Imagine Children's Museum

by Jeremiah,age 8

This museum is my favorite! We found an area that there's only one room that you can play in that is not saved for classes. In that room it is the construction room where there are these really cool blocks.
The connectors are corner pieces and you can build whatever you want, though I'm pretty sure it'd be hard to build a 20 story building with them. My other favorite besides this is the H2O area, which is the water area. It's really fun because you get to play with water and they're working on making it better! Once you come after October 4th you may get to play with the new stuff.  There are also stairs to take you onto the rooftop where there is a huge play area with fun diggers you operate with your hands. This is the best museum ever!

Looking Forward to New Eggs

by Joshua, age 10

I've been waiting and waiting and waiting ever since we've had the chickens. I remember those eggs that we got from the person who bought our 3rd rooster. (Man, they were good...) Well, we're probably going to get at least an egg from Sept. 28 - Nov. 9! I think that the Legbar will lay the first egg because it will normally lay when it's 20 - 26 weeks old, as for the Rhodebar, it should lay when it's 20 - 28 weeks old, but who knows? They like to come up to our back porch and just sit there, probably because we normally give them food.

Legos are very special because they have these little bumps called studs. They can come in many shapes and sizes. This is my latest creation with these amazing building blocks. This is one of my favorite things that I've ever built, it's a super super sled.

I know, I'm sorry that I'm doing another blog post about a website. But this one is a very good one to anyone who likes/loves Harry Potter! This website is called Pottermore!

First it takes you through Diagon Alley to do the necessities before taking you to Hogwarts to get sorted into one of the houses by asking you questions like "Left or Right?" Then, you get a welcome message to your house and you get to start earning house points! Normally you will go to the moments which are basically moments in the book to move stuff or to take stuff that are out of place and put it in your trunk to earn a house point. It only has the first 4 books but getting more! You could also go to the dueling club and duel other students to try and get the higher number by being more accurate. If you win then you earn 5 house points! You may notice that dueling is the fastest way to get house points and you would be right! Then the last thing is potions which is a slow to earn house points. What you need to is get the ingredients to brew the potion then work on it by following the instructions correctly in a time limit, if you finished it correctly and under the time limit then you need to wait for it to be ready (which is 30+ minutes later) and then work on finishing the potion (I've never finished a potion because my fastest cauldron exploded, that's right, EXPLODED!) You try to get house points so later, when it's time for the house cup your house will win! This is the link to my profile:

"The Strange Case of Origami Yoda" Book Review

By: Joshua, the 6th grader

(Image found here)

This book is about the strangest kid in Macquarrie Middle School named Dwight, though when he folded a Yoda out of origami he made it say great advice! A kid named Tommy builds this "case file" as he asks the question, "Is Origami Yoda real?" This case file/book is to answer that question as other kids in the school write about their experiences to help. This book is very funny!
I suggest this book to people about my age.
If you liked this book (Which I did) then there are more books in the series so I'll make a list:

  • Darth Paper Strikes Back
  • Secret of the Fortune Wookie
  • Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling (not in series, though made by same characters/author)
  •  The Suprise Attack of Jabba The Puppett
  • Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue (I haven't read it yet)
  • Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus (I haven't read this one either)
I've read this book multiple times (and it never gets old!)

The New Chickens

by Joshua, age 10

Ugh, more waking up at 6:00 in the morning! Yes, that's right, another rooster. It's because the Light Orpington is actually GUILTY! So we went to a guy who also sells chickens (not the same guy who we bought the 1st ones from) and we bought two 8 week old chickens and hopefully they're hens! Here are the types of the new chickens:

The new chickens! 
The chances of having 3 roosters is 1/1000!
