Literary Character - 
Create a primary character
Give your character physical, emotional and cultural traits.
Write a secondary character who is supportive
Create a secondary character who is oppositional
Create a setting
Create a problem
solve the problem
Reading Log 09/19/35
Little Red Riding Hood
Setting: The woods and Grandmother's house
Primary Character: Little Red Riding Hood
Secondary supportive character: The hunter
Secondary oppositional character: The Big Bad Wolf
Problem: The Big Bad Wolf eats Little Red Riding Hood and Grandmother
Solution: The hunter kills The Big Bad Wolf and removes grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood from the wolf's stomach.
This book seems very unrealistic for many reasons. The wolf eats the two people, but they are still alive. I don't think that a person could stay in one piece and be eaten by a wolf. The chewing process would be deadly. The author covers himself by saying, "He swallowed her in one gulp"
Secondly, the wolf attacks human beings which I believe is plausible but rare in nature.
My story: Og and the Little Grey Wolf by Billy Boren
Primary character: Little Grey Wolf
Secondary supportive character: Og, a caveman and first human to domesticate wolves who's descendants became dogs.
Secondary opposing character: Ug, a caveman and a mean hunter who tries to kill the wolf.
Problem: Ug wants to kill Little Grey Wolf
Solution. Og rescues wolf and they flee Ug's territory. They become companions.
    Little Grey Wolf lost his family in Scandinavia during the ice age because it was so cold. After his family died he fled towards the sun. He hunted along the way. One day he was chasing a rabbit for food when a spear landed in front of him. He ran in the opposite direction. The hunter who threw the spear chased him a few minutes. He ran into a cave and hid. Knowing the cave was inhabited by a fisher Og the hunter (Ug) did not explore it. For the time being he gave up the search.
    Later Og, returned to his cave to sleep. He lied down to rest and landed on Little Grey Wolf who barked and Og screamed and ran out of the cave. Little Grey Wolf followed him out, but instead of attacking him, he licked him. 
    Ug heard the scream and ran towards the cave. Og stopped him. He wanted Ug to stay out of his cave. Ug saw the wolf licking Og, looked at him in disgust and left. All the while wanting to kill Little Grey Wolf and eat him.
    Og caught some fish that day and brought it back to his cave. He cooked it over a fire in front of the cave. Ug cooked a rabbit over a fire nearby. Little Grey Wolf was afraid of the fire, but for some reason trusted the man Og, so he came and sat next to him. Og felt sorry for the wolf and shared some fish. 
    The next day, Ug tried to kill Little Grey Wolf and almost killed Og with his spear. Little Grey Wolf was afraid of Ug, but also felt loyalty to Og, so seeing Ug had no weapon he ran to him and bit hard. Ug cried "Ug, Ow, OOOOH"
    Og cried "Nuh, nuh nuh" and hit the wolf on his hind quarters. The wolf let go, and ran into the cave. Ug grabbed a burning stick from the fire and swung it at Og. Og ducked, Ug burnt himself accidentally. And collapsed unconscious. The snow cooled his burn. 
      Three hours later he awoke very cold and angry. 
    Og feared for his safety and had already fled south towards the sun in the morning. Little Grey Wolf followed him.

