More Books At A Library
by Azalea grade 2
Once upon a time I went to a public library and there was only one book. It was about a living fish. I didn’t like it so I left. The next day I went back to the library. Now there were 10 books. It was weird. So I looked around. There were some interesting books. I took some home. I read them all. They were great stories. The library was called Children’s Library. It was for ages 5-8. I’m seven years old. At school they have 100 books. I love to read a lot. I found a bookstore with 1,000 books. But it was for ages 10-20. I went into the store and I got some chapter books.

Mint Canyon Community School is fun because I like Math and Subtraction. I have math class and Excel class and sometimes I have ELD class in a different classroom. I leave my class because I need to get orange books, even my practice book to get ready for Excel class. Next I do math class. It takes a really long time in math class on Tuesdays
Battlefield 4 Video Game Review
– by Gavin, grade 5
Battlefield 4 is a great game. Dice really upped their game when they used the awesome Frostbite 3 System. To start with, the campaign is one of the best campaigns I’ve ever played. Just the gameplay is crazy. The guns, from DMR’s to shotguns, every weapon is great in the campaign. Moving on to multiplayer, it is sick! If you think being able to destroy skyscrapers and crushing bridges isn’t cool, then there’s something wrong with you. I think the game is good for ps3 and Xbox, but there are some bugs. In the campaign allies can go through walls to get to checkpoints. Multiplayer is fine, no bugs that I’ve seen so far. I think the price is expensive, not considering that every video game is going to be $70. At least you get a $5 discount. Back to what I was saying, it is a good price for the game play. Oh yeah, by the way, Battlefield 4 is $65. Anyway, I’ll give this game a 9.5/10. Remember to look for my next Call Of Duty Ghosts review…Bye!

My Trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific
By Sariah, grade 4
When we went to the Aquarium, I saw Clown Fish. My mom and dad, who came on this trip, told me lots of cool things. My friends learned a lot of cool things from my mom and dad. We saw Sea Horses swimming next to me. I was so excited to see Sea Horses! Clarissa and I saw eggs from sharks and they were in a different tank. My mom said that the mom shark leaves. Inside of the tank, under the eggs, there were signs that said when they’ll be born. When we got to feel the jelly fish, it was creepy, but it was cool. What I loved the most was this big fat fish. The mouth was big! It can eat bigger fish than him! We walked by stinky seals. They were only eating their lunch. Some were big and some were small. We had a lot of fun there. I would like to go next summer!
Ronald McDonald House
By Elijah, grade 4
The two things I love about Camp CARE is having fun and going on field trips. My favorite field trip was to the Ronald McDonald House. At the Ronald McDonald House, we cleaned, we played, and we explored the house where the children were staying. We also learned that they have lots of toys to distract them from the pain. I’m glad I got to help the children. I had a good time.
