This is a post for my Language Arts class, The Reading Workshop. One of my hobbies is basketball. Basketball is one of the three sports I play. I picked basketball because it helps me with things. If I have had a bad day at school or something I go home and shoot some hoops. Basketball really helps me forget about stuff. It's like every time I play basketball I forget about everything. That one moment you make a shot nothing matters but basketball.
Basketball is the sport that me and my friend Sterling both try out for. Sterling is home schooled so I don’t get to see her much, but if we both make the team I get to see her a lot more. Sterling is one of my best friends and she is so kind and I would be so sad if I didn’t see her at all. I don’t want to lose my best friend and not see her anymore. That is why basketball is so important to me, to see my best friend.
Basketball is one of my hobbies and it helps me with a lot of stuff. I forget about everything that bad has happened. Also I get to see my best friend Sterling more. That is why basketball is one of my hobbies, and why I LOVE it so much.

Today I'm writing about why my favorite hobby is singing.One reason that singing is my hobby is that it sometimes helps me concentrate sometimes when I need to concentrate I sing in my mind. That is because if I usually do this when I’m frustrated on a test or somthing like that or homework, because obviously if it’s a test I don’t want to disturb everyone.
Another reason is that it gives me inspiration. What I mean by inspiration is that sometimes I write my own music, poems or stories that have short songs. Thats why I need the inspiration to write because it gives me ideas and sometimes I need inspiration when I have no idea what to write about on assignments.
Another reason singing is my hobby is that some songs that I sing or know reminds me of myself or someone else I know. That is because lets say listen to every word the song has and compares it to myself or someone I know. That’s why singing reminds me of some people or myself, those are my reasons that singing is my hobby, I hope you enjoyed this post!
One of my hobbies is playing basketball. I could not live with out basketball.Basketball is one of my hobbies because it gives me something to do. Every morning my dad gets me up at 5:20 to lift weights and play basketball until 7:40. We either lift weights then go to the gym and shoot or we lift weights and stay home and do drills. I do all this because when there is 1 second left and we are losing by 1 and I have to shoot the shot or free throws, I know I have practiced and I have confidence.
I love basketball because I can teach people how to play and be successful. I help David Harden get better every Wednesday and Friday. We do a lot of I'm possible drills, let me tell you they are hard. David has improved so much it is crazy. I am so proud of him. David improved so much he made the Logan Elm basketball team. It is a lot of fun now that we are on the same team.
One of the biggest reason is that it brings me so close to my friends that play on the team. We sweat, bleed, cry, win and lose together at Logan Elm. We are brothers. The people on my team that are in the hall way at school are Gabe, Jeremy,and David. Everybody is upstairs.Those are only a few reasons why I love playing basketball. The reason I picked those three is because those are the biggest reasons I play.

Hello all you readers of my blog. In this blog post I will be talking about my hobby of playing video games. I will also be talking about why they are so important to me.
My hobby of playing video games is fun and all but there is also a downside. The downside to my hobby is that if you play video games to long or to much without taking breaks or going outside it could damage your eye sight and you could gain a lot of weight. Luckily I have some very good friends that live around me. All three of them are 6 to 8 years old but the four of us have a lot of fun. So I try to even out my play time to about one fourth the time playing video games, one third of the time playing with my friends, and the rest of the time relaxing or sleeping.Some reasons that my hobby is so important is because my friends aren't home sometimes. Another reason is because my mom is normally somewhere else and my dad is usually at work. It is also important to me because before my mom met my dad I hardly had any video games which made me feel sad when my friends talked about all the video games they play.
That was my assignment given by my Language Arts teacher Mr.McGuire. I really have a lot of fun with my hobby of playing video games.
I am writing an essay about things that I like to do outside of school. So here is my favorite hobby out of many hobbies. I hope you like this post.
My favorite thing to do outside of school is play outside with my brother. There are many things that my brother and I enjoy to do. My favorite thing to do with him is play a mini football game called, "Kicker's Paradise". We created the game day by day. It started when Logan was doing pass patterns and I was throwing to him. When he scored he kicked the ball to me and that's when I said,"Dude, lets see who can kick the ball the farthest.''. So after the day was over Logan and I were arguing over who kicked the best after that. The next day, when Logan and I got home from school, we played the game again. After a while, I went to the other end of the yard and told Logan to kick the ball to me so I could catch it. He kicked the ball and I caught it. But I couldn't resist the urge to run towards him and he try to catch me and I scored a touchdown. After that I said to Logan that we should make a new game where you have to kick the ball to the person at the other end of the yard, and the other person try's to get passed him and you have to two hand tag him before he scores. He said that was a good idea, but he wanted to name the game. He thought for about seven minutes and then came up with,"Kick and Score". I kind of liked the name but I wanted it to be more catchy. So I came up with,"Kicker's Paradise". He liked that.
