Most Important Poem

Have thumbs
Hibernate in the winter
They have light wings
But the most important thing about bats is....
They eat bad insects.

My Day at the Market

We had the idea from the story "Saturday Sancocho."  I started out with lollypops and pretzels and bartered for gummy fish and peanuts.  We all had a lot of fun using the classroom for a market.  A lot of people bartered for the chocolates because they are very good.

The Magic Kente

Once there was a fireman who had a daughter.  The fireman was putting out a fire.  Then he saw a kente.  And then he went back to his apartment.  After the fireman put out the fire he put the kente in his pocket.  He brought it home to his daughter.  And his daughter said, "Thank you."  When he got home he gave the kente to his daughter.   The daughter put the kente on her doll.  Then the doll came to life.  And the doll said, "Hello" to the little girl.

Nicole and the Golden Tap Shoes

Once I was in my mom's room getting her something.  And then I saw a box and it said on it in big letters, "Do Not Touch" but I did anyway.  In the box was a pair of golden tap shoes.  I said to myself, "How pretty,"  so my mom did not hear me.  Then I closed the box and put them back.  Then I went in the livingroom and asked my mom if she had any kind of tap shoes and she said, "Maybe I do, anyway, why are you asking?"  I am just curious because I want a pair for my birthday.   Soon it was my birthday.  I had a big party.  I had tons of presents.   Then I spied a box.  My mom said, "Why don't you open it?"   I opened it.  It was a pair of golden tap shoes.  Then I asked who gave me the shoes.  Then my mom raised her hand.  "I did, she said.   I had them since I was a little girl now I want you to have them."  Then one day I asked my mom "Can I go to the tap dance?"  Sure you can, that's why I got those shoes.  My mom put me in a dance class.  From now on I keep them in the safe in my closet.

How the Cookie-cutter Shark Got Its Name

Once upon a time there was a shark. It lived in a little house in the ocean. He loved making cookies with all sorts of cookie-cutters. And then one day he made a cookie-cutter shark. He loved it so much. It looked so good. Then he designed a nice outline and ate it. That's how the cookie-cutter got its name.
