    Are highlight of the game is that we won. Are team had good passing and nice shooting. we need to be a little bit more focused on the game and we need to stay on our checks.In every sport we do it is always good to have a tournament at the end.

    I thought the basketball tournament went well. Although I thought that the team that lost got a little down after the first period because we were up by so many points. Maybe people would enjoy it more if they were playing people that were there strength level? My favourite part of the basketball game was when everybody was working together and was calling each other for the ball. My least favourite part is when the other team does not work and we are just standing around. One last thing I enjoyed is that we get to work on teams and have our own say in everything. That is what I liked and Disliked of the basketball tournament today

      Thanks for your comments Sydney. Hopefully the games on Thursday will have closer scores.

      Quick Fix:
      – the strength level belong to them = their strength level

    The basketball tournament is really fun because we get to show off our skills. I like doing the tournament because then you get to have a team and learn to work together. My favourite part about having a tournament is we get to play as a team and we don’t just play 1 on 1 and have Mr. Bell watch. Our team[ Sydney, Serena, Kobe. Tyler and me] is doing great so far. Our biggest strategy oh wait I can’t say because then then whole class will know. I think we could work on stealing the ball from the other teams, other than that we are doing great!

    My predictions for the basketball tournament are we will… I mean my team will win the next two games, because…. well I don’t know why but that is my guess. Also I think my team did good for our first game. but I think that we should stay with the checks that we stated with in the beginning. !BASKET BALL!
    🙂 bye

    • Mr. Bell says:

      You are the first to claim your team will win the tournament. I wonder if the other teams will be motivated by your words?

      You had some terrific drives to the basket today Emily! Be sure to use your left hand once in a while too.

    I personally thought the game went well. The only complication was Shace’s absence which made it hard when our team took breaks. One of the highlights I seen was when Jaxon shot the basketball into the hoop at mid-court. Although we played well, I do think we need to work on the strength to pass the ball to other players. I anticipate that there will be plenty of competition through out the next few games and we will have to work together to try and win them!

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Hopefully the competition level will increase with each game to be played.

      Quick Fix:
      – The use of ‘I personally’ is redundant, there is no need for both words to be used because ‘I’ implies your own ideas, as does the word ‘Personally’.

    The highlight of are game is that we won we had hard passes and we played hard

    I like the tournament so far. But I didn’t know who I was checking so I was confused for a little while in the game. Its fun to play basketball in gym. Gabby wasn’t here so me and Kayla had to be on for the whole game. Because Mr.Bell said 2 girls and 2 boys on unless there hurt. We lost though but I hope we win the next one.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Thanks for your comments Cassie – I hope you figured out who your check was!

      Quick Fix:
      – it + is = it’s
      – they + are = they’re (unless they’re hurt)

    The first two basketball games went great! We tried to pass often and give everyone on our team a chance to score baskets. Today the scores we very lopsided though, so on Thursday we will be changing up our lines that go on the court. I have a very strong feeling that we will win the next game and hopefully the whole tournament!!

    • Mr. Bell says:

      It wonderful to hear that your games have been great (despite today’s lopsided score). Hopefully your line combinations will bring you results you seek.
