basketball on a court in a gym

Hello bloggers,

Basketball is one of my favorite sports. Lots of people play it because all you really need is a ball. I have a basketball net in my front yard I play basketball occasionally but when I do I usually stay out for a while. When I play I usually just shoot hoops unless someone’s over then I play 21.

My favorite NBA team is the Golden State Warriors. What’s yours?  I think their best player is Stephen Curry, Steph Curry for short.  He’s number 30 and has played there for a number of years.  He has helped them win two NBA Championships in 2014/15 and 2016/17.

I’m hoping that I can play basketball at school this year because its a lot of fun to play although I’m pretty small and not that good. That’s all for now and see you soon.

Over and out.

Hi Bloggers, it’s Jaben

Baseball is my favorite sport,  I like watching and playing it. I hope to be on a team this year.

Baseball is a team sport that you are trying to hit the ball out of the park.  If you do, you get to go around all the bases, and everyone on a base gets to go too.  Every player that passes home plate gets a point for their team.

When one team is batting the other is catching and trying to get three players out.  To get an out you have to either get three strikes, catch the ball before it hits the ground, get the ball to the base before the player does, or just tag him out.

There are nine innings and an inning ends once both teams have pitched and got three players out.

sincerely Jaben


Magic McDavid

 Hello bloggers,

Zoom! Connor McDavid is one of the fastest players in the the NHL. He is also one best NHL players over all in the 2017/18 season. So if he gets a breakaway it’s a 99% chance he’ll score and if he scores he cellies.  A celly is when after a goal the player throws their hands in the air or slides on the ice. Connor McDavid is 20 years old and he has played for the Edmonton Oilers all his career, since 2015. Connor squeezed 100 points out of the 2016/17 season.

Connor McDavid is creative because he makes up his own dekes and dangles around every one. McDavid thinks outside the box to get around players, which allows him to get the shot away. He is also one of the best at passing because he knows where everyone is on the ice, he doesn’t need to look to pass so the other team doesn’t expect it.

McDavid is a risk taker because he is always going hard to the net. In his first season in the NHL he got slammed into the boards and broke his collarbone while going hard to the net. But he is still going hard to the net today and that is how he gets most of his goals.

McDavid is strategic because he works smart by practicing hard and playing harder. He also watches plays that he did to help him to see what he did right and what he did wrong and to improve as a player.

Some of the things we can learn from McDavid is to have perseverance and never give up because that helps you to succeed.  Sometimes taking risks makes you get better.

Sincerely, Jaben

It’s the middle of the day

sun shining bright

but it is as dark as night

The moons in the way

it’s blocking the sun

the solar eclipse has just begun

The time is passing

minute by minute

the solar eclipse is just at its limit

The sun’s coming back

second by second

then when it’s done

it’s back to the sun

In this picture I see a snowy day, where the air is crisp and clear.  I Imagine the only thing you can hear is a quiet crunch, crunch, crunch from the lynxe’s soft paws. I wonder where he’s come from? Where he’s going? I wonder if he’s done this route before? Or if other lynx have done it before?

I want to know what you see?

Sincerely Jaben.
