Basketball Is the Best

            My only favorite sport is basketball. I like basketball because my ball movement is good enough to be a point guard or a small forward. That’s one reason why I like basketball. The other reason why I like basketball is that I shoot like LeBron James and we have the same form. I also know how to shoot well.

I have the same ball movement as Dawane Wade. I also see his ball movement highlight tapes so I can be a point guard like him. I’m really good at flashy passes to be a point guard. I also look at LeBron James highlights to. That’s one reasons why I look at highlights and flashy passes and my ball movement.

I also know how to shoot just like LeBron James. I have the same form as him. I shoot well to. He is my favorite basketball player and Dawane Wade. That’s all my reasons why I shoot like Lebron James.

I look up to LeBron James and Dawane Wade. As NBA players because I watch there highlights. I also have the same ball movement like Dawane Wade. I love his highlight tapes. I also have the same form as LeBron James.

Basketball

Basketball has been around for a long time. Basketball is a team sport. So I myself like basketball. It is challenging and you get strong and healthy which helps you focus.

            Basketball is challenging because you have to remember plays. Remembering plays can be challenging because if you don’t remember the plays you can get really confused and so can the team. Then next thing you know the coach is al confused and that is not good. You have to focus to stay in the game. The game of basketball can be easy and challenging at the same time. However if you don’t focus you will end up getting lose.

            The reason you want to be strong and healthy is because it will help you focus. If you’re not focused you can cause a lot of turnovers. Also the reason why I said it takes a lot of strength and good health is because if you’re not strong and healthy you won’t be able to shoot. You will miss every shot you take and you will get pushed and bumped up and down the court.

            So if you don’t like basketball you should at least try to play. It does not matter if you hate or are not very good at it. Get some friends together to play with you and have fun. I bet you and your friends will have a lot of fun. Basketball is an amazing sport. It takes a lot of effort, motivation, strength, good health, and focus.

Bike Riding

Everyone has a favorite sport, including you. Even if you think you`re not good at sports, you still have a favorite. Oh, and believe it or not, a lot of things you might be good at (or better than others), are sports, such as swimming, karate, gymnastics, and even cheerleading. So, as I was saying, everyone has a favorite sport and mine is bike riding because it is relaxing and fun. So, read on to find out more.

            One reason why I enjoy bike riding so much is because it helps me relax. Have you ever tried as hard as you can to concentrate, but you just keep getting distracted? Well, when I go for a bike, it is an easy way for me to be able to focus and have peace and quiet. Another reason why being relaxed is really important to me when it comes to bike riding is because being relaxed helps me stay calm. Now, I know that for most people when they ride a bike for a long time they start to get tired or uncomfortable, but for me it is the complete opposite.

            My other, and last reason why bike riding is my favorite sport is because personally I think it is a lot of fun, and by fun I mean when I get home from a long bike ride, I don`t want to get off of my bike and go inside. That`s how much I like to ride my bike. Also, by fun I mean when you are sitting in your house bored out of your mind, a way for me to find something to do, or “cure boredom”, is to go on a bike ride.

            So, think again when you say you don’t have a favorite sport. Like I said, something you could be good at and that you like could be a sport. My favorite sport is bike riding because I think it is relaxing and fun. I hope that you will practice so you can be good at sports, too.

How to Explain Christmas

Christmas is finally here! Everyone is excited! Are you? I put up a Christmas tree every year. I guarantee you I spend time with my family too. On Christmas I also have my traditions.

Christmas trees look like a pine cone tree. When you put a Christmas tree up you can put up ornaments. I put up ornaments on my tree because every single ornament has a special story behind it or an astonishing moment. My family and I do not put up a Christmas tree just to make it look beautiful. My mom buys us a lot of presents and puts them under our tree so when we wake up we can be happy that we have presents and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Family is special to people. Families get together to share a delicious meal and to visit with each other. On Christmas families get together and have a great dinner. I have ham, green beans, sweet potatoes, fluffy dinner rolls and even a nice chef’s salad. For dessert we either have pumpkin pie or raspberry pie and my favorite of them all is blueberry cheesecake!

Since my family is busy on Christmas we have our special tradition on Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is the day before Christmas. Everybody who celebrates Christmas has to have a tradition. My tradition is to go to my Aunt Maureen’s house. The reason why is because her house is cozy and brings back good memories. Another tradition of ours is to buy something like house decorations or even a Bath and Body basket or even a cooking set with pots, pans, silver wear and a cooking book in it. Then we put it under my Aunt Maureen’s Christmas tree. After that ever body gets a turn to pick a present.

Hopefully you know what Christmas is and what people do on Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas then you should try celebrating Christmas soon. Merry Christmas!

Explaining Christmas

       Have you ever celebrated Christmas? Let me guess, yes! Well, if you haven`t, I`m going to tell you what Christmas means to me! It means eating dinner and opening presents. Do you want to hear more? Keep reading!                   

