Taking part in the 2015 Blogging Challenge was a nice experience. There was always something new to do each week along with learning something new. I got to learn how to use Compfight, I learned how to make an avatar, I also learned a lot of new things from other people’s blogs. I liked visiting blogs because in about a week or two I had a response. My favorite Blogging Challenge was where we got to write a little about ourselves and then we got to make an avatar. I thought it was a nice way to express myself, and for everyone on edublogs to get to know me. This experience is one I will never forget. Hopefully I will get to use the skills I learned from the Blogging Challenge and use them again some day. Here is the link to my favorite post. Also, my class and I got nominated for Best Class Blog and Best Group Blog. Thanks for everyone who nominated us and don’t forget to vote here for Shirley’s 6th Grade Class.
I will be talking about America’s favorite foods.
The chart below tells you what America’s favorite foods are. The chart is broken up into categories so it’s more organized. I did that so you could see it better and you could see the most popular one and the least popular one.
For junk food Pizza is the favorite, followed by Hamburgers, French fries, Chicken tenders and Ice cream.
|Chicken is the best||Mozzarella is the best||Potatoes are the best||Orange is the best|
|Beef is second||Cheddar is second||Tomatoes are second||Apples are second|
|Pork is third||Other cheeses are third||Onions are third||Bananas are third|
|Cream and Neufchatel is fourth||Head Lettuce is forth||Grapes are forth|
|Provolone and Swiss are tied.||Sweet Corn is fifth||Water melon is fifth|
|Romaine and leaf lettuce are number six||Strawberries are sixth|
|Chile Peppers are last.||Peaches and Nectarines are 7th|
Blogging Challenge Week #1
Activity 1 Well I’m definitely a lot more brave online, because in real life I wouldn’t have the guts to fight other people and risk dying when I’m playing video games. Apart from that, I think I’m a lot cooler virtually than I am in real life because I can do a lot of things in game than I can in real life.
I chose this Avatar because it looks like me and I chose to wear the goggles because I have a pair that look exactly like that. I really want my avatar on almost everything to look like me. I also put a computer in because I’m on the computer a lot.
Hello my name is Adam and I was born on March 17 which is St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t remember my experiences as a baby at all. My family members are Azeddine, Isabella, Victoria and Mary. I have 2 pets, Lilly (the dog) and Kat (the cat). My sisters are currently both in college in the same state. I like to play a lot of video games, and I think I’m a pretty good player. I’m also an aspiring actor (that was a hint to cast me as the lead in all the plays ha ha) I’ve been at my school for 6 years and I’ll probably stay through high school. I also play three sports Basketball, Soccer and American Football (but I had to quit football, my mom being a Neurological Health Provider and all) I am definitely looking forward to having Iced Tea and Gatorade in high school even though I thought I could have it this year, I can wait.
Activity 1: Is my real-life presence different from my online presence?
I don’t really have much of a presence online . . . yesterday was the first time I have ever commented on anything online, and this is the first time I have ever blogged or anything. I don’t really post or comment on much. The most I really do is share pictures of cute bears and messages of conservation and wildlife with the five or so people in my circles on google plus. I do have a youtube account, but I have never uploaded, commented on, or even liked anything. I have subscribed to a couple people though, and even that was a big step for me. It’s not that I’m don’t know how to use the internet or anything. I spend a good amount of time online, but I just don’t really make my presence known–the opposite of how I am in real life. When I see one of my friends, I say hi or something. In conclusion, my online presence is virtually nonexistent and therefore is undeniably different from my real life presence.
Activity 2: Avatars!
Chibi maker!!! I chose this avatar because (a) it is chibi and chibi is AMAZING, (b) it looks like me and (c) that hat is just cool. It looks just like the Harry Potter sorting hat Here is the link to the site.
Activity 3: Who am I?
My name is Zoë and I love cats, cookies, and film making. I am constantly coming up with characters and ideas for movies and I have recently finished the first draft of a 60 page screenplay. I love chibi (which is sort of like this adorable type of anime) and I use it constantly. I am pescetarian (type of vegetarian that can eat seafood) because I love sheep, cows, goats, chickens, and pigs. I love many more animals, but listing all of them would take a while. My eyes are brown and so is my water bottle. My cats are amazing.
