DONKEY! ‘’Daniel, wake up it’s breakfast time,’’ whispered my mom. ‘’Okay, I will be down in just a minute,’’ I said. I ran down the stairs faster than the speed of light. I could smell the breakfast cooking on the stove. ‘’Dad, what are we having for breakfast?’’ I asked. ‘’We are just having pancakes for breakfast,’’ said my dad. He handed me my pancake. I started eating my pancake but when I took my second bite, I heard a noise. ‘’Neeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaah,’’ I heard. ‘’Did you guys hear that noise?’’ I asked, ’’that noise that came from the driveway.’’ ‘’No,’’ said my mom and dad. I got up and ran quickly out the door and to the driveway and, I didn’t believe what I saw when I got to the driveway. There was a donkey standing in the middle of the driveway! ‘’Dad, mom there is a donkey on the driveway!’’ I shouted. ‘’What!’’ shouted my mom. My mom came running to the driveway. ‘’Aww, let’s feed it a banana,’’ said my mom. ‘’What, you are not even wondering where this donkey came from?’’ I asked. ‘’Let’s just feed it a banana,’’ said my mom.
I ran inside to the kitchen and grabbed a banana from the fruit bowl. When I got outside I gave the banana to the donkey and it started eating the banana but, after ten seconds, the donkey spit out the banana. ‘’Aww yuck, donkey throw up,’’ I cried. ‘’Daniel, maybe you should go wash your hands since you touched that donkey,’’ suggested my mom. ‘’Okay,’’ I murmured. I ran in the house , went to the sink and started washing my hands. I washed my hands as fast as I could, I was so happy that there was a donkey here, but when I got back out, the donkey was gone. I felt a little weird. A little chill went through my spine. ‘’Where did that donkey go?’’
FELL IN THE DUCKPOOL Daniel Abkenar
September 7 2011
‘’Daniel, get of the Wii,’’ shouted my mom. '’Just a little bit more,’’ I asked. ‘’No now get of the Wii we’re going for a walk in the park,’’ she said. I hate the park, every day we either go sight seeing or we go for a walk in the park. I just want to stay home and relax. I can't change her mind so I guess I just have to go with it. Dad was making sandwiches for the walk. I was just sick of all this sightseeing and walks in the park. “Daniel are you ready,'' asked my mom. “Yes,'' I said. We walked strait out the door with no sound. We took the tube to the park and it was a long ride. I took a nap on the tube and when I woke up we were there. '' Dad I am hungry, can we have our lunch,'' I asked. ''No we are going to have lunch at lunch time,'' he said. I was starving. When we arrived at the park me and my brother Darran and my dad started playing tag. I was it the whole time. After playing for 30 minutes it was lunch time. I was so happy. Every bodies sandwich was a ham, l, and tomato. Mine was a ham and cheese sandwich. After lunch we went to see the statue of Peter Pan. People say that that was were he left to Never Land. After seeing the statue of Peter Pan we wanted to go see the duck pool. My mom said it was very pretty but from my opinion, It was just a pool full of garbage and duck poop. I wanted to see what else there was in that pool but , before I could get any closer I slipped and fell in the duck pool. ”Daniel are you okay?’’ shouted my mom.
“I’m fine,’’ I said, ‘’I don’t know about you guys but that is the last time I will ever go near a duck pool in my life.’’
Whales are amazing animals :BY Daniel Abkenar 4KC
Have you ever thought about any other animal besides your favorite?
For example, if your favorite animal is a tiger, have you ever thought about jaguars, leopards, lions, cheetahs, house cats. Another example, if your favorite animal is a shark, have you ever thought about WHALES. , One way they are amazing animals is that they are giant. Another way they are amazing animals is that they are very intresting. The last reason how they are amazing animals is how they are an endangered species. Well guess what. I am here to prove that whales are amazing animals. One way whales are amazing animals is their size. Did you know that some whales can have the heart the size of a ford focus. One thing that got me interested in whales is how big whale tongue’s can be. They can be the size of a full grown elephant. Another thing, that made me laugh is that some whales can weigh more than 12,000 pounds. A blue whale can weigh more than 120,000 pounds when it is full grown. If you thought that no animal could fit 2,200 pieces of food in their mouth, think again, whales can do that. If you have seen a whale, you might know that whales can be 45 feet long. That is amazing! Now you see that whales can be monster sized, giant, COLOSSAL. Word of reminder, if you have heard of those cookies called whale cookies. Please don’t eat them in front of whales. Another reason how whales are amazing animals is because they are very interesting. Today many people study whales cause they want to learn more about them. The reason why they want to learn about them is because they are barely ever seen by humans. Whale watching is very interesting, especially when you see one. My friends dad is a whale scientist and he got interested in whales when he was 13 when he first went whale watching. These animals are truly a sight to see which is one of the reasons why people become whale scientists. Just think about all the amazing things you can learn about whales. You can learn
things about whales that no one else knows. Whales are VERY interesting animals. Have you ever gone whale watching and saw a whale? Well you are lucky cause whales are on the verge of becoming extinct. There are 3 reasons why. By pollution, being beached, and whaling. But some people care about these animals. They keep them in zoos or aquariums. The rarest whale is the biggest whale. The blue whale. There are only 32 blue whales in Hawaii! If we don’t stop this crisis, whales will be gone, forever. So let’s help these animals and make everybody see how amazing these animals are. Well, there you have it. Now do you see how whales are amazing animals. One way how they are amazing animals is that they are giant. Another way how whales are amazing animals is how interesting they are. And the last reason how whales are amazing animals is how they are an endangered species. Now do you think that whales are amazing animals? Cause if you say yes, than you have been listening to me and you truly care about these animals. Whales being amazing animals is what I have realized.

Cheetahs WARTHOGS STENCH “No escape warthog,ʼʼ The lioness said “Oh fartlesticks I wish I was in bed.ʼʼ The lioness took a step to the front The warthog made a grunt Then it made a cazzunk So never go near, A warthogs stench Cause the only thing that protects you Is the power of the wrench.
Chasing the zebras Having a workout Every day and night Every minute and hour The cheetah runs And when they get tired Same thing, they run again
GIRAFFES Giraffes Mighty giraffes Stretch that neck Stand so tall Giraffes
Run away Zebra The cheetah is coming close Uh Oh no, he got
The dirt runs across the ground Of the meerkat colony So silent So lonely But then Pop Pop Pop, out of the holes like the top of a beer bottle The meerkats are sticks With burning eyes Watching out for hyenas “Clear,ʼʼ a meerkat shouts And back to the ground they go
Having to look for rotting meat Yikes, this one has mold Everyday, nothing good to eat Never had the chance to taste good meat Ahhhhh, LIONS! Such a horrible life
LIONS King of the jungle How proud you must be The only thing they fear Are poachers coming near But nothing else stops them From ruling the amazing pride lands UH OH POACHERS!
