Grizzlies’ World


“Hey you!” “Do ya wanna learn about Grizzly bears?” if ya wanna then come with me on the K9 bus.

Physical Description

Before you’re gonna see a Grizzly, you need to know how he looks so you know you’re looking at the right bear. Grizzly’s are brown like many other bears and they are 7ft long. They weigh 1,500 pounds, but their babies are 1 pound. They have four legs and long claws. Grizzly’s have big snouts, black eyes and short ears. It’s tail is very short so don’t look for a tail when you’re looking to find a grizzly!

Grizzlies are mammals so they are:


Have fur or hair

Give birth to live young

Produce milk for young

Have lungs to breathe

Live on land or water


Well, you gotta know where a grizzly lives or how you gonna find ‘em? Grizzlies live in mountains or forests. They live in the Arctic, Russia, Canada, Alaska, and other cold places. Bears hibernate in caves so a Grizzly bear’s habitat has to have a cave so the grizzly can hibernate but don’t make too much noise a grizzly can be easily awaken!


Well, now you’re gonna learn how that grizzly lives in cold icy places and how it captures it’s prey. Grizzlies have thick fur with a grizzled appearance (that’s how it got it’s name!) which let’s them survive in icy cold places like the Artic. Grizzlies have sharp, fast teeth and can run 35 miles per hour to easily catch their prey.


You gotta know the enemies of a grizzly or ya don’t know when ta leave! The truth is, people are grizzly’s only enemies! This is how we take grizzlies:

Environment: we cut down for paper, fire logs, and other things like that.

Body: We use bear-teeth for necklaces, and we use bear skin for coats. Let’s stop hunting bears!

Fast facts

Here’s some loose things about a bear.

Grizzlies eat plants, roots, berries, fungi, fish, small mammals, and large insects ( ) salmon is one kind of fish they eat

Newborns weigh only 1 pound

They are ¾ nocturnal

They are plantigrade

Female bears eat lots of food before hibernation which is stored in a big hump under her skin so when she doesn’t have any food.

Grizzlies have good senses

Grizzlies have good memories


Habitat – where they live

Hibernation – sleep forever during winter

Nocturnal – awake at night

Plantigrade – flat-footed

Survive – how to stay alive

My Dad is my hero. He taught me how to read, write and how to be strong. He also taught me how to be hard working and gave me good choices. My Dad helped improve me in my skills. He is the one who made me love reading.

My Dad, My Hero!


When I grow up, I wish to be an inventor like Thomas Edison or Alexander Graham Bell. I want to build things with microchips and circuits. I want to be a chef. I want to bake cakes and ice cream and I want to be like Remy from Ratatouille. I want to be an artist like Vincent Van Gogh making drawings everywhere.


I hope to stop pollution so the earth will be clean and the air will be clean. More animals will be alive and we wont breathe polluted air. SAVE EARTH !!!!!!

Wii got the Wii Finalii

Wii were going to our friend Jay's house and when wii got there we saw the Wii. Me and my brother were in disbelief. Wii played the Wii and when wii saw what wii could do with the Wii, wii begged for the Wii at all times. My dad said wii could earn the Wii if wii pass the GATE test. Well wii did but getting the Wii was not as easy as I thought.

My brother started calling stores from the CircuitCity to Fry's but with no luck for months. Soon most of our friends got the Wii until one day at my hardest basketball game so far my Dad and my brother went to Bestbuy where my dad asked "When are you going to get the Wii?" The storekeeper said we have some right now. My brother was just overjoyed. I only got the news after I won the basketball game which made me double happy.

When we got home we plugged the Wii and made a list of rules. Then we gave a nick name to the Wii - "White SKY" and put in all the settings. Then we made Mii's (Mii's are people on the Wii) and wii explored the Wii. Then we played some Wii sports (tennis, golf, baseball, boxing and bowling). I LOVE OUR Wii

Seussikal Musikal

Yesterday evening Joyma and Dennypa took me to Seussical Musical. First we went to Pizza Hut where I got a piece of pizza with cheese in the crust. We left at 6:30pm for the show. It was crowded. At least we reserved seats so we didn't have to find seats to sit.

At the beginning of the show it was like the book "CAT in the HAT". Then it was Horton Hears a Who. Next it was McElligott's Pool, and last was Green Eggs and Ham. Then we came home and I watched TV with my brother.

I think that was the best play ever. My favorite part was Green Eggs and Ham because it is a happy and fast song. I didn't like the sad and not so funny songs because they are sad and slow.

