Is Deforstation an Issue Kids Should Worry About

Deforestation is an issue kids should worry about because deforestation is the clearing of forests on a large scale.  It occurs most heavily on tropical rain forest and more than 2,000 of the 3,000 identified plants with cancer fighting properties grown only tropical places and it can help people with cancer and since cancer is a problem that won’t be good.   


If deforestation continues at this rate it will take less than 100 years to destroy all of the rain forests on Earth.  If it continues we all won’t have any air to breath and animals won’t have any air too.  One strategy to reserved tropical forests is to teach farming methods is to not destroy the forests. In ‘shade farming’ certain crops like coffee are grown within the forests without cutting down many trees.  


But you’re still cutting down many trees and you might be using poisonous fertilizer to the forests. I agree to this but you’re still cutting down many trees and what kind of fertilizer are they using?  Deforestation is an issue kids should worry about because more than 2,000 of the 3,000 plants that can cure cancer also it will only take less than 100 years for all of the forests on earth will be gone.  That’s why I think that you should not cut down the rain forests.

Language Arts

Language Arts


Once we enter the classroom we have to put are backpacks and coats in our cubbies then we choose our lunch choice 1, choice 2 ,and choice 3 salad.  I normally choose choice 2 ,because sometimes there’s pizza or hotdogs.   when we’re done with that we usually get our computers then we turn on our computers we then go on Qwerty town where we type and i’m on level 6 lesson one .  After that our teacher will tell us to line up but before we line up we have to have our computer case on our computer after that we grab our folders then we line up except for the people that stay in reading class go on kid biz.  Then when our teacher has instructions we all are quiet once he is done we do what he said.  

Language Arts Class-Groups:

Direct: We are with our teacher and doing the work he gives mostly reading stories.

Collaborative: We mostly make stories about stories.  

Independent: We first do our classwork then we watch the links on the teachers ELA folder once everything is done we can do our homework

End of Language Arts Class: At the end of Language Arts we first shut down our computers plug in our computers in the computer cow then we check agendas then we line up then leave.  Next once everyone is seated we line up again but this time everyone goes because we’re going to special.  Please comment if you enjoyed.

Week 4 Blog Challenge Intruder Drill

Intruder Drill                         



This is how you are prepared for an intruder drill.  First you need to have a plan for example, have a place to meet with your family or neighbors.   A place where you can meet could be at a tree or at the other side of an hill.  You can also hide at a neighbor’s house.  If the intruder finds you, you can ether try to escape or self defense like throwing everything at them that you can get a hold of.  If the Intruder knows where your meeting place is, then you should have another meeting spot.  


Next, If the intruder starts firing then you should all scatter and get to cover. Also if you have a phone call 911.  If you can’t get out then when they are in the building then you should stay quiet and don’t move a muscle.  If they are close to you then try to get out or go crazy for example, scream as loud as you can and throw everything at them,or you can have someone bulldoze through them if you have someone big with you.  Then when the intruder is distracted then you can try to escape.

Finally, if an adult is with you then you should remain silent, because if they give instructions like get out of the building.  You should definitely go nuts and out and not wait for them because there first out of one hundred things or more is to keep all of the kids that are in their responsibility safe and away from danger Also make sure you have an adults with you so they can lead you to safety.  This is how to be prepared for an intruder drill.
