Hi, my name is Dafna and I’m in fourth grade. Welcome to my blog. I will be talking about things that happen in school, activities, and current events. Here’s a little bit about me. I have twin 14-year old brothers who look nothing alike! One is short and one is tall. My mom has two jobs. She is an archaeologist and an art conservator. My dad works on a news show called Politics Nation.
These are a few of my hobbies. I like movies, and my favorite movie is The Avengers. My favorite T.V. show is Doctor Who. I like movies because they make me happy. If I am feeling sad watching movies makes me calmer. I just love the way movies connect to me sometimes.
I like to play tennis and soccer. My favorite soccer player is Messi. I also like Pogba and Ronaldo. My favorite tennis players are Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams. I play on a travel soccer team. My team is called Lazio. Usually I play tennis in the summer in Michigan or sometimes with my Dad on the court.
In school my favorite subject is writing. I like writing because I like using my imagination and I like making things up. It’s also because sometimes when I am reading a book I feel like I ’m in that world. Like if I am reading Peter Pan, I can actually feel the wind rushing through my face when Peter Pan is flying.
