Hopa Narritave writting

Once upon a time there were 11 pelicans they are special breeds they were all happy eating an
d sleeping they fought that the owners would never let them go.
Until 1 day there was an accident one of the birds heard a person saying
something he got all the pelicans up and they listened closely they said”we
should sell them you know how much money were going to get out of this.

They all were petrified they couldn’t speak for days. Then something happened well they were
to sleep the humans pick them up and then put them into a cage then the next day they woke up
and saw that they were in a cage'
. Heaps of people were there some said”how magnificent what breeds are they” or they would say
”how much did the people sell it for”. 

The pelicans were upset but they lifted themselves up and they trained for months and
they waited for the
right opportunity to escape so they planned.
They found the right time to escape on a Friday night November the 15th they found it they had to
be quiet so one
of them quietly plucked their feathers and they unlocked
the cage and they escaped FINALLY said one of them.

They went back to the house but then they saw it was 5 times bigger once again
one of them plucked a feather and got in there but of course you can’t just walk in
and think it is safe there were lasers, security, cameras, so many stuff so they did it step by step.

They succeed without getting caught but once they got to the end they couldn’t
see anything so all pelicans pushed everything one of them found something
into a secret hatch they went in and more obstacles.

But this time it was harder there was sharks and their were fish’s in their and
they couldn’t resist to eat fish’s but one of them pulled them in and they said
it wasn’t worth it so they got pass and found the room so they killed them the end.

Hopa what makes a great sibling?

Have you been a good son? Well to be a good son there are so many stuff but my ideas will make you a better child then you were before. But sometimes it makes you the same. Here are my 3 ideas to be better. Helpful,manners, and to help your kids.

First to be a good son you will have to be helpful around the house so when you get home and your mom and dad aren’t there clean up the house you don’t have to be asked it’s just a simple thing just do work when you are not told to.

Next be respectful and use good manners saying excuse me goes a long way your parents to. When your cleaning and you can't get past just say excuse me so they can move. When your cooking just say excuse me and you can get any tool because using your manners makes you a happier person and when you generous then the next person will and it will be like a chain reaction of kindness.

Also you have to help the kids when there down try lift them up say kind words to them so they can be happy. You also have to help them with their homework because it’s challenging for the young ones because they don’t know that much stuff about reading, writing, or math.

Three ideas for being a good sibling are good son to be helpful around the house, to have manners when cleaning or cooking, and also to help your kids when they are down or needing help for their homework. Do you have any ideas on how to be a better sibling to your brothers and sisters?

hopa what makes a good leader?

Have you ever wanted to know what makes a good leader? You have to have many things such as wisdom, cheerful, and confident but you can be other things but these are my ideas.

First to be a good leader you will have to be wise so make very good decisions. So if u guys get lost you will have a wise leader and then they follow the leader. Maybe he is wise enough that he is going the right path. Like lebron James he passes it to the right person and the person will sometimes get it in.

Next is to be cheerful even if your team is losing clap or if your team is winning You don't know how long they have practiced they probably had no sleep and stayed up all night.

Also you have to be confident because when you make a speech your words will come out wrong and your legs will shake. So you have to stand up tall like your proud of being the leader.

Those are my 3 ideas to be an excellent leader you have to be wise,confident, and cheerful and it doesn't take that much skill to make good decisions or clap for your team or even to be confident so you can stand up and not be scared.

In the story we have 3 humans and 1 bear, The 1 bear was lonely
#and didn’t know what to do but the 3 humans had a
house and they had nice beds, nice ps4,
and nice breakfast. The 3 humans made breakfast.
They made porridge but they went for a walk and they left to get milk.
The bear smelt something a very gamey smelt he followed and then his sent stopped he smelt
FORTNITE he had a very curious face on thinking what to do play the game or eat the bear had
nothing to do so he played the game.

He played for 27 minutes and then stopped he was wondering if he could take a nap because
it takes 3 hours for the boys to finish so he took a nap for 2 hours. 2 hours have passed
and he woke up he started to get hungry and looked for food but he couldn’t find any so then
he stepped his game up and he killed a dear for his food” it was delicious said the bear”.

And then played games but then something happened the boys came back with 5
milks he saw that the door was opened so then he said” I told you to close the door
said the brother” they were confused. He said” I did” they had shivers down their spine
they all thought it was the ghost they went in with the vacuum they started it and thought the
ghost will get sucked in.

The bear on the other hand was terrified he shut down the game and hid. the vacuum found something
under there they were confused they lifted up the blanket and found the bear. He cried and
cried and they said” its ok we were scared of you” he came out and said” t-thank you” he sounded
very scared he came out and they all lived a happy life together.
