I do gymnastics to get stronger. I love my world and you know it.  Now the world has hundreds of heros and the first presedent Goerge Washington is one for making Amarica free.   I learned every Holiday is special for how you celebrate it. I know you can't always get what you want when you are a kid but when you start to grow up you can. The best thing of all is making my baby brother laugh. The best part of my life is playing with my family. Crackers had her baby's a girl 2 boys one boy died 2 lambs left. The names are Cutie and Little lamb.

Me and my sheep

Lilly Crackers and new baby sheep love me. I love my sheep to. They are in my heart and I'm in there's. 
I have a poem:

Sheep are wooly filled with care. 
You can show them at the fair. 
Sheep die and have baby's. 
I love my sheep
They love me to. 
I have new sheep and sheep that go,
But I love them all. 

They make me laugh when they play and run and when I train them that's funny to. Today I know all about them and they know all about me. When I laugh I feel like I have them with me and I feel them in my heart. Dad and papa take care of them and I do to. They save the day when sheep are sick.
