My Favorite Books

My favorite book is ‘Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great’. I like that book because it is about a girl who is going away for the summer and hates dogs,but the house came with one! She learns how to fit in. She is really happy when it is time to go home but she misses her friends, but what I really didn’t expect is that the dog has babies and she gets one!

General Lee’s surrender

If I had an extra day to remove, I would take out the day General Lee’s surrender happened at Appomatix Court House. That was the defeat of the Confederacy, but not the death of the proud and hard working dixie land! For General Lee’s heart and soul still lives inside of me,and many other proud southerner’s.

Blogging Day

I have never heard of blogging day, but today is leap day for us. This day only comes every four years! Blogging day sounds interesting, but it will only be here every four years. We don’t really have a big celebration for leap day, but at my school today we are having a birthday party for everyone. The birthday party is for every single student and just celebrates our birthday with everyone. Next leap day I will be seventeen years old and I will be a junior in high school.

Nothing Special

Today, isn’t an ordinary day. This day only comes every four years! Yet, I really don’t have anything special going on today. My school is celebrating a big birthday party for the whole school. I am not sure if it is the school’s birthday or if it just because it is Leap Day! I hope that I can persuade my parents to take my siblings and I out to dinner to celebrate a once-in-a-four-year chance!

What my day is all about

Hi my name is Jake. I am 10 years old and enjoy building legos. A typical day in the life of me is… Get up, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush my teeth, go to school, eat lunch, dismissal at school, go home, do homework, eat dinner, brush my teeth, and go to bed. Two words… CRAZY DAY!

What I would do if today was my day

If today was my day I would say that school would be canceled. I would love to tell people that today is my day. Then, I would go and collect my money from my butler. Hoping he didn’t steal any of it. Then, I would go eat, watch tv, and online shop. This would be the best day of my life. It only comes once every four years, so I would love to have it be my day. Wouldn’t you love to have your own day. I know that’s what I was thinking. The next day would be hard, knowing that I have to wait another four years for my day to come again. I would also be happy knowing that I accomplished something big and i would feel broud.

To old to be in school

If I could pick a day to remove from three out of four years I would choose my birthday.While everyone is in middle school I’m still stuck in first grade. The P.E. teacher wuold be amazed by my speed and muscles. The bus driver would be mad at me. By the time he gets to school I’ve dropped all the kids off at school. A couple of years later I’m starting middle school and I have a beard and I’m six foot seven.

What if I had an extra day?

If I had an extra day of the year i would go to Universal Orlando and move in the Lowes Royal Pacific Hotel. I would also go to Orlando Islands of Adventure and visit the islands of adventure. I would go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and buy it. I would also go to the Hard Rock Cafe and Hotel that is next to the studios and Islands of Adventure. I would also go to L.A and walk on the Hollywood walk of fame. Then I would go to Harry Potter set and see all the props they used in the films.Next i would go to the Universal studios and go see the Blue Man Group. Afterwards I would go on the The Hollywood Rip Ride and Rocket and pick a song to listen to while riding the ride. After that I would go to Wizarding World of Harry Potter and ride the Forbidden Journey in the castle. Then after my day I would go to the hotel and watch all the Harry Potter films and fall asleep.

What I Learned Today

Today during my language arts class I learned about how valuable my time is. I think that we should all live like we are dying because we only have so much time in our lives to live it out. Every move you make is a page in your book, you want as many memorable pages as possible. We take advantage of time, although if we don’t live like we’re dying then you can have many regrets when your older.

What I’ve Learned…

I learned that you really do have to live like you are dying. In Language Arts we listened to a song that said that because we have been thinking about time a lot since today only comes once every four years. I realized that if you were about to die you would wish you had lived a better life than you did. Wouldn’t you? So I need to pray more and live like I really was dying. I also thought about who I would call if I was on a plane and I called them with my last thoughts and goodbyes. I should treat those people like I care, every second of the day. NOT just every now and then…

Leap Day

My birthday is February 29, 2004. My name is Lulu. I was supposed to be born March 1, 2004. I would not choose to be born on a leap year. I would choose to be born March 1, 2004. MY birthday would be good to celebrate every four years!

9/11/2012

If I could take a day away for three out of four years I would take away 9/11. I would take away 9/11 becouse it would save the U.S a lot of grief and sadness. We would not have lost so many lives and so many ruined families would still be together. These are the reasens why I would take away 9/11 for three out of four years.

