A couple of weeks ago I go a lego captain rex keychain. I know people who have taken it but I did not know how to. The reason I wanted to do this is so I could remove his head and put his battle armer on him. So after so searching I found one way to do this on flicker. My dad and I were not strong enough to do this though so after some more searching I found this way that was a lot easier way that I could do.
I love legos, especially minfigures. My friends and I traded good ones for better ones. It was great. Some times I wish I could make my own lego figures, I thought I would make one and put it on a sticker. I tried to make a outline for one but could never get it right. Then while searching google for legos I found this picture:
It’s pretty good and I like it. I also found this guy who prints strait onto a lego brick so you can send in a design to him and he uses special equipment to put it on the lego. The name is CJ Graphics.
This is a paper I wrote for school.
iPhones Enhance Learning
By: Alexander Fryer
Some schools are buying iPhones for students hoping to enhance learning. Apple came out with the iPhone in 2007 and is in its third generation.1 Digital learning consultant Wesley Fryer comments, “Modern cell phones offer a variety of capabilities, which are being used effectively by educators in different schools to support curricular learning objectives and boost student achievement.”2
For example, you can use a free service by Poll Everywhere to conduct a classroom poll. Thirty people can respond to and vote on your poll by texting their information in. There are many useful applications that you can use for learning such as: a graphing calculator, flash cards, and a dictionary. The iPhone can also be used for converting measurements, and taking notes in class. The camera is a useful tool for recording data. There are hundreds of educational applications being created each day.
The iPhone has a built-in iPod. This means that you can watch videos or listen to recorded lectures as podcasts. “Lectures are the worst possible learning format,” said Associate Dean Brian Brooks, according to the Columbian Missourian. “There’s been some research done that shows if a student can hear that lecture a second time, they retain three times as much of that lecture.”3 This will require teachers to record their lectures, but if a student will remember and retain the information it will make the extra work pay off with better test scores.
As a result there are many educational applications, and you can remember lectures three times better the second time. So, contact your school principal and technology director and tell them that you want iPhones in school!

At my school in english are curriculum is The Lord of the Rings and we just read the part when they meet Tom Bombadil in the Fellowship of the Ring. We had to do a project on one of the scenes and make a miniature on it, I did the scene when they looked into their room at Tom Bombadil's house. This is the passage describing the scene and pictures of my project are at the bottom so you can see how I did:
Its walls were of clean stone, but they were mostly covered with green hanging mats and yellow curtains. The floor was flagged, and strewn with fresh, green rushes. There were four deep mattresses, each piled with white blankets, laid on the floor along one side. Against the opposite wall was a long bench laden with wide earthenware basins, and beside it stood brown ewers filled with water, some cold, some steaming hot. There were soft green slippers set ready beside each bed.

I was at my coin club meeting and they give away a door prize and this time I won.
This is a essay I wrote for school.
I came to Chisholm in the third grade so I don’t have as many memories as others. My best memory is the first day of school in Mrs. Fitzgerald’s class (or Mrs. Fitz. As I like to call her.) I was in a school three times bigger than my old one and did not know a single person in it. All I could think was, “Wow!”
I got to know a couple of people the first day. I know you aren’t supposed to judge books by their cover, but I couldn’t help eyeing a couple of people for friends. I mostly looked at how they acted around the teacher and other kids. Looking at kids I found two, Hadley and Landon.
Lunch was weird and at recess I took a big breath, plucked up some courage and thought, “I have to make a friend sometime so it might as well be now.”
I walked up to him, he wasn’t with anyone; perfect. We said “hello” and then I started to see if we had anything in common. First I asked him if he liked Star Wars. He did, so we started talking. Soon we also learned that we both liked Legos too. Hearing the bell ring we went to go line up. We talked a little more inside but the next day at recess we went and played soccer. The field wasn’t fancy, just two goals and a field with a ball.
That is when I became friends with Landon, he always played soccer. Hadley and Landon knew each other but weren’t really friends. Landon is more into sports and Hadley is more into academics. I am kind of the merging point between them.
We all got to be friends and now almost three years after that we are still friends. Over the years new people have joined our little “club” but we were the first people to join it: Hadley, Landon, and me.
This last week I had the chance to go to a coin auction. There weren’t that many people there so I get to get pretty good deals on two pennies. They both cost 1$ which is a good deal because one is worth 5$ and the other one is worth 3$. That may sound crazy but they have never been in circulation, in good condition and are both pretty old. Here is a picture.
To here more about me and coin collecting read my post from April 5th.
I am a coin collector. I have been collecting state quarters for awhile and even started collecting pennies. But when I went to the local coin place I started all over again. I bought The Red Book which has every U.S. coin ever made in it. It has information about all the rare ones and how much each coin is worth depending on how good condition it is in. I learned where everything is in the book and memorized which dates are rare and which ones I need to look for in my change. Coin collecting is something that you can do for a long time and enjoy it.
I just finest the book the 39 Clues, The Maze of Bones. There are ten books in this whole series and the cool thing is that all of them are written by all different authors so you get a feel for a different witting styles. The first book is written by Rick Riordan who wrote the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. If you have read the Artemis Fool books, another good series, it is a lot like that. I t is about two kids who go on this big clue hunt to become the most powerful person in the world. If you read the first two pages you will end up reading the rest of the book and the whole series.

Lately, I have been listening to Brisinger on my iPod. When my mom or dad ask what I am listening to they always laugh when I tell them I am listening to a book. I think I can go thought it faster listening to it than reading it. I think listening to a book rather than to listen to music. I wonder what book I am going to listen to next?
I am a star wars fan.
I love star wars so I found this very interesting and you will probably to. I know about wikipedia but this is different. Wikipedia does not have a lot about star wars so that is why (for all the star wars lovers) they made Wookieepedia. Wookieepedia is almost the same in every except wookieepedia is all star wars information. I hope you will enjoy this website.
I hope you are star wars fan to.
