Em's Edublog Nominations

Best Librarian's Blog: Bulldog Readers Blog

I love Pete the Cat, and so does Mrs. Hembree. She shares about Pete the Cat a lot on her blog. She always has great books, that's why I love her blog.

Best Ed Tech / Resource Sharing Blog: 

I love Ms. Terrell's blog because she always gives my mom good ideas for apps I'd like. They always end up being my favorites. 

Lifetime Achievement: Miss W

Miss W gives really good comments on my blog. My mom says she does that to lots of good blogs all over the world. She does so much. She should get this award.

Best New Blog: Blogging Bobcats

I went to their blog because it was talking about the earth, and I like to help the earth. I love how Mrs. Fraher writes back to me in the comments.

Best Class Blog: Fraher's Class and Friends

I love Mrs. Fraher's blog. She writes about things that I am interested in. For example, in her last post she wrote about scorpions. Sometimes my brother and I go out at night with a black light to find scorpions. Here's one hiding in the rocks:

Best Student Blog: Thinking About

I go to this blog a lot. I love it because Ethan writes about the things I like too. I like taking polls and he has a lot of polls on his blog.

Best Administrator's Blog: This and That

My mom likes this blog, and I see her read it. I like it because I like Mr. Castelhano, and I like the pictures, especially the one of the apple.

Best Mobile App: PBS Kids

This is my favorite app because it has lots of different videos, songs, and fun things for me to do. I learn too! 

Best Educational Use of a Social Network: 

I love the Student Blogging Challenge. Even though I don't write that many posts during the challenge, it's because I am still learning to read and write. I love the challenge because it gives me ideas, and it lets me make new blogging friends. 
Miss W & me. Miss W writes the Student Challenges.

Now you know my favorites. Who are your favorites?

Constitution Buddy

We had Constitution Day a few weeks ago. 

The Constitution is important because it keeps you safe. It has rules to keep us safe. 

My Constitution Buddy that I made.
I heard my mom and my brother talking about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and they were on this site

What did you do for Constitution Day?
What have you learned about our Constitution?
This post was written for the Student Blogging Challenge #3.

Ants Lift and March

I am learning about ants at school. I learned that they walk and walk, dig and dig, and lift and lift. They work together as a team. They also can bite people, so look out for ants!

My mom found this fun and interactive site about ants. 

Here's a video from National Geographic about ants. I liked this one.

What can ants do?
Where do they live?
What do you know about ants?
I wrote this post for the Student Blogging Challenge #4.

The Tooth Fairy Visited Me!

I lost my very first tooth and the Tooth Fairy visited me for the first time! 
I created this on my mom's iPhone using PicFrame, with a little help.
I wrote the Tooth Fairy a note to see if I could keep my first tooth and still get my money. When I woke up in the morning, I found one dollar and she left my tooth! I also got a little small note from the Tooth Fairy.

I'm going to make a scrapbook page to keep forever.

Do you have any ideas about how to make my scrapbook page look cute?
Has the Tooth Fairy ever visited you? If so, did you see what she looks like?

Obon Festival 2012

I went the Obon Festival with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle, and Auntie. 

I got to dance with Miss Lisa. She showed me how. You just watch the people in front on you, and you follow them.

I didn't have video of it this year. Here's what it looks like, but I'm not in this video:

I love that I get to go to this festival with my family. This is the second time, and I want to go again next year!

What do you like to do at Obon Festivals?
What festivals do you like to go to?
What special family events do you go to?

Arizona Festivals

For Student Blogging Challenge #2, I'm going to tell about the festivals in our area. I know of one of them and my friend, Serena, will help write the other two because she has been to them.
(I think) Red Baron & me 

1. Japanese Matsuri Festival 
We got to see the drums, and there was lots of food. People were dressed up in anime costumes or traditional Japanese clothes.

2. Lost Dutchman Rodeo Days
There are so many people, and horses. There is bronc riding and barrel racing. The food is amazing, and the music is great!

3. Renaissance Festival

The Renaissance Festival shows you what it was like to live in Medieval  times. There are people dressed in costumes and interacting with you. There are people running around interacting with you like you are one of them. They have giant turkey legs too!

If you were visiting us, which festival sounds the most interesting to you?

"Goofy me."

3. A picture of me playing soccer.
"Soccer me."

4. I love drawing and art.
"Artist me."

Please vote to tell me which one you think I should use:

Read Across America Week

It's Read Across America Week at my school. We learned new words, and we are reading in reading groups. Every day we are doing something special.

Tomorrow, we can dress up for Cat in the Hat Day by wearing red, white and black. I want my mom to draw whiskers on my face.

I started asking everyone at home if they like to read. Now I want to know if you do. Will you answer my question by voting?

Get your own Poll!

On Friday, I get to dress as my favorite character. I need help because I like so many.

Who should I dress up as?
