                                      "The 3 R's"

Three it's a magic number
Yes it is, it's a magic number
Because two times three is six
And three times six is eighteen
And the eighteenth letter in the alphabet is R
We've got three R's we're going to talk about today
We've got to learn to
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
If you're going to the market to buy some juice
You've got to bring your own bags and you learn to reduce your waste
And if your brother or your sister's got some cool clothes
You could try them on before you buy some more of those
Reuse, we've got to learn to reuse
And if the first two R's don't work out
And if you've got to make some trash
Don't throw it out
Recycle, we've got to learn to recycle,
We've got to learn to
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Because three it's a magic number

Yes it is, it's a magic number
3, 3, 3
3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36
33, 30, 27, 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, and
3, it's a magic number



How to Recycle Your Old Books

We all have old books lying around the house, some of which we probably don’t need and might get rid of at some point. The great thing about books is that someone could always use them. If they are outdated, than that means they are a collectors item or are on their way to becoming one. If you have a bunch of old books in your home, there are plenty of ways that you can try to recycle them.

8 Ways to Recycle Your Old Books

1.    Donate your old books to a local shelter, hospital, or senior center. These places could always use new reading material.

2.   Sell the books on Amazon(internet). Set up an account (it’s really simple) and list your books for sale. Price them to move and you’re sure to get some money for those books.

3.   Sell them on Ebay(internet). Sometimes Ebay fetches more (sometimes less) money than Amazon. Check the recent completed items to see recent ended items.
4.   Give childrens books to friends that are having babies. You can never have too much reading material for knowledge hungry minds!

5.   Use old comic books to wrap  presents for your family. A unique, eco friendly touch kids will love!

6.   Donate them to a local library.

7.   Sell them at a yard sale, where you could also get rid of other clutter that’s been driving you nuts.

8.  Call a local school to see if they need books. School libraries and classroom libraries are always in need of books.

Why Should You Recycle Your Old Books?

Books will end up in a landfill, like most everything else that’s thrown into your trash. While pages of books are usually biodegradable, sometimes they aren’t. Glossy pages take longer to biodegrade, book bindings take a long time, and magazines contain printer inks that shouldn’t be thrown into the environment. Whenever possible, you should use the above 8 steps to get recycle your old reading material. If you cannot reuse them in those ways, then try recycling them by ripping the pages out of the book and recycling those pages with the rest of your paper recyclables. The binding might be tough to find another use for, but at least you’ll be recycling the biggest part, the paper itself.


Ways to Reuse Simple Household Items

Recycling is very important, but even better is reusing. Recycling actually uses energy and transport time and fuel to get the items to where they need to go. If you can reuse an item yourself, that's more energy, time and fuel saved, as well as less emissions produced. From your old metal cans, plastic bags, bicycle tires, packing peanuts and computer keyboards, there are many ways to find a second life for simple items around your home by reusing them.

Animals Story

Let us read together.
                                               THE GREEDY CROW

        Mr. Crow was very hungry. He flew everywhere to look for food. Suddenly, he saw a piece of meat on the ground. He flew down to get it. He took the piece of meat up to a branch of a nearby tree. He was very happy.
        As Mr. Crow was about to eat, he saw Mr. Hawk. Mr. Hawk had a dead rat in his claws. Mr. Hawk did not reply. He flew off as fast as he could. Mr. Crow decided to follow Mr. Hawk. He wanted to eat the dead rat as well. Mr. Crow could not fly fast enough, so he did not get the dead rat.
 While chasing Mr. Hawk, his piece of meat fell to the ground. Mr. Eagle saw the incident. He quickly flew to get the piece of meat. Mr. Eagle flew down towards Mr. Crow. The piece of meat was between his claws.
        Mr. Crow felt very sad because he lost his meal for that day.
