A Personification Poem By Elina, Noel, Chris, Jared
It cleans up the streets
like people on Earth Day.
like a hungry stomach.
It gulps snowâ€¦
like neighbors in fall.
It has a big, yellow snout
like a monster.
â€œHUNGRY FOR MORE!â€ says the snowplow.Filed under Christian, Elina, Jared, Noel, Personification Poems | Comments (3)
An Onomatopoeia Poem by Jared and Noel
DOOSH! BOOM! Goes the kidâ€™s foot kicking the ball.
Whhhhhh- it soars through the air.
Boing, boing bounces the ball.
Chic, chickâ€¦ I got it! OUT! OUT!
Click clack, click clack go the kidsâ€™ feet.
â€œItâ€™s a foul! Youâ€™re out!â€
The kicker runs out.
Dum, dum, dum, rollâ€¦ Mr. Farrell pitches the ball.
DOOM! BOOM! HOMERUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We went to see the Ishangi family presentation. They showed us stories from Ghana by dancing. It was so exciting to see the laundry dance because a little girl had a giant laundry bag balanced on her head! I was wondering if it was heavy or not. During one song that same girl did flips and cartwheels. They sang Che Che Koolay and did a dance. Che Che Koolay means to thank God for food and for clothes and other things. They also taught us how to do the love and family dance. In the family dance they passed love energy on and a girl stood on top of a woman. In the food dance the girl acts like sheâ€™s passing out seeds and they grow. She danced with a plate. At the end, one of the Ishangi women gave us good advice how we should live our lives. The most important thing was to stay in school and listen to your mom and dad and teachers.Filed under Leslie, Noel, Samantha S | Comment (0)
A Memoir by Noel
I went to Hershey Park during the summer and it was me, my aunt and my cousins too.
I saw a candy machine filled with jaw breakers. â€œWow, I want one!â€ I said to my aunty. She gave me a quarter and I got it.
I took a bite and suddenly my tooth came out of my mouth. I felt sad. My aunty gave me a ziplock bag and I put it inside.
After I lost my tooth I went on a roller coaster called the Boat Dragon. It was a little scary but fun. My cousins went on a hot air balloon ride. Iâ€™m afraid of heights so I didnâ€™t go on it.
I also went on the Water Boat. I had to wear a bathing suit because thereâ€™s lots of splashes and waves that get you all wet. The boat moves all around.
When I got home I put the tooth under my pillow. I fell asleep and when I woke up I found twenty bucks! I felt so happy!
My day at Hershey Park was so much fun!Filed under Memoirs, Noel | Comments (3)
