IBSH Flea Market

By: Katelyn

On Wednesday, March 18, IBSH hosted its annual flea market because of the 32nd school anniversary. In fact, IBSH hosts a flea market every year to honor the school during its anniversary, making students from all classes work hard to finish in time for the event. The flea market took place at the IBSH quadrangle and the hallway that leads to the gym. There were performances in the gym, including dances, cheer leading, and lots of other hosted activities. Out in the quadrangle, kids from first to sixth grade were advertising games and selling toys, food, and including other merchandise. The middle school and high school kids set up their booths in the hallway to the gym, where there was more noise and students with their parents, who tried to buy some tasty goods.

“The flea market was awesome, and I got to hear my friend Alo scream for the first time.” says Mary, a sixth grader from IBSH. Kelly, another kid from sixth grade, says “The weather was burning hot! however that didn’t ruin all of the flea market fun.” Most students thought that the flea market was very amusing, and very enjoyable. “I can’t believe we earned so much money! I thought that our things weren’t good enough, that would cause in no one coming to buy them,” says another sixth grader. The 6A class earned about 8000 NT during the flea market by selling Styrofoam airplanes, pizza from Costco, frozen juice, and books. The pizza sold out in minutes. Also, parents came and bought books for their children, and students of all ages came and bought the airplanes. The frozen juice soon ran out just like the pizza. In the end, all of the 6A students agreed that selling goods at the flea market was a good learning experience for all of them.

Prince of Fools has very descriptive vocabulary. Each words gives a very precise description of what is going, and the reader can easily identify what is going on. However, it leaves rooms for imagination too! The words create a picture of the setting and overall events, yet it depends on the reader to work out the details.

3-HiFive   You will definitely how Prince of Fools has a creative story and great details in the plot. Nowadays, not many books out there include an actual princess being rescued! And even so the book is a bit confusing, the plot itself explains the story to the reader even if he doesn’t understand it.
