When I grow up...
When I grow up I want to be a zookeeper at either a Reptile, Amphibian
be cause I really like animals but my favorite types are Reptiles and
amphibians. I would be happy to work at just a zoo but I would
be at least in charge of one reptile or amphibian if not I would
probably want to work with... ... marine animals! One other thing
I just thought of that I would like to be is a Biologist with
marine animals our ... ... Platypuses they are one of the coolest
in the world I think! One of my Best friends, Kaitlin wants to be
Detective, or an Elephant trainer, but I think she should be a
because she's really funny! Another one of my best friends
Adrienne wants to be an artist and an author. She writes really
good stories and she is really good at drawing too! Another one
my best friends Samantha wants to be a veterinarian and a super star
hockey player! Samantha is really good in hockey and she’s really good
with animals too! My other friend Nadia wants to be a
teacher and a world class musician she’s really good, I call her the
mini girl Mozart! And she’s really, really, really smart to and
I do say so myself when she's a teacher she's going to be a really good
one! Sonali, another one of my friends wants to be either a
lawyer or a dentist. I think she would make a good dentist, child
dentist because if she was going to pull one of a child's tooth I’m
pretty sure that she would be able to either make them laugh to
stay calm or calm them down by talking quietly. I also think
Sonail would make a lawyer because in class if we have a problem
she’ll find out who should get in trouble! One of my other
friends Danica wants to be a Fashion designers. I think she would
be a really good one because she has the best sense of style!
Julia wants to be a lawyer too I think she would be really good at it
too! Another one of my friends is Madison she wants to be a
Doctor and I think she would make a really good child Doctor because
she’s really kind and nice, I can just hear it now “” Calling Dr.
Madison to emergency””!! Olivia wants to be a Doctor or a
Computer Engineer I think those are two very good jobs for
Emily wants to be a hair stylist and have her own salon; she’s really good at doing hair and at giving manicures!

This year, for my class's end of the year trip, we get to go to Marsh
Lake! I'm pretty sure we get to pick who we sleep with ( I hope
we do because I really don't want to have to sleep with someone I don't
know too well!) but I'm almost positive we get to pick. I'm
sure I'm going to sleep with Adrienne but I don't know yet if anyone
else is going to. If we do decide to I'm going to ask Adrienne if
Julia can sleep with us! Our class is going to be there the
12,13 and 14 and the next day (the 15) we get out of
school! Here in Whitehorse we get out I think it’s 2 or 3 weeks
before some schools in Winnipeg and Toronto. But we also start
school 2 weeks before them ; we have to start school in August, August
24 or 25 to be exact! But back to camping it’s going to be so
awesome ! A different grade 5/4 class got to sleep over in the
school last friday I can’t decide witch one would be more fun;
leaning to camping at Marsh Lake, but when you get to sleep over at the
school you can go anywhere you want in the school and not get in

Last year I went to Vancouver it was very lush and it
rained a lot. I also went to the ocean there, it was very
beautiful and there were lots of starfish as well seals.
Vancouver has meny malls, almost all of them have escalators and they
all have food areas where you can find restaurants like A&W,
Macdonalds and lots more. I also went to the PNE, it is a huge
park and it has lots of great rides. I went there on Halloween
and there where lots of haunted houses, my favorite was the Asylum of
Tare because you had to run through a long tunnel and it was
black and people would jump out and scare you half to
death. There were also many other rides and stores.

Less is known about Yukon plants than is known about the
birds. And very little is known about the birds.
People used to and still say that there are no poisonous plants in the
Yukon, but that’s just a myth. There are some very interesting plants in
the Yukon; like the crocus, the buttercup, the spruce tree, the birch
tree and lots more. My favorite is the cranberry because it
tastes and looks good. In the Yukon we also have dandelions, did
you know that you can use dandelion leaves for salad and you can use
the milk to cure a cold, but I forgot what it was, I think it was a sore
throat or something like that.
Did you know tha the First Nation people used I think birch tree sap to chew on as gum and medication, they also used the
bark to make a tea that would cure a disease or cold.
Most plants die in winter and grow back in spring but in
the Yukon some of the plants stay alive all year round, isn’t that
The crocus, this plant, I believe, only grows in the
northern hemisphere. It is a purple plant, it is also one of my
favorites because it’s poisonous and its beauty that comes for a short
time in the spring. It also grabs my attention because of its
beautiful yellow center which usually smells a little bit like damp
A very interesting plant is the classic spruce tree, which has
been used for Christmas since the beginning of time. It has a
beautiful smell that fills the woods every year, with the smell of new

Lots of people in my class have to get braces, one of my
friends already has braces, but she is probably getting them off in
June. I have to get braces on June 2nd, I hope it does not hurt to get
them on, my friend says it does not, so I guess I will have to trust
her. She says it hurts a bit a few days after you get them though. I
am kind of anxious to get braces and kind of not.
When you get
braces they give you a list of foods you cannot eat, that is one thing
that is bad about braces. These are some things you cannot
eat: popcorn, sticky candy, caramel, hard crust and much more.
get braces they also give you a special tooth brush , water bottle, wax
and some other things.
When you are using the special brush you have to
stick it under your braces and then brush, I think it would take
quite a long time. After you get your braces off you have to wear a
retainer to keep your teeth in place, but after a while you do not.
you get braces you usually get to pick the colors of your elastics, my
friend says I should get yellow and orange so it looks like summer,
because I will be getting them in the summer.

