MaKey MaKey Creations

MaKey MaKey Project

One day I had this idea of “goosebumps” ;little bumps which you touch. They were connected to markers wrapped in tinfoil (the goosebumps were made out of  tinfoil as well). Why this is different from just having tinfoil is because there is a specific place which you touch, so you won’t touch the tinfoil.

These were my plans:

I tried this and it actually worked!

Next time I would like to make a MaKey MaKey  project that has very little tinfoil.

Here is a picture of a “goosebump” :

Here is how it works:

Poems About Me by 5B Class of 2027

Etheree

Me

Alya

A Tall giraffe

A Lazy koala

A shining star

An Annoying parrot

As fast as a cheetah

As athletic as Ronaldo

By Alya Ahmed

I AM ALI

I am the silence of the nights.

I am the birds of the mornings.

I am the thoughts of the dark forests.

I am the deep heart of the wells.

I am the father of all animals.

I am the storm after the calm.

 

Ali Al Dailami in 5B

 

 

 

Mohammed

My thoughts are like a flower opening for the sun
Opening the doors to find my dreams
Heart of my family , joy of my mom
As smart as a fox , hard working like a bee
Man of the house when my dad is away
My eyes are black like the long dark night
Eleven years old I am happy to be
Do you like this poem I wrote about me ?

 

By Mohammed Sadeq Ali

 

An Etheree Poem About Me

Me

Hussain

A smart kid

As strong as rock

As fast as cheetah

I’m a spider that climbs walls

I swim like a fish to cool

I’m a sun because I’m shiny

Like sloths I become lazy lately

I am like a hawk I get what I target

My mind is a notepad that never forgets

Done by: Hussain Mohamed (5b)

 

I Am Poem     

I am the taste of a yummy cocktail.

I am the smell of different flowers.

I am the sight of a beautiful sunset on a tropical island.

I am the sound of chirping birds and a nice breeze.

I am the taste of summer.

I am bright as the sun.

I am the sound of crashing waves

I am the touch of soft sand.

I am the taste of different kinds of fruit.

I am the smell of peace.

I am the sight of clear water and seashells on the sand.

I am a paper boat floating on the water.

I am a pod of dolphins.

 

By Noor Jassim

 

I am as tall as a palm tree

I am as strong as an ox

I am as kind as a heart

I am as good a support as a wall

Cooking for my parents Day 6 (23/4/2020)

Today I made Gourmet Goulash

This is a picture of me stirring all the vegetables and the beef until it is cooked

You will have to cook the beef first and in the meanwhile cook the pasta then drain the pasta and add the cheese packets once drained. Then in the same frying pan cook up the vegetables and then mix the pasta and the vegetables together.

I will be making another post for all the recipes I cooked this week

See you next time,

Jerome W.

Cooking for my parents Day 5 (22/4/2020)

Today I made Rice & Bean Casserole and My mom’s rocket salad

It was very yummy and had lots of cheese: feta cheese, cottage cheese, and cheddar cheese. I think the Rice & Bean Casserole could be better with raisins, but we didn’t have the right type of raisins to go with it.

See you later,

Jerome W.
