Animal Adventure Comment of the Week

Paige Glass - Age 20 - From UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

If people use pesticides or chemicals to try and get the animals to go away it would probably make them sick and hurt or kill them and that is not what you would want and if you use people to scare the birds away they might come back or when the animals that once lived there came back they would not want to settle because of the human sent in their habitat because it would make the animals think they were not safe because of the human sent.

Miriam - 11 - UNITED KINGDOM

The story continues from this beginning:

Tra suggests to Spec that they set up a group of Idea Seekers to go Holiday caroling with them on their home planet of Machoo. Spec asks Skeeter, Dumonde and Kimma to come and sing with them. But when the neighbors tell them what a good job they've done, Spec takes all the credit and says that he did all the work, even though it was Tra's idea! Is Proud Cloud giving Spec a big head? Can Gratitude Plant Baby remind Spec that everyone helped? Write the rest of the story.

Gratitude hopped onto Spec's shoulder. "Spec, are you feeling alright?" Gratitude asked. "They did help, you know." Spec snorted. "Ha! No they didn't. They left the work to me, as usual!" Kimma stepped forward. "Proud Clouds doing, I expect." Spec shook his head, moaning. "Sorry," he mumbled. "I don't know what came over me. It was Tra's idea. Thanks for helping." "No problem," they all said, smiling. In the distance Proud Cloud ground his teeth and floated off to find a less friendly victim. Write Me A Story

Hailey - 12 - CANADA

The bright, morning sun shone into my lime green room. I sleepily sat up and stretched. A knot of excitement rose in me. Today was the day! Today was actually the day. My class was going to each and every classroom in the school to sing Christmas carols and give gifts of peppermint candy canes to the kids. This is the day in December every 8th grader waits for. Our class had to wear red, green, a scarf, hat and mittens, so we would look like real carolers. I hurried downstairs, rushed through breakfast and before I knew it I was on my way to school. The bus was filled with the excited chatter of the last day before Christmas break.

"Hey, this is gonna be great!" shouted my best friend, Hannah.

"Yah," I said back.

Our teacher Mrs. Gracey handed out the book of Christmas songs when we got in the classroom. All the grade eights partnered up, me with Hannah. Starting with the kindergartens we sang "Frosty The Snowman" and "Jingle Bells". We handed out the candy canes to the younger students. Their excited faces made me feel warm and happy inside. We worked our way up to the 7th grade, finishing with, "We wish you a merry Christmas". My class sang the way back to our room. We went to a Christmas party, only for 8th graders. We finished the day with a cup of warm hot chocolate. The bell rang, and eager kids ran to their bus line. Happily I walked outside... and it started to snow.
