I am going to blog about basketball because it is my favorite sport.  The inventor of basketball is James Naismith.  He was a Canadian American sports coach.  He created it late 1891 and it was not a Olympic sport until 1904.               .

CHALLENGE 4 ACTIVITY- "WHAT'S ALL THE BLOGGING ABOUT?"

I still cant believe that uconn beat Kentucky in NCAA mens basketball championship.  Of coarse I wanted Kentucky to win but there has to be a winner and loser in every game. I watched the game in hopes of Kentucky winning.  I love the game of basketball so that is why I blogged about it.

Shabazz Napier leads UConn to NCAA title with win over Kentucky, tells world 'This is what happens when you ban us'



This article is about the NCAA tournament so that is why I linked it to my blog.  It talked about who won and who lost the game like I did but it went more in depth about Uconn's top scorer Shabazz Napier and other details about the game.  So the author does not have an opinion.

Challenge 2- "Read Across America"

3/14/14

I will be doing the audio choice for this weeks challenge.  For the audio I chose a program called voki.  Which is very simple to use.  This is a brief intro to my voki.  My favorite book is Harry Potter because it is a series and I love the storyline.  It is a great read for anyone that likes fantasy books.  They have also made it into a movie.

“Let’s Get Blogging” #1

2/16/14
The three I have chosen to blog about are 20. How other people would describe you
21. The song you listen to on repeat              16. The place you’ve always wanted to travel to

I think the way other people describe me is being Nice and kind. But I also do have a bit of a fun side.  But that is on special occasions. Like the weekends

  The song I listen to on repeat is "Happy" By pharrell.  That is a song that you have to smile when you are listening to it.  It is a happy song.  


And one place I've wanted to travel is Alaska.  I want to go to Alaska because of the scenery.  It is a beautiful state.  But I would have to go during the summer because it is bone chilling during the winter.

January Smackdown

1/30/14
The book I chose for the January smack down is Harry potter and the order of the phenix.  The author is JK Rowling.  There is nothing that really inspires me about the book but it is a good book.  There was nothing that really confused me ether.  I really liked the characters that were in the book.  I am not wondering about anything.  I would recommend the book to other people.  I like this genre so I will read it again.  I thought the twitter chat went well other that the technology problems.

Am I A Genius?

1/10/14
No, I am not a genius.  I am not super smart.  A genius is very smart.

For someone to be a genius you have to be very smart.  Like Thomas Edison.  He was the inventor of the lightbulb.  Now look how many people use that simple invention every day.  Most people take it for granted but it has forever changed the world.  Some characteristics of a genius is a smart person that has contributed to society in some way or the other.  It doesn't have to be world changing but it is a person that has had an impact on other peoples life.

A person becomes a genius by becoming smart and knowledgeable in a certain area.  I am not a genius but there are lots of people that are.
