Going to  the  zoo  for  sleep  over!!!  

By Anita   When  we  are  driving  to  the  zoo  it  took  an  hour  and  I  got  car  sick  and  I  felt  that  I’m  getting  dizzy.  But  I  was  so   exited  so  I  just  didn’t  think  about.  When  we  were  in  the  zoo  I  was  really  nervous  because  it  was  all  dark.   When  we  were  there  it  was  summer  so  it  was  very  hot  but  there  were  little  winds  blowing  at  us  so  it  was  not,   really  really  hot.    And  we  didn’t  need  to  sleep  on  the  floor  we  can  sleep  in  the  zoo’s  house  when  we  looked   out  of  the  window  we  can  see  lot’s  of  animals.  We  can  even  feed  animals,  in  the  zoo.  We  can  also  learn  and   see  baby  animals.  The  baby  animals  are  nervous  but  they  still  look  really  cute.  I  saw  a  gorilla.    The  gorilla  was   very  funny  but  I  hate  gorillas.  When  we  went  home  there  were  chickens  on  the  road  so  my  dad  got  out  of  the   car  and  tried  to  shoo  them  away.    When  we  went  home  mom  bought  a  new  dog  for  me,  I  named  him  Cherry.   He  was  good,  smart,  funny,  and  cute!  I  can’t  wait  to  go  back  to  the  zoo  again.

Halloween By  Ashley  

What is  your  favorite  holiday?  I  really  like  Halloween.  Last  year  Halloween  was  so   fun.      We  walked  on      a  yellow      line  to  show  off  our  costumes.  Then  we  sang  a   song  called,  Morris  the  Little  Spider.    It  was  fun  and  when  we  finished  everyone   clapped.  Then  we  went  to  get  candy  from  other  classes.  I  got  a  couple  pieces  of   chocolate  and  I  thought  it  was  a  little  too  sweet.    We  also  played  some  Halloween   games  where  we  all  had  a  real  pumpkin  and  we  cut  it  and  we  counted  who  has   the  most  seeds  in  the  pumpkin.  We  had  about  32  seeds,  we  didn’t  win  but  it  was   fun.    When  we  played  games  we  ate  some  candy  at  the  same  time.  Do  you  know   why  I  choose  Halloween?  Because  it  is  fun  and  interesting  to  write  about.  My   favorite      candy  is  the  ring.  I  was  dressed  like  a  princess.  My    mom    was    dressed     like    a    witch    and    my    dad    dressed    like    a    spider.    It  was  October  31.  It  was  very   cold.  I  felt  very  interested  in  all  the  activities.  I  can’t  wait  for  the  next  Halloween.                                                                              

Disneyland Have  you  ever  been  to  Disney  Land  before?    Well  I  have!    When  I  got   there,  there  was  a  garden  with  Mickey  Mouse’s  face!  My  family   checked  in  and  I  took  a  few  pictures  with  Aladdin  and  Jasmine.  After   that,  my  brother  and  I  wanted  to  play  with  the  water  fountain.  Then,   my  Dad  and  I  took  a  scary  roller  coster  with  real  bats,  caves  of  gold,  and   dinosaur  bones!    I  wanted  to  go  again,  but  Dad  said  that  we  needed  to   pick  up  my  brother  &  mom.  They  were  waiting  for  us  at  Dumbo’  s  roller   coaster.    After  we  were  together  again,  we  went  to  look  at  Harry  Potter   clothes.  Then,  we  went  to  a  Disney  Land  restaurant.  We  shared  some   lemonade  &  spaghetti.  After  lunch,  we  got  our  face  painted,  played   Dumbo  again,  got  a  spooky  safari  adventure,  played  a  boring  merry  go  a   round,  road  warrior  trucks,  played  shooting  balls  in  the  ball  pit,  went  on   a  pirate  water  roller  coaster  &  got  a  few  signatures  from  Mickey,   Donald,  Miney,  Goofy  and  Pluto.  When  we  were  finished  playing  the   games,  it  was  night.  After  a  few  seconds  I  got  a  huge  headache  because   loud  horns  blasted.  They  were  popping  my  ears  off!  They  were  having  a   parade!  I  saw  bubbles  &  fireworks.  After  the  parade,  I  bought  an  Ariel   set  &  went  home  on  the  Disney  Land  bus.  I  flopped  on  the  bed  when   we  got  home.  I  had  such  a  fun  day!  I  felt  so  happy!  It  was  all  thanks  to   my  parents.  Would  YOU  like  to  go  to  Disney  Land?   By  Ashley  W

