Main Stars: Help at home by picking up 1 or 2 new chores.

I am starting to take the dishes out of the dishwasher for Mom and digging coal for Grandad. I didn't take any pictures yet, but I will sometime.

Main Stars: Visit 2 blogs from the other classes in your syndicate and leave 5 or more POSITIVE and CONSTRUCTIVE comments.

I left about six  comments when I was at home, and that computer did not take screenshots. Luckily I could find some of the posts I commented on, and take a screenshot of them:

Top dog

This week, we did a financial project called 'Top Dog'. It involved thinking of where to put the dog, choosing a breed and buying stuff for him. For this project, we had to make a copy of the 'Top Dog Pooch Sheet'. Then we had to follow the steps of updating the pooch sheet. Here is mine and Reilly's:

Our dog was a Parson Russel Terrier, so we named him Scruffy. We had to figure out which kind of things we had to buy for Scruffy, like a leash and collar. Here is what we bought:





For grooming, I found a site for NZ and chose the Gold Groom.

For the holiday kennels, I found a site and chose 'Small Dog' because Parsons are small.
Then we did food. We clicked a link in the process, and calculated our food. We chose 1/2 cups of kibble and 2 large biscuits, and the energy was good enough for Scruffy.

Blackface writing

Main Stars: Write, draw or create something that interests you and explain why

For this Main Star I chose art, because you can create feelings in a way that words can't. I suggested to put me and Jimmy's large spray-painting in the children's ward at the hospital, so that kids who like dinosaurs and aircraft will feel better. I hope that people will like our art, because they took a lot of time to make.
