Wisdom Tales

My wisdom tales story is The Red and Blue Coat. The Red and Blue Coat is about two friends fighting. One day there was a trickster that decided that he should wear a red and blue coat to test the two friends’ friendship. The trickster walked up to the road in between the two houses. One friend saw a blue coat and the other friend saw a red coat. They started arguing to whether the coat was blue or red. Then the arguing went to fighting. Eventually the trickster came back and showed them that the coat was blue and red. The friends stopped arguing and fighting and got mad at the trickster. This story takes place in Africa (more specifically Ethiopia.) The moral of this story is that there are two sides to a conversation. That is my wisdom tale is about.

The Most Surprising NFL Teams

The best team in the NFL is the Eagles. The Eagles are 8-0 and they are undefeated. They have a good player at every position. It is very hard to tell who there best player is, but I would probably say that A. J. Brown is there best player. He plays Wide Receiver and is one of the best in the league. The Eagles are a surprising team because last year they went 9-8 and barely made the playoffs

The most surprising team in the NFL is the Jets. This year they are 6-3. They are 2nd in the AFC east. They beat the Bills last Sunday. The Bills are supposed to be the best team in the AFC. Last year they were an awful team and went 4-13 and were the fifth worst team in the NFL.

Camp Hanes

In the morning on Thursday the 6th grade got on a bus to go to Camp Hanes. When I arrived at my school I set my bags down by the fifth grade pod. Then a charter bus arrived and then I put my bags on the bus. I got on the bus and then I went to Camp Hanes. Once I arrived, we put our bags in the indoor gymnasium. Then we found our cabins.

Once we found our cabins we did some activities. My favorite was canoeing. When we got to canoeing they told us how to board a boat. Then we got a partner, put on our life jackets, and then picked a boat. After that we boarded our boat and went canoeing. After I was done canoeing we went back to the airnasium.

I am very proud that I got to go on a field trip post-covid. I had an amazing experience at Camp Hanes. I had a lot of fun at the activities and having s’mores. My favorite part of the trip was definitely canoeing and having fun with my friends. Camp Hanes was definitely the best field trip I have ever been on.

My Backpack

This summer I read Finding Someplace by Denise Lewis Patrick. This book is about a girl named Reesie Boone. Reesie lived in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. She packed a backpack with important papers, a phone, some food, and a bunch of other things. Then she ended up moving from New Orleans. This book is about a family reuniting.

I decided to write about what I would bring in my backpack if a storm hit my hometown Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I would bring some snacks and candy for food, a pocket knife for any obstacles, a phone and maybe a Nintendo if I get bored. I would also bring a life raft and some paddles for if I need to get in the water, dry clothes for if I get wet, some insurance papers if my house gets destroyed, some books to read If I don’t want to play games, and a picture of my family. That is what I would bring in my backpack if a storm hit my hometown.

Football!

Today I am going to talk about football my favorite sport. The NFL (National Football League) is divided into two conferences the AFC (American Football Conference) and the NFC (National Football Conference).

Each conference has 16 teams the NFC I will tell you them all Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Football Team, (I think that is a really bad name in my opinion like why couldn’t they have any other name!) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Atlanta Falcons

 

Now i will list every AFC team starting with the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Las Vegas Raiders, New England  Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars.

This year the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl though many people thought the Kansas City Chiefs would win the Super Bowl turns out Tom Brady’s experience in the Super Bowl helped them score a lot. The Buccaneers defense helped a lot because the Kansas City Chiefs did not score a touchdown in the entire game.

I am really exited for the NFL draft on April 29th, Everybody thinks that Trevor Lawrence is going to go first in the draft. I will watch the draft and i will tell you my favorite pick was.

first you have to get some cream cheese, Oreos, melting chocolate from the store. Next you have to get a blender and put the cream cheese and 36 Oreos in the blender.

after that you blend it all together. Then you put all the batter into the bowl. Than you get a small ice cream scooper and get all the batter into a ball shape

and then put it on a pan with paper on top of the pan and let it sit in the refrigerator until the Oreo balls harden

once they are hardened then you put all of the melting chocolate into the bowl then you put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. then you take the melting chocolate out and stir it