     First, I am going to tell you about eating dinner. For one, eating dinner makes the holiday even more special because I get to eat all of my favorite foods. I get to eat all of my favorite foods like turkey, ham, stuffing, cranberries, chocolate covered pretzels, cookies, pies, cake, cheese, and crackers. Yum! Another reason dinner is special is because I get to eat it all with my family. Spending my Christmas at my Grandma`s house with my family is all I could ever ask for around Christmas time besides all the toys and clothes. Moving on, because now I`m getting hungry.                                     

     Lastly, I will explain the opening presents part. I love to open presents because it is fun and my sisters and I finally have a chance to rip something open without someone yelling at us. We can have something to do Christmas morning and something to do the rest of the break. I just love opening presents! Who doesn`t!                                                                                                                                                               So, Unfortunately I have to end the story, but at least I can still write this paragraph! I told you that for Christmas I have a special dinner and I open presents. I hope you celebrate Christmas in your own unique way!

This Is What Christmas Is To Me

Christmas is about presents, cookies, and hot chocolate. Presents are from Santa Clause or your family. Cookies are for Santa Clause and to go good with the cookies is milk. Hot chocolate is for when you come inside and it warms you up from the freezing cold. All those things are only half of what Christmas is about.

            Presents are from Santa Clause or your family. The presents can be filled with toys, games, and loads of stuff, except money or cash. If you’re bad, you don’t get any toys. All you get is coal, coal, coal! Stockings full of coal, presents full of coal, even bags full of coal. If you’re good, you don’t get coal, but you get what you want.

            Cookies are for Santa Clause to eat. There are pictures on them, like trees, reindeers, and Santa Clause heads. You can get chocolate milk or white milk to give to Santa. You can even give him eggnog.

            Hot chocolate is the best in the winter. You can get warmed up and you can get the sweet sensation of chocolate. Also, you can get your house cold by accident and drink hot chocolate to stay warm.. You can get your fingers numb from the cold snow and drink hot cocoa to make your fingers better. Also, it is a treat.

             This is what Christmas is about. It’s about presents, cookies, and hot chocolate.

My Favorite Day – Friday

“Woo!” It`s finally here. My favorite day! It`s Friday! My favorite day is Friday because I get to stay up late and spend five hours watching TV. Listen to find more.

Friday is awesome because I get to stay up late. I like to stay up late because I can do what I want. Once, my sister and I did makeovers and listened to music at 9:00 at night. I also like staying up late because I can choose the time I go to sleep. I can go to bed at midnight if I like. I love staying up late.

Last but not least, it`s five hours of TV. One reason I like my five hours of nonstop TV is because I can be comfortable for SO LONG. I can put on some comfy clothes and sit on the couch with some hot soup. Also, I like my five hours of TV  because I get to watch my favorite shows. They are five one-hour long shows. Those shows are The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, two episodes of  XFactor, and  Bones.

So, remember that my favorite day of the week is Friday and remember that I like Friday because I get to stay up late I and I get five hours of TV. I hope you have a favorite day too.

My Favorite Day – Sunday

Every person I basically know has a favorite day of the week.  Some people don`t.  I`m one of those people who does have a favorite day of the week. My favorite day of the week is Sunday!

There are all kinds of reasons why I like Sunday the most. A lot of people do different things. Some people do chores and other people may go to church. Knowing that people do those things I do something totally different. I hang out with my dad. We go out to eat breakfast every Sunday. We go to the Pancake Pantry. We try to get there before 9:30. The reason is that if we don`t we will have to wait a half hour. When we are there we find our seats and order. They have all sorts of pancakes! They have Germen pancakes with lemon and white powder. They even have apple syrup pancakes, and banana nut surprise, and regular buttermade pancakes.

My  dad and I also spend time together by going bike riding to get some fresh air. One of the times we went bike riding we started from Bloomer Park and rode 25 miles through the park.

Sunday is also my favorite day of the week because the next day is Monday. On Monday I great to see my teachers! On Monday we do dictionary definitions. There are many reasons why Sunday is my favorite day of the week. Sunday will always be my favorite day of the week!

My Favorite Day – Wednesday

I always look forward to Wednesday. Some people might think I’m crazy for liking it but I have my reasons. One of the reasons I like Wednesdays is because I have Glee Club. Glee club is special because it’s the only time I can sing without people getting annoyed with me. I also go to church practice on Wednesday with my dad and sister.

On Wednesday nights my dad and I go to church practice. On the way to church practice we always go to Tim Horten’s for some Timbits. My sister and I always eat the chocolate ones! When we get to church and go inside, I get out my my dad’s tablet to relax while he plays drums for the band. Church practice usually lasts two hours, but it all pays off because after I get home I get to go to sleep.

After school gets off on Wednesdays, I go down to the security desk to go to Glee Club.  Glee Club is fun because it’s the only time I can sing without annoying other kids. It’s also fun because it’s a team experience and sometimes the boys sing different parts then the girls. Usually my dad picks me up, but sometimes I walk home from Glee Club at five. The sunset is always breathtaking because we never get to see it at home.

Some people might think I’m crazy for liking Wednesday, but I like it for my own stuff. Like Glee Club and church practice. Glee Club is fun because you get to sing and church practice just lets you relax. And that’s why I like Wednesday.
