Sam’s Story

I am going to be talking about my Frances Dowell story.  Frances Dowell is a author and we have been on calls with her because are learning from her how to  write a story and what goes into making a story. Some things that she said that were important for writing a story that I put in my story was adding a lot of important details.  For example, in the photo i include details about Muhammad’s life.

There was a week when me and my classmates were remote for a week and for one of the Language Arts calls we were supposed to get on a call with some of my classmates and  classmates told other classmates what needs to be fix in their or my story. When  I did editing sessions with my classmates they told me to fix  sentences that didn’t make sense.

I learned from Frances  Dowell and my friends there can be so much that goes into making a story and it can take months up to years. When Frances Dowell reads all of my story I want to hear from her that it is really good, entertaining and fun to read.  I feel achieved, proud of myself, good about myself about writing a whole story.

I don’t really know if I will write more stories, but if it is a class assignment to write a story I’ll do it. My time with Frances Dowell was great because I got to learn how to write a story and I had a fun time doing it. At the beginning when I had to think of a story and what the story would include, it was difficult but when I got passed that it became easier and easier. This is my first time writing a story and I feel achieved and proud of my self.

Biography

Window or Mirror?


FROM SORA  and the book is called The Super Bowl.  Matt Doeden is the author.

Hey people of the world, I’m back.  So I am going to be talking about what a mirror and a window is and if my book that I’m reading on Sora is a window or mirror.  We are not talking about a window in your house and a mirror in your bathroom.  A window is a book written about a completely different setting and story compared to your own.  A mirror is a book or story that relates to you in a way,  it can be one really tiny thing about yourself.

This book is a mirror to me because this book talks about football. I really like football and I play outside with my dad a lot.  Plus, because this book is called The Super Bowl and if anyone doesn’t know what a super bowl is it is the last game of the NFL  season.  Two teams play from NFC vs The AFC and whoever wins gets a super bowl ring and they bring the Lombardi trophy with their team back to wherever they live.  Anyway, I think the super bowl relates to me because I really like watching super bowl because it is really entertaining and I like to see if there is a big comeback.  There was a big comeback.

The book is about every super bowl that has happened including big times plays, big catches, game winning field goals or game winning touchdowns. I read the book and there was a huge comeback in super bowl 51. The Falcons were playing the Patriots.  So it was the 3rd quarter and the Falcons were beating the Patriots 28-3 plus Julian Edelman made a historic catch and Julio Jones did.  The Patriots came back 28-3 in the 2nd half and the game went to overtime and that’s the first time ever and the Patriots scored and won and that’s the biggest comeback ever in super bowl history.

If you like sports and crazy catches, or big sport comebacks you can download Sora from the Apple store and search  for the book The Super Bowl. It will pop up and you can read it.

 

 

My Daily Habit

Hey guys so today I am doing another blog post!!!! I’m going to be talking about my daily habit.  A daily habit  something you do every day and it is fun for you.  My daily habit is just to go outside and run to my country club and back to my house or to run around my neighborhood and back to my house. I’m doing this habit for the whole February and when it is March I can choose a different daily habit or switch to another daily habit.  I usually run with my dad and it takes 45 minutes whether  I visit my grandpa and gramma’s house (they live like three minutes away). That’s all for now, thank you for stopping by and reading!!!!

What Kind Of Punctuation Mark Am I?

I’m a period because I like to end conversations a lot. Whenever I am watching a big game and someone is annoying me or talking to me and I am trying to watch the game, it really gets on me and I end the conversation.  Like if I am on a call with my friend and I just want to talk to him and my brothers come in and I say ‘ get out of my room’ and they don’t, that really annoys me and then I force them out of the room and I end the conversation. If I am getting in trouble with my dad or mom I would wish I could end it all and leave them so I don’t get in trouble and then I would end the conversation.

Daily Habits

Hey guys, I’m back with another blog and today I will be talking about my daily habits. 1st, so I said I will play football outside for 7 days straight but I changed mind because my dad works every day in the week. The only days he can play with me are on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and the days  when he doesn’t have to work or when I don’t have school.  I changed mind to playing basketball. It has been going well. The first thing that stinks is that it is freezing cold outside.  I set a timer for like 20 minutes and when it goes off I’m done . (for that day)

Before I did all of these daily habits I did planking with my Language Arts class and we planked from November to December.  It was really hard for me when we got up to like 2 minutes and higher because I can’t hold a plank or sit in a really uncomfortable position for like 3 minutes. The longest plank my class did was for like 3 minutes and 40 seconds before winter break.

