A Personification Poem By Lena and Samantha
â€œClick, clickâ€ goes the stapler
As it puts things together.
â€œMmmm, I want to staple more!â€
It releases itâ€™s babies,
â€œBye bye babies, I will miss you!â€
Its mouth chews on paper corners.
BOOM! Goes the stapler like a person stamping.
â€œMunch, munchâ€ donâ€™t get near my teeth!
An Onomatopoeia Poem by Will and Samantha
Clap, Clap goes Ms. Cristella
â€œTake out your word work notebook
and take home folder.â€
go the students feet to their cubbbies.
Ms. Cristella reads a story.
Mrs. Fischer calls, â€œBus One is here.â€
Feet in the hallways.
â€œAll the buses have been called.
Teachers please bring your bus cards down.â€

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)
Striped scarves- yellow and orange
Strips so fuzzy and warm.
T.V. Weathermen says what it is like outside,
â€œIt is going to be freezing outside!â€
Hot, steaming matzo ball soup
Matzo balls in my mouth cooling off
So softâ€¦ â€œYUM!â€
Fresh enchiladas cheesy and spicy
Warm, hot pellets in my hand
stacked altogether and smooth
The Polar Express
I was in my bed when I heard a whistle and saw smoke. I got my slippers on and tiptoed out the door. I saw a man. He said, â€œAll Aboard!â€ I wasnâ€™t so sure if I should go on. But then I asked where they were going. â€œWe are going to the North Pole,â€ he said. So I thought. â€œHmmmâ€ But then I went on.
I saw lots of kids. They were serving ginger tea with a gingerbread cookie. I saw little things that looked like a little dot. But when we got closer they got bigger. Then we saw Santa!
He was going to pick the first kid to get a present. He picked another kid. I was so mad. But he picked me for the second kid. I felt a little better. Then we went on the train to go home. When it was my stop I went in my bed and had happy dreams all night. THE END.Filed under Polar Express Stories, Samantha S | Comments (3)
A Memoir by Samantha
One day my Mom and Dad said that we were going to Disney World. â€œAaaahh! Yippee! Yippee!â€ I was so excited.
When we got there it was 4:00 but my Dad said that we should go shopping and we went. I saw a bunch of keychains. My Mom and Dad said that I could have one.
It was hard picking just one! Then I saw a perfect one! It has the Cinderella castle and Mickey Mouse on it!
After, we went to the car. When I tried to close the door I rolled out and then I lost my keychain. â€œI am so mad!â€ I said. But my Mom said that she would buy a new one!
She bought me one and I was so happy. It was the same one. I was so lucky!
My sister also had one. It has Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Pluto, and Donald Duck and Daisy. My brother had a skeleton from the Pirates of the Caribbean.
But I love my keychain best of all!
