Hello everybody and welcome back. This week my blog will be about what I did over the summer.
I had a great summer; it was a lot of fun. For the first two weeks I didn’t do much. After the first two weeks, I went to the extended school year program at Variety Club. At Variety Club we go swimming every day, but first we have to do some academic work. Every day I would do reading and math. One of the most interesting things I learned about was the Terracotta Army. Just for fun, I am going to give you a couple of historical facts. The Terracotta Army was meant to protect pharaohs in tombs. The army was dug up by some farmers.
After we did some academics, we got to go to specials like art and music. The specials were a lot of fun, but the thing I enjoyed the most was swimming. Every day I would hold my breath for about 46 seconds. The first time I held my breath for more than 30 seconds the lifeguards were very scared. I had a great time in the pool. When I was not swimming or doing academics, I was teaching my classmates calendar skills. How it would work would be I would hold up two cards and they would have to pick the right answer. For example, I would ask them, is today Monday or Tuesday and then they would pick the right answer. Teaching my classmates was fun and challenging at the same time. I think teaching is not as easy as it looks and I appreciate the people that do it well every day. Unfortunately, at the end of the summer I had to get my wisdom teeth out and that was not fun even though I wasn’t in pain afterwards.
At the end of every blog I will give you a question to respond to. Please leave your answer as a comment on the blog. Here is your question for this week. Name one place you went over the summer? That is not your only question, since this is my first blog of the new school year I am desperate for topics. Could you please give me some topics that you would like me to cover this year? Thank you.
See you next week, Chandler 🙂
Hi Chan, I work a lot this summer but my best time was going to the movies with you. I think you could visit different shop of the same thing, like yogurt and give your opinion on how is was how handicap accessible they where.
Hi! I loved reading your blog, this is such a great idea! I’m so glad that your summer was a success! Mine was good too, but I worked a lot, so that wasn’t too fun. But one place that I did love going to was the beach with Melissa! We spent the whole day there, and it was a blast!
I read that you were teaching other students this summer! It looks like you’re following Aunt Donna and Aunt Aly’s footsteps…and hopefully mine in a few years! The fact that you held your breath for 45 seconds is so amazing to me. I would defiantly NOT be able to do that, so good for you!
As far as a suggestion for a new topic for next week… Maybe you could talk about what you “typical week” is like!
I can’t wait to keep updated with your blog! Talk to you soon!
Hi chan! Your summer sounded exciting and a lot of fun! I worked a lot this summer like your mom did but when I had free time I did some fun things as well. The most memorable time I had this summer was going to the Philadelphia Zoo!! There were so many cool animals to see! My favorite animal that I saw there was the tiger! It was so fluffy and cute and I wanted to pet it but I knew I could not because it might have attacked me! I have a question for you, have you gone to the zoo? And if so what was your favorite animal that you saw there?
Great to see you posting again! Also glad to hear your realization about teaching. It’s not as easy as it looks…at least to do a good job. I had a great summer, too! My favorite place to visit was the Strasburg Rail Road with my grandson. He was so excited. Send me your email address and I’ll send you a link to a Shutterfly book that we wrote about the day. Make it a GREAT school year…the choice is YOURS!
My favorite thing to do this summer was to swim in my pool. I also drove to Myrtle Beach SC to visit family for a few days. Glad to see that you are so active an involved in your community Chandler.
Hey Chan! Your summer sounds like fun! I had a baby at the end of the summer- so we spent the summer getting ready to have Emmy and spending extra time with Carter! So exciting to be starting a new school year! How have your first couple weeks been? Any favorite subjects so far? If you liked learning about the Terracotta Army, have your thought about researching other historical sites?
Hi Chandler glad to see you back at work again. I worked the entire summer (to much if you ask me), but I am going to Williamsburg in October. I am also glad you had a good time at the Variety Club this past summer. As for a topic to blog about how about doing something on the Senior Class at Spring ford and how they are getting prepared to graduate this year.
I spent this summer working for Sabra Dipping Co. I got to make hummus all summer, I had never had it before and it turns out it was delicious. I think for a later blog post you could go try lots of crazy new foods (like eel or octopus) and write all about the experience. I’m sure you’ll be able to find all sorts of delicious foods that the rest of us can then try later!