29 Days

29 days to improve the world, that’s a short time period to improve things like eliminating terrorism, provide food, water, and shelter to everybody that is in need of it. It’s a short period of time, but we could possibly do it if we imagine it. If I had 29 days to improve the world I would first eliminate terrorism and world hunger. I would reduce our carbon footprint. Eliminate the national deficit. Cure cancer, the common cold, influenza, and other illnesses. Provide jobs for families in need of food and water, along with shelter. Provide children with education that they need. Give health care to people that need it. Give alternative energy sources to reduce our carbon footprint. That is what I would do in 29 days, what would you?

If it was my birthday, I would be mad. I would hate to have my birthday every four years. I would hope my parents would change my birthday one day forward or backward so I could have a normal birthday.

happy leap year

happy leap year i think it is really cool how leap year only comes once every four years. If my birthday was on leap year i would not like it because you can only celebrate the one day about you only one time every four years.

GAC6

I have learned a lot today. I have learned that they have leap years because the is three hundred sixty-five and one fourth days a year. So thats why there is Leap Years and Leap days. Some people have birthdays on Leap Years and they only have one birthday every four years. That would stink because you would start kindergarden when you were 2o years old and your whole life would be crazy.

Live Like Your Dying

In Language Arts class i learned through a song. I learned that every single moment in your life is precious. I Learned that I should not wait to do something I want to because before you know it it can be to late. I learned to do what I have to do before I can to it any more.

A day in the life

Currently sipping my morning coffee. In a short while, I will have breakfast in between stroking my kitty cat. Then, it is off to work at a job that just got an extension on its contract! Yes, when I got up yesterday, I was unsure I would need to get up early today, now I know :-) I will spend the day working on training materials, trying to figure out why our CLE is is not doing what we want and generally trying to stay out of trouble.

Oh, and set up for a whale watching adventure for the weekend.

Being a rebel, question mark anyone?

Well, 16 years ago my mother was in the hospital as I was ready to come out. I was almost a leap year baby, so I would be 4 years old right now, but I ended up coming the next day on March 1st. For that reason, leap year is an almost cool, not quite as cool as tomorrow, but still pretty cool day.

Me time waiting for swimin

I’m hoping that I will be able to go to swimming tonight. I might not be able to because Marist (the school that I take swimming at) might be canceled. It might be cancelled because there is a giant snow storm that is forcing my school get out early. Right now in school I just wrote a comment for a school one of our quad blogging partners.

Perfect Day

If I could do whatever I wanted on this special day of February 29th, I would spend some time indulging in the greatest hobby on earth: reading! My family (all 18 of them who live in Maine, Colorado, California, Washington, and Virginia) would visit at my house, and we would enjoy the outdoors by taking a walk together with our two Jack Russels. Everyone would help cook a homemade meal and we woudl sit down and enjoy sharing it together, after thanking God for all of his blessings. If there were any extra time that I had to myself, I would spend it quilting! Peace to all fellow bloggers who are participating today!

The Importance of Foreign Languages in Schools

I think that learning a foreign language at an early age is super important. It definitely opens up someones eyes to a whole new world. No country is exactly the same, and by learning the native language and culture of a different country, all new perspectives are gained. I began learning German at the age of 12 and in the past 5 years, it helped me broaden my horizon and understand a lot more about the world and how everywhere you go, the customs change. It is also now a part of me in a positive way. That is why I believe that learning other languages is so important on a personal level, but also from a world wide standpoint, in being able to communicate with others. It is vital that children are given the opportunity in school, because after a certain age, it becomes rather difficult to pick up on another language easily, and once you learn one language, its easier to learn another. It is a shame that a lot of schools don’t offer their children the choice to learn a foreign language because it is a subject that you can learn a lot from and will become a part of you.

Birthday

I wonder if people who are born on leap day only say that they are one year older every leap year. For example, if your sophomore year is a leap year and you are a leapling, are you turning 16 or 4? I mean, it would be really cool to be four in your sophomore year. Do they say their age like normal or on a leap year schedule on papers? Is there a required way for the birthday? I know if I was born 10 days later and two years later, I would definitely say turn 4 in my sophomore year! Of course, I’d still want the presents!

Today in class we were assigned to blog about anything we wanted, but as time goes on, watching everyone working hard on their own I couldn’t think of anything. In this moment I’m sitting down in class only hoping time would go faster for this long day to be over so I can go home to rest. Hopefully everyone else is having as much fun with this as I am.