Activity 1: Hi my name is Yasmeen, and I like to be myself online and offline. I choose to be myself in both worlds because I want people to know the real me. I post pictures of myself, things I make, see, and go to. If I write a comment it’s usually really nice. When I first got my Instagram account I would post like crazy but now I don’t post that often so I have learned how to limit my use on Instagram. Well that is how I am different from offline to online!
Activity 2: I chose bitmoji . This avatar I think really describes me like I sometimes wear lipstick so I thought that would be a nice feature. I really liked my avatar because I almost have the same color shirt. I chose “Hi” because I thought it would be a way to greet people when they see my avatar.
About Me: My name is Yasmeen, I am 11 years old. I am in 6th grade, I have a brother Abdul and live with my mom and dad. Swimming and basketball define who I am, competitive. I also really like fashion, clothes, makeup and things like that. I have a BFF who is Emma and she swims with me. I also have other BFF’s too like Olivia,Violet, Joanie, Annie, Olive, Ryanne, Maya, Eden, Ect. I also Love to draw and bake, and those are 2 more of my main hobbies. Well now that you know how awesome I am, I think we’re done here!
I tried to search myself on Google, but Nothing came up. What I did find was a picture of Leonardo Dicaprio, No idea why his pitcture came up. I also found some cooking utensils and a bunch of other people i never met before. I Googled my sister and some of her drawings came up. I think she had a digital footprint because she uses social media. I never use any social medias. I hope at the end of the year I will have a digital footprint.
This is my avatar. It looks kind of like me. I was wearing red pants and a blue shirt when I made this so, thats why it has red pants and a blue shirt. I named him Julian JR. He is almost always happy, except when he gets homework. He likes skiing, playing video games and playing soccer. He also has a Youtube channel that he shares with a few friends. His favorite color is yellow. He likes Minecraft and thats why he is made out of blocks.
Hi! I am Mira. Do you want to know what it is like in a day like mine? I wake up very early, around 6:30 then I get dressed and have breakfast. I leave my house and get to school around 8:00 a.m. When I get to school I go to my classes. Then after a long day of school I go home and hang out with my friend’s and family . My sister and I also love playing with our dogs. Then my parents come home around 6:00 p.m. and all four of us have dinner. Sometimes we get take-out and sometimes my parents make something at home. Then my family and I watch TV. We like to watch the Food Network and the Voice. Then after that, I go to bed around 9:00. Well I hope you liked learning about my day!
Wait a minute, I forgot some things that I like to do and some activities I do after school! I love singing, so one day I go to singing after school and also on Tuesdays and Wednesdays I play soccer after school. The last thing I do after school is that my sister and I are in a club at our farm and we do fundraisers and we play games and talk. Before I get to any of those activities, I have to drive for almost an hour to get to school and back. On the drive to and from school my sister and I talk and listen to music and it is usually really fun.
The last thing I want to tell you about is the technology at my school. Everybody has a computer and we use them for most of our school work. I like how we get to use computers for most things instead of writing by hand the whole time. We also have smart boards which are really cool. I love all the technology and how we get to use it everyday it is great. I hoped you liked learning about a day in the life of me!
In the morning, I usually get up at 6 o’clock and have about 45 minutes before I leave to catch the bus at 6:45. My dad drives me to my stop and I have my puppy on my lap. I get there and get out, grab my stuff and hop on the bus with my sister. It takes about an hour and a half to get to school. When I get to school, I take my sister to her classroom and walk to the learning commons to say hi to my friends.
In the middle school, we use our computers for almost everything, and I guess tha’ts cool, but maybe one improvement could be using computers less and maybe other thing more. I’m just saying that it would be nice…… but no one would agree with me.
Our school does not have to wear uniforms which is soooo good. I would die if we had to. I don’t think there’s anything you can’t wear, Shirts with stuff on them, any type of pants, it’s really nice being able to wear whatever you want. At my old school you had to wear a blank shirt and black pants, so no hats, no hoods no nothing.
History of Poughkeepsie:
I live in the city of Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie was founded in 1683. It started as a lumber and grain milling center. There is a lot of history in Poughkeepsie. Now Poughkeepsie is well known for Vassar and Marist Colleges. My house was built in 1900 and it is now 113 years old. I live across the street from the Poughkeepsie Tennis Club, which was built in 1858. Nice places to visit are the Walkway Over the Hudson and the state parks. Poughkeepsie is a great place to visit.
