As you may know, the Rockets beat the Thunder already. So, now they play the Spurs. In game one, I honestly thought that the Spurs would win because they were at home and they have a better regular season record. But, the Spurs did not win. The Rockets creamed them by a score of 126-99. Trevor Ariza was the highest scorer of the game with 23 points. James Harden had the most assists with 14 assists. And Clint Capela had the most rebounds of the game with 13 rebounds. They are all on the Rockets.
But, game two didn’t go as well as game one. Rockets lost the game 96-121. Kawhi Leonard was the highest scorer of that game with 34 points. The highest scorer on the Rockets was Ryan Anderson with 18 points. The series is now 1-1. I hope the Rockets will win so then maybe they will,make it to the finals.
Yoyo went to the mall to get his son a birthday present. He couldn’t find anything until he went into this strange new store.
He found a really cool doll. He bought it. He took it home and gave the doll to Lil’ Yoyo. Lil’ Yoyo really liked it. They all went to sleep, but Yoyo and Lil’ Yoyo woke up when they heard a loud bang.
The doll was nowhere to be found. They went to the kitchen and saw the pots and pans all over the place. There was the doll just lying on the ground. They were like “whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat”
Yoyo and Lil’ Yoyo cleaned it up and Lil’ Yoyo took the doll back and went back to sleep. The next morning, Yoyo took the doll back to the mall, but when he got there, he couldn’t find the store. He didn’t want to throw it away because he spent $200 on it. So, he took it back to his house and gave it to Lil’ Yoyo.
They went to sleep again. This time, they all woke up to a loud crash. They went to check it out. All of their furniture was broken and again the doll was just lying there. Yoyo and Lil’ Yoyo thought it was their dog, but they couldn’t find their dog anywhere. They were getting scared now. So, they took the doll and destroyed it. THE END.
Joe was walking in the woods at night.
“Hoot hoot”, said an owl.
Joe was now getting really scared.
The sky darkened and thunder roared through the woods. Joe just wanted to get home. But the only way back home was through the woods. Joe thought, “Wow, this couldn’t get any worse”.
And, he was right. It didn’t get worse. He still has another hour until he gets home. So, he kept on walking. He was walking, then he tripped. He looked to see what he had tripped on. It was a stick. He picked it up and threw it into the trees.
He heard something. Footsteps. He had never seen anyone else in those woods. He started running. He could see his house now, but the footsteps were getting closer. He saw what was making the footsteps now. It was just a deer. Then, he walked into his house and went to sleep.
I hate homework so much. Homework isn’t necessary. I’ll tell you why.
First of all, we wake up early then we go to school for long time, then we come home and we have to do homework. I guess I wouldn’t really mind it that much if they gave us less homework. In some subjects we get a lot of homework that can take up all of your time after school. It can take like a couple of HOURS to get your homework done. We really should get less homework or no homework at all. That would be the best.
Even if one class gives you a lot of homework, it’s still a lot. But, sometimes multiple classes give you a lot of homework to do in ONE WHOLE afternoon. Then, you have to stay up late to finish it, then you’re really tired the next day. So homework is supposed to help you, but actually it can make your grades worse if you’re tired the next day.
It’s time for schools to stop and think about the amount of homework they’re giving to us.
Have you ever been sad? Well guess what? Laughter is the best medicine for when you are sad or feeling bad.
If you are really stressed out and you feel bad, you should try to laugh. Laughter is scientifically proven to make you feel good. It release endorphines in your brain that make you feel good. If you ever feel down, just try to laugh. Share a joke or something like that. Laughter can also help by making you feel good if you are really nervous from studying for a test.
Whenever I feel bad or stressed, laughter always helps. Like, one time I was feeling really bad because I lost something, and laughter made me feel good. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of goodness and can even temporarily relieve pain. Also, if that’s not enough, a study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor lived longer than than those with no sense of humor.
So, laughter makes you feel good when you feel bad, decreases stress and makes your immune system better, and makes you live longer. That’s why laughter is one of the best medicines.
I always dread orthodontist appointments
To begin with, I don’t like how they stick a LOT of tools in your mouth. It gets hard to breath when that happens. And, if I have to go get my braces tightened, my teeth hurt for like about a week. Last Monday I had my braces tightened and they still hurt. But, slowly, it’s getting better.
On the first day you get them tightened you can’t really eat something hard or crunchy. Also, sometimes the braces cut my gums. That’s really annoying.
Another reason, why I hate orthodontist appointments is when they have to add even more brackets, because that just makes my teeth hurt even MORE. That’s why I always dread orthodontist appointments.
The NBA All-Star game is a game where people vote on players to play in the game.
James Harden made it, so that’s good.
East Starters: DeMar DeRozan, Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jimmy Butler
West Starters: Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, James Harden.
Russell Westbrook wasn’t a starter even though he averages a triple double. But James Harden is, so that’s all that matters. James Harden averages 28.6 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and 11.6 assists points per game. I predict that James Harden will be the best player with 42 points. I also predict that the final score of the game will be 89-97 with the west players on top.
I think Russell Westbrook should replace Stephen Curry, because Westbrook averages 31 ppg, 10.2 apg, 10.6 rpg. Curry averages 24.6 ppg, 6.2 apg, and 4.2 rpg. So, that means Westbrook averages more in every stat.
In English class, we are studying a play called Phantom of The Opera. It is about a girl named Christine. Her father was part of the opera, but he died. Before he died, he told Christine that he would send her an angel of music. At the opera there is a phantom that gives Christine music lessons. She thinks that he is the angel of music. But, when he takes Christine to his lair, she takes his mask off and he gets really mad and returns her. He kills some people and Christine realizes that he is evil.
The people of the opera make a plan to catch the phantom, but it goes wrong when the phantom takes Christine back to his lair through a trap door. He lets her and Raoul go because Christine kissed him. The mob was about to get him, but he disappeared.
In English class, we are reading a book called ” A Christmas Carol ” by Charles Dickens.
It is about a very mean, grumpy man who is named Ebenezer Scrooge. He is visited by the ghost of his dead business partner, who tells him that he is to be visited by The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. So far, Scrooge has only been visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past.
During his travels with the Ghost of Christmas Past, he begins to learn kindness. You can tell that he is learning kindness because when he visited himself as an apprentice, he said that he wanted to say something to his clerk.
He said that because Scrooge had had a nice boss, and that made him think of how he was a mean boss to his clerk. If he stays really mean, when he dies, he will have to spend eternity looking at people that he could have helped when he was alive.
By: Ovais Qureshi
Biking and biking down the road, went Ovais.
The brakes said as the bike stopped.
The gears said as the bike moved again.
Houses and houses flew by
As Ovais went faster.
Then, everything slowed as Ovais went up a hill.
Ovais went down the hill.
Said the tires rolling over rocks.
Then up another hill, then down, and WHOOSH again.
He did not use the brakes until,
He got home.
I was inspired to write this poem from when I ride my bike around the neighborhood. I added the sounds to give my readers imagery.