Cleaning Up Your Diet

The United States is seen today as the leading country when it comes to obesity. So how can we obliterate this notion, and become fit and healthy?
Ultimately, we must clean up our diet to reach our fitness goals. Healthy eating leads to a healthy lifestyle, lots of energy, and a motivation to exercise and stay fit. Healthy “dieting” (although I dislike this particular word), is essentially cutting processed, sugary, fatty, etc. foods from our everyday diet. I, personally, have found this to be a challenge in the beginning, but a beneficial everyday routine in the long run.
I, myself, am a vegetarian: veg·e·tar·i·an/ˌvejiˈte(ə)rēən/
Noun: A person who does not eat meat, and sometimes other animal products.
This means, as said above, that I keep meat (red meat and seafood) out of my diet. In April I will have been eating this way for two years. It definitely was a struggle the first few months, but I have easily adapted. My diet revolves around natural foods (nuts, veggies, fruit, etc.) that provide essential vitamins and minerals not often found in processed foods.
I have adopted this lifestyle to remain healthy and nourished, and it works well for me. Along with my vegetarian values, I have also found a way to curb cravings. It’s my 6/1 Plan. 6 days of natural, super-healthy vegetarian eating, then one day where I can splurge on the things I don’t eat those other days. For example, noodles, ice cream, dark chocolate. However, this is my personal meal option.
In order to cutout unhealthy foods, we have to cut the “junk”. Chips, soda, candy, baked goods, etc. . Craving a Snickers bar can be fixed with a bowl of fruit; natural sugars instead of processed sugars.
We need to keep in mind what we are truly looking for in our bodies. No one wants to be unhealthy in their school years, and therefore we need to take care of our bodies. To sum everything up, I have some tips and tricks for everyday life:
-Check the sodium levels. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americas, healthy adults should limit sodium to no more than 2,300 milligrams per day (that’s only 1 teaspoon of table salt).
-Try organic foods! Organic foods are not only good for you, but also for the environment, since organic farmers refrain from using toxins and pesticides.
-Stay away from junk food! Push it to the back of the fridge, only shop on the outer perimeter of the grocery store, pick out a piece of fruit.
I hope these tips were helpful, and may inspire you to clean up your diet!

Creating Tutorials

Creating tutorials for some of our online students about how to use the library resources to find sources for their assignment. Will probably spend most of the rest of the day updating and creating online subject guides aimed at the same purpose, in between answering reference questions from our students and other patrons.

Don’t be afraid to ask your librarian for help! We’re not at all (well most of us at least) like the horrid librarians in your children’s books. In fact, most of the coolest people I know are librarians. So don’t assume we’re all Madam Pinces! Helping you find the resources you need for your school assignments is our job – even if we may look busy working on a website – it is still with that goal, and we welcome your interruption to ask a question!

Obesity in America

i am currently a high school student at York Suburban High School. I participate in many physical activities to keep my body physically fit. As i walk down the streets of many cities I visit. I always see a bunch of over-weight people. It is more than less unfortunately. I wish i could do something about it because i care a lot about peoples health. I think there needs to be more restrictions on what people eat, and what Americans can buy to eat. Because the problem of obesity is dramatically growing, and if the United States government does not do something about it now, it is going to get worse. Unfortunately people have already grown into their habits, and it is going to be hard for them to get rid of them. There should be some kind of award if you lose so much weight if you are classified as obis. Most Americans only will do something if they can get an award, so why not? Why not help someone lose weight, instead of spending government money on something that is not needed?

Leap Year

Leap year has arrived. The one of every four years that allows an extra day. Do something fun, something unexpected, something you’ve wanted to do for a few years but never had the confidence to do. Sing in the street, ask the girl/boy you like on a date, do something nice for your parents. Or try and become supreme ruler of the world. Whatever you chose to do, you have had four years to do and now you are given an extra day. Make this extra day exotic and worth it.

If I could do anything…

If I was granted an extra day and could do anything I wanted, I would go windsailing. Feeling the strong breeze whip against my face and tasting the salty spray of the ocean is a treasure that I cannot experience often. I would walk along the beach, gritty sand gushing between my toes. The perfect shell would be within my grasp, because for shell collectors like me, the beach is a lot like Cloud Nine. Gripping the handlebar with clenched fists, I would sway like a feather, my weight turning the board with ease. I could see the tiny creatures living below, curiosity lingering on their delicate faces. Laughing, I would turn back to the shore, eyeing the oncoming sunset with longing. As I leap from the boat, I watch the sunset before the last sliver disappears under the waves, the bright colors performing a special dance of glee. Sandals in hand, I would walk back to my hotel, lethargic from a day of paradise.

29 Reasons Why

February 29th

it means nothing to me.
I could think of a million other dates that mean more to me.
March 9th. March 25th. May 3rd. December 25th.