Dead Feet

This weekend we went to Big Basin for backpacking Kamp. We had to walk over 5 miles with a huge backpack filled with stuff for kamping. It felt like I was walking forever. When we got there we gobbled up a whole bag of popkorn in a second. I was eggs-hausted so I took a nap. later for dinner we ate noodles and drank hot chocolate. Then we went to sleep zzzzzzzzz......

In the morning we quickly ate oatmeal and drank hot chocolate. Then we found logs and used them as pretend bazooka guns. My gun broke my friend, Sujay's gun. Then we hiked back again. By the end of it I couldn't walk. My feet were swollen. My dad thought I was walking like a fawn, because I was walking on my toes with knees bent.

Maha, The Smooth(ie) Uncle

Maha Uncle is staying with us for a month. He took us to the movies, the restaurants and bookstores. He gifted to papa a blender called Vita-mix for Papa's birthday. He is crazy about smoothies and this blender makes great, fantastic, excellent smoothies. The blender is so powerful that it can blend anything like vegetables, fruits, cereal and even skin and seeds of these.

He took us to a movie called Ratatouille (checkout trailer). It was a comedy of a rat kook and as you know I love kooking too. Then another day he took us to Fresh Choice. I had apple soda and lots of macaroni. It was so good that I almost over ate. Then he took us to Barnes and Noble. I read Spongebob and the Stolen Crown. Then I read Spongebob and Sand Dollars.

I HAD A GREAT TIME - Thanks Maha Uncle.

The Best Sleepover

Ding Dong !!!!! The door bell rang. Seven people were at the door, three were carrying sleeping bags. We were having a sleepover in our tent. First we put the sleeping bags in order and put the fly on. Victor and Yash did most of the work. Niyati, Priyanka and me disturbed them while working. We had to test to see if we could fit all five people in the tent, and it did. After that we fought to go on the swing. Then it was finally dinner time which we had for a long time. Then we ate desert of mango cream and toffee ice cream. Yashu was upset because he didn't want the mango cream. We watched a movie called "Free Willy" - The Rescue. Later we went back to the tent and played a word game called "Antakshri". Then we slept. In the middle of the night papa came in and sneaked in the tent.

Next morning, we played a little bit and wrapped up the tent. Priyanka broke her tooth and then lost it which made her upset. Niyati, Priyanka and Victor left before breakfast because we had to leave for Monterrey Bay Aquarium.

KruiseAmerica RV in Alaska

Day 1: We came from school and quickly did extra packing and all of our luggage took two big cars. Our friend Vikas uncle went early to our destination Alaska, to pick up the RV. In the car we got all squished up because of the luggage and people - me, papa, mummy, and yashu and Swati aunty together with Vishalu and Carina went in the other car.

Once we reached the airport we checked-in our luggage and waited to board the plane. There was hardly anything to do on the plane except looking out the window - we got some snacks and read magazines and books. I also wrote this story of Alaska. Now my sister is screaming - waking up the whole airplane. We got to Seattle where we bought french fries and burger.

When we got to Alaska we hurried to look for the RV. Of course Vikas uncle was right there with our big RV from CruiseAmerica. It was hard to load all of our luggage. We checked the RV out and then went to a camp ground in Anchorage where we slept immediately. zzzzzzzzzz........

Day 2: Awwwww...... Today is a new day we brushed our teeth and ate breakfast in the RV. Then we played at a park next to the campground. We paid the rent and left around noon to a store. Then we headed to a state park called Thunderbird Falls where we had lunch. Then we hiked for a looooong time all the way to the falls. When we were coming back I fell asleep. Later we drove towards Talkeetna where we had dinner and then I couldn't sleep because I slept too much. We went to latitude 62 where I had a desert called Mt McKinley which had Finally I fell asleep. zzzzzzzzzz..............

Day 3: Everybody is asleep..... where is my brother, dad.... here they come - looks like they went for a early morning hike. We had a super meal for breakfast. We went to a gift shop where I got an Athabaskan flute and Yash got an Alaskan hiker hat. We took a walk to a rocky river then we got the junior ranger program. I watched a mount Mckinley movie and finished a few project in the ranger program. We ate dinner in the RV as we drove to Riley Creek.

Our Favorite Family Movie - Swades

Me and my family have seen the movie Swades many times. In the movie Sharukh Khan was working in America for NASA. But he always wanted to go to India becuase his babysitter was there and he missed her a lot. His manager at NASA finally let him go to India. In India, he met his friend who ran a book shop. He lent sharukh a RV to drive to his baby sitter's house. At the bookstore he meets a girl named Geeta who is a teacher but also the babysitter's helper. She gives Sharukh the wrong direction so that he wouldn't find her.

