Hello class,

Here are the things we are going to do today:

1. Practice typing. AST or BBC.

2. Find a picture of your favorite singer, actor, writer, artist, or sports star.

3. Post the picture.

4. Write a paragraph about who the person is, what do they do, and why they are your favorite.

Here is an example:

anne-hathaway-3667

 

This is my favorite actress Anne Hathaway. She is an American actress and she has acted in many great movies. The first time I saw her was in a movie called The Princess Diaries. She was just a teenager back then, but she was already a wonderful actress. She is not only an actress for teenager movies, but she has also acted in many serious dramas, like Les Miserables for example.

I really like Anne Hathaway because I think she is a really talented actress. She is also very beautiful and elegant looking. I hope to see her in many more movies in the future. If you don’t know who she is, maybe you can check out the movie The Devil Wears Prada. That’s one of my favorite movies, and she’s excellent in it!

Week 9 – October 21st, 2014 – Game Link and Review

Hello, class!

Here are the things we will do today:

1. Practice typing for 20 minutes. Go to AST or BBC.

2. Go to the links below and play the games. Choose the website you like the most.

3. Copy the link and put it on your blog.

4. Write a short paragraph about why this was your favorite website, and describe the game.

5. Write at least 50 words in your paragraph.

Here are the links:

Where’s Waldo? (Deep Sea Divers)

Where’s Waldo? (The Future)

Poptropica

The Adventures of Tintin 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Example:

Post name: (name of the game you like) “Where’s Waldo (The Future)”

My favorite game is Where’s Waldo? You can play the game here.

I like this game because it is very exciting and fun. The picture is so cool with so many people in it! Some of the people in the picture move, and it’s very fun to look at. But, this game is so difficult. There is a long list of things I have to find. The things are very difficult to find. Some of the things are very small, so I can’t see them easily in the picture. Sometimes I don’t know who I am supposed to be looking for, so I have to do some research to understand who the characters are. In conclusion, I love games that are a little difficult but fun. I also love looking for things! That is my favorite kind of game. Click on the link and try the game for yourself!