And yet it is this date, this date that is the one that will not happen again for four years. Why? Why is /today/ the important day? Nothing is happening to me of significance!

But you know what I could do? What we could all do? We could make it important. Smile at a stranger, be kind to someone we dislike.

Brighten someone’s Leap Day. Okay? Great.

29 Days

If I had 29 days to improve the world, I would spend each day telling friends, family members, and random citizens ways that they can help our Earth’s environment, such as recycling, using cloth bags instead of paper or plastic bags at grocery stores, and planting trees. I would also tell people to promote world peace, which is especially an issue nowadays, what with Iran and it’s nuclear progress (which we do not know if it is peaceful or not.) Finally, I would encourage people to lead healthier, more active lives, since obesity is an issue here in America and around the world. This can be done by telling others to exercise and eat right.

Birthday on Leap Year

Leap year only comes but once every four years.
Because I am only considered being seven,
On my “birthday” I wake up with tears.
Even though I am 27 at heart,
I dread saying I am seven.
On Leap Year I put on my happy face,
And leave my tears with out a trace.
I get a lot of cake,
Because my mother loves to bake,
And I say,
Happy Birthday, I am finally eight!

Improving the world 29 days at a time.

If I had 29 days to improve the world, I would spend it wisely. First I would think about all the issues in America, and then pick the ones I think are more important. I would tell all my friends to help me save the environment. We would go to parks and beaches and gather trash, so that animals and young children don’t get hurt. Also, we would plant more trees where they can be planted. If I had 29 days to improve the world, this is how I would spend it.

February 29th, 2012! Yay! Leap year! We have an extra day this year, you know what that means…Party time! No No No I’m just kidding! Today you can do the things you couldn’t do earlier in the year. I would follow my favorite bands and go to all of their concerts. Then it would be time for a party. Even though my principal would rather come back to school, I would too. Not saying I would rather go to school than rock out at a concert, but whatever is easier. What would you do on your extra day?

Happy Leap Year!

Leap Day is here!
One more day of the year!
Only once it will come,
in every four years!

Children called ‘Leaplings’
who are born on this day,
Have only one birthday
Throughout these four years.

When I’m in twelfth grade
This day will return
This very special day
of which we all learn!

The stars, they had moved!
But Caesar, he knew,
An added on day!
And the calendar he saved.

A 29th day
In month number two,
Could save the world!
…Who knew?

If you had an extra day to do anything you what to do, what would you do? I would first go paintballing with my friends. Next I would go sky diving. Also I would play a fun and long football game.

Virginia

I live in the state of Virginia, and I think it is a great place to live. One reason I like Virginia is because it is unique and special in its own ways. One thing I like about Virginia is the weather. It’s pretty mild all year long. Summers aren’t too hot and they aren’t too cold. It’s almost always just right except for an occassionaly hot, humid days. The winters aren’t that bad usually either. Most winters will get three to four snow dustings, but this year we’ve had no snow at all. I love snow so that makes me upset. I enjoy sledding outside and hanging with friends in the cold snow. Two years ago we had a big blizzard and we missed school for about two full weeks. Does it snow where you live?

Another thing I love about Virginia is the seasons. Even though the year is pretty mild, the seasons are distinct. During the spring the flowers bloom, the weather warms up, and the air smells so sweet. Then, when summer comes the temperature is usually just right, and we have no school so we can relax. During the fall we have to return to school and the trees are so colorful. Our family goes to the Shennadoah mountains to look at all the leaves on the trees. Finally, during the winter the trees are bare and there is snow! I love Virginia because it is so unique. What is your country like?

Extra Day

If I had an extra day to do whatever I want, I would do a lot of the stuff I’d never would get to do. First of all, I’d probably sky dive since my parents don’t think it’s safe. Then I would play football and paintball with my friends. Then I’d probably go drag racing. Finally, I’d go home and watch tv and drink soda. This is what I would do If I had an extra day, what would you do.

What makes Virginia unique?

Washington D.C. is unique because it has the White House, the Washington Monument and the National Archives museum which contains some of the greatest documents in the world. Although Washington D.C. is very unique, we are also a lot like the other states. New York is similar to us because they have an important monument, its called The Statue of Liberty. New York is resembling us because their Times Square is like our D.C.(District of Columbia). Washington D.C. is our states capital.

Blogging day on Leap Day!

Well, I would love to say that I have been doing something phenomenal today but in reality, it has just been another normal day. I went to work, spent the day leaping around my classroom telling my students “happy leap year” in Spanish and teaching a unit on food and healthy living. (Every other day in class I still leap around but I generally do not shout happy leap year as I do it) So as I stated…another normal day.
Well, feliz Año Bisiesto to you all! I hope you also spend your day leaping!