Notes: Tonight in your reading log you will see that there is more information required.
Your reading log will require you to identify primary character, supportive character and the stories message. The point that the story is trying to make.
Writing Prompts:
What is your favorite book?
Who is your favorite literary character?
Who is your favorite author, designer, director, musician, actor, writer, cartoonist, performer, producer or teacher?
Two of my favorite authors are Robert Munsch and Dr Seuss for their ability to tell a story that is also a poem while being funny at the same time. My favorite comic book characters are Captain Europe, Dr Gluck, Gecko Man, Under Armor, The Roaring Mouse and Muscle Man. 
Science:                                                                                     François Gonzalez
Today Mr Gonzalez took us for a walk around the outside of the building in science class. He told us to write down the name of every plant or animal that we see. This is an exercise in scientific observation. You walk by hundreds of different plants every day, Do you know what most of them are called, and more importantly do you understand the role each one plays in our ecosystem.
Are the plants you see native and wild, or were they planted and or introduced by humans.
I expect you all to be on your best behavior on this trip. It is not recess, it is class. If you are successful and responsible we will be able to make longer field trips and find more interesting plants and animals to discover. 
Then he gave a three minute lecture on his behavioral expectations of the class while outside.
 (start D.R. Gluck) "In order for me to feel confident in the safety of this class I need to feel confident that they are following the rules." (D.R. Gluck)
He then went on to ask random students in our class what the rules were. So I wrote them down as people talked.
Follow directions the first time
Respect self, others and property
Stay in your seat or in your place in line
Use appropriate voice level for each activity.
Clean up after yourself
Leave things better than you find them
On Campus Field Trip Notes:
At the back of the school is a storage shed is the worm composting bin.
Mr Gonzalez took us there. He said, "We compost all of the school cafeteria's vegetable scraps there.  Then the compost is taken to our Greenhouse where we grow native plants and vegetables. The school uses the vegetables grown in the greenhouse for our cooking classes." 
    Mr Gonzalez cleared his throat and continued "Red worms turn food scraps and bedding into high quality compost suitable for use on house plants, seedlings or general garden use. The bedding is moistened brown leaves, shredded newspaper, cardboard or clean food shavings." 
    "To maintain this system, simply bury the food scraps throughout the fully bedded bin. To bury your food scraps dig a hole in the bedding, put in food scraps and cover completely with clean bedding. A properly maintained worm bin should be nearly odorless. Flies may be controlled and bedding maintained by placing a sheet of plastic or cardboard on top of the bedding.
    "Every 9-12 months the partially finished compost and/or bedding should be moved to one side of the bin and left to age. New bedding is added to the empty side of the bin."  
    "Then you bury food scraps only in the new bedding. Within 4-6 weeks the worms will move from the aging compost and populate the new bedding. The finished compost may now be harvested and the open space in the bin can be rebedded. Any large un-composted food scraps can be added back into the bin.    
    Worm bins can be kept outside or in a cool indoor space such as a basement or a garage. Outdoor worm bins should be located in a shady protected area. To keep your worms from freezing in winter, keep your bin fully bedded. Worm bins can also be insulated with bags of leaves or straw bales placed around and on top of the bin.
    Worm bins can also be made from recycled materials, wooden boxes, or other containers. All worm bins must have drainage holes in the bottom to drain excess liquid and a tight fitting lid to keep moisture in and pests out. Do not use treated wood of any kind.

Performing Arts Class                                                       Ms Catherine Nemo
My name is Ms Catherine Nemo. I teach Performing Arts and Technology. I switch back and forth between the two, on blue days I will teach Performing Arts and on black days I will teach Tech. 
I will be doing a ten class series on acting, Followed by ten classes on music performance. 

Dramatic Characters:
Dramatic and fictional Characters display traits that are essential to the development or unfolding of a story.
When you read a story, watch a movie or a live play and even sometimes in concerts people and animations portray characters. These characters, both real and imagined, have traits.
What traits do dramatic characters have?
Michelle said "Evil"
Barry said "Good"
Which is cool because I think I could learn the basis of acting in 10 lessons.
I don't want to be an actor, I want to write scripts. So in order to do that I need to learn the language actors use to interpret their craft.
Today she taught us about stage positioning by verbally directing us around the room into different dramatic positions.
The different postures that we learned about are 
(start M. Nelson)
Superior - person in charge, thought of as mattering more. 
Inferior - person not in charge - thought of as mattering less
Ms Nemo said that ..."The head height of an actor is called a level.
(ex standing, sitting, fall back bowing)" and that there are different ways a person might position their body.
profile right, profile left and full front."
Level - head height of actor 
Face the audience when talking.
Don't put the paper in front of your face.