When he was on his way to the babysitter's house he met a sadhu on the way. He asked him the directions and Sadhu said I will take you and got on the van. Then they played a song which is called Yuhi Chala Chal Rahi and it is my favorite song. Everytime we go on vacation we hear it because he is going on vacation.

He finally reaches his babysitter's house where he stays for few days. He visits Geeta in the classroom. There were 16 students in the class. He went there because he always wanted to talk to her. But she doesn't like to talk to him because he is trying to take away the baby sitter. During his stay he figures out that India is very good but needs a lot of help. So he decides to make electricity for the village because it went out during a movie. Then he orders pipes and many other things to make the electricity from water - called hydro power. They first sent someone to a place where it was dark with a light bulb. They attached to the electricity pipes so it would make light if they were correct.

First time it didn't work. Sharukh then went inside the water and found some seaweed blocking it. The second time it finally worked and the light bulb lighted up brightly. After this project he had to go back to America. On his way back Geeta gave him a spice holder with spice in it. He didn't like America very much because he was missing everybody and the good time he had. So he quit his job at NASA to go back to his own people.

When he reached India he did some wrestling. THE END

Date with Dad

Today, March 3rd 2007, me and my dad had a date. We had decided back in February but we finally got a chance now. It started when morning kame and I kept on komplaining we had to leave. We had to wait for mummy to come back from the gym.

Finally we left for our date. Oops... but we forgot to bring our library card and swimming stuff. Papa made a quick U-turn to get the stuff. Our first stop was McDonald's for breakfast. We bought two breakfast kids meal and had pancakes, hashbrown, McGriddles and chocolate milk. I also got 2 toys - they were Wee Wow Robo-pets. My dad wanted to take our photo but he had forgotten his camera.
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Our next stop was going to be the library. When we got there we figured it was klosed :( . Instead we went to PJCC for swimming. We played in the water with the toy I had gotten. My dad was afraid of the cold water in the outside pool - I had to drag dad into the pool. We tried to do hand stands in the water. My dad gave me piggy back rides in the water and also kept on throwing me up in the air. Then we took a shower and went to a pet store.
The PJCC  Your Center for Life
I really wanted to have a pet. So we went to PETCO. We explored with one of the helpers and he said that a good pet for me was a leopard gecko. We also checked out the parakeet and a fish as a pet. I really wanted to get the leopard gecko because it was cool and I could touch it whenever I wanted. I could leave it for a long time unattended. My dad said I had to research it more and learn about taking care of it before we could buy it. I got upset so we went to Toy's R Us and bought some rocket balloons.

Finally we came back home where I played with my rocket balloons.

Title: Veggie World and The Attack of the Aliens
Series: Veggie World
Author: Karan Nevatia

Skiing in Yosemite

This time I didn't fall at all. I even took some lessons on the steeper slopes

Harry Potter Part I: The Sorcerer's Stone

Year 1: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Series: Harry Potter
Author: J.K. Rowling

Part 1 finally helps me understand the meaning of some of the words used in part 2 like Quidditch (a game), defense against the dark arts, baslik, etc.

Harry Potter escaped a pure evil lord nicknamed "he who must not be named" when he was a baby. All he had left was a lightening shaped scar, which made him famous for wizards. Harry gets hundreds of cards from Hogwarts but the people he lives with don't like wizards and burn all the cards he gets. They move very far away and the wizards still deliver cards.

Then finally a wizard from the school comes to take Harry. He tells him what wizard books he needs and supplies. When Harry goes to Hogwarts he gets sorted into a house. There are 4 houses Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff and Harry gets sorted into Gryffindor. To get inducted he had to sing a song: “Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts……..” Everyone started the welcoming feast. Percy the prefect told everybody inside Gryffindor the password to get into the common room. He whispered “pig snout”.

After a month strange things start happening at Hogwarts and Harry figures out that Prof. Quirell is trying to get the Sorcerer’s stone to make gold. Although before he thought it was Prof. Snape because he was always bad to Harry.

Before Slytherin had won the house cup but then Neville, Harry, Hermoine and Ronald got extra points for guarding the stone. So Gryffindor won the house cup instead.

I liked this book because I was interested in how Harry escaped he who must not be named and got to Hogwarts. I also got lots of ideas for my own book.

Harry Potter - part II: The Chamber of Secrets

Year 2: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Title: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Series: Harry Potter
Author: J.K. Rowling

I read the second Harry Potter book first because that was the only one I could get right away.