If i had a birthday on febuary 29 i would definetly say i only had a birthday every four years and say if i was 12 i would say im only three. However if you used this tactick you couldnt buy products or other things like it until you are past forty years old. So i wonder how that works for some of the people who do this.

What the world will be like in 2050

Robots will be teaching school classes. The world population will be 9 billion and the life expectancy will be 200 years. Cars will be able to fly. Human minds will be able to be scanned and copied into robots. Medical advancements may mean that we will never have to die. Computers will be as smart or smarter than the human brain.

February 29th

I think the whole idea with the stars and the Earth’s rotation around the sun is fascinating. If February 29th were my birthday, I would feel different from everyone else. I wouldn’t like the idea that there is only one Leap Day every four years!!! I’d have to wait every four years to celebrate my birthday. Although there is a disadvantage to being born on Leap Day, it is also unique because when you would normally turn 16 you could say you were really 4 years old. Also, do any famous people have birthdays on Leap Day?

Did not take a nap today

Mom tried to cover me up with snow while we were shoveling the 8 inches that fell this morning….

I am too busy watching the neighborhood kids playing outside so I decided not to take a nap… I asked my Mom and Dad if I could go outside, but they said no.

29 Reasons Why I Teach

I am in my 14th year of teaching. Since beginning my career I have taught in four different schools, seven different grade levels, and two different contents. I am currently teaching Family and Consumer Sciences and twelfth grade English. I’m not sure if I got into education for the same reasons, but today, Februaray 29, 2012 I have 29 reasons for teaching. Here they are:

1. The kids
2. The content
3. Because I truly love the kids
4. Because I truly love the content
5. Because I whole-heartedly believe that I can be a positive influence in someone’s life
6. Because I may be the only person to say “hello” or “how’s your day going?”
7. Because I may have different expectations than the students’ parents therefore exposing them to different views
8. Because I believe that what I teach is sometimes not as important as how I teach it
9. Because I value education
10. Because I want to show my own two children how much I value education
11. Because I do enjoy summertime:)
12. Because I like connecting with students and learning more about them every day
13. Because I know I can’t change the world, but I may be able to change a person
14. Because I think every student should love literature, writing, and baking as much as me
15. Because my students make me laugh every day
16. Because my students make me cry more than I wish
17. Because my family is a family of teachers
18. Because it’s a necessary profession
19. Because it’s what I feel I was made to do
20. Because I’ve considered doing other things but always come back to teaching
21. Because I see how much I’ve grown as a teacher in the past 14 years and am willing to keep growing
22. Because I didn’t want to a child psychologist afterall
23. Because can give rewards and fun prizes
24. Because I get rewarded every day by they’re smiles and charm
25. Because I don’t mind smelling like fried food at the end of the day

Leap on Over to Mrs. Yollis’ Class!

Thank you, Deputy Mitchell for this wonderful Leap Year blog!

• We started our day here in California by reenacting a leap year. We orbited a pretend sun three times and on the fourth orbit…we leaped/leapt! That helped us understand that a leap year is that extra day we experience every four years!

• It is 54˚ F / 12˚C. It is going to be in the 80s later this week! That is surprising because it is still winter here in the northern hemisphere!

* Some people are going to a Leap Year Birthday party. One lady is celebrating her SEVENTH birthday today. How old is she really?

* Here is a great link to a Leap Year post by Mrs. Hembree!

Happy Blogging!

My School Life in Virginia

Life here around this time of year is cold. Sometimes it even snows! Today’s a rainy day so everone has on their sneakers.What’s the weather like where you live?Anyway,the school year isn’t over yet, but kids are already excited for summer. It’s a good thing we get a week off in spring! In school, we have these tests at the end of the year called SOL (Standards Of Learning) tests in each subject to see how well we learned. It’s on everything we’ve learned since the 1st grade! In high school, if you fail an SOL, you’re not allowed to graduate or have to repeat the grade.Do you have tests like that where you live? Thankfully, I’m not in high school yet, but I will be in two years. The most annoying thing about school is that it starts at 7:30 and ends at 2:30. If you want to catch the bus to school, then you have to get up at 5:25 or earlier everyday. It’s kind of like going to work in the morning, but for seven hours with a 30 minute lunch break. We also have physical education (P.E)class everyday and have to wear these very unflattering uniforms or we get sent to ISA (In School Assitance), which is detention. Do have P.E where you live? Do you have to wear P.E. uniforms too? And that’s what school life is like in my neck of the woods!
