In Mrs. Krebs class we watched a video about bullying. It was a very great video that I think sent a very good message to us about the hurtfulness bullying can cause. It is called To This Day by Shane Koycan.
In religion class our assignment was to choose a scripture verse where Jesus was talking and letting us know how we can follow him. I choose a verse that I thought we could all learn something from and everybody should always be worshiping God. The scripture verse that I choose was this:
Jesus answered, “The scripture says, ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve only Him!”
This verse comes from Luke 4:8 in the bible. Jesus said this during the time that He was in the desert for forty days and the Devil was trying to tempt him into following him but Jesus said that He would only ever serve God.
This verse means that Jesus choose God and no matter what the Devil try’s to tempt us with we should always be as strong as Jesus was and say no. I thought that this verse was good because we are in the season of Lent now and we should always be focusing on ways that we can serve God and say no to the Devil.
I choose to draw people serving food to the hungry because in our community there are a lot of hungry people and the people that are getting plenty of food should be helping them out because that is what God would want us to do.
Please help us to be more like you in the choices that we have to make. Help us to fulfill our Lenten promises and always say no to what the Devil asks of us and say yes to you.
This genius hour we changed up our groups so that we could do something different. I was with Madi and she taught me how to sew. It was really good to learn. We made a apron and even though it may not have been the best I learned something new. Genius hour has taught me how to learn things that I really enjoy.
In this genius hour it was hard to think of what to do. Then a couple friends and I decided that we wanted to do something with painting our nails. We thought that it would be cool if we could tie die our nails.
So we took a styrofoam cup and filled it with water. Then we took our fingers and wrapped them up in tape leaving our fingernails out. Then we took three different colors of nail polish and put one little drop of each into the water. Then we took our nails and dipped it into the water. After that we took a toothpick and it gathered up all of the excess nail polish. After that we repeated the process until all of our nails were done. Once they are all done remove the tape and let your fingers dry.
We still had about half of an hour left so we decided that it would be cool if we could take words out of a newspaper and copy them onto our nails.
First we had to find some rubbing alcohol and some newspaper. Then we painted our fingernails a light color and let them dry. After that we put each nail into the rubbing alcohol and immediately put the newspaper on top. They ended up being really cool and a really fun genius hour.