Writing My Poem About Jungmin, My Sister                Can  you  imagine  what  this  story  is  about?   I  think  this  story  is  the  best  story  ever!   This  story  is  about  writing  my  poem.   It  was  October  2  and  there  was  my  classmates  and  Mr.  Anderson.   It  was  windy.  It  was  1:30  in  the  afternoon.  It  was  in  the  playground.   I  cried  because  I  bumped  my  head  when  I  was  on  the  climbing  bar.   So,  I  mean  I  fell  down  when  I  was  trying  a  new  thing,  so  I  cried.   When  everybody  was  reading,  (except  Mr.  Anderson)  I  sneezed  a  lot.   And  Mr.  Anderson  was  talking,  so  I  listened  carefully.   “Stop  reading,  everybody.  I  want  you  guys  to  write  15  minutes,  and   write  poems.  For  example,  I  like  basketball  basketball  basketball.  Like   this.  You  don’t  need  to  write  many  rhyming  words.”   I  woke  up.   I  walked  to  Mr.  Anderson’s  desk.   I  asked.   “What  can  I  do  now?”  

“You can  write  poems.”  

Yipee! I  was  so  glad  that  I  can  write  poems,  too!  

But…….. It  didn’t  take  long  about  my  feeling.   Because  I  should  think  what  the  poem  is  about.   Phew………   And  I  thought  and  thought.   I  thought  very  very  very  veeeeeeeeeeery  hard.   And  do  you  know  what  was  gonna  write  it?   It  is………….   My  sister,  


And………………………….. I  should  think  again,  because  if  I  don’t  know  what  I’ll  write,  then!!!!   I  can’t  write  about  

Jungmin ,  of  course  about  other  things  like  

the second  grade!!!!!!   But………….   I  get  it!!!!   So  I  wrote  quickly,  because  I  should  write  quickly  about  my  feelings.  

<My Lovely  Sister>   Lovely  Lovely  Lovely  Sister   Sister  helps  me  Homework  Lovely  Lovely  Sister   If  I’m  crying  always  helps  me  Sister.   Sometime  funny  sometime  smart  I  love  you  Sister!!!!!!   Lovely  Lovely  Lovely  Sister   If  I  give  sister  a  mat,  she  will  give  me  a  cat.   A  cat  and  a  mat.   I  love  my  sister.   GOOD  OLD  Sister   Phew………….that’s  my  poem.   Poems  are  killing  me.   I  was  so  tired  that  I  wanted  to  DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!   When  I  was  walking  to  Mr.  Anderson’s  desk,  suddenly……  

Ashley W.  said  “May  I  see?  May  I  see?  Please~~~~~~~Lovely  Lo…”   “

Don’t look!’’

I cried.   And  Mr.  Anderson  asked.   “What’s  going  on?’’   “Oh,  here  you  are!  Can  you  check  my  poem??’’  

“Of  course!!!”   And  quickly  read  (Ashley  W  read  it  too):                                                      “  <My  Lovely  Sister>   Lovely  Lovely  Lovely  Sister   Sister  If  I’m  crying  always  help  me,Sister.   Sometimes  funny  sometimes  smart  I  love  you  Sister!!!   Lovely  Lovely  Sister   If  I  give  sister  mat,  she  will  give  me  a  cat.   Cat  and  a  mat.   I  love  my  sister.   GOOD  OLD  Sister   Wow.  That’s  a  great  poem!!!!”  Mr.  Anderson  said.     I  learned  that  making  poems  is  very  fun.   I  was  glad,  and  happy.   And  next  morning,  he  asked  “May  I  put  this  up?”   I  said  yes,  and  that  made  me  excited.  I  love  writing  poems.

About my  Mom   Do  you  care  about  your  mom?  Well  let’s  see.  I  started  caring  for  my  mom  when  I   was  5  years  old.  I  started  with  making  cards  and  buying  roses.  I  love  my  mom   more  than  my  dad.  When  I  grew  bigger,  I  continued  to  buy  roses  and  making   cards  for  my  mom.  I  also  started  to  get  prizes  for  my  mom.  My  dad  would  take  me   to  the  store  to  buy  these  things.  And  sometimes  I’m  too  lazy  to  make  any  cards  or   songs.  So  I  don’t  worry  about  it.    I  only  make  cards  and  buy  roses  on  my  moms   Birthday,  Mother’s  Day,  and  Valentines  Day.  I  get  to  choose  the  decorations  on   the  roses.  In  September  I  bought  nail  polish,  blush,  and  primer  to  give  to  my  mom   and  that  made  her  very  happy.  I  was  so  proud  of  myself.     When  my  mom  is  out  I  make  cards  and  snowflakes  out  of  old  stuff  to  give  her.   And  finally  I  always  get  a  kiss  and  a  hug.  This  make  me  feel  loved  by  my  mom.    


