Challenge 10

On the student challenge, questions were given to answer them in order to give back feedback.

Two weeks is not enough time in order to register before the first student challenge because many people may be busy many of the times and not have enough time. A suggestion would be to give more time. In order to subscribe, I subscribed to email. I really appreciate for the headers in the blogging challenge because it was really useful and it helped me out many times. To visit the challenge every week, I went on the actual challenge on the blog. The challenge I found the most useful was challenge number 8 because people can get feedback on their blog and see what people think about what they post on. The challenge that I found the most interesting was challenge number 7 because it showed of how people care of the earth and how we want to save it. Some topics I would like included in future challenges would be to invent an imaginary product and talk about why the product is so special. More tutorial type challenges are needed because this allows more people to understand a certain topic. The ” Visit these posts” were useful because it gave an example of a challenge and it allowed more people to understand a certain topic. Making a cartoon or a comic was interesting and edublogs allowed me to make one. There was not enough chances to visit other blogs and make links with them because people need to post up posts and other things. When classes registered, I think that there was enough specific activities for classes and yes we made global connections. Overall, I am happy to answer these questions and I have really enjoyed having a blog with edublogs.

Rumpelstiltskin Skit

This is a skit I wrote based on the original story of “Rumpelstiltskin”.

Miller: King, my daughter can turn straw into gold!

King: Bring me her immediately! ( soon daughter locked in room with straw).

King to Miller’s Daughter: Turn this straw into gold. If you don’t, you shall be killed!

Daughter: ( Weeps/Cries)

Rumpelstiltskin: What would you give me if I turned this straw into gold?

Daughter: ( sad voice) My ring. ( Rumpelstiltskin turns straw into gold)

King: ( Surprised) ( Takes daughter to 0ther room and says…..) Turn this straw into gold or you shall be punished by death.

Daughter: ( Weeps) ( Very sad).

Rumpelstiltskin: ( Enters) Hello! What would you give me if I turned this straw into gold?

Daughter: ( Sad voice) My necklace. ( Rumpelstiltskin turns straw into gold)

King: ( Astonished) Amazing! ( Puts daughter in other room with a larger amount of straw) If you don’t finish, you shall die. If you do finish, you shall become my wife.

Daughter: ( Weeps/Cries) ( Very Sad)

Rumpelstiltskin: Hello, what would you give me if I turned this straw into gold?

Daughter: I have nothing to repay you with. ( Looks sad and confused)

Rumpelstiltskin: Fine, then once you have your first baby, you shall give me your baby.

Daughter: Uggh, I have no choice. Yes I will do as told.

One Year Later

* Daughter married ( is queen) and has a baby son*

Rumpelstiltskin: Ahh, I see you have your child. Hand him over to me. Give me him!

Daughter: No!!!!!

Rumpelstiltskin: I’ll give you three days for you to discover my name, but if you don’t, the child is mine!

-Servant searches for villager and discovers his name is Rumpelstiltskin, and tells the daughter his name. ( Daughter excited)

3 Days Later

Rumpelstiltskin: Hello, now do you know my name?

Daughter: Yes, is your name Rumpelstiltskin?

Rumpelstiltskin: The devil told you that!

The End.

Happily Ever After!!!!!!!

The island has many activities to offer. For instance, visitors can golf, go to the spa, exercise at the fitness center, or even search for a book at the library. Even more, visitors can have themselves take part in playing tennis, shopping at the local stores, rock climbing, and working on pottery.(Atlantis) (Atlantis Hotel Bahamas-Disney for adults 71)

The Mayan Temple

Tunnel for Mayan Temple

Going to the water park is another exciting activity to do. In the water park there are water slides and river slides. One famous water slide is called the Mayan Temple. The Mayan Temple has a 60-ft. drop from the top to the bottom. Then, as one falls down the long slide the person falls into a tunnel. The tunnel is underground and one can see sharks in the tunnel. Though, there is a glass blocking the sharks from them doing any harm to the visitors. Then, at the end of the tunnel, feet-first the person lands into a small pool. There are also pools to swim in and splash in the water park.(Atlantis)



In the island there are also many restaurants to eat in. Visitors have a variety of choices of restaurants to choose from. For example, one of the restaurant’s name is the Seafire Steak House. A different restaurant is called the Mesa Grill. These are categorized differently because they serve different types of food. For instance some can serve fish and others serve salads. Another example is that the Atlantis also categorizes the restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.(Atlantis)


Cove Atlantis Hotel

Beach Towers Hotel

In this island, all the hotels have different prices. The prices vary. The most expensive hotel is named the Cove Atlantis. The starting price is $1,013 per night. This hotel is very luxurious. It has fine rooms that are great in size. Some rooms have king size beds, which also depends on the type of room one chooses. Many of the rooms have plasma TV’s. Each room is different. Some examples of different rooms is a penthouse or just a normal suite. The bathrooms of the hotel rooms are very spacious and modern with marble floors. Some bathrooms even have double sink. Overall, this hotel is very good looking.(Atlantis)
The Beach Towers hotel is the least expensive hotel in the Atlantis Paradise Island. The starting price is $283 per night. The Beach Towers and the Cove Atlantis have many differences. For instance, in the Beach Towers the rooms are smaller than the ones in the Cove Atlantis. The Beach Tower hotel is also not as modern as the Cove Atlantis. Though, the Beach Towers also doesn’t have as many choices to choose from for different rooms.(Atlantis)

To conclude, I think the Atlantis Paradise Island is a very entertaining place. After all of what I have researched this island sounds wonderful and fascinating. I wish that one day I would be able to visit this place. I have learned so much from this island that I even found out it’s not so cheap. Though, one day it would be wonderful to have a vacation at the Atlantis Paradise Island.

