Grade 2 Personal Narratives
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
My Birthday When it was my
birthday I told my friends to come to my
home then they come and give me a present. They gave me
Lego Star Wars, Lolly Pops and a yo-‐yo. I felt extremely happy.
Then we ate pizza and chicken. When we finished eating our food we went out then played some games. We played mushroom tag and another game where we ran around.
Then we w
ent inside and played
Lego and some board games. But the people that were playing with Lego said “I want to be Luke Skywalker”. So they all were fighting. I said don’t fight and lets go out and play another game. So I asked my mom “May I play computer games?” “NO!” Mom said. Then it was time to go. I said “bye bye.” Suddenly my dad come and said ‘I have present for you. “Thank you.” I said. This is why I like my birthday and I can’t wait until my next birthday on May 15th. By Chris

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…” “
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€™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

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.
Fairy princess I’m a fairy princess because I like a fairy princess and a pretty dress and a pretty crown And they have wings and a pretty jewel. And I like the beautiful magic because it can make something that is shiny. I can make shiny pink shoes. I have pretty makeup, beautiful lipstick and pretty sunglasses. 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.