Every once in awhile Logan and I will just kick the ball to each other or run pass patterns, but we will always go back to playing "Kicker's Paradise". So, my favorite hobby is playing outside with my brother. I love playing "Kicker's Paradise" because I love competing and love having fun. I hope you like this post and if you like competing, love sports, and have somebody to play with, then try this game. You don't need cones! Bye
My favorite hobby is basketball. I just started playing basketball about two years ago. I really did not like it it that much until I started playing it. A big influenced is my friend Isaac he really strive on making me the best that I can be. I have to admit I have beat him like one time probable in basketball that how good he is and it anti just luck every day he does his workout.
Basketball has really help me in so many different ways first way. The first way is when I need to throw something around in my head like a bad grade that I got on a test and I can go outside and act like Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neal and just have the attitude like Kobe or my favorite Shaquille O'Neal. I always act like there is three seconds left in the game and if I make this shot I win the NBA finals. For some reason I always pick I am going against Lebron James or Kevin Durant. I am pretty sure almost every kid does who watches basketball.
Basketball is a sport were it takes every thing to do good you cant just go out one game and didn't come to practice that whole week and say I am going to score 20 points and steal the ball 14. If you can do that with out coming to practice that that is all luck there no work in that. I have really committee myself to basketball since I am a rookie it is extra hard because I have to able to learn quickly. I get one pass if I mess up but really I think that one pass is one extra minute on the bench.

My hobby is playing softball!!!I play softball most of the time, any time I have to play softball I use that time because I love it so much. I play softball for Vikings Elite. My coaches names are Tony Evans, Buck Thomas, Josh Crosby, and Brian Tidbits. Those are the funniest coaches that I have ever had . My favorite thing about softball is that I get to see my friends. And my absolute favorite thing to do at softball is GET DIRTY!!!
One time in the championship game there was a runner on first and second and we were down by 1 I was up to bat 2 outs the whole team was depending on me I had a lot of pressure on my back ... so I got up there and I had so much pressure on my that I got 2 strikes on me and I took a deep breath and I told myself to believe in myself and that I could do it . So after I did that I got up to the plate and the next strike that came down the plate I turn my hips and line drive over the center fielders head both runs came in and I got a triple!!! that felt like I was the best person in the world no one was better than me. It was the best time of my life.
Another time that happen was when I was in coach pitch there was 2 outs and it was the game that we had to win to go to the championship game. There was runners on second and third we were down by 2 and I was up to bat and I hit a HOME RUN over the right fielders head and my coaches were going crazy and when I got to home plate all my team mates ran out to me they were jumping and laugh and hugging me. And then my coach Drew came and picked me up and carried me to the next field to play the championship game that was the absolute #1 favorite time of my life when I was running home mt heart was beating so fast it just made me go faster. And when I stepped on home plate it felt like I with the best and that I could beat anyone at anything at that moment.
One hobby I like to do is collect ,buy and sell Pokemon cards. Pokemon stated in china and called packet monsters. Pokemon is now on the Nintendo ds ,3 and 2 ds .Each year Pokemon gets more monsters and the company grows bigger and bigger.
In Pokemon their in legendary and non-legendary.Above is a couple of legendary Pokemon out there in the card and game. Their are over 8 Pokemon games out there.In the card game you buy a Dex and use the cards in the Dex and battle with them (I will tell how later).
People that collect Pokemon are called trainers.One reason I like Pokemon because I get to be creative.Another reason I like Pokemon because I get to meat other trainers around the world.
My hobby is modeling almost about anything. I have cars, rockets, and helicopters. They are a lot of fun if you know how to use them properly. With RC things you can't be rough on them.
My RC car is really fun, it's not fast but it's fun. My RC car is a Camaro SS. I'm getting really good at it. I'm currently learning to power slide. I like engineering. it's what i'm trying to be when I grow up.
This is my hobby I hope you like it as much as me or even more when try it. model cars, helicopters, and rockets are like the best things to me like my Camaro in the picture below.

My hobby I like to do is to go outside, all dressed up, playing around like I am in my own story. Now I know it is funny to think of of a six grader running around dressed up like a ninja, but to me it is fun. The way it is fun is that you can be anything you want to be, like Batman! It is also fun because you have no limits.
The way I dress up is I get a sweat shirt, and I wrap a scarf around my nose and mouth, then I put on my shoes. I also like to use props. The props I like to use is two plastic swords. Using props to me is really fun, It is also really fun to dress up like I said. I know that dressing up is kind of lame, but to me it is fun.
Another reason why my hobby is so fun is because you have no limits. I know I said that at the beginning, but I would like to talk about that a little more. The way you have no limits is that you cane be where every you what to be. You can be in space, you can be in another world, you can even be in a whole other universe. That to me is awesome.