In Harry's second year at Hogwarts strange things happen. He speaks and understands snake language. He hears monsters coming from the Chamber of Secrets. He hears them inside human voice. Lots of people get attacked while the monster called Baslik was let go.

Then finally Harry figures out that Ron's sister Ginny Weasly opened the Chamber of Secrets - which is a Chamber inside the girl's bathroom. He also figures out Tom Marvalo Riddle is "he who must not be named"'s helper and is trying to kill Harry. He saves Ginny and kills the monster called the Baslik.

This book was really mysterious and exciting and pulled me into the story so much so that I could not put it down. I am now really looking forward to reading the first Harry Potter book and all the others in the series.

This Means I Won the Lotto

One day when we were eating in a restaurant my dad wanted to buy some drinks from the mini-mart. I went with dad and there I asked dad to buy me and my brother a lottery ticket. We had to fill a form to choose our numbers and turn into a lottery ticket. I chose 25 as my Mega number and 7 18 21 34 40.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

We decided to watch Super Lotto on TV on Saturday night. We missed the show but checked on the Lotto website and I got two numbers correct on my ticket.

I won $2 and decided to buy a lottery ticket with that money. This time I didn't win anything. But it was all a lot of fun.

Field Trip to the PLANETARIUM

The third graders were studying planets and because I am in a mixed class we all got to go to the planetarium. On our way, I sat next to my best friend Leon. Leon’s mom was driving us for this field trip. We were going to San Mateo College Planetarium. At first I was curious about the planetarium but when we got there it looked very boring, it was all white on the outside and there was nothing to do. We had to wait a long time outside before we got in.

Finally when we got in it looked very cool – it looked like a theater and the theater part was a dome. But everything we did was not cool at all. We were given special glasses which are used by astronomers. These glasses help identify the kind of gas a star is made up of – neon, helium and hydrogen are some of those gases. Then we watched a movie which showed How the Universe began – Did you know that the whole universe was created with a ‘BIG BANG’? Then it talked about all of the galaxies and planets in our Solar System. It also talked about the asteroid belt and the stars. I thought it was really interesting to learn about the stars but everything else I didn’t care much about. I also have a planet puzzle which I never liked.

My Piggy Bank Pops and Graduates

One day my dad told me and my brother to race to a thousand dollars to get more dollars. I knew that my piggy bank wouldn't hold a thousand dollars - so I got a bank account inside Citibank.

The first time I deposited $140 which I got from my dad and my grandmother. I plan to save all my money inside the bank.

Saving money is a good thing and I hope you will do too.

My Field Trip to Woodside Store

My second field trip from school at Woodside Store was the best! (My first field trip before I started blogging was Redwood Grove Nature preserve). After reading in class we got to go in the school bus to the Woodside Store. My whole class went and I sat next to Leon, my friend.

Once we got there we had to wait long to do the activities, so we ate our snacks. Outside we started playing with toys that children played with when the store was made. When we finally got in we watched a slide show on all the people that came before us. Then we did a treasure hunt where we had to get the right object that was hidden in the store. Then we split up into three groups for three activities - being a shopkeeper from before, cutting wood shingles, and washing clothes like before. We first washed clothes and hanged them to dry. Then we got to be shopkeepers and get all of the things on the customer's list unlike today where the customer has to bring their own stuff. If you wanted a shirt you would have to take length and width and then give it to the shopkeeper - shopkeeper will give it to San Francisco who makes the T-shirt. Then we went into Doctor Trips and dentist office and we got to see some real teeth that were found underneath the store. Then we made shingles outside to make the roof of the house or store by smashing a big piece of wood on to a saw then the saw cuts a shingle off. After that we had to go back to school.

I really liked the store and the activities because it was Kreative just like me!!!!

My Sick Kristmas

It all started from the last day of school. It was super rainy and I got wet because I didnt have a jacket. The next thing I knew was I got sick with the FLU. I went straight into the bed when I got home - sneezing, coughing and wheezing. Nani gave me a special kind of tea to drink. I laid in bed the whole time, I never got up and never ate anything - I was feeling horrible.

Next morning I felt a bit better but my brother and my mom got sick. That meant I gave everyone the flu. Soon every one was sick in the house including me, papa and nani. The next day was Christmas and we all had to sleep inside our beds.

Next morning I looked under the christmas tree, I found presents that I already had. Then we had to go to our christmas party at JoyMa's house. When we got their I slept the whole time and missed the rest of my christmas.