 

My Comic

So this is my wisdom tale. It is called The Talkative Turtle. The moral is if you annoy people and get on their nerves they will leave.  A wisdom tale is basically a really short story.  It basically talks about what happened in that country. The Talkative Turtle is from India. I chose this wisdom tale because I liked the story’s summary and what it talked about.

I created a comic about The Talkative Turtle and I basically had to draw 4 photos, and what they were talking about. I basically read the story and I drew the first drawing based on where it was in the  story. I found the second drawing in the middle of the story. I found the third drawing when it was getting to the end. I found the fourth drawing at the end.

 

Something That Interests Me

Hi guys, so I will be talking about something that interests me. There
are a lot of things that interest me including baseball, basketball, and video games.  The first thing that interests me is if there is like a big trade in the  NFL or the  NBA because last year there was a player called Deandre Hopkins and he was on the Houston Texans.  He got traded to the Arizona Cardinals for David Johnson who was a running back for the Cardinals.  He is now on the Texans and he never plays.  What shocked me the most was that why do you trade someone really good for someone not really good?  Another thing that interests me ( it’s sad) when Kobe Bryant died because I was playing video games and my dad and brother were downstairs watching the pro bowl and the news interrupted the game.  I went downstairs to tell my dad what I wanted for lunch and the news person said Kobe Bryant died and his 13 year old daughter, 9 passengers and the pilot in Calabasas, California. I was shocked he was only 41 years old.  There is a like big screen at the pro bowl game and it said on there  when he was born to when he died and a picture of him and Gigi at a Lakers game. That’s all from me.

My Achievements And Lessons During Remote Week

When I was doing remote week I had a really fun time because I like doing remote because I get to be at my house and do work. I had a lot of achievements and lessons. My first achievement was finishing all of my work on time. One of the lessons I learned was if you’re at your house and not at school and it is on a school day it’s a school day not a lazy day. Another achievement I had was getting on my calls when I was supposed to. I think I did a really good job but for my  first class math I was late by like 5 minutes on 1 call. I listened to all of my teachers if we had a small groups. I would listen who was in my small group. I just like being remote because I can sleep later than I am supposed to because if I am going to school I have to wake up really early like 6:30 am early. But the thing that I dislike about being remote is I don’t get to see my friends.  But if I am remote I could maybe even play video games on a school day and I never get to do that. My favorite lesson when the whole school was remote was in Language Arts, we shared our Frances Dowell stories and got feedback. I am very thankful that I was in a group with my friends because they gave me really good feedback.  The book I am reading is Who Was Kobe Bryant. I am reading this book on Sora. This book is really in my heart because Kobe Bryant was one of my favorite basketball players ever. The reason I said was because on January 26, 2020 he died in a plane crash with his daughter and nine other people. I mourned his loss and everyone else did. When I read about this book and it talked about on January 26, 2020 he died, I am really sad. So that’s all from thanks bye.

 

 

 

 

 

 

College Basketball During COVID 19


Hey guys, I’m back at it again but we’re talking COVID and college basketball.  I’m a huge Duke  fan. My grandfather knows the legendary Coach K and he has lunches with him. So this is in my opinion.

I don’t think there should be a college basketball season this year.  One reason is because of COVID.  Another reason is because Gonzaga and Baylor were supposed to play at Baylor and it got canceled because some players on Gonzaga got COVID .  Gonzaga is number 1 in the whole country and Baylor is number 2 in the whole country. I don’t know how they are so good. Gonzaga canceled 4 of their upcoming games. What shocks me the most is that Duke men’s basketball has no positive tests and that’s impressive. I think Duke is  horrible. They are bad on offense and they are kind of good on defense but they lost by 15 points at home vs Illinois. I think this is why Duke hasn’t done well.

So you know how there are no fans allowed to the games?  Well, Coach K’s wife is the only person. Duke doesn’t have the crowd, especially the Cameron crazies.  UNC is not good because they were coming back and they were losing by 1 point and Luke Garza had 12 points and he averages like 25 or higher in the FIRST HALF.  But the reason I think UNC lost is because Iowa can shoot three pointers. I mean they can shoot.  Duke is going to be good next year. They are going to have the number 3 recruit named Paolo Banchero who is from Italy and the number six recruit Aj Griffin. There is another recruit Duke is trying to get and his name is  Patrick Baldwin Jr. He is the 2 recruit and  he is deciding on Milwaukee or Duke. The  reason I say Milwaukee because his dad is the coach of the basketball team. The reason he might go to Duke is because Coach K is the best coach ever in college basketball and he has the most wins in college basketball as a  coach. I think there shouldn’t be a college basketball season this year because  almost every team is getting COVID and  teams have to postpone the game or even cancel the  game.
