pride in myself! (blogging challenge)

May6

For this student blogging challenge meme we have to talk about something that has made us proud! Check out the challenge for yourself at http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/05/01/pride-in-myself-meme/!

Well I’m mostly proud of how I do in sports! I love basketball and track! I love being able to travel to different towns to compete. The feeling of being on a track or a court just makes me feel very happy, unless I make a mistake! But nobody is perfect, and making mistakes is just a part of life. We had a track meet just yesterday! Im very proud of how I competed and also how my   4 by 4 team did!

In our last paragraph we are supposed to tag people so they can leave comments:

iPad Apps(:

April1

apple_ipad_3gNext week in our challenge class we get to have our own iPads for a whole week! We will be the first ones to use them so we get to decide what educational games go on them! There are a lot of choices of apps for iPads on iTunes, which makes it kind of hard to choose. The top ten educational games I would pick are:

10 ) Stack the States

  • Stack the States is a game where they show you a bunch of states at the same time and ask you to pick the right state! The more states you get correct, the higher your scotre.

9 ) Illusions

  • Illusions isn’t really a game it’s more where they show you a picture, and have to think about it and figure out what it looks like. Mostly these pictures will have to images in one so its teaching to look at things with two perspectives instead of just one.

8 ) Flashcardlet

  • Flashcardlet is an app  that lets you make flash cards, and then helps you study them.

7 ) Mad Math

  • Mad Math is a game where you can pick what kind of math you want, how many questions you want, and then they flash up on the screen and depending on how hard the question is you get more or less time.

6 ) ESPN Spelling Bee

  • This is game that you get asked to spell words, just like a real spelling bee.

5 ) Math Bingo

  • In Math Bingo you try and get a bingo while solving math problems.

4 ) Math Merge

  • In this game you try and merge numbers and answers together in the right bubble.

3 ) Life

  • In the game Life you have a few choices of life to make like you job, house, college or not, etc…

2 ) Phase 10 Masters

  • This a game where you have 10 cards and 10 phases to get through. You have to pace yourself so you dont use your good hand with a bad phase.

1 ) Brain Challenge 2

  • This games tells you how much of your brain you use, and how stressed you are.

These are the top ten games I would put on my iPad!

favorite movie(:

March25

My favorite movie is by far Forrest Gump! That movie makes me laugh every single time I watch it, even though I already know what is coming. My favorite part of Forrest Gump is when Forrest  is in the hospital for “wounding his butt.” Also there is so many memorable quotes in that movie! A few of my favorites are “Momma always said life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” Another favorite is when Forrest and Lieutenant Dan are talking about legs(which Dan does not have) It goes something like this:

Forrest Gump: Lieutenant Dan, what are you doing here?
Lieutenant Dan: I’m here to try out my sea legs.
Forrest Gump: But you ain’t got no legs, Lieutenant Dan.
Lieutenant Dan: Yes… yes, I know that. You wrote me a letter, you idiot!

Well thats it about my favorite movie!

my digital footprint(:

March18

For the second blogging challenge we are supposed to find our digital footprint!

The first question asks “What sites have you joined?”

  • I have joined Edmodo, Facebook, Gmail, Voki, MixPod, and obviously Edublogs,!

Second question asks “How much information did you give them when you joined?”

  • I basically just gave them all the required information.

Next question asks “Have you filled in more than the *asterisk questions?”

  • I usually try and just fill in the asterisk questions, but I’m sure at some websites i have filled out more!

The next part of the challenge was to google your name and see what came up!

The next two questions ask “What did you find?” and “Are you on the web for sports teams, named in newspapers and where else?”

  • I found about half a page all about me. Every single entry, but one, was for sports(mostly track)! There was one entry where my mom had mentioned my name for her class reunion!

The final question asks “How many cookies or footprints are you leaving behind?”

  • Well, I dont think that I am leaving very many footprints out there.

SPENT! A Life Like Game!

March4

Today on class we played a game called SPENT. It is a game where you have to try and survive on a low income for 30 days. On my first try I barely made it to the end of the month. I only had around 8 dollars left! I applied for the warehouse stacker, and got the job. To do this, I had to put my pet to sleep, miss my grandfathers funeral, etc…!

Play It: http://playspent.org/

posting as Justin Bieber(:

February25

Well, first of all just so everyone knows! I do not really like Justin Bieber, I’m just posting as him!

As I’m sure everyone knows, I have starred in the television show, CSI. In CSI I play as a kid named Jason McCann who is a troubled teen that is faced with a very hard decision regarding his only brother.  Also Jason’s a member of a “radical political organization that may have been involved with a bombing at a police funeral.” Then on the CSI episode that aired on February 18th, Jason is acting in self-defense and fires at the police. The police (as they should) return fire (with much better aim then that of what I had) and the bullets (six of them) enter right in my chest! So, that results in Jason McCAnn’s death! Also the same week I did the unthinkable! I had to work up a lot of courage to do this one, but i did it. On February 21st I cut my hair! Thats right, no more “famous Bieber hair flick.” Well, that pretty much sums up my week!

Me playing Jason McCann right before I get shot!

brain teaser(:

February18

You’re in a mansion and the power’s out. You see a green door and a pink door. Pick one (it doesn’t matter which.) Now you see a yellow door and a orange door. Pick one (again, it doesn’t matter which you pick). Now you see a door with a golden handle and a door with a silver handle. Pick one. You finally come to some signs on three doors. One says “Death from drowning,” another says “Death from machine guns,” and the last one says “Death from electric chair.” Then you see a big sign off to the side that says “Or stay in the mansion and starve to death.” What do you choose and still live?

I found this at http://www.trickyriddles.com/riddle/3229-Power-Outage!

man builds 35-foot snowman!

February10

A New-York man beats his own record of the worlds biggest snowman. His name is Vern Scoville. Vern lives the Jefferson County town of Champion. He started building large snowmen a few years ago as fun for his family. Last year his snowman topped at 25 feet!

This year the snowman was a world record of 35 feet! The snowman uses three black car tires for buttons, an orange and white traffic cone for a nose and part of an old pool for a top hat. It is a local attraction for little kids who love to get there picture taken by it!snowman_02-01-11
