My Experience in the Weaving Department by Daniel N.

Hello my name is Daniel and I’m going to be writing about my experience in the Weaving Department. My instructor’s name is Bailey and she has taught me how to work with the nifty knitters to make scarfs and headbands. We make towels using a loom. The products the Weaving dept produces are made of fibers woven together. We learn lessons on how to weave the fabric together to make products that serve a useful function in the house.  The towels could be used for washing your hands or for decoration on the wall. Scarfs prevent you from getting cold and they are an attractive fashion accessory.

It was initially very hard to learn weaving, but I persisted at it and it became easier with time. Learning the skill of weaving has shown me that if you set your mind to something you can do it .

I felt proud when I learned a difficult skill.

Hawaiian Vacation By Sonja

Image result for hawaiian waterfall

Last week I went on vacation to Honolulu Hawaii a beautiful island paradise. We went on many hikes through muddy jungle terrain; one of my favorite hikes was a hike to a waterfall going down the cliff side through small ponds I took a sip from the water and got soaked in the progress it was really tasty water. Also I went to a place called the Polynesian Cultural Center learned about the many different islanders that occupy other pacific islands; saw a canoe show depicting the stories of the islands and how they were formed. Finally I got to tour a massive battleship called The USS Missouri where japan surrender to america ending WW2. Hawaii was an amazing place to visit and can’t wait to go back again.