From March 1st to March 11, I participated in the Arctic Winter
Games. They were held in the Kenai Peninsula area. I was in
curling. It was fun. On my team there was: Chelsea (skip),
Sarah (third), Kelly (second) and me (lead). We came in fourth
place and there were five teams.
We stayed at Soldatna High School and we slept in bunk beds. The
opening and closing ceremonies were really awesome! There were
dancers, singers, people that spoke about how great it was to have
these games in Alaska and best of all, while walking in, we were
projected onto these huge screens! It was so much fun!
The next day, the curlers (there was around forty of us) were bussed to
Homer. It was a two hour bus ride! We would spend two hours
on the bus there, curl, have supper and take a two hour bus ride back
to Soldatna. We saw the Augustine volcano that was puffing away
in the sunlight! They had changed a hockey arena into a curling
rink! The curling/hockey rink was on the spit. Homer never had
even heard of the game of curling, so you could see why they didn’t have a
rink. They even asked the head official if they needed skaters to
take messages back and forth between ends! Silly!
The first couple of days, you can’t guess what they were feeding
us. It was mostly stuff that I couldn’t even name! It
tasted like plastic! We had to walk for ten minutes before we
came to the school with food. That’s when we decided we weren’t
coming back. Then they started bringing out fresh fish from the
ocean but we didn’t know because we didn’t come back. The people
in Homer started to open up their fridges to us and brought : lasagna,
sandwiches, spaghetti, pizza, lots of fruit and a couple
desserts. It was delicious.

There was a little caterpillar named John. He wanted to be a hero, but
every one laughs at him. Years after, when he was a butterfly, a colony
of crab spiders came. They ate many caterpillars and butterflies.
Then the butterfly knew that this was his chants to become a hero.
There was a group of them how lived. When one of them was on watch he
saw that a bird ate one of the spiders. He told every one. They knew
that the bird would also eat them. Then he thought’’ maybe they could
scare them away’’. He tried many things, but none of them sounded right.
After a long time he found the right sound. He made it louder and
scared them away. They finally liked him. After that he was the king of

My Family are Mathematical Maniacs
One Monday morning I
woke up to find my mom telling me how much time I had to: brush my
teeth, have breakfast, and catch the bus. Everybody in my family are
smart except, me I don't get it, I think I was taken home by the wrong parents.
I’m off to school, it will be another
miserable day for me because we have a test today and I didn’t even study for
it. After a long
exhausting test I am finally done, it wasn't my fault that I
didn’t know 1.1 was the same as 1.10 well I flunked another one of
those weird tests. My
brother loves school, he thinks tests and quizzes are fun to do, he
freaks me out sometimes.
Another miserable day for me because I:
flunked a test, got sent to the office, did I mention I almost
missed my bus and I came to my parents fighting over math
questions... what a great day! I’m able to get to my room before
they saw me, after a mathematical supper my parents asked me how school
was. I told them I flunked a test, got sent to the office and I almost
missed my bus; they told me that I was grounded once again. Life
never changes, I am always grounded; the only person that gets to go to
his friends' house is my nerdy little brother.
Today my mom was not the same, she didn’t even tell us what we were going to do, she just got up and
made coffee. I got up, got on the bus, and went to school. Today at school
we had a quiz on math and wouldn’t you know it, I aced the quiz, everyone
thought I cheated so I had to redo the test I aced. I guess my
parents gave me smart powers or something. I told my parents that I
aced the test and they gave me permission to go to my friends'
house. I like being smart. The next morning I got up to hear my
parents shocked and yelling ”An A+”. They thought that they were
reading the wrong report card they couldn’t believe it. I knew at that
moment two years of grounding was finished. After school I waited for
my nerdy little brother; he did not look happy when he got off the bus,
I asked him what was wrong and he told me he failed an important test,
I felt so bad because my parents were going to ground him big time. I
thought of a great idea. I would tell my parents he failed because I was
bugging him all night.They fell for it and we both got two weeks of
grounding, he thanked me so much, I said to him “you owe me big
time” and he agreed.

First off with the . . .
The spiting spider is one of the world’s slowest spiders,
but it does not need that special feature because it only spits at its
The jumping spider can jump from place to place in a flash. It
eats the same food as other spiders, but often the faster the prey and the
tastier it is and that is no challenge for the jumping spider.
ROSE HAIR TARANTELLA
The rose hair tarantella, and many other species of tarantellas
around the world, have poisenous hairs all over them. And those who own
them must clean the cage with an oxygen mask and a pair of yellow
. . . and that’s all for today folks!
