Window or Mirror?

I have recently been reading the book Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance. I am currently on page 116. I really love this book because I am very interested in finance. In Language arts class, we do something where we decide if a book is a window or mirror. A mirror book is if the book relates to your life in some way. A window book is a book that has nothing to do with your life and is very different from your life. I feel like my book is a window book. Elon Musk is nothing like me. He has hundreds of billions of dollars. He started many successful companies and is 51 years old. This just makes this book a total window for me. I actually like window books though more than mirrors because then I’m taken into a world of new experiences. This is why I chose this Elon Musk book.

Wisdom Tales Project

In Language Arts Class, I had to make a wisdom tales project. I really loved the wisdom tale about A Dispute in Sign Language. This story is about a Monk who wants to become a disciple of another Monk master.

Hope you enjoy!

How the Stock Market Works

How the Stock Market Works

Hello, I’m Benigno. I’m going to teach you how the stock market works.  If you own a stock of a company, that means that you own a little party of that company. If people buy a stock, it will go up as people think that the stock is undervalued. You can make a lot of money from stocks. The greatest investor in the world, Warren Buffet made 100 billion from stocks. If you are interested , you can either open a bank account, or use a simulator. Personally, I use both. My best stock achievement was when I earn 400% off Ford Motor during the pandemic. Thank you for reading!

Benigno’s Backpack

Over the summer, we read the book Finding Someplace by Denise Lewis Patrick. This book was about a girl named Reesie Boone who lived through Hurricane Katrina. Reesie wanted to be a fashion designer in New Orleans. Everything was going perfect until Hurricane Katrina. When Hurricane Katrina came by, Reesie packed all of her mother and father’s most important belongings. She stayed with her neighbor and was forced to escape from the house. Whenever a hurricane is down the road, always be prepared.

 

If I was in Reesie’s situation, I would pack all of my parent’s important belongings as well as my belongings. For food, my pet chickens in my chicken carriers so that I would have eggs on the road. I would also pack camping food, a tent, and an inflatable raft. I will pack these extra things for backup. By now, my backpack would be pretty full. In conclusion, I definitely would pack my parent’s important belongings(or else they would be very mad at me), my important belongings, and basically a survival pack.

Camp Hanes

    At Camp Hanes, the Durham Academy 6th grade had a great experience. We pulled into Camp Hanes on a lukewarm day at 11:30 AM on a charter bus. We first went into the gym building and got to meet the instructors. After that, we played a few games including Combat Master and Four Corners. Afterwards, we were assigned cabins by gender and advisory. Our cabins were full of bunk beds. We unpacked our stuff and headed to lunch.

    We had great food for lunch including salad, and chicken tenders. After that, we were split into 6 groups and assigned different activities. My group/ Group 5 first did archery. During archery, we had to be split into 3 groups, everyone got to go and shoot at least twice. It was very challenging but it made me want to get a bow. Our second activity was canoeing. Personally, Canoeing is my favorite activity. I like canoeing because it’s like swimming but you don’t get wet. The Hike had an amazing view, I thought that it was my imagination but I actually saw Winston-Salem from way up in the mountains. 

    Overall, this field trip was great. I am grateful to the donors and the staff at Camp Hanes. If it were not for the donors, many people at DA and at many other schools might not have been able to connect with one another.
