The First Pet Dog

A long time ago there was a lone wolf.  He found a cave.  Inside there was a girl.  The girl adopted the wolf.  The wolf started to change.  The girl gave the wolf a bone.  The wolf ate the bone.  The wolf howled.  They both had a good day.  And that is the story of the first dog.

There once was an otter named Ollie
She always was very jolly
She came to us, and had a big fuss
But them we made Ollie jolly.

My Trip to China

Once upon a time I went to China. I ate with chop-sticks. Then we went and looked at the porcelain pottery. Then we went back to the hotel and had jasmine tea. Then we went to the Great Wall of China. Then we went home.

Reflection: I like my work because it has lots of information on China and it really talks about true things in China like porcelain.

My Mt. Fuji Adventure

The day my class and I climbed Mt. Fuji we had to answer some questions.   We made it to the top in three days.  While I was climbing I met an avalanche.   After we got to the top, it was so beautiful!  I took a picture of it.   Then we climbed down and there was another avalanche!  After we got to school, we went home.