I had a very bad christmas and never want a christmas like this again.

The Formation of DJ Fools

On Tuesday when I got the basketball at recess, Leon wanted to take the ball too. But when I went to the playground Leon asked me if we could play with the ball together. Then I asked if we could be friends. He said only if we could make a team. I said O.K. We only had us two in the team. I asked if we could name the team. Leon said every team needs a name. DJ FOOLS !!!! I shouted. Leon said that was a good team name.

Later, I met with Nicky while I was waiting to go home. I asked if he wanted to be friends. He said yes. Just then my mom came. I asked Nicky if he wanted to be part of DJ Fools. Yes was the answer. Then we both walked home.

The Life-Sized Game of Candyland

I looovvvve candies!!!!! Every time I see sweets I go for it. I also love to play the game of Candyland. One day inside my Wednesday envelope I got invited to a life-sized game of Candyland. Of course I had to go for it so I begged my Dad to take me.

On that day, my dad and I drove to the King’s community center in San Mateo. The line was very long to start the game. We saw a magician while waiting in the line who played different tricks. Once we got in they put a smiley face on my ticket. I had to take off my shoes to work on the live game-board. We entered the game and I had to jump on the color when it was called out. At each place we got to play a game and got a prize. At the ginger bread plum tree we had to throw a small bean bag on the tic-tac-toe board. At peppermint forest we played ring-toss. After the game we got a big candy cane. At gum-drop mountain we had to throw pennies at a huge gum-drop. Then I got a small candy cane. At licorice castle we got to play bull’s eye and got a piece of licorice. At peanut brittle house we bowled and got a wrist-band. At lollipop woods I played basketball and got a lollipop. At cream lake I played hockey and got bubbles. At molasses swamp we got to throw ball in a basket and gloppy gave some putty. At candy palace we got to play golf and King Kandy gave a gumball. Then we got into the palace to play games and do art.

First I got a picture with Santa. He gave me another candy cane. Then I made some reindeer food which was made of 4 things – sugar for helping, sparkles for seeing, wheat for main food, and raisins to help fly better. Then I got face painting of monkey on the side of my face. After that I made a X-mas card for my little sister and also made a bracelet. After that we ate lunch at Taco Bell and went home. This was one of my bestest days I ever had!

My Baby Sister Simran

One day at 5:30 am I had to go to the hospital to get a new baby. When we got there I saw on a paper what the baby was doing – there were some ink prints that looked like mountains. We waited till the doctor said it was time for surgery.

My dad had to wear a nurse suit to get in the surgery room. I got some of the nurse suit too but didn’t go inside the surgery room. At first we did not know what the baby is going to be - a boy or girl? We never knew until the surgery was over - we saw the nurse cleaning then my dad came out of the surgery room. My dad told us that it was a GIRL!!!!! Everyone was very excited to hear the news. My dad took Simi to clean her again this time we got to see her close up. Then we left the baby alone.

We went to see mummy she was laying in a bed.We were late for school so we left the hospital when we got to school we got a tardy slip when we got out we went to our friend’s house. Our friend took us to the hospital again we saw mummy laying down and we got truffles. We also touched the baby, she was soft when we touched her. Then we had to go back to our friends house to sleep.

School Library: My Favorite Place in School

I love to go to my school's library at lunch recess. This is the only time that I can go there to draw. Drawing is my second love (reading is my first). Today I made 4 monsters and a paper plane. I named the monsters Treetop, Froglike, Alienstar and Yo. My plane works for 3 different airlines - Star Airlines, Tornado Airlines and Sun Airlines.

I also go to the library to get books. I borrow the books and take them home. I go there every wednesday to get the books. Although, I can go there anytime once I am finished with my work in class. I started with Zack Files books this year. I also like to take the Magic Tree House books but now I have read them all.

Sometime I spend time in the reference section to help do my class projects. When I write, I circle words which I think are spelled wrong and then I use the dictionary to find the word. Last year, I had to do a project on Bears and I used the animal reference books for the story I was writing.

Sometimes I go to the library to help other people do their work. I help them understand the questions and figure out the answers.

Because of all these reasons the Library is one of my most favorite places in the school.

Father's Day without Dad

This time on Father's day my dad was not there. He went to Carolina on a business trip. He saw US Open Golf Championship on his visit. We waited for him 3 days. Monday he came back. We were very excited to see my dad. I went home with my dad. We ate a father's day cake. It was very very very yummy. I gave him a cookie. He slept with me that night. It was very fun. I am glad he came home and then celebrated father's day with us.