A Memory on the Sea

Imagine stepping on lands that you have only dreamed about, or that you have only seen on television. Amazing, is it not? While it was not enjoyable to wake up at 5 o’clock in the morning to head to the airport, going on board a cruise to Cozumel, the Cayman Islands, and Jamaica was! I spent four distressing hours on an airplane, so I was overwhelmed with releif when my family and I finally stepped foot on Miami. There, we sauntered around Miami’s inviting streets, gazing at the numerous palm trees, until our cruise ship finally arrived. When it did was when all the fun began.

My dreams finally took life when we stopped into the cruise. On the overcrowded deck, my eyes were rewarded with stunning views. Waves pounded the ship’s stern, and birds flew in the distance. The soothing music that was played inside the cruise filled my ears, discarding any remaining memories of being exhausted. When we reached the cabin, my first instinct was to leave my luggage and quickly storm out of the room with my older sister; I was anxious to explore the ship. However, that had to wait because all the members in the cruise were forced to attend a meeting about what to do in case of an emergency. Afterwards, my family and I walked throughout the whole ship. We went up every stair case and every hallway. When we returned to our cabin at night, we found a unique surprise. There were towel animals on our bed!

I was thrilled when we finally arrived at Cozumel; I had been impatient to discover this extraordinary place. As my family and I were driven around Cozumel’s streets, I was surprised by the abundance of greenery and its beautiful beaches. The water was crystal clear, unlike the dark, grey water found on Los Angele’s beaches. My sister and I were delighted. Smiles struck me as I jumped and played in the water. My favorite part of the beach was the activities. I went canoeing, jumped extremely high on a jumper, and built castles with sand. The lovely palm trees at the beach were also memorable. They were tall with long, green branches. Along with the palm trees was a spectacular view. I was able to see our enormous ship docked at the port. When we arrived back to the cruise, we ate dinner. During the whole trip, all the food that went down my throat was mouthwatering. That night I had eaten white pasta with shrimp.

The next day, the sun was shining bright for a day at the beach. The cruise had arrived at the Cayman Islands. The thing I loved most about this place was the water’s transparency. I could literally see my feet through the water! The sand was as soft as a baby’s skin. While I jumped into the water, my sister spent an hour trying to get a tan. Unfortunately, she was overly bronze like a toasted bread. I laugh every time she regrets treating her skin to such extensive sun exposure. That day didn’t last long, though, for my family became tired and longed for some rest.

I used to think that Jamaica was  a flawless country. Boy was I wrong! The streets I walked through were heavy with poverty and many beggars. My dad became aggravated from the constant begging. While I had seen many pictures of Jamaica’s beaches, my family and I didn’t take the oppurtunity to visit them. Instead we spent the whole day at the many shops scattered throughout the island. The souvenirs were unique. My mom and I bought many of them. My favorite one was a half cup that read” My Jamaica vacation was so expensive I could only afford half a cup!”

Eventually, the week came to end. My family and I had to head back home. I dreaded the four-hour flight but, once I realized how much I missed home, I was more than happy to get on board. However, as I now look back to this phenomenal experience, I long to return to that cruise. I hope that I am given the opportunity once again to travel to such amazing places.

An Everyday Hero

Gaby  was born in Chicago, Illinois. When she was young, she moved with her family to many places. After settling in Chicago for ten years, she moved to Mexico. There, she lived with her parents for seven years. However, that changed when her parents’ relationship took a turn; they got divorced. As a result, she moved back to Chicago with her mother and three siblings. Completing school became a challenge, for she was not given enough encouragement to continue an education. Gaby didn’t give up, though, and knew that continuing an education was the correct step to making her life better.

Gaby did not change very much after the divorcement of her parents, except for the fact that at times she wanted to wail. When she she would get home, she sometimes would lock herself in her room, and would get mad. She would get frustrated and think that it was her fault because of her parent’s divorcement. She says, ” I sometimes tried to ignore the problem, but it was difficult.” Other times she would get distracted in class. Eventually, she knew she had to do something to overcome this problem. She said, ” I tried to remain calm and think through my problems. I tried to be persistent, creating goals, and most importantly, achieving them. This was the answer to my problems.”

When Gaby was in her twenties, she decided to go back to visit Chicago with her friend. Gaby’s friends really wanted to have dance classes. Gaby, on the other hand, didn’t feel like dancing, but she was forced by her friend. Gaby fell in love with her dance teacher and she knew that he was the love of her life. Soon, they were going to get married. She wanted to invite her entire family, including her father. She arrived to LA to announce the wonderful news to her dad. She said, ” At the time I announced my wedding, I was overwhelmed with smiles.”

Gaby is now married and is recently pregnant. She has already graduated from the San Diego State University. She hopes to be a successful artist, who will continue creating innovative and unique art. She says, ” I believe that everything happens for a reason.” I have learned a lesson from her life, and I think that everybody should expect the unexpected. Gaby is a very hardworking person; she never gives up, no matter what reason crosses through her life. She’s wonderful and she is always creating new goals for herself, which she always achieves. This is why Gaby is my hero.
