I Am The Summit – Week 10 Final Blog Post


BY Layne 


I am The Summit

I am covered in flags, symbolizing that I am the last checkpoint

I wonder when someone new will reach me, or if they will make it at all

I hear crunching footsteps

I see triumphed faces

I want to see the boy make it


I am The Summit

I pretend that the climbers hurt themselves for a reason

I feel their happiness, and their sadness

I touch the sky

I worry about the people who are struggling to reach me

I cry when I see them fall, fail, or die


I am The Summit

I understand the climbers’ happiness

I say, “You can do it, boy! You can reach me!”

I dream that they will see their families again

I try to let them up, to watch the climbing party go farther up

I hope he makes it

I am The Summit

Ireland – Week 8 Post

Dia dhuit! Welcome to Ireland! I don’t live in Ireland, but half of my family is from there. Ireland is a country in Europe. The main language they speak there is English, but the traditional language is Gaelic. It is a very interesting country with 4.784 million people living in it. I hope to travel there someday and see the roots of my family!

My Favorite Music – Week 6 Blogging Challenge

This is an uncommon opinion, especially for fifth graders, but my favorite band is Panic! At The Disco. My second favorite band is My Chemical Romance. They’re both rock bands, but MCR (My Chemical Romance) broke up. I still    listen to their music everyday, even though they don’t make new music. P!ATD (Panic! At The Disco) recently made a new album. I recommend listening to it! Here is the link to the main song of Pray for the Wicked. The picture  is the main singer in P!ATD, Brendon Urie.

About My School – Blog Challenge Week 5

 I go to private independent school in eastern Pennsylvania. We have engineering and design, Spanish, science, art, music, and many more specials. I chose the swings because they are my favorite thing on the playground. I go there and hang out everyday with my friends when we can. It’s super fun to twist around and go super high!

Giving Credit for Images

Hi! What I noticed a lot of people doing was using images from Pixabay and sites like that, but I decided to share something I like doing! This is a drawing I made for someone. It is based off of their avatar on a game. Something you should know is that sometimes it can be illegal to use images without credit. Make sure to credit the creators, sometimes it can make the creator feel bad too. Make sure to give credit when using an image and make sure you write it properly. You never know what could happen if you don’t!

How-To Write a Quality Comment

1. Always ask questions! I think it’s super fun to engage in conversation with others, and answering questions encourages it.

2. Give compliments. It always makes my day reading something nice that someone else thought!

3. Disagreeing is okay. You can share your opinion, or agree to disagree. Engaging in conversation and sharing your thoughts on the matter is always okay.

4. Stay on topic. It’s always cool to see someone commenting about what you posted about and enjoying and relating.

That’s all of the advice I have! If you would like to test these tricks feel free to comment down below!
