dog leashes

For one of the writing prompts that our teacher gave us when school let out, I chose one were you have to complain about people with long leashes. Here it is: 

I am so tired of when people use very long dog leashes when they walk their dog through the park or anywhere in particular. Here are my two reasons why. 


First off, when I am riding around on my motorized scooter and a long leash gets stuck in the wheel so I crash or have to stop. Also, most of the time they act like it is my fault! It’s not always when your on your scooter, long leashes act as tripwires even when you are walking and they are still as annoying. 


Secondly, when dogs are on long leashes and they are untrained like they misbehave a lot, the owner can’t do much about it with a long leash when they start to do bad things. Lets say they run and knock into someone, you can stop that if you have a short leash. They also sometimes think they can do whatever they want because they feel like they are far enough away from their owner to not get in trouble when they do bad things. 


In conclusion, long dog leashes are bad because they create tripwires and the owner has next to no control over their dog.

Not to kill a deer

For one of the writing prompts our teacher gave us when school let out was to try and persuade your imaginary friend not to go hunting in a deer hunting club. Here is my writing:

Hey, you shouldn’t join that club! I have plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t join the deer hunting club for a passtime.


For one, It is unfair for the deer that you are hunting. They have done nothing against you and you just go and shoot them. Imagine how you would feal if you were just having a normal day at the park or home and suddenly a deer ran up to you and shot you with a gun (this is metaphorical, I don’t think deers can actually do this in real life).You can save deer lives by not joining that club.


And for second, you can just eat vegetables instead of meat. It is not that hard to buy veges at the store instead of meat. Because everytime you eat meat, you are eating a once living creature. And if you don’t want to buy fruit and veg then you can just make yourself a garden at your home for free nutritious food. If you worry about not getting enough iron because you aren’t eating meat there are actually lots of foods(that is not meat) that give you iron like beans, nuts chocolate etc.

Up the mountain

This is something that I did outside of school. I went up the mountain and stayed there for 1 whole day. There is and actual lake up there and also a big mountain range you can walk along. One of the days it was cloudy beneath us and gave everything a very cool blanket of clouds that we could look down upon. We got some pretty good photos and so I have made them into a collage. Here it is:

My goals

In class we are making goals for ourselves for the rest of the year. We had to include a reading goal, a writing goal, a maths goal, a personal goal and a social goal. Here are my goals:

My reading goal is to finish 10 books throughout the year. 

My writing goal is to become better at writing stories told as if the character was seeing it. 

My maths goal is to either be at level 8 or higher. 

My personal goal is to work hard and earn enough money on banker to get lots of free time on Minecraft. 

My social goal is to make at least one more friend.

future self letter

In class we have been doing writing and for part of that we have made a letter to our future self. We wrote a letter talking about what we liked and didn't like right now and the idea is that we will read it at the end of the year. here it is:

In week four we went on our school camp. We did many activities there including jet boating. Once we got back to school we made an advert for one of the activities to put on our blogs. I chose to do my advert on the jet boating. Here is my advert:
