Welcome to Maggie and Emily's website.
We are students at the University of Delaware studying elementary education. We have created two acrostic poems and a writing activity based on Lemony Snicket's The Bad Beginning, which you will find below.

One night, when the children were at Mr. Poe's house, they received a horrific postcard...
Dear Dirty Little Orphans,
How are you doing? I hope you are enjoying your stay at Mr. Poe's because it won't last for long. If you think things are bad now, just wait until I get my hands on your grimy necks. You thought you were so clever to try to outsmart me with your scheme, but remember, I am always watching. It's rather ironic, don't you think? After all, I'm supposed to be rotting away in jail right now, but in reality I am having the time of my life on a far away and mysterious island. Have fun while you can because I will be back for my fortune. I will have my revenge on you disgusting and repulsive brats. Send my best to Mr. Poe.
With much loath and detest,