But it looks like I have to end this post here. I know it's not that much but I at least I got it done. This will also be on Edublogs on my site Jacob's Jurassic Jungle. Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
I like to play softball because it is a really fun sport. Some people don't like softball because they think that they will get hurt. I get hurt all the time. One time I was trying out for a team and they had their fastest pitcher and she hit me right in the shin. I can tell you that it only hurt for a second. So people who like softball and want to play it is not that scary at all.
I also like to play football with my brother. I like playing football but I hate it when my brother tackles me. We mark the touchdown lines at our house with sticks. It is really fun. Like one time I almost had a touchdown and my brother tackled me at the last second. I was so mad.
I also like to go to Old Mans Cave is a really fun place to go on vacation. I like going because I hike up and down the trails and it is really fun. One time I met these people that came from Pennsylvania. They were really nice people. When you go to Old Mans Cave you can meet new friends. I met a friend that was from Tennessee.
My favorite hobby is art because I get to draw anything that comes to my mind. I also like art because my mom and I like to get out several pieces of paper and draw it is also fun when the family does it. It is also fun because my mom has her own art business and she lets us know about art and lets us mess around with her art stuff. Some of her art stuff is stuff you have never seen before. My mom and I do way more fun stuff than just draw.
My mom and I like also to make figures out of clay it is so fun and easy to do. When the clay is soft you make anything out of it. Then you put it on a baking tray and put it in the oven and wait till its done then when you take it out you can begin playing with your clay figure.
My mom does clay houses witch are houses out of clay. It might sound easy to do but it is not. My mom also does clay dolls too. The coolest thing she does is make dog portraits. They are so cool. I think my mom is a great parent. I want to do what my mom does.
One of my hobbies are playing football. I like football because it is a sport with a lot of contact in it.
I know what you mean Cole. When I played I loved the sound of a good hit. When the pads smack together that crunching sound and the oooommmppp of air shooting out of someone is something that you only know if you played. That was my favorite part. I played linebacker for Logan Elm way back in the day and football was about the only thing I liked in high school. The contact is something I will never forget.
There are a lot of things I'm interested in, but the thing I'm interested most in is, video games. If you're one of my friends then you probably already guessed it, but you probably don't know why, so let me tell you how it happened.
It all started a long time ago when I was 4 years old, I was at my Grandma's house when I was introduced to Spyro by my cousin Kaitlin. She hooked up the Playstation 2 and started playing the 3rd Spyro game, Spyro: Year of the Dragon. I was amazed at how colorful and fun the game was. A few weeks later Kaitlin and B.J. (who is also my cousin) let us have The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning. I could not keep my face away from it, it was amazing.
About a year later I think, I realized I wasn't satisfied, and with more control over my little kid brain, I begged my parents to get me the sequel, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night. Eventually, I got it, and it was better then the first one. It had better everything, and even allowed you to complete special challenges once you beat the game to unlock something absolutely amazing.
Then, around Christmas time My mom and I were looking through the toy catalog and saw The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. I was so psyched, I couldn't wait for Christmas. At last when Christmas came we went down to Grandma's house for Christmas dinner and after that we started opening presents, I got one of my presents and it was shaped like a case, I immediately knew what it was, it was Dawn of the Dragon! I don't know long I was asking my mom when when we were going to go home.
That's how I got interested in video games, but not why I'm still interested.
As I got older I started to expand my knowledge of games and eventually got introduced to the Wii. The first 2 games I got for it was Wii Sports and Wii Play. They were pretty fun but then I got a game from a series I had heard of before, but never played, I got Super Mario Galaxy 2. It was fun, and I didn't really care that it was the second one in the series.
On my 7th birthday I got something that really made me happy as I could take it with me anywhere. I got a PSP (Playstation Portable). I got so many new games, I was so happy.
On my 8th birthday, I got an Xbox 360, big game changer, literally. It opened me up to so many possibilities for games. During my birthday party I noticed my cousin Kaitlin playing a game called Minecraft.
Sometime over summer break, Kaitlin and Kyle (the awesomest person ever!) came to visit, and he downloaded Minecraft for me. I started playing Minecraft and watching videos of it to. I saw Skydoesminecraft and all sorts of people and one of them would make a reappearance sometime later.
Eventually I got Minecraft for Xbox and it was fun. One time in 5th grade, I was in art class, and one of my friends reintroduced me to a guy on YouTube who plays Minecraft. His name was, Stampylongnose. Stampy introduced me to so many new games from watching his videos because he does more than just Minecraft.
One day over summer break I got a console that I had wanted for a year, it was a Nintendo 64. I got some games and played them for a while. A game I'm still trying to get is Zelda: Majora's Mask.
So that's how and why I'm interested in video games. Kaitlin is who introduced me to video games and Kyle. And I guess I just always had an interest in video games. So thats what I'm interested in.
