Title: Are cats better pets than dogs or are dogs the real deal?

In my opinion I think dogs make better pets than cats and here's why.

Cat’s have sharp nails- In my point of view dogs are better pets than cats because cats get fed up with some people sometimes and when they do they start to scratch the owner. When cats scratch it’s pretty hurtful, but on the other hand some people think that cat’s scratching is better than dogs biting which is absolutely true but why would someone buy/adopt a dog that is very harmful when they know family like to visit. For example, if my cousins and aunty’s like to visit or sleepover why would I buy a pet that will harm/bite them? and if I did adopt a dog that was harmful I would keep them outside in the backyard with a fence to keep them from coming out. Just like when my family had two dogs and my sister was older so the dogs were allowed to stay inside but when I was born they were taken outside; which was really sad for my sister. This is one point on why I think dogs are better pets than dogs.

Jumping around and breaking environment- In my perspective cats like to jump around and when you're not looking they like to jump in places where you don’t want them to, but if you had a dog the dog will just sit somewhere and walk around without breaking anything. For example my friend from Church had a photo of her and her friend. She really cherished this photo and she also had a cat. One night she went to take a shower but when she came out the cat got startled, jumped onto the table where the picture was and the picture just fell and shattered everywhere. My friend was very upset and didn’t want her cat anymore. This is another reason for why Dogs are better pets than Cats!

Quietness and safety-  Some people (mostly old people that live by themselves) buy/adopt a pet to keep the m company and safe. Some people buy/adopt cats but in this situation the top pet on my list is a dog. I think a dog is the best option because when dogs see people that they are not familiar with they like to bark which is really loud but when cats meow
it isn’t very loud. For example my neighbour lives with her daughter and grandkids but when she used to live by herself she adopted a dog for safety reason and every time the dog would bark she would check outside just to make sure everything is fine and safe. On the other hand some think that security lights help better for this situation. Therefore in this situation pets are better because the security light could stop working and it’s just a light what if the owner of the house was sleeping how are they supposed to know that there's someone out side. Also if their sleeping they could use one of their senses which is listen to hear for the dogs bark. This is the last reason for why I think dogs are better pets than cats!

Surely by now you shall understand why Dogs are the real deal when it comes to not being hurt, not breaking any environment, and why dogs are the best options when it comes to safety and if you need someone or even something to play with!

Rm 8 Reflection!

On Monday 12th of June Room 7 had to go into Room 8 because Miss Ashley had a meeting. We learnt how Coca- Cola was made. I learnt that Coke is 127 years old, it was called coke because it had an type of cocaine in it that made you go crazy and it was removed in 1903, Coke is made out of 86% of water which we could get for free and also is carbonated water, the person who made Coca-Cola was a colonel in the Confederate army and last but not least coke invented the 6 pack aren't you saying wow? (WOW) After all of that learning it was time for a Kahoot Quiz! I really had fun with my neighbours (Rm8) and can't wait to have another fun time with them! 
Here are some photos:

We Made Banana Bread!

We Made Banana Bread!

Today in the middle block we made banana bread! First Miss Ashley made me and Hevani go to the staffroom and get some pots and forks. We were like turtles but rabbits at the same time. We found one pot and 4 forks and took it to class. When we walked in the class our group (Grace, Edith) were mashing bananas. We sat down and helped our group. Miss Ashley took Grace out of the classroom and I went with them to the staff room. Me and Grace mounted 3 blocks of butter in the microwave and took it to the classroom. Each group had to pour the butter into the banana mixture bit by bit. I done the butter for my group. Once the butter and banana were all mixed together we went to Miss Ashley and she helped us with the next part. 
  • First Hevani poured 3 cups of flour into the mixture.
  • Then Grace Poured in 1 cup of sugar.
  • After that Miss Ashley added some vanilla extract and baking soda. Edith also cracked one egg into the mixture.
  • Then we chose from white chocolate and dark chocolate and added them in. Me and Edith chose both while Hevani and Grace chose dark chocolate (BORING).
Once we finished adding all of the ingredients it was time for me to mix it all up.

It was all mixed up and we chose to make banana muffins and we put it in the oven. Once it was baked it was time to eat! It was really delicious and it was really filling.

Fidget spinners are the best!

Why Fidget spinners are the best!

I am for fidget spinners being in classrooms for kids with ADHD and kids that like to fidget with things.

I think they should be allowed in school because it doesn't make noise and it's better then playing with something that does. When you spin it, it doesn't make that much noise unless you don't clean it and it gets rusty. It also is good because it makes less noise than a fidget cube. For example a fidget spinner can't make much noise but a fidget cube has switches and can distract others. This is one reason why I think fidget spinners should be allowed.

Angry, nervous, and other good distractions that a fidget spinner can give you. It helps you when you're nervous and when your stressed, also if your bored and you just want to fidget. For example when your getting a flu shot you could spin it to get your mind of things. This is the last reason of why I think fidget spinners should be allowed in the classroom.

Surley by now you should understand my perspective and what i think about fidget spinners.
