Happy Birthday to Me
Posted on October 10, 2014 at 10:40 am by and

My birthday is next month, but this year I don’t want any gifts. I am going to raise $1000 for the Dircio Rivera family and maybe some others too in Mexico. I am raising money for them because they don’t have that much money to make a home, so the money I raise will help them to have a house.

I will need your help. You can help by donating or letting others know about it.

Digital Citizenship

Be safe on the Internet by not giving away personal information.

Are you safe with your personal information?

Is there any other personal information you should keep safe?

Be respectful on the Internet because if you are not it might hurt someone’s feelings and they might think you are a cyber bully.

Voki

Have you ever hurt anyone’s feelings?

Do you think about empathy?

About my state
Posted on March 15, 2014 at 5:53 pm by and

I live in Arizona, in the USA. I’m going to tell you about my state seal.

If you look in the picture you can see miner, fields, the orchards, on the right side there is cattle, and behind the mountains there’s a sun rising. These are all the five Cs in our state seal.

If you are wondering what the miner means, it means he mines for metal. The metal is copper. The fields give us cotton, and cotton makes clothes. The orchards grow fruit. The fruit makes us grow and be healthy. On the right side there is cows, and the cows is the cattle, which gives us milk and meat. The sun rising behind the hills gives us sunlight.

Different state seals looks very different than others. For example, the California one looks different than the Arizona one because it has different features. Arizona has five Cs.

Why do you think the state seals have different features?

Most Important Inventions

My grandpa’s most important invention during his lifetime is the computer and the smart phone.

My other grandpa wrote his answer in an email to my mom, “The most significant invention created in my lifetime was the heart-lung machine, which enabled surgeons to perform open-heart surgery, and without which I would have probably died 15 or more years ago. So, you see, it’s the most important invention TO ME. You might explain that the heart-lung machine circulates the blood throughout your body during surgery, while the surgeons perform the heart operation. You will recall that I had my procedure June 10, 1992.”

Helping the Homeless
Posted on October 17, 2013 at 8:50 pm by and

I am sad for other people that are homeless. It’s because they have to live out in the rain and they have to stay really wet and they have almost nothing. But, there’s mostly people in there that doesn’t have homes in New York City. It’s really sad for them. Click on play below (or click here) to hear me share.

brainstorm

1. Have a canned food drive.

Tide Pools
Posted on March 17, 2013 at 1:53 pm by and tagged

I love going to the beach. I love the tide pools because you can find sand dollars in there. I found two whole sand dollars and pieces of others. The ones I kept were already dead, and found an alive one. The alive one is green. When they are dead, they are white or grey. Star fish and snails eat the sand dollars.

Have you ever found sand dollars at the beach?

What do you like to do at the beach?

Cyber Bullying
Posted on March 5, 2013 at 4:30 pm by and tagged

People should not cyber bully other people. A cyber bully is when someone is mean to someone else on the Internet like on a blog, or anywhere digital. It can even happen on a cell phone because it can send typed messages.

I watched this Online Safety video on BrainPop and learned that if you tell the Internet Service about being cyber bullied they can get kicked off the Internet.

If I get cyber bullied I would tell my teacher, or my mom, or dad, or a trusted grown up so they can stop them and get them in trouble. I would not be mean back to them.

If I see a friend bullied I would tell their mom or dad, or the teacher. I could also tell a police officer if I needed to, and could show the mean message.

I made this Puppet Pals 2 show about bullying:

I wrote this post because of the Student Blogging Challenge.

What would you do if  you or a friend were bullied?
