iAM video

Three things I learned while we were doing the iAM videos are, how to use the new version of iMovie, how to layer sounds and pictures and videos in iMovie, and how to write a story board. Im really glad that my teachers assigned this project. It was a lot of fun.

Dot Day

Today was Dot Day. Dot Day is about a book that was written by Peter Renolds. It explains that if you try and believe in yourself, you will succeed. In one of my other classes, we were learning about thinking about your dreams and believing that you will achieve them and then they will be achieved if you try your best. Dot, the book, is a very good book because  it teaches you to try your best and it will be good enough. If you try your best, you will succeed.

An Unforgettable Day At School

Have you ever had one of those days at school that seem to just stick in your mind forever? Everyone does. Whether they are good memories or bad, you have at least one. Today, I will be telling you about one that I remember quite clearly from about three years ago. I will be telling you about my first volleyball practice.
When I was in the 4th grade all the girls got a note on their desks about volleyball practice starting soon. I brought the note home even though I really didn’t want to play volleyball, but my mom wanted me to. 
One day after school I walked into the gym to go start practice. I saw was two older girls, Julia and Marissa, practicing.  They were having fun. They are top-notch players. I want to be able to play just like them ever since that day so I always try my hardest.
I started to really like volleyball; I enjoyed coming to practice every Tuesday and Thursday. When the season was over, I was sad. Ever since then I play volleyball every season and practice off-season. I became very involved with volleyball. I had so much fun it just seemed like all the problems in the world and my life vanished.

Now I play volleyball all the time and love it so much more. Volleyball has helped me physically, emotionally, and academically. Just remember, always go outside the limits and try new things. You never know, you may end up liking it!
