Challenge 6: More choices

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. So we finally have a new challenge and it’s another free choice. This time I’m going to write about something I call Gala Day. So just this morning I was participating in a school sport event called ‘Gala Day.’ The Year 5/6′s had to choose between Soccer or Softball. I didn’t mind and I got put into Soccer. We arrived at school at 8:00am and waited for the bus. We put on our shirts on and for the long bus ride. Once we got onto the playing field we waited for our first match to start. Eventually we got through all four games and we won 3 out of 4 games. Hope you guys enjoyed!

Hope you visit again and have a wonderful day

PS: I’ve been very busy so that is the reason of my lackage of posts.

Last Day of Swimming Classes

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. First of all I’m pretty sorry for not putting alot of posts up lately. I’ve been kind of lazy but now here is the latest post yet. So we finally have ended our school swimming program and it was a blast! We were divided into 2 groups. I was in the 1st group and we started with the fun activities like Ship and Shore, Spin around to make a giant whirlpool and all sorts of stuff like that. Then when 20 minutes was over we swapped with the other group and we got onto the inflatable obstacle course. We had a few tries on it and I slipped quite alot here and there but it was so tiring in the end. That’s going to be all for today so… later Choobsters!

Hope you visit again and have a wonderful day

Rules

So there are 9 rules in Word Mania and they are;

Challenge 5: Let’s get data

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. So this challenge was all about mathematics and  there were many options to write about and I chose to write about Free Rice. So Free Rice is a little mini game where there are a variety of topics and when you choose a topic you have a question to answer. For every correct answer you donate 10 grains and for every wrong answer you get 0 grains of rice. So I recently signed up and joined the group ‘Student Blogging Challenge’ and I chose the topic Multiplication  (Knowing that Challenge 5 was about Maths) So I have donated  250 grains of rice so far and our goal is to reach 1,000,000 grains of rice at the end of the Blogging Challenges! That’s it for now. Later Choobsters!

Hope you visit again and have a wonderful day

Challenge 4: Lots of choice

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. So this is Challenge 4 of the Blogging Challenge and as the title suggests this post is free choice. That means we could write about anything and the topic I have chosen is More Minecraft! So if you guys have been following me for quite a while you would know  that for Challenge 2 of the Student Blogging Challenge I did a basic overview about the 3 different realms of Minecraft and all the mobs. So now I’m going to tell you about the many more features of Minecraft. So I’m going to start with a little something called ‘Mods’. If you haven’t already guessed Mod stands for ‘Modifications.’ You install these into your Minecraft game which can change your game. There are 2 types of mods. Ones that change your game completely or just some that introduce minor changes. A major game changer is the mod called Mo’ Creatures which adds in a whole lot of different mobs and items. A mod that gives a minor change is the Timber Mod. The only change it offers is cutting down a whole tree by destroying the bottom block. Now I’ll move onto Texture Packs which simply gives a new look to Minecraft.

Here are some screenshots I took with and without the Texture Packs.

 

      Normal Minecraft

      Sphax Texture Pack

That’s all for today so later Choobsters!

The Extremely Cold Fishing Trip

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. So just today at 11 in the morning we woke up with our dad telling us that we were going on a fishing trip with our uncle. It was all so sudden that I had no time to think about it. So there we were in the car, travelling far and wide. Waiting to arrive in the fishing pond then we arrived at Karkarook Park. It was FREEZING! So we casted our lines and waited for ages… as usual. Then out of now where a MASSIVE storm came and we had to quickly pack up and head for shelter. The storm was MASSIVE and we were all freezing. I couldn’t feel my hands and it was so numb. Once the storm cleared up we left to our uncle’s house and we all had pizza. Afterwards we picked up our mum and left towards home.

Hope you visit again and have a wonderful day

Here are just some of the epic photos I took whilst fishing.

How to Gangnam Style for Dummies

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. I know alot of people have seen the new hit ‘Gangnam Style’ made by Psy but I know alot of people can’t dance to it properly. (including me!) I noticed I needed to do some training so night and day I’ve been looking for the Gangnam Style dance routine and have been dancing to it for 50 years!

I Caught a Keldeo!

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. It was just yesterday when we went to Chadstone. We had to get a present so we went to Target. We had to go into the Toys sections which was near the Games section so it was a ‘win win.’ I also noticed a giant poster about a new Pokemon named ‘Keldeo.’ It was one of those Pokemon which you could get out of a special distribution. It was limited chance and since my brother had his DS with him he got the rare Keldeo. I asked my Dad to get my DS out of the car so I had to wait for a while until he came back with my DS! So then I got the very rare Keldeo which was level 15. I didn’t care because it was SO rare. It’s starting moves were: ‘Aqua Jet‘, ‘Leer‘, ‘Double Kick‘ and ‘Bubble Beam.’ That’s it for today so I hope you enjoyed!

Hope you visit again and have a wonderful day

Challenge 3: Our World

Hey guys! I’m back with some more chooby goodness. So this challenge was to do something about our world. I decided to create my own mini-game using ClassTools. So this mini-game is called Lights-Out. There are 5 Light Outs of things in Australia and in the comments leave your answers. The answering system will work like this: If you comment the answers I will check the answers, approve them and reply like this ‘CJ got 5 out of 5.’ Then I’ll delete your comment so nobody can see the answers. Hope you enjoy!

PS: You have to answer them in order…