Toroko Gorge     I  am  going  to  tell  you  about  the  coolest  place  EVER!  It  is  Toroko  Gorge.  I’m    going  to  tell  you  what  I  did   now.  First  I  hopped  in  the  car.  It  was  a  5  hour  drive!    I  was  so  carsick  I  wanted  to  puke.  I  really  wanted  to   just  jump  out  of  the  car,  but  luckily  I  didn’t  puke.  I  was  laughing  with  joy  when  I  got  out  of  the  car.  We   were  with  the  Bogles  .  I  was  so  so  happy  and  tired,  my  family  and  friends  were  so  tuckered  out  that  we   wanted  to  take  a  nap.  In  the  hotel  it  was  nice,  it  even  had  toothbrushes  and  floossers.    I  was    so   delighted  that  I  was  almost  screaming  !  I  was  galloping  all  over.    I  said  I  am  so  glad  to  be  here.  My  friend   Lucie  had  an  iPad  of  her  own;  we  were  playing  a  whole  bunch  on  it.  Ashley’s  friend  Lydia  was  having  a   very  fun  time  with  her.    It  was  Monday  when  we  left  for  Toroko  Gorge.  It  was  sunny  outside.  We  were   happy.  It  was  summer.  I  was  wearing  a  T  shirt  and  shorts.    It  was  September  30th  my  little  brothers   birthday.  He  got  his  presents  in  the  morning.  The  next  day  we  went  on  2  hikes,  they  were  so  fun.  On  the   first  hike  the  whole  time  I  was  saying  OH  YAH!  The  next  day  we  swam  a  whole  bunch.  Then  we  hopped   in  the  car  and  drove  for  5  hours  AGAIN!  I  was  sad  to  leave.  So  have  you  been  to  Toroko  Gorge  or  not   cause  I  have?                                                                                                                                                          


Christmas By Kristopher Do you like Christmas? I think it is the coolest thing ever! My mom takes me to a store. I go into the store and then I saw a game that is so cool. I played the game and it is so cool and fun I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go home. My mom said I have to go home so I am very mad at my mom. My mom said we have to eat lunch. So I ate my lunch and my lunch was so yummy and I ate one more. I am so fat. I forgot what I had for lunch but it was delicious. After lunch my mom took me home to sleep in my bed to take a nap. When I woke up I played with my brother at my home. I told him about the game I played earlier. He asked me where I said I went to when I played that game which was so cool. I bought a toy for him because he did not go. Next time I will take him. At 6.00pm my family ate dinner on Christmas day and I am so happy because I can eat Christmas dinner. I ate my dinner and I took my gift and I opened it. It was a toy car and I was so happy I had anew toy car. When I finished my dinner I ran down to play with my new toy car. My car is so fun and I share it with my brother. Then I said this toy is very fun. My brother opened his gift and his gift was a plane. My brother shared his toy with me. When we finished playing we all went to our own room. We took a bath then we went to sleep. We are so happy about Christmas. Â

Soccer By  Shido   I  played  the  soccer  game  with  Yu  and   Sawa.   Playing  the  game  was  very  fun.     Sawa,  Yu  and  I  played  the  soccer  game   on  the  same  team.  We  won  the  game.     I  played  the  goalie.     I  like  soccer  game.    


Trip to Japan Every summer I go to Japan. Last summer I went with my mom and dad. First I got in a car and I was on my way to the airport. Then I got out of the car. Then I got on an airplane. I like to go on airplanes because it swings. When I’m on an airplane I like to watch TV. When I got to Fukuoka we landed and went to a train station then we got on a train and went to the hotel. When I got to the hotel I put my bag down and went down stairs because think I need to eat something. I felt very happy. The next day we went to ride a bike in the mountains. It was a little bit hard because we had to ride up a mountain. I think it is a good place for camping so I took the tent out then it is evening then I go in to tent then the next day I came backk on a airplane to Taiwan. I can’t wait until I go back to Japan again.

I’m going to sing a fame song to Kaylee, Yebin and Mr. Anderson. I will sing on April 19th. It will be my fabulous birthday party.
