Nursery Rhyme

Five ducks got caught!
By Maritza Contreras

Early in the evening five ducks went out on July 17, 1999.They were playing on the Malibu Beach in California. They didn't notice the wolf. They went over a sandy hill and four of the ducks weren't paying attention, and one duck was in the water. He didn't see it, but the wolf was swimming to catch a new victim. He finally got one of the ducks. The mother called for all five ducks, but only four went home. The next day, the four ducks went out, but only three came back. The mother thought the other two were playing games. The exact same day the three ducks went out, but only two came back. The mother was a bit worried. Then the two went out to the beach, but one came back. The next day the only duck went out. When the mother called, none came back. The mother went out that day at dawn. The mother didn't come back. That one duck tricked the wolf, and the five ducks came running back when there father called. No one knows what happened to the mother. We don't know if the wolf’s partner has captured her. All we know is that the wolf has been caught.

School Uniforms

I believe all students should not wear school uniforms because you won't be able to express yourself.They don't look very good at all. Kids will be made fun of if they wear a school uniform. You don't want to wear the same outfit day after day after day. It doesn't show your personality when you wear school uniforms.People should be able to show what they believe, and everyone would look the same and people would not like that.


Finding Nemo is about a fish that goes on an adventure. He got caught by a scuba diver. Nemo was at fish school, when his dad told him not to swim out that far. He didn't listen.Nemo was knocked out, but he woke up in a fish tank in a dentist's office. Firs,t the fish didn't like him, but in a while they finally liked him. They helped him get back to the sea. This girl comes in one day to get her braces clean, and she wanted a fish. Her last fish died because she didn't feed him/her. The dentist got Nemo, but this fish pushed him onto the toilet and flushed him. He finally went back to sea, but his father was looking all over the place for him. Sooner or later they found each other and they were happy until this big net caught their friend and they had to try and save her. Nemo's dad told all of the fish to pull and swim to the bottom of the sea. They finally were free. They were as happy as can be at the end!