Mary Lyn Stalter: Language Arts
Learning Target: To understand how character traits influence behavior.
Lesson Notes:
All objects, places and living things have traits.
Size, shape, weight are physical traits.
A machine has traits that are designed into them.
Living beings have genetic traits.
And animals and people have character traits.
Q&A: Can Anyone tell the classroom a character trait?
Irene raised her hand and said: "Honesty
I raised my hand and said, "Compassion.
Jolene raised her hand and said, "Passion"
Karl raised his hand and said. "fairness"
Maria said, "carefulness"
Michelle said, "Intelligence"
Barry said, "Courage"
Chief said family
Jamal raised his hand and said, "wisdom" 
Little Bear said "Loyalty"
Writing Prompt: What character traits do you admire or dislike in people?
Why do you admire or dislike them
My answer:
I like people who do the right thing. 
I met a woman who was helping a wolf who was injured in an accident.
I met her at the VA building when I was getting my school physical check up.  She was singing a lullaby to the wolf when we met. 
She said that she wasn't able to take her back to Baffin Island, where the animal was injured, so I told her that she should take her wolf to the Mahigan Wildlife Refuge nearby. 
I didn't know if she would until she took her there last week. 
I live across the street from the reserve. I saw an SUV pull in and the wolf be carried in a cage, then be examined and played with by one of the reserves caretakers and then set free. I think that this lady is very courageous and compassionate.
So are the people who run the wildlife Reserve.
Mr Gonzalez's Science Notes:
Learning target. To be able to identify and describe scientific traits.
"Traits are observable characteristics of an object, living being, place or idea."
Mr Gonzalez asked "What is an "observable characteristic."
Practice: Identify three traits each of an object, living being, place or idea. Write them down in your notebook in outline form.
Brain storm cue:
Traits that make us human beings
Traits that are true for all living things
All animals
All mammals
Traits that are true for some or a few animals including humans 

Please forgive me, the author Greg Spence Wolf for sending this story ten years into the future. Tomorrow's blog by Billy Boren will be dated Tuesday, September 18, 2035. I feel like 20 years is open to more interpretation.

This ministory is based on Ms MariLyn Stalter's writing prompt
"The Earth is just a space ship, the crew is just waking up" from 09/12/25

Earth was seeded by the gronigals 200 quadrillion years ago. They sent magnetic poles that were designed to attract enough debris to form a molten core. 
This process was expected to take 500,000 years. Or one Gronigal generation. 

The hatching of Gronigal eggs required a consistent planetary temperature of -30. The crew needed to lay their eggs. That could not be achieved with conventional space vessels over that distance. At least not back then.
Magnetic poles were sent to terraform nearer planets.
The were the fastest objects that could travel that fast and travel really long distances.

And they could be cut with such precision that they in reality super computer chips that processed light, electricity, data, what ever you threw at them.

They were also designed to anchor to other magnetic poles, and then orbit them.
The temperature needed to be consistent. And magnetic poles had to be installed in order for the planet to communicate from the Ursan system.
The Gronigals became extinct from 123,345,678,987,654,321 years ago...

Editorial Note:
I decided to drop the Diary of a Geeky Kid from my blog title because it is too derivative of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Writing prompt: What are your rules?
1)  Never hit me. ( source: B Vermillion)
I heard a kid say that to another kid at a playground when he got hit, and I thought it was perfect.  
2) It pays to be nice to people. (Source TL Wolf) My Dad says that my Mom used to say that. And he said that she lived up to that. 
When I am inconsiderate to someone my Dad says, "Treat other people like you would want them to treat you.
He says most people will treat you better if you treat them well.
Chief said, "Watch where you are going."

Ms Stalter said, "That is good advice."

