Wowser! I didn’t know about tag games in blogs — tags around the world like a relay game. This tag game started with a new blogging challenge post (here also). Then Mrs. Krebs class tagged us in their blog. If you read her post you’ll learn what a meme is. I think of it as a tag game whereby the person who is it, tags someone, who then is “it” with the original person. The tag continunes around and around. How far will this meme about personal pride travel?
Describe one of the things you have done in life, that makes you glow with pride.
Our last period group of students collaborated in a Google Docs to create their descriptions of what makes them glow with pride:
I am very proud of my self for pitching in softball. The reason why I am proud of myself is because it is something I have not done before, therefore it is very new to me. I have never tried it before. I am pretty good at pitching so that is another reason why I am very proud of myself. I really super proud of myself because I am the youngest pitcher on my team and I am one of the best on my team and I love to do it too!!!
I am proud of my wrestling gold metal. When I was standing on that top block with 2 others looking at me and all the others looking at me, it was hard to continue, but I had people cheering me on so I began to go, and I had to win so I would not let them down. I won.
I am proud because on my test I scored a 46 improvement on my test. Next time I plan to get at least +20 improvement on my test. Another thing I am proud of is swimming fast. I can probably swim as fast, like 8 meters in 20 secondsI am really proud of that because I can swim fast.
At first I did not know how to make fry bread and now I do. I just tried and I did well the first time and it was so good. I am proud because now I can cook for my family a traditional food. My family thanks me and I like that a lot. I will make it all the time with the compliments they give me.
I am proud to play video games on my playstation2.
When I do my mom’s job sometimes like I did yesterday, and when her boss showed up, I was like hey don’t I get some money I did half of her job. She made me re-stack the pop in the door where you get all the pop and juice and tea. So her boss gave me like $20 just because I did half of my mom’s work.
I am proud of that I am a fast runner. During the Spring of 2010, I was in Cross Country. I would always make it to the races, and I would always take second or third place. Then one time I got in eighth place, but that’s because it was against seventh and eighth graders, and plus I still had fun! Although I never took first place but I think I am still a pretty good runner! I become a better runner just by playing tag! So that’s what I am proud of myself for doing! 😀
I helped my classmate because someone was going to make him run in to the wall. I said STOP THAT’S NOT NICE!!! I said to my classmate, “Here let me help you. Where are you going? He said “to my room.” I am proud I helped my classmate.
I’m proud of being a sister. I can help my little sister and play with her. I can also bug my brothers. I can also play video games with my brother, but they always win.
I’m proud of me because I’m a good lawnmower. When I was little my mom made me mow lawn over and over again so I could help out with stuff around the house. So every month I mowed lawn.
I am proud that I am a Indian because we are tough, brave and I even represent my family by Indian dances at ceremonies at different towns. I am proud being the only sister because I have a lot of brothers, and they take care of me when I am in trouble. They are always there to help me with any thing like basketball and Indian traditions.
I’m proud that I can play the guitar. I can play “Smoke on the Water” sometimes, but you can get blisters. I play it after school (but not all the time) and on the weekends.
When someone spends the night we like to play video games.We stay up all night playing video until we fall as sleep.One time we played the for one hour.We really liked playing video games.We went to my house for four weeks.This past weekend I played my own game. I am proud I can play at video games.
I glow with pride when I realize that I am still a learner. I am proud that I chose to return to college to finish my teaching degree even though I was thirty years old! It’s never too late! It was not easy, but I finished my teaching degree and then later earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. The most important thing I learned is that we all can learn, even if we do so at different rates and in different ways. In fact, we are smart in different ways. I am also proud that I still learn everyday, such as learning the technology that kids use today so we can learn to use technology in powerful ways that help the world become a better place. I am proud that I work with students who also want to learn every day.
