The calm, quiet wind
Brushing through the trees
The small chickadee chirping happily
The great maple’s leaves opening up,
like the first spring flowers opening in the morning sun
The happy little voices of kids playing outside
The small little fern opening up
Full of joy
A thick cloud of dust trailed behind the rear tire of the bike
The rush of adrenaline thick in his veins
His muscles tensed
The fear of pain washing away
His eyes as sharp as a eagle
His smell as swift as a hound
Screech the bike comes to a halt
And the rider says
“I think I could ride on forever”.
and this is my favorite poem
The wind howling through the trees
The dark, sleek sky
The trees like iron bars keeping me in
The small ferns curling up in the storm
All the birds singing with a fearful trill
It looks like I’m trapped
and this is my last post as sad as it sounds bye bye for the last time
Drip, drip. Joey was exploring a cave on a planet in outer space. He was looking at a crystal when he herd a bang, bang, bang. A huge monster stepped out! It was a big purple spider like creature. Joey quickly puled out his gun and shot the monster but it bounced off the monster. Joey was so scared that he shot him self.
Today I’ll be talking about where I live. I live in Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada. It’s made up of three towns that are Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland. There are lots of things to do in the Comox Valley. Here are some of them.
The Comox Valley is surrounded by the Beaufort mountain range. One of the mountains is more popular than the others, its called Mt Washington. Many people go skiing and snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. There is also great hiking there at Paradise Meadows.
The Comox Valley is also surrounded by ocean. Sometimes me and my Dad go fishing. We usually don’t catch anything but it’s fun anyways. There are also lots of beaches. People can kayak, swim, walk their dogs, and build sand castles. My favorite beach is Goose Spit because I like kayaking there.
The Comox Valley is home to lots of forests, there’s one right behind my school that’s called the North East Woods. In the forests you can go for hikes, go for bikes rides, walk your dogs and go geocaching. Geocaching is where people hide boxes with stuff in them and you try to find them by using a GPS app.
There’s also lots of other sports in the Comox Valley. There’s hockey, tennis, gymnastics, soccer, lacrosse and lots of others. Here are some of the sports that I do: taekwondo, baseball, basketball and biking. My favorite sport is mountain biking, I think Cumberland bike trails are the best trails in Canada.
The huge ship was slowly crashing through the small canal, while buildings were falling over all around. The ship had massive engines, but not enough power to overcome the force that was pulling it into the canal. There were horns sounding all around ,”run we need to get to safety. The ship had huge puffs of smoke coming out of the engines because they were working so hard, who would survive?… To be continued.
Today am talking about Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday because you get to give and receive gifts. But there are some weird things about Christmas. Like why do you decorate a tree? why do you get and give gifts. before lights you jest lit your tree on fire. At Christmas I don’t get to much presents but I say “it is fun to give presents because you get to see there face light up”.
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 twoNBA 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.
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.
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 slideson 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.
