  19. Hi Mr.Mrtz my name is Maria Paula Sanchez from 6a here is my reflective log:
    Not only men can invent things women can too, to invent things you have to solve a problem so here are somo women who invent things like Mary Anderson who invent the wildshield wipers, her problem was that she saw that people can not see when the snow or the rain cover the windshield so they had to get them heads out of the car to see what was happening and this produce a lot of accidents. Margaret E. Knight who invent the paper bags, her problem was that when she go shopping to the supermarket she had to use baskets and that was uncomfortable so with the paper bags it was easlier to transport their food to one place to another. Becky Schroeder who invent the paper glowed, her problem was that when she was with her mother in the car she couldn`t see her homework in the dark so she invented the paper glowed to see in anyplace. Alexia Abernathy who invents the no-spill feeding bowl, her problem was that her brother always when he eats cereal he drips it out of the plate so she invents this big plate with another form so little children don`t dip them food.

  20. Hi mr.mrtz: this is my reflection log….
    Women are very ingenious and creative to create new things, not only men can do this. This story let you know that it doesn’t matter the age you are, it only depend in how long is your imagination and in how is your idea.
    This story is mainly about some women’s who make some inventions that nowadays are very useful in the whole world. Every invention is based on a single problem where this fabulous women’s try to find the solution and finally they achieve them.
    In this story we found Mary Anderson who created the windshield wipers, Margaret E. Knight who created the paper bags, Becky Schroeder who invented the paper glowed and Alexia Abernathy who invent the no-spill feeding bowl. For me, the most important and useful invention was the windshield wipers (Mary Anderson) because this invention can prevent accidents and deaths and it can save life’s and the other ones satisfied our necessities so are not too important as the Anderson´s invention.

  23. Hi Mr. Mrtz,

    This story talks about the success of women all over the world in history. Women have invented many useful and necessary things that are daily used today. It particularly mentions some women who have invented the most important objects in history which are the flat-bottomed paper bag, special shampoo, the windshield wiper, the “non-spill” bowl, the glow sheet and liquid paper. These inventions succeeded and made life much more easier today. Each of these inventions were created from a problem and the inventors had a variety of ages. The inventors are Mary Anderson who invented the windshield wiper, Margaret E. Knight who invented the flat-bottomed paper bag, Becky Shroeder who invented the glow sheet, Alexia Abernathy who created the “non-spill” bowl, Madame C.J who invented the special shampoo and last but not least Bette Nesmith Graham who created white out or “liquid paper”. These women have made a big change in history and have shown that women all over the world are important and can make a difference.

  24. Hi Mr.Mrtz
    My name is Valeria Guevara from 6c and this is my book report of “Girls think of everything”

    “Girls think of everything” is a story that talks about the great inventions that women, over the years have created with persistence and ingenuity, which we use in daily life, providing solutions to various problems in their lives. Madam C.J. Walker, Mary Anderson, Margaret E. Knight, Becky Schroeder and Alexia Abernathy also are found in this wonderful book, because of their creative inventions that have made easier and comfortable daily life for people around the world. Some important inventions of these women are the windshield wiper, shampoo, paper bags, between others.
    This story leaves us the lesson that; women, anyway we are also very important in the world, we are creative and ingenious and also that there are never any limits for the imagination.

    • Hi Mr.Mrtz I am Manuela Delgado from 6B an this is my book report of “My side of the mountain“

      All this inventions are saying that women’s also make inventions that now a days are useful for men and women sow in this edition i am going to tell you some women inventions:

      Madam C.J. Walker: Prove that a product she make for her hair was useful because she shows as a picture of her after and other before and the change is very big.

      Mary Anderson: Create the windshield wiper that was for cleaning the window of the street train and she said is for save lives because if the driver doesn’t saw it could crash with other car.

      Margaret E. Knight: Create the felt-bottomed paper bag that now a days is useful for carry better the things and to help the environment.

      Becky Schroeder: She create the glow sheet that was a paper that lights one in the paper you are writting and no disgusting light in all parts that you don’t need.

      Alexia Abernathy: Create the no-spill bowl that it is awful because if you are walking you could use this and nothing is going to felt in the floor only is going to felt in the bowl.

      My conclusion is the no only mens create useful and creative things that women’s also do that because we are more intelligent.

      Thank you.

    In this story, Victor chose a class of French. But, Victor likes Teresa… and Teresa is in the same french class as Victor!
    Victor makes many embarrassment things in front of Teresa, such as:
    1. Teresa said: ‘’ Hi Victor’’ and Victor said: ‘’ yeah, that’s me’’ (you shouldn´t say that in front of the girl that you like because you will look embarrass)
    2. In the English class: ‘’ Yes, now somebody give me an example of a person’’ the teacher said ‘’– you Victor Rodriguez’’ ‘’ Teresa’’ Victor said. ‘’Correct’’ Mr. Lucas said. ‘’Now provide me a place.’’ ‘’ Teresa´s house with a kitchen full of big brothers’’ (Is obvious that he likes Teresa and the other girls and Teresa noticed)

  29. Hi mr.rtz here is my summary of “seventh grade”
    This story talks about the beginning of a new school year a boy called Victor that is in love of a girl called Teresa but Victor is too shy to talk with Teresa so he want to impress her sayng that he can talk in french but he cant so basely that story tell of how boys and girls make to impress.

  30. Hi Mr. Mrtz,
    My name is Isabella Napodano from 6C and here’s the summary of 7th grade by Gary Soto:

    Victor (the main character) is a 7th grade student who sets many goals for himself on the 1st day of school. His main goal is to be Teresa’s boyfriend. Every time he tries to accomplish this he embarrasses himself in front of Teresa. In French class he pretends to speak French when he really couldn’t so when Mr. Bueller asked him to say something in French Victor invented a sentence but luckily the teacher had no comment so nobody knew that Victor didn’t actually speak French. Teresa isn’t interested in Victor’s attempts to impress her, she likes Victor for who he really is. This story leaves an important moral which is to always be yourself because if you don’t do this you’re tricking yourself and people should accept you for who you really are, not for who you’re trying to be.
