A DAY AT DUANE READE
By Rhea Kairouz
Gabriela, Miss Forrest and I wanted to know why people go to
Duane Reade. We also wanted to know how people felt when
they were shopping there. So we decided to take a field trip and
interview a few people shopping at Duane Reade. We made two
different charts. One to interview employees, and one for the
customers. We wanted to know how they reacted to our
questions. We found out people were shopping there because
they needed prescriptions, stuff for their baby, medicine for their
feet, candy, filters, etc. We had a code on our chart to mark
what kind of mood each person was in. Look at what we found.

“Harry Potter books are full of adventure
and magic. They are fat and detailed , in
other words they are very juicy, which
makes you want to read more.”

“A true feast for anyone who has ever been
lost in a book.”

Here’s what we figured out.
 At first we were a bit scared to talk to strangers and
interview them, but then it got better.
 Customers were more comfortable talking to children.
 Employees were too busy to talk to us, but a few answered
our questions.
 A few customers hesitated to answer our questions because
they didn’t know our reasons for asking them. Some of
them thought it was a survey for Duane Reade.
“When I read one of your books, I feel
hypnotized. They are so spellbinding…”
- Ava V.
Harry Potter books are for kids’ ages of 10
and up, Inkheart/Inkspell is for ages of 12
and up. Magic tree house is for ages of 7 and
up. These books are all fiction. I enjoyed
them very much and I hope you do (if you
read them)…

JOKES WE FOUND
by Gabriela and Rhea
Have you ever wondered if every city was like New York City?
Well, I’ve got your answer. Only a few cities are like NYC. It
is really dirty, cars pollute everywhere, and there are broken
cups on ground and people’s garbage. For example, I see
young teenagers who throw all their paper plates, cans and
wrappers on the sidewalk. People are always yelling! Taxi
drivers scream at each other any
Q: Why couldn’t the Tyrannasaurus hit
the baseball?
A: Because he was a nervous Rex!
Q: Why did the tomato turn red?
A: He saw the salad dressing.
However, NYC is also a great place to live. Have you ever
been to Times Square at night? Or taken a walk in Central Park
during the spring? Or gone sledding in the winter?
Despite the dirt and the noise and all the polluters, NYC is a
great place to live.
Q: Why did the boy eat his homework?
A: Because his teacher said it was a
‘piece of cake.’
