My topic: Pocket Money

Kids should get pocket money.

Kids should get pocket money for many reasons.

If you earn pocket money for doing jobs, it teaches kids that when you get older you need to work for your money. When you work you earn money for the hours that you do at your job. When you are a kid, it’s good to do jobs now, then later when you get older you can be good at what you do now. Kids learn the value of money if they work for the money.

lt teaches kids the value of money. For example $5 buys a loaf of bread and a bottle of milk or a $5 bag of lollies. When you save your money you can buy food for your family and not waste your money on junk food and lollies. You can get a treat once in a blue moon, but you should be sensible with your money. Teaching the value of money is important.

It helps kids learn to save for thing they can't afford yet, because that’s what you do when you are saving up to buy a home, food and beds. So when you save money you can put it towards what you need for your home. If you have good saving habits when you're young, you have good habits when you're older.

Kids should get pocket money for doing jobs and should know the value of money for when they are older.

Pet Enclosure

My Creature is a Black headed python.
Some things I needed to consider about my creature:
It has razor blade teeth and it can constrict you - constrict means it can choke you.
Black headed pythons can swallow you up whole. They grow up to 5-10 ft in length.
They have no venom and it hurts if you get tagged by a Black headed python.
A Black headed python needs to have some food,  the python needs a pool to cool it down. The bird is for it to play with, there is a little door for you to feed it and be safe when you are feeding it. The Black headed python has a little log and a tree to climb.
My enclosure has these special features for my pet:
A door that opens up and a little door at the top of the enclosure so you can feed it and a fake bird at the top of it so it can play.
What I am pleased about:
My pet enclosur is coming along good.  I was really absorbed in my work.
I have got a little bit distracted but I got it done.I like the tree I made for the snake.
What I have found tricky:
Getting the hot glue to stick and not getting hot glue on my fingers.
What I would like to improve:
I would like to improve my project by not using cardboard and using wood instead for safety.

I was happy with my enclosure and how it came out.
The enclosure I made is a good enclosure.

 This is a presentation about Keas that I did in my class, room 18. Here are a couple of facts for you.  Keas like to steel food  from people in cars and Keas are native to New Zealand. Another fact is Keas are green and black.

Art blurb

The koru in the kea represent my family.  There are 4 people in my family (mum, dad, my little sister and me).  
In the background is a mighty mountain with a river sweeping through it. The lonely kea is perched on an old tree.
