Trump Invents New Word: Covfefe

Trump Invents New Word: Covfefe

Recall Q:

  1. US President Donald Trump is the main person in this article.
  2. The key event was Donald Trump tweeting “Despite the negative press covfefe.”
  3. This event took place on Twitter and in the US
  4. I think this event took place near June 5, 2017

Thinking Q:

  1. “Despite the negative press covfefe.” Trump said.
  2. In the weekend Trump tweeted “Despite the negative press covfefe.” it grew popularity and was shared over 127,000 times and “liked” more than 162,000 times, the tweet was later removed 6 hours later. In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary the word covfefe was not a word.
  3. I think this event took place near June 5, 2017. In the future I think the word covfefe will be forgotten and not be a word.
  4. This event took place on Twitter and in the USA. Twitter is a website were you tweet/text about anything that happened. The USA is a country with about 323.1 million people.
  5. So far there is no reason why this event took place.
  6. Despite-without being affected by; in spite of.
        President-the elected head of a republican state.
        Abruptly-suddenly and unexpectedly.

Mount everest

                               Mount Everest

Do you know that Mount Everest is the highest mountain on the planet?!!

You might be wondering who the first person  to climb to the top of Mt Everest. This paragraph will tell you the answer (and also the youngest person to climb to the top).
The first person to climb Mt Everest is actually not one person but, TWO! Those two people were Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
Edmund and Tenzing were two brave mountaineers because they risked their lives to climb to the top. There also was another person to climb to the top of Mt Everest and he also was the youngest person as well. Do you know who it was? It was Jordan Romero. He was a young and brave person because he was just 13 when he climbed to the top of Mt Everest!!

My Everest is not a place you want to be because: it’s very cold, it doesn’t get much and there is not much rain! Mt Everest gets as cold as -31 degrees Celsius - so most people actually DIE of frostbite trying to climb Mt Everest! Also it gets no precipitation so you can’t depend on rain to refill your bottle. Good news though no avalanches are here because there is not much wind for example sometimes it’s 6 km/ph.

What are the dangers of Mt Everest? The first danger is the cold. It gets so cold that some people die of frostbite. The second danger is avalanches. Avalanches fall from side of mountains and crush people and suffocate them instantly. The third danger is slipping off the mountain then landing on rocks and resulting in serious injuries. For example: breaking their bones, cracking head open and much more.
 
Mt Everest is a dangerous mountain and climbing it should be avoided.
(Unless you want to be a mountaineer) because of all the dangers and how big it is. So never climb

MT EVEREST!!

Sharks - free verse poem

!Sharks!


Sharks are important
Cute and cuddly - to some!
They have a very good sense of smell
The are brilliant and loyal,
Protective and smart,
Their skin is smooth - but tough.
Sharks are good natured,
They look like babies,
And are critically endangered!
They are beautiful and incredible,
They swim in the sea.

SHARKS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
