Animals by Eva

I am a zookeeper,

First, I take care of the fish.

At night, I clean their cages,

And give them their food dish.

It was time to go home,

The time of day was night.

I went outside,

It was very bright.

Therefore, I went home,

I was snuggled very tight.

And outside it was still,

Very, very bright.

Thanksgiving Meme by Alex P

The Weather by Alex P

The weather outside is not very fun.

It is wet and mucky

Nobody likes it so please go away

It makes nobody happy

Why is it here

It makes us all sad

Honestly, it should just disappear

It looks like food

It’s actually kinda good

But not for playing

Awesome Saturday by Keith, Jack, Brody, Skylar, and Joey

It all started at are basketball game the final score was 33 to 18

Then Keith and Brody went to potbelly it was Brody’s first time there. They have the best milkshake place Keith likes, besides Culver’s, and their grilled cheese is really good. So for lunch me and Brody got a grilled cheese, doritos and a milkshake. Brody got the same, and then Keith and Brody went to Adam’s game.

Keith and Brody went and watched the game before Adam’s game waiting for Joey and Jack. When their game finally ended and Adam’s started they came over. We started by playing football (Jackpot) and then we played wall ball but then Brody got it stuck on the ceiling so Joey used a soccer ball to get it down. Then some person that worked there said no bouncing balls, which is what the sign said. We went outside with the football than we went back inside and sat on a bench and talked with Leo ( Leo is a kid from IHM) and then Ben came and we talked with Ben and then we went to watch Adam’s game. Then some girls from the school stole are spots and thought we were in third grade, so we told them we were in sixth grade. They asked other people if we were in sixth grade until they finally believed us and they said they were in seventh grade, but we don't believe them. Keith went to his parents and grabbed his little brother Paul and showed him to everyone and then Anthony came and Keith showed him to Anthony and then Keith gave Paul back to his parents and then we went to the car saying bye to Anthony and Ben.

Then we went to Keith’s house and then Keith gave Joey a tour. During the tour in the basement I heard someone coming down and it was Skylar, and he said we should play pool, so we did for 1 minute until we got bored. We went outside and saw Adam, Charlie, and Will. Then we asked them if they wanted to play capture the flag but they said no. but we wouldn’t give up so we said we will play 1 round of lightning they said no then we said 2 rounds of lightning and they said yes. So we played that then capture the flag. Then we went inside and played battlefront ll a Star Wars video game it was fun and we drank Fresca

The pizza arrived. The sound of sixteen footsteps shook the house. The kitchen was filled with the smell of melted cheese and greese. The pizza was from a place called Paradise pizza (not as good as JTs). They had an assortment of various pizzas, there was even a pizza called Tsunami pizza which contained the weirdest toppings such as ranch and pineapple, etc.

Six Thanksgiving Myths by Emma

  • Americans have always ate Turkey at Thanksgiving

  • Thanksgiving was celebrated as a Thanksgiving festival (it was actually a Harvest Festival)

  • Thanksgiving was a Family Oriented Holiday

  • Thanksgiving was celebrated as an annual holiday (After the first celebration, it wasn’t celebrated for another decade)

  • Thanksgiving was celebrated by the pilgrims (At this time the pilgrims didn’t call themselves pilgrims, they were called saints)

  • Pilgrims wore all black, funny hats, and buckles on their shoes (This idea wasn’t declared until the 1800’s when a painting demonstrating this idea became famous)
