Here are some suggestions for the book Cosmic for teens and their parents. Hope you enjoy!

Don’t give your child too many limits or they will not enjoy themselves. One example is not letting them watch TV for more than thirty minutes.

You do need your child to do some chores to show them responsibility and give them some allowance for what they did.

Don’t let your teen talk you into something that’s wrong, like letting them stay two hours past their curfew. If you do not know where your teen is going, you need to find out because they could be going somewhere dangerous.If your teen is a girl, she usually wants to go shopping. Do not let her buy all the clothes because your teen needs to learn to pay on her own.

A TV in your room varies from parent to parent, but if you do let your teen have a TV in her room, make sure she has limited with it and doesn’t take advantage of what she/he has.

Finally, do not let your teen eat too much junk food. They could become overweight and irresponsible with food.

These are some tips for your teens.

If I Were A Grown Up by: Lucy W.

If I were a grown up, I would live in Hollywood with my husband Justin Bieber. While he was performing I would go shopping and eat at amazing restaurants. We would be happily married and live in a huge mansion. We would have our own security guards and Justin would take me on his world tours. He would buy me six cars, two dogs, and much more. We would be on magazines, everyone’s lock screens on their phones, the hottest couple in Hollywood. We would live happily ever after, and forever and always.

Right now I am reading the Twilight Series. I really like it because something always happens. It’s so hard to put down when I start reading it. I also like the suspense. I am on the third book, Eclipse, and I have really enjoyed the others. This book, I think, has been the most suspenseful. Even though I have seen all the movies, the books are so much better. These books are really good, and I want to keep reading them until the end of the series.

My Wisdom Tale By: Lucy W.

For my wisdom tale I made the moral Don’t underestimate anyone, it doesn’t matter what size they are or what they look like. My wisdom tale is named “Hide and Seek.” I really like this story because it has a good meaning to it and a good lesson. This story is about a fox who is very hungry and is dreaming about having a rabbit for dinner. The rabbit and fox play a game of hide and seek and the fox underestimates the rabbit and thinks the rabbit is dumb. Here is my story, hope you enjoy!

Hide and Seek

By: Lucy W.

There once was a fox named Dusty, she was very hungry. She thought of what her mother had taught her, rabbits are the dumbest animals. So the fox decided to go for the rabbit. The fox creeped up near the rabbit’s hole waiting for it to come out and she whispered.


“Little rabbit come out, come out wherever you are,” said the fox.

“Don’t be scared, I just want to play a game of tag,” exclaimed the fox.


The rabbit quietly said back, “How about we play tomorrow, I will meet you at the old oak tree,” said the rabbit.


“Ok,” the fox happily said, “I guess I can wait till tomorrow.”

That night the fox dreamed of having a delicious rabbit for her dinner. She thought of making a rabbit stew and not being hungry.


The next morning the fox set out to the old oak tree. She waited and waited for the rabbit to come. Finally, the rabbit came but did not want to play tag.


“I think we should play hide and seek. It is so much more fun and you don’t get as tired.”


The fox thought it was a great idea because he could trap the rabbit in a place where it would be easy to catch the rabbit.


“Of course you should go first because it was your idea, right,” the fox said greedily.


“Yes great idea, just remember count to twenty and I can hide anywhere in the forest,” said the rabbit.


The fox started counting and finally came to twenty. She knew that the rabbit wasn’t smart so she checked all the easiest places in the forest like behind a tree, a bush and many more easy places. The fox couldn’t find the rabbit anywhere. She now started checking everywhere and still didn’t find the rabbit. She went back to her house sad and disappointed.


Then she heard, “Come out, come out wherever you are little fox,” sneakily said the rabbit.


“Where are you? I am hungry and you have cheated!” yelled the fox.


The rabbit came out of the fox’s pantry.

Trembling, the rabbit explained. “I have tricked you and I have won the game,” explained the rabbit.


“What do you mean you tricked me? You are not smart and I can never be tricked,” said the fox.


“How come you didn’t catch me and how come you gave up? I was in the easiest place in the whole forest,” said the rabbit.


“What? I checked everywhere in the forest, you weren’t there,” sadly said the fox.


“Did you check my home? I was in there the whole time. You never checked there and I knew what you were planning to do to me. Why would you try to eat me?” said the rabbit.

“Everyone knows the rabbit is the smartest animal in the forest,” exclaimed the rabbit.


“What my mom said rabbits were the dumbest animals, I thought you were just going to chicken out and let me eat you,” said the fox.


“Why would I do that?” the rabbit chuckled, “You shouldn’t have underestimated me.” The rabbit hopped right out the door and said a friendly goodbye.


The fox sat there that night and thought about what he did. He was starving and made a promise to himself to never ever hunt rabbits again.


Moral: Don’t underestimate anyone; doesn’t matter the size or what they look like; Don’t judge a book by its cover.


 

Comic Project by: Lucy W.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did my project on the wisdom tale The Smuggler. I really liked this story because the guard never noticed that the smuggler had a different donkey. The moral of this story was pay attention to the obvious. I really liked this project because it was interesting and fun to draw the comic. I like these kind of projects because it is fun to do your own choice. I used Sketchbook Pro. I like that app because it has a lot 0f options. I thought this project was a fun project.

Open Note Test: Wisdom Tales by: Lucy W.

 

 

 

 

I liked the open note test because it was easier than having to remember all everything. The open note test was also a good experience because we don’t usually have many open note tests or quizzes. The test was straight forward if you had all of your notes. You still had to prepare for the test because you could not just blow it off. You had to know the morals and the types of tales. It was a big advantage to have my notes with me. I really like taking open note tests.

I Am Thankful for… By: Lucy W

I am thankful for my dog, Bear. I have always wanted a dog and I am so glad I got one. He is so fun to play with and have around. He is so funny and he is so sweet. When we first got him he was really small and not as playful because he didn’t know us that well. He is a labradoodle but he doesn’t look like one and we think he has some water dog in him. He is not one yet but will be soon.

iPad Tips by: Lucy W.

A tip for the iPad is always put your things in Evernote. My iPad was updated and the update crashed. I lost a lot of things like my pictures, some of my notes, Skitch and Voicecards. I have started putting all of my notes and some pictures in Evernote so I will not lose them. A good tip is to use Evernote in case you are in this situation.

Community Service by: Lucy W.

My advisory decorated pumpkins to take to the Duke Children’s Hospital. First, we ate lunch and then went back to our school. We each got a pumpkin and got a lot of things to decorate it with. We couldn’t carve the pumpkins because they would rot before Halloween. We went to the hospital, brought our pumpkins, and then they talked to us about their hospital. It was a really good experience and sad too because most of the children there are really sick. At the hospital they try to make the holidays as normal for the kids as they can so they don’t feel any different from other kids.
