Pet Enclosed

Amy
My Creature is:
An Emperor Penguin



Some things I needed to consider about my creature:
I need a lot of water,  I need two sets of pools one for food and one for playing in. In the food pool he has to jump in to it  to get the food out, I need a slip and slide, I need space for it to explore.



My enclosure has these special features for my pet:
One pool in the corner with a slide and the other in the middle with fish in it, I have put a sign in front of the food pool saying food pool/fish pool I have made a land space that is 50 cm by 70 cm.



What I am pleased about:
I am pleased about is how well the bed went and the space that there is. The way that the treadmill went was great and my friend Makayla gave me the Idea to paint buttons on top of the treadmill. We have these things called B.L.P and that stands for building learning power and what I used the most is my planing muscle and my noticing muscle.



What I have found tricky:
It was really hard to make the igloo and then stick it to the platform. But all so it was hard to make something and then hot glue gun it together.



What I would like to improve:
how the igloo went because it was really hard to put it all together.

Gold Fish


Dear Owners

I know I am not the best pet but don't blame me. You are the ones who bought me. Now when I am done writing this I will not remember because you might not know but goldfishes have short term memory. But that does not matter to me. Every day the same old bowl, the same old stuff going round in the same pattern. If you don’t get what I mean then I’m sad, lonely, bored I want a friend a bigger bowl maybe a fish tank some different food. When you bought me I thought It was going to be a new life a better life but it just feels like I am still in the pet shop. MY LIFE IS SO BORING!!! You walk past me every day I can hear what you are saying.  “go feed you fish” “do you care about your fish?” “mum I do care” and stuff like that. Not Fun! Please please please that is all I want. I will be so happy if you get it all I am asking for, by the way if you can you read this you might think I’m greedy because I want all this but if you do think that just don’t flush me down you know what (that means the toilet). Just leave me to have a boring horrible life,  I don’t care I was just asking.

The Haunted House poem

The Haunted House
I see  
I smell  
I hear  
I feel  
I taste  
I think  
haunted-house.jpg
A Creepy House With A Horrid Face With a Creaky Door And Cracked Windows
A Foul Stench Attacks my nose
A Horrid ghost Quietly whispering Sweet nothings
A Whisk Of Wind Runs through my soul
Hurricanes Of Dust rolling in my mouth

A Spooky Ghostly Family Live Here!
