Mermaids on the Rocky Shore
Mermaids in the water
Mermaids in the sea
Mermaids always whisper to me
Holding my hand when I swim
The mermaid said, "Hi, my name is Kim."

The Most Important Thing
Have a flat tail
When you pick them up they feel like first graders
Eat's clams and some other things
But the most important thing is the otter not to get dirty.

Annie and the Wild
by Jan Brett
My Favorite Part
My favorite part of this story is when the moose got his nose stuck in the window. It was funny. I think he has a big nose. And the animals really wanted more corncakes. And I think Annie really got annoyed. The animals were very funny in this story. This story was one of the funniest stories I heard! And the bear was funny.
I think it is great to be doing this work.

I would pick Morgan to be my partner. She is very neat and she takes her time. If I were doing a report with her I would ask her to be the author. Morgan is very friendly. And that's why I want her to be my partner. And also she is very nice.
A hungry mouse went to the park to eat cheese at 8:00 in the morning because he was hungry.
Today we did something fun. We made up a group and learned how to make a lightbulb work. We had a battery, wire, and a lightbulb. I was the first one to get the lightbulb working. It was fun. We had to take the wire and wrap it around the lightbulb and put the end wire on the bottom of the battery. Then it will light up.