Language Arts with Ms Stalter
Learning Target: 
Think about your future.
Ms Stalter's writing prompts: 
What do you want to do for a career?
What kind of work do you want to do?
How much money do you want to make?
What lifestyle do you want to live?
Where do you want to live?
Do you want to have a family and or children?
And what are you willing to do to get that career?
And how will these factors affect your career choices.
I want to be a writer when I grow up.
I write every day. I doodle cartoons too. 
Right now, for practice, I am writing a reference based on what my teachers are teaching me. 
I am going to call it, "How to Survive Fifth Grade." or "What I learned in School" +39
I haven't decided exactly what to call it yet.
Personal journal 9/11/15
Each day our teachers are required to post the learning target of each lesson on the board. We are supposed to write the learning target on the back of each page followed by the teachers board notes.
 The details from their lectures are optional.
This helps me get straight A's. 
Writing what I am learning helps me get through my classes, and sharpens my intellect.  But what I really want to be when I grow up is a science fiction writer. 
Science Class 12:25 PM
Mr. François Gonzalez
 "My name is Mr Gonzalez. Since our school of three hundred students is very small I will be teaching two classes here,  both gym and science."
I raised my hand at that point and Mr Gonzalez looked at me and said that we could ask questions after he was done with his lecture. "But Mr G, Principal Ho said in our opening day assembly, that there are "only 313 children in our school."
Mr Gonzalez then told me to stand in the hallway. I then told him that wasn't fair. I was simply stating a fact. Mr Gonzalez then said that I would be walking laps during recess. 
I told him that wasn't fair either.
He said to me, "Billy, this conversation is not fair to the other students. I believe that there is no reason any student need to be told more than once my expectations of them. The rules are posted on the wall."
"Well Mr Gonzalez, what should we expect from you. Can we have expectations of you. Can we be sure that ..."
Mr Gonzalez cut me off and said, "Billy, this is a science lab, there are things in this lab that could hurt you if you do not follow my instructions about safety we could have accidents. Your attention to detail is admirable, and hopefully shows that you will remember the safety instructions I've given you as well as you remember the number 313. You are now going to be walking two laps and if you speak up again, I will call your parents and the office."
I then blurted out, "I only have a Dad."
He responded by saying, "Okay, and..."
"You said parents Mr Gonzalez. You used the plural"
    Mr Gonzalez then took his cell phone out of his pocket and dialed the office. He then told the secretary, Mr Johnson, that I will be reporting to the office tomorrow at recess. after I walk my laps."
    I didn't really say those things, I like school and don't want to get into trouble, but when he said that we only had 300 students, I did want to correct him. I'll just use Mrs Ho's quote for my reference.
In reality he then plugged his phone into an audio cable, and said over the class intercom, 
"I am both the  gym teacher and the science teacher. I love science and sports, which makes me a smart jock."
Martina (Garcia Marvelosa) giggled. Everyone looked at her aghast. But Mr Gonzalez said, "I made a joke and one person got it. I made fun of myself. If you are going to make fun of someone, make it yourself." If you are going to make fun of somebody else, don't. Stop yourself before the words leave your lips."
If you make someone else in this classroom, there will be no warning, there will be immediate consequences.
He then added, "I am going to be very strict, consistent in my strictness and I am going to make my expectations clear, especially when they are not being met. If you are not sure of what my classroom expectations are, check the posters I have posted. Or memorize them as I repeat them  You may get tired of hearing my expectations repeated, then again you might exceed them, and earn my praise instead. You may even  earn my trust. If you earn my trust, and maintain it, you may gain more independence or at least won't hear so much from me. Think about it."
books I read and other reliable sources. I give credit to all my sources. I take notes on what the teachers say. I also verify their statements on the internet. On the facing page I write my own summary based on their presentations.

Date: Wednesday, September 10, 2025 
Name: Billy Boren         
Classroom teacher: Mary Lynn Stalter
Learning Target: Wake up the Brain from Summer
Ms Stalter's Chalk Board Notes:
Every morning we will start with a writing prompt to wake up our brains. 
The first day of school is brainstorming day. 
Write as much as you can about yourself on a single page of your notebook. 
My Brainstorm:
My birth name is William Roberto Boren
But everybody calls me Billy.
I am named after my maternal grandfather Roberto Rodriguez Clemente 
I was born at the hospital at Joint Base Lewis McChord in Washington State, near Tacoma on 9.11.2014.
My Mom Juliana Elizabeth Clemente Boren died in childbirth, so I never met her.
My Dad's name is John Benjamin Boren (Jack). He's a WWIII vet. He was drafted in 2119, shortly after former President Ted Cruz invaded Iraq.
I am 10 years old, for one more day. 
I have lived in Tacoma, WA, Pheonix, AR and Seattle, WA. and now Sicily AL.
 Bordering the Mahigan Indian Reservation. 
My favorite foods are Strawberries, pizza and spaghetti.
I love to write poetry, memorize songs, play piano keyboard and recite movie dialogue.
My favorite genre is science fiction in all its forms, novels, comic books,  movies, web shows and chapter games, especially the ones where you change the parameters and get different endings.
I love animals and nature too. I am more of a dog person than a cat person, but I like all animals. 
I like to walk in the woods and take pictures of plants and then look them up on the internet to identify them.
I am allergic to airborne chemicals like air fresheners, perfumes, scented cleaners and  ammonia, They give me headaches and burn my throat.
The products that give me sore throats are Clorox and Lysol Wipes. I suspect that it is the ammonium chloride in them.
