We need new computers

Our school needs new computers! I’m going to give you some good reasons why. I hope I can convince you that we need new computers here at Curie Elementary School. We need the best computers to be the best students.

Totally frustrated with a netbook!

One reason we need new computers is because our old computers don’t always connect to the internet. Many of our computers turn themselves off while we are using them. Another reason our old computers need to be replaced is because when we try to turn them off, sometimes they don’t turn off all the way, and the batteries run out. Often, they freeze in the middle of a project. Losing work slows me, and other students, down and wastes our work time. These days, we use computers for almost everything: writing, research, word processing, etc. We students deserve to have computers that run smoothly.

Our classrooms would benefit from having new computers. Please consider the examples I have presented. I hope you will agree that we are in desperate need of new computers at Curie Elementary School.

Awesome Owls

I think owls are awesome animals. They have thick bodies and strong hooked beaks to eat little animals. They grab animals with their sharp claws or talons. Most of the owls species have feathers on their legs and toes. The owl has feathers covering the beak.

Owls have feathers sticking up on their head that look like ears, but these are not ears! Their ears are on the side of their head.  The feathers sticking up on their head are like satellites and the noise reflects off the feathers and into their ears.

Owls come in different sizes.  For example, the elf owl is only 6 inches long! The largest owl is the great gray owl which is up to 30 inches long and its wingspan is around 5 feet wide!!

Owls eat mice,rats,moles,squirrels and skunks.They also eat insects.They kill the animal with their  talons then they rip it to

shreds. Owls communicate with each other by making “whooo” noises. They tell each other if there is danger, also they ask each other for help in capturing animals that are too big for one owl to pick up!
