A week in Corbett Middle School is fun…

Every week one student in our class gets to sit out the super quiz and write the weekly update.  This week’s update was done by 6th grader Austin Santosa.  Thanks, Austin!

This week in Corbett Middle School we learned about the cardiovascular system, shared our 3D visuals, Lucy and I shared our interviews, and we turned in our final draft copy of our diary that we made about our Renaissance characters.

We also had a guest speaker come and talk to us about delivering babies and her life being a naturopathic doctor. She was really cool and taught us new stuff about our bodies.

My favorite part of the week was definitely sharing visuals. The class made really cool visuals, like Hailee’s. She made a skull, Cole made a whip, and Sarah made a scepter. Last was Andrew Perry’s. He made paint with white eggs and made a brush from actual horse hair, and Lucy? You’re losing to Andrew. The reason I said that is because Andrew and Lucy made the same thing for a contest, but Andrew’s is probably going to be way cooler than hers and Lucy didn’t even turn hers in yet, so Andrew is winning.

The hardest part of this week is sonnets. If you don’t know what that means it is a poem that is 14 lines and each line has to be only 10 syllables. That might seem easy but that’s not all. You also have to have the back syllable always be the strong syllable, meaning that the back syllable has to be the loudest syllable, like beLOW. What wouldn’t be one is RECKless. So the pattern would be 2 4 6 8 10 are the loud syllables and 1 3 5 7 9 would be the quiet syllable.

That’s pretty much it in a week in Corbett Middle School. See you next time.
