This week the entire class chose our “POSTS” of the week! They each had their blogging RUBRIC and they scored each post individually. Then, they tallied the totals and turned them in. Next, I added up all of their totals for each individual student. The top three highest scores became our posts of the week. Congratulations to Zoe, Zachary, and Rebecca. Each one of these students used great descriptions, details, proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation, along with multi-media, hyperlinks and great organization. Keep up the great writing.

Have you ever thought about if you had to live in one place for the rest of your life where you would live? Well, to narrow it down a bit, you have three options, a library, a museum, or a zoo. Which would you choose? Why would you choose it? Would it be relaxing, exciting, or educational? Would it be fun or always something new to see or do? Would it always have adventures? Do you love reading or animals? Do you love exploring and learning? Do you love having fun? Well, I am going to tell you which I chose and why.
If I had to pick to live in a library, museum, or zoo for the rest of my life, I would choose museum. I had a pretty hard time deciding between museum and library. I like animals because I have a dog, but a zoo isn’t the life for me. With library, I love books, but life would be pretty dull. Eventually, I would have read all the books. With a museum, I would have learned all about the old things that happened in history, and even seen things from them. Now I will tell you a few more reasons why I would choose museum.
I would choose museum because of all the interesting things I could learn about that is to do with history. I would become an expert! It would also be very educational. Can you imagine living in a museum? I would always have something to do and explore and it would be so much fun! There would always be new things to explore. There would be so many cool exhibits! The museum would also be a great place to play games like hide and seek. I have been to the Louvre in Paris, France and I loved all the paintings, especially the Mona Lisa. I also love the statues and old artifacts. At night, I would sleep in a small hidden room with paintings on the walls. I would get food and water from the museum cafe. It would be so cool to live in a museum for the rest of my life! If you had to live in a museum, a library, or a zoo for the rest of your life which would you choose and why?

Mrs. Teitelbaum asigned us a blog post about if you could choose someone to be president. If you got to choose anyone to be president who would it be? Who would you choose? Why would you choose that person? I know who I would choose guess if you said, choose Alvin Brown . Why would I choose Alvin Brown? I chose Alvin Brown to be president because he is fair he would treat everyone the same not just one religion http://dragonartz.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/religious-symbols-vector-set-1/
but, every religion. Alvin Brown is the first African American to be mayor of Jacksonville. Alvin is great with finance because he handles the money of Jacksonville.Alvin Brown has alot of integrity because he is honest about a lot such as, the money of Jacksonville. Alvin Brown once came to our school to watch fourth, fifth, and six sing Lean On Me. After I got to meet Alvin Brown and his kids after singing. I gave Alvin Brown a Artis Gilmore card. Those are the reasons why I picked Alvin Brown to be president of the United States. Who would choose Why?

I would want to live in a zoo, but not just any zoo. There is an indoor zoo in Montreal, Canada. The animals can walk free out of their little cages and walk where the people walk. I would be able to swim with penguins, climb with the monkeys, and even play in the gift shop. Plus, I enjoy reading and studying about biology. That indoor zoo is paradise. Here are some other reasons why I would want to live at that particular zoo and other zoos.
Well, let’s start with the animals. I would treasure being in a zoo because of animals. What’s a zoo without animals? There can be proboscis monkeys. Now a proboscis monkey is endangered so it is extremely rare to see one. You can see lions and tigers. One of my personal favorites is the reptile and amphibian house. That’s where snakes, turtles, toads, and frogs stay at. There can also be elephants, giraffes, zebras, and antelope. I also admire the crocodilians and alligators. Crocodilians are a different species of crocodiles. I personally absolutely enjoy watching the penguins. The beautiful birds like the parrots and cockatoos flying in the air make me feel like I am able to fly. Another one of my personal favorites are the butterflies.
I would play and sleep in the gift shop. There would be toys, more toys, and even more toys. There aren’t just toys in the gift shop. There are clothes and books. The clothes would keep me warm and the books would help my education explode! That’s why I’d want to have the gift shop be part of my “zoo house”. Have you been to the Florida Zoo? The Florida Zoo has a water park and a playground. I could play all day!
This is why I’d treasure living in a zoo for the rest of my life. See you there! If you were forced to live the rest of your life in a library, a zoo, or a museum, which would you choose and why?
