      The main message of the story is don’t let people get the best of you.I know that because she was made fun of when she ate limabeans.Some people said she was weird but she didn’t care so she ate all the limabeans she could. some people laughed when I said I liked soccer but I didn’t care and I played soccer on my own.That is how I know the main meesage is don’t let people get the best of you.

      The main message of the story is that it is Okay to be different. I know this because in the story Camilla caught a disease called the bad case of stripes. When she went to school she was made fun of so the next day she stayed home.After many visits from doctors no one could cure her.Then an old lady came and she gave her lima beans and the stripes went away.At the end she ate lots of lima beans no matter what other people said.

      I think the main message of the story is even though you’re different you can still be friends with other people. I know this beacuse in the story Camila got coverd in stripes. she wen’t to school the next day and all of the boy’s and girl’s teased her. she felt very sad. But then after all of the crazy changes that happend to her this old lady said I can cure her. Then she cured Camila with lima beans. Camila at them and she was back to her self again. In my life I felt sad because most of the girls had clothes from a store and I felt left out. But then I wen’t to that store in Florida and I got clothes there and I was happy again. that is how I know the main message is even though you are different you can still be friends with other people.

      I think the main message of the story is don’t judge people just bcause they’re diffrent. In the story Camila got a bad case of the stripes and got teased by here friends at school. This made her feel sad and she did want to be differnt from all the kids. So she when she decide to stop worrying about what others thought and eat the lima beans, she got better. from eating the lima beans.

      I think the main message of the story is sometimes it doesn’t hurt to give people a chance. I know this because in the story the boy had an Enemy that kept being mean to him and so he told his Dad and his Dad said he had to be nice to his Enemy for just one day and he did. Then he was nice to his Enemy and all of a sudden he started to like his Enemy. Also because in the story he made a Enemy list and his Enemy Jermey Ross was the only one on the list. In my life I had a Enemy and she wasn’t very nice to me then the next year she started to be nice to me and up to this point she is my friend. that is why I think the main message of th story is sometimes it doesn’t hurt to give people a chance.

      I think the main message of the story Enemy Pie is even though sombody treats you poorly it does not mean they do not have a good side.I think this because at first Jermey was being mean to the boy so he put Jermey on his enemy list. The boy told his dad about Jermey and his dad made an enemy pie. His dad said you have to spend a day with your enemy in order for the recipe to work. So he did and Jermey was really nice and they played all day. When Jermey asked to go in the tree house the boy said hang on because he wanted to take down the enemy list. The boy thought Jermey was more nice then before and ended up being a friend. That is why I think the main message is even though sombody treats you poorly it does not mean they do not have a good side.

      The main message of the story Enemy Pie is to give the person a chance. The boy thought that Jeremy was not nice to him because when he struck him out in baseball Jeremy laughed in his face and he didn’t invite him to his party on his trampoline. He liked his dad’s idea about the enemy pie because he wanted to get Jeremy back. Once Jeremy came over to their house he was actually being nice when they were playing and the boy learned that he was really nice. After dinner his Dad brought out the enemy pie and the boy thought it would taste terrible but the Dad said it was good so Jeremy tried it. Jeremy said it tasted really good and the boy tasted it too. The thing that the Dad tried to do was show him that to spend the whole day together he would get to know Jeremy and find out he was nice. The Dad knew that the boys could be friends. It was really a friend pie.

      The main message of the story is to make friends with your enemies it might be fun after all.Jeremy was the boy’s enemy, but when he got to know him he was lots of fun. Jeremy knew how to throw a boomerang.Then Jeremy let him jump on his trampoline. Jeremy and the boy had lots of fun together so they became friends. When a kid on my hockey team bullied me we became friends. I hope that jeremy and the boy are still friends.

      The main message of the story is dont bully other people. I know this because in the story Jeremy wasn’t being very nice to the boy. He didnt invite him to his trampoline party but invited his best friend. That wasn’t very nice. His dad’s plan was to get the boys to play together. In the end they found out that the boys really did like each other. They became good friends.

      Dear Mrs.Firth,

      I think Dundas is a Suburban community because it has homes spaced out like a Rural community.I also think Dundas is a Urban community because Dundas has lots of people like a Urban community.That is why I think Dundas is a Suburban community.

      Dear Mrs.firth
      Dundas is a suburban community. It is a suburban community because there are not many apartment buildings. Dundas is in between rural and urban because there are a lot of people and also there is a lot of space but not as much as there is in a rural community. That is why Dundas is a suburban community.

      Dundas is a suburban community.I feel it is a suburban community because it is located outside of Hamilton. It also has lots of houses and also has open space like conservation areas,parks and forests.People need to drive cars and we have a medium population in Dundas.

    • mwatson3764 12:46 pm on November 24, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Dundas is a suburban community because there is not as much space as rural but more space than urban. Suburban areas have not as tall buildings as urban. You can go faster to your neighbour’s house in suburban than rural. The population in urban is higher than suburban. The population in suburban is higher than rural. That is how I know that Dundas is a suburban area.
