Sea Otters are my favourite animal. I like them cause they remind me of river otters. Otters help our ecosystem majorly. They eat Kelp, Sea urchins, small fish and other things. Without these creatures there would be mass emounts of Kelp and fish. Sadly Sea Otters are endangered of becoming exstinct due to oil spills and pollution. They used to be very endangered and only around 500 sea otters left. Lots of people wanted Sea otters soft fur. Thanks to lots of shoreline clean ups and less oil spills Sea otters population is getting higher but its still very low.
1. How do you think your year went in grade 6?
I think my grade 6 year went very well. I got a bit worried when I had to switch teachers but overall I felt Ms. Bains is an awesome teacher! The peers in my class were good as well.

When people talk I tend to talk as well.

I learned that the kids who go to school stay at the school for 10 months and only see they`re families for 2 months. I wouldn`t like it if I lived at school. Ms. Bains also tought me that we are on Coast Salish land!
Birds chirping, buzzing bees and the bright shining sun. Spring is my favourite season, I always seem to be happy when this season rolls around. When the sun comes out I use my sun glasses. I have quite a few so I usually rotate which pair I use every day. When me and my parents go to the grocery store we usually buy daffodils. Or some kind of bright coloured flower. The we stick them in a vase on our kitchen table. Whenever I look at then I feel happy! One of my friends has a REALLY big yard so we buy butterfly nets and catch butterflies and feed them lemons or grapefruit. They really like to eat citrusy fruit. Then after we give them food we let them go back into the wild. Spring is my favourite time of year for these reasons.
Year of the monkey......
Chinese New Year Happens every year and each year i'ts a different animal to go along with it like Ox, Monkey and Pig to name a few. Usually every Chinese New Year we go get Chinese food and watch a movie
I like doing activities and projects talking about this cool Holiday. Ever notice how every holiday has its colours? Christmas is red and green, Halloween is black and orange. Even Valentines day is red and pink! Well Chinese New Year is Red and Gold! Chinese new year has lots of really cool things about it!
When I grow up I want to be a Marine Biologist. I feel that marine animals are different from any other kind of animals. What I mainly want to study is Narwhals. Basically Narwhals are whales with horns they are commonly found in the North Pole. If you want to be a Marine Biologist you have to go to school for eight years. I personally think that is a long time to go to school but if it makes me a Marine Biologist then I will do it!!!! Some other things I want to study are Sea Turtles, Dolphins and Hermit Crabs. Although I do love every type of creature that lives in the ocean.
This year I am going to be the Chesire Cat for Halloween. Some of my friends are dressing up as people from Wonderland as well. One of my friends is going to be Alice and her brother is going to be the Door Mouse. Then some of my other friends wanted to join so they are going to be the Queen of Hearts and the White Rabbit. We are going to be trick or treating together and we may all go to my house!!! I am very happy and excited for Halloween because its going to be the best one yet. One of my friends said she was going to have a Halloween party and if I came a bit early she would do my makeup.
One of my favourite things to do is play Animal Jam it is online game and me and my friends love to play it together. On the game you are an animal and you can play games, trade and buy clothes. It is very fun and they have seasonal games. Right now they have a Halloween game that gifts you clothes and items for your den. Your den is basically a house you can decorate and make it your own. There is so much stuff to collect and trade. Trading is the best part. There is a place in Animal Jam called Jamaa Township where everyone just dances and talks. That's the best place to trade. Some people have very fun stuff for trade like party hats or balloons for trade. Animal jam is a fun place to play. If you don't have an account I suggest giving it a try. I love my account because it is fun to play and have fun!!!!!
