My Summer

hello, its Ava do you remember me from last year? so its the start of another school year an  dim going into grade 8. i wanted to blog about my summer since i didn’t want to say anything about covid seeings as we seem to be talking about that a lot lately which is no surprise considering the events in our world today. but enough Tools to help keep kids safe on the farm this summer | Grainewsabout that you cab read that on other blogs today i am going to be talking about my summer of 2020….

my summer started off with going on a camping trip with my grandparents, it was really fun we did lots of water activities such as fishing,swimming,tubing,and playing on a super awesome water lily pad. i went fishing multiple times but didn’t manage to catch anything, we also took the boat for a ride to this old cabin that the old miners used to use it was really cool!! after we got back we stayed home for a little while, i worked at the farm a little i worked with my pet heifer i kinda forgot to name her so she answers to girl. after we were home for a little but we went camping with my parents to bakers narrows, it was also really fun my auntie, her husband and my baby cousin cam out for a couple of days which was fun it was a really long drive though!! we also did lots of water stuff there but it was better cause we actually caught fish, the beach and the campground where really pretty and we went tubing a couple of times but not too much. i didn’t hang out with that many friends but it was ok since i hung out with my BFF a little bit, this summer was also kind of a bummer because we didn’t get to go the British Columbia to see my grandparents and that is always my favorite part of the summer! my great nanny also had to move to an old folks home which was hard for all of us but im sure she will make friends.

that was about the extent of my summer i hope that you enjoyed my blog see you next week

First Days of School 2020!!!

Hello and welcome to back to school!  This year has thrown us some crazy twists and turns, but together we can do this.  Below are your training wheels and jeopardy games to help with your orientation to this new way of doing school (and how to do well in Mr. Ewert’s class).  Let’s get started.

And now it’s time for Jeopardy to see if you remember all of that!!!

Part 1 – https://jeopardylabs.com/play/2020-09-06-107

Part 3 – https://jeopardylabs.com/play/first-days-of-school-2020-edition-2

 

Now let’s create a bulletin board of how we are feeling right now.  We will use this as a background for our first art project of the year.

Go to the common document that can be found in Microsoft Teams linked to in the general tab.  Click on it, add your words.  You might even like to repeat the words of others in there if you feel they represent you as well.  When you are finished Mr. Ewert will make the universal copy for you to begin your artwork.

Go to this link to make your very own now.

How does yours compare?

Now cut it out into a shape that represents you right now. An animal? An object? A profile sillhuette?

Put it on the board for others to see.

The Farm

Hello, its been a while since ive posted a blog! Today I will be blogging about my farm, as you  may revall from previous blogs that I have aVeal Crates family farm. So todays blog will be about the current situations we are facing on the farm and in general how things are going. Without further ado lets get started.  We are facing a couple of problems on the Farm as of right now, first off we have a flu going around the calves right now call scours. Think of it as the coronavirus of calves. Scours is caused by the lack of grass that we have right now, when the calves are laying down or sticking their heads in the ground they can pick up a bug which causes them to get sick. The lack of rain and grass is a very big part of why this is going around right know, the cows have eaten all the grass down to almost nothing so all the bugs are that much more exposed. A way to fix the problem would be for the cows to be in a bigger pasture with more grass so the virus will be gone as the grass will be longer. The reason we cannot move the cows to their summer pasture is we are holding off as long as we can so the virus doesnt spread their and so the grass can get nice and long and yummy. As for the rest of the farm it is going well, we have a a really big baby calf that was born a couple of weeks ago who has no mother. He is doing well and getting healtheir. So that is my blog post for this week I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.
