Mary had a little lamb

Mary and the little lamb were best friends, and one day the little lamb decided to follow Mary to school. The lamb didn't let Mary see him, and awhile later he decided to come in the school to see Mary because he was bored and wanted to see his friend and have fun. Mary didn't notice at first, but then the kids whispered to her. Mary tried to hide the lamb and it worked for a bit, but then the teacher said the lamb needs to go home. Mary said, “Please can the lamb stay until after school. He will be good. I promise.”
The teacher said, “O.K., but if there’s one incident the lamb has to go home.”
The rest of the day Mary and lamb were very good, and at lunch they pigged out and played. After school they cheerfully walked home and played all day and the lamb never came to school again.

Gymnastics

EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT GYMNASTICS IS AND KNOWS WHAT YOU DO, BUT EVERYONE MIGHT NOT KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, SO HERE IS A LITTLE INFORMATION ON GYMNASTICS. WELL, THERE ARE four MAIN EVENTS AND THOSE ARE
beam, bar, floor, and vault.
THIS SPORT TAKES BALANCE, FLEXIBILITY AND PASSION, AND THERE ARE five GIRLS WHO STUCK A FAMOUS STICK IN GYMNASTICS. THEY ARE CARLY PATTERSON, NASTIA LIUKIN , FAN YE, BETH TWEDDLE, and ELENA PRODUNOVA.
THE PERSON WHO INVENTED GYMNASTICS IS A MYSTERY BECAUSE THE SPORT IS NAMED AFTER A MAN NAMED FRIEDRICH JAHN.
GYMNASTICS IS CALLED GYMNASTICS BECAUSE YOU WORK IN A GYM AND THAT IS WHERE YOU TRAIN. THE WORD GYMNASIUM MEANS “TO TRAIN NAKED” BECAUSE IT COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD GYMON. THE FIRST GIRLS TO WIN AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL WAS IN 1828, WHICH WAS THE GAMES OF AMSTERDAM AND WAS A TEAM MEDAL. CHALK IS USED TO PROTECT YOU FROM SAFETY AND AVOID SKIDDING, and ALSO TO HAVE FAST ROTATIONS AND TO GRIP TIGHTLY ON THE BAR. LEOTARDS Are A GOOD THING TO WEAR BECAUSE THEY FIT UNDER CLOTHES REALLY WELL, AND are VERY COMFORTABLE. THEY WERE INVENTED BY THE MAN NAMED JULES LEOTARD, BECAUSE THEY WORE SKIN TIGHT CLOTHES WHEN HE DID HIS ACROBATICS. SHAWN JOHNSON WON THE WORLD CUP IN 2008. On MARCH 1ST IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, SHAWN USED TO MAKE UP HER OWN SKILLS AND AFTER 9 MONTHS, SHE MADE A VIDEO OF ALL HER GYMNASTICS. SHAWN GOT 1ST PLACE IN 2006 IN THE US NATIONALS, AND SHE ENDED UP RETIRING BECAUSE OF A KNEE INJURY DURING GYMNASTICS.


skype

Skype is an app that you can use to call people who are out of town, out of state or that you haven’t seen in a long time. You can talk and see them face to face, and you have a private account and only the people you want to Skype is the only people on there.

serve on school uniform

I believe that we should wear uniforms because nobody will be made fun of because we are all wearing the same thing. It’s cheaper for our parents, because we don’t have to buy tons of clothes. We only need clothes for weekends and summer. You don’t have to worry about what to wear the next day and have a better comunity and look normal

movie review

this movie is about a girl Britney has to move across town to a different school and has to do a different cheer squad and she promised to never cheer again and she ended up cheering. this story is clever because they make it so more interesting and it’s very appropriate because it could teach kids a lesson on never give up anything you love so much and this movie was made in 2006, the setting is l.a and she loves to cheer and meets a guy named Jesse and falls in love and then her ex comes to take her to prom and she goes and she finds out he has been cheating on her and gets mad and leave and ends up getting kicked off her new cheer leading squad and does she get back on for nationals
