Panda’s Come to Toronto!


On March 25th 2013 two Giant Pandas from China landed in Toronto, to be kept in the Toronto zoo for 5 years. This day was very exciting for everyone, because Pandas have not been in any Canadian zoos for almost 20 years!
The company that volunteered to ship the pandas to Toronto was Fed Ex. On this date, Stephan Harper, the Prime minister of Canada came to the Piersen Airport to welcome the pandas, and also the ambasiter of China. Fed Ex also volenteered to ship the bamboos to the Toronto zoo, because after all Bamboos don’t grow in Canada,and Pandas do need to eat something.
Stephan Harper,made a welcome speach, that would show the pandas, how special they are. These Pandas are China’s treasures,as Stephan Harper says, and we are very lucky to have them.
The Pandas, Er Shan and Da mao are learning to adjust to there new habitat, and once they are ready, the will be on show at the Toronto zoo.

Essay RECYCLING By: Christine Poudel

Who knew the story behind a small blue recycling bin could be so big?One part of that story that I still wonder about is, “Why do we have recycling bins?”
I did some research, and found out.Listen to this.
We are surrounded by a place that is so beautiful, that we need to take lots of care of.
It is called the environment.One way to take care of the environment is keeping it clean.How can we do that, by recycling, or in other words, using that little blue bin of yours.
Eager to learn more?
Read this essay on recycling!

What is Recycling?

Recycling is the process of re-using materials. Lets say that you used a metal can, and you through it in the recycling bin.The can is taken to a factory, where it is melted,and made into another can. Did you see what just happened there? We did not have to us extra material.
Many environmentalists have thought of ways to re-use items, and I think recycling is there best idea yet.

Different types of Recycling

There are many types of recycling.Although they have different names, they all do the same good thing to the environment.
Not all recyclables go in your recycling bin at home.For example styrofoam.In different places there are companies that collect recyclables.Some take styrofoam. If you ever happen to have some, then recycle it!
Here is anther type of recycling.”Composting.” It might sound very different, but to tell you the truth, it is kind of the same thing.Composting is when you take food scraps, or vegges/fruit peels, and through them in a place where they will-get ready for a big word-”Decompose.”This means that they will rot, and soon become soil.

How does Recycling Help the Environment?

When we recycle,there is less garbage.Before,people would through there recyclables in the garbage, and now they through it in the recycling bin.
Although the population of the world is increasing, i think that if we work together we can make a difference.
Lots of the worlds lands,are filled with garbage, which is destroying the environment, and not only that but the garbage amount is increasing.If you can find something that is recyclable, then please recycle it!

How can you help Recycle?
Fun with Recycling!
I know that going thought the garbage can is not fun, but the next step will be!

Idea’s for being creative with recyclables

Do some awesome artwork
Use recyclables to make musical instruments
Build a castle out of recyclables


Remember:If you through something in the recycling, make sur eit is not wet.if it is, then every thing that was in the recycling will not be recyclable.

Fact: The soil from the decomposed peels are good for growing plants, because the nutrinets from it will give the plant what ot needs.

Why Should We Write?


Writing is part of everyone’s daily life. If you don’t like writing, and get board while writing, then you have a lot to discover. Writing should be a joy to your life. Do writing like it is a game. Make it fun to do. If you write for at least 30 minutes everday, then after some time you come to like writing, and if you already do then that is great! Maybe that could be your carreer, maybe you will be able to
create a best seller, or a Newberry Honor. If that is your dream then you should be proud of yourself, and even if it is not your dream, 30 minutes of writing everyday is good for you.

If you still don’t want to write, and want to know why 30 minutes of writing every day, is good then read this essay.

Writing will help you improve lots of your skills like:

  • ·grammar
  • ·spelling
  • ·handwriting/typing -you can also type it

These skills are also used in school while doing work, more writing means more A+’s! Now, if you write for 3 hours on a weekend and write nothing on the weekdays, it is not going to help. A writer named Jeff Goins said that the secret to great writing is “Don’t write a lot just write often.” So 30 minutes of writing every day is perfect.

You can do any type of writing as long as it is writing/typing. You can write a story, or a report, or even an essay. If
you write a story, your imagination will grow. Here is an example.
Let’s just look at J.K Rowling. She is one of the greatest authors ofall times, and her “Harry Potter” books are all imaginary. J.K Rowling has created a whole new world of magic. But how did she start? By writing a little every day. Her first story was about a rabbit named rabbit. See, every one stats low but if you really believe in yourself you could reach really high standards.
If you write a report, you will get more knowledge. Those entire books about plants and animals give you a lot of information. Start of by taking notes. Then turn that note into sentence of your own.

If you write an essay, you get to tell people how you feel about something. This is usually persuasive writing. In the world there are a lot of writing pieces that are about world piece and saving the environment. Try one.

Doing this will increase your writing level. If every student did this, and we made a graph on the increase of better writing, then the difference over time would be big and better. It might not look like a lot, but it is a super big amount of improvement.

Writing every day also builds up you speed. At school, this usually helps when you are taking notes from a video, or when
the teacher is reading something to you and you need to take notes. Writing fast, but making sure that it is neat is also very important. You would not want to hand in a project that was done in two days but is very messy, would you? Or, one that is super neat but was done a week after the due date? You would want one that was neat and is just on time.

When you do you’re every day writing, try to keep all the pieces together. Once you have a lot, you could make it into book, and once in a while you could look back and see what you have done. It could be called” 30 minutes of writing every day”. This is the part called

Writing every day helps you get creative. Let’s say you wrote a story, a report or an essay, and you really like it. What could you do? Publish it!! And who is the publisher? You! You can publish your writing piece in any way you want. Here are some examples.

  • ·Use some construction paper to make a
    front cover write the story inside and staple everything together.
  • ·If you are doing an essay, maybe you
    could publish it as a little two page book?
  • ·If you are doing a report you can also
    publish it in a little book, but this book can be in any way you like.

Being creative is not hard at all. So, is writing for 30 minutes that bad after all?
